Brian all day keeps saying "happy valentines day".
One of our family traditions that we often do, When we are waiting for everyone to come for prayers, all those that are in the room agree to say "AMEN" when someone walks in. Pretending like we just finshed saying the prayers and they missed it. Tonight Kerry and Brian were the last ones to walk in . So we proceded to say in unison "AMEN". Brian started to cry . I thought man he must be really tired until he said. "AHHH I wanted to say it." We all thought it was so funny so Kerry helped him say the prayer. While Kerry was saying the prayer he started to bless the Family with "please bless Mom and Dad" and Brian says "and Me". Kerry went on "and Megan and Ashley" Brian says "and Me" and so on. I really do not remember much more of the prayer because I was holding my giggles in.
Another funny story. We came home from being in town and Brian had fallen asleep on the way home. I tried to lay him down but he wanted his binki. He realized that he had left it at work with Kerry. I let him try calling Kerry but it went straight to voice mail. He handed me the phone and told me to charge it. I asked him "What" and he pointed to the side of the bed where my charger is and said "Charge it" Obviously my phone was not working because Dad did not answer it so I needed to CHARGE IT.

We love this little guy Brian. He has won us all over in this house full of girls. He thinks he is Bob the Builder and if you call out for Bob he says what. He wears overalls everywhere. When it is time for Bed he will not change out of his "Bob the builders"(overalls).You ask him what he wants to be for Halloween and he we quickly respond "bob the builder" Last week before Church I was trying to put on his Church clothes and He cried for 20 minutes while I wriggled his church pants on him. I finally had to let him carry his "bob the builders" to church. When it came time to take him to nursery he dragged along his trusty overalls that were dirtier then ever. When I got out of Young Womens he was standing out in the hall waiting for me with his overalls on over his sunday clothes. It was the funniest thing ever. I have finally convinced him to take them off to take showers. He reverently lays them on his bed and quickly gets in the shower.I am very sneaky at this point and think that I can get them into the washer before he notices. Unfortunaly he notices the minute he gets out of the shower and will (not) patiently wait by the washer for them. Until this Morning.
I really needed to go to the store and did not want to drag his sweet little stubborn self with me. So trying to be discreet, I asked Kerry if he would take "the man" to work with him. We were all eating breakfast in the kitchen and little Brian looks up and asks tentavily "Mom, I'm the Man?" I quickly replied to him "No Brian you are Bob the Builder"
He replies with a little more confidence. "No Mom I am the Man"
He then looks around and sees his hard hat sitting on the counter in front of him, and says "this a Man Hat"
We were all giggling after that . Except him. He is smiling when Megan asks Him "Brian what are you going to be for Halloween"
without even blinking he says "a man"
Megan being as brilliant as ever rushes him back to his room and shows him all the man shorts in his closet which he in turn gets way excited and brings them to me to show me all the MAN PANTS he has. He actually wore normal shorts to work with his Dad today.
I really thought we had finally turned over a new leaf today . That was until he came in while I was putting Melanie down for a nap with his dirty overalls on begging me to put on his Bob the builders. Oh well at least it lasted for 1 morning.

Mom of the Moment award goes to . ME..........So I have to say I get the M.O.M. award today. I really am still deciding if I should laugh or cry. I took Megan 13 Alexis 5 Brian 2 and Melanie 6 months to the grocery store today. When we got out to the van , I realized that I had not paid for some chicken that had slipped under Melanies car seat. I told Megs to load the kids and I would run back in to pay for it. The checker told me I was awesome for coming back to pay for it. I ran back to the van and we were on our way home. About 8-9 minutes (and almost home) later. Lexi asks me were Brian was. I turned around and realized he was not in his car seat. AHHHHHH!!! I called for him hoping we had just forgot to buckle him and he had gotten out. No such luck. I immediatley turned around and headed back to lins. I had Megan start looking up the # for Lins and realized it was on there receipt. I called and asked if they had an extra little boy. Sure enough they did. That was the longest ride to Lins I have ever had. I ran in to get him and he was sitting on one of the employees laps.Now picture our cute little 2 year old with a handsome lime green brand new shirt and cute shorts and a bike helmet on his head. Yep the one he wears everywhere. He looks up at me with his beautiful blue eyes and says with a cheerful unbothered voice "HI Mom" He jumped down and we were on our way. I asked him were they found him. " The candy isle " they say. Yep the candy Isle.He had unknowingly to me, followed me back in to the store. So now you know why I get the wonderful yet terrible award. And might I suggest next time you get in the car check all the car seats. You never know........................................

