Hello now from California. I'll be here for the next 2 weeks and then back to England. My parents have dsl so I might actually be able to get on the computer. I was either faced with my mother-in-laws dial up or my brother-in-laws laptop. The laptop was quicker but anytime there was a screen with a pop-up - like looking at blog comments the whole thing would freeze up. Oh, I am so spoiled at home with all of my internet luxuries.
We've had 2 birthdays in the last week and a 1/2 so I now have a 10 year old and an 8 year old. I don't know what I was thinking having Jordan in February. Okay, yes I do - the heat. But do you KNOW how hard it is for a 5 year old girl to sit there and watch BOTH brothers get presents and you get nothing? Of course she complained and cried and acted altogether miserable. Then to top it off I totally encouraged her behavior - I am a bad mom. My mom bought her roller blades and asked if she should bring them in when Jared had his party since Jackson was also getting a skateboard from my mom. I said "no just wait until she complains and cries then take her outside and give her the skates." We completely rewarded her behavior and I didn't even think about it until it was all done. Oh well - it was Grandma that did the spoiling not me, right?
Okay - off to many adventures here in California (Orange County if you're wondering) and I'll try to keep you better updated. I might even get a chance to READ someone elses blog now and then.
