The announcement of "Jamie is coming home" is always met with an element of trepidation these days because we never know just how or if Billie is gonna cause a scene. She seems to take great joy in belittling him and not letting him get out of her sight for two seconds. I am convinced that Hailie is going to grow up thinking that her name is "your daughter" because she is constantly telling Jamie to do something to or for or with "your daughter"...lol. All in all it didnt go to badly though. They got in about 9 Thursday night and I had already cleaned my bedroom and bathroom and decided that they were going to sleep in there and that Tony and I would take the couches. I just wasnt going to even deal with anything else. I insisted. Of course, I had to babyproof much more than I normally do because Keyana is much more used to me than Hailie is. I just didnt realize this...lol. On Friday in order for them to go out, they had to take Billie and Hailie with them (Tony and Jamie) so they went to the most comfortable fishing spot they could find. Now me, I just say...boys go fishing because I dont want to be miserable in the heat and sun but Billie doesnt want to let Jamie out of her sight and stay home and be comfortable like a normal person so she had to tag along and be miserable...lol. Me...I was cool and comfortable at home. Our town had its fireworks display on Friday night and we had planned to take Hailie to see it when we picked up Billy from work that night but she got mad at Tony around 8 pm when she threw a bowl of hotdogs at him and he popped her hands. She had a screaming fit which her momma really didnt like and she gave her a bath and put her to bed...lol. Tony and I ended up taking Cory to go see the fireworks when we picked up Billy. Then on Saturday morning we all got up and went into a little town beside us that was having a parade that Keyana was in for the 4th. She is Dublin's Little Wee Miss Peanut...lol. So we saw her then we got her from the parade and brought her back to our house to play then go swimming with Hailie, Cory and Jamie in the river. I managed to convince Billie that she really didnt want to walk all the way down to the river. The girls had a blast swimming but Billie couldnt be convinced that they didnt need to get a bath after they got back. We were running late for our next activity but she was convinced that the river had to be dirty! No...this is clean water. But she made the girls take baths anyway. Fine...hurry. She can be so stupid. Then we went to Ft. Bragg. She wouldnt allow us to go up early enough to see the first concert because...ahem...she is pregnant and we would be there too long. She started getting witchy saying she was going to be home at 10. Ummm...fireworks start at 9:30. We live 40 miles from the base! Dont think so. We did manage to get there in time to see the second concert which the girls really liked and they danced around together which was really cute. Then we had to sit around for awhile until it got dark and the fireworks started. It was Hailies first fireworks and she was a bit scared and so was Keyana because we were really close but they both got over it quickly and had a really good time and talked about it all the way home. Needless to say it took us well past 10 to get home...lol. I am tired. I am glad to be alone now. Keyana has gone over to her Daddy's for the night. Funny....Tony just went over to Cory's to help him do something and Keyana wouldnt come home with him. She told him she didnt love him anymore because he was gonna take her to the hospital to get a shot! We have no idea where she got that idea...lol. I think she just wanted to stay at Daddy's house.
