Staying home with Eli

Well, yesterday we didn't have anyone to watch Eli. Mainly because I was late in asking people and that is rude of me! So, I took a day off of work so my child wouldn't be an orphan for a day. :) It was really fun, but I did miss my kids at work. I had a really good sub yesterday though so that made me happy. You may or not know this but really good subs are hard to find...

Today is the last day to vote for Eli. The website says the winner is announced tomorrow. I guess all I can do is wait! I know I'm super emotional... but, I get so teary when all of you sweet friends tell me you are voting for him! Thank you so much! Those words don't really describe the gratitude I feel! We definitely feel loved!

Eli is finally saying "mama" but
 it's not in his sweet voice he uses when he says "dadda". It's more like "MAMMA!!!!!!!" and he's screaming it because he's mad about something. great... 

Now we have a new President! well... I guess not officially until January, but you know what I mean. I am so excited to be going to that historic day! yay for me! haha...

I didn't vote for Obama but I'm sure he'll be fine. I'm more interested in our Senators and our Supreme Court. I do feel that he has a ton of weight on his shoulders for promises he won't be able to fulfill, which he alluded to in his speech, but hopefully he'll pick good people to help support him in leading the country.  It's pretty cool that his future people will be shadowing and getting ready for transition into their new roles. ...the beauty of democracy...
Y'all I have a paper and an interview due TOMORROW. This class has turned into a beating. We've already taken 3 tests which consisted of 70+ multiple choice/true false questions, 4 essays and a page long application question each! We've read the book cover to cover and now we have to do these two things. I don't like it when my kids question my syllabus but I'm now doing that to her... is that called being a hypocrite? uh oh...

By the way... that broccoli, carrots, and cheese is the sickest thing ever. Eli spit it out, covered his mouth, and started crying... haha... it smells horrible.

Can you tell Eli to teach Eisley how to say "Mama". I don't care if its in a screaming, I need you right now, voice...where's the love. She can say her name (well, she does a pretty good job with it.) but not MAMA!!! Tell her Eli!
