You: Mara

Your Moonbeam: Beni

Does your Moonbeam like water (bath, shower, pool, lake, ocean?) Do you? YES! Beni LOVES the water in any form- actually recently, she also REALLY likes to drink it! I like water, but, my DH could like, LIVE in the water (ok, maybe not). Beni takes after her dad for sure.

Do you watch tv? Live or DVR? Yes, I watch tv a lot, but, randomly I will not watch any for a while and I am ok with that too. I watch it live, I don't have DVR. I even watch commercials (I know that makes some people cringe!)

What did you (er, someone?) make for dinner tonight? Did your Moonbeam eat it? I made steamed broccoli and cauliflower and pasta with butter and shaved parmesan. Beni and I ate the same thing, except that my plate was 70/30 with more veggies, and her plate was 70/30 with more pasta. Smile

Are you and your Moonbeam going on any special trips this summer? Well, yes we are! At the end of June, we head back to Colorado for my younger brother's wedding. Then on the 4th of July we head to Latvia, which should be awesome. And then, at the tail end of July, we head to Laos!

Do you have a favorite kind of chocolate? Has your Moonbeam had any chocolate? I really like dark chocolate with ginger (Green and Blacks) or their milk chocolate with peanuts and sea salt. I love chocolate with fruit and chocolate with toffee too. Beni hasn't had much. One day I had a frosty from Wendy's and she had one tiny spoonful. She was kind of "meh" about it. I don't think she's had any otherwise.

What is your Moonbeam doing these days that makes you smile EXTRA big? She started actively hugging a few weeks ago- like squeezing me, instead of just allowing herself to be squeezed. Every time she does it I explode with sheer joy happiness. Smile

What is your Moonbeam doing these days that makes you want to pull your hair out? Pushing buttons on the tv. It drives me crazy. And then, as I said before in another thread, thinking it's a game when I try to get her to stop (previously by saying no, and now by using a "not yours" phrase + distraction).

Does your Moonbeam have a favorite book? toy? activity? She loves her bedtime book which is called I'll See You in the Morning. She loves books in general. This week her favorite toy is the shopping cart. She pushes it around and around and around and cries and screams when she runs into something and can't keep moving. She's a little ridiculous. I always think she's hurt, and she's just being silly. Sigh. Her other favorite thing to do these days is to climb. She doesn't ride her riding toy, she climbs up, on, over, repeat, repeat, repeat.

Do you drink coffee? How do you take it? I haven't been a regular coffee drinker in YEARS (like, since college, so at least 7-8 years!), but since I came back to the States I totally started and am now doing at least 2 cups a morning! I love it with half and half and sugar.

Name a random pet peeve: I can't stand it when you KNOW you put a even number of socks in the washer, and you get an odd number out. Dangit!

Name something that makes you happy: I love it when it's cool at night and you can breathe fresh air and snuggle under just the right amount of blanket for a perfect night's sleep!

And also, I find great satisfaction in doing a bunch of laundry in one day and having it all done and put away and having full closets. Smile (that was today!)

Dara

Your Moonbeam:

Lainey

Does your Moonbeam like water (bath, shower, pool, lake, ocean?) Do you?

Yup.. she gets totally excited when she hears the shower water running and runs to the glass door and starts banging and nodding her head yes!

Do you watch tv? Live or DVR?

Yes I watch all kinds.. and I prefer off the DVR so I can zip thru stuff. Saves so much time!

What did you (er, someone?) make for dinner tonight? Did your Moonbeam eat it?

Tonight was a non-cooking night. My girlies all had turkey hot dogs. This was Lainey's first time to have one because I am paranoid about choking type foods. So I shaved most the skin off and diced it up in very small pieces. She also had some of a slice of cheese

Are you and your Moonbeam going on any special trips this summer?

Nope. Not in the budget to travel.

Do you have a favorite kind of chocolate? Has your Moonbeam had any chocolate?

