Hello out there! I'm a wife and mom (and so much more). I started this blog because I'm sure there are funny, emotional, dramatic, sweet things that happen daily that I want to get out and share. Being a stay-at-home mom isn't easy, but it's definitely an adventure! On top of that, trying to keep my hubby happy and myself sane! I hope to connect with other moms and Christians, so feel free to leave comments!

Is It Possible?
So, I leave for a few days and my kids are these little people I’ve
never met before! Is this possible? Yes, of course it is! My 17-month-old is now saying 2 new words- cat and car. And
by saying I mean screaming them about and at everything. It’s quite cute and
only slightly annoying. I’m sure by next week it will be overly annoying
because of the amount of times I will have said “No, it’s not a cat, it’s your
shoe” or something to that effect. He knows lots of words but is only choosing
to say a select few and use them for several items. Again, cute, even if only
My newly 3-year-old was overheard telling his younger brother
that he was “E-dic-ur-lus” in complete exasperation over him climbing on the
table. Ridiculous is a word I use to describe him very often, so he knows
exactly how to use it, but never has before. My hysterical laughter only
prompted him to continue using the word throughout the day, much to my
amusement. His enthusiasm towards making me laugh was proof of him missing me.
Their faces even look older! Like they learned so much about
life by being away from me. A crazy thought, but perhaps it holds some truth. They
learned what it was like to have daddy be in charge. If walls could talk, I would
pay good money to hear what the ones in my house would say about their weekend.
Though I was pleasantly surprised by the clean children that greeted me at the
airport and the even cleaner house when I got home, I’m sure there were some
moments that mommy wouldn’t condone. I actually found a plate underneath the
sofa cushions last night!
Overall, I’m glad I took my mommy vacation. I enjoyed adult
conversation, bought a few new goodies for myself and didn’t have to play referee
in any toddler fights. I would definitely do it again, but next time I think I would
actually like to have my 3 guys with me J
