Scooby Doo, where are you?

It is a mystery worth solving.

Scooby Doo has become a favorite or more like an obsession to Nathan. I don't really care for it but he loves it so he wins the battle some times. So we found this copy at the library and brought it home only to lose it within three days. I have been searching everywhere for it.

Yesterday I had to go to the library to pick up Jane Eyre and to finally tell the librarian that we lost the beloved Scooby Doo. She talked me out of paying for it right then and said I had three more renewal periods left, so I listened to her and decided to hold off. I thought for sure this is only prolonging the inevitable and I would be back soon to pay the $20 for the video.

So today I got around to filing the stack of papers next to my desk and guess what was under a few bills... A Pup Named Scooby Doo, Volume 2!! I couldn't believe it. I vaguely remember putting it in a safe place before the Valentine's rush so we wouldn't lose it. Haha! I will always remember the Andersen home Scooby Doo mystery adventure. Next time I think I'll make a post it note of where I put things I want safe. I'm just glad I saved $20. Now we can afford a babysitter for tonight. Any takers?

Happy Valentine's Day!

Here are the valentine cards I made for my kids. I actually ran out of time and energy, so Tim had to share his Valentine with Nathan. Sorry about that Tim!

Communicating with Tim

I have a son who cannot communicate without crying and choking. He gets upset at the slightest thing and every time it is almost to the point of throwing up. It is absolutely driving me crazy! I'm not sure what to do, maybe it's a stage and he'll grow out of it. Let's hope so!

He cries when he wants me, he cries when he doesn't want me. He gets upset when he cannot find me. Should I think this is so sweet that my child actually wants me that much?

BTW: He only does this at home. He is like a perfect angel at church or in other people's homes.

Let this be a stage that doesn't last much longer!!
