My Navigator

I found a new way to keep the boys (or at least Cody) busy while in the Car driving to and from the babysitter's house... I was looking for something to give to Garrett on Monday on the ride home.  Something for him to play with that would occupy him, but that he couldn't destroy.  I didn't have any toys in the car and he was bored and crying.  I noticed the Albuquerque map that I had in my door cubby.  It's laminated and folds up and I really didn't even need it anymore... Perfect!  So I handed it back to him and he was happy.  Cody then of course wanted to play with it.  

So, I started a game.  Garrett is telling me where to go... he's the Navigator... and Cody can be the Translator... you can tell me what Garrett is saying.  You know cause he talks baby and I don't.  ;-)  Anyway Garrett got bored with the map pretty quickly and took over playing with Cody's toy cars and Cody took the map.  He loved it.  He told me to turn here and go straight.  "Head toward the Highway Mom!"  So, he has started being the Navigator on the way to the babysitter's and on the way home.  

So, funny how something like that out of desperation for something to occupy Garrett would come up.  He may get tired of it quickly... who knows!  I think it's pretty cute, and kinda fun for me too!

My One Word for 2012

A few weeks ago I wrote about New Year Resolutions and how last year I decided to just use a "one word" to describe my goal for the year.  Well, I decided to do that again this year because it worked pretty good last year.  I've been thinking and I have finally decided on what my "one word" will be for this year.  


I have no idea where all and how the "Balance" will come, but that is my goal for this year!  

My Southern Drawl...

I've noticed in the past couple of weeks small comments from my Texas born Son and Husband that I now have a southern drawl... especially when saying certain words.

I can't deny it as I have noticed that I have picked up the Texas Twang a bit also... LOL

Words that I have noticed are much more Twangy: Well, Caelan, ??*&#  I am not sure what other ones there are but I am thinking it is a growing list. :-)

I am also not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing...hmmm

Jury is still out on that one!

I am having a good week and so are all the boys.

I am going to start posting everyday... if I can... LOL

I have a lot of catching up to do about the past couple of months, and all that has been going on in our world.

Ta Ta for now!
