All Alone

Well I am very proud of myself this last week Stephen went out of town to the Big Easy and I stayed all by myself ( with the kids) at my house. Usually when he goes out of town I ask someone to stay with me like my brothers or sis. but I thought it was time I grow up and get over it. My whole life I have always gotten so scared at night, even with Stephen or my parents there. But I did great and it was kinda nice, our night schedule was so smooth dinner, bath and bedtime I realized that when Stephen comes home since the times vary so much that we often don't have much of a routine. But when he did get home I couldn't have been happier, I really do like knowing that he is in bed next to me. Jackson had to be my bedmate for those nights.

On friday the fun began. We woke up early to get ready for the zoo, we were all dressed and our food was packed when Jackson got diharea, he said he still felt fine and wanted to got to the zoo so we continued to get ready then Hudson throws up everywhere. So we decide to call of the Zoo trip and the rest of the day was spent cleaning up throw up and poo. Needless to say it was not the best day, luckily Stephen was home to help out that night. The next day there were a few mishaps here and there but I think they are doing better.

Here is Jackson sleeping in the car on the way into town.

You are so funny. Damon goes on dunes trips almost every other weekend. I stay alone all the time. Take advantage of it..........no dinner to make, no need to look cute, and party all night!! It's fun for a night or two, but that's it!

I am the same way I used to hate being home alone. I used to hang out at my mom's till James would get home. I have recently grown up and decided I kind of like being home alone. I put the kids early to bed, set my house alarm and just hang out and watch all the girly movies I want all night long.
That stinks that the boys were sick though. That's not fun to clean up especially when your pregnant.

I enjoyed catching up on your blog -- this one was hilarious, although at the time I'm sure it was not too fun. So that's pretty great that you have enough patience to wait and find out what you are having ... the ultrasounds were way cute! Have fun and I'll talk to you later -- xoxo

You know I'm a scardy cat too, but sometimes it is nice to have the house to yourself to get things done.
Don't let people get to you about not finding out. It's going to be great. I can't wait to see what this one looks like.
I think I'm out for the Zoo tomorrow. Have fun!

Poor guys! And no zoo on top of it all. Hopefully it passes soon and you don't get it. Also, about hubby leaving I am so with you on that. I hate it and can't stand to be home alone with kids at night. It scares me and it is so hard. so, Good job!

Hey Crystal,
I forgot Jill mentioned you were prego. Congrats and I can't believe you have the patience to not find out what you are having. I thought about doing that this time, but I can't wait for things. I give Jason all his Christmas presents early because I just can't wait. I know its pathetic. Anyway, you look great and your kids are still as cute as ever. Oh, and I did get a new camera and I love it, but I went with the sony.