Is ANY an acceptable answer? LOL. Yes Lainey has tried some here and there.. lets see at Easter she kept getting into her sisters baskets and trying to inhale right through the foil wrapper.. and then at her birthday she WENT NUTS for her cake. Did you all catch those pictures on facebook? Biggrin She looooved it.

What is your Moonbeam doing these days that makes you smile EXTRA big?

Oh geesh.. I can go on and on. She is doing something new everyday I swear. Today I asked her what does a lion say and she smiled and growled at me: "GRRRRR!" (LOVE IT!) Also over the weekend she started saying "PEE-DA-DOO!" when we cover our faces with something. Oh and telling us "nononono!" and shaking her finger back and forth at something she knows is a "no-no". And then she proceeds to do it anyway! LOL

What is your Moonbeam doing these days that makes you want to pull your hair out?

Getting into EVERYTHING. She is very very messy. Everything basket has to be emptied out.. everything on tables gets thrown to the floor (like you might as well just sweep your arm across the table and do it yourself before she enters a room because its the first thing she does).. paper gets shredded... dog food gets eaten... etc..And the girl is QUICK.

Does your Moonbeam have a favorite book? toy? activity?

Music!!!! It can be a commercial.. the radio.. a toy that plays music. She hears it.. and she lights up and starts dancing. She does what looks like the twist. I have got to work on getting it on video. And she knows the word dance. If anyone says it she starts twisting and grinning.

Do you drink coffee? How do you take it?

Yes.. only way I stay sane somedays. Little creamer and a packet of sweet-n-low

Name a random pet peeve: I can't stand it when...

people in a grocery story push their cart along in the middle of an isle at the speed of a snail and its all I can do not to zip around them and glare. My life is so fast paced with the craziness of 3 young kids.. Im always rush rush rush trying to get stuff done quick and I have no patience for stuff like that!

Name something that makes you happy: I love it when...

I see all my girls playing and giggling and loving each other.. makes everything instantly better.

And also... (name something else that makes you happy!)

Late at night when the kiddos are asleep... its just me up in a quiet house with a DVR full of my shows. I love my downtime

What is your Moonbeam doing these days that makes you smile EXTRA big? EVERYTHING!!! i love having a one year old. he is so much fun. he is just starting to walk. I love how he takes 5 uneasy steps towards me and the collapses into my arms.

What is your Moonbeam doing these days that makes you want to pull your hair out? he is SO IMPATIENT with food. he sits in his chair and SCREAMS while you prepare his food, or if he has to wait because its too hot. then he SCREAMS in between bites. its rather annoying. or if DH and i are eating something different than him that also results in a meltdown.

Does your Moonbeam have a favorite book? toy? activity? he loves water!! if there is a glass of water he can reach, his hand goes right in to start splashing lol. he still loves his electric keyboard. and he LOVES going outside to see our rabbits.

Do you drink coffee? How do you take it?
normally, YES!!! with cream and sugar. with the morning sickness though i cant stand the sight, taste, smell, or thought of it. i did have half a cup this morning though for the first time in about a month. i feel really hyper now.

Name a random pet peeve: I can't stand it when...
i hate when people misuse pronouns. when they use the nominative case when they should use the objective case. example "the dog went to the park with my sisters and I" uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh!!! it should be "my sisters and ME"!!!!!!! yeah, that really annoys me Smile

Name something that makes you happy: I love it when...
beautiful days, being outside, not puking..

And also... (name something else that makes you happy!)
when my house is clean!! and Luke. Luke makes me happier than anything in the world.

Your Moonbeam: Nico

Does your Moonbeam like water (bath, shower, pool, lake, ocean?) Do you? Yes, we both do -my mom was a swim teacher so we were in the water all summer & Nico love it also...I have a hard time getting him out of the tub most nights.

Do you watch tv? Live or DVR? We only watch a little...as soon as the hockey season ends we are shutting off our cable - it has gotten way too expensive & we just don't watch it enough to justify the cost.

