Ryan's thoughts

 So anyone that knows my little Ryan knows that he is a very serious kid, its sometimes hard to joke around with him because he takes everything so serious. So a couple example from the last couple days are when we were in the car and I had said something about Alyssa not having a boyfriend anymore and he stops me and says wait she still has one and Alyssa says um no I don't and he says I think we would all know if they broke up because she would of had mom stock up on all kinds of ice-cream and she would be watching sappy girl movies in her p.j's, crying and eating ice-cream out of the tub. I then asked why would he think such a thing and he said well that's what they do on T.V! Well my little Ryan really in truly thought that's what all girls did when they break up with someone, and I had to convince him not all girls do that.
"I'm not sure I have him convinced of it yet."

 Another example of his random thoughts is when we were eating chicken and Kevin asked Joe he wanted a wing and Ryan said why would you even ask him something like that, it sounds so gross and of course my wonderful husband and kids had to go in to detail why he would call it a wing "I wont go in to those details being they were quite disgusting". He was so mortified to find out that his favorite food was really a chicken at one time. When we asked what he thought it was he said I'm not really sure maybe something like a fruit but not that it was a real chicken. I then asked why would it be called chicken then he said just a made up name, you know like you named me Ryan and your name is mom. I wonder if we will be able to convince him to eat chicken again.

Ryan's Sculpture

Today after school Ryan comes running to my car all excited with a little Chinese food box in his hand. So when he gets in the car he said he had an epic day and so of course I asked why and he hands me the box and said cause I got to bring my awesome sculpture home. So as I look at it and ask who is it suppose to be, he say me of course so I quietly giggle "so I thought" and said oh ya it is. Then he very offended like asked me what my little laugh was for, and then proceeds to say it's awesome right!?! So as any parent would do, I lied through my teeth and said it looks identical to him and how awesome it was.

It his twin, RIGHT

Buying a house! Maybe

Well after being married 15 years and moving 11 times I finally gave in to my husband and decided to buy a house and boy has it been a learning experience. First thing I didn't know was that some realtor's have you sign a contract and a lot of people I have talked too have  never heard of it either. When we sent him a letter trying to get out of the so called contract he guilted me in to staying with him and boy has it been a roller coaster with him! He is one of those know it all kinda guys and the type of guy that knows everything even when you try and tell him he's wrong he will hear nothing of it, so I have learned just go with it. I told him where I wanted to live and he showed me many houses that were about 20 minutes from my kids school and after I told him many times no to that area he continued to show houses in that area, so I had to look for myself and tell him about 15-20 houses I wanted to see.We are willing to live in a major fixer upper and don't have very many request other then we want a 4 bedroom and we want to stay in the same school district. I found a major shit hole that I seen a lot I could do with and after our realtor refusing to let us see it we decided to go behind his back ans see it, funny thing is that when we decided to put an offer on it he was right there to help us. Well after going back and forth with the owner and giving them our earnest money the owner decided to drop off the face of the earth and not talk to anyone not even his realtor and not sign the final papers so that house didn't happen and it took awhile to get our money back. Well I had given up on wanting a house and our realtor found one on accident in the neighborhood I wanted and it's a four bedrooms and  we liked it so we put our offer in and got all our wants accepted and the house never even had a chance to hit the market. Everything is still going as planed and if it goes well we will be moving in on April 15th.
