Mean Mean Man!

Today has been such a long day! I had to take my grandma around to run some errands. I knew my plates were a month expired but I have had NO time to get it taken care of. Not to mention I have a newborn and the last place I want to take him is the DMV.
It all started with my grumpy attitude this morning. It had been a long night and I was not in the mood to take my grandma to run her errands ( I love you grandma!). First on the list was taking her to a coin shop downtown. When we got there I paid for the parking and went in with her. When I looked out the window I noticed a cop standing next to my car and giving me a ticket. I ran out as fast as I could with my 2 year old and newborn in tow.
T-" Whats the problem officer"
Parking ticket ass- "Your plates are expired"
T- " I am so sorry. I just had a baby and have not had time to go to the DMV. Can you give me a warning and I will make sure my husband takes it in first thing tomorrow?"
PTA_ " No it is too expired."
T- "It is only a month expired. And I had a baby when it did. Please just give me a warning"
PTA"NO. IT is your fault for not taking care of it." he was very short and very rude!
T- "fine. Emmy come on lets go. He is a mean mean man" He was standing next to me as I said this and gave him a dirty look. He walked away and I was very upset. After getting the kids buckled and walking around to my door I don't know what came over me. I yelled as loud as i could " YOU ARE A PRICK!"
I am sure Emmy herd it even though her door was shut and I felt my heart melt. It was a bad parenting moment and I know it! I must say I don't know any cop who would be so mean to give a young mother with a 2 year old, newborn and grandmother a ticket instead of a warning. It was only a month expired and he was so mean! I have been upset about the whole situation all day!

Our life lately

We love date night!

Our pumpkins this year.

Cute little butterfly and Pea in a pod
Emmy playing. I thought this picture was funny!
Little Jackson

My adorable kids!!!
Our life has been pretty mellow lately. We are finally in our daily routine and enjoying each other.
Halloween was a blast. We took Emmy and Jackson trick or treating, had homemade chicken noodle soup,wastle, and watched scary shows. We decided to stay low key this year and just stay at home. It was so nice to just enjoy Halloween and not have to worry about family.
Emmy is doing great! She is learning more and saying funnier things everyday. Today she noticed her trick or treating bag was empty and said " Mom oh no! My candy is gone! I need to get in my buderfry (butterfly) costume and get more!" She is loving her dance class and LOVES painting lately.
Jackson is getting HUGE!!! I cant believe he is 8 weeks and 12 pounds!!! He smiles and likes to coo at things. He has been such a wonderful addition to our family!
Matt worked from home on Thursday last week and took Friday off. It was so nice to have him home with us and just enjoy each other! We got our Christmas lights up, finished the H1N1 flu vaccine for Emmy and Matt (I got it a month ago with Emmy), Played at home, went to the ballet with my grandpa and had fun!!!
I know this is a boring post but this is our life lately. We are enjoying every moment with the kids and loving life.
