I am so ready for race season to start. We have started watching bowling on Sunday afternoons. BOWLING of all things. It is really neat though, they usually have more in 4 frames than I can bowl in an enitre game.
Today was a good Saturday. We got up and had breakfast, then i hung clothes on the clothes line, and then McKenna and I went to get a haircut. She looks super cute and so grown up with her new hair cut. She is growing up so fast. It is so fun to watch her grow and learn.
Tucker is doing well. The docotors have put him on Prevacid to see if that will help with his recurring sinus infections and it has helped. I was really shocked when that is what he gave us at the ENT. I thought is he hearing me? I said that he has sinus infections not reflux. Oh well, another case where the doctor knew better than me, what a shocker. He had taken two 10 day round of antibiotics in Oct., and Nov. Then in Dec. we graduated up to 20 days and then he had 20 more in Jan.. I felt bad for him having to take all that medicine. I think it was because I hate taking antibiotics. He only had the killer diaper rash that usually goes along with it once though. I was really glad of that. I think that is one of the worst things that can happen, there is nothing that you can do to make it go away instantly and he would just cry and cry. Now we take Allegra, Singulair, and 2 breathing treatments a day along with our Prevacid! That is a lot for anyone, especially a 2 year old. The ENT said that we could stop some of it if the Prevacid worked. He was allergic to eggs and that passed. I am so glad that it did. McKenna was allergic to peanuts and it was hard. A trip to the grocery store seemed to take hours. I had to read EVERY label. Food allergies is one of the hardest things for people to understand though. Unless you have a child that has an allergy you don't know how hard it is. I have had such bad experiences with people that act so casually about them. They are hard.
I am so glad that Fireproof the movie is out on DVD. I think that everyone should see it. It is wonderful. A great Valentine's Day Movie. Yes, you will cry. Well, I cried like a baby both times that I saw it at the movies. It will make you appreciate your marriage, and your parents.

Today was an interesting day at work. It is becoming more and more stressful and I am not liking it one bit. This is a picture of the kids on our last trip to Dollywood. They really loved it. On the way to daycare this morning Tucker started in with his random 2 year old talking and he said "i ride the bees, i ride the pigs" it cracks me up when he starts with that stuff. We went to Dollywood on New Years Day and just out of the blue he starts saying that this morning. I am so amazed at what he can do and say. He is already using the potty. That is how you can tell that you are a mom potty becomes a word that you say everyday, and you are excited about someone using the potty. I think that is why moms stick together. You can't call up one of your friends that don't have kids and talk about pooping and using the potty. They just do not get as excited as I do. I mean it is a wonderful thing. I have used cloth diapers with Tucker. That is another thing that I have gotten some strange looks about. I tell people that I use cloth diapers and it is like I am speaking another language. I did start using them to save money when I was doing the stay at home mom thing, now it carried over to at night and on the weekends. I really believe that is why Tucker is using the potty already. He can't stand to be wet and in the cloth diapers he can feel when he is wet.
McKenna is so excited that they are having a party at school tomorrow. It is the 100 days of school party. She had to take her box of Cheerios. I think that they are making treat bags with 100 treats in them, which amounts to counting 10 each of 10 small items and putting them in a ziploc baggie. To a 5 year old this might be one of the coolest things ever. I can't believe that she is 5. She is so grown up acting and thinks that she is a lot older than that. I just wish I could find some way to break the thumb sucking habit ( all ideas are welcome!!) I am not sure what to try next, short of taping a glove on her hand at night. That seem cruel to me though.
I think that I have rambled enough for onr night, I think that I might go to bed early tonight... until next time...

Well I thought that I should start with an introduction. My name is Jessica Mooneyham, my husband is Billy and we have 2 wonderful children. McKenna who is 5 and Tucker who is 2. They really are the love of my life. McKenna has started kindergarten and oh what an experience that was. She seems to think that she is 15 now instead of 5. Girls are such drama queens. Tucker on the other hand is all boy. That is the only way to describe him. He is big enough already to beat up his sister and make her cry. That is a typical day at our house. McKenna cries, Tucker cries, can you guys not play nice? over and over and over. Those of you with children understand exactly what I am talking about. Well this is my first ever "blogging" experience. I hope it was as good for you as it was for me.