What did you (er, someone?) make for dinner tonight? Did your Moonbeam eat it? Turkey burger w/ sweet potato fries...Nico ate a fry or two, but he mostly ate cut up tomato & strawberries.

Are you and your Moonbeam going on any special trips this summer? We have a couple of trips planned to visit family.

Do you have a favorite kind of chocolate? Has your Moonbeam had any chocolate? I like it all! So does Nico - he loves sweets & I give him a little here & there.

What is your Moonbeam doing these days that makes you smile EXTRA big? He does the sounds for doggy, elephant, fishy & tiger......so dang cute. He has also started to give random kisses without being asked.

What is your Moonbeam doing these days that makes you want to pull your hair out? He bites his fist when he gets frustrated & he bites my shoulder when I am carrying or rocking him - grrr!

Your Moonbeam: Eve

Does your Moonbeam like water (bath, shower, pool, lake, ocean?) Do you? I love the water. Eve loves her bath, tolerates the shower, is pretty scared of the pool, and I've never let her into the gulf because I'm still paranoid about oil residue.

Do you watch tv? Live or DVR? We do live TV and Netflix. I like the commercial breaks because they give ample time for potty or snack breaks. I also like prerecorded because I can watch episodes back to back to back/pause and rewatch.

What did you (er, someone?) make for dinner tonight? Did your Moonbeam eat it? We're having spaghetti dinners to benefit a family at our daycare. I hope she eats hers. She tends to really love pasta, so I'm thinking she'll be good.

Are you and your Moonbeam going on any special trips this summer? If Eve wins the radio contest, we'll get a little stay on the beach. If not, we'll probably just take short day-trips on random weekends.

Do you have a favorite kind of chocolate? Has your Moonbeam had any chocolate? I love dark chocolate, usually the darker the better. I also love it when it's combined with some spicy chiles (à la the Mayan way of doing things). Spicy chocolate = heaven in my book. Eve has had some chocolate bar over Easter and probably a lick or two of chocolate ice cream. If she sees you eating a sweet, you better give her some or she'll throw a fit!

What is your Moonbeam doing these days that makes you smile EXTRA big? That girl just oozes cuteness. I can't resist a smile from her!

What is your Moonbeam doing these days that makes you want to pull your hair out? She gets frustrated really easily. She'll try to put her shoes on or put some toy parts together but can't and then she'll just whine "Maaaaamaaaaaaaaa!" and then really freaks unless I go to her right then. Well, her saying mama is cute, but when she's screeching it, it's a whole other story.

Does your Moonbeam have a favorite book? toy? activity? If it's a book, she wants it to be read to her. She likes to try to turn the pages too. She likes her dolly that sings ABCs and 123s, but she also likes her brothers' toys.

Do you drink coffee? How do you take it? Nope, never was much of a coffee drinker. I love tea though (if it's hot, with sugar, if it's cold, without)

Name a random pet peeve: I can't stand it when...people leave their shopping carts all over the parking lot. At least move it so it's not taking up a space!

Name something that makes you happy: I love it when...it's time to pick the kids up after work. We are always so happy to see each other!

And also... (name something else that makes you happy!) bright, sunny days

Your Moonbeam: Lucas

Does your Moonbeam like water (bath, shower, pool, lake, ocean?) Do you? He LOVES water!! He gets so excited and splashes, squeals and laughs like crazy! We havn't had much pool time yet, but I know he'll love it this summer! I am not a big water person. I love hot tubs and heated pools. I don't like to be cold- and I get cold in the water fast. I also HATE deep dark water, so I don't enjoy swimming in lakes or the ocean! haha!

Do you watch tv? Live or DVR? We don't have any cable, just Netflix streaming. My DH and I have been watching some of the TV series on there. I like it that way- no commercials, and we don't have to wait for the next one!

What did you (er, someone?) make for dinner tonight? Did your Moonbeam eat it? We had leftover Shepard's Pie that I made for DH's birthday last night. Yummy!

