I Got Played

Ok, I'm going to bite the bullet, and just put it all out there for you all in blog land, (both of you, ha).
He was about 30lbs,
maybe 3ft 2in tall,
kind of long bowl-cut type light brown hair,
a dimple just on the right cheek,
you know the type.

Well, he got me good.

He had me fooled. Blind sided. Totally oblivious to what was going on right in front of my eyes. My son knows how to get me, and he did.

This is how it went down. I put him in daycare over a year ago, and let me tell you, it has been really good for him. But, the whole first two months, he cried every morning. But, then he decided he liked it. He was doing great until they up and switched teachers on us with no warning. Well, he went through another adjustment period, but he found his way yet again. Everything seemed to be okay until, BAM, switched teachers again. Well, I'm pretty disgusted by this time, along with some other issues there, and I'm ready to change daycares. But everyone talks me out of it. Everyone said he'd be fine. Then, one day it started. He started crying again when I drop him off. The next day he cried, and the next, and the next, and the next, until it's been 3-4 months solid crying every day. It gets to where the first words out of his mouth when he wakes up is, "mommy, pweeeeeeease don't take me to that school and leave me. Paweeeeeeease don't leave me there". He cries all morning, every morning and when we get to school, they have to literally pull him off of me. I have to walk out, every day, while he is watching me leave and begging me so pitifully not to leave him there.

Well, a mother can only take so much, and last Friday was my breaking point. After the same kind of morning, I had a meltdown in my car all the way to work, and couldn't even go inside for all the sobbing. I talked to several people that day and told them all there must be something going on at that daycare that I did not know about because my son would not act like this for no reason. He said all the kids hit him and push him everyday, and school is just not for him. So what do I do? I start planning how I can get him out of that school immediately. There must be something horrible going on at that place to make my sweet little angel act like this.

And then there's my husband, who completely disagrees with me and tells me from the start that he is just playing me.

So, I tell dear husband that if that is the case, I'm not taking him to school anymore! He thinks he can handle the crying, and I let him have a chance at it. Monday, I let Scottie take Caden to school, and of course he cried and was just as crazy for him. But, that evening when we were at home, Caden asked me why daddy took him to school. When I told him it was because it made mommy too sad when he cried so much, he just said ok.

Tuesday morning,
Caden - "Mommy, will you take me to school?"
Me - "Not if you're going to cry"
Caden - "Mommy, I promise I will not cry, I will not cry forever and ever!"
Me(sucker) - "I will take you today, but if you cry I will not take you anymore! You'll have to go with daddy every day"
Caden - "ok, I promise I will not cry"

Guess what,


I so got played.............................by a 3 year old! Yes, I'm talking full on, wrapped around the finger, yanking on the heart strings, ha ha I got you, type played.

Moral of the story: Watch out for those short cute little people otherwise known as toddlers, they are very sneaky!

Look, how sweet!

My husband was watering our flowers outside tonight and when he got to one of our hanging baskets, a bird flew out of it. So, he took the basket down and look what we found,

Isn't that so sweet? I can't wait until they hatch!

Ok, so I'm in.

Well, I have officially been sucked into the world known as blogland. I'm in, probably way over my head. As a new blogger, and sometimes an overachiever, I am going to feel the need to try to blog at least several times a week. There are several blogs I follow right now, and they only post at most once a week and sometimes it's longer than that in between. I check them every day only to find the same old news I already read. So, I don't want to be one of those myself, but I also feel the need to warn you people, if there are any, that I am, well, um... boring. Now, don't get me wrong, I am ALWAYS busy. But, I don't really think much of it will be that interesting. But, nevertheless, here I am, blogging away. I guess it will be good to have a place to gather all of my thoughts together. I am a very "get it out" type person. I get picked on alot because if there is a decision to be made, from picking a new cell phone to finding a beach house to choosing a new set of dishes, I say make a list! I list out pros and cons, I list out details and see which one has the most matches to what I'm looking for. You name it, I list it. I need lists to go shopping(which I most definately don't always stick to) so I don't forget something. I make a notebook in January to plan my son's birthday party in May. I just like to get things out of me and onto paper so I can look at it, examine it, cross it out, add to it, highlight it, and keep track of it. So, I think this may be good for me.

Now, enough of my reasoning behind this thing. I guess I could let you know a little of who I am. Here it goes, in (none other than my favorite), List Style!

1. I am, most importantly, just a sinner saved by the good ol'fashioned grace of God, not even close to perfect, just forgiven.

2. Married to my high-school sweetheart since August 31, 2002. We started dating August 31, 1996 (I know, I was just a baby). He was the sweetest and hottest boy I had ever laid eyes on and I knew I had to meet him, but I was, and still am, very shy. Thank God he wasn't! We fell in love and have never been apart since.

3. Mom to the cutest, sweetest, most adorable, (insert loving adjective of your choice here) little 3year old boy that I have ever seen in my whole life. He is my life, my pride and joy. He has his 3yr old moments, but overall he is a really good child and I am so blessed to be his mommy.

4. I work at a credit union and I really enjoy it. Not so much the type of work, it's ok, but I love the people I work with. I have some really great friends at work which makes it so much easier to go in every day.

5. I sing with a bluegrass gospel group called CrossView. It is my dad, uncle, and me singing, my husband plays the guitar and the dobro, and a guy from our church plays bass for us. We have a lot of fun singing at churches all over North Carolina.

6. I want to get into photography so bad. I really enjoy taking pictures, although I don't really know what I'm doing. All I have is a little digital camera so I can't do much, but it would be so fun.

7. I wish I had one ounce of interior design in me. I see pictures and know what I like, but I can't get it to formulate in my brain. I am a copier.

Well, seven is a good number so we'll stop here. Now get ready everyone, soon I'm going to start posting pictures of my house and I NEED IDEAS. Whatever you can tell me will be great.

That's it, that's all I've got. Later people.
