What's going on here?!?!?

Last night Mitchell tells me he wants to take his showers in the of course Matty does too. They've done them in the morning a few times, but not on a regular basis!! so what am I to think?!?!? is this another sign they're getting older!! or is it they just don't like taking time out of their evening? I think I'll stick with the time thought, and not that my babies (of which half are as tall as I am) are growing up!!

But it did work out really nice this morning. Last night I told them before they did anything they needed to shower, they both got up and were showered before I got up =o) It seemed to get them going too, not too much prodding them this morning! This could be a good thing!!

Guitar Hero is on it's way!!!

This story really starts back around Christmas time. My good friend Brandi was going on and on about how Guitar Hero is and that she purchased one on ebay. When the boys ended up with around $200 in gift cards to Toys-R-Us I tried to get them to purchase it, but they wanted other things and really weren't even interested in looking at it. Flash forward to Thursday, Mitchell was with Brian when he got a fire call, so Mitchell stayed in the station with another guy who was playing...yep GH 3 so Mitchell started playing and playing and playing!! for an hour. Now it's all he wants!! Yep I'm pulling my hair out now. I was reading the message board at Two Spotted Dogs this morning and Stephanie was talking about playing last night. So light bulb moment!! I logged into ebay and found an awesome deal (at least I thought it was so please if you don't think it is just keep it to yourself LOL) getting GH 2 & 3 2-guitars a regular controller and 2 other games!! with less then 2 minutes left! so I snagged it up knowing that the 15 other bidders are going to be upset with me LOL The boys are super excited and know they have to purge some massive amounts of stuff before I'll let them play!! Now for me to list massive amounts of stuff on ebay to make up for this major non-bugeted expense!!! Dave Ramsey would not be happy with me!! I promise to start saving now for the Aerosmith edition that's coming out soon!!
