Is it Tuesday???

So, I sat down to blog about my Not Me Monday.... luckily I didn't get very far when I realized it's Tuesday!
I will share 1 Not Me..... I will not be turning the big 3-0 this week!!  Nope~ not me!!
I am trying to convince Davis that I'll be 25, his Daddy isn't helping me out here.
We went to dinner last night at Sake Blue for sushi (the cooked kind for me) & some Japanese habachi grill.  YUMMO!
Thursday is my actual birthday, but Davis has t-ball practice at 6:15 & the softball team that we (we meaning, Danny) coach plays at 7.  So, it's a busy night & no time for birthday fun!!

I'm still waiting

This song became my theme during the last few months of trying to conceive.  Everytime I hear it, it brings me to tears, but also brings me comfort.  It kept me focused.  
Those of you who know me, know what a control freak I can be.  I personally like to describe myself as a 'planner'.  
It was worth the wait when we found out we were pregnant again.  But, our waiting didn't end.
We're waiting for the morning sickness to end, to find out if we're having a boy or a girl, & finally
to bring our little angel home.  
I've been working on patience for the past 5 + years, you'd think I was better at it!!  

We still don't know what we're having, but I did have my c-section scheduled yesterday.  That's a step in the right direction!!  We're scheduled for November 19.  Hopefully, we'll be out & ready for Thanksgiving!!

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
Oh, it's Monday & it's been a long time since I posted a Not Me Monday!

I did not get cracked in the head w/ a softball practice on Sunday.  If that had of happened,  I would not have sat down & cried.  NOPE...
I did not spend hours scouring the internet & crying b/c I don't want my baby to go to Kindergarten.  NO way, I'm thinking of having a party when he goes!! :)

I have not been eating spicy food & then complaining of heartburn so often that my husband is threatning to tell my OB on me.

I did not take Davis to preschool 2 days this week w/o having taken a shower first.  Of course I wouldn't do that, I'm too put together for that.

I did not sit in Tumbleweed's bathroom reciting "Ten Timid Ghosts" to Davis while he pooped.  
I didn't hear my 4 year old point to an American Flag the other day & say "That's the American Idol flag".  

Crying over Kindergarten...

As Davis' 1st year of preschool comes to a close, I'm faced w/ the fact that I only have a few months before I have to start applying to Kindergartens.  
I've been scouring the internet, talking to teachers, praying for God's guidance, & reading everthing about JCPS, Whitefield, & Christian Academy that I can find.  So far, this is what I've learned:
A. The schools aren't ranked as I'd suspected they would be.  Some were better, but most were a lot worse.

B. I cry easily.

C.  Lowe Elementary has a daily snack time.

D. Whitefield & Christian Academy is expensive.

E. I'm not as in love with Traditional Elementry schools as the rest of Jefferson County.

F. There is an event for parents at some schools (the smart ones) on the first day of Kindergarten called "Boo Hoo Breakfast".  It involves, doughnuts & Kleenex.  I will be attending!!  :)

So, we're still undecided.  I have till Febuary to get our applications for schools together.  We're not sending him to our 'resides' school or any school in that cluster.  So, we have to wait on the lottery system that JCPS claims is a chance.  I disagree.... but that's a whole other post.

I'm just having a super hard time w/ this Kindergarten thing.  I want to poke wholes in every school I look at.  I spent 30 mins complaining about Christian Academy & the $5000 + a year wasn't even in my complaint list.  When in reality, CAL is an awesome school, that Davis would be lucky to go to.

Batman & Dr Phil

A few nights ago, Davis & I were laying in his bed.  Davis called Daddy in to 'fix' his Transformer.
Davis had been looking at his Batman sticker book & was naming all the characters.  

The Riddler, 
Dr Phil, 
WAIT...... Dr Phil?  Danny & I both looked up & tried not to laugh.  I looked at his book & since the sticker had been removed from the sticker page to be placed in one of the scenes, I had no idea who it was.  Luckily, Danny knew it was Dr.  Phosphorus.  
We have a very funny kid!
