Do any of you have that? You know, feeling like you want to scream?? Well I do, a lot more often then I would like to admit. But I have found a solution for myself. I am going to be making a little project for myself this weekend and I am thinking some of you will enjoy it too! We have a few projects going on during Spring Break, I am way excited to get them done and share them with you! I just hope the kids have some fun too. I hope everyone has a great break!!

Just A Mom!

I got an email the other day from the kids' school letting all of us families know that they were hiring a couple of people to do miscellaneous things around the school part time. I applied and got asked to come to an interview, woo hoo!! I was a little nervous because it has been a long time since I have done an interview. The first thing she says is "tell me about yourself" I went BLANK!!
I told her that I am married and have 4 kids at home and I have been a stay at home mom for 7 years. She says "that's nice" and waited for me to say more. I did not know what to say....I had no idea what to tell her. I was ready to tell her why they should pick me for the job, why I am most qualified and so on and so forth. But when it comes to who I am and what I do, besides be a mom, I come up blank. I think it is safe to say that I have really lost myself, I don't know who I am anymore. What do I like, what do I like to do, what do I do when I am alone or for fun?? I have no idea...I am sure that I am not the only mom out there that has lost a sense of identity, so my question is how do you find yourself again? I need all the help I can get, any advice for me??

Your SO Mean!!

Am I a mean mom?? I guess it depends on who you ask, my children say ,yes, I am a mean mommy! I am so sorry that I want their bedrooms clean, and no I am not doing it for you. I want their dirty laundry brought out so I can wash it, and it had better be dirty. I expect them to put their own clean laundry away, even the two year old, and they pick up their own toys and junk. They put their dirty dishes in the sink and sometimes the dish washer, I have even had Haylee clean the bathroom, well more like wipe down with a disinfectant wipe, but she still did it. They know how to do things for themselves and how to help eachother. Does that really make me a mean mom?? Do you care to weigh in? But Haylee told me tonight... even if you are mean sometimes, I still love you:) I hope later down the road they will appreciate their mean mom.

If You Live In Stansbury...Read This!!

I heard today that there is a guy hanging out in the Stansbury area trying to get girls into his van. So far he tried in Lakepoint but was unsuccessful, so he has moved up here. He has been trying this at bus stops and I am sure he will try other places too. If you have girls of any age keep a very close eye on them. And keep an eye out for anything out of the ordinary, its time to be nosy neighbors to keep our kids safe.

Summer Vaction , Here We Come!!!

Do you guys realize we only have 2 months of school left?? It will fly by so fast!! Are you as excited as I am?? I cannot wait, I cant wait to be warm again! So what are your plans for summer this year? Any vacations planned or just hanging out at home with the kiddos? We have talked about a few things like camping trips and summer projects, but no solid plans yet. The only thing that is really set in stone is our garden, we are planning a HUGE garden for this year, I am so EXCITED!! The kids will love it, Haylee has wanted to do a garden for a long time, this year is her year. If I play my cards right, she might get a playhouse too, but we will see how nice Aaron wants to be to me this year:) We love summer I cant wait!! We are available for playdates too, so give us a call if you are interested.

Wow that went by so fast!!! I guess a lot is going on with us, we stay pretty busy around here. The kids are doing the usual, school and ballet, and are still loving it!! Haylee learned all about South America and Mexico and is doing Multiplication up to 40. She loves everything about school, except math, I dont blame her I am also a hater!!! Payton is learning how to read and is picking it up very quickly, I am so proud of him!! McCoy has learned how to say all of our names, minus his own, he calls himself Emmet too. He is learning extended families names now and calls Mitch and Madi caca bum. He is so funny, he keeps us all rolling!! Emmet is growing like a weed, he is getting so big!! His baby fat is finally coming in and he is getting tall to boot. He is crawling everywhere, getting into everything, and is trying to walk, it wont be long. He cant wait to get down and run around with his brothers and dad!! Aaron is still working and hates his job, but he is staying positive and keeps looking. He has narrowed it down to two schools, he is just trying to decide what he wants to be when he grows up. As for me I am doing the same old. I have our house and family in a great routine that is working, so the house is super clean and the kids are happy. So we have more free time then ever to play and hang out with each other and family and friends. Now we are just waiting for summer so we can got outside and play!! I hope everyone has a happy March!!
