Our Science Baby

Just in case you wanted it again, here is the address to my other blog.

New Flooring

When we moved into the house we knew right away that we wanted to rip the linoleum and part of the carpet area and lay down tile. Who wants their kitchen table to sit on carpet? Not I, Cap'n! Yesterday, we went down and looked at tile in a warehouse, because we were told it would be cheaper there. We were a little sad after looking at the prices but went to Home Depot afterwards to compare. Home Depot was actually cheaper!


Now, because we are trying to do this as cheap and cost effective as possible, we are doing it all ourselves.


And to be honest, I'm pretty nervous about it! We are doing the bathroom first to get a hang of things and make sure we are even slightly skilled in the craft. We tore up the linoleum in the bathroom last night and will start laying the tile soon!

Our Koa-constrictor

Shellie's husband, Mark, gave Koa her full name.

I had a friend over last week while Jake was out of town. Her adorable little girl was with her coloring on the floor. The two if us got to talking and she expressed that her childless friends with dogs spoil their puppies and treat them like their kids. How they compared her little girl to their doggies.

"But you aren't like that, right?"
"No! Oh my gosh, no! She definitely is our baby because we don't have one, but I would never compare her to a real baby."


I'm a liar.

Looking back at that I realized that we are exactly like that! I admitted that we spoil her to death and treat her like our babe, but every time someone has a story about their newborn sleeping through the night, potty training their child, etc I instantly remember one about Koa! However, she does not sleep in bed with us (only while watching something on Netflix) and she eats her puppy food.

I still would never compare the two, but we disgust me. We talk about each other as Mommy or Daddy when baby talking to doggie, she gets a new toy when she is a good girl, and cuddles with us during The Bachelor!

It's something that couples with a kid can't relate to... And boy do I feel bad for them.

  • Your Sister in Law does rodeos where her specialty is goat tying
  • Your Sister in Law and Mother in Law listen to debates and Council Meetings on the radio for fun
  • Your Mother in Law calls in to the radio station with a fake name to ask her husband...ahem... the Assemblyman about his views on issues
  • Your Sister in Law sang I'm Proud To Be An American at a debate tournament because she didn't know about the issue debated

And last but by far definitely not least...

  • Your husband comes home from the hardware store with the biggest freaking American flag you have ever seen for the front of the house and thinks it weird that you don't really want that massive thing hooked to your house
Well ladies and gentlemen... God bless America
