About Me

I am a single mother of two wonderful girls! Life is such a roller coaster so I figured I would blog about things that happen day to day. I hope you will come on the journey with me!

OMG What is that!


Sorry I have not updated in a while. Working takes up a lot of my time :) but I love it!!!

So the other day I was holding my 7 month old in the rocking chair while we were all watching tv. My sister goes.. "her diaper is falling off". Well it was, one side had come undone.. little did I know that she was poopy!! AAAAAAAhhhhhh! It got on my shirt and pants! It was quite a mess...

Yesterday we had a Pirate themed Father's Day. We all dressed up and had a great time! My 7 month old was such a good sport. We put a mustache on her, a bandana, pirate hat, eye patch.. she didn't really mind any of it(except when I took the mustache off because it was sticky).

Today my 7 year old starts her week of Zoo camp. She is excited but being a whiney baby right now. I think she is still tired... hopefully she will be better when she gets to camp.

Today my 7 year old and I had mother daughter time. We went and got our nails done. This was the first time for both of us to get a pedicure. I got a full set and she got her nails painted. She chose a bright pink color with a flower on her thumbs and big toes. I got a pink color on my toes and white tips on my nails. She loved having her feet in the water, she said it felt like she had socks on.. ha ha. When they were massaging her feet it tickled her and she kept giggling. It was very cute. :) We both had a great time! Before they were even done she turns to me and says "we must do this again soon". Then after we left she tells me we should do this every month. Kids have no idea how much things cost.. ha ha. It was a great time together! Now she is off playing dress up :)

So today was my first day back in the work force. It went very well and I already love my job! It is similiar to all my other jobs and the people are so nice! I am learning the ropes and so far so good :)

Today my 6 month old is now 7 months old :) and went to daycare for the first time. She was a little fussy in the morning but she was most likely just tired because she is not used to getting up so early. They ended up having a fire drill today. What they do is stick 3 babies to a crib and roll them outside. Well they put mine with a 3 month old and my daughter decided it would be fun to suck on the other babies hand instead of her own for a bit.. haha. Everything goes in the mouth these days!!! When I picked her up she was in an exosaucer and was having a great time. I am so glad that she did ok being away from me, I was worried she was going to cry most of the time. This morning while getting things ready I was almost in tears. Not because I was starting a new job but because my little baby was going to be in a new place and away from me. I am so used to her being by my side it was hard. I knew she would be ok and she was! They love her there already just like they loved my 7 year old when she went there :) I love this daycare and the people in it!

When we got home my 7 year old ran up to me and latched on telling me how much she missed me. My sister said she was asking when I would be home already at around 10 this morning.. ha ha. I said to her you were in school and didn't miss me.. why now? She just held on to me :) It is nice to know my babies love me and miss me when I am gone!

So I have joined a club volleyball team. It starts in a few weeks so I had to start working out since I am so out of shape! I bought a volleyball the other day and have started playing against the barn wall. My arms and abs are sore from just two days so far! My poor muscles are so used to doing nothing.. haha. I decided that I would start doing laps in the pool for exercise as well as walking in the evening. I did some laps a little while ago but now I am a little dizzy. Not really sure why that is.. I am assuming it is because my body is not used to physical activity. I checked my blood pressure and it was fine, I checked my blood sugar and it was fine. The only other thing I can think of is perhaps my iron is low. I really need to drink some more water and less diet coke :) I am probably going to go walking tonight when it cools down a little bit. I can't wait to be in better shape and it will also make me feel better. Too much sitting around doing nothing for toooooo long!

I start my job tomorrow and I am soo excited! I can't wait to start working again. It will be so nice! My 6 month old will be starting daycare. I am sure she is going to love it! She will get to be around other babies which she has not experienced. She has only been around older kids so I think it will be good for her. Hopefully she will be ok with my not being there though. We will see...

Kids, jokes, and grandmas

So my 7 year old got back last night. She was telling me how the security guy asked her a question when she went through the check. His question was "What kind of music do mummies like". She said "wrap" which is the correct answer. Well my sister goes, "I don't get it.." ha ha. I explained it to her and then she got it! :) We will leave her name unknown for her own protection..lol

This morning my 7 year old sneezed and my 6 month old laughed. So she kept fake sneezing and she kept laughing. She was laughing so much and so loud that we heard her in the other room. It was sooo adorable. She is laughing again while my sister fake sneezes. Who knew sneezing could be so funny and entertaining.

We went to my grandma's house today to visit and the kids went swimming. She loved seeing everyone and liked watching them swim. She held my 6 month old which she loves to do. I am glad that we were able to cheer up her day a bit. :)

Yea me!!!

So today I had an interview. It went great!!! The company seemed like a nice place to work and the people were very nice. She told me that she had another interview tomorrow and they would let me know either way. Well about five minutes after I got home from the interview she called me and offered me the position! Of course I accepted and start monday! I am soooo excited! My 6 month old will be going to daycare while I am at work. I am sure she will love it. She will get to be around other babies. I am going to miss her and I hope that she will do alright without me there. As most of you know she is rather attached to me, but I think that after a few times she will be ok.

My sister watched her while I went to my interview and she painted her toenails. They are pink and glittery. They look adorable!!! There is something about chubby little baby toes that make it more cute :)

My 7 year old is coming home tomorrow. I can't wait to see her! I have missed her!!! It is just not the same without her here..

The dogs are following me around totally lost. They don't seem to know what to do with themselves while their mother is away :) I know they are going to be super excited when my mom gets back!

The fat cat got out a little while ago. I went to grab the squirt bottle to get him back in but he was gone. I have no idea where he is hiding out there. Hopefully he will be ok.
