What a Day Yesterday!

Ok I was coming off such a great day and then bam, yesterday evening it had to come to an end. I literally mean bam too.

I was coming back from getting my step-daughter at then end of the road from the bus. We were talking about her day and I went to back up in the our long drive way. Its easier to back up then back down. Well all of a sudden I am in a ditch. I was so frustrated as I knew Scott would be with me also.

As many of you know I wrecked our van two months after getting it by running into someone, because I was paying attention to Madisyn. Now, we have a nice little dent in the back of the van. I just sat and cried. Scott was furious. My dad came to the rescue and we got the van out.

Oh well here is to a better day!

Until we meet again 🙂

Moms Need More Me Time

Moms are so busy with being a mom; they forget to take out time for themselves. Rest and Relaxation are two things for sure a mom needs to make sure they put into their daily schedule. This not only rejuvenates a mom, but also makes for a saner mom.

You know for yourself, if a mom is angry, upset, or tired, then the whole house is all in frenzy. Moms are for the most part in charge of making the house go smooth. We are either changing diapers, cooking meals, helping with homework, or spending mommy and me time with our children.

We are all about everyone else, so we must make sure to be all about us for at least 30 minutes a day.

What techniques can I do to help me give some me time?

1) Go in a quiet room and read a book or magazine.
2) Late evening, take a quiet walk in your subdivision or neighborhood.
3) Relax in your bathtub with bubble bath and votive candles lit all around the bathtub or Jacuzzi tub.
4) Work on a hobby like sewing or scrap booking.
5) Go shopping for yourself or get a manicure/pedicure.
6) Sit out on your porch swing and just collect your thoughts for the day.
7) Watch a favorite sitcom or movie on TV after the kids go to bed.
8) Call up a friend and have a nice adult conversation without kids interrupting you.
9) Write in a journal to get thoughts off your mind and clear your head for the next day.
10) Divulge in your favorite food and not feel guilty about it.

These are just some ideas to get you started on making it routine to take out some time for yourself each and everyday. You will realize how less stressful each day is. Also you are doing something for yourself and not for everybody else.

My youngest baby is now One

I don’t know where the time has went this past year. My baby is now one years old as of yesterday. She may have came in with a rough start (cord around her neck and had swallowed meconium), then 7 day hospital stay at two months with RSV, but she sure is a healthy one year old now and beautiful at that :). We are so happy to have her in our family. She makes us complete.

Here are some picts from when she was born and yesterday at her birthday party. Happy Birthday Lyndsee. Mommy loves you with all her heart.

Our day yesterday

I have been making sure we spend a couple hours a day outside together, while the weather is nice. Soon we will be snowbound in LOL. So, now I want to show off my beautiful babies. Our new sand place is so much fun. The girls just love playing and Madisyn adores Charlie. Also, Lyndsee has learned to climb our stairs and she goes up and down. Just smiles with delight when she does. It gives me almost a heart attack.
