I am totally devastated because I have NEVER left Kendall for more than a few hours since she has been born. When Jaxon was born, I stayed home for the first nine months and then went back to work part time and my mom watched him the two days a week I worked. I have loved being home with my babies and now my heart is breaking because I have to leave them every day. My mom will watch them Mondays and Tuesdays and Jason will have to be Mr. Mom the rest of the week. I know things could be a lot worse, so I am trying to find the positive parts in this mess. At least they will be with their Mema and Daddy. Jason will finally see how hard my job really was (and maybe he won't ask anymore, 'what did you do all day?') If Jason gets more work, we have joked he will have to strap Kendall to chest, put a hard hat on Jaxon and take them to the job site!
We have been praying more than ever due to this crazy economy. All around us we hear of family and friends getting layed off, seeing businesses closing and people losing their homes. I definitely took for granted the time I spent with my babies. Ever since we decided that I am going back to work, I have been putting off laundry and chores to just cuddle and play with them. I know a lot of other mommies have to leave their kids too. I just have to get through the next 7 weeks until summer vacation!

Not until Jaxon got off the toilet with his "big boy underwear" on did he go potty and poop! Needless to say, it was not fun cleaning up poop out of underwear, especially after Jaxon reached around and stuck his finger in it.

Jaxon woke up with a dry diaper so we stripped him down and after he sat on his potty chair for a looong time, he went potty in it! I see potty training in our future. Now we are off the sit on the Easter Bunny's lap...I wonder if Jaxon will freak out like he did last year and on Santa's lap?
Look at Kendall's chubby chipmunk cheeks! Her cheek is all red from Daddy's scratchy face.

In this economy, we normally wouldn't be going to Disneyland. But Jason's birthday was yesterday and he was free. Cousin Carey signed the rest of us in so we were all free! Both Jaxon and Kendall were sooo good! No fussing, whining or bad behavior. Jaxon loved every ride and Kendall got to go on everything...even Pirates of the Caribbean! The grandmas loved watching Jaxon's reaction to everything. We had a great time...and all for free!
Jason got "Happy Birthday" sung to him at lunch.
Jaxon learned how to drink out of a straw for the first time...at Disneyland of all places!
Jaxon loved the Small World!
