This is difficult…to busy living

For the last, I don’t know, week or so I have been trying to take some time to write another blog or heck just post something just to keep going on this. I am finding that it is actually very difficult to post each day or to even find an open 10 minutes to just not do a single thing. The reason this is so hard is because I am simply too busy living my life. This is not a complaint, this is amazing. I have this crazy little family, but it is my crazy little family. We are busy having a great time as a family. Ben and I trying to raise theses three crazy kids and well it is a roller coaster. It is three against 2 and the odds are in their favor.  

Ben and I are a great team. We take these three on like it is pure Donkey Kong time. The boys are loud, crazy, and never sitting still. Dinner is on the table ready eat, let’s go! Then it is back to playing, feeding baby, and watching the boys beat each other up. That alone takes the energy out of you. Have you ever watched your children, grandchildren, neices, or nephews just play? It’s ehausting right?

Then it is bed time. A time that parents get that one episode or that time to just relax, but any parent would know that this is only temporary. The kids are only quiet for a few minutes then they need another drink of water, or another hug and kiss good night (that you never pass up on) or are simply afraid of the dark. So up and down you go trying to get them to stay in their beds. There is the work out that you have been trying  to find time for :-).

Show is over and you have to go too bed, but this little human you created is thinking otherwise. Compromise is no longer an option. You take them to bed with you or they pass out on the couch either way it is time for sleep. I do love when they come and get in bed with us. We have never turned them away, but you do not get the sleep you normally do when you have space to spread out. 

Sacrafic and compromise that is what parents do because……..you guessed it, because we love our children and we want them to feel loved in every way. Yes each day is a new challenge as they are growing and learning. Their is so much going on it their tiny little bodies that sometimes they don’t even understand what is going on or how they express their feelings. They are what adults want to be able to do. Somedays I would love to just have a temper tantrum, but nope thats not adult like. You get it I am sure. They are our inner children and true blessings. So no matter how hard the day or how difficult your 2 year may be cherish each moment of it. They are little only for a little while.

Like Mother. Like Son.

Genson came up to me with his teddy bear and told me he was feeding his baby like Mommy feeds sister. It was just so touching to see him trying to do what Mommy does. It is not the first time things like this have happend. Carson takes my pump part and puts them up to his chest and Genson is always asking questions. These boys are just great!!

Good Ol’ Banana Bread!!!

Growing up my Mom was, and well still, always making banana bread. The house smelt so amazing after each and every loaf. Today I about had my baby toe smashed by a frozen banana and I decided it was time to make some of my very own banana bread. This is by far my first round of making the delishes bread, but my house brought back memories as I watch my husband and kids devour them as fast as they are coming out. 24 muffins, 3 loafs, and a cake worth.So worth the work and yes they are delicious.

A Day with Mommy 

Yesterday Genson and I enjoyed a day together in Scottsbluff. We both had doctor appointments and decided to habe a fun time together. 

After I picked him up from school we went home to eat lunch. I made his favorite, mac and cheese, and let him eat in the living room he loved it so much 

After lunch we headed to Scottsbluff. he asked about a nap and I told him he could sleep in the car. He told me he wasn’t going too but….

We finally got to the doctors and we went in he weighs 39lbs and is around 34 inches tall. He did great considering the last time he had a total melt down. The doctor looked in his ears and found a rock all happily snuggled up in his ear. Took about 5 minutes to dig out but he did great and didn’t move. Rock was about pea sized. With that he has an ear infection and a hole in his ear drum. Hopefully it is not too bad , but will have it checked out. 

After my appointment we decided to go get some ice cream to reward him for being so good and so very brave! 

We then headed home to go get his antibiotics and to go home. it was such a wonderful day with him and he was just amazing. Love you G!
