I wanted a I pod , SO when I got pregnant with Grant, Joe bought me a shuffle. I loved it. Used it all the time. No problems.. The Kids thought I needed a Nano instead, So for My BdayJoshie sent be a Really beautiful blue Nano. I was shocked and thrilled! So I tried to install it.. It wasn't in English..lol .. After a slur of not so nice and pretty words I turned the job over to dear Joe. After a couple of days he got it put back to English! (Yeah Joe!) ok so Now its in English, I need to add music to it, A new program must be downloaded .. After a few failed attempts I bite my tongueand ask Joe to step in again.. The next morning My Ipod Is Ready for me all loaded and programed. (Joe is my hero).. I am very excited by now. so i start listening to the music.. However I soon realize that its all Joe's music, Pink Floyd,Beatles,AC DC, Jimmy Buffet....GRRRRR (naughty Joe) The I-pod sat for a couple of weeks.. Then My friend Jodi Got One and a docking station for her anniversary, But she didn't have any music to down load, so I let her borrow mine. Slowly but surely she has completely figured out all the feature and workings of the evil little device!! (where did I go wrong) She even had added new music I like to mine..lolOk now to wrap up this part of the story. My Daughter Says Hey Mom I filled my memory stick with music for you for your I pod. It took me 2 days to figure out how to slide out the connection piece to plug it into the computer...... I'm planning on downloading the music next year.
I have been playing games all day, some were board games others were childrens make believe games, I totally kicked butt at pool tonight, (ok I won By 1) And of course there was the never ending round of phase 10, All were fun But the most challenging was the pretend play with the kids. Sometimes i feel Like Im starting to forget the magic in childhood. I forget that if you pretend it hard enough it will be real to you. I love the giggles and laughs the kids sound off with. The way a smile can make your whole world melt. My children are magic , They believe good outweighs the evil, there is a castle waiting around the corner, That Nobody Means to hurt your feelings its always a accident. That Pop-cycles and Kisses and ice cream can make everything better. My son learned tonight how to give kisses with the sounds and all. He is so proud of himself, and Of course I am too! Now the Kissing games are coming.. Now My memories of the older kids learning new games are flooding my head, fish kisses,Butterfly kisses, Nosey nosey eskimosie. Sams favorite was of course Butterfly kisses, Maddies started of with sloppy puppy kisses , But nosey nosey was her favorite. Not sure about Joshie, He was way past that stage when we got him. I just know My little man Is very excited to have figured it out. oxox K
