a mommy moment

so we were on our way to MOPS(mothers of Preschoolers) this morning, and a conversation with a three year old went like this:

Brigham: Mommy, what color is your pee?
(mind you this is totally out of the blue)

Me: to be cute)

Brigham: Mommy, your pee is daddy's favorite color GREEEEEEEEN!!!! (the excitement was unreal, as he made this connection!)

another mommy moment: since Tatum is now 5 months old..sniff , sniff. She has offically graduated from being an attendee at MOPS and now has to go into the MOPPETS nursery.
Needless to say this mama's girl fussed the entire time.
I did warn the ladies working in her room and told them not to take offense, that she does this to anyone who is not mommy.

She apprearantly calmed down when they put her in the swing and then they paged me to come feed her.
So I picked her up, brought her back into the meeting where she was happy as a clam eating and snuggling with mommy.
Then mean mama took her back into that awful place, where she proceeded to cry for another 40 minutes until I got there. Just as I came in the room, the lady rocking her, said she had just fallen asleep!!
Of course she woke right up when she heard my voice!!
Luckily I am not one of those moms that gets all frantic about my baby crying. I don't let it bother me. I know she is in good hands of the caregivers, and if she really doesn't calm down, they'll page me.
This is all new to me, as Brigham was an incredibly easy going, totally content baby (thru about 3 years!!) He never made a peep when he was in the nursery, never went thru the seperation anxiety period. Nope, he has NEVER been sad to see mom or dad leave him!!
guess thats why God makes each child unique, so we can experience ALLL the joys of children =)

We had our annual Pumpkin patch party yesterday. It was perfect weather. A tad windy, but at least the kids were not all bundled up with red noses and dried snot on their faces like last year!! LOL
My friend Kim and I planned the festive menu, of chili, cornbread, apples and carmel, pumpkin dip, and vegies. Kim made a fabulous apple/carmel/pecan trifle and I made a pumpkin(flavor and shaped) cake.

As of Saturday night, I was having a complete stress attack as I thought we were going to have 45 people in my house!!! ackkk. I was freaking out a tad, trying to secure a big bounce, and some other fall games so we could be outside.
Although we were sad they coudln't join us, it actually became a blessing when 3 families of 3, 4, 5 kids actually had to cancel at the last minute!
We had a great time, hopefully got some good pictures. Our friend took a family shot of us, so I can't wait to see if it came out all right.
It could be our christmas card pic. if not, we do have a photo shoot scheduled for Tatum's six month, and while she is here, I'll have her take some family ones too.
Um, yeah I am a tad ridiculous when it comes to photography. My husband reminds me every time he gets the bill!!
Well, I hope you are all having a great Monday, enjoy the beautiful changing scenery!

we took like 6 pictures of the kids, and I don't think any of them managed to get all looking at the camera (let alone smiling!!)
the best lil' punkin in the patch!! a friend gave me this hat. isn't it adorable??
