Music Monday: Anything Like Me- Brad Paisley

One of the best little boy songs I've heard! And it comes from my favorite singer who we are seeing in concert for the 4th year in a row on Saturday night!!


I remember saying I don't care either way
Just as long as he or she is healthy I'm ok
Then the doctor pointed to the corner of the screen
And said "You see that thing right there well you know what that means"

And I started wondering who he was going to be
And I thought heaven help us if he's anything like me
He'll probably climb a tree too tall and ride his bike to fast
End up every summer wearing something in a cast

He's gonna throw a ball and break some glass in a window down the street
He's gonna get in trouble oh he's gonna get in fights
I'm gonna lose my temper and some sleep
It's safe to say that I'm gonna get my payback if he's anything like me

I can see him right now knees all skinned up
With a magnifying glass trying to melt a Tonka truck
Won't he be a sight with his football helmet on
That'll be his first love til his first love comes along
He'll get his heart broke by the time he's in his teens
And heaven help him if he's anything like me

He'll probably stay out too late and drive his car too fast
Get a speeding ticket he'll pay for mowing grass
He's gonna get caught skipping class and be grounded for a week
He's gonna get in trouble we're gonna get in fights
I'm gonna lose my temper and some sleep

It's safe to say that I'm gonna get my payback if he's anything like me

He's gonna love me and hate me along the way
Years are gonna fly by I already dread the day
He's gonna hug his momma, he's gonna shake my hand
He's gonna act like he cant wait to leave

But as he drives out he'll cry his eyes out
If he's anything like me there's worse folks to be like
Aw he'll be alright if he's anything like me Read more!

Leavin on a jetplane...

So HL has now been on his very first airplane ride!!! We headed out to the desert to visit family and have some fun in the sun. I was very anxious for his first plane ride although it was only a 2 hour trip, I was just praying that he behaved himself.

It turned out that the flight was undersold and so he actually ended up with his very own seat in business class, spoiled kid! But seriously we lucked out with the extra room for him to wiggle around. How could we get so lucky! He immediately grabbed the seatbelt and began inspecting and banging it... that's what he does with everything that amuses him. And he giggled and laughed and banged on the window, and got a good kick out of the overhead vents.

And then the flight took off... so far so good... awesome

Well apparently the altitude flipped a switch in his head that turned my child into a straight up Tazmanian Devil. I have never seen him behave this way, he was up down, flip around, pull on the sunshade, smack the seatbelt, bang the tray, squee like a random crazy person the entire trip. I kid you not, he was literally going a million miles an hour the entire flight. I was so exhausted by the time we got there just trying to keep up with him and make sure that he wasn't annoying the other passengers.

I cringed when I looked at my hubbs and said "Oh my god, we're one of THOSE people now!!" But surprisingly every passenger commented on how GOOD he was during the flight ::::insert blank stare:::: GOOD??? He would squeel in random outbursts of happiness so loud I'm sure that ATC could hear him over the Captain's headphones, and this was GOOD??? Wow. I guess there is a difference between a HAPPY squeeling baby and a fussy squeeling baby.

So despite his greatest efforts HL razzled and dazzled the poor United passengers that had no idea what they had walked into. He even got his own set of wings from the Captain for his very first flight. And momma needed a Valium upon de-boarding. Read more!

Holy Crap, we've got a crawler!!!

It only took him 10 1/2 mos to figure this thing out... and of course he decided to figure it out while we were on vacation! I KNEW he was going to do that and we were *thisclose to leaving the pack n play at home and just letting him sleep and nap on the floor but something made me think "he'll probably start crawling and THEN what??" so we brought it, good thing! For crawling HL must be enticed with something good or else he cries (beer is a fave... bad daddy!) because he loathes tummy time and anything to do with being on his tummy. Not sure what they call this kind of crawling, it's HL style, he does headstands, and the inchworm thing, and scoots and pulls, and sometimes even tries to stand to maneuver himself, hys-ter-i-cal!

And of course we have to include my daily dose of energy drinks in this film, as I said it's the only way I manage to stay alive right now!

Fall is in the air, which means it's almost Halloween!!

Well the leaves are changing here in the CO and the air is getting crisper which means one thing, fall is coming! And let me tell you I love FALL, it is my favorite season of the year. I absolutely love it, I start getting all of the decorations out, I buy 85 million pumpkins much to my hubby's displeasure and stack them all over the porch. I make pumpkin stew and pumpkin soup and put gourds and dried corn all over the house. And with the arrival of fall that means a party to plan and I am a sucker for party planning!

This was me on Halloween last year, 5 days before the dude arrived! Even at 9 months pregnant I was rockin a Halloween costume. Seriously I love All Hallow's Eve.... we go all out... so don't be surprised if I start posting like a crazy person about pumpkins, goblins, and costumes :)

And now I have a wee one to adorn with some fantastic costume.... so I can't help myself but search for the most perfect and amazing costume to ever grace the face of the earth for my little man. Here's some adorable ones I've found so far.

But here's my problem, we like to do theme costumes where we all match... so I need help finding something that can be a family costume. Any ideas for us??

I've done lost my mind

Seriously someone smack me. What am I thinking... Here's a little synopsis of what we've been up to... or are just about to get ourselves into...

  • We're buying a new car which means selling the one I have now in a crappy market
  • We're getting ready to sell our house which means a million loose ends to tie up, household projects, oh and packing... HA packing...
  • We're looking for a new residence, found one that I am in complete love with... did I mention it's a short sale which means all of the above needs to go much quicker in order for us to get the new one
  • Going on vacation and HL's first time on an airplane
  • Finishing business taxes that are long overdue, you don't even want to know what a gorilla this is going to be
  • I'm exhibiting with Bella at a major festival here which means gearing up product, sewing until my eyeballs fall out, and daily stress with my manufacturers and shipping companies like FedEx (don't even get me started)
  • HL's first birthday party planning... it's coming WAAY too fast...
  • Helping my Dad start a new business, gearing it up for the same festival, teaching someone in 6 weeks everything I've learned about business over many years, building his website... you get the idea
  • We joined a gym to start working out together so we can meet our weight loss goals... they have daycare... it has been 1 week and we haven't found a single moment to go ONCE, gee I wonder why??
  • Oh yes and did I mention I am going back to medical school?? Must've slipped my mind with the 5 bagillion other things I have going on.
  • And we thought about having another baby soon ::::insert ridiculous laugh here:::: My luck we'll end up with a surprise triplet pregnancy because God is JUST that funny

All of that on top of my normal routine of running both our businesses and taking care of a munchkin all day. Yep that explains why I am so flippin EXHAUSTED these days and literally, I kid you not, living on energy drinks from the moment I wake up until I collapse. And thank you all very much for letting me vent! Who am I kidding, this was basically like me making a to do list to keep myself organized, now I can see it all on paper and stop forgetting what I'm doing like an Alzheimer's patient. Read more!
