Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Resolutions Update and Random Kid Stuff
It's Tuesday. That means it's time to clear all the mumbo-jumbo out of my head so I can be clear for the rest of the week. If you have Random Thoughts this Tuesday that you need to get out. Post it. Then head on over to The Un Mom and link up. I'd love to hear what's swimming around in your head.
The weather has been warm. In the 60's the past few days. Boog used to love to ride his bike. We were so proud when he took off down the street, alone, on his two-wheeler (with training wheels) a week after he turned 2. Now he's 6.5 and the training wheels have been removed. He refuses to get on. I tried to help him. Balanced him and walked/jogged along side. He made it most of the way down the cul de sac without any help from me, but still insists he wants the training wheels back on. I just don't get it. He also loves to play catch and practice batting in the yard and at the park but when we mentioned signing him up for baseball, he fell to pieces and begged me not to make him. Hubster was pretty insistent that he needed to play but I just can't see dragging him out of the car several times a week and forcing him to do something he doesn't want to. He has this fear of people watching him. We're at a loss. We'll wait a year and try again. He said he wanted to try Karate. I explained the discipline aspects and told him he would have to play close attention or he'd get asked to leave. He decided he didn't want to do that. I should've kept my mouth shut!
My New Year Resolutions are working out so far. Most of them. The laundry goal is on track. My commitment to 3 hours of exercise (via Wii Fit/Plus) has been achieved or exceeded each week since the start of the year. Now I just need to work on my abs. I didn't see a "how to reduce stomach fat" section, nor has Mike (my Wii Fit Trainer. What? You didn't name yours?) even brought it up. Maybe he doesn't see what I see?
I'm falling short on the 4 family meals. I'm making them, our timing is just off. Kids are still hungry before Hubster gets home but I'm slowly pushing their eating time back so we'll all be able to eat together.
My goal of cleaning and organizing is going a little slower than planned. I did manage to go through Puddin Pop's room and clean out all the unused toys and clothes. We rearranged the furniture and put a night stand/bookshelf/storage cube next to her bed with a lamp. She claims she's (almost) ready to sleep in her room instead of ours. We tried it the first night and she woke up dazed and confused and didn't know where she was. We'll keep trying.
That's all I've got. Heading over to The Un Mom to see what the rest of you have to say!
