War, children....

today was exhausting.... Chuck left for work at 4, and as soon as the door shut the children went crazy lol, Macey took the paper towels and decorated the house and Emily decided to build a swimming pool  in our backyard! IN THE MUD! So after the kids were bathed (after the swimming pool boy did they need it!) and the house was cleaned and dinner was made and the kids ate, and I can finally see my break on the horizon...the girls would not sleep, Emily and I fought about the time and how she thought she was old enough to stay up all night, and then about how she needs to sleep without clothes because she has "night sweats" but she finally fell asleep. Macey on the other hand fell asleep about an hour ago (2am). and just as soon as her head hit the pillow Connor started crying... I keep waiting for this break... I don't think it's happening tonight!

Hello world I'm your wild girl...

What makes the terrible twos so terrible?
I understand why teens are the way they are with all the stress and hormones the have, but why is my toddler the way she is? It's not even two as it is the beginning of three.
Macey my little girl has been crazy lately, yesterday she flooded the bathroom. No matter how much I child proof the house she manages to either find a way around it, or find something that isn't child proof! She will be three next month and she has never been like this before, Emily wasn't like this at all! Don't even get me started on the potty training my goodness I can't make that kid use the potty or even want to! I have tried cookies and candy but nothing works I'm running out of options. If anyone out there has any experience or suggestions I would love to hear them!

Macey and her cousin Elliott
So it has been a while since I last posted... so much is different... We had our baby.. a 10 lb boy named Connor he arrived on Black Friday and he has been a joy ever since! NO MORE BABIES FOR ME!! I feel content to have my three wonderful children and I really don't think I can handle ANY more! We also moved to Fresno CA which is quite a culture shock from sunny SO CAL!!! I'm now a mom of three living in a place I have never been to until now! We have a house now though and I have become a DIY queen.... seriously I have not only painted my entire house but I have reupholstered chairs made pillows and oh so much more!! I have Also become quite the gardener.... I planted wild flowers, strawberries, Lavender, Jasmine, tomatoes, basil, and mint! Life is changing and I still don't know just how I feel about it! I'm not a complainer I just don't do change well, but I have started a new chapter in my life and I will try and embrace it! I have my family and we are all healthy and happy! Emily is now in kindergarten and she is doing AMAZING!! reading and writing above a first grade level!! Macey is about to turn 3 and she is refusing to be potty trained but I honestly don't know what to do to change that, everyday is a new battle with the "big girl potty"!! My husband remains perfect lol not that that's a bad thing in any way but sometimes I just wish he wasn't as wonderful as he is, because I really feel that I need to step things up and just right now it doesn't seem like that is going to happen! 3 kids is exhausting not to mention I stay at home and clean and cook! By the end of my day I just want it to be over!! I don't have time to be perfect!!!!! Well thats all I have for today... more tomorrow!

Aint no sunshine....

Well it is official that march is the worst month ever.....

I just spent the last 2 days in the hospital with a friend who had to give birth to her still born baby. I can now say that is the worst pain someone can go through... I cant even imagine.... she was almost 8 months pregnant. For those of you that pray... please keep her in your prayers!
Aside from the last 2 days of nightmare the 8th was the anniversary of my friend Andrew's death he died last year in a car accident at the age of 30.


My best friend Chris, his is on the 28th he died in a car accident as well at the age of 23.
and for those of you keeping track I am NOT pregnant!!! But 17 people now on my facebook are!
I will be happy when this is all over!!! I really have nothing happy to write but I thought I would update my blog and maybe see if anyone has some sunshine to share maybe it's not like this for everyone!!!
Sorry, I promise happiness next month!
