Home of the free, brave, and mutilated penises

2012-03-01T14:23:45.274-08:00

I am so agitated at AMERICA. Why do people still circumcise at all? EVER? I was reading this BEAUTIFUL ARTICLE which lead me to a youtube video of the procedure. I am putting a link here for the video which forever makes me more passionately aware that I was so correct in not doing this to my children. In the past I have strayed away from talking about the whole subject together with the thought, it wasn't anybody's business whether my boys were intact or not. After seeing this video (or part, I couldn't watch all of it b/c of how horrific it was and how much I was crying!) I realized how wrong parenting in America has become, how can anyone stand there so complacent as they watch their child going through extreme amounts of pain and mutilation and all in the name of cosmetic "rightness". If you have made this decision in the past because it was believed to be correct and the doctor bullied, or talked you into it, I am not saying you are a villian. I wonder still though, how did you do it. I could not stand by and watch that happen, ALLOW it to unless they forced me in which case I would head for the hills. I speak of America because everyone else in the developed parts of the world seem to have already picked up on the morally wrongness of this all. I Cannot bear to think of how many boys are still going through this and the people responsible are not being held liable. If not for a true medical reason this is ABUSE. Before it was believed to be safer, cleaner, and almost necessary to avoid certain severe problems from occuring, so once again if you have had this done to any of your children, I am not bashing you. Just please before you let anybody do this to an infant without a medical reason think of this......


If they could talk, would they say, "Yes please mommy, Cut a perfectly good part of my body off, and don't worry about giving me any pain meds for the procedure, I won't remember it later."

NOBODY WOULD!

I hope I don't come off as a ranter, and if I do don't forgot about THIS link which is a more peaceful approach with links and a helpful perspective on the matter.

Love till next post,
Sandra

p.s. It is my humble opinion that they should make you watch that YouTube video before they ever let you make the decision to do it to your own baby, and further, if you can watch that video all the way through, with the same indifference on the matter as most have before, you really shouldn't be a parent. It needs to be a more emotionally connected job.



Home again.

Ya know, sometimes, I hate to admit that people disappoint me. I mean human logic aggravates me but sometimes, also who it is, it is just extremely worse. I guess I just don't fit into a "normal" American logic. So I leave it to you, anyone out there, maybe you can reason with my brain, explain, rationally bring me over to your side on a few matters. If you are able to sued my uncanny mind into agreeing this will be how. Here are a couple of ways people just throw me off and I am not pompous by any means. I am not saying I am better (although all the choices I make are better for me and MY family). I just am CONFUSED.

1. Why do people act weird about me homeschooling my children? Especially after all the flunkouts, shootings, molestation, etc.... Why?

2. Why do people keep trying to give us tvs? Do you think we are to poor to purchase one? Is it so hard to believe that there can be life without it?

3. Why is it weird that my baby should need comforting? I seem to get this vibe from some that tends to make me feel that you all think that walking my baby is extremely weird and SOOOO different than rocking or driving the kid around. Methods change, the basic concept stays the same, BABIES NEED COMFORTING. Not my idea.

4. Why are people willing to put themselves into situations already knowing what is ahead and then complaining once their there?

I could go on and on. I seem to just not fit in I suppose.

Oh well, I don't know what else to say right now other than obviously feeling a little sad about my isolation from my peers and elders and EVERYONE due to cultural differences even though we are from the same Americas.

NaBloPoMo, is that you?

2012-02-20T19:12:59.360-08:00

My brain and computer access at present, I think, have confused me into thinking that it is National Blog Posting Month (nablopomo). I say this since this is like the 4th post this month or something! Insane to think I have enough time and energy stored up to manage something like this! Anyway, I wanted to talk about this friend thing, it is sooooo hard to find friends. I don't know how some of you all do it. Sure, I have Facebook friends and all of my Fb friends I find lovely or at least interesting, BUT, I don't spend time with most of them, nor do any of them call me (my sister and my mother simply don't count). I have come to realize this is mostly because it is nearly impossible for me to relate to the socially normal events and decisions people make. I am not saying, "hahaha my ways are right and you all are NUTS." Okay, maybe at some level of subconsciousness, I am, BUT...I don't try to do that. I stay open minded most of the time, but how am I suppose to relate or accept how some people choose to do things that are so different from the path I have chosen? Why would they want to be friends with me when usually I disprove all their ideals by just walking into the room ALIVE? Does anybody have a real answer? Just throwing this out there, until then, I will stay hopeful and avoid people that upset me by some of the things they say and do that I find appalling.

