My family is really the reason I blog. Or have “reasons” to blog I should say. They give me inspiration. In the moment, “inspiration” can take many forms:
a headache- caused by having to repeat myself 18 times within 13 minutes
a huge mess – often caused by glitter and glue. or an elbow into a cup of chocolate milk that lands 6 feet away, or painting the cat red. ( accident “of course”) true stories
the most hilarious thing I ever heard- that day, week, or moment. i.e “Mom, dont forget your boobs” (says little noah as he hands me my bra, as im walking into the bathroom for a shower”
when life is just so crazy that you want to pull your hair out, but you realize that your family is preventing “bloggers block” for later,
My family gives me many forms of inspiration.
But so do complete strangers. Some of which I just want to slap. or drop kick in the head. except I cant get my leg up that high. and if I could, id probably pee a little.
So, the ones that I live with:
Dylan, our oldest was born in 2004. Often referenced to as the practice child. the night he came home from the hospital, we had no frickin clue what to do with this little human. He didnt cry, he didnt make a peep from the moment he came through the birth canal, until we were discharged to home. BUT…..the first night we get home with him, he decides to cry. and cry. then he cried some more. he added in barfing. everytime we laid him down. we changed his onesie, bib and pjs probably 10 times, and eventually, we put him in his bassinet with a diaper and a bib. that is it. lol. poor kid. The 2nd time around tho, we were BLESSED with two. So, we didnt know what we were doing the first time with one, so the next pregnancy we got two little humans at once. The nurses insisted we take both home. the good news, is that I learned to do lots with my feet. Oh, back to dylan. . He is smarter than me. No, really. He teaches me something new everyday. And while he is only going into 5th grade, he has a 4.0 GPA, is well beyond his years,BUT…. he can not wipe pee off a toilet seat.He can build remote control legos from scratch, but I have to remind him to put his underwear away, He is also at this phase where he doesnt want to kiss mommy anymore. I can kiss him. he will hug me. but he will not kiss me. That makes me sad. I believe that if I pushed you out of my vagina, you owe me kisses forever. Sorry bud- our middle child. Kind of. if you count being 3 minutes older then our youngest. Yep, they are twins. She
Grace- our middle child. Kind of. if you count being 3 minutes older then our youngest. Yep, they are twins. in true birth order fashion she is our middle child. if you count being 3 minutes older then our youngest. Yep, they are twins. but i dont think they realized what “twins” were until they were 5. She is nurturing, but fierce. She isn’t a little diva, but she has her mammas lack of patience.. She also can stomp up the stairs and slam a door like a female pro trying to get a point across. She has her mama’s two left feet. we have been in the ER for her more times then I can count. but that is a post all in itsself.
Noah- the last baby that will ever exit my body. He is the youngest, and the smallest. almost 8 years old and he can wear a 4T. hes a cuddle bug. wears his heart on his sleeve and when you ask for help, is he eager to lend a hand. he will come up to me through the day and just hug me and tell me he loves me. Then, last week,I heard him call someone a “douch bag” my heart stopped. i couldnt believe those words came out of that sweet little face. Not because hes “perfect” ( but bc me and his dad dont say that word) now if he said, “omg, how long does a FAST EFFING FOOD drive thru take!!!?” OR….why in the hell is there a pinecone in the living room? OR even, I wish this fucking idiot would learn to fucking drive and get the hell outta my way!
but douche bag? No. I dont think i have ever said that before. I kno i havent. except I do now. my 7 year old has me saying douche bag. (usually not in front of him) But that doesnt make my other choice words any better. It also seems I may have given him my OCD. but again, thats another post.
Dylan, Who will be six in a few days, and is in Kindergarten is Very smart. Very sweet. Likes being grandmas boy. Hates bedtimes. He loves fishing with Daddy. He loves hunting with daddy. He hates it when hes built a “masterpiece” and his younger siblings knock it over. He loves books and playing games. He hates getting up in the mornings.
Dylan loves skateboarding
Grace, Shes the oldest twin, by 4 minutes. Which this year makes her three years big. She loves dressing up, and putting on her jewerly and painting her nails. she likes having her hair braided by her good friend Tikki Harding. .She loves to dance and loves to go shoe shopping, she hates when she is playing with a toy, and her brother comes and takes it away. She loves swimming. She loves her new pearls daddy got her.
Gracie, loves the camera
our three beautiful angels
Noah Rylan, The baby of the bunch. Hes mommys little man. He wears his heart on his sleeve, He has compassion for others, but still doesnt like to share. He loves running around the house while you have to chase him, he loves reading books on mommys lap, he hates it when he hears the word no, and hates getting out of the bathtub, as he loves water. He loves his elmo blanket, and hates when it falls outta bed at night.
Noah , our smallest angel
How lucky to have twins!! We are Double Blessed!!!!
Grace, The oldest Twin, Noah the youngest twin. 4 Minutes Apart.
The Love Of My Life
I have been with Will for the past seven years. We have a BEYOND great relationship. we do not fight, we do not argue. we have gotten along GREAT since day one. we can alugh at each other, we complete each others thoughts and sentances. he still writes me sweet little love letters til this day, and everyday, without a doubt he does not go without showing me how much he loves me. He respects me, he loves me for me, he helps me with everything, and most of all he completes my heart. hes the best father to our children. I could honestly say, that I cant ask for more from this man,. He makes it feel like everyday, is mothers day in my life. Hes never let us go without, he gives us everything we need. and gives us what we want. He makes sure we are happy. 24/7. Will is amazing. . After 7 years, we still love each other like we first met. I love him very much. I could not live my life without him, I WOULD Be lost. I wish I could find the words to say how much he means to me. He is the owner of the keys to my heart.
