Coming up for air!

Ok, I decided to get off the couch and come up for a breath of fresh air! I am slowly feeling better...I can say I feel better than I did 3 weeks ago!

Several weeks ago Ryan brought home some Chinese food. I opened a fortune cookie hoping for some inspiration to make me feel better. I couldn't help but laugh when I read "Children will play an important role in your life." I couldn't believe that at this stage in my life, right now, I would get such a message! I guess it was meant for me!

Ok, now I have to share some Sienna moments because...well... read on.

Here's a conversation I had with Sienna sometime in January.
Sienna: I don't have any bugers in my nose
Me: OK (I'm not sure what the correct response is to a statement like that!)
Sienna: I took them out with my finger
Me: OK (Again, correct response?)
Sienna: I took them out and ate them
Me: (pause...because my stomach was really hurting by this moment) Sienna, we don't eat our bugers, we put them in the garbage! (Then I proceeded to review this over the next several days)

The other night Ryan was gone with Kessiah and Jenessa (basketball practice and grocery shopping...I don't think I have set foot in a grocery store since December because of my wonderful husband). I was on the couch (wow, that's new) in the family room and Sienna and Logan were in the kitchen. I could hear them and it sounded like they were having fun, snacking on something like chips or crackers. I didn't feel the need to get up and check on them because I could hear them both and they sounded fine. Well, fast forward several minutes and Logan comes walking into the family room...I can barely recognize my own child because his face and the front half of his head are COVERED in CHOCOLATE PUDDING! Sienna had been "painting" her little brother...no wonder they sounded like they were having fun! Oh my, I didn't know whether to start screaming or laughing! I did grab the camera but the battery was dead. Thankfully, Ryan got home just as I put the little ones in the tub so I had some help cleaning up the kitchen.
