So just FYI we were very excited about the American Idol out come. I wanted David Cook to win and when he did I screamed and jumped up and did a cheer leader kick. For those of you that don't know, that is what I do when I get excited.....the cheer leader kick.....I think it is hillarious and I usually get the EYE ROLL from Josh. He rolls his eyes at me a lot. So last night I was finishing up about 90 loads of laundry and Josh and I were foldog them and putting them away when Drew spotted the black phone in our room. For those of you that don't know Grandpa Jack had a rotery phone and it is in our room. So Drew picks it up and says, "Hewo, Dabid Cook, I love you singing." It was so cute. We started laughing so hard, it was a close peeing your pant call. In other words we almost peed our pants. So we have found that the days of watching inapropriate shows around Drew are over. He will say, "Yook (look)at dat Yady(lady), she is bleeding blood on the floor." So unless I want to raise a serial killer I better not watch the Law and Order in front of him anymore. There are times when I can get him down stairs to play, but he is convinced that there is monsters down there. He also thinks that there is a monster in his room. I told him just to talk to the monster and see what he was doing. But Drew said, "dat monster won't talk to me mom, I not know what his problem is." He has also started this thing of when he is talking to me or Josh and we don't answer him, he yells "hey talk to me". He is so smart he is recognizing numbers and letters. His pre-school with GrammaNeta is really helping him. He calls my mom Gramma and Josh's mom GrammaNeta. It is one word. He is funny. He likes to be naked, like all other children. CRAZY! Josh is doing really well with his business and he is really happy. So everything is great with us. We are getting ready to go back to school in June for a week. Love you all. Deidra

So I have discovered that being a mom is one of the hardest and easiest jobs on earth. This is my little boy 5 days after he was born. He looks like an angel sent to me. I loved the first year and a half of his life. He was such a good baby, happy and healthy and just a pleasure...........so then.....the attitude started and it hasn't gone away and to be honest I am sure that it will now. So that is the hard part about mother hood for me is now my kisses are yuky! WHAT! I know, right! RUDE! And he wants DAD to do everything with him, get up with him when he is sick, play with him. It kinda breaks my heart a little everyday. Everyone says have another one, and I say WHAT, the fist one doesn't even like me. But oh, I love that little boy. My hope is that someday I can be as good of a mom as my mom. She is everything that I could ever hope to be. Drew is a pretty funny kid, he puts everyone in time out when they are naughty. He talks alot and possibly maybe to much sometimes. So he will be 3 in August and I can't believe it. My baby is growing up so fast. So this is him last summer catching his first fish. CRAZY! Anway I guess I better get going. Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there!
