Who wins?

I don’t know what happened while we were at work yesterday but Ben all of a sudden decided he was going to lay down the law with Twix. For the past 2 ½ weeks Twix has kind of done her own thing and not paid any attention to Ben or Reese. This whole time Ben and Reese have been ‘working things out’…as much as Joe doesn’t want to admit it I think Reese has told Ben that he’s ruling the roost. Ben must have been taking good notes because he’s taken what Reese was doing to him and has started doing it to Twix.

We were finishing dinner and Ben and Twix were in the kitchen not even near each other. Ben started meowing at her so she started growling and hissing back. Twix started to walk out of the main kitchen area but had to go past Ben to do this so in making her long way around him she ended up getting herself backed into a corner. The meowing and hissing continued and Reese came in to rescue her…he really wouldn’t do that because they just tolerate each other but alas by him coming to investigate the commotion it distracted Ben enough that Twix could slip by. As soon as Ben realized she escaped to under the table he trotted after her and kept inching his way closer. They were just a few inches apart still meowing and hissing and just as I said she’s going to whack him she did. After that she started to retreat to her favorite hiding spot behind the couch but Ben continued to follow her. We lost sight of both of them and all of a sudden heard the brawl begin behind the couch. We quickly put an end to that. I’m sure Twix can hold her own but she’s so tiny, Ben is more than twice her size!

Joe thought Ben wouldn’t let them come in and take over his house but I don’t think Ben knew what to do with other cats. Reese is 11 and Twix is 9 and I’ve had them both since they were old enough to leave their mom. They’ve had a lot of years dealing with this sibling revelry. Joe isn’t sure how old Ben is but thinks he’s around 7 so he’s had a lot of years as on only cat. They’ll eventually get each other figured out!

Mickey Mouse Birthday Party

To view items from this party or request an item visit my Welcoming Sentiments Etsy shop.

Another year has come and gone and JP is now 2.  Everyone told me it would go fast and I've noticed all along but it doesn't help slow it down at all!  That's why I love that I can be home with him so I can soak up all of these fun moments.

We have started to watch a little TV.  Sometimes I just need to get dinner cooked or something done and need his attention elsewhere.  It's life, and we shouldn't feel guilty about doing it a little.  I say that but still have that 'mom guilt' that I'm not paying attention to him.  Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is one of his favorites.  Mickey Mouse was his first unprompted 2 word phrase and Mickey Mouse House was his first unprompted 3 word phrase.  That only meant that we needed a Mickey Mouse birthday party.  This year I did do most everything for the party myself so I was happy about that.  We kept it small this year and once aga…

Growing my Etsy shop

I will slowly be adding items to my shop and will likely focus on downloadable printables.  I love crafting and hand making items for parties and things like that but I want time for that to be my own hobby and not having the only time I do it to be for 'work'.

JP has started pre-school already, I can't believe it!  It gives me a little time each day to get something done in peace.  It's just like when he used to nap but I don't have to stay home!  That may sound like I'm thrilled he's in school and part of me is.  He is so excited each day to go and comes out with a big smile saying he had fun at school today.  That makes me happy.  The first day was not good for me.  I held it together until I got back in the truck but then I cried.  Luckily I had scheduled a meeting that first day to keep my mind off of it so time passed and we were all good.  Now that I know he's happy I can be a little more excited to have some time back ;)

Monkey 1st Birthday

This post is very late but as my multitasking mind takes over I am now on my 3rd different thing that I'm doing on the computer besides what I sat down to do.

When planning his birthday party and theme I went with a general monkey theme.  We don't watch a lot of TV and really it's hard to tell what a 1 year old in really 'into'.  My cousin Beth with Beth Kruse Custom Creations designed my party printables.  I normally do this kind of thing on my own but there were just too many things going on in our lives at the time for me to add 1 more thing to my plate.  She has fabulous parties so I knew I was outsourcing to someone great!

I scoured Pinterest for food inspiration and was pretty pleased with what I found.
