BRP First Birthday

I can't believe how quickly this last year has flown by. Forget the fact that I'm getting old - my babies are getting old. Andrew is heading off to middle school and Ben is walking like a champ. Time is flying.

On a side note - I hired a personal trainer to get my butt in shape. It's been 4 weeks now and I am feeling every year of my age. I never thought it would be this hard to keep up. I'm going for an hour at a time, 5 days a week. I know it will be all worth it though.

I know I've been away for a while but my life has been crazy busy these last couple of months. A new baby, a new job, being out of shape from the new baby, etc. Not that I'm complaining mind you...I'm as happy as can be. I mean - just look at the adorable baby. =)
I was thinking the other day about my experience in the hospital after having Ben. It was time to leave and they sent up some pimply faced girl, who had clearly been a volunteer for all of about 14 seconds, to take us down to the car. Miguel had already gone down to pull the car around and we were all eager to leave. The baby was dressed and sitting in his car seat and I hoped in the wheelchair. The pimply faced girl then began to push me out into the hall towards the elevator. I, of course, quickly reminded her that I was going to be needing my baby. She giggled a little, apologized, and handed me my baby. On our way! We rolled out to the elevator and sat in front of it waiting. At this point I thought it wise to remind the young lady that we should probably press the down button to speed things along. The doors opened and in we went. The girl then performed a hasty 9 point turn to get the baby and I turned towards the closing doors. Closing doors that caught my feet....twice...until I finally asked the girl to move me a back a little. At this point I just needed a distraction so I tried a little small talk. Since I had been in the hospital for 3 days, I decided to ask her about the weather. She responded by telling me she didn't know what the weather was like because she hadn't been outside yet. I then asked her if she hadn't been outside on her way to work today. She finally admitted that she had indeed been outside, however she was unable to remember what the weather was like. This is the point at which I got out of the wheelchair. I think the poor thing was so shocked that I got up that she couldn't even protest. I suppose I was lucky to get out at all! Poor thing. Hopefully she's improved since then....=)

Pi-ti-ful. Poor little Ben with a temperature of 103. At least he has big brother.

Where's the trust?

Yesterday I picked up Ben from the child care facility in the building where I work - and as I was leaving a young boy and his father were coming in the fron t door. As soon as the boy looked down the hallway at the rows of doors, he froze and his eyes got as big as saucers. The following conversation then took place:

Boy: "I don't want to go to the doctors!"
Dad (laughing): "This isn't the doctors office. "
Boy: "Yes it is. You're trying to trick me."
Dad: (laughing and speechless)

I was cracking up dude. Where's the trust? Sheesh.

What the hell is going on? Mel Gibson has a drinking problem and a potty mouth. What's next? Cats and dogs flying? I feel like my whole world is out of whack. I was reading through the police report and actually laughing out loud. The officer was actually quoting Gibson. Some of the best were, "I own Malibu" and "I'm going to f@ck you". Okay Mel. It sounded like the officer was giving him every consideration including attempting to let Gibson in the car without handcuffing him. Unfortunately, this still wasn't acceptable and Mel tried to run. Sigh. You can check out the whole report here.
