Fire Safety

I have been going back and forth in my head about how I was going to write this post. I have been over it time and time again. The day after Valentine's Day, my oldest son and his father's family lost two little boys to a fire. The boys were my son's cousins, his father's nephew's, and his father's niece's sons. His father's niece also lost her sister, which was her best friend, in that fire. The house was a total loss too. The people who made it out was the grandmother (the owner), the niece's boyfriend, the niece's nephew, and the niece's one month old son. Her 7 year old and 3 year old passed away due to smoke inhalation. It's such a tragic thing. My son's father's niece said the boys were right behind her on the way out the door but when she got out they had turned around and went back to their room and they were found under their bed. So please everyone, talk to your children about fire safety. I know fires are scary but they need to know an escape plan and route to help save their lives.

My 2 year old has a problem with sharing... EVERYTHING

So my sister in law and her two girls are staying with us til she moves into her new apartment next week and it's a huge change for my two year old son. He has issues with sharing just about everything. He has an older brother and sister, but he is not used to having a baby around his age that he has to get along with full time and have to share his "things" with. I am having to constantly tell him to share, and be nice. I am going crazy. I don't know what to do. He's never acted this way before. When I watch her during the day with my son, he freaks out if I have to hold her or anything. He's always screaming, "that's my mommy." I keep telling him, yes I am your mommy, but I am her aunt and she needs attention too. He also hates sharing his toys, but has no problem taking hers. He will hit her, or push her down. It just upsets me to see him act this way. I don't want him to be like this. Especially when he starts pre-k. If anyone has any suggestions please feel free to let me know. Thanks so much!!

Despicable Me 1 & 2

My son has me watching Despicable Me 1 and 2 about two times a day each! I'm not complaining though. These movies are absolutely adorable. I have to honestly say I have never seen them until now. My youngest(he's 2), received them both for Christmas from Santa. He is obsessed with the minions and he loves watching the movies over and over again. I don't mind it either. I think they are such cute movies and they keep his attention right on the movie for him being two. My other two children love the movie two and they are 8 and 13. So honestly the movie is for kids of all ages. If you haven't picked up the movie yet or haven't seen either of them yet, I highly recommend that you do. Thy are hilarious and I really don't think you would be disappointed!!! So check them out today!!!

A small look back into my year 2013

I think with this year coming to a close(thank god) and a new one about to start, I am going to make it my New Years Resolution to actually keep up with my blog in 2014. I really didn't do much writing in 2013. So much went on that I wished I blogged about and then again I didn't know how to or if I even wanted to. We''ve had our ups and our downs in our house like every family does, but maybe more then some should have to deal with. A few weeks back my fiancee's brother was staying here and he swore up and down since he was out of prison and on parolle he was doing so much better and that he would never go back and blah blah blah.. Well where is he today?? Back in jail. We had to call his PO. He stole from us. And not only us but my 13 year old daughter and 8 year old son. And right before Christmas. He swears up and down he didn't but when the cops called us and told us they got a hit off the serial numbers for my daughters 3DS XL well we all knew he took it. Taking from my fiancee or me is one thing but to take from our kids is another. Now the kids have no DS's and half their games are missing. Its really heartbreaking! Then after he leaves our house my fiancee's uncle moves in. This is only supposed to be temporary but who knows. I am going crazy already. No privacy, nothing. Also he acts like he owns my house or something! Rearranging things the way he wants them, doing what he wants, doing my laundry(and I separate my clothes and towels and what not. He doesn't #annoying), etc. I came home from a promo today to find half my Christmas decorations down and now they are all down!!! I'm pissed. He had no right. Nothing. I always wait til the New Year. I know it sounds like a lot of bitching but it really sets me off. You have to understand I have severe anxiety and depression and not to mention bi-polar disorder. So it takes a lot for me to not say a word. I don't like causing trouble and I don't want to start a fight. I know this is my fiances Uncle who raised him, but come on, what about me and my feelings about all this? My fiance is getting fed up too but we can't just kick him out. We honestly would never do that.
So anyways looking back on this year it wasn't all bad. We did take our kids on a mini summer vacation to Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York City. They loved it. We did so much in less then a week! We went to Hershey Factory, Crayola Factory, Camping, a family reunion, Atlantic City, Johnny Rockets(we highly recommend the place as a family) Jersey Shore, the boardwalk, Central Park, etc etc. It was fun and we got to know some of our family that we haven't really known before!
Then yesterday was another bad/sad day. My grandfather on my mother's side passed away at a nursing home. He had Alzheimer's and Dementia. Its sad he has passed but he is also released from the everyday pain he was going thru. I love him and will miss him dearly.
So this concludes just a tiny look back into my year. Now I can only go forward with hopes of a better tomorrow.
Here's to good friends and family, and hoping for all the best!

Happy New Years.

2014 Here we come! Bring it on because I am ready.
