Interesting Week!

Well, it has been quite a while since I have posted!  We were out of town for 2 weeks for a 33Miles concert in Louisiana and Easter with my family.  Here are a couple of pics from Easter Sunday.  The pic of Jake crying is pretty funny (he didn't want to take a nap), and reflect the type of week we have had so far.  This week is GMA week.  That means daddy is gone all day every day, the kiddos are stuck with me which includes a trip to teach a one hour dance class everyday.  Fun for all let me tell ya!  We have also had house guests (Chris and Joy Lockwood and baby Ella 1 yr).  Jonah is at the age of 2 1/2 which means he is territorial of his things and his big brother.  Ella loves his things and his big brother so you can imagine how many "discussions" I have had this week with our baby boy.  Of course he started loving on her and playing with her on the day they were leaving!  UGH!!!  The tip top thing that happened this week is that on Ben and Jerry's free scoop day my children had a blast eating ice cream and RUNNING AROUND THE STORE LIKE THEY HAD A MOTHER THAT COULD CARE LESS WHAT THEY DO!!!  At one point Jonah was in the window swinging the fluorescent sign!  I was soooo embarrassed!  When we got back to the car, the conversation went like this...

Disclosure...yes I know I probably shouldn't have said what I said, but I did so anyway:
Me:  Jake and Jonah, I can't believe you acted that way and made such bad choices.  I am embarrassed boys, and feel like I looked like a bad mommy.  Am I a bad mommy?
Jake:   Well, that face your making at me when your talking to me is bad!

HA!  Yes, I know HA!!!  Thankfully someone walked up right as he was saying this so I didn't completely loose it on him.  So, that has been my week.  And my husband leaves to go back out  on the road today.  So, today is another day of bringing the kids with me to dance class, and a rehearsal tonight because my sitter is crazy busy this week.  Fun times people, fun times!!!  I really do love my life in case you are wondering just not so much this week!

Jen, you made me laugh with this post! Your boys are precious! I never thought a thing about how they behaved at Ben and Jerry's. You have nothing to be embarrassed about at all.

Please let me know if I can ever help you out with them while you have rehearsal. Lainie would love to have them come play anytime!
