Uh Oh Tuesday and Aunt Betty Soap!

This has been a morning! I can already tell Houston is going to be somewhat like his Uncle Randle, pray for him please! lol
Houston and Hannah have been up since about 4am...again. We thought it would be smart to just let them hang out btwn us in bed. Not so smart, but they did force us to start our day pretty early. The house looks as if I'm getting nothing done...I feel like I'm getting tons done. Maybe by this afternoon I'll see results. I have lots to unpack.
On to Houston being wild-I walked into the dinning room and there sat Houston on the floor drawing all over the floor with sidewalk chalk! Once again, I had to explain this is for outside use only! And where he got it, I do not know. I decided about 8 this morning after washing 3 loads of clothes, doing dishes, and eating and feeding the kids breakfast it was time to start cleaning the kids rooms. I was cleaning the windows in the boy's room and had to come back to the kitchen for something. I was about to go back to cleaning when Hannah came to me saying, "Bubba is spraying, come see". I had no clue what that meant. He was spraying Clorox ALL OVER his new sheets!!! I made the mistake of leaving the spray on the floor..I think. Who knows bc he is one that would have climbed a mountain to get into something. So, after a good talking to and time out he said he knew that was a "no-no". He also wrote all over the dinning room floor with sidewalk chalk...which I could clean..but that's not ok!! He takes his plastic golf club and uses it as a bat! This is going to be a long, hard road raising Houston...oh boy.
He LOVES sports and I'm ready to let him dive into a sport full force. I'm ready for him to be able to play somewhere. He already walks around dribbling the basketball, he makes makes the basket almost every time he shoots. He stopped using his baseball T, now we have to throw him the ball and he swings. He's getting better each day. But his big thing is throwing the ball...with in reason he can throw a baseball anywhere you tell him to....and he's left handed. Maybe he'll make it big and I can travel around watching him play somewhere....high hopes:)
Now, the girls....such Princesses. They're doing great with potty training, loving their new space, and boy do they help clean up. They also help me a lot more with Drew now. They love playing with there baby dolls like I used to...when I was little, lol. They stroll around their babies, put things in their purses...they make up all these rules for their babies too. Too funny, I don't know where they get it. When I was little my Grandmother was making dinner and wouldn't let me have the cheese I kept asking for. It was a block of mild cheddar cheese that I called "Grandmother cheese"...she was the only person I knew that had cheese like that. So, I got pretty smart on her! I asked her to play house with me and of course she did whatever I wanted!! I was the first grandchild. I walked right up to her and said, "OK, I'll be the Mommy and you be the Baby"...Grandmother agreed...then I said, "Now let's go get some cheese" LOL. This is the kind of stuff my girls are doing to me!
Drew is being an Angel today...as always. He is a little fussy bc he's getting a top tooth in....yay Drew. He's being such a good sport about it.
Oh, about the soap....Last night I opened a new box of soap before bathing Hannah and Hollise. I turned around and Hannah said, "OH, THAT'S AUNT BETTY SOAP!!!!". She was more than excited. A few months ago we had eaten lunch at Aunt Betty's and she gave each of them this Johnson and Johnson soap that is in a little green packet. I think it's called soap buddy...not sure. Anyway, they love this soap bc I don't have to use a wash cloth...which apparently makes them feel like they're getting CLEAN! So that's not cool, but Aunt Betty soap is cool!
