A pregnant 4-year old, Idaho, and Asthma

What do they all have in common? Nothing, except this is what comprised my day today.

First, the 4 year old IS NOT PREGNANT. This is our conversation from this afternoon.

Annie: I have a boyfriend.

Mommy: Oh really. Who is he?

A: Lucas.

M: Who's Lucas?

A: A boy in my class. (A is in Headstart.)

M: Ohhh, ok.

After a few moments of silence....this:

A: I'm pregnant.

After I stopped laughing...seriously was almost falling off my chair and I vaguely remember some snorting going on....I asked her if she knew what that means. She said no, so I gave the condensed, rated G version.

M: It means that there is a baby growing in your belly.

A: AHHH! No!


Idaho? No, Udaho. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That was funny. OK, seriously. Hubby wants to move to Idaho. Namely, Pocatello. There is a part of me that wants to go, and a part of me that doesn't. I don't want to move anymore. I am so tired of moving. But, hubby doesn't like Shelby and wants to move. I have driven by Pocatello many times, and honestly, I have always thought that I would like to live there. It looks like a nice town. But I don't want to move anymore. I am so tired of moving it's not even funny.

Pocatello Pro's and Con's


Closer to a temple
There's a Wal-Mart
It is almost EXACTLY halfway between my Hometown (Shelby) and Hubby's hometown (St. George)
There are actually craft stores and scrapbook stores
There's more stuff. A zoo, a museum.


Um, it means I would have to move

Shelby Pro's and Cons:


We have a home here. Our FIRST home that I love.
Nolen is doing SO good in school here. He continually brings home A+'s on his tests. He's only in first grade, but still...I am afraid he would suffer in a bigger school system.
My family's here. I could visit my dad's grave when I wanted.
We wouldn't have to move.


It is teeny.
Hubby doesn't like it here.
Nearest decent shopping is 85 miles away.
The streets roll up at 7 p.m. (local joke)


We have been told that my dearest boy has asthma. Well, we haven't been told for sure, but the doctor is 99% sure. The only way to check it for 100% is testing. He is on three meds: Albuterol, Advair, and Singulair. UGH.
