This morning Fenix comes running to where I am working in the kitchen.
"Mommomomomom!!!!"she says.
"I can't find my robot!!!"

I have no idea what robot she is talking about.
I look around the kitchen floor for a second trying to imagine what she might call her robot.
I don't see anything, and I can't think of anything.

"Where was the last place you saw it?" I ask her.

She thinks about it for a minute and answers me with something I can't understand.

I scratch my head, as if scratching will bring some lost information up from the abyss.
I think it worked because for whatever reason I realized that Fenix was talking about Lyon.
They were playing, and Lyon was Fenix's robot.

So I looked at Fenix and said,
"I don't know where your robot is, let's call him....   ROBOT!!!"

We call out together.

Then Lyon comes up the stairs wobbling and twitching, pretending to be a robot.

"Robot!!!!"  Fenix shouts in delight.  :D

I love when they play together like that.

And Lyon says...

Lyon and I were looking through a Cabelas catalog and he found a page with something he wanted.

He told me that we should get the blow up fort.
I told him it costed a hundred dollars.
He said,
"I wonder where we could get that many moneys! I know, we could get it from da bank!"
He then went on to tell me,
"Good thing I'm always thinking in my head."

I've come to a realization;
for a long time I've been very open on Facebook. I've never minded anyone and everyone being my friend, and I've never minded anyone and everyone commenting on anything I've said as my status or a comment on someone else's. If I have a comment to make on a friends status I'll make it, don't people like comments? Isn't that why we post a status?
Yesterday in making such a comment I came to the realization that my above thought isn't how everyone thinks. Though Facebook is a SOCIAL NETWORK, not everyone wants to be social. That's okay, that's why there are PRIVACY SETTINGS, that's why you can CHOOSE WHO IS YOUR FRIEND, you can CHOOSE WHO ISN'T. If you don't want to interact with people you don't know, you shouldn't be posting something where everyone can see it, should you???

So my realization, not everyone thinks the same way I do, and though I have no problem with that, I have been overcome with confusion and questions.

I'm wondering why I am facebook friends with so many people that I don't really know and who don't know me. I have friends who I've never met, but because they are an acquaintance I've added them as friends and many have accepted my request....

My point is I don't want to associate with people I don't know, don't talk to, don't like, or don't really care about, anymore. I have very few facebook friends that I actually interact with meaningfully on Facebook. I've liked seeing where the people I've grown up with and gone to school with have ended up. I've liked the many different views and opinions on various subjects. I like seeing friendly debates on various topics. Reading another's view is very educational in understanding and empathizing and loving others. I think it makes judging others harder because you can see how and why they are thinking about a matter.
But I may be alone in looking at Facebook and comments that way.

Yesterday I spent a good amount of time sorting through my Facebook friends. I'm a little sad to say that I've deleted more than half of them. I'm not even finished deleting... I've found myself wanting only to be friends with close family, very close friends, and some ward members.
I feel bad about it.
It kind of hurts to find that someone has deleted you as a friend. I am really hoping that most of these "friends" that I've deleted won't notice or care, lol!
My next step is going to be setting this blog to private, for real this time, lol! Being social and public has been fun for a while, but I need a break from all the drama that comes with it.

It's kind of a relief in a way. Freeing even.

My name is Rose and I am humbly bowing out of sight for a while :D

And Fenix says...

I said "okay guys....."

Fenix said, "Mom, we are not guys!"

Me: Oh, then what are you?

Fenix: "Um I Fenix, that Lyon, you mommy."

And Fenix says...

"Mom, I smell pink!"

Oh does it smell good?



"Mom, I put my boogies in my mouth cause I like my boogies... I smell boogies mom, it smells good!"

Once in a while...

My poor little Lyon boy...
He seems to have inherited my accident prone tendencies.
It's not that we are clumsy, no, I don't think that is an accurate description,
but we do have this tendency to find ourselves in painful situations.

Be that as it may I must say
Lyon has yet to break any bones or need stitches, 
and for that I am grateful.

I'm not really sure how he managed to get his thumb stuck in Fenix's baby doll stroller.
I'm not really sure what it (the stroller) was doing outside in the first place.
I suppose it doesn't really matter how it got stuck,
the important thing is that Mama Me managed to get it un-stuck.

I think that'll earn me ten brownie points ;D
