I just remembered that I have this blog that I am suppose to be writing in and realized that I had better get to it!
WAY TOO MUCH has been going on to even begin sharing so I won't even try! I will, however; share a little about the last week or so. My beautiful princess twins started VPK last Monday and I was so ready for them to start school and give mommy a three hour break each day! There was only one problem with that though...when I dropped them off in their classroom, took pictures, videoed, and gave kisses good-bye...I walked out and went into the parent meeting that was being held in the Chapel. Everything was fine until Ms. Lynn shared about a cute story where the mommy kisses the little girls hand before she goes to school and the girl then closes her hand and holds it to her heart, and if she needed some of her mommy's love during the day in school, all the little girl had to do is open up her hand and kiss it to kiss her mommy. Well.....you guessed it.....I LOST it!!!! I was crying and not quietly...it was sobbing!!!! My sweet husband looked at me like I was crazy and said "what the heck is wrong with you?" I couldn't stop! I contained myself a little until I got outside, looked in their classroom and began to cry again! I cried all the way thru the parking lot and to my car....calmed down for a minute and sat in the car...only to again begin crying hysterically!!! My husband by now thinks that I am totally insane! We went home and...I made his lunch, straightened up the house a little bit, played on the computer, and sat in their room....while crying the ENTIRE time! It was terrible! What is wrong with me? What did I do? I felt like I abandoned my girls and I made a huge mistake! I felt the need to go pick them up, bring them home and FORGET about school! I was convinced that I will just homeschool them FOREVER!!! I couldn't wait for them to come home and I was the second person in the car pick up line to get my babies! Tuesday was a little better....I watched them in their classroom for a few minutes...Tim Suggs (his son, Timmy is in their class) asked if I needed a tissue! Ha Ha very funny! I was okay as long as I didn't think about it. Wednesday came along and I got my Dunkin Donuts Iced Coffee after I dropped them off and went home to work on scrapbooks for 3 hours! From then on....that 3 hour block of free time that I have without my girls goes by way too fast! :) For Kindergarten, the school days are longer, right? :)

We came back from Joshua's birthday party at the park on Saturday afternoon where the girls had a blast!!! They rode the carousel, played in the museum, played games, beat up a SpongeBob pinata, played little games, ate cake, got little goody bags and received Play Doh!! I finished with the Play Doh because it was the culprit!
My mom was cooking, I was sitting with ice on my back and the girls were playing quietly on the back porch area. I should have know something was up when they were too quiet! Next I hear, "It's Magic.....look Mari I'm doing Magic" .....Mari giggles. "Oh yeah Shani, it's magic....where did it go?" I decided to get up and see what exactly was the "magic". I go outside and ask..."what are you girls doing?"...Mari started to inform me that Shani is doing magic and made the play doh disappear....I said, "Really, where did it go Shani?' I did magic with the play doh and put it in my ear.....my reaction......WHAT??????? I checked it out, and sure enough there was a big chunk of orange play doh in Shani's ear. I told my mom to watch her so she didn't shove it in any further, while I got the tweezers. I ran back, and while my mom held her down, I pulled out 2 big chunks of play doh that were pushed into her ear!!!! Oh my gosh, this CHILD!!!
For those of you who know already....Shani is my "Disaster Daisy". In the first 3 and half years of her life she has, been to the hospital or doctor for the following drama:
1. A cyst removed from the back of her head, left her with a nasty stitch mark.
2. X-rays for a hip problem, everything is okay they said.
3. X-rays on her foot because she tried to close the door in the garage that had a dumbell propping it open and that 25lb. dumbell fell over on her big toe! She crawled around on the floor for almost a week!
4. A nasty scar on her ear from falling off the chair and hitting the corner of the wall unit.
5, Bite marks on her lips from my mom's little 3 pound dog because Shani wanted to kiss her!
6. A huge knot on her head when she fell off the stage at VBS while her Titi Brandi & Carla were sitting right next to her!
7. X-rays to find her earring that she swallowed in which I had to search through her poop for almost a week to make sure it came out.
Now when I changed Shani's name to "Shani Rae Flores" to name her as close as possible to my best friend, Shelli Rae Morris, I didn't think it would include her clumsy mishaps as well...I was obviously wrong and she is....
just like her Auntie Shelli.

Here are Mari and Shani on their first official day of preschool at home with mommy as their teacher! The second day of school Shani did "not want it" and Mari couldn't wait for more!! When we finger-painted...Shani said, "Hey, What happened to my brown fingers?" The girls may be twins but they are so very DIFFERENT from each other! With the finger-painting, Mari was very careful to not get paint everywhere and Shani...well you see what she did!
okay...I have absolutely NO idea what I am doing with this blog..I have to figure this out and stop forgetting my password! I swore that I would never be a blogger or have a myspace page....yet I have been persuaded and sucked into this nonsense that I do NOT have the time to maintain...but I'm gonna give it a shot anyway! :) Hope you enjoy it!