FUN PICTURE TIME AS TO BE EXPECTED. Forget any depressing ramblings you just completed the reading of.

(image) There are simply no words that I can put here to express the love I have for this photograph of my sweet baby Andrew.

Today I have realized that Charlie is so much closer to be a grown up it is crazy! He was looking at the blog with and said, "Hey go back to the picture, that was me! I was asleep in a bouncy with my leg out. Andy does that now because I am to much older." CRAZY. I know that time is precious but so is sleep and it is hard to enjoy the preciousness of the time when I am so exhausted.
Russell has been working out of town so I have been taking care of the kids essentially on my own. I will be elated when that little lull in emptiness is over. Anyway I don't know much what to talk about so I will make this short, I have picked a randomly cute picture to go with this post so maybe you will look past my unorganized ramblings and notice the adorableness that my boys are.
Ooooo, also, Andy and Charlie have quite a striking resemblance to each other as far as baby pictures go but I am sure you can guess, who is who. :)

Sweet Treat Monthly (February)

2012-02-15T19:42:28.462-08:00

Christmas is a wonderful time for pie, Birthdays are the cliche for cakes or cakes separated into cups, but what about the rest of the year? Well for me, problem solved. I have a wonderful mother-in-law that gives me "coupons" for A sweet treat (which she usually delivers EVEN SWEETER) one per month. I posted a picture of the one from January, ya know the awesome wedding topper? Ya that was all thanks to the idea that deserts are not just seasonal. You can easily add to your waistline YEAR ROUND! HAha.. I was ever so blessed with this annual gift for the first time last year and we "renewed my prescription" to this again this year. so tasty, She is a cake genius! This month I wasn't sure what to pick so I vaguely mentioned something with oreos. Well, I gave her lemons and she made lemonade for sure! :)

I will keep you updated monthly!Brilliant!

Huggable, Kissable, SObelievable.

2012-02-14T08:24:13.870-08:00

Today is one of the largest commercialized holidays of the year. Nothing like Valentines day makes you have to buy! buy! buy! Do we all forget that when these holidays were started they were for some religious or object-less reason and the old way to celebrate were through actions and gestures? My husband is totally NOT ALLOWED to buy me anything for V-day (kind of sounds like war times, sometimes is). I believe in more of the idea that he should make random gestures of love for me THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. If the only time he musters up enough drive to get me something or love on me is the required day, maybe we weren't meant to be. I don't mean to be a holiday grinch but really, I think the way we "must" celebrate in America is just ridiculous. Do something nice for somebody, why are we so infatuated with objects. The obsession with our things is out of hand. LOVE me or go away. I don't need your flowers today. I also don't want to make a huge neon sign for those without a certain someone in their life saying, "YOU CANNOT HAVE THIS HOLIDAY BECAUSE YOU ARE ALONE, HAHAHAHAHAHA YOU SUCK" I mean really. enough said.

Love till next post,
Sandra

p.s. What I just said totally doesn't mean we don't take advantage of the sales the day after vday so we can have chocolate and stuff for less money :) if your into getting stuff, wait the extra day and you can get twice as much for your money
HAPPY VALENTINE's DAY

Time is Short. I wish I could write to my husband a wonderfully prepared 234 page book on how many different ways he is a miracle in my life. I don't however, because we together have two other slightly shorter miracles in our life together that take up ALL MY TIME! As our anniversary month (it is hard to celebrate on the official day, so we have a month leeway).

Anyway just wanted to say thank you to my mother in law for making our wonderful anniversary cake and Thank you to my husband for being mine, I love you!

Remember when I said I would try to maintain more consistency with the whole blogging? Whoops...I guess that it comes with being a scatterbrained mother of two, the lack of being able to fulfill trivial verbal commitments. My most sincere of apologies. There isn't A whole lot fo blogging I can do, not very interesting things I can thing of typing. My brain is like mashed banana, steamed carrot puree, mushed peas...did I mention I have a baby who is pretty interested in starter foods? See so since my head is foggy-ed with all things baby how could I possible construct anything interesting that also made sense? I have come to realize in this stage of motherhood things about other mothers that is discerning and creates a lack of compatibility between they and I. Maybe I could muster up the sentences into a great blog next time around. Not today though. I am so sleep deprived I doubt I will even check this to make sure I spelled everything correctly. Soooo I leaf you know and talk to yous lata.

p.s. There seems to be some unspoken, yet recognized, rule of thumb that if you post a picture, you will have more people following your blog..what do people like more than a good old Kodak moment....gotcha!