Are you and your Moonbeam going on any special trips this summer? We will be going up to the lake we camp at this summer. Some weekend trips, and probably at least once where we'll be up there for a week. We'd like to do some day trips around the coast too!

Do you have a favorite kind of chocolate? Has your Moonbeam had any chocolate? I love chocolate! Mostly candy bars! Lucas has had some chocolate in his birthday cake, and Norman's Ice cream cake last night. He seemed to enjoy it!

What is your Moonbeam doing these days that makes you smile EXTRA big? He is the SWEETEST baby! When he sees any of the people that work with him, or any family memebers, he will lean towards them to be held and give them all big hugs. I love how friendly and social he is!

What is your Moonbeam doing these days that makes you want to pull your hair out? Not much! I'd say diaper changes are still tough, but besides that he's a piece of cake compared to my three year old! Wink

Does your Moonbeam have a favorite book? toy? activity? He likes toys where he can try to figure them out. Opening and shutting things, putting things in and taking them back out. He will sit with one toy and play with it for a while. He also LOOOOOVESSS bubbles!

Do you drink coffee? How do you take it? I drink it every once in a while- but *only* a Dunkin Donute Iced Caramel Swirl coffee with extra cream and sugar! It tastes *nothing* like coffee- which I love because I hate the taste of coffee! haha!

Name a random pet peeve: I can't stand it when... people are crappy inconsiderate drivers!

Name something that makes you happy: I love it when... my kids do something unprompted that gives me the warm fuzzies. Like today Noah told me to let a girl and her Mom go out the door ahead of us while he held it open. Melted me!

And also... (name something else that makes you happy!) That Lucas is getting his implant in less than a month and will be activated three weeks after that!!

Does your Moonbeam like water (bath, shower, pool, lake, ocean?) Do you? Oh dear he positively LOVES the water. He starts squealing as soon as he hears the bath start, and throws a fit when it's time to get out. I can't wait to take him to the beach next month!!

Do you watch tv? Live or DVR? I watch a handful of shows, all on DVR b/c I can never catch them on the night they actually air. It's better that way though b/c I can fast forward through the commercials. Smile

What did you (er, someone?) make for dinner tonight? Did your Moonbeam eat it? Last night I made tacos, so Jake had a black bean and cheese quesadilla. He ate some of it...in fact I just changed a poopy diaper with lots of black beans in it lol.

Are you and your Moonbeam going on any special trips this summer? We are all going to my dad's house in Charleston, SC next month. Yay! It'll be Jake's first time to the beach so I'm really excited!

Do you have a favorite kind of chocolate? Has your Moonbeam had any chocolate? I am a huge sucker for Godiva chocolate. It's heavenly. Jake's had a taste of a strawberry milkshake but no chocolate. Smile

What is your Moonbeam doing these days that makes you smile EXTRA big? He's SO AWESOME! I love how much of his personality is coming out these days. He'll "run" toward us flapping his arms and laughing and then throw himself into our arms. It's so sweet! He's also started calling me "Mama" when he's mad, which is so freaking cute! Smile

What is your Moonbeam doing these days that makes you want to pull your hair out? I can no longer put him in the pack 'n play or his crib for 10 minutes so I can shower--he becomes absolutely HYSTERICAL. Like hot tears running down his face gagging hysterical within two minutes. It's a little ridiculous lol.

Does your Moonbeam have a favorite book? toy? activity? He loves, loves, loves blocks. He loves to build towers, knock them down, stick the blocks places, put them in buckets and carry them around etc.

Do you drink coffee? How do you take it? I've been drinking it daily again lol. Sugar and half and half! Smile

Name a random pet peeve: I can't stand it when... People get in the fast lane and drive the speed limit. Or don't use their turn signals. Or BRAKE WHEN MERGING ON THE HIGHWAY! I have road issues lol.

Name something that makes you happy: I love it when... My boys play together in matching pjs. I almost cried with joy over this the other day!!

And also... (name something else that makes you happy!) Any time DH and I get to go out and do something just the two of us. It seriously makes my whole week!
