Magic monster spray, The Mommy Store and other things I want to remember

As much as I complain about my kids driving me crazy all the time, they really are just the cutest kids ever!

The girls have been afraid of "monsters" lately. I remember Ryan going through this phase so we've had to break out the "Magic Monster Spray" aka Febreeze. A few quick squirts and no more monsters. Of course, Ryan needs in on the action just because. They have really fresh smelling rooms now. :)

There have been occasions when Ryan is not so happy with me that he says he wants to go to the "Mommy Store" to get a new mommy. The first time he said that I was totally taken aback. Now it's morphed into something cuter. He has at times asked me about where he was at and usually it's been before he was born, like my wedding day. He sees the pictures and asks, "Where was I?" I had to really stop and think about this. I finally settled on "The Baby Store". He was there with all the other babies waiting for his mommy to come and pick him out. I came to the store and picked him because he was the cutest and I loved him. He gets a big grin on his face. Then he says he went to the Mommy Store and picked me because he loved me. Makes me smile every time I think about it.

Molly has turned into quite the little mommy. She is obsessed with babies. She sees them and wants to hold them or push their stroller. She has two dolls that MUST go everywhere she goes. This morning Kevin went in to get them and Molly was naked. She had put her pj's on her baby because "baby was cold".

Kate has finally mastered the art of jumping. She has been trying for a while. And while she was kind of jumping it really wasn't. Now she can climb the chairs and stairs just like R&M and JUMP! She is so darn proud of herself. Kate refers to herself as "The Little One". She is such a pipsqueak but she definitely makes up for her small size with attitude.

I am working on getting all the things crossed off my TO DO list before next Thursday. I have to be at the hospital at 6AM. Surgery is at 8AM. I will be SO glad when it's over. My MOMS Club friends have once again been so good to me. I received an email today with a schedule of meals that will be delivered over the next few weeks. I really don't know what I would have done without them these past 3 years.