I am once again passing up the opportunity to participate in this event. I do hope to have more opportunities to post this month and shall make a conscience effort to do so.

The End.



Halloween 2011

2011-11-05T11:34:19.715-07:00

sssssss


Halloween was fun this year! The first year I didn't have to worry about juggling work with a toddler. It was kind of surreal to be able to shop around for activities and go to more than one!!! WOW! So fun, we also got to go trick or treating and I face painted the boys! So much excitement. I could get used to this :)

Real quick a picture fix of how wonderful Charlie is at being a big brother and copying my EVERY move! Pretty cute how he wants to help the baby grow big and strong with his awesome "milk" lol. I don't know if people will think this is strange, but you shouldn't. It's ADORABLE!

The end.

I know it has been a month or so since my last post, but, I haven't been to a place with internet since my post...at least not with my computer at hand :(.

So, Andrew is 2mo. old now and growing splendidly, Charlie is loving being a big brother, and us parents, we are ready for some sleep!

I don't remember what exactly I was keeping on my mind when Charlie was this age, but with Andy there isn't a whole lot I can keep because there is so much on my mind. He has been quite the coo-er lately and that's pretty awesome, and he is growing at such a rapid pace he is quickly out doing babies twice his age! I love having both of them together, something else I didn't experience with Charlie. It's amazing to see there bond and the giggles they share :)

We are getting ready for Halloween and also thinking about taking on Thanksgiving, Going to see how that goes.

Also, We built a playhouse for the boys which is FANTABULOUS size. Just got it done and will have more completely finished pictures later, until then, these will have to do...

Heat record..ug.

2011-08-20T15:00:18.348-07:00



We are only one or two days away from having the most days in the summer over 100 degrees in the summer EVEr! This makes me a little sad because Charlie is so bored and I Really really want to take him outside! So hot that when we do go somewhere, we have to have access to a place to nap because it has exhausted us so badly and the baby sleeps even more! It makes me sad :( I have the evidence of the difference the heat makes on my boys below.....


Exhibit A, before we get out in the heat......

Exhibit B, after getting out in the heat...

Getting hot being by the computer so I will post again soon! promise :)

Our family is complete! Andrew is here. :) I am elated to have my boys all together and working on getting back to normal. (normal? what will that be, I guess I meant working on creating a normal for us.) Anyway not to much to say right now, lack of sleep and free hands is a factor in how short this post is but, I will leave you the info and some fun pictures!

Daddy Duty

2011-08-02T11:58:50.634-07:00

As I am severely pregnant (STILL), and have been for a month or two, you can image how Charlie may become a little bored of me during the day. The limitations are endless and we try to think of creative things to do. None of the things we think up involve me physically doing much, which is why when daddy gets home he has twice as many requests for games that involve physical involvement.

Oh and what an awesome daddy, to step up and do physically what I cannot. Playing baseball (or trying? sports is more my thing), running, jumping, exercise videos (Charlie really likes the richard simmons ones :p), wrestling, chase, and the physically impossible for me,
Basket imagination time.....

First it's a car...Daddy should you be on your phone?
(image) Now a bathtub, don't forget to shave your legs daddy!!
(image) Tuck me in, Goodnight..2sec later... Ok, daddy's turn GOOD MORNING!
(image) Charlie: GOOD MORNING i AM UP, IT'S BATHTIME!
Daddy: I HAVEN'T HAD A TURN IN THE BED BASKET YET
Charlie: oOH I FORGOT! GO GO, good night daddy, sweet dreams I LOVE YOU.

(image) good night daddy indeed. You've earned it. :)

Sandra



Still pregnant, for now...

2011-07-26T13:38:40.521-07:00

As the days roll on I have less than a week until my EDD. I think the baby really just wants to make sure we are really ready. We are almost unpacked all the way and almost cleaned and prepared. I think we have talked it over with everyone and plan on Thursday :). No pictures for now of us but When I get home I promise I will upload some in another post.

Love till next post,
Sandra Golden :)



Big Brother (you've waited long enough)

2011-07-16T14:19:07.796-07:00



So first off I wanted to apologize for how long I have gone without visually updating all of you, it may come to quite a surprise what Charlie looks like these days since the last time I posted I am pretty sure he was just a baby and now he is such a big boy :).

