Hopefully he will have better luck (and habits) with his permanent teeth - This is the first of two crowns he needs on his molars - I didn't even know that they did that for baby teeth but the dentist says he needs them until he is at least 12, so if he has cavities they could effect his permanent teeth. - He is rather enjoying himself - missing school, laughing gas, and now he is being pampered watching cartoons and laying on the sofa!

For the most part they were benign but tonight as soon as I posted the last time, there were immediately 3 about you-know-what enlargement! - Can't have that on my babies' blog! - What I always wonder about spam is who buys this crap? - I almost get more angry about the people who actually buy into this junk and perpetuate the cycle than the spam makers themselves - after all we are a capitalist society - so I suppose they have a right to try to sell their product - I just want to hunt down the idiots that keep them in business!!
PS. Random thought - I just spell checked and Blogger.com's spell checker flags the word "blog" - kind of funny:) - I wonder if it will ever actually get in a dictionary - I often have to explain it to people!

Another general issue - somewhat related? - When in a group setting and the kids are doing something that is A-OK by you but all of sudden the other mom starts to reprimand her kid - do you stop yours too?
Uggh - this is what I don't like about school - If it was anything else we could just avoid the frustration - but can't avoid the bus stop!

I feel like I have to play my cards just right ... Ella is really pushing my buttons - I suppose this is her way of displaying frustration with Benjamin being in school. For the past 2 days she has been crying over the least little things (which isn't far from normal) but now she will cry forever! This morning she asked for gum and I said no because there are only a few pieces left - that was at 10:15 she is still crying about it almost an hour later. And its not just fussy crying its wailing/screaming crying! When Benjamin got home yesterday she kept picking on him, taking everything he set down and then not giving it back. Then with the baby she likes to 'help' but lately she wants to do it all by herself so there is Maiya naked on the couch mid diaper change and Ella refusing to give me the diaper because she wants to do it all by herself. And I have tried to get a couple pictures of the baby and Ella jumps beside her for every shot. (How dare I take a picture in this house and not include Ella - I swear I could go take pics of Zeke's poo and Ella would pose beside it) I want to handle this the right way though - I want' her to feel 'included' and 'respected' and all that psycho babble stuff but I also want to nip this crap in the bud! Or is middle child syndrome inevitable?

We celebrated daddy's B-day tonight - cuz this is going to be a busy week and because he got a new fancy remote and the gadget to get our DVD play set up upstairs and mommy wanted it set-up ;) As of the time of this post Daddy is not having birthday luck his fantasy team is struggling - he just yelled at Peyton so loud it made the baby cry!
So, what do you think of the time space continuum?

Do you think Einstein was right when he said E=mc2?
"Nooo, E is not square, its like this .. thats sooo easy"
How much did your house cost?
"Umm, I dunno, maybe it was a lot like $5" (smiles)
What is the purpose of life?
"What? I am too little, I only have 3 lives"
Another quick story, as they were getting ready for bed, Ella says to him "Pick up your dolls Ben" and he quickly corrects her "they are action figures - that's what you call dolls for boys"

I came home from late grocery shopping the other night - its too hard to do a big trip by myself anymore, I found poor Kyle comforting a fussy baby with Benjamin and Ella found as pictured waiting for their bedtime stories. Maiya wouldn't cooperate and apparently they couldn't wait anymore.

I was blog hopping a little the other day - as you can see at the top of this you can jump to the next blog that blogger hosts. I went a few ahead and it was titled "Matthew's blog" and it was a blog of a family waiting for a heart transplant for their infant son. The hurricane already had me in a a somber mood and my heart just broke for these people.
It seems sometimes "pray for me" and "pray for these people" and "keep me in your prayers" can be over used and loses its meaning. But tonight these people truly will be in my prayers as well as intense gratitude for all the wonderful blessings in my life.
Now what initially prompted me to write was that as you can see I have been glued to the TV watching the hurricane coverage - I am not so much watching as just keeping it on to see any new developments. So about 5 minutes ago Benjamin gets up from playing, turns off the TV and with a half stern look says "Mommy I turned it off - you have watched way too much TV today."
