Time to Start Blogging Again!!

Between the move, trying to get settled in and getting Flip signed up for school I have not been blogging much lately. We are now settled and I am going to do better. We are now in Gulfport, MS. We are liking it here much better than we did in Charlotte! Its been great. We are back with Southern people again and the best part, we are only a mile and a half from the beach!! We also added a new addition to the family. A miniature schnauzer puppy named Jax! He is 6 weeks old and looks a lot like Alex. We are very excited about him! I promise to get pictures up soon of Flip and his new buddy!!

I wanna go with you.....

OK guys, tell me. Does this sound like Flip wants to be part of my pain? Does he like to see his Mom go through the thing that he hates most? I found this very funny. It makes me wonder what really goes through his mind. Just so you guys know, I am always the one to take Flip for his shots. Not that Jeff wouldn't but I stay at home so of course it falls to me. Last August they had to give him 4 shots and he remembers this like it was yesterday. It was horrible for him!!
I have had several obgyn appointments the last two weeks which Flip has not been able to go to (for reasons you all know.) He has been staying with a friend of mine that he calls Miss Melody. Next week I have to go back to get an injection which Flip calls a 'pinch.' So here it is:

"Flip, guess what?" I say.

"What Mom?"

"Next week you get to go to the doctor with Mommy. I am only going to be there for a few minutes and you get to go with me!"

"No thanks, I will stay with Miss Melody."

"But Flip all I have to do is get a shot and there is no reason for you to stay with her when it will only take a few minutes."

"No, I will go play with Miss Melody. Mom what's a shot?"

" You know baby, a pinch."

"Oh really?! Momma I wanna go with YOU!!"

I thought about all this for a few minutes and was confused with the excitement about my 'pinch' when it hit me, Flip was excited that it was finally my turn to get a 'pinch' and not his. He just wants to be there for my pay back for all the pinches I have to take him to get!

A Prayer....

Flip has been sick for the last 2 days and he has prayed a lot for God to make his fever go away. I should have posted this story before now but this is the first time I have thought about it since we have been back from visiting family over the holidays. All the praying he has done made me think of this again and gave me a giggle through all this sickness that he has been dealing with.

One evening, while we were away for Christmas, Flip was acting up pretty bad. You know how it is around family, the kids get away with a lot and therefore act up. It wasn't just Flip back talking that was getting him in trouble. He was jumping around on furniture and running through the house like a mad man. Jeff had told Flipper several times "you better stop before you get into BIG trouble." Flip was being hard headed and kept going. After about ten minutes of Jeff and Flip going back and fourth Jeff finally said "Flip you are going to get a spanking." Flip stopped on a dime bowed his head and prayed
Dear Lord,
Please help me be good so Dad will not spank me.
Praise the Lord!!!
Needless to say everyone busted out into laughter and Flip of course did not get into trouble anymore that night.
