Spaz Attack

Thoughts from a big spaz who has lots to spaz about.

Thursday, July 01, 2010

A couple of days ago, while I was driving and the boys sat in the back, I heard Chase screaming. I turned around and saw Tyler was pinching Chase's cheeks. I told Tyler to stopped and asked him why he did that and he said that Chase hit him first and that the cheeks were the best place to get him back. He said, "All the other places have bones and I don't want to break his bones so I had two choices- his butt or his cheeks. Since Chase is sitting on his butt, I had to pinch his cheeks, mommy. Are you glad that I didn't break any of his bones when I got him back?"

They crack me up.

So, this week, I'm taking a little "vacation" from work. Jason was suppose to take this week off as well so we had these plans of going somewhere but he ended up just taking Monday and Tuesday off so we didn't go anywhere. I just made him work around the house. :) We were suppose to go to SF this weekend but I didn't think I could handle the ride back and forth so we will be in SD to visit Jason's sister for the 4th of July weekend.

Did I tell you guys that Tyler and Chase have pretty different personalities? It's so fun to see Chase grow up and see more of his personality come out. Tyler is my timid, sweet boy. He listens very well usually. He is so good that, if he does something that he doesn't think he should be doing, he will tell us immediately what he did wrong even in cases when he really didn't have to tell us. Chase, on the other hand, is very mischievous and loves to be silly and wild. He is rarely scared of anything and NEVER scared of getting in trouble by me. I've done everything legally possible to see how much it would take for him to be scared of me. The worst trouble I dole on my boys is to put them in the dark garage. I remember Tyler being mortified if I ever brought up the idea of putting him in there. Just the thought of it would put him to tears. Chase, oh my, GOES IN happily and practically skips out of there. He will literally laugh in my face when I get mad at him. Sometimes, he personality is so akuda matada that I laugh back at him in utter amazement. Anyways, here is one more thing that they do that is very different- Tyler will suck a lollipop for hours until it is all gone, Chase will bite and chew at a lollipop and it will take him less than a minute to eat. They are both very happy boys but Chase takes it to another level. Everyone who hears his crazy laugh says it sounds like a drunk old man!!!

I finally fulfilled a dream of mine last week. Ok, don't laugh. Ever since Chase was born, I've always wanted to take the boys to Medieval Times. Like, seriously, I have no idea why but I just always really wanted to take them there....maybe cause I think Medieval is a place that little boys will like? In any case, the boys got really into it, screaming for their green knight. I was practically falling asleep during the "show" and have no idea what in the world was going on (I still don't know if there was a story or if the long haired men were just fighting to just fight, hmmm...) , but at least the food wasn't as bad as I expected and I didn't have to think about dinner that night. It's worth it to just not to have to think about dinner. :)

You know what makes me feel bad? When I'm out with the boys late and Jason comes home to an empty house. Jason doesn't say anything but I just feel like we should be home to greet him at the door. I'm very old fashioned like that. The kids should be washed and I should instruct them to run to the front door like they've been expecting Santa Claus to come through the doors all day long and I should know what to serve for dinner in case he is hungry. Anyways, I write this because I was visiting Claud yesterday and totally lost track of time and came home around 8:30 with the boys. I was like Cinderella because I looked at the clock and practically ran out of the house so quick, I think I lost a shoe or child. I think I scared my mom, who was there as well, because I looked like I was worried and she probably thinks that Jason will get mad  at me. I have to call her today (once I find my dang phone) to reassure her that it's NOTHING that Jason has ever said, its something that I put on myself because if I were a hard working man, that is what I would want from my wife!

Did I tell you guys that I have pegged a little girl to be Tyler's wife? She's only 4. haha... Jason thinks I'm crazy but I'm all for arranged marriages! He's like, how the heck are you going to know what this girl is like when she is older? Well, for one, I can look at her mom because don't little girls turn out like their moms? and I really like her mom (Yo, Christina!)! And since her mom and I already get along, that's perfect so we could go on family trips and stuff! :) Anyways, I have high hopes for this girl. haha...I jokingly told her mom that I will make sure Tyler has a good, stable job when he is older and she was like, good! haha...moms can be so weird!

Two of my cousins graduated high school this year. The last of our generation to graduate high school. Man, makes me feel so old! Matt and Tiffany, so happy for you two!

Yesterday, we had a playdate with my future daughter in law and Tyler threw a fit that he would not go into the ladies' restroom!!! He kept saying, "I'm not a girl! I'm a boy!" It was so funny cause he was in the ladies' restroom just the day before without any problems but yesterday, I think he got embarrassed in front of his wife! (haha, maybe I'm taking it too far by calling her his wife! haha!) My boys are growing before my very eyes...first, it will be not going into the ladies room and then they won't want to hug me or kiss me....oh, just the thought makes me sad!

Can't believe it's already July! Oh where, oh where does the time go? We've been in this house about a year now. Can't believe that my BABY will be starting kindergarten in the Fall. I get nervous just thinking about it. Not because I don't think he is ready, but I don't know...what if someone is mean to him? What if he feels like crying and I'm not there to hug him and tell him it will  be alright? I guess I better let this little bird fly on his own wings for a bit. :(

Ok, why do my posts always turn sad?!!! haha... Hope you have a safe and relaxing 4th of July weekend!
