Lmg was star of the week at preschool . We had to create a fun little poster, fill out a questionaire and write a little story about my preschool star.

Here is a look at his poster

Happy Fourth Birthday Baby Bear

What I use to call LMG when he was a baby ... Baby Bear. In fact everyone started calling him that. Some how some way over the last four years he grew out of that. Makes me tear up a little thinking about it. SHH! Don't tell anyone but when I go in to check on him in the middle of the night and make sure he's snug as a rug... I whisper in his ear " I love you baby bear"

Easel art

More easel art

Copper cars stebcil painting I really like this one and added it to the art gallery on lmg's wall. The rest of the art I am storing. Sometimes I use it for wrapping paper since I have two drawers full of easel painting it's a good way to upcycle them after snapping pics for the blog.

A Little Twitter

The Littles are tweeting, well sorta. I have been cracking up and the stuff the littles have been saying lately. If you read the Dear David for April 2010 you probably laughed too at the Jesus Christ story. I was thinking I need to some how some way capture these moments and maybe one day gather them all up and create a little book I can  look back at when I am a little old lady. The simplest thing I could think of was Twitter. I have an easy little app on my iphone that I can capture the moments of little brilliance.

Want to follow the littles? You can find them here Littles_Said It

Dear Gabriel April 2010

Dear Gabriel, 

Tonight we were hanging out on the couch and I gave you a hug and a kiss and you look up at me and said "mommy your my favorite hot stuff" WOWZA what a Casanova in training. I am sure if your daddy had heard you say that he would have beamed with pride that you were picking up some as he likes to call  them  "player moves"  I thought it was silly and we both giggled while I tickled your tummy.

 Your saying the funniest things these days I want to capture them somehow and record the things you and your brother say.

Here is an sampling of your greatest almost 4 year old moments this month

Mommy do you know what a crocidilean is , it means I am a crocodile

No I don't want a baby, I have a brother
I like chicken nuggets they are small  chickens

I'm Peter Parker you are my princess MJ 

Lets go  fast and run over the motorcycles

You crack me up as I am typing this. Silly little. April was a busy month for us we had many adventures including four trips to the zoo a trip to the california hall of science to check out an albino alligator and lots of running around doing errands and taking care of everyday stuff. I love taking you on adventures , you always keep me company chit chatting about this and that asking why that neighbor man is watering his plants today and why the plants need water.  Not only have you been very curious but you  have been starving. I feel like I can not keep you feed enough. A couple of fridays ago I kept a closer eye on exactly how much I fed you that day . 

mc donalds nuggets french fries and half a cheese burger
a mango smoothie
pretzel sticks with peanut butter
two bowls of spaghetti
one scoop of ice cream

oh my! I wish I could bottle up the energy you have that burns those calories I would be a millionaire!

As I was tucking you in last night you became very quiet and told me very softly that you wished I did not have to go to work because you miss me when I am gone. It brought a little tear to my eye. I miss you too and wish I  could spend every  waking moment you have with you watching you learn new things, listening to you giggle and play.

Let's see what May has to bring us its your fourth birthday this month. There will be lots to write about.


Dear David April 2010

Dear David,

You are still potty training. It is not going as smoothly as I had hoped it would. You have accidents  which is normal but now you have started hiding out to go number two. The goal is to really get you to tell us on time  I have to go caca... the other day you came to inform me you had caca and you were holding it in your hand after you plucked it out of your underwear. I was not a happy mommy. You, however had a huge smile on your face. I could not decide if you were happy that you were on your way to put it in the toilet or if you wanted  some props for making a caca.

SIGH! I just keep reminding myself you will get there... you will get there. 

Besides the "excitement" of potty training  you and I have been up to lots this last month. We both look forward to our date Friday where we go on "adventures" as you like to call them. Basically we run errands and you get a chocolate milk and vanilla scone from Starbucks and talk to the people in the drive thru line.Every Thursday night when I am tucking you into bed I tell you about all the fun we are going to have on our morning adventure. You get very excited and say " I want to go to Target , I want chocolate milk " I think its  funny that you have our little schedule down however Daddy and Papa  think I need more variety in my life... I kind of agree so we go to the Hayward Target now instead of Bayfair. 

Your still digging reptiles. Your new favorite one is the Jesus Christ lizard whom you both discovered watching that Life program about animals in their natural habitats. You walk around the house with a plastic green lizard and say things like "look at Jesus Christ", "where's Jesus Christ" , "Can I take Jesus Christ?" and sometimes you throw it at Gabriel and say" HAHA Jesus Christ got you". At first I was really confused why you kept calling this lizard Jesus Christ and then I put it all together and thought oh my lord  these littles and the reptiles. 

Last week we had to attend funeral services for you great grandfather. Daddy explained to you that we were going to Jesus' house and that we had to be very good.  While at the services you kept talking to Gabriel and you guys were looking around. I was watching you closely  but  could not figure out what was on your mind.  You finally looked at me and said "Where is Jesus Christ?" I whispered "We are at his house shh lets be quiet", you replied "I don't see a lizard".

So shameful that we are Catholic and you think going to Jesus' house is visiting with a lizard.  But these are the things you remember when you have children and in case one day I don't remember this story I had to write it so I can never forget.
