First I saw his huge muscular calves, then cute rear, and then the hat that had a Texas with a green dragon coming out of it on one side and "TEXAS AAA STATE CHAMPS" on the other. I knew they had to be from Southlake, so my friend yelled at them and asked them if they were from Southlake. When they said they were, she asked if they were from Southlake, Texas. Before they could answer, I slapped her on the arm and was like, "There is a huge Texas state shape on their hat, of course their from Southlake, Texas." When we all got off the ride in Tomorrowland, they were waiting for us. I was in the second group of my friends getting off, and by the time I did my friend had a tight hold on him. She was looking for a guy to cheat on her boyfriend with that cheated on her the day we left for the trip. Once we were home, I would drive her to see him. Her parent's insisted on it, since I was her only friend they trusted to go with her. When he served his purpose of making her boyfriend jealous, she broke up with him. When he asked another friend, who was dating his brother, for my number, I about passed out. He admitted to me later, that it was me he was interested in from the start. When I slapped my friend on the arm, and gave my "smart-mouth" comment, he had recognized me. Our schools were in the same district and my cousin went to his school. He remembers seeing me talk to my cousin, thinking I was cute, but was too shy to come up and talk to me.
Awww....That is so sweet!

Maybe for our 25th!
That makes perfect sense! It will be much more convenient to do the Illuminations cruise if you are staying at YC.

I forgot about the whole view issue at the Poly right now...

You will have a magical time!

If cost were no option, I'd pick Poly every time, but POFQ has become our 2nd favorite resort. We stayed Thanksgiving 2011, when it was 100% occupancy, and you never would have known it. We loved the small size, and the fact that the kids could go grab a drink or snack at the food court by themselves, etc. The boat to DTD was great. We went over to POR to use the pool, go fishing, and try out their food court, and my kids loked POFQ better (which suprised me...everyone says older kids like the pool at Riverside better, but not mine) Bus service was great too. The best we've ever had. And this was the busiest time we had ever been....our other trips had been in early Dec. It was suprisingly quiet.

When we did get married, they set besides my parents and their children carried my wedding dress train.

I need some help. Have any of your little ones gone through a hitting phase? My DD in grade one is going through some sort of phase (I hope) where she gets super mad at me. For instance today was a themed dress up day at their school "tacky tourist day" and we were scouring the house trying to find something for all of them to wear. I guess DD6 teacher said to come dressed like they were on vacation so she wanted to wear shorts only, with nothing on her legs. I kept trying to explain to her that it is still winter, snowed last night, and very cold. She could wear the shorts but with tights underneath.

She gets this posture going, grits her teeth, and breathes like a wild animal at me. I know the routine, and just tried to play off by laughing and making jokes, but then she kept kicking at me, until she actually got me in the stomach. Well, needless to say there went my patience and humor.

My losing it is not pretty for anyone to see, and all of the DD's morning was then taken down the wrong road. I am just so sad and frustrated. I try so hard to keep it together, and then end up losing it and wrecking everything.

I am so afraid that these girls will grow up to hate me. My worst fear ever. I know my DD8 went through a similar phase when she was in grade 1, but I miss my sweetheart DD6 sometimes, and wonder if she will come back.

Sorry all, I had to come here as I don't want to share with anyone else. I am to upset.

Sitting here crying looking at her frickin doll, how pathetic is that

Thanks

Jen
hang in there. Mine never really hit, but would throw temper tantrums and throw stuff. It is a control thing.

Hopefully he will come back and say what it was, so you (and others) can make an informed decision.



HAPPY FRIDAY, EVERYONE!!!!

Hopefully just an isolated thing.... We will room our DD6 together in te compound. They will team up and really make us These girls....

My DH is freaking out that we ALL will be on the same cycle, and he said he will take the boys and go away

DH ad I shared a double at Pop, it was tight...mind you though we have a King at home. We did the Queen bed much more comfortably

I gotmy Mickey mail yesterday...with the CORRECT INFO

I hear ya there! We don't rent a car, so am looking at the best option for food, since we will have a kitchen. May just run over to the Hess, since I don't plan on doing any real cooking. I looked at Garden Grocer, but we really don't need $40 worth of stuff for 4 nights. (unless we get a lot of alcohol....hmmm

DS has always wanted to stay at Boardwalk because of the pool (don't know why he doesn't want SAB at BC/YC, but he hasn't seen it in person.)


Speaking of Boardwalk....Our DVC contract is supposed to close today....Crossing my fingers. I haven't heard anything since Feb 25, when they told me all was well, and it was set to go.

