At Work... Can't Focus... so Let's Blog....
Totally done with work... my kids lives feel like they are zooming by and I sometimes feel like a bystander... I Want to have the emotional energy to handle the kids God has given me and work takes so much out of me... I don't know how you tell a boss of 5 years that you are throwing away his investment in you to stay at home with your family plus can we make it with out my income?!?!?!?.... I feel so stuck but my family come first... I really need to get the guts to leave....

Health and Happiness

Although we have been in the ER twice in the last 2 weeks (Anaphlaxsis and 3 stitches in chin)... I am just really grateful to God for the health of my family and the gentle hand he has watching over us to make sure we are okay and that he gives me and my family just enough for us to learn from our experiences but not too much... Just been reminded lately... and wanted to Glorify Him!

One of those Days!

Wow... Saturday was an AWESOME day...

My husband had to work unexpectedly and he was going to watch the kids help me with the Primary activity I was in charge of. EEEEK.

So I found a place for Jack to Go - Blessing- and she ended up taking Bailee and Bringing her to the activity- Blessing 2

Right before I had to go take the kids I was feeling REALLY nauseous and tried to shove the nauseous feeling away with food (my normal tactic... It's just what I do?!?!) and I felt worse and worse till finally I just startes puking. Full on body up heavals. Since I was there alone with the kids they all came in for the show... Bailee kept asking me if I was okay I kept trying to answer between body convulsions and Jack got a stool and climbed so he could see the action better.

I finally felt as though I might be done... not feeling well, but at least able to brush my teeth and I had to leave for the primary activity. Side Note....I figured out I had taken my medicine before I ate my yogurt... APPARENTLY not the best idea... (Ben's comment was... and we learned something from this :) helpful!)

So stomach still week, Breakfast in the sink... drop off the kids, and get to Church. Set up the activity...Run the Activity.... Normal Activity Chaos... over in a few hours... Quick Break down- blessing 3

Pick up my kids... put then down for a nap, they take them- blessing 4. Ben gets home from work. I leave for work and run into Ben's Car... yea I was in tears... I guess I just scratched mine and his was unscathed-blessing 5...

Get to work stomach still funky, feeling exhausted from my day... HAVE to get some work done but all I can think about is that I have Sharing time Tomorrow... So I plan that instead of working... THAN finally get some needed work done, but I had to take some home since I spent my work time on Primary stuff...

I put the kids to bed and then CRASHED.....

GEEZ... There was more but that is the jist.... God is trying to make me see my blessings.... And I am trying to see them!

I am so in love with my Kids!!!!

They just started their new pre-school and they have the cutest teachers. Jack walks in the school and immediately starts hugging every adult in sight... it seems everyone knows his name now and we have only been there 4 times total.

Bailee loves to talk about Mrs. Janet. She is the kind of teacher that wears baby doll dresses at the age of 50... she is really cute and loves the kids. She is also laid back which I like for pre-K, I am not the drill sergent type-if you didn't know.

As far as Jack, He just walks right into his classroom full of tearful 2 year olds and goes right to the toys after a kiss from mom... no problems... It really helps you know they are in the right place when the transition goes so smoothly!

I just am thinking how fast life is going today... Jack's Sweet slurred "I yoveyou teo" and Bailee and I cuddling last night and her asking to tell her stories of the prophet Jonah.... then Noah... When we got to the part about how Noah was in a world when all the people were wicked and made bad choices, she stopped and said she needed to say a prayer and asked for forgiveness for hitting her brother... Then after the story of Noah, she asked how God can see us and hear us... I don't REALLY have a good answer except... I don't know, but I know he can by the way I feel.

I love my babies!
