Not so much fun..

So I spent last night doing laundry.. you ask why? well my boy is sick, he's caught the flu bug. He was sick all night, I felt so bad for him.. i would just get him all cleaned up in clean clothes and all of that and then he would get all sick again all over himself (and me too) :) joys of motherhood :) but the funny thing is that if you would come over and see my little boy, you'd never think he's sick (except for the funny smell coming from his room) he's all smiles and talking and still crawling and going everywhere.. my little trooper.. hopefully he's done with it for the winter now.. anyway hope you all are enjoying your days (who ever is reading this). Now I gotta go finish laundry :)

Opportunity or not??

Yesterday as I went with Kevin to the shop to send him off to work, I came across an opportunity or something like that.. There is a position available for Trinidad, it's the perfect job, as receptionist, perfect hours, good pay, it's hard to resist. If I didn't have a child I would be there in a second, but I do have Tristian... the ultimate question.. should I go back to work?? It's a monday to friday, 8-4:30, 15$/hour and the type of work I enjoy.. only thing is IF i found a daycare I'd only get to spend from 5pm to about 8-8:30 pm with my son (3 hours!!).. now I have always been the person to say 'why have kids if you are gonna let someone else raise them?', but now it's oh so tempting.. and the other thing is, it just seems that the timing is off.. the position starts Dec.1 we are moving on Dec. 18 and I have a lot of things that I need to do (packing/cleaning) and Kevin's not gonna be back here until it's time to move. So I have my work cut out for me.. I am confused and unsure what to do.. but I am thinking that maybe this is not my time (since the timing is off) and maybe there is something else even more 'perfect' that will come my way.. what do you think?

My little man on the move..

Well Kevin has gone back to work again.. I had him home for two weeks (which was a treat) and he was working from 8-5 so that means he still gets a bit of a paycheck (instead of none when he has days off).. plus we remained sain in this house because he wasn't sitting around all day for two weeks!! (when that happens i just want to kick him out for a few hours so i can get some stuff done :) So last night was tough, but the neighbor boy came over to play computer games and a girlfriend of mine came to visit - so the evening past quickly.. and since all of Kevin's suitcases were out of the living room I was able to clean it up so my little man could move around on the floor again :) And boy did he move..

Mom I have no time to look at your camera, I'm busy... :) Well I am wishing I could be out in Saskatchewan right about now, I would have liked to catch up to all of you that are out there at Alumni, but I guess that's not always possible..

By the way I have a question for you Bloggers out there.. should I change over to that new version or not? I do not have a google account, just a blogger one. Is it really better?

TJ's been busy...

My little boy has been busy learning to do new things :) This past week he has surprised us and learned how to sit up by himself.. this in turn gives him the opportunity to learn a few other things.. one day I walked into TJ's room and found him like this..

Here are some other priceless shots of Tristian..

It's CCCold outside :)

So after like 2 feet of snow (at least) in a week or so, it decided to get cold out. We had a chilly -8 for the last while, but this morning it went down to -22 C ! I guess we better get used to it since that's the average temperature during the winter here (if not colder). My little boy figures that no winter gear will stop him from playing with his toys :) The yellow mittens were a baby gift when TJ was born, they are the cute mittens on a string :)

A Special Event this past October

In the beginning of October I went home to La Crete with Tristian and a friend of mine that had just had her baby. I made it a special priority that me, my mom and my Grandma go to visit a special man.. I have always known him as Great-Grandpa Peters.. I have never really gotten to know my Great Grandpa Peters as he has many Great-Grandchildren, but now there is a special connection - I gave birth to his very first Great-Great-Grandchild.. Tristian! I think it is amazing and I hope that one day Tristian will also realize how special these next few pictures are... by the way my Great Grandpa is 91 years old from this summer..

My Great Grandpa commented several times about Tristian's overalls, that they make them so small, and they look just like the real thing (they have that same little loop where my Great Grandpa would have put his hammer when he was working). He just couldn't get over that :)
