About Me

My photo
I'm a work in progress. I'm a mom to two, soon to be three, awesome kids that have taught me things I didn't know I needed to learn. I'm married to a kind and handsome man that I genuinely love to be with. I like to be around interesting people and enjoy learning from others. I'm quirky, energetic, have a glass that's usually half full (of wine) and am spontaneous when it fits into my plans. My life is much slower than it once was and even though I sometimes miss the old days, I never take these new days for granted. So, I've given up alot of things in order to give more of myself to my family ... and they better appreciate it. I mean, I expect nothing in return for my selfless love.

She's sick!

Welp, Freya has a cold ... which explains why she's been so clingy and having so much trouble sleeping for the past few days. (My children always show signs of sickness like this before actually getting sick. You'd think I'd have caught on by now.)

I'm sad that's she's sick, but at least I have an idea of what's going on. Mazie is also sick. :( Poor sicky chickies.

Last night was good. Mazie was only up twice coughing and crying that her throat hurt and Freya only got up once. All three times were short-lived. Today Freya only cried for bout 5 minutes at nap time. Yes, we do some "cry it out", if needed. Don't judge!

I just realized I stated that only having to get up three separate times in one night was a good thing. My, how things change once you become a mother (or care for anyone that needs help in the middle of the night).

We're armed with vitamin C, Kids' Immune Builder, Kids' Greens and lots of snuggles. Here we go!

Last week I took the girls to the college bookstore/coffee shop for breakfast.
I said, "Ok, girls look at the camera!" and this is what I got ...

P.S. There is a large part of me that does appreciate and savor the nighttime cuddles!!! They pass so quickly. I just tend to freak out a little bit about setting up poor sleeping habits. Me? Freak out?
