this morning he woke up at about 6:30 walks into my room..."mom, I'm hungry"....and then we go from there. He is CONSTANTLY ASKING ME FOR FOOD or telling me HE IS HUNGRY.!
i get it!!! he can't really be that hungry, can he? he is a meaty little boy (meaning, on the "plus" side just a little) so he is obviously getting enough food. i change a poopy diaper about twice a day. so, what is going on? when i drop him off at my mom's house and then return, i ask my mom how he was. she says, she just kept feeding him, and he was perfectly fine.
do i just need to have a constant stream of food for my son in order for him to maintain a pleasant demeanor? i don't know....i do know that his catch phrase is "mom, I'm hungry".
it is just funny to me today, and i just laugh at how PERSISTANT it is.
this is sadie's new favorite thing...to chew on her fingers, hand, shirt. she is a slobber-puss and always wet!
so, i let my kids play in the dirt...audrey has always been into getting messing and i figure i will always be able to wash them off. they like to make "stew". they find rocks, flowers, dirt, bugs, grass, sticks...and put it in a pot with a little water and stir it up. (please do not look at this area of our backyard. It is going to turn into a lush beautiful flower garden. it is pretty hideous right now tho).

It stared with 2 other kids, but they both have moved out. It was pretty funny to watch the girls interact. They all get along great, but usually during the course of the 2 hour "class" someone is saying..."she isn't sharing/being nice/doing it right...etc." At first I was so bothered by it, but then I realized these girls are so fickle, that their mood changes in an instant. One minute they are squabbling, the next, they are best friends. I like trade-teaching b/c I like to know what is going on with Audrey. They are all pretty cute and fun friends for Audrey. She enjoys going to "school" at the other girls' houses.
The mom in my ward who set it up used to be a teacher, so it is actually pretty structured and educational. We use all of her resources and tools. I feel like it has helped Audrey learn.

Spring is here! We have thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful warm weather! It came right as we are getting over our sicknesses, so it feels like such a rebirth!
Audrey was in heaven, finally...the fight is over...she is allowed to wear sandals and no pants! (oh, and in case you were wondering, she has a tennis hat around her neck and under her shoulder...she added that little flare to complete her "look".)

But, many a night, I am deep in my slumber and roll over to see a ghostly figure walking towards we in the distance. Or, I will "sense" something and open my eyes and be 2 inches away from a white face.
Yes, these are my sweet children that startle me in the dead of night....not ghosts, goblins, or robbers, tender little people that need help going to the bathroom or that might have had a bad dream. Nevertheless, my heart usually skips a beat (or two) as I open my eyes and see something vaguely moving in the dark, and I will usually let out a little gasp (or something a bit louder).
The other disturbing aspect of this night walking, is when their eyes are open, but they are still asleep. This also leaves me feeling uneasy. When I think they are actually alert and awake, I try to make conversation with them, but then they just grin at me wildly or walk into walls that they believe are doors or just stare, blankly, with their eyes as wide as they can be....perhaps, maybe, just a little zombie-like.
I think that I have seen to many scary movies....
