TheTale of a Two Year Old

I just wanted to share a couple of stories that happened over the last two days. Yesterday was one of those days where you swear if you didn't love your kid so much and it wasn't illegal you would sale him. All of you mom's who have a two year old, or have ever had two year old know what I am talking about. Hunter was doing everything he could think of to drive me crazy. He was having a bad day and making sure I did also. We went to sacrament (late as usual) and 15 minutes in I was ready to take him home, well it didn't get much better from there when he got home he was hitting, kicking and yelling at me. Well being a single mom, I didn't have someone to give him to and take a break, so I put him in his crib (yes he is still in a crib), from there he was yelling and throwing toys, adn jumping in his bed. After about 25 minutes of this he finally fell asleep. When he woke up he was in a better mood and we had a long talk about not hitting, bitting, and kicking. Well later that day Hunter was in Grandpa's room jumping on his bed, and grandpa was wrestling him. Grandpa told him the should pretend to be a sleep, Hunter jumped out of the bed and fell to his knees while telling grandpa they needed to say prayers first. He started "Heavenly Father, bless us to be safe, bless us to be good, bless us not to hit, and bless us not to bite, and bless us um, um, not to kick. Amen." It was so cute I couldn't be mad at him any more, He is trying so hard to be a good boy, even thought some times he tries harder than others.

So then last night about 11:30 I was getting ready to go to bed when he started to scream, I went in to check on him and he told me he had a bad dream. So I picked hom up and took him in my room and let him sleep in my bed for a couple hours. After he had been there a while he shook my arm (waking me up) and said "mommy I afraid" I asked him of what, he said "nothfin" I told him I loved him, he said "lofe you too" leaned over and kissed me. It was the sweetest thing. He is so tender hearted, and loving. I am so lucky to have him. He is amazing.

This week was such a nice week Hunter and I decided to go to the zoo with my aunts, cousins and their kids. The boys always have so much fun together. They loved being outdoors, and watching all the animals. Fall is the best time to go, the animals were all active and moving. Thanks for inviting us Aunt Tina.

We went to the pumpkin patch with our family and picked out pumpkins, then on Sunday night we went to grandma Ann's house to carve them. It was so funny this year Hunter hated the feeling of the pumpkins, and now he knows what it means to "throw up". So last night when we were carving the pumpkins I made him help me scoop out the guts, he put his hand in, pulled it right back out and started to gag. He told me he couldn't do it it he was going to throw up. I told him he had to help me so he continued to gag, drooled a tiny bit, then told me he was "sick, and I made him throw up". What a little stinker!

I know you may all think I am a huge GEEK for this, but I love Twilight! The new trailer was released last week, so I thought I would post it so all the closet Twilight fans could watch. (p.s. see the countdown at the bottom of the posts)

What the SNOW?

Fall is my favorite season of all. I love the cool air, the change in the color of leaves. I love waking up to a cold morning, and wearing sweat pants to bed. I know this makes me sound like a big geek, but I also love the feeling of back to school time. Well as you can guess I was pretty upset when I woke up Sunday morning to what, that's right, SNOW. Did we even get fall? Where did it go? Well now that it's warming up and I am not so bitter about the whole thing, I decided to post some of the pictures of Hunter. He was so excited about the snow I had to let him play in it for a minute. So now on top of the snow I have some explaining to do to Hunter, because since Christmas last year he has been asking me when Ho Ho is coming. Well I have told him when the snow comes back so will Santa, now he thinks it's time for Santa to come.

Today I am officially a mom. Hunter will be three in Dec. That means that I have been a mom for two years 9 months and 18 days, and have not yet had the privilege of cleaning up vomit, until today. I am a nurse so naturally I have cleaned it up before, but not in my own house. I guess I should just count myself lucky that I have not had the experience yet and stop whining about it, but I just wanted to let all the mom's out there who know what I am talking about I feel for you, it sucks!