Jen, just wanted to chime in...please know we have all ridden the guilty train with you... just as we all know that it does help us one bit to stay there....it happens to us all...one night recently there was a low point for me, but my Sam pulled me back up... guess we've done something right.

there is some saying...in a car there is a rear view mirror to glance backwards, but one can't dwell there long....you need to look forward to see where you are headed. Life is like that....don't get mired down in past mistakes, regrets whatever...take what worked and didn't and learn from that to help guide and shape the present and tomorrow..Often, people will continue to do the same thing over and over again and expect different results. It doesn't work.

Our children can also learn from our mistakes; we are human too. You are surely a great mom, and your kids and DH love you.

We can all be therapy to one another...

Now back to regular programming... Need to get caught up again!

That is beautiful and true. I need to try to remember that. I am also guilty of worrying too much about the what-if's of the future. I really need to learn to take things day by day.

TGIF...

Piglets Mommy, will be waiting to share in your excitement of getting that "second home"... and thanks for your other comments...we can remind each other.

Wookie, BBT rocks! so cool your JM reminds you of Sheldon, my Sam thinks he is the best.

Iheart: whatever you end of doing for your special vow renewal will be wonderful... btw.. I've got a sentimental DH too..

Koh, we DVR Idol and am definitely behind on the shows...btw we love nicki minaj ... her sayings and nicknames crack us up....Keith urban is pretty nice to look at...

Linda, so happy to hear of your fun time (love the pix Christine posted) Sorry to hear of your DD's broken finger and hopes it mends quickly with no surgery needed. The Redneck themed meet and greet sounded like a hoot.. right up my alley ....the whole group sounds like so much fun! BTW... Love your new siggie!!

Is Sam still feeling okay? You guys get any classes in this week? After my horrendous session yesterday (feeling kinda ick and dizzy, etc.) I'm going to cancel my torture session for tomorrow.

"mom you arent exactly the type of women Im trying to appeal to" ... children and their brutal honesty.

Pas & Janet: I'm with you two on the texting. Texting is a much-welcome source of communication for this shy gal. Now, if I could just remember to check it when I hear the notification (Perry's growl, by the way)!
Miss, mabye after this CR will become her first choice...you never know.. Sam took a few days off but went to Pilates Wed night (we replaced the Yoga with another pilates class) ..last night she had gymnastics. Tonight open gymnastics at 7... she's baaaack!!

Hope you are not coming down with something... yes you should cancel and rest up...my DS can be very funny...i know he also grew the beard to look older..

Sarah is everpresent in my trip planning, and I will think of her constantly at the Grand. It will be hard not to want to text her pics and thoughts. I do believe she had a hand in my pixie dust

Funny about text vs. calling...Janet can attest..as soon as I pick up the phone...kids gone wild here Perry's growl..love it. I had it's a small world as a ringtone on my old cell
Pas, seems likes the kids are all getting on board... DH doesn't stand a chance... and then bring up Sarah... done....

Kids do have radar when the attention is not focused on them... love the IASM ring tone... me, I'm going to the dark side... Miss suggested Harry Potter...maybe Bellatrix' laugh??

Hello my lovely friends.

Jen: Any mom who tells you she hasn't totally lost it at some point over her kids doing something crazy is either a saint, has a full-time nanny or is a bald-faced liar. You've gotten some excellent advice so I'm just gonna say, I've been in that same boat plenty of times.

Melissa: Sorry about the phone call... and hope it's not strep. I seriously with the menopause and puberty thing. It's reminiscent of what my hubs said when he came home last Friday when Miss M had the day off, "I come home early when you two are stuck at home together because I'm worried you'll wind up killing each other." Ye of little faith! (We just completely wrecked the house instead.)

Pas: Best. Mail. Ever... I'm so impressed they managed to get it right, too!

Piglet: Sweet on the DVC closing!

Janet: Excellent! How long has she been doing gymnastics? Was thinking about what to enroll Miss M in over the summer break. Yeah, I took today off... and I feel bad for calling out! At least Ron's pretty forgiving. (And now I'm chanting Potter, Potter, POTTER! )

Ginny: Love the knock, knock jokes with your GS... he obviously rates them quite highly to be sharing them back!

Linda: Adorable new sig! (Had to go look on my phone just to see it. )

to Wookie, I_Heart and Koh and anyone else I've missed.

Carline update


Koh1977 - DH and I definitely notice the difference from double to queen (but like pas we have a king at home) even my 7 & 9 year old don't like sharing a double as they both have their own double at home. Now I don't know that I would let it dictate resort, but for us it is a big consideration.

