Going through major upheaval. Moved. Other stuff. Sorry if I have been less supportive/attentive to posts by those I watch. :( It's been...chaotic? Chaotic in multiple senses. That's all I will say for now. Just... Wish us luck. 
Happy Mother's Day to any and all who have ever been in the role of "mom." (Yes, some Dads have to be in the "mom" role, same for aunts/uncles/etc.) 

So as I sit at the computer, my 5-year-old is playing Super Mario 3D World and my 7-month-old is napping. Being a mom is a lot of work: The apartment is a disaster waiting desperately for me or my spouse to clean it. We'll be doing more of that tonight after both boys are down and out.  

Being a mom has been quite the learning curve. I've decided potty training is the worst part of parenthood. Been struggling with training our oldest kid for the last 2-3 years! He's five. He should've finished potty training a long frickin' time ago! But we set up an appointment with a behavioral specialist. Maybe the specialist can figure it out since we can't. :(

I love my kids. I get frustrated a lot. Like the other day, I told Jaxon to go out and play BY THE TREES I COULD SEE. I had the baby strapped in the stroller. I started cleaning out one of the cars. I looked up and couldn't see the five year old. I panicked. I took the baby into the apartment, told my husband we needed to hunt down the five year old as all kinds of scenarios raced through my over-active imagination, stimulating the panic. We found him hiding BEHIND the apartment building! 

Good thing we found him. In today's world, he could've been kidnapped or hurt or something, and I would've felt absolutely devastated for not being more aware of my kid's location in relation to my tasks. :( I hate that it isn't like when I was a kid in the 80s. Back then, your parents would simply tell you to go play outside with no fear of you getting worse than a scraped knee or a bee sting. :/ Now though, being a parent is down-right terrifying. Constantly hear about kids being taken from their families or getting killed in car accidents (usually because of improper fastening into car seats/booster seats.) 

Well, that's enough babble from me. Hopefully the day is good for all who have been in the Mom role! 
Chocolate Goatee by LadyKnightPounce83
Chocolate Goatee
My son's fifth birthday was yesterday. He had a coupon from Barnes&Noble Kids Club and got a chocolate muffin/cupcake thing. it was huge, anyway. The result? A goatee made of chocolate! :D

Long(ish) story:
First, a few weeks ago, our cable box was randomly resetting itself. So we called up the cable company, and they replaced the cable box. A few days later, the TV started having problems by putting vertical lines through out the screen. We replaced it with a Presidents' Day sale. 0_0 A week or two after we replace the TV, the cable box gives us the message that the DVR functions are not working. So we call the cable company AGAIN (last Friday as a matter of fact) and set up a time for them to come take a look. The repair guys came over this morning and said the hard drive to the cable box had gone out. >.< So, they gave us another cable box. While they were fixing/replacing the cable box, Jaxon went to go the bathroom and somehow took the seat off the hinges and said he could not fix the toilet. I was like, "You couldn't have disassembled the toilet!" Turns Jaxon HAD somehow (at least partially) disassembled the toilet seat. 0_0 So, I took a look at that after the repair guys were done with the cable box and fixed that. 
With any luck, everything is imperfectly fine now and will continue to work for at least a few days. >.< 
oh. that's where that is. >.< I thought it was under one of the "submit" thingies. I'm rarely on this part of my page, so I didn't know where this thing was that everyone kept messing with the other day.

I do not entirely live in the "Real World," thanks to the combination of much reading of sci/fantasy novels, an over-active imagination, and friends who tolerate my oddities. ^_~