I cannot believe it is already March! We have been just chillin at the house. Megan has probably went to school a whole 5 or 6 days since she has got out of the hospital. We took her to the Dr. on Monday were he decided she has a ulcer in her tummy. OUCH! So what does that mean for the Bang household. Life is on hold. Ashley is the bestest helper ever . She is about the only one doing chores around the house. She is also the babysitter for me and the whole neighborhood. Thanks Ashley.Her teacher at parent teacher confrence had nothing but good to say about her. She is also doing so amazing at dance.
Madison is working on reading and catching up on all her homework. I went to parent teacher conference were the teacher informed that she is one of 2 kids in the class that needs extra help. WHAT 1 out of 2. Wow that boosts my self esteem as a Mom. I guess have been a real slacker in that area of life. But she is now getting to the point were her clothes and shoes are all laid out for school the next day. Makes for easier mornings without crying over lost shoes. I also found a major reason for a stinky house the other day. I could smell this horendous smell coming from the hall around her room. I kept checking for a unflushed toilet or a dirty diaper but finally found the culprit in Madisons room. She had some "PET" potato bugs in the aqarium in her room, with a pan of water for the drink. The pan of water stunk like no other. I have to say it smells alot better now that I took that outside.
Lexi, Lexi, Lexi, What can I say about her. She is so dang busy. If I tell her to do a chore she sneaks out the basement door and runs to Loris. But She does usually get the dishwasher unloaded every day.She is lovin preschool and cannot wait to start Kindergarten next year.
"Tractor" or should I say Brian. That sweet little boy makes me laugh. He adores tractors and anything else that has anything to do with them. He can be found driving the crane that Dad bought him or the dump truck that Grandma Bang gave him or the tractor that Dad got him on the outing to the tractor store. OR you could find him running out to look at the tractors working on the streets next to us.He loves to wave at the driver of the tractors while showing him his little tractor.When we sit down to dinner he has a trusty little tractor by his side. And you can count on him naming everyone at the table down to the tactor by his side. If he has more then one tractor with him he will name those also. And you can bet that he knows them by name. "tractor, dump truck, crane, truck, cycle, train,car, and whatever else he can find. We stopped to see his Dad the other day and The concrete pump was sitting in the driveway of the shop. He got out of the van and said "WHOA" He walked over to check it out . When he got to the huge tire he got down on one knee to check under it. He walked around the truck with one hand in his pocket saying whoa for 10 minutes. Then told his Dad " concrete truck" over and over. I could littarly do a whole post on this little boy. Maybe I will.
Melanie is one of the best babies ever. She is a smiling wonder. She is getting closer to sitting up. She loves her siblings so much.
Kerry is busy with work and I am busy with Dr appointments and trying to get the house clean.

Lexi: calling from Loris house to see if she can yet again go with them to town.
"Mom can I go with Lori to town"
Me " No Lexi you need to come home you have been at Loris all day. Do you even know who your Mom is"
Lexi " yep Lori, can I go with Them"
Me laughing" Whos your Mom Lexi"
Lexi without hesitation " Lori"
Me trying to hold it in " Lexi you need to come home. Who is your Mom?'
Lexi" Lori , Mom please"
We go on like this for a few minutes and then we end the conversation with an understanding that she is on her way home.
20 minutes later. the phone rings. Its Lori
Lori" did you tell Lexi she could come with us"
Lori laughing" Lexi chased down my Mom and told her she already talked to you. She is here with us now"
I love Lexi as if she was my own child. Oh wait she is.

If you scroll down I added lots of pictures of Megan in the hospital
Posted by Janae at 7:27 PM
I forgot to write about Megans last night at the hospital. Jessica had planned on staying the night with her. I had been with Meg all day and decided to head home early on Sunday evening to see the kids. I figured Meg would be okay by herself for awhile and I thought there might be a few visitors. Grandma Borrowman came to visit and her friend Celise Hight (who also has juvenile diabetes ) came to visit. Megan called me after they left to let me know they were moving her to another room because they had a child who needed to be closer to the nurses station. Megs was letting me know she was okay and actually enjoyed being there by herself for a little while.
|Me, Meg and Melanie, With the chicken strips that Megan|
had at every meal. She looks pretty ghostly.
|Megan and Chelsie Pettegrew playing this cool Wii that|
they wheel into your room. It had tons of games on it and you
could watch movies
|Megan, Chelsie and Elise. Party time|
|Megan and Lindee Peterson. We loved having her as|
|Elise and Melanie at 11 p.m. Do they look tired at all|
