But this week we are actually down 2 kids in the house , because My oldest daughter Haylie and Michelle are gone for the week to summer camp.  I miss them already , but its a lot calmer in the house without them here. we still have 2 kids at home , Dylan who spends all day locked in his room staring at the PS3, or gone with his friends, so he's basically a 13 yr old ghost child and our youngest Cheyanne . Now Cheyanne is our "clingy" child , has to go EVERYWHERE with mom and Dad follows us even throughout the house, never plays by herself (yeah she's THAT kid) but we're used to this so it's nothing new. I am currently reading Halo by Alexandra Adornetto,  recommended by my awesome friend Rachel, Its really good storey-wise but I  am not sure I like the writing style.

I want it to really reflect all my hard work, but in my opinion right now it looks like it was thrown together in 5 minutes. It doesn't show the hours I have searched the web, and read page after page of blog info, and tried over and over to get the right look for me (still not happy with it).

Tonight as I am making dinner she walks in, peeks in the pot and announces "I AM NOT EATING THAT... YOU RUINED IT!"   So after I bite my lip, close my eyes and count to 3 I ask her, as calmly as I can, "How did I RUIN it?" .. her reply "You put the Sauce in with the Noodles. THAT. IS. NAS-TEE. I don't like it like that!" Okay..... So I explained to her this was not spaghetti , it was like spaghetti, but not the same.... her response " I don't CARE! I am NOT eating it, so I guess I will just starve!"    can we say DRAMA QUEEN  lol
