Learning new words.... and the taste of soap

Last night wile playing the Wii, Justin made a mistake and a lovely new word he picked up at school came flying out of his mouth. Lets just say it sounds like Hit but has a S in front of it.

I don't think I ever felt so enraged as I did last night. I think the worst part of it is I knew this day was coming. The day it would finally hit me hard that Justin is a child who is growing and losing more of his innocence every day. Needless to say we had a long talk about what that word meant, who he learned it from, how it makes him look saying it, How we don't use it, and the one that made him cry "would you say it in front of Heavenly Father?". So he made a very wise decision today and decided he was no longer going to play with the kids who apparently use this word and many more every day out in the field. I had some fun wile I was LPS-ing today and sent 3 of them to the office for swearing.

Since it was his first offense we let Justin off with a warning and a future threat. I took a old bar of soap we have in the cabinet and on the box wrote his name on it. Then told him if I hear it come out of his mouth again he was getting his mouth washed out with it. At first he didn't really believe me but I'm pretty sure he doesn't want to test that theory hahaha.

Feel the Papa love

Back in March my Mom and Step Dad Mike came to visit us for my sisters wedding. When they came they stayed with us a few days and the kids were in Nana and Papa heaven. After they left to go back home each of the kids claimed a pillow that my Mom and Mike used. Justin took my Mom's (his Nana Pillow) and Sky took Mike's (her Papa Pillow). They have made sure that these pillows are on their beds every night.

Last week we hit Disneyland right before school started. When we got home we put everything away and relaxed for the night. When bed time came the kids got ready as normal when Sky climbed in to bed she asked "Mom where is my Papa Pillow?" Mick and I looked at each other realizing it must have been left behind at the hotel. Sky realized just as fast as we did she forgot it and her pillow was now a 6 hour drive away. Needless to say she began to cry and I tried to console her but it was no use. I then called the hotel and they told me to call back first thing in the morning when the housecleaning supervisor was there.
At 7am the next day me and Skyla called and found out that the hotel had her Papa pillow and they would send it to us. $7.50 and 6 days later Sky got her beloved papa pillow in the mail.

Her is a cute video of her opening the box.
