Things I have said to my child!

In the process of moving this weekend, I have had quite an adventure. Saturday was spent moving my husband and I into our new apartment and today I am watching Lucas, my niece Paige, and nephews Mike and Nick. While I am here babysitting, the rest of the family is moving my sister Cat into her new trailer.

Earlier in the week since Stephen had to go to work I figured Lucas and I would spend some time at the apartment getting a few things setup as we had dropped a large haul of things bought from Walmart and Target off the day before. While in the new apartment I plugged the Winnie The Pooh nightlight into Lucas's room for him to view and look at while I was unpacking things. As soon as I had done so he pulled the cover off the light, leaned down and licked the light bulb! I promptly had to in a stern voice say "WE DO NOT LICK LIGHTBULBS."

When I was leaving the house earlier in the day to head to the apartment my dad passed me a package that had showed up at my sisters house for me. It was my latest Blogging for Book pick. I figured I would have it sent to her address because I did not at the current time have an idea of when it would ship and if we were going to be at our new place or not.

Oddly enough that night after putting everything away, I sat down on the floor (a house without furniture is pretty lame!) and opened the package. This was the book inside:
After the event I had that day this book could not be more PERFECT! It's not a long book at all, but more of a coffee table book with funny pictures. I could also see myself taking a few of the pages and framing them around the house.
This is perfect for any parent who needs a little laughter and to know they are not alone. We have all said something to our kids at one time or another that we honestly admit we never thought we would utter in our life. 
For me this book was a perfect 10/10 in everyway!
As always I received this book for free from Blogging For Books for the purposes of my honest review"

Moving- Our New Adventure!

So I took a few days off blogging and writing because honestly we have been up to our heads in deep water.

For over a month now we have been fighting tooth and nail to process paperwork at an apartment complex because we need to vacate our current residence by October 1st.

Today being September 1st, we GOT OUR KEYS!

We are so excited. This is going to be a very interesting journey for my husband and I, as well as our son. For me I have lived away from only about 9 months during my first marriage. Even then I didn't have to worry about paying rent because he was in the military and they provided our housing allowance. When my husband moved out of his parents house it was into our current house which we live with my parents. Well my mom was here when she was alive.

For Lucas he has always had my parents and sister Catherine in his house. Now he is going to be moving into a two bedroom apartment with only Stephen and I.

Our luxury has been living next door to our church so Sunday mornings we could just walk over. Now we will have to drive.

We also get to learn a new town. I am semi familiar with the area out there. But there is still things to explore and find.

This is going to be a very exciting journey for us.
