Update

Noah, when I put him to bed early last night for fighting with Alex:  "Mom, I want to be nice but Alex just wont let me!"

Alex, when I scolded her and swatted her bum (that's how someone who doesn't believe in spanking justifies spanking) for trying to wake-up Noah for the 50th time last night:  Laughing in my face, "You spank my bum!  That tickles!" followed by more hysterical laughter.

Me, when I finished reading "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Buying and Selling a Home" and then contemplated putting an offer on a home next week:  an almost anxiety attack which I tried to fight off by laying on the floor and doing some deep breathing (while Alex yelled at me to get up and feed her her cereal).

Paul, on his last day as a medical student:  who knows, we haven't seen him all day.  He left before we were awake and still isn't home.  Yes, it's midnight.

I almost got the chills reading that post, I can't belive Paul's done and that you're thinking about buying a home! Wow! Time flies!

Great comments from the kids too, at least Noah wants to be nice, even if Alex won't let him :)

Oh my gosh, How exciting that he's done with school! Congrats! Your "updates" were so funny! Kid's are so funny sometimes!

I love the part about Alex laughing at you for spanking her bum, lol. I guess thats what you get for laughing at her and videotaping her while she bawled her eyes out in the bathtub. :)
Congrats Paul! What an awesome feeling that must be! :)
We are so excited for you guys!

I can't believe he's done! That's so great! Congratulations Paul! And so exciting about house hunting. Your panic attack had me laughing so hard because I can imagine it perfectly ;) You are so funny. I love the updates, you and your kids are so funny and I can't wait to hear about the new house and the move and everything. So exciting!!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! Can we call him Dr. Gunn now? Buying a house is a scary experience, but a really fun one too. Your kids are so cute. We miss you guys and hope you are doing well. Happy house hunting!

Summer, you have reached another milestone in life, no, I'm not referring to Paul's graduating from med school.....but the fact that you admitted to spanking Alex's bum, I'm proud of you. And I'm sure you'll agree that the three times I spanked your bum when you were a little disagreeable snot is what made you into the humble hard A you are today!

Randy and Tiffany said...

Dad...the three times you spanked Summer also taught her to spank her little sisters when she was mad at us...and then when we started crying Summer would promptly respond with an innocent, "What happened!?" So that she wouldn't get in trouble. ha ha, awww memories!

Dad said...

I know Tiff, I forgot to say that Summer lies, I should have spanked her more.

Anna said...

Last day as a med student! Wow, congratulations to all of you. You've made it!

Tillmann Fam said...

Holy cow you are DONE! That is SO EXCITING! I love reading your dad's comments, because they are so funny! I think your parents are probably SUPER DUPER COOL!:) Good luck with house hunting! You've got a lot on your plate right now, but it's all so great! Good luck!
And, of course, hilarious comments from the kids...they are so cute!

tracey said...

Wow, really done (well done with this part!)... that is so great! This year of Tom's residency has been so tough it gives me such a sense of awe and admiration for the med students wives. You truly are remarkable! I can see how the situation you were going through would definitely bring you together and I am glad you all had each other for support. Good luck with buying your house! How exciting!!!