PigletsMommy - we love POFQ for the size as well! It is def our fav mod (nit having stayed in a royal room at Riverside yet). Keeping my fingers crossed for your DVC contract!

Jeanette - LMAO about the same cycle.....that would be HELL but you know it is probably going to happen YAY for Mickey Mail!!!

Janet - your words are ones to live by! HUGS my friend! Yeah I am aggravated with this autism resource teacher, he is from the county and just isn't reliable. Even the asst principal couldn't believe he didn't show. He just comes for meetings to help the staff strategize but he honestly hasn't had any good suggestions this year YAY on Sam feeling better and being back!!!!

Linda - have fun at Cosco

Miss - LOL! Yeah DH knows when I have been home with DD for too long that there is going to be trouble! That is too funny that yours has to come home to check on the two of you! Hope your feeling better soon! Was it just too much of a work out???

She is testing you Jen.

My DS4 now is starting to hit and curse usually because he's tired or hungry. He is tough, but same thing, time out..he starts smacking me. I hold him until he regains control...but I have some less than stellar meltdowns myself We try our best, but we are human Jen

I think you're awesome, and so do you girls...it'll be a fresh start this afternoon
I agree, Jen is awesome and she is testing her.

Hopefully the 24 hour test will come back negative as well. I can't believe they just didn't show up. I would be furious as well. I know they have a lot on their plate, but so do you. If you can manage to be there, when it was agreed to be there, so should they.

Thank you. The boys just have a cough left. I take Joey to the doctor later to talk to him about his blood sugar.
I did, but I had to eat some before class and some after because I WAY over ordered. I got a Thai Chopped Chicken Salad (All-natural, antibiotic-free chicken, romaine, Thai cashews, fire-roasted edamame, red peppers, carrots, fresh cilantro & wonton strips all tossed in low-fat Thai Chili Vinaigrette and drizzled with peanut sauce) and a Big Kid Grilled Cheese (Gruyere, Vermont White Cheddar, organic sliced American cheese and Applewood- Smoked Bacon grilled on our new All-Natural White Miche), which are my favorites.

Ah, but the thing is, I came up with that laying in my bed, having not been kicked in the stomach. Trust me, I have lost it on JM before, and I felt guilty about it. I mean lost it to the point where I made him cry, and he's still a great big Mama's Boy.

Her saying she was sorry shows what a great mom you are. It means she was able to think about the situation and on her own realize she was wrong and she needed to apologize. Instead of it making you feel worse, it should make you feel better in that you have done such a great job as a mom she is able to understand something like that at her young age.
Yes, they do need us to set a good example, but you are human. It is human to make mistakes. Obviously you are setting a good example because she has already learned how to tell on her own when she has made one, and needs to apologize for it.
Maybe when she gets like that, you can both try and walk away from each other and count until your calm enough to come back together. Honestly, I still have to do this with JM from time to time.

Another reason I'm just partial to that character is the actor, Jim Parsons, is a fellow Texan. Plus, he's so stinkin' adorable!! He makes me want to take care of him.

I have several ringtones in use right now. My general one is the Downton Abbey theme. The one for my sister is the Cantina song from Star Wars. My mom's is Darth Vader's Imperial March. For all my mil's and fil's numbers I am using the theme from Jaws. David's (my DH) is the theme from Close Encounters of the Third Kind, which is much nicer than his usual. For him I usually have the theme from either Halloween or The Exorcist. Then I like to have special ringtones for my general one for certain holidays. Hopefully, before September, I can get a "Boo to you" ringtone again that I can use in September and October. I had it on another phone and loved it!! Then during Christmas season (starting the Friday after Thanksgiving) I have one I made out of Trans-Siberian Orchestra's Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24.

Thank you. Some days I just look at my DH and say, "We should have just had puppies. They are easier."

I was thinking of adding the water park option, but I don't know that the kids would really enjoy it any more than a resort day with a nice pool, playground, and arcade, etc.
If Poly was as cheap as the mods I'd be !!! I really don't know if we would use the WPs much either. The resort pools are all pretty amazing!

When we did get married, they set besides my parents and their children carried my wedding dress train.
That's so sweet

For instance today was a themed dress up day at their school "tacky tourist day" and we were scouring the house trying to find something for all of them to wear. I guess DD6 teacher said to come dressed like they were on vacation so she wanted to wear shorts only, with nothing on her legs. I kept trying to explain to her that it is still winter, snowed last night, and very cold. She could wear the shorts but with tights underneath.

