Another Day Waiting for a Buyer

Please shoot me if this housing market doesn't speed up at all.(Disclaimer: For any dementos out there....this is not a request.....just a figure of speech.) As most of you know we are trying to sell our house so that we can move close to Mike's work and save that avg. of $800 in gas every month and more importantly give him back that 3 hrs. commute time every day, five days a week, so that he can spend more time with the boys. He loves to drive, but now it has become hard on him because he knows he is missing out on so much. Housing prices in the area are very cheap compared to where we are and so we can move from condo to house and pay some massive bills off. Not that we will be that well off....med school bills are calling and forebearance doesn't last forever....think extra house payment....ouch!

But, it is heartbreaking to hear Benny and Sebby ask for Dada all day and to have to repeat, "He is at work. He won't be home until an hour after Everybody Loves Raymond is over, at least." And yes, for some reason my boys have taken to that show and laugh throughout the whole thing. It does give me a break from the Disney Channel shows that we watch everyday (I could kill the Doodlebops) and the Disney movie Cars. Today I tried to change up the movie as I couldn't stand Cars or Little Einsteins one more time and tried to slip in An American Tail. No way! Cars wins again. You would think that 16 month old kids wouldn't have a preference...darn! I can't wait until I can turn them into horror movie fanactics like myself. I have always said that they would make the cutest Freddy Kruegers for their first Halloween. It was kinda funny because I really want to see the Halloween remake, but have no one to watch the boys. My sis suggested we take the boys like all those other delinquent parents out there. I couldn't do it. When I taught K-2, I was always shocked that those kids had seen Freddy v. Jason. Now, I am counting the days until they are an appropriate age. Horrible I know. Especially since they already love to watch racing with their Daddy and so I am always outvoted. I see The Fast and the Furious marathons in my future....I will be longing for the Doodlebops!

The cute thing for the day- My beautiful baby boys were kissing eachother on the lips, making a little sucking, smacking noise and giggling. They usually coexist, but don't really relate to eachother, other than poking, scratching, pinching, biting, stealing toys or stealing food/sippie cups. (play dates anyone?) This was the first time I saw them loving on eachother. It is true that they aren't always whomping on eachother. They do get quite excited when they discover the other one's nipple or belly button, but when they then try to steal it, it does become a fight. My silly boys. Ben did get quite distraught today because when Seb was showing off his own belly button and Ben was wearing a onesie and couldn't find his. It must have run away for the day....no fair.

Okay, that is enough sharing for today.

Yep we watch the same Disney Channel. The Doodlebops are the weirdest. I will kill them with you. Shhhh!
