My morning with "Me"...


"Me" is actually Elijah. Stevie's 3yr old brother. We had a spend the night party here last night with all his brothers b/c Mike & Kathy are still in the hospital with the the new baby (which has now been named :Samuel Lewis Stovall).
So last night was pretty hilarious, trying to get the all fed and in the bed on time and stuff. Elijah refers to him self as "me" a lot and pretty much speaks his own language. "Me not sleeping here, me sleeps at ours house".
"Me" also grabs at his wee wee a lot. I asked him do you have to TT and he said yes, so we went but he kept on with the grabbing so I said why are you doing that and he said " Me peepee has dust on it" which of coarse is not true but still made me laugh for 5 mins, which encouraged him to continue saying it over and over. I think I have been laughing since he first opened his eyes this morning. "Me" also spent about 20 minutes playing in a pumpkin garbage can, which he insisted on doing while I take his picture.
For those of you who think I am crazy, just remember that alot of you lived together before marriage so you could "try it on" and see how it works... well this is me trying on kids to see how they work! HA
I also am trying today to stick with my normal routine and see how that works with Kids in tow (just for future reference). So far we have been doing laundry, gone to target, and to the post office AND it is pouring rain here so it has been especially challenging. "Me" has told me that he likes me to carry him while running through the rain b/c he thinks its fun. "Me is ready to do that again, ME IS READY TO DO THAT AGAIN" (he also likes to repeat himself a lot getting louder each time, just to make sure I heard him.
Me tells me as we are pulling up to target " Me tummy is telling me hungry and me tummy is gonna hurt till I feed it. Me needs a snack here" ... This is after the 4 tangerines "me" ate 20 minutes prior to the trip.
David who is 5, requested steak and corn for breakfast this morning! Which I provided but then he changed his mind and wanted oranges instead, except he calls them lemons.
Poor Ralphie and Stevie, are not used to sharing me (laura) and this has been rougher on them than anyone. I told Stevie he could stay an extra night and we will carve pumpkins together so he could feel special. Ralphie.... just doesnt know what to do, last night he got in between me and Elijah and pushed Elijah away from me with his paws so that he could lay there. He barely lets Erik sleep next to me, and there was no way he was letting a new kid take his spot. Flossie stays hidden b/c all the noise and movement is scary to her.
Now what I really want to know is, how do Mom's shower? I mean what do I do with the kids so that I can shower? ha Do you always have to have another adult around in order to shower?

Reminds me of "George is getting angry!" - from the classic "The Jimmy" episode on Seinfeld of course.

haha, you've just learned that showers are a luxury.(it's my goal to have at least 1 per week, I mean day) Since Payton still can't walk or crawl I can strap her into the bouncy seat (it vibrates and has hanging toys and I would love to have an adult version). Sometimes this works, but showers aren't the relaxing getaways anymore unless I have Preston watch her...and even then they are always coming to find me before I'm ready to be found ;)
