Where is he when I need him? Recently my daughter's room has got out of control with the toys laying around. Yesterday I took on the challenge to clean her room. Before I started I asked God for his help. "Dear Lord, Bless This Mess. "
Then I started. Where do I put these toys? On the bed for now. Then I thought, " What did I get myself into?" "Someone has to do it." So then I continued with trash bags ready for any broken toy. It filled semi quickly. I just hate cleaning the rooms of my kids. Where is the Toy Taker that I told them would come when they where younger? Did he retire? Where is he?
Toy Taker, HELLLLLLP!

We said our good byes a little earlier than the other family members. We were off to Wheeling WV. Many family members asked why. I told them we had a previous commitment. I didn't want to tell them that we were taking our 9 year old son to see the WWE. Like I said, the things we do for love. He has got his 7 year old sister hooked also. The look on their faces was priceless. I do have to admit that some of events are entertaining. I know I couldn't do the acro or yogo moves that some of the Diva's do. Not even when I was in my youth. Kudos to them.
Sunday we were off to Kennywood with the nieces & nephew (that we rarely see do to unfortunate circumstances). That is a story for another date & time. Thanks to my mother in law for making these memories possible. My daughter is now loving roller coasters. She rode The Phantom's Revenge for the first time & loved it. She was braver than my 13 year old niece.The night ended when we closed the park at 11pm. Gram was tired & had an hour drive home. We found out Monday morning that she didn't get home until 2 am. She had a flat tire on a dark highway with grandkids in the car. Not what she needed.

Well, reality set in last night evening when my daughter escorted my crying son in to the house. She told me that he fell off the neighbors trampoline. Once I assesed the damaged (wasn't as bad as I originally thought) I applied ice. Oh yeah, the anatomy that was injuried, the area under his left eye & bridge of nose. Now he has a nice shiner for that perfect picture. I guess I will have to invest in Photoshop.
I told the kids next time we are getting close to family picture time, I am going to wrap them both in Bubble wrap.

Today we took a trip to the post office to stop the mail & then headed out to Walmart. Last minute things to pick up, like flip-flops for my son. He is into Ironman this year & found a pair of flip-flops with Ironman on them. "Mom, can I get them?" he asked. Of course he could get them. He couldn't find a pair in his size. Why? They don't make mens shoes with Marvel super heros. This is when reality set in. My baby is growning up toooooo fast.
