Have to admit that I give it up to all you moms that stay at home with the kiddos 24/7!!!! Oops not leaving the stay at hone daddies can’t forget about you guys. Staying at home and dealing with the kids. Is it just me or do they sometimes drive you a little crazy!!!
Today is the last day of springbreak and I can not lie I am happy!!! Does that make me a bad parent???? They cleaned up my fridge and I don’t mean that in a dish rag and soap kind of clean up neither I mean my fridge is empty my cabinets cleared out food is gone!!! Being a mother of two HUNGRY boys is no joke!!!! Boy they are always hungry…. Where does all the food go????? They just swallow it up I mean do they even taste it??! But not only that the constant “I’m bored”, “what are we gonna do today?” questions. I wish I had spring break off too. I’m so thankful for school. Spring break down now dreading the oh so long summer break. Definitely not looking forward to that. We have two vacations set up and we are driving!!! What was I thinking lol!!! 19 hour drive. If Wisconsin wasn’t bad enough. But hopefully with the new bigger vehicle we had to buy and more planned road games hopefully this vacay will be a success. Will keep you updated and post about all my roadtrip ideas and see if they worked.
Well where can I start?…..
Well to start off I was a teenage single mom of two boys 2 years apart. Growing up and trying to raise toddlers well… it was hard. I don’t think I could have the energy to do it all over again. I remember one time both my boys were throwing a tantrum and i’m sure you could tell I was stressed because this older lady came up to me while I was holding my oldest by the hand trying to keep him from throwing himself back and trying to pick up my baby off the ground while screaming. STRESSED… Well she told me “…don’t worry sweety it gets easier once they are older.” Wish I could find her and tell her she lied to me!!! Teenagers suck!!! I would trade everything to be able to go back to spit ups, dirty diapers and the terrible 3s!!! It should really be TERRIBLE TEENS Lol. Being a mother of boys you get to learn alot. The rough housing thinking you’re baby might get hurt playing with his friends. The sports they play. Wow They grow up quick to be these handsome young SMELLY men. Watching these two grow up right before my eyes is amazing. Being a parent is definitely the most rewarding but yet the most heart breaking. Dreading the day they move out. Ugh will it be hard??? As hard as raising them Lol???
Well I recently came across Scentbird and I absolutely love it. I’m not really the type of girl to be out in the mail trying to figure out what perfume nor have the time or patience to new standing there spraying and smelling anything. Every time I end up buying a perfume I swear it smells so differently by the time I get home. So when I found this Scentbird I was super happy. I can try a perfume out for a month before going shopping looking lost cause let’s be honest I’m not a typical girly girl. But enough of that so Scentbird is not only cheap they have a referral that for every friend that signs up gives you a free month. So far I’ve gotten 3 vials and have only paid for one. My sister’s just love this too!!! It’s a win win. It you wanting some new smell goods you should definitely try Scentbird

Here’s my link so you can get started too!!
Youth is such a beautiful thing that many of us don’t take advantage when we are younger. Don’t get me wrong I still considered myself young at 30. But I do remember the times still living at my parents where I was so eager to just grow up. Now with working daily to just to pay bills I definitely wish I was young again. To a time where I had no worries no responsibilities yes that would be nice!!!! I think most grownups wish that at times lol. Youth yes it’s such a beautiful time.
Todays daily prompt Moon took me back to when I was a little girl. My mom would sing this song in Spanish about a widowed cat meowing to the moon. Out of all the songs she would listen to this one is the one that stuck more to me. Loved listening to the violins and trumpets. I found a YouTube video of the song, it is in Spanish for those who don’t speak or understand sorry. the name of the song is “El gato Viudo” by Chava Flores
Today’s daily prompt word is
Carry First thing that comes to mind is a mother carrying her child for the 9 months. Its the most beautiful thing to be able to experience. I’m not a poet or pretend to be but found this poem that I just love.
“To My Unborn Child
Published on February 2006
To my unborn child,
what I wish to give you in times to come,
happiness, and wisdom,
a life filled with fun,
to explore all adventures of your curious mind,
to become knowledgeable of what you’ll find,
as I await your arrival and the presence of newborn cries,
I picture how you’ll look when I open up my eyes.
I feel your movements every time I wake each day,
letting mommy know that you’re okay,
obstacles I hope you’ll overcome,
education I know you’ll get done,
I stay up late reading to you,
talking to my stomach,
a feeling I never knew,
hungry all the time
‘No doubt you’re a son of mine’,
You make me feel happy even when I’m sad,
because the formation of another life makes me glad.
Proud of you I am,
I already know how you’ll be,
a smart ‘lil’ man for mommy to see,
no worries from me a mom to be,
to a special baby boy I can’t wait to see.”
