Yes, I know...

it has been weeks since I have posted.


And I am not getting on here tonight to type something awesome. Nope. Just to apologize. Sorry you have come here and there is nothing new. Mike, as most of you know, is in Little Rock still. Should be back home this weekend.

I'm so glad.

Jack and Ty are so glad.

You should all be so glad, because: Mike said that he misses the blog when I don't put anything on it and when he gets home we are going to make time for me to get on here and be funny.

And. I've decided that I am going to start doing punctuation my way. I'm going to toss out most of what Mrs. Greiner taught me all through high school and write like I'm thinking. If my brain stops mid sentence, then I will put a period before the thought is complete. It will look. Sort of. Like that. If it is too hard to follow, give me some feedback and I'll consider going back to using standard grammatical rules.

Tonight I'm feeling a little bit ornery. I had to look that word up to spell it and I had no idea it started with an "o" not an "a". Huh. Still looks weird.

Jack, I think, just turned 15. He's been speaking ugly to me. He has this aggression or rebellion or something inside him that comes out at all the wrong times. He'll be walking by Ty and stick his arm out to close line him, for no reason. I'll ask him something and this deep (as deep as a three-year-old can muster) voice growls at me "Yes, 'MAM!!!"

Excuse me?

The other day Ty was sitting on the floor in front of him, Jack was in a chair, and Jack kicked him in the back. I don't think he knew why he did it.

What do I do with this?

I know, I've been doing the same thing I normally do for disobedience, but it doesn't seem to make any difference in the behavior of this wild man.

Maybe it's just me. I've been a little on-edge the last 3 weeks or so.

I'm not crazy, I'm pregnant.

Yes, we're excited. I'm a little overwhelmed right now with my two wild boys at home. And Ty? Ty is my favorite age: 18-24 months. He's sweet. Come January, a two-year-old will replace my sweet Ty. Then what? Then I will have a 3 year old and a 2 year old and be 4 months pregnant.

Lord help me!

What have I done.

Good news. Mike will be here. (maybe)

I'm on the last 48 hours of Mike's 6 weeks of training in Arkansas, and going a tad crazy. Talk to me next week and I'll sound normal again. I'll be thrilled about having another little one on the way and my boys will once again be sweet and my man will be here taking care of things.

Aren't you glad men don't get emotional like women? I AM.

I don't think I could handle living with someone as nuts as me. And! Imagine if we were both hormonal at the same time! The divorce rate in America would quadruple.

One of my favorite things about Mike is his stability.

So.. to recap... I'm pregnant. (Not exactly the way I thought I would announce it, but ya know.)
Mike will be home soon and the blog will get updated more frequently.

Pretty good for not posting tonight.

Congratulations, Becca and Mike! I am happy for you and will be praying for everything you wrote about. I don't have boys, but I can say that Jack really will be 15 in the blink of an eye. Enjoy the sweet times to the fullest. It all goes by too fast. Thanks for sharing your great news.
Miss you!

Congratulations!!!! Let me know how the three kiddos thing goes. I love reading your blog and I'm glad your back at it!

I KNEW IT!!!! Why else would you call me for Dr. Purpura's info!!! I just never got around to asking you about it.

Congrats. And no worries, 3 and 2 and pregnant is a wonderful thing -- simply because it makes you realize how desperately you need God and the peace that passes all understanding!

YAY! YAY! YAY! YAY!!!!! I am so excited you have another precious addition to your family! Oh and as for Jack, Ella went through about a month + of that exact thing, just being mean and hard to deal with. Just when I was about to loose hope that I would ever see my sweet little miss again, she was back to normal. I think God lets them have bad spells so we will appreciate them more when they are good.
I love you girl, and I'm so excited for you all!
