Back to school soon

I am going to let TC stay home this week and fore go ESY.
It starts SO early!!
He has been having such a hard time with his asthma and allergies too.

I came home today from hanging with my sister in Dallas.
I told TC about big school starting soon.(August 23rd)
He will have the same teacher he had last year.

He does NOT like her.
He cried and had a huge meltdown saying he does not want to see her.

It broke my heart.
So we will not be having any "back to school" talks for awhile.

We did go to wa*l mart and get him a backpack and lunchbox today though.

We went on a trip to Houston this weekend to a family reunion. Here are a few pics of the kids at the hotel. It was a lot of driving, but we had fun!

Getting real

Okay I want to get real today on this blog.
Let me just say that being home with my kids everyday is a major adjustment for me!
I love my kids.
I really do.

Sara is a 14 year old girl.
Anybody who was a teen knows what I deal with, the eye rolling, smart mouth stuff. But for the most part, Sara is good.

However, there are days when I want to escape from TC's rants and constant talk of Terminator, Transformers, Iron Man, etc...
It never stops.

It is never quiet in my house. Unless the kids are asleep. As soon as I wake up, TC wakes up. Most days I am lucky to get 30 minutes alone in the mornings.

Today is an example of what I deal with.
TC picked out an Iron Man guy at Wal M#art.
One of the arms didn't move right and TC had a huge fit.
He took the Iron Man guy and threw him in the trash saying, "Damn piece of crap." All the while, he is crying saying he needs a newer, better Iron Man.
He went on and on and eventually was able to calm down.

Today I took the kids to eat Chinese food.
TC took a bite of a potato wedge and started to gag.
Food issues.
I thought he was going to vomit.
Luckily he didn't, but he has MANY times. In public.

I am tempted to throw all of his toys out some days.
I yell and tell him to just "Please stop with the bad words and the fits over stupid toys!"
I wish I could watch TV without having to turn it up so loud because of TC's never ending chatter.
I feel bad sometimes for wanting to have some time alone.
I try not to let TC hurt my feelings but some days he does.
He will tell me he hates me.
I realize he does not know what he is saying and he is always very sorry after he upsets me.

Even though it has gotten a little better, it has not gotten easy.
I still have days when I think I cannot do this.
But I know I have no choice.

I am his Mom.

Another lost tooth

TC always pulls his own teeth.
I can't even remember how many he has lost!

Driving me bonkers

TC was supposed to go to ESY yesterday but he didn't go because he woke up and was all broken out. It was bad!

Come to find out, Sara had some body wash in the shower and TC used it because Sara told him to. He has severe eczema and cannot use a lot of things that have a strong scent or lots of perfumes. Poor guy.

He went this morning though. I sure needed some time alone in a quiet house. Sara did help me yesterday by taking him in her room and starting a movie. TC's behavior has not been very good this week and mama was losin' it. My mind, that is.

Yesterday I finished my math final exam and I plan on rechecking it before I actually submit it. Psychology is all that I have left. I can't believe I am almost done with school. Hubs and I are going out this weekend to celebrate. Probably a nice lunch at Red Lobster and a WAl Mart trip without the kids. Hallelujah!!

I will start my job hunt in August. I am a little nervous and scared.

Tc's buddy Jamel.
He lives on our street.
I have no problem with him coming over, but I talked to his Mom yesterday and told her a time and he showed up 3 hours earlier. Typically he brings his little sis along. Don't get me wrong, they are good kids but some days just having them show up with no advance notice gets OLD.

Here are some shots of him and TC yesterday.

4th of July 2010

I hope everybody had a Happy 4th!
We did. We popped fireworks at home and went to the inlaws. I made it through and got to play with a cute baby so it was all good!
