Dare Cares... UG!

Well, the time is coming, where I will have to put Gabby in day care so that I can go back to work. I went to two different Christian Day Cares yesterday to check them out. One of them is run by the same church as the school I work at (I don't get a discount!) The other is run by one of the parents of one of the students at the school. I think that I like the one run by the parent of a student better... Here are the pros and cons:

ABC Word Academy
*$115 per week
*One teacher in the room
*Right around the corner
*I know the staff
*Open from 6:30am-6:30pm
*Lots of colors on walls
*Other babies are at least 2 months older than Gabby

In the Beginning
*$95 per week
*two or more teachers at all times
*8 blocks away
*I know the staff
*Open from 6am-6:30pm
*Walls around crib have pics of baby's family
*There are at least two babies Gabby's age

There are many more, but these are things that stick out... It is a tough call... I don't want to have to put her in Day Care... but, you gotta do what you gotta do...

My baby wet my pants!

Well, we got back from San Antonio last night... We had a nice visit with my grand parents, great grand mother, aunts, uncles, cousins, blah blah blah... Well, while we were there, I was sitting in the living room, talking to my aunt... All of a sudden, I felt something very warm in my lap. It was the laughing stalk of the house for a good 30 minutes! It looked like I had done it myself.. LOL

This hits at home!

Well... I was informed of this today... it happend last night. One of the boys that was in my youth groups a couple years ago was in a car wreck last night. He was driving near his house, and another car avoided a stop sign and pulled out in frount of him. He T-boned the car, and the mother and 15 month old in that car were killed.

Well, today my mother in law, Gabby and I went to the final visitation of my brother in law's mother in law. Todd (my brother in law) is married to a Vietmise woman. Her parents are Buddhist. So, the ceremony was a traditional Buddhist deal. We each lit 2 incense and bowed 3 times to the picture of Buddha, and then placed one of the incense in a pot in front of the picture, then we moved on to the picture of the woman who had died, bowed 3 times and then placed the incense in the pot in front of her picture. It was different, but I thought it was a neat concept. They first show their loyalty to Buddha, and then to the passed relative.... Kind of neat, but I still love God, and my faith is still where it has been.... I just thought that I would share my experience with you.

What's new...

Well, it is summer... I guess it has been for a few weeks now. I am so bored not working! Last summer, I worked two jobs to keep myself busy. This summer, I am staying home with the kids. I love them, but it gets boring at the house! We go to the pool almost every day, and Gabby has a new boyfriend. His name is Christopher, and he is 7 months old. The two of them flirt like crazy while us moms talk away. Christian has a lot of friends that go to the pool, so he never wants to leave, but I wont keep Gabby there longer than 2 hours. Yesterday while we were in the pool, Gabby fell asleep, and Christopher (her little bf) got really fussy. We all got out and went and sat in the shade. Chris (my hubby) came and took Gabby home and I stayed with Christian. This little boy brought me a pocket knife and said he found it in the water; that really bothers me, but I am glad he gave it to an adult! I think I may take the kids to the children's museum one of these days... Houston has an awesome children's museum, and I want to take Christian before we move to Canada.

Gabby has been rolling over a lot! It is easy for her to go from tummy to back... When she tries to roll from her back to her tummy, she almost always gets stuck on her arm... It is so cute, but she get s so aggravated! She will be 4 months old on the 16th! She is growing up so fast! she is doing really well on sitting up too! This child wants to do everything! She is such an over achiever!

My dad is moving up north in September, and my mom will follow soon after. Chris and Christian are hoping to go when my dad goes, but we have to have all the paperwork done first! We are all planning to be up there by next summer, but I want to have a job lined up first!

Well, I think that is it for now. We will update again when there is more to update on :)
