i can't keep up!

ugh, i've just had one of those weeks where i cannot keep up with everything. we've been so busy this last week and we're only going to be even MORE busy this week so blogging has been shoved to the back burner which really kinda stinks because blogging help keeps me sane! blogging is my unwinding at the end of the day, it's how i vent and how i reminisce all at the same time and oh how i've missed it! the month of may could not be more cram packed full of activities for our family. between birthdays (papas, auntie s, mine & pooks'), mother's day, B's drill, uncle matts graduation and wedding--then you add in playdates, doctor appointments and all the errand running to for the previously mentioned activities--in a word: WHEW!

let's see, if you don't count the not me! posts and the wordless post....where did we leave off? mother's day? i never shared any pictures did i...well here is a picture of my beautiful flowers:
gorgeous and my whole house smells wonderful!

and rather than post every story and/or mishap that occurred this week i'm going to make a little installment that shall called THINGS THAT I LEARNED THIS WEEK:

-my kids have been rewired to wake at 6:30am regardless of what time they go to bed. all three kids.

- apparently peanut will not drink from a bottle. the few wonderful, glorious and well appreciated "dates" that i've had away from my kids necessary times that i've needed to be away from peanut i have always pumped milk and he had no problem accepting his meals from a plastic knockoff. well not anymore as i learned friday night. it was my ''girls'' night with nanaw; we were getting pedicures then going shoe shopping and finally enjoying a peaceful dinner. the pedicures were first and they were amazing! while waiting for nanaw to finish up, i decided to phone home and see how bedtime was going without me. ''well everything is okay i guess. peanut didn't really eat. i gave him like 6 ounces but he wouldn't really take it....i don't think he even ate an ounce. he's not very happy but maybe he's just tired." right, that's it. or he could be starving! so i did the motherly thing and had nanaw drive clear across town so that i could nurse him. he ate. and ate. and switched sides. and ate some more. i cannot remember the last time that a feeding lasted that long. but he nursed and was happy as a clam afterwards.

-pooks can say starbucks, help me, peanut's name, flip-flop, no way, and a ton of other random words and phrases that suddenly are exploding out of his mouth.

-bubba and pooks are fans of the black eyed peas. (the group not the food!) a few days a week, after the boys' nap we occasionally watch Ellen. the black eyed peas were on this week (no clue what day) and they preformed their new song "boom boom pow". it was mildly entertaining; it's a song that definitely will get stuck in your head. not just your head either, but the little noggins of two and three year olds as well. so much so that once they are buckled in their carseats they request ''da boom boom song''. okay so i switch to "the hits" station and lucky me, it was on.

well with the main lyric being ''gotta get dat boom boom boom...gotta get dat boom boom boom" it's an easy song for toddlers to sing. so much so that i hear it all.the.time. bubba can't recite his alphabet yet but he can sing ''i like 'dat boom boom pow....gotta get dat boom boom pow''. i know what you're thinking: Wow Shannon! What amazing and responsible parently skills you have! (eh, i can pretend). heck i'll even do one better and try to get a short video clip of them singing.

-the TV gods are out to get me. the 4 shows that i regularly DVR and wait to watch until the boys are asleep and B is at poker (you know, so i can actually hear and see the show) all had/are having their season finales this week. house, grey's, survivor and desperate housewives are all ending for the summer. what the heck am i suppose to do now...laundry? dishes? riiight, like that will happen! ha!

well it's getting late so i'm gonna wrap this up...this week we have uncle matts/rachels/michelles graduation, mine and pooks birthday and then the wedding festivities so we will be busy! i'll try to take lots of pics though! here are some to hold you over though ;)
