new hair product

I tried this new product on Bellas hair. it worked really well on

curl control, and lasted all day!

fallen officer!/HelpsWhenNeeded a week ago, a small community next to ours lost an officer to a shooter. Being from a small community, this is a hard hit and also doesn't happen often here at all. The shooter shot another officer and his K9 and they recovered after hospital stays. Above is the fallen officers facebook page. If you could take time to visit and like the page to show support, I would appreciate it.!/FondDuLacHeros This is Officer Williams page, he was also shot twice as well as his K9 unit, that was in the car. this is the local news paper with all the stories.

2 years ago

Sometimes I like to look back a year or two to remind myself
just how much my kids have grown.
This here is Bella on her second birthday. Her 4th is coming this saturday. FOUR!

This here is Jax. He was 3-4 months at this time. I miss my baby.

This is my oldest. I didnt think he changed that much but looking at
pictures I"m reminded just how much he did.

Nothing new from this part of the woods

Nothing new from me really. My husband and I got caught up in netflix recently and we've been watching the older seasons of Jersey Shore. I'm not sure what pulled me to that show, but then again, its like a trainwreck and you cannot stop yourself. Plus the guys on there are pretty much eye candy.

I also got what I thought what was a good idea and decided our apartment needed to be painted. Good idea, yes. Its nice and fresh and clean now but sometimes I should just smack myself when I think of these ideas.

So theres really not much to report. I've been low key and just hanging. We got more snow, theres a shocker.
hopefully soon something will happen and I can post about it. Tomorrow the repair guy comes to look at the fridge. Maybe that will spark a topic for me.

its just me again

We did our holiday cookie decoration this weekend.
It required quite alot of serious thought.
Again, with the seriousness.and the Nekkid young one.
Like this is new to us. He tootles around in a diaper
most days no matter how many times I DRESS HIM.

Annnnd..more serious decorating going on. I think hes longing
for a cookie..cause since he's basically nekkid, whats to get dirty?

This is his baby. Not "his" but he's taken custody of it.
We have 2 of these type babies.."baby alive". For whatever reason
this baby also is nekkid most of the time although It did come with
clothes. And my niece handed down some size 1 diapers which she
(the baby) still floods in. But its a diaper. and its reusable!

This is how he rolls. Literally out of his bed onto the floor. I came into
our room one night to check on him. Alarmed I couldn't find him...
There he is.

Dearest young child

Dearest young child...
While momma approves and praises you for getting out of your bed while feeling the urge to puke(what a big boy trying to make a run for the toilet), it was awfully nice of you to puke in mom's hand on the way there. Not that it was your fault though. I mean I WAS the one who tried to catch it from going everywhere. Not to mention Momma is a nurse and should KNOW better that you cannot catch someones puke and contain it soley to your hand.

After making it into the bathroom, you then puked on the bathroom floor, which luckily for me, I haven't scrubbed ...yet. Daddy thought it was appropriate to come spray the towels and your pjs (which were on the pile O puke on the floor) with lysol to "fix" the situation. I guess his heart was in the right place.

But your final number of pretending to finish puking in the toilet, flushing the toilet and slamming the lid with authority really melted my heart.

You're lucky you're cute.
and that I love you.
enough even, to attempt to catch your pukes in my hand.
without gagging even. I should get a sticker for that.

Late sunday night

Like the title says, its late sunday night. Actually, now that I really looked at the time, its 12:04am, so its really MONDAY. Not another Monday!!!!!ahhhhhhh!!!!

