Its too late to what?

Cowboy can be a little obstinate once he makes up his mind, like any mature little 3 year old. Here are just a couple of examples of that.

So whenever we're driving around doing errands I plug my little ipod in and turn on "Apologize" by One republic. I tend to sing out loud when we're in the car and Cowboy joins in whenever he can. Well when we get to the chorus of this song, Cowboy thinks that they're saying, "Its too late to call the giants," rather than "Its too late to apologize." Don't even think about telling him its different. But I can actually see where he's coming from.

Yet another incident where Cowboy just can't be wrong and must always be right. Today we saw a ski tote on top of a SUV and told me it was a boat. There are in fact quite a few kayaks and ski totes around here being so close to Lake Tahoe.

This is pretty much how the conversation went.

Cowboy: Mommy look a boat on top of the car.

Me: No. That's for skis.

Cowboy: No its a boat

Me: That isn't a boat it to put skis in.

(This goes on for awhile and you get the idea)

Finally Cowboy gave up and said, "Okay mommy its for skis. Pretend its a boat."

I don't know that I really won that argument.

Mondays are stinky!

I hate Mondays, I really really really hate Mondays. I hate waking up to an empty bed and knowing I'm going to have to do it 5 more times before I get to see him again. Really its only the 47th Monday I've had to do it give or take a few. OK I'm done whining now.

One more week until Thanksgiving break. Chad and I decided to just hang around here for the Holidays. Mostly I’m just being selfish and don’t want to spend the break driving to and from somewhere only to not hang out with each other once we get there. We’ll also be here for Christmas.
We’re still looking for jobs. Chad is still employed but we're looking elsewhere since the housing market is so stinky and Pacific West, a residential construction company, isn't looking so great. It’s so much fun spending my kid free moments staring at a computer screen typing in the same info over and over again. We’ve gotten to the point where we’re applying to jobs anywhere, including Canada -although that one was kind of an accident but the job pays well so we’ll see.

Cold Day at the Park

We decided to go to the park Saturday morning before dragging the kids around doing errands. It's usually in our best interest to get all the wiggles out. I had the camera in the car so thats why we're posting something that we do every other day, otherwise mommy goes crazy!
It was a chilly day so we didn't stay long. Stupid winter! Actually the weather here isn't too bad. Its never really super hot and never gets super cold. At least not like Rexburg, but then again, nothing really does compare to a Rexburg Winter.

Here's Cowboy just enjoying the ride. We're working on pumping his legs but he hasn't quite figured it out and usually ends up just kicking like a crazy man.

Here's my little blue eyed boy! Although its not necessarily the best parenting to let Mooch eat he swing, he sure looks cute trying to eat that grimy thing!
