No Reason to Complain, but Sometimes You Have To

So it is my birthday this weekend and Jon is taking me on a much needed mommy break. We are spending the weekend in Palm Springs, CA. I plan on sitting on my booty and getting me some sun! So why am I so stressed out right now? Well for one, Sam is sick AGAIN!! This will be the 5th time she will go in for her ears. Is anyone listening when I say she needs to go she a specialist?? Nope. The nurse at the doctor's office even pointed out to me that I have been there an awful lot lately. Uh duh?? No one is listening to me!! So I plan on making it very clear today at her appointment that I want action. I also get to clean my house, fold the biggest pile of laundry in the world, pack, change my sheets, change the girls sheets, and do what I can to make it easier for my mom when she comes. So yeah I am a little stressed and I don't want to be. Please tell me that I can be Super Mom today and handle this in peace :)

My Baby

Today I turn in Julia's Kindergarten packet. It's official- she is going to be a big girl at big girl school. As I was going through it this morning I started to tear up- this is my baby going to school! Oh I am going to be a mess the first day I just know it :) I am so going to be that mom that cries at everything. Better get it out now since I am sure I will embarrass her in the future :)

The Moment

I have survived a week of having two very sick children. I am not going to say that I was a good mom through the whole thing because it is not true. By Friday I thought that I was going to lose my mind. But through the whole crying, snooty, no shower, greasy hair, yucky mess I was- I had the moment where I remembered why I wanted to be a mom. That moment where a 1 year old puts her head on your chest while you rock her to sleep. The moment where a 5 year wants to watch an old movie with you just so that you lay next to her. These are the things that I am going to yearn for when they are older. The things that are easily forgotten. So I will take my week of sick kids just to have these few precious moments because it is all worth it in the end.

Anyone know any good tricks when it comes to giving a 1 year old medicine? I have tried the whole pinning her down, hold her mouth close, force her to take it approach- oh that sounds kinds bad huh? She just spits it out. Dual ear infections folks so she needs to take it :) Any suggestions??

I Hate Sick

I have been puked on, peed on, snotted on, changed sheets twice, taken 2 showers, done poopy covered laundry, yet I am OK. Maybe this whole 2 kid thing is finally sinking in. Or maybe I just know that at 5 pm there is a martini waiting for me. OK who am I fooling- more than one :) oh yeah and as for Sick-PLEASE GO AWAY! I have a birthday party to put together on Saturday and you are not invited. Not even if you are bringing the chips and beer. Don't even bother. I am done with you :)


PS Sorry I am a little bitter :)

Happy and Sad at the Same Time

The Mini Princess is walking!! I am still in shock when she stands up and starts taking steps. And she is going to be a year old in a week. So happy that my baby is growing up. Just wondering where my baby went? It went by so fast! This is the last one for us so I am going to miss that little baby I used to have. So if you see me wanting to hold every single little bitty baby I come in contact with then you will know it is not because I am crazy.

Fake nails and I bleached my hair- what is up with me? I need a hobby or something so I don't carry out these crazy ideas in my head. Well most of them. If I did all of them our house would be a different color and Julia might have a bigger wardrobe than she does. OK well that is enough of my ranting for the day :)
