Things I want to remember ...

Just a few things I want to journal because I'm afraid I will forget them and they are priceless.
Yesterday I had to get gas at our QT - which is literally 5 minutes from the house. Caidgen said, "I REALLY am so thirsty and hungry. I can't make it til we get home." IE - I went here with the field trip mom and she got me a cool slushy and there's tons of sweets in there let's go again. I debated but then opted for him to have the fun memory. As we walked into the store Caidgen took my hand and said, "Mom,after you buy it you can tell me how many quarters it costs and I will pay you. Cause I don't want to be a spoiled child." I could have cried there was such pride and gratitude inside me. "This is my treat," I told him. "No, Mom, really. I don't need to be spoiled."
Also yesterday I was sick (thanks, Dallas :)) and shortly after breakfast I rushed into the bathroom to get rid of it. Amie heard the noise and came running. "Mom! What was that?" "Just me throwing up, honey, it's OK." She stood still a moment and then threw her arms around my legs. "It's going to be okay, Mom. It's okay. You're okay." I bent over and hugged her and she patted my back before running off to play again.
ALSO yesterday, Blue took the kids to the movie store on their bikes (Amie had to put on the training wheels again since it was so far and she was a little scared on her pip squeak bike). Caidgen stayed on green for 10 days at school and that was his treat - to ride there and pick a movie. I stood outside as they biked home. They were so proud of themselves! Amie's little legs were FLYING around the pedals (seriously, she needs a bigger bike) and Caidgen was smooth sailing. They were so hot and tired but beaming with pride in themselves. We watched Enchanted and Ami threw her head behind me whenever there was a mushy part because Blue would stare at her and embarrass the poor romantic. Caidgen clung to every violent part - dragons and explosions and what not. How funny that they like the same movie for 2 totally different reasons. Cage is "embarrassed" at the last kiss scene! Ami, well, she kisses me for like 20 minutes after and I think I know what that's really about.
Is there anything else I wanted to remember? I know there is.... I just said that outloud and Amie goes, "What? For me to clean?" I am laughing so hard right now because I have been harping on her all morning about it!

Ok, I am feeling terrible now. I called early that morning and then around lunch time but didnt leave a message and I thought I would call again but I didnt want you to think I was prying so I decided not to. I am sooo sorry I should have! I do hope you are feeling better now and if I can do something else let me know! But I will have to come get her next week to play, my Ashlyn is so excited!. P.s. my girlies loooove enchanted and it makes Stew and I laugh out loud too.

Oh, your kids are so adorable. Just put them on a plane to come see us. They could handle it by themselves, right?

Hey Kelly! It's Holly Green (Garvin) I saw Haught on one of my friends blogs and eventually found your blog. I'm glad your doing so well. I'm so excited your having your third child. I miss you doing my hair, but am so glad you get to have more time with your kids. My blog is blocked, but I'll add you to it.