She gets this posture going, grits her teeth, and breathes like a wild animal at me. I know the routine, and just tried to play off by laughing and making jokes, but then she kept kicking at me, until she actually got me in the stomach. Well, needless to say there went my patience and humor.

My losing it is not pretty for anyone to see, and all of the DD's morning was then taken down the wrong road. I am just so sad and frustrated. I try so hard to keep it together, and then end up losing it and wrecking everything.

I am so afraid that these girls will grow up to hate me. My worst fear ever. I know my DD8 went through a similar phase when she was in grade 1, but I miss my sweetheart DD6 sometimes, and wonder if she will come back.

Sorry all, I had to come here as I don't want to share with anyone else. I am to upset.

Sitting here crying looking at her frickin doll, how pathetic is that

Thanks

Jen
Oh Jen Seriously, we have all been there. I think there is something about 1st grade that brings out the You are a terrific mom and those girls are lucky to have you. Don't you forget it!

My DS7 (I keep forgetting he had a birthday last week. Bad mommy moment! ) is not a hitter, but he does love to knock things over or throw things

One day last week we got into it when he was getting ready to get on the bus and he told me that he was going to tell his teacher that I don't love him so that he could get a new mom. Poor little guy came off the bus that day with tears streaming down his face and ran into my arms apologizing.

I don't know how they have the power to make us so crazy yet still love them with every ounce of our beings. Kids are strange creatures.

i_heart - I'll PM you the blog address, but I'll warn you I haven't updated it recently (too much other things going on). The vow renewal sounds amazing! I am sure this trip is very much needed right now
Ugh. I'm sorry about the teacher and that Steven isn't feeling well. Is it time for vodka yet? Ok, maybe just a bit too soon.

Don't worry about updating the blog, I just want to make sure I bookmark it properly this time. Thanks

I'm sorry, but I feel like he is just drumming up drama. It wouldn't be the first time. I'm sure there was a problem, but problems can and do happen everywhere.

Copying and saving this. Janet you are such a good thread therapist!

Ditto this!

Happy Friday everyone! DS8 has a birthday party to go to at Chuck E Cheese tonight. I hate that place with a passion. I know he is going to end up sick tomorrow. He is super shy and has problems with making friends and so he is desperate to go or I would have said H to the No.

Hi Rcers. FTW Cabins is our early-line plan for our anniversary 2014 trip. This annual trip has become our "try new things" time. We are starting to run out of new Resorts to try, and the Cabins look like a fun & different experience. Out of curiosity I was looking forward to KOOK's review of FTW Cabins for helpful hints before we actually took the plunge. So... if KOOK is listening in, I hope she resumes her same line of ressie-ing after the furlough ... but I predict different plans shall materialize for the KOOKsters next WDW adventure.

_________________________

disneydreamin247: A quick three night trip sounds like just the ticket. Happy belated birthday to Lily, too.

LuvLuvLuv: one too many slushies, eh? Saw the topiaries last weekend. Loved the Monsters, Inc. ones.

pas130: I had no doubt on the GF for you. Hooray for you. And yep, 1K will buy lotsa snacks.

sjs314: Funny stuff. I agree, "Deena had one too many slushies if she thinks Spring is here," and I am a Floridian. I had gloves on last night in my house!

gwynne: So happy for your WL/YC plan. Two of may faves.

Grumpy Grandma: So glad you enjoyed your Divas trip. I'd never know you were shy from our visit. Wasn't that you dancing on the table at the River Roost Lounge with Piano Bob? P.S. -- Cute new siggy.

Janet B: Beautiful sentiment... Sarah had a hand in this one ...

DetTigsGal: I did the Dooney & Bourke subdued brown embossed leather splurge last summer and I still can't rationalize it. In my defense I had help: my DN did drag me to DtD to the TrenD store and showed it to me, and then she egged me on until I was standing in the check-out line with my wallet in hand. Next thing I know, three days later DN and her DH magically transported me to the YC gift shop to buy the matching wristlet. You see... she had scoped all this out ahead of time before I even arrived at WDW and then blindsided me with the proclamation, "THE BROWN LEATHER ONE IS SO YOU! DON"T YOU THINK??" How could I possibly disagree with her...

letthewookiewin: What a great MK meet story with your DH. Big Kid Grilled Cheese rocks.

babyberger: Vodka tonic & lime is my SIL fave and one of mine, too.

Piglets Mommy: So exciting your DVC contract is supposed to close today....

Hi Miss and Chimo2u and mousemommy and KOOK and the rest of RCers. Christine are you nearby?
