Big brown eyes looking at me...

In the cutest little voice while rubbing my belly-
Carson says, Mommy, when is the baby going to come out?
Me: Soon Omie (That's what I call him)
Carson: So you will go to the hospital and they will take your baby out?
Me: That's right!
Carson: I can not wait.

He melts my heart :)

will my love be different...

I have a few questions that I have pondered over the last seven months. I have researched, asked professionals and prayed. Below is a list of questions I have- can you help me from either your experience and/or knowledge?

1. Will my love for the baby be "different" from the love I have for Carson?
2. Will I still view Carson the same way?
3. Will there be a "different" type of bonding with the baby?

Kindergarten registration?! I can not believe it-
My sweet little boy is going to kindergarten this year. OMG! His current teachers feel he is acamdically ready however he still has some maturing to do. :) Carson will be a young 5 year old as his birthday is 9/6/06. Do I send him or hold him back for one year?

back on the market

We took our house off the market in September due to the lack of buyers in the area. However we have decided to put the house back on the market under "for sale by owner" in April. We are truly praying our house will sell as we are really out growing it.
I bought Carson a Toshiba net book a few months ago. He is amazing on the computer. He loves to play PBS kids at night while I am doing my homework for graduate school. I love to watch his little fingers navigate the keyboard.

can you handle it and woes

Its been really hard for me in life to let God fight my battles as I have "always" wanted to be in control. However for the past x months I have given something over to the Lord and asked him to handle it (which has been difficult for me). There were plenty of times where I could have gone running to others and started gossiping about how "one" was treating me or trying to sabotage me as a person/ professional. However, ever time I started an email, dialing a phone number or sitting cross for an individual that I could share how I was feeling the Lord reminded me " you told me to handle it." I would reply in a short prayer, "I know, Lord." Well, everything happens in his timing and he took care of it to the point I asked him to ease up and show a little mercy. I was reminded by a friend that the Lord does not like liars, people who put others down, or those that hurt his children to make themselves look better.
The woes of a 4 1/2 year old boy:
- He thinks he is a superhero.
- My furniture becomes a jumping bag.
- He always wants to use my cell phone to play games or call Best or MomMom.
- He likes to talk back and always wants the final word.
- His hands and feet become weapons when he gets mad.
- He wants and thinks he is a doctor to our dog Kyndel.
- He knows what he wants and there is NO way around it.
- If you kiss him- he wipes it off and says ew girl lips.
- He wants to play football and baseball in the house.
- There are hundreds of match box cars, action figures and lego's in every room, every crevice and every corner of the house.
- He does not understand the word no or stop.
- His finger nails are dirty every time he comes back for the horse stable as he is digging for worms.
- He runs around in his batman and superman costume all day long.
