Now I will admit that I spend a lot of time on Facebook. I have 316 friends and I know all of them. A few are from the Blogosphere but I talk to them on a regular basis. I dont add people that I dont know. I dont play games or anything I just check status updates and comment. I, myself dont do that many status updates. I simply get on there to see what everyone else is doing. With that said my page is pretty clean...there isnt anything on there that shouldnt/cant be seen. I know that some people "lock" their page so that it can only be viewed by friends which is cool. But what about those crazy people that put "everything" on their page for everyone to view?

The reason I am asking is because I got a friend request yesterday from a friend of Kaylyn's. Yes, a 6yr old. Now, I am not mother of the year by no means but I will not let my child have a facebook page until she is at least 14 or 15. I truly believe facebook is for older people...not children. What could a child possibly be on there for anyway?

Kaylyn is pretty tech savvy and gets to play games on the computer at school but honestly we dont allow her on our computer much at all. She does play Elmo's World here and there but that is it...and she is always supervised. She is never on the internet by herself...I am afraid of what she will find/see.

What is your thoughts on this? At what age will you let your child have a facebook page?

Super Bowl Commercials

Monday, February 8, 2010 1
I loved all the Doritos commercials. Here are a few of my favorite.

Then of course then was pretty cute too.

This Snickers commercial wasnt that bad either.

Which were your favorite?


Bad Daily Routine

Since I have not been working I have gotten into somewhat of a bad routine during the day. It all depends on Baby A and her schedule. Baby A and I get back to the house around 7:30 from picking her up and taking Kaylyn to school. She will normally play for a little while and then will start to get sleepy. She will fight it for a little while and then eventually will give in to a nap anywhere from 8:30-9. Once I get her down for a nap I will not lie...I get comfy on the couch and take a nap too. Normally last about an hour to an hour and a half. We will then get up and I will feed her and she plays pretty contently for the rest of the morning. I will blog stalk or play around on Facebook while watching the Today Show and then my local news at 11am. Around noon its time to feed Baby A again while watching Family Feud. I have watched Family Feud so much I do believe I have seen them all.

Around 1 Baby A will normally lay down again for her afternoon nap and I will get back on the couch however this time I make sure to watch Days of our Lives. Yes, I have gotten back into Soaps. I know its sad but I have been watching it on and off for about 15yrs now and gotten back into it. It never takes long to get caught up. Kaylyn gets off the bus at 3 and shortly after Baby A is usually back up. I make snacks for Kaylyn and start her homework while getting all of Baby A's stuff together. Her dad normally is here by 5.

Of course I do clean here and there and do laundry when it needs to be done. My point to all of this is that I am in the house pretty much every day. I need outside time. I need to get out. I feel like I have gotten so lazy and I have never been this way. Baby A's mom doesnt like it when I take her places and prefers me to stay at home with her. While I understand why I still think there are times when I need to get out. So this morning when I picked up Baby A I told her mom that next Friday would be the last day I am available to keep her. She seemed to understand, but I really need the freedom.

Before I started keeping her after I would drop Kaylyn off to school I would go to the park and walk 2-3 miles a day. The energy from that would keep me going all day. I would come home and clean, do laundry and take care of things. I am hoping to get back into that routine.

I have a promising job lead that I am hoping will work out in the very near future. I am praying this will work out because I would only be working 3 days a week. Please pray that this is the right job opportunity for me.

Hand Me Downs

Thursday, February 4, 2010 3
I love me some hand me downs. I technically have never "had" to buy Kaylyn any clothes. I have though because I found some really cute clothes but she has never needed them. We have been so blessed to have 2 people always give us their hand me downs.

When Kaylyn was born of course I received a ton of clothes at her/my baby shower. Then when I returned to work when she was about 3 months old I had a friend bring me 2 huge black garbage bags full of clothes. See her daughter was exactly a year older than Kaylyn so all of the clothes fit Kaylyn perfect for every season. She continued to bring us clothes at every season change until Kaylyn was about 3. She had more clothes than I know what to do with. There we even items that still had tags on them. Not to mention they were always clean clothes, they never had any stains or holes.

Shortly after Kaylyn turned 3 one of my moms really good friends asked my mom Kaylyn's size. My mom told her and then within a week she brought my mom 4 big, black garbage bags full of clothes and shoes. These too were great clothes...very clean with no stains or holes in them, including the shoes. This nice lady would give us 2-3 bags every time it changed season. At one point we had so many bags of clothes we didnt know what to do with them. So as you can guess there were some clothes that she didnt even get a chance to get into because right now she is literally growing like a weed!

The shoes have been the cutest too. She has been given several pairs of flip flops, dress shoes, tennis shoes, and boots. However, like the clothes some of the shoes she never got her feet into. Like this morning for example...I put her in a pair of khaki pants with a white long sleeve blouse that had a brown sweater over it. It was so cute. So I thought to myself...I know I saw a couple of pairs of brown boots in that bag. Those would go perfect with her outfit. So I go and picked this cute pair out.

Well I couldnt get her foot in there! It was a size 10 in kids and that's what size her foot is...or so I thought. By the time I got the boot on one foot I could tell her toes were all smashed so I reluctantly took them back off. Then I tried this pair.

Same thing with these. I couldnt even get these zipped up! Now I am all upset because she didnt even get to wear these! They look practically brand new, they have no scuff marks on them at all. So I am a little sad because I had to put her darn tennis shoes on her that really didnt go with the outfit. I am sure her teacher is probably thinking "what was I thinking?"

So needless to say...these will be a good hand me down to someone.

My grandparents didnt get to attend Kaylyn's birthday party because they were sick. So yesterday we happen to be at my parents when my grandparents came over. They brought Kaylyn's birthday present with her too. Kaylyn opened up her present and it was a little make-up kit. Kaylyn was so not so much! It had 3 eye shadows (blue, pink & light purple), face glitter powder, liquid glitter body gel, and 2 glitter lip glosses. Of course I let her play with it since my grandparents were still there. This is what she looked like...

Awww, she has so much to learn about make-up....

Yes, its only Tuesday but its Post It Note Tuesday! That makes it all the better! After my Post It's dont forget to head over to Supah's to see her Post It's!


Update on My Grandfather

As you know from this post my Grandfather had a full body scan to see if his cancer had spread. They called Friday and scheduled an appt for today for him to come in to get the results. I got the call today from mom to tell me the results. Unfortunately he has Stage 4 non Hodgkin's lymphoma. Not the results we were hoping for. It is a very aggressive cancer so he will be starting chemotherapy right away. I wanted to thank everyone for your prayers as well as your continued prayers. This is going to be very hard for him as well as my family.

Not Me Monday

Yes, my friends! It's that time again! It's Not Me Monday! So here is what I have NOT been doing the last week! After you read my Not Me's dont forget to head over to MckMama's Blog and see what her and everyone else have NOT been doing lately!
  • I did NOT put on a pair of pantyhose they other night and stick my finger right through them on my thigh. I did NOT freak out because it was my only pair of hose and I had to wear them that night. I then did NOT out liquid band-aid over the hole in hopes it wouldnt grow. I know what liquid band-aid is used for and its not to fix my pantyhose.
  • Kaylyn did NOT get sick again this past week. I did NOT have to take her to the dr to hear the diagnosis of walking pneumonia again. She has NOT had this times in the last 6 months!
  • I did NOT cheat on my diet several days last week. I seriously want to lose weight so I would never cheat!
  • I did NOT do like 7 loads of laundry on Saturday! How can 3 people get up 7 loads of laundry with in a few days!