I've been in a funk. I'm not really quite sure why. I"ve been reading and checking up on people and reading blogs but yet a funk I've acquired. Maybe its the constant cold, with one day sneaking in there of 40 degree weather... What I consider 40 warm and welcoming? Here in Wisconsin, after how many months of below zero temperatures, and piles and piles of snow, and more snow, freezing rain and other wintery havoc we've ensued, I'll gladly welcome a 40 degree day. We had one earlier last week. I opened the windows and let the fresh air in. I breathed in the teasing warmer winds and hoped for spring. Knowing full well in Wisconsin we could possibly still recieve much more snow and wintery type days. So it was just a tease and set us back with more snow. Just again, as the snow was almost melted, we spent one afternoon watching the piles of snow slide down off the roof and onto the ground below us. Sounded kinda scarey actually! You'd hear this...I described it as "avalanche" sounding rumble and BOOM the snow hit the ground. I got the van washed eagerlly thinking we'd be out of the woods. Not a chance as cold and snow hit us again. Winters in Wisconsin are long and tiresome after a while.

We had my inlaws visit earlier last week. They had gotten back in Feb from Jamaica and since every time they attempted to visit us, we were hit by snow. They have about an hour drive out to us so traveling in the snow was ill advised. So they finally made it and brought back stuff for everyone. I recieved this darling bracelet I have not taken off yet. I'm not a fancy jewerly type of girl, but this one is really pretty and hopefully someday I'll get a decent pic of it. I don't wear much jewerly period. Just my wedding ring and this bracelet.

Then yesterday my two younger ones went with my husbands father and two hours later he called to say as he was on the way home with our two children, Bella puked in his truck! So I bathed her and cleaned her up and grandpa got to go home to clean up his mess in his truck. She had acted fine when she left, but turns out she had some type of stomache bug and was really quite miserable. She's quite the diva on a regular basis but a diva with the stomache flu was not fun. At all. I met whole new levels of whining. Now you're saying to yourself, hey, sick kids are allowed to whine. I get that, but goodness... I thought my last nerve was shot. Luckily for all of us she slept through the night and woke up this morning a better, less whiny girl. Which makes momma happy since she's stuck to my hip 20 hours of the day. I sanitized this house, scrubbed floors, did everything I could to hopefully(knocks on wood)prevent the other people remaining in this house not to catch the same thing. We even went for a car ride today out to Staples and Walmart. Sounds borning but it wasn't. It was a nice get away outta the house, I opened up the windows when I left to air out the germs, so to speak. It was near 40 today but cloudy so it doesn't count as a spring tease.

The kids and I cannot wait for spring. Bike rides and going to the park, getting out of the house without snowpants and boots and mittens and hats and freezing your tuckus off while being outdoors. When I was younger I LOVED playing out in the snow. Not so much anymore. I mean seriously they don't make snowpants in momma's sizes ! (well maybe they do but I'm not willing to pay an arm and leg for those either)... and I'm tired of losing hats and mittens.

So maybe that's what my funk is about. Maybe I lack vitamin D, which the sun gives off naturally. Maybe I should invest in some Vitamin D. Since the sun seldom feels like coming out. Or if I was rich, I could afford one of those light boxes that have been proven to work . Its like a box(duh really?) with this huge light inside, that you can plug in, put in a room and it helps your body feel like its in the sun . It also has been proven to help with depression,etc.

I do know that since my 2 year old has began sleeping in his toddler bed, he finds it cool to get out in the middle of the night at times. Not always but the other night, I caught him coming back IN to our bedroom(we have a 2 bedroom apt so he stays with us) and he was NEKKID. lol. I sit up and slap/punch my husband(narrowly avoiding the sleeping diva between us) and say "We have a naked cruiser!" and in the light of the nightlight, a pair of cute little butt cheeks we saw. We cracked up, even though it was like 3am. I diapered up his cute little behind and tucked him back in. The other night I heard him moving around and then BAM, He body slammed me! Then to make matters worse, he kicked me outta bed! I didnt know whether to laugh at this or cry. The next night he carefully climbed into our bed and layed on my back, singing his snuggle song that goes "rocky rock, rocky rock"... which then he rocks with you. I think he was trying to sweet talk his way into our bed, unlike the night before bodyslamming me for fun. Last night I thought "what could come tonight" but thankfully(knocks on wood) he stayed put.
