The Fix is On

The dog is 8 months old. I'd been putting his neutering off simply because of the cost. He has a hernia that he was born with so we can have that fixed as well if we want to shell out more $$. I got a price from our vet for the neutering and it is a base price and then you have to add all these *extra* costs in. I thought the estimate was way high. So I decided to call the Vet down the street. It's amazing the difference in costs. So I decided to go with the new place.

Either way it has to be done like yesterday. He's beginning to hump everything in sight and the kids think it's the funniest thing when he grabs their legs.. ugh..

Hopefully next week he will be singing soprano ..

It's a Free Saturday

When I say free I mean free of obligations. The man is working from 7-12 and then playing in a golf outing so we won't see him til later tonight. I did my massive clean last week so I only have odds and ends and a pickup to run today. It's so nice not to feel the pressure.

The weather will be lovely.. sunny and cool at about 60 degrees. We can play outside and ride bikes and walk the dog. We are already planning on Sonic for dinner since we haven't had that in a while. The Man doesn't like it as much as I do so we don't go too often. I may even attempt the red box again to get a flick for the kids..

I just found the baby with the box of dog treats feeding the dog them one after another...

And so what if she wants Jax for breakfast.. we'll make up for that later today :)

I'm off to do whatever on my free day

Belated Birthday Wishes

OK I suck. Apparently the old adage about the 3rd child being the forgotten one may be true. At least in my case it's not on purpose and rarely happens. I rarely have time to sit and compose this blog while at home so I missed my baby's 2nd birthday post.
A thousand apologies to her. I would say that she probably doesn't mind but from what I'm seeing of the terrible two's it's probably a big deal. The loud and assertive "No!" is proof. The screaming, crying, throw myself on the floor tantrums over a simple piece of candy can make a weathered child care giver run in the other direction.

But then there are those days when she is just her sunny funny bunny self. And you just have to smile when you look at her face and all those tiny little freckles beginning on the bridge of her itty bitty nose. They are probably there as a result of my lax sun-blocking skills but hey they are cute nonetheless. She giggles and puts her hand in front of her mouth when she farts and laughs that belly laugh when she and Chloe are playing. She has a personality all her own and yet I can see bits and pieces of others in there. To say Alexa is stubborn is an understatement, she can be downright bullheaded. I suppose she gets that from me so in that case it's a great personality trait.

I hope she continues to be her own sassy little self and grows up to be the independent young woman I know she can be. No matter how old she gets she'll always be my littlest baby.. So Happy 2nd Birthday Wexa .. Mommy loves you very much.
