About Me

My photo
Hi everyone, thank you for visiting my blog! Let me tell you a bit about myself. First I'm a wife then a mother of two (a 5 & 1yr old). I love to share my experiences, thoughts, ideas, questions really just about everything, lol! I want to be a positive motivation by sharing what I go through. You never know what I'll post, believe me, sometimes I blow my own mind. Having children = never a dull moment. Through it all I try to take one day at time remembering to keep breathing through it all :)

Valentines Day

Valentines Day, ugh no Valentines weekend! Greedy right?! Lol. We've had an amazing weekend & I don't like that it's over, it saddens me. We are going to be married for 12yrs so this year we didn't "go all out". I was scheduled to go in for a massage but I cancelled it. Yes, I know crazy. I just wanted to be with my family though. Friday we did are typical family movie night. We ordered pizza & got dessert. Saturday I got a pedi, took the kids to the park, watched a kids basketball game & got supper. Today, we watched a movie before church, then church, hubby bar-b-qued and I played with the boys while he did that. The kids absolutely loved being outside playing and watching dad que. By far this was the best Valentines! Last year I was so sick I had Pneumonia and Bronchiolitis! Thank God this year didn't play out the same. This year was simply perfect! It's not all about the flowers, chocolate or the big ole' stuff animals it's about showing love. Sometimes we get wrapped up and forget so show even tell the special people in your life you love them and Valentines is the best time to do it. Doing something special goes a long way vs buying them something expensive.

Goals for week of 2/9

   Last week I didn't make it to the gym since my baby boy wasn't feeling well then my oldest got Pink Eye. I workout in the mornings after I drop of the oldest and the hubby because this is the only time that would be convenient for us. I should workout at home but when the little one is awake it just won't be possible and once he's down for a nap I need to mentally rest to be able to continue on with my day!

Goals this week
Workout 3X
Cut coupons

To pray more
Make me time
Try sewing

The sewing machine has been a little intimidating to me but today I found something that needed to be sewn. Now it didn't turn out great but it also wasn't bad for my first time. The line wasn't straight but hey I sewed something, I'm proud!

My child, my patients....

   I have been really having a hard time with our little one that I was at the point that I had no clue what to do! I was in tears Saturday because all I wanted to do was pull my hair out. He is completely different then our first that everything I currently do doesn't work. If you spank him he doesn't cry. You talk about time out, he puts himself in it. You talk to him and nothing. He takes his clothes off, takes off his diapers and throws them even if he has poop in them, he climbs out of his play pen, he hits his brother, the list can continue but I think you get the point. No matter what we say or what we do nothing! I'm with him all day every day so you can imagine how I can get to a breaking point. I woke up today with a whole other mind set though. God won't put more on us then we can bare. this helped have a better day today. I was talking to the hubby about how parents abuse their children (various ways), kill them or abdomen them because they just can't handle what a child gives out. Some of these parents have great children that do typical children things but some people want robots or something. God gave us Bud Bud because through it all we will make it. We've been through some hard times and one way or another we make it through. So God choose us to be this little boys parents because he knew we could handle it. Sometimes yes I want to pull my hair out, go get a drink or need time for myself but I will never leave my kids and will always be there for them.

I tell you this not for judgement but for encouragement. We all enjoying knowing that we are not the only ones going through a problem with our children. I know I do! When I talk to my girls and we exchange stories we have a sigh of relief and I want you to take your now. Our children are imperfect just as we are.

Workout 3X this week

Learn about essential oils
Keep focused on 5K

Last month I didn't look into oils but I I'd like to start learning slowing. Living healthy is a lifestyle and a choice. I don't eat organic as it's a little too pricey for me but I try to buy natural and make healthy choices as much as I can. There is a lot to learn about oils and eating healthy and that's why it's a lifestyle!If you don't make it a lifestyle then you'll stop and be ok with it. If you have any tips, suggestions, or ideas please share. Sharing is Caring :)
