Out reading blogs today-and extremely behind, when I stumbled on Her Bad Mothers post about motherhood written in the form of a koan. (She is in my sidebar under blogs I love) No I had no idea what that meant, but it intrigues me so here goes my first ever koan:
Two sets of beautiful eyes, keeping me awake, and laughing.
Not bad if I do say so myself.
I swear its just the flash, he doesn't always look so surprised!

in other news...i need a new job. i don't often write about it here for a few reasons. i don't really have anything good to say, and i'm afraid to post other peoples health information. I've worked on the same floor for four years, every year it has gotten worse. More is being expected of us, paperwork and responsibilty. the stress and pressure is insane. It isn't being managed well, or rather i think our managers have pretty much had all their power taken away, the hospital is making decisions that noone is allowed any say on. all the nurses on our floor are talking about leaving, i'm not sure what i want to do next, and the community hospital i work at per diem is merging with the large hospital i have a postion at, so i don't want to make a move until it all goes through because then i could keep my seniority and benefits. i'm not making a move just yet, but i know it will be happening. i am just willing to wait until the right thing comes along, and i'm hoping the universe will send it to me.

as a matter of fact here is a little video of him being, well, ben that i took today...(turn on your volume)
will is doing great with potty training, we still have accidents, but he is really getting it, and the freshness seems to have fallen by the way side as well!
here is will getting comfy on the potty:
i can't believe he's gonna be 3 in a few weeks!
we are all sick, i had to work this weekend and that pretty much sucked. (the working sick part)
but i am feeling much better now, trying to decide if i will go the gym tomorrow, not so sure they want kids with colds, but other parents do it right? not sure what to do.
i have been zwaggling every day and i love it. check it out it rocks.
well i guess that's all for now, no complete thoughts today!

Everyone is looking for ways to provide for their families without over extending themselves. Everyone has kids that outgrow clothes, or toys, or baby gear. Why not share it with others instead of filling the landfill? I am so excited about this idea that I immediately invited a bunch of my friends and family as well as called them and explained it. I'm hooked!
I have always been a big fan of passing things on that we no longer need, as a matter of fact I've been known to hang on to things because no one we knew had any use for them, and I didn't want to just throw them out.
I hope this is a first step for my family (and maybe yours) to become more conscious of our enviorment and our impact on it, as well as a great way for us to make a change for the better!

so i really want to go to bed, i worked today and i'm tired! here's a little will story:
Tuesday, March 4, 2008
today was a voting day for us, so i decided to take will with me so he could experience it. trying to explain voting to a two year old was interesting-i basically told him that we lived in a country, that a country was like a family and that we were going to say who we wanted to be in charge.
that the person in charge was the president-then i made him say president. when we pulled up he said-this where vote be? when it was my turn to vote i picked him up and showed him what i was doing, i filled in my little arrow, and said see that was my vote. He said-ok, my turn! bless his little patriotic heart! (no he didn't get to vote) he got a sticker that says i voted and he has told everyone that he voted.
after voting we went to the grocery store, in the produce section i said ok lets get the baby carrots we like. he got a very concerned look on his face and said "mom i need the big boy carrots!" i was laughing out loud at that one.
oh and potty training has not been going well but yesterday he did poopies on the potty!!! his daddy has been promising him a big truck if he did it, so last night we went out the the local huge toy store and picked one out, he is sleeping with it as i write this. no poopies on the potty today though...one day at a time right?
ok time for bed and ice cream!
