First Taste of Summer

Today is the first real taste of summer I've really had other the the extreme heat. Me and the family went to the beach with a couple of my friends. What a blast it was, even thou I got really bad sun burn on my back and it hurts like H.E.double hockey sticks right now!

The water was a bit on the colder side but once you were in it didn't seem to bother anyone too much. My daughter had a blast in the water. Which is great because the last time we were at the beach she cried once her toe (YES , her toe) got wet. My baby boy is a total outdoor lover and enjoyed his time outside. He just chilled out in the tent we propped up and even went into the water.

The greatest thing is my husband was able to be there with us, he barely gets the weekends off and this weekend he got to enjoy some much needed family fun time!!!! I'm all smiles even in my pain!

Playing catch up 5.26

So I have been extremely busy lately. With 3 kids, a husband, checking on my mommy site, helping revamp a blog, cook, clean, etc. I just have been not so active with this blog.

So you ask what have I been up, whats going on in my life? Well I have been sitting back and watching people in my life. Seeing who are truly there for me and not just saying they are my friends. I have had a few people really surprise me and I feel grateful that they are in my circle. I can just vent with them and they totally get me. THANK GOODNESS!

How about my kids? Well it has been a crazy rollercoaster with my 3 kids. My youngest is teething and not taking it well. My middle is just being her normal independent self. And my oldest well she has had a rough week. But things are getting better! School will be over before we know it and my oldest and middle children will drive me up the wall! I can see it now.

Now lets talk about this weather. IT IS TOO DARN HUMID OUTSIDE!!! I feel like I am going to melt right when I walk out the door! and the crazy storms we have had lately (kinda scary). I don't know whatever happened to spring because it felt like we went from winter to summer and skipped spring!

What is on mind? I am thinking about entering to working world again. Granted I love being a SAHM (stay at home mom). I am a working woman at heart.

I guess I am done rambling!! Have a good day!

Why is it hard

Why does it seem harder to trust people when you are an adult. I remember friends were so easy to come by. Now it seems utterly impossible to find friends these days.
I am trying to open up to people but it seems like they are being forced to be friendly to me in a way. I don't want friends like that, I want friends who like me for me, and understand me. I want someone I can turn to in a difficult time and just talk to and vent.
Is it asking much? I already know I am never going to lower my standards for my friends. They aren't really set that high to begin with, I need people I can trust. And right now there aren't many I can say I trust nowadays.

2 years ago

Alittle over two years ago, my husband and I welcomed our second daughter into the world. With her, I had a really difficult pregnancy. I was losing weight instead of gaining the first 6 months, and had morning sickness for about 8 months.
We weren't expecting her for another week but that morning at 6am, I had the urge to run to the bathroom and go pee. What pregnant women doesn't have to pee. Well it didn't feel normal like usual and I started to freak. My husband was getting dressed for work and was about to walk out the door and head off to work, and then I yelled "I think my water broke!". He told me to call my doctors office to see what they said. And sure enough they told me to go to Labor & Delivery.
When we got to the hospital, sure enough my water had broke, but wasn't feeling any contractions. I was given pitocin to speed up the contractions, and I didn't really feel anything. Around 11, Jocelyn left to go be with my parents. Once my husband got back from dropping our oldest off, I started feel the pain. I tried to hold off as much as possible.
Around 2pm I told the nurse I couldn't take the pain anymore. So it was time to get the epidural I was only 4cm along and was in so much pain. They came in to do my epidural, and it took at least 15 minutes, and the nurse forgot the pain medicine pump. I was sitting there with the epidural pretty much set up just was waiting on the medicine. By the time the nurse came back, I told her I was in ALOT of pain. She told me it was time to push! So in the 10 minutes from receieving my epidural, I dialated from 4cm to 10cm.
I started to push around 2:15...and several pushes later I was holding my 2nd baby girl! She was born at 2:26pm.
She is such a chacarter and we love her so very much.

I am finally feeling like I can live my life the way I want. I don't have to watch what I say or conform to a certain persons personality. I can finally be happy.
For years, people who were in my life (some not by choice) were extremely toxic and dragging those around them down into their miserable lives. They were making things uneasy for my husband and myself, and putting a wedge on our happiness.
I can't help that I am married to an amazing man, and you are left playing house with someone. I just can't help you get the things you want, I have my own life and family to look out for.

Well these passed few months, we have cut people out and I couldn't be happier. We don't have to listen to them say how they wish things were different and how they suck at life. Also trying to compare what me and my husband have to their own lives. How is that healthy?

To me there are two types of people in the world; Follwers and Leaders. I choose to be a leader of my own life, and not be stuck following people and being stuck in the dark. Some people choose that life, and that isn't for me. I choose to be the way I am, and really you can choose to accept me for me or just leave me alone. Its time to be blunt and weed out the fakers.

So my children are driving me insane these days. They are hitting certain milestones which can be over and done with already!

My oldest has discovered the art of tattle telling on her little sister. Yes even if she touches something, Mommy she is touching this, she is doing that. It is driving me bonkers! In the car I hear "Mommy, she is taking off her shoes." Its utterly a huge annoyance

Now my middle child is going to be turning 2 in two days. "Terrible Two's" is such an understatement for her. She is throwing fits, refusing to listen, beating up my 5 yo. Basically driving me up the wall. I feel like she is turning 25 instead of 2. My oldest never went through the "terrible two's" so this is so NEW to me.

Between the two of them, I should be completely drain!

So right now I think I shall scream, it will make me feel better!! AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! okay good now!

Mother's Day

Jocelyn comes home from school with a ton of artwork for me to celebrate Mother's Day. She also had to put together a book about me. My daughter knows me so well! It was so cute, one of the questions was "Your mother's favorite food is.." and she says "Potatoes". Yum I love some potatoes. What really got me was "What does you mom do.." her answer "Taking care of the family." I'm glad that my work does not go unnoticed.

I wanted to wish all the moms I know, a VERY HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

How did I get to where I am today thou? It all started in high school, I met this cute guy, and we fell deeply in love. Well after graduation a few months later guy and girl had their first daughter.
I traded my life of going out with friends for watching Dora the Explorer. I never had the real after high school life. While my friends were out partying at the clubs, I was at home partying with my daughter and fiance. While my friends were out getting drunk, I was at home cleaning sippy cups. But I've noticed that all that stuff Imissed out in, I would never want to do anyways.
A couple years later, me and my hubby decided we wanted to expand, and soon later we had our second child. Alot of my friends were graduating from college, I was graduating my oldest out of diapers. Also I was a working mom. Working 40 hours a week to help my family strive and grow.
And later at our surprise, I was carrying another lil one. And 9 months later, we welcomed the first boy to the bunch. Today I am a mom to a school age child, a toddler, and an infant. Can we say I have my hands full?!?
Now that may not seem like much to some, it means the world to me. Some are still trying to find themselves, I have found the man of my dreams and have the family I have wished for since I thought about having kids.
I love my life, and my again HAPPY Mother's Day!

Time Flies

My babies seem to be growing up way to fast. Especially Kristina, she may be my middle child but I can't believe she will be turning 2 next week. Where did the last two years go?

She is so smart for her age, it scares me sometimes. She doesn't realize her birthday is next week but I have to say I am excited. Her birthday party is next weekend, and I know that will be super fun. We are surrounding ourselves with friends!

I think we are going with a Spongebob theme, but not too sure yet.

The next thing you know Anthony is going to be a year old!

Time Flies!!!
