Star Wars

So the boys have left for school,
and it's Nathaniel and Me time,
and what does he get out,
for us to play with?
You guessed it Star Wars action figures.
I love Star Wars!
Star Wars is one of those things that I still love.
The movies were my favorite as a kids,
and they still make the top list today.
I even like the new ones.
I have also read the books (yes I'm a dork),
and seen every episode of
Star Wars The Clone Wars.
So far I have loved every minute of it.
It's the best story ever,
and it has something for everyone.
Love, Law and order, honer, politics, war.....,
I could go on and on.
Its also very surprising to me how much of the story
the kids have picked up on.
Darien could tell you the whole star wars story
if you would sit and listen.
Zachary could tell you the names of all of the Jedi.
And Nathaniel can recanize almost
any star wars character.
My favorite Jedi would have to be Obi-won.
I have gone back and forth on this,
but now I have decided.
It was Yoda, and as much as I like Yoda,
I understand Obi more.
Though he may not be the best Jedi,
he is one of those Jedi,
that always does the right thing.
He is always obedient
(thats why they called him obi-won)
and he is very caring, a people pleaser (like me).
Yoda is more or a wise but very tricky person.
In the books it says that
Yoda would teach his Padawans by
tricking them into doing the wrong thing,
and then let them learn from their mistake.
Wow! Oh and here is another shocker
Count Dooku was Yoda's Padawan.
See it's not just Obi-won who
fails to teach morals to his students.
Obi-won has done a few
things I'll never understand.
Like in movie 3
after the lava almost killed Vader,
why didn't he finish him off then?
And why did he just let
Vader kill him in movie 4.
Yup I just don't understand it.
He was the one to finish off
General Grievous though,
and thank goodness, that guy
(or droid) was nothing but trouble.
Okay I need to stop now
or you will end up reading the
whole Star Wars story right here,
if you are still reading.
But see now you know how much I love Star Wars!
Maybe soon I'll write about who much I love Star Trek!!
Boy that would be a long one.

Finally updated

Wow, okay first off I would like to say sorry about not updating in a long time, but most of you who read this already know me, and already know what's going on in my life (for the most part). Me moved to Maryland in late May (woohoo). The drive across country was okay, but not fun. If I was to do it all over again, I would have planed more stops and taken it much slower. It was however both of ours (Jeremy and me), idea to do it as fast as possible. We are living on Fort Meade right now, and its has been pretty good, but our place feels small, and will soon feel smaller, because our 4th is on the way, and should be here the end of January (surprise, for those of you who didn't know). So we are buying a house!! Sorry for all of the big news compressed into one paragraph, but I didn't want to make this really long I just wanted to catch everyone up. Our new house will be in Glen Burnie, and should be big enough for all of us, and than some.

Darien has started the 2nd grade, and is doing very well. The only problem I'm having from him is his authority. Because he is the oldest, he thinks he on a level higher than his brothers, and he's not. He has been very bossy with them, and he has been trying to take matters into his own hands, and his brothers don't want to listen to him and they shouldn't. It has been frustrating for me, because he puts so much effort into bossing them around, and trying to talk back to Jeremy and I (I say trying, because he doesn't get away with it), and he should be using that effort to work on his hand writing.

Zachary is now in kindergarten, and is doing much better. He had a bit of a rocky start, because it takes him longer to get a routine down, then it does with his brothers. He is like me at that age, I was so easily distracted, and I needed more reminders to keep me on track. Like I said he has it now, and he is doing great.

Nathaniel is now 3 and a half (will be 4 in April). With both his older brothers in school, it's just him and me at home. He loves that. He gets to play by himself (which he loves doing, because he can play how he wants), and watch Dora (one of his favorites). On the downside, Nathaniel is one of those children that likes to test the waters (so to say), and so I have to keep a close eye on him.

As for me and this pregnancy, it's been hard, harder than my last so far. The morning sickness was stronger and longer, than any of my others, and the aches and pains started much sooner as well. On the bright side, this one is a girl! I was going to stop after this one, no matter what, but now I know I will. I'm at the point right now, that I can't wait to have this baby. I'm starting to feel like I have been pregnant forever, and boy is it time. The reality is I have more than a month to go. The past few days I am sorry to say, that my emotions have gotten the better of me, and I have been a bit grumpy. The holidays have me stressed, and have kept me up at night. That's a big thing for me, because I love my sleep and not much can keep me from it. I have already gotten gifts so its not that, it's the whole family thing. As much as I love them (and I do) it was just so much easier when we lived 3000 miles away, and didn't have to worry about who we were going to see and when. Not many seem to understand how hard it is for a 8 mo pregnant mom with 3 kids, to get everyone out and about during the holidays. Also as much as I hate to admit it, it is also partially my fault. I hate to disappoint people so most of the time I say yes, when I should have said no.

Okay so I see this has gone on long enough, so I'm going to stop now. Feel free to leave comments, and thanks for reading.
