Mr. C's Gnarley Eye!

So this morning I woke up to my conner nonner running in my room because his eye had swollen shut... literally..i wish i had a picture of it..It was gnarly looking this morning.

Jesse and I asked what was wrong, and he said he didn't know, but that it was hurting. We got some cold packs on it, and decided he would need to been seen today. Thankfully the cold packs did their job, and the swelling went down ALOT. While applying the ice I kept I asked him if anything happened to his eye. He thought about it, and told me last night at club sport he might of hurt it..he told me he was playing basketball and as he was trying to shoot he poked his eye pretty bad. Of course he didn't tell anyone about it. I told him it would have been nice to hear about something like that the night it had happened. I knew it could it looked pretty painful. Too bad we didnt take any pics this morning when it looked "really cool" totally swollen shut. The doc told us he did indeed scratch it pretty good and because of the scratch, he not only has the pain of that but it also turned into pink eye. He said the two of those together makes for a pretty sore eye. conner nonner wanted me to take pics and post a blog about his eye so he can see how cool it looks.

anyhow.. here are some cool pics of his eye..and the pretty cool scratch at the top...
Dont be alarmed..he may look possesed in these pics...and i know they look kinda creepy, but it does show how white the one eye is, compared to how red the other is. The really dark red is where he scratched it.

The right eye..nice and white..the way it should be...

the left eye...this is the one he poked.

he wanted to show me his tough guy pose....

I am sure glad it will heal and that he didnt scratch his cornea....that is one huge blessing when u dont have any health could have been worse and thank goodness it wasnt.

Toothpaste Anyone?

So this morning while I was enjoying my day off by cleaning my lovely house. I was waiting for little gavinators ride to come get him for preschool. I had asked him to go brush his teeth and then I got back to cleaning my kitchen. I finally looked at the time and realized that lil gav had been gone a LONG TIME brushing his teeth. He usually will brush...swish his mouth wash and then run back down to keep me company. Well I called out to him and then he came down.. I freaked OUT!!!

He had toothpaste ALLL OVER HIM!...well at least it didn't get in his was just all over his clothes. I asked him what he did, and he told me he didn't remember. "Ya right", he knew he did something naughty but i could was trying not to laugh because he was trying to sweet talk me right out of going upstairs to see the damage. .

I wish i had time to look at what the war zone might look like but then i hear the doorbell, and realize his ride for school is here. I quickly get him REdressed for school. I wish i had gotten a picture of the clothes.

He leaves, and I realize that my whole house smells like toothpaste. So off to school he went, and off to the bathroom I went. Its a good thing he was at school.

AT first I was sooo mad. REALLY?? Really?... The whole room upon walking in smells like this lovely minty freshness. Then, I see the towels on the ground that clearly he had used to try to "clean" up his mess. They are covered in toothpaste. I see the sink that he had soo nicely finger painted creations all over..and then i see the lil piles of toothpaste that he spilled in the sink...LOVELY..just LOVELY!

I then started to laugh.. that makes it another good reason that he was at school. I am soo glad he didn't see me react to this mess with laughs. I don't want him to think this can happen on a daily basis, because mommy "thought it was funny"...but it was funny to see that even though my "baby" has alot of grown up moments lately...this reminded me that he is still only 3..and he still has those naughty I just need to get into mischief moments! I soo love this mischief maker!

I had to snap some shots of him when he got home from school with him by his mess. Though, i was not showing him how funny i thought it was, I did give the normal mom lecture and explained why this is not ok..

The pictures will explain it all..I went in there ..he is pointing to what he had done,...he then rolls his eyes at me when I tell him that this is not ok to do...and then he give me one of those super cute faces that i couldn't resist snapping a shot of..

I just wish the pictures did Justice to the mess.

Ps: don't let ur eyes think we actually tiled out bathroom we didn' came that way....i know, i know, It is Horrific..One day it will be replaced.

(sorry the pics are crazy and not sized right..they were the only ones i could fit into the computer scanner and actually got them to work..i love being computer stupid!!)

It was February 29, 2000....Ten years ago...on a cold but beautiful sunny day...! We have been through sooooo much in our little 10 years of marriage. I must say, even when the times are ROUGH....and we feel like giving in... I realized that we still do have each other. Through the good and the bad...and the happy and the sad. If we can get through all that we have these last ten, and we survived..then I know without a doubt we will get through whatever lies ahead. Thank you for never giving up on me! Thank you for lifting me up when I needed you.

10 years!!!!

Happy anniversary Jesse....thank u for saying "yes" 10 years ago.

ALso.. Thank you for asking me to marry you again last night on our date...It made my heart melt....I know I am not an easy person to live with. I know that there are times when I am just a big pain in the butt....but....I do thank you for loving me no matter what!

As I sit here remembering our day, I wanted you to read the words of "our" song that u sang to me that day....

When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I could offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love

When the evening shadows and the star appear
And there is no one to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love

I know you haven't made your mind up yet
But I would never do you wrong
I've known it from the moment that we met
There's no doubt in my mind where you belong

I'd go hungry, I'd go black and blue
I'd go crawling down the avenue
There ain't nothing that I wouldn't do
To make you feel my love

The storms are raging on rolling sea
And on the highway of regret
The winds of change are blowing wild and free
You ain't seen nothing like me yet

There ain't nothin' that I wouldn't do
Go to the ends of the earth for you
Make you happy make your dreams come true
To make you feel my love

How real these lyrics are!!! I love you babe! Happy Anniversary!
