I'm a little obsessed with Instagram these days. Anyone can be a photographer! :) The boys channeling Timothy Green.

i usually never check tyler's daily homework. he just does it, puts it in his backpack and takes it back to school. yesterday, i got his spelling sentences back and these are some of the sentences he wrote:

1. I have very good health. I know because I went to to the doctor.

2. Wolf Gang Mozart is a great composer who composes.

3. If I am able to, I will do the splits even if I break my legs.

4. A couch is soft like a pillow, dog, stuffed animal, jacket, etc.

5. That watch meant to be there so leave it or else.

6. Jesus can heal anybody who is so completely hurt.

7. You can soften the pillows with goose feathers (although they are already comfy.)

8. I can relate to my cousins Kate, Sara, Ethan and Mason.

9. He showed a sign that means refill please.

10. That crumb he ate was special.

11. What's the big deal? We will both get in line.

those were some of the sentences. i think kids are so funny. his sentences made me laugh.

because i am a mom and a daughter, i can relate to this song and it always makes me tear up.

it also reminds me of claudia because, although she is only 18 months older than me, she has been my second mom in a way. of course, we fought at times growing up (i can't imagine any siblings NOT fighting), but she is my best friend and i have had many best days with her...just ordinary days that you have day in and day out. she has always been on my court, always encouraged me, always protected me, always made sure i was laughing and smiling even when she couldn't, tried to teach me, always let me hold her hand (and feet) when i was scared, and always took care of me...even when we were wee little girls. no matter what, i know she will always have my back. my life wouldn't be my life without her.

so, to claudia park wang, i dedicate this song to you. i love you very much. i had the best day with you today.

i found my old tommy page cd! who didn't like tommy page back in the day? no one! one of my close childhood friends was the president of the tommy page fan club...haha... anyways, i vividly remember singing this song with my friends at a sleepover in elementary school...brings back so many memories!!

random thoughts this morning:

1. sorry about the lack of posts! i thought i would post more on blog with the new phone but i'm getting more into instagram and posting pics there. i have to figure out how people are "finding" me on instagram though. are there privacy settings on it? there must be. i had no idea people could see the pics that i had posted! i guess it is true that nothing is really private in the world of the internet!

2. i love the change of schedule with daylight savings time. i love sleeping earlier and waking up early since i am a morning person! i've been waking up at 5:00 since we the change. not that that makes me take the boys to school any earlier or anything, but i just like waking up early.

3. pool should be done next week! wahoo. i can't wait. it's taken longer than expected (due to rain) and i'll be happy once i don't see workers in and out of the backyard. i guess we'll still have landscapers though until that is done...rats!

4. tyler was sick yesterday and didn't make it to two activities. it makes me feel guilty... maybe i didn't feed him right or remind him to drink water at school, or maybe he is not getting enough sleep. whatever the case, i am sure it is my fault. is it normal for mommies to feel guilty about everything?!

5. to the relief of everyone who was sick of seeing their reflection off my forehead, i got my bangs cut yesterday. when tyler saw me, the first thing he said is, "you look silly!" a boy from tyler's class said, "you look really young." i'll take that! haha... i'm feeling quite old lately! I can't believe i'll be 35 in january! oh dears!!

6. on the schedule today: electrician coming by, then mall to buy some boots, and then costco (which has regained its spot as my #1 favorite store).

7. i spoke to a friend yesterday who was so riled up about obama's win. she said it makes her blood boil and scolded me for not voting and not getting involved in the whole process. haha... just thought it was really cute to see her get SOOOO emotional about propositions and stuff. i will try to be a little more "political" next election, i promise! j, calm down, it ain't the end of the world, girlfriend!

8. chase got two mosquito bites the other night and for some reason (like i'm a bad mom), i felt the need to tell him "did you know that if i suck the 'venom' out of your skin, i will turn into a mosquito?" so i pretended to suck the 'venom' out, made some choking sounds, and then jumped up quickly and starting fluttering around like a mosquito. first, he started laughing. then all of a sudden, he started bawling! he said, "i don't want you to be a mosquito!" omg! it was so funny. maybe he was just tired. who knows. tyler, who was sitting and watching this whole spectacle kept rolling his eyes and making faces at me like, chase can't be serious. it was so funny. something i don't want to forget. the following day, i played whitney houston's i will always love you song, and chase said, "turn it off!! it reminds me of the mosquito!!" haha..... kids are so friggin cute. i will be beyond sad when they are teenagers and don't hug and kiss me the way they do now!

ok, gotta run! should take the boys to school now, though i NEVER want to take them to school. if i had MY way, they would stay with me ALL THE TIME. i'm always sad driving to school and dropping them off.

and then when i am shopping by myself at the mall and costco, i won't feel so sad...

BUT, on the inside, i AM sad that they have to go to school and not be with me.

ok, have a great thursday and weekend! :)

This is what I will look like later in my life. Scary! Let's give a shout and a holler for useless apps and for housewivees with way too much time on their hands!
