may is here in just days

wow i cant believe how fast it has come to may already. dang.

things have been doing ok lately. keith is doing so well as far as not having any accidents in his pants. he has also been sleeping through the night most nights. which makes me happy. being that he is 4 and just now doing it, means alot because he is very comfortable living in our new place. Arianna is doing so good too. she has been going on the potty alot more lately im kinda just letting her tell me when she is ready. she has been talking alot. its so awesome to see how much she is growing. 2 1/2 yrs old already. it is also great that she is this big because when she was first born she was diagnoised with sleep apena and that had to be the scarist time for our family. for the first 3 months we(mannie and i) slept in shifts. because we could never knew if she was going to wake up. then at 5 months her alarm started going nuts at all hours. and one nite i had to call 911 to come get her and i because our car wasnt starting and she needed a doctor asap.. they gave her an rsv test and she had it. so she was admitted. then a few hrs later a neighbor and her 6 week old was admitted to. so im very thankful that she is 2 1/2 and making me crazy.
lovely may is upon us so good health to all

toddlers given alcohol drinks

so within the last month or so there has been 3 incidents of restaurants giving children alcohol drinks. Now as a mother of 2 young kids ages 4 and 2 1/2 when i get them a drink at a restaurant i will test it before them. i do it to make sure its what we asked for and to make sure it doesn't test funny.
so I'm really trying to understand how one the restaurant wasn't paying attention to what they were serving these kids and two how can you as a parent don't test your kids drink or look to see if its what u asked for. do u watch ur kids faces when they test that first test of the drink? you can tell if they aren't drinking something that they know. both my kids are at the age that they tell me if something isn't right.
parents please be aware of what is going on around you at the restaurant, or where ever esle you are at.

living in our blue house

well we moved into our new house a week before april 1st we have lived here a few weeks now. the kids love the new place. we have a trampoline in the front yard so they have been bouncing. we are slowly almost unpacked thank goodness. other then that we have been doing well. keith had to get a tooth pulled right after turning 4 because it was a dead tooth. which happens when they hit their head too much. or just their mouths. he was such a good boy when we had it done i was so proud of him. arianna has taken to potty training once we moved in. she is doing so well
