Today the kids can't go outside and play....it's raining and I don't like biking in the rain and although I think my kids would, it's pretty cold and I'd end up hauling the three of them home ALL CRYING...Then I would be crying. It's hard to be indoors all day and the kids were so bored they fell asleep. (which I LOVE... ahhh the silence) While the older kids had a little happy nappy time, I was able to (with the help of my AWESOME sister) play in the studio for a bit. Don't you love him?? Reealllly how could anyone not love this guy?! He let me know when he was done...I wonder what picture that is?? and then he went to sleep and I'm just sitting in the quite thinking about cleaning...but not really planning on it.
Last night we purchased our new car seats for the kids. They will not stay put in those lame booster seats and for my sanity sake I just decided to get 5 point harness seats for the older kids. If I had to yell "you better sit down right now or else Miss Hanagan will come and get you..." I was going to turn myself over to the likes of said Hanagan.
I convinced Ryder that his carseat was a "Transformer seat" and like magic...he now crys when he has to get out of it. And well...Haven's was just so pretty she was happy to get into hers....The law is 8 years old or 80lbs? Sooo I've decided that that is how the government is trying to stimulate the economy. They passed laws that make any persons with 3 or more kids by an SUV type car to fit their children/carseats for 8 more years. Well anyway I'm glad it's done and they are safer. I watched this slide show on YouTube that had me in tears... nuff said.
When Haven was a baby she'd sound like she was dying EVERY TIME she was in her seat.... it was craziness. Not proud of it but, my husband actually invented the "Brittney Spears." I'm sure when her driving with baby on her lap was... all over the news there were a few people in Laie wondering what her connection to us was. Haven didn't cry it out...or quiet down after a while, she'd scream till she passed out ( I swear) then wake up a second later for round two. I really didn't go anywhere that I didn't absolutly have to go in those days. Till this day, I don't like to go to the store or shopping with the kids. I'm not saying that other people like to take their kids....but I get knots in my stomach and break into cold sweats when I think I have to go shopping with them. I sometimes live off of saltine crackers and tuna to avoid a trip...true story. Things are much better now...I faithfully pray for "car seat babies" when I'm pregnant...also true story. Have a great day everyone!!
