the joys of living with our children

I need to remind myself that children are a blessing. My children actually made me laugh and cry and yesterday. They were tears of joy!

After Oprahs show yesterday she had a commercial that asked what is your wildest dream. So Nikki and I went to the web page and I told Oprah my wildest dream....well one of them, then Nikki came back and tweaked it for me. She put me tears when she was done. So I told Oprah that my wildest dream would be to have this house paid off so that I can be certain that Ryan will always have a place to live when we die.

My other wildest dream, which I did not mention was to go to Ireland. I am only second generation U.S. citizen. I want to fly to the county of Cork and stand there and know that my grandmother once stood there. Then I want to fly to New York and go to Ellis Island. It was there that my grandparents were rejected. I want to stand on Ellis Island and look in on America and just wonder what it must have felt like to be so close and then be rejected. From New York I want to fly to Sue St.Marie Canada. That is where my grandparents ended up. It was not until many years later that my grandparent came to America. They were never even U.S. citizen.

Amber decided that Ryan needs a new hair style. I am trying to grow Ryans hair out because I think it would cool in a pony tail! Anyway, so after Ryan gets out of the shower Amber snags him up and starts blow drying his hair! Amber turned him to Ringo from the beatles. I must admit that he looked very handsome, but I also had to laugh.

I do believe that if you only have one child that you do not get the full scope of being a parent. Example. I was looking for batteries for my camera, and yet NO ONE knows what happened to them. If you only have one child you know who took them. If you only have one child you know who ate the ice cream for breakfast. If you only have one child you know who put the laundry in the wash and left it there for you to finish! The joys of arguing with my children. OH and yes this stuff did happen this morning.

Rusty is off for an over night trip. So he will be back at some point tomorrow night. So tonight we are going to have hamburgers ( cooked on the foremen) and potatoes. O.K. the children are having that. I will juice of up some vegi's and fruit. The shark and floats were a big hit last night.

I so wish that I had something more exciting to report, but I do not. I am going to take this slow day and enjoy it, because I know that I will have some crazy bays coming up.

I want to know where they got those out fits! I so could see myself wearing one of them.

Great entry!  I agree, it's totally different when there are two kids, instead of just one!  Sounds like you deserve to enjoy the rest of the day in peace and quiet.  I hope you do get to go to Ireland one day!

That would be so cool if you were picked to have your dream come true.  Your dreams are in your reach.  They are simple, but yet meaningful.  Those outfits are colorful.  :)
