My little brat

We all know that everybody has good days and bad. Well, today was a bad day...not for me but for my son.

He woke up before us and when i woke up i noticed he wasn't in our room and the house was quiet. (if i had music on this post this is where you would hear the dun dun dun) When I found him he was in his chair just waiting for someone to turn on his cartoons. How perfect is that?! I thought it was going to be a perfect day.

But as the morning went one he did a whole 180 degree flip with his attitude. First he threw a fit in my face and was hitting me not only with his hands but with a spoon! He smacked me in the lip good, there went time out number one. He still hadn't lost his trip to the local carnival. But it continued.

He kept doing things he wasn't supposed to pushing my buttons. And when he was confronted about these acts we would get a fit that involed hitting, falling on the floor and kicking. It would get him into time out once again. By then i had decided that we were not going to the carnival he had lost that trip. I told him hat if he makes a turn around we'll got play with Shanaras girls after lunch. He started off great, after i told him that.

Then daddy woke up. I told him how Brock was acting and we were no longer going to the carnival because of that. I got a awww come on, he isn't being that bad. He didn't mean to hit you with the spoon. Soon he saw how his son was acting up. Now he was pushing his luck with daddy. I ended up getting kicked! So I texted Shanara and told her that Brock is not going anywhere today.

Before Billy left for work, i got a text from Stacey inviting us over for dinner and Brock can play with Ben. I informed Brock if hes good after nap we'll go play with Ben. The whole time i was hoping he would because i didn't want to cook. About an hour after that only one time out, Brock let me lay him down for a nap. He not only fell asleep on his own but early at that. A complete turn around. He slept for 2hrs and we left a half hour after he woke up. Things seemed to be going good.

It wasn't too long before Brock started getting moody at Staceys house. There was a toy Ben was playing with. Now Ben is only 8months old so he isn't walking yet but hes crawling. Brock walked up to the toy and pushed it far away from Ben, sat on it and started to play. Ben fallowed and started to play with it. As soon as Ben let go of the toy Brock pushed it away.

So Stacey finally got out another toy similar to the one Brock was taking. it didn't take long before Brock was trying to take that away from Ben. Then Brock was trying to push Ben out of the way. What a spoiled brat!!! Brock got yelled at about it and came crying to me. I told him what he was doing wrong and told him to stop it. He calmed down and went to play. Ben was on the floor when Brock (standing over him) picked up a toy truck, and held it out over Bens head. I yelled, "BROCK! i don't think your about to do what i think you are!!!" He instantly pulled the toy to his chest and "pretended" to play with it i guess. I say i guess, because a second later Brock dropped it on Bens head as soon as i turned my back to him. Ya he did time out for that. And I got him in his pjs and we left. I figured it was time for bed and Ben was tired too. But i couldn't believe the way Brock was acting!

I know my son is selfish because hes a only child and doesn't play with other kids his age much. But the way he acted at Staceys towards Ben was embarassing, usally people tell me how great of a baby he is and how lucky we are. We usally tell them he doesn't show his true colors when we're out but i guess now he is. So keep your babies away Brock will show them how not to act plus i don't think they're heads are safe around my son.

Another one?

So you grow up and you get married and you have babies. That is the norm.

Well, we knocked out baby one and got that out of the way. Really, he wasn't planed. It was planed we would wait two years after being married. We were married in May and Brock was born two weeks Dec. I keeping hoping he never puts the math together. Anyways we decided if Brock we're to have a sibling they would be 3yrs, 4 the latest apart. Well if we decide to have another one we should start trying after we move in 8months.

But we're both not sure if were ready for another one. I keep thinking that if we didn't have Brock our two year is coming up would we have really stuck to the plan? I honestly don't think so. To be honest i hate kids. There are very few kids i like and even less i love. So if our greatest mistake never happened then we probably would never have had kids. So i start thinking that we shouldn't have another one.

Then there comes along the fact that i am the only hope for my parents having grandkids. They got Brock and love him, but they both wouldn't mind another one. They both have other kids but don't count on them to have kids. I think one is gay and the other is just getting to old. (I'm glad they don't read this) Don't get me wrong i love them both. So now i feel under pressure, plus with time not on my side i got that pressure too.

About 3weeks ago, my husband asked me so are we going to have another one. My husband is perfectly content just having one. So i tell him i don't want to if your not 100% on board with me. He said yes he would be if i really want another one. But then i started thinking...i don't even know if I'm 100% on board!

I'm just rambling now. But it turned out that we had a talk last night. We're just going to put it off our mind till after we move and get settled in, And if we do decide to have another one a lot of things have to change. Brock has to sleep in his own bed and fall asleep on his own. He needs to learn how to share, and that mommy cant give him attention all the time. Brock would learn how to pick up after himself. O and the hubby would have to make more money.

Was it hard for you to have another one?

just an update

A few updates.
The day after my last post i got onto the online banking and found out that our check didn't bounce. In fact as i went over our transactions over and over again. I saw that our tax return went through, then right after we have a return check fee...? umm ya i was upset because a few days later there is our rent went through. I still have to talk to the landlords and say it went through it was a mistake on the banks part. I am so done with Navy Fed.


This Sat. was a very busy day. The whole family had to be up and out of the house no later than 7:45. We were out by 7:40. My hubbs went to belk where his car club was meeting up for the parade. And I went to the sitters to drop Brock off for a few mins. Then i ran back by my house to the church there to pick up food from angel food ministries.

