I don't post enough blog updates!!! I try! I think about doing it! I have so much to talk about in my head but then I just don't say it on here. I'm to busy to type it on here.

I'm more of a facebook kind of woman. It's so easy on facebook. I post like two updates a day on there. It's like: Heather is going to see Pirates 4....or Heather is going to la ha....or Heather thinks steaks are delicious or whatever.
It's so fast. I love it. But I like my blog because it lasts so much longer.

Here is what we have been up to.

We have spent the last 17 days in Florida. Heath surprised me with a trip here for vacation.

LillyAnne is 2 months old now and she can smile and laugh and squeal. She cries a lot too.

Ummm....that's all I can think of now.

bratty books

We all love books and we go to the library pretty often. I was thinking lately about how in so many of the children's books the children are bratty and obnoxious. It's annoying to me for some reason. I don't even like READING about obnoxious children.

We have a game we play when we read them. I read, and when the child becomes all rude and stuff I start just making up the text. Usually the parent grabs some sort of whipping utensil and starts using it on the child, and then the child changes into an obedient loving child with some respect for his/her elders and a decent attitude.

My children love it and think this is a hysterical game.

But then they always want me to read the book right, so I do.


Who writes this stuff anyway?

I think my game works though. Working means my children realize that they are not to act like that and also that this monsterous behaviour is completely rude. They always wind up talking about how that kid was a brat and really did need a spanking. But usually in the book the parents somehow do whatever it takes to make the kid happy.

Oh well, at least it's realistic. ;)