Also, with the arrival of a new baby soon I wanted to share with you all the signs Charlie has given displaying he is ready to be quite a great big brother. Between the many physical exhibits and the conversational tidbits there are a bit to many to start typing out what all has led to my believing he is almost as ready as I am to have the baby! :) Here is a little sign for you all though, evidence to tide you over for the time being.

Hope that satisfies for now! :)

Estimated Due Dates, and brick houses

2011-07-04T13:21:08.636-07:00

Normally I am pretty sure those two things don't go together but, if you haven't been closely in contact with me then here is the time to talk about both of them to update all and anybody reading this blog!

Estimated due date: July 28th. ESTIMATED.
Some of the people who are aware of this are already planning on coming over to see the baby on the 28th. Others ask what time of day I will be going into the hospital bwah! hospital, as if. So if you didn't know when the baby was "due" there you go, mark the calander and sit in foolishness waiting. Either that or be completely unprepared for that phone call on the 26th you get from me telling you all about the baby. ESTIMATED kids, just remember that please.

So now onto the whole brick houses thing. I probably meant the singular form. Brick house. That is totally what My husband, Charlie, and I live in now! No more stupid apartment with stupid apartment-ness! I am so loving not hearing my neighbors doing their laundry through our ceiling! I am so loving a yard and the option of having a spare toilet at my disposal (good to have when you have boys around!). This also means that I have neighbors that are not connected to me that I can wave and smile at from a safe distance :). Internet also available from these neighbors which is beyond AWESOME!

So odd two subjects to bunch together but update done. talk to you soon mom. lol and anybody else reading :)

Love till next post,
Sandra



Things coming up

2011-05-25T18:19:35.722-07:00

Charlie turns 4 in less than a month! Geez time flies, speaking of that I have 7mo. down and 2more to go until baby rainbow is due! :) Charlie is doing this really cute thing where no matter who he is talking to when he leaves, he reminds them to be careful and walk slowly! so silly!

Hope that someone hasn't given up on us and thus can share our new fun times that I am ready to share!

Love till next post,
Sandra



Updates! If anyone is still out there reading :)

2011-05-16T18:11:21.726-07:00

So I am married :), Pregnant, and a stay at home mommy. I have a camera and a computer, no internet at home though. Hopes that I will be able to post and keep up on facebook more often are there and I feel very optimistic! So the test is, I will update some but please make some kind of comment so I know if Anyone is reading to let know. I will probably still Blog for the benefit of my own memory down the road :) lol.

Details soon Hopefully you all haven't given up hope completely!

Love till next post,

FIRE!!

2010-07-25T12:36:46.160-07:00

Our fourth went splendidly! Charlie was running around screaming, "I make a fire!!" It was quite entertaining! He was so great! I didn't take pictures because I don't have a camera. I fully rely on Karen and my mom. So if anybody knows of a camera I could get for not to much money that would be great!

I am planning the wedding and will have updates on here!

love till next post,
Sandra



Some good news!

2010-07-02T09:52:03.931-07:00

Yay Fourth of July weekend Is almost here! Charlie is 3 and we get to do fireworks at "Daddy's" this year. Last year for fourth of July we didn't really do anything that exciting so it should be awesome! BTW for those of you who haven't talked to me I have a couple of things to tell you. "Daddy" is not the man that donated to create Charlie. He is the love of my life and will be for the rest of my life. He is Charlie's Dad now, whether by blood or no. That brings me to my second big thing, maybe not by blood but by marriage soon he will be Charlie's dad! We are engaged!

Yay! I think that is enough news and I have about an hour left of work so I am going to get busy and post while I am at mom's house over the weekend? Hopefully I can upload some pictures!

Love till next post,
Sandra



I Promise.....

2010-06-25T13:44:03.142-07:00

So here I am. Testing my blogging waters out again. A little chilly and empty. Maybe you all would have more interest if I had been more consistent these past 3 years? Yea, Life grabs you buy the horns sometimes and veres you the opposite direction from these little outlets in life. Sorry for the dismissal of this by me, I am sure you feel a slight bit abandoned. Well Charlie turned 3 Tuesday. I am sorry I haven't been keeping you all informed and updated on his ever changing life and his quickly growing mind and body! So on this the week of the 3rd anniversary of the birth of THE KING, I solemly vow to start updating again once a month! Charlie's Birthday party is Sunday and I will definitely get pictures from that to post!

Love till next post,
Sandra



Is anybody out there?

2010-06-18T14:39:35.823-07:00

Okay so I wanna start posting again but I am not sure if anybody still checks my blog. Please comment and I will be watching to see if there is still anyone out there with hope.

Love till next post,