It was the first time doing it, so i only got one package of food, because i wanted to make sure the food tasted good. For the record i don't think you could get better tasting food. So we're deff. doing that again next month.

After that i dropped the food off at the house. and went to pick Brock up. Molly and her husband Keith were supposed to fallow me to the parade, but Keith was at Walmart taking to long. i left there at 9:15, probably was cutting it a little close. 9:40 i finally parked. The first thing i did was called Hope. I needed someone to hang with at the parade else i would have been bored out of my mind. So i met up with Hope and some other people.

So it was Brocks first parade and dumby me forgot the camera. Thank goodness Hope was there. She took some really good pictures for us. Thank you again Hope!

After the parade we all went our separate ways. I think i called my hubbs 4times before finally getting a hold of him. Let me tell you he does not listen!!!

We met up, and i think i told him like 50times at least that Brock is a little grouchy because hes hungry. Lets either eat at a restaurant or go to the car find a ATM get cash and get food. We get halfway to the car and he still didn't know what we were doing. He said i caused a seen because i flipped on him in the middle of the street. We ended up going to the car going to the bank, then to sonic then back to the fair. Finally everything was all good.

We stayed at the fair for probably an extra hour before going home. not even 2mins in the car Brock was out cold and then took a two hour nap at home. That boy was tired.

Then about 3, i asked the hubbs what are we doing for dinner. If we're staying in then i got to get the steaks out of the freezer ASAP, or are we going to peppers with his section. I hear the most helpful words..."i dont know." Why cant they ever pick?!!!! i finally pushed him to pick and we ended up going out with his friends. My crazy husband decided to buy the biggest $15 margarita. He was drunk, in fact all the guys were drunk. We then went to his friends house to continue their night. They all got embarrassing drunk and the night ended very late. But i still got to sleep in the next morning.


Sunday came. Our "fasting" day and i woke up with a cold. And i was starving! My hubby said i could eat normal food that day so i did. He gave in mid-day. We need more will power to go a whole day fasting. We had a nice lazy relaxing day.

And its Monday and i'm still sick. Hopefully tomorrow i'll be better.

Heres the pictures Hope took for me:

my day today

So Miss Hope has been bugging me to put up a new post. I don't blame her, i haven't been on here in a long time. And i am very sorry.

Anyways today was a shit day. Sorry for my language but it was. First the sitter and I had a great plan. She would go to her dentist appt at 2. Then text me when she was done, so i could leave for mine. While she head to my house before my hubby left to watch Brock. It seemed like the best plan, except there is no room for erer. Billy had to leave for work before 3. The sitters appt. should have been done by 2:30. And mine was at 3.

I got a text from the sitter at 2:15 saying that she had just finally got in and they are running behind. I just got Brock layed down for his nap. I told her if i don't hear anything by 2:40 I'm leaving...but that would mean i would have to wake up Brock at 35after. Hardly enough time for a nap, i felt bad. I got him up at 2:35 and she texted me saying she was almost done. So i told her we'll just switch cars when i got there.

I got to my appt. on time. That went well. I've been having a lot of problems with my teeth being really sensitive to sweets. So i thought i had cavities. I do, i have three but in between my teeth no where near the pain. It turns out that my teeth are just really sensitive. Nice, i was really hoping for a quick fix...ya that ain't going to happen.

So I went to go pay our rent right afterwards, because i had gotten a letter in the mail stating our check had bounced. It had to have been right before we got our tax return, anyways i hate navy fed. So i went to the office and they didn't even know about it. They wanted me to get a money order because of the situation. That was completely understandable. Except for now on we have to pay each month in money order. Is that really needed? we've lived here over a year and this has never happened, and i went in to work it out before they knew. Ugh i was so pissed. Its just a waste of time and money to get a money order between now and when we move. It just kind of ruined my day.

I'm sorry that my first post in a long time is a not so happy one but what can you say i didn't have such a happy day. I'll try to do better tomorrow. Have a good night ya'll.

Happy Monday

Ugh its monday, and I couldn't feel any worse. Brock decided to wake up at 12 last night and stay up. We had to force him to sleep by just going to bed and traping him in our room. One day I hope to not share my bed with him. Anyways, I wake up about too feeling sick, alcohol is a monster. Just like any other night though I was falling off the bed because the boys take up so much room. Sick to my stomach I asked my hubby to move over so I can lay in the middle. I don't think he understood me because he just went from his side to his back leaving less room. Peeved, because of no room on the bed, my neck hurting and being sick i just took a blanket and slept on the couch. I finally fell asleep about 3. My hubby woke up and saw I was gone and told me I could have the inside or the middle but I passed, until Brock woke up and I had to deal with him. It didn't help he wanted to lay on mommy. So after my horrible night of sleep we finally got up about 10.

We finally got moving around 11, and left to go to the mall area. My hubby wanted to look at some gear for work, so we went to the Army Navy store. I saw the funnest panties there. I sent a pic to Miss Hope and some other people about them. I guess they are a new way to support our troops and sailors. They had every branch of the military and on the butt said anything from "Anchors Aweigh," - "Booty Camp." They cracked me up.

After that we had a nice family late lunch at Steak and Shake. I love that place, and we go whenever we are down by the mall. Usally Brock is awful at resterants, he throws little fits, gets bored, makes mess and usally ends in a melt down. But today my amazing boy made mommy happy. He just stabed his food with his fork and was happy doing that. So we got him some icecream and on the way home he had a melt down. I knew it was coming he was just being to good and sweet. We got home and he took a nap, and now its my turn.

I hope ya'll had a great weekend.
