Addison loves me

"mama, do you know what I love about you? I love your smooth skin, your big, wide teeth (not white, wide), how your nose doesn't have boogers, your fresh smooth hair, how your eyebrows don't have extra hairs, just the ones in the eyebrow line, and how when I look into your eyes I see rainbows."

This is word for word.

Muffins With Mom

On Wednesday morning, Addison's class hosted "Muffins with Mom". It truly was one of the best mornings of my life. Sounds crazy, but true. The kids were all so happy and proud to serve us breakfast, and Addison and I enjoyed the time we spent cuddling while she was in my lap. Mrs. Haedge had asked each of the kids a group of questions and read the answers aloud to all of the kids and moms. Here were my answers:
Some of the funnier ones were "my mom is 68 years old" "my mom is prettiest when she goes out and parties with her friends" (!!!) "My mom likes to get a babysitter and go have dinner alone". Haha. KIDS! Then the kids put on a play... so cute. I missed the first part of it trying to get my phone to switch to video mode, and of course Addison was first.  Video should be here: (I hope)

 I love my sweet, fun, sometimes shy, sometimes crazy almost 5 year old!  She's my whole world!

I have to brag on my "other" babies, my Rising Stars.

Remember Me?

Oh! Hey, girl!! What's been going on?! Oh, me? Not much. Just NOT blogging for a month and a half.

What the ?!?!

I'm sorry, y'all. I don't know what to say. Life is busy. It's competition season. My kids are in a cycle of sick, passing each others germs back and forth and back and forth. Well that AND I got a new iPhone AND a kindle fire for Christmas. The fact that I never use my laptop anymore paired with my crazy busy family and business... blogging has not been a priority.

I know I need to get back on the blogging train. Instead of trying to play catch up with everything that's happened over the last couple of months, I am going to jump right in and pretend I never left.

Aiden is sick. Was diagnosed with strep, double ear infections AND a stomach virus on Friday. Poor lil bubby. He was so sick. He's much better now but still runs a low grade fever and is fussy and irritable. So I'm taking him back to the doctor this afternoon.

Addison has been eating us out of house and home and is now solidly wearing a size 5 in clothes. She's growing up so much and I just really don't think I like it. :(


Here's a list of books I've recently read:

Not a Star by Nick Hornby: LOVED IT
Then Again by Diane Keaton: LOVED IT
Your Voice In My Head by Emma Forrest: LOVED IT
Carry Yourself Back To Me by Deborah Reed: LIKED IT
Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (and other concerns) by Mindy Kaling: LOVED IT
Seriously... I'm Kidding by Ellen Degeneres: DID NOT LIKE IT

And right now I'm reading 11/22/63 by Stephen King and I LIKE IT. I'm not sure I love how elaborate Mr. King gets, it feels a little *wordy*, but the story is great. It really is a great read.

Addison and I went to Houston this weekend to attend Katy Kalz's wedding. It was such a fun girl's weekend with ginger, her girls and Bess. Melissa and her family were there too, but they didn't stay the night. Angel and Jennifer came to visit the hotel and we had a fun pajama party in the hotel! Addison played chutes and ladders with the kids and we grown ups had so much fun visiting and catching up!! It was a FUN weekend!!!

So I'm doing a cleanse. Actually, mike and I are doing a cleanse. Nothing crazy. Just avoiding refined foods, dairy, etc. And taking herbal supplements to help move things along, if you will. I'm on day 4 and just blew it by inhaling a bagel with butter. Omg I'm so mad at myself and I feel SO gross.
