I am a MOM!!!

I am a MOM!!!

  • Some days I feel like I'M the one that should be in time-out!
  • I think Mother's Day Out was one of the greatest inventions ever!
  • I desperately need a tan!
  • I desperately need to exercise!
  • I give kisses that make bo-bos all better!
  • I'm lucky to make it out the door most days!
  • I sometimes eat lunch at 3 pm because that's when I got around to it!
  • I bribe my child with dessert!
  • I LIVE for naptime!!! (my child's, and if lucky- my own!)
  • I have a song, rhyme, or poem for any topic imaginable!
  • I am a professional at giving people the "I'm so sorry my child is screaming in the grocery store" look!
  • And I'm also good at the "Don't worry- my child screams in the grocery store too" look for other discouraged mothers!
  • I find it very hard to watch TV shows or see those magazine ads about children with disabilities!
  • I'm still trying to figure out where my boobs went- if you see them, give me a call!
  • Daddy coming home early is music to my ears!
  • I rarely get through a phone conversation without disciplining my child!
  • I don't wash my hair every day (I used to swear I would NEVER do this!).
  • I don't wear makeup every day (two days in a row is a record!).
  • My typical day is a cycle of laundry, dishes, diapers, cleaning...and it just keeps going and going and going!
  • I hear the word "Mommy" about 5000 times a day! (Luckily I was used to hearing Mrs. Doyal about 5000 times a day so that got me prepared)
  • I constantly say the words "no," "come here," "don't touch that," "in a minute," "you're getting on my nerves," and all of those other things you're not supposed to say too much!
  • I own a tankini!
  • I lick my fingers to wipe dirt off my child's face!
  • I almost died during childbirth, but would do it again in a heartbeat!
  • I'm a little too addicted to Facebook!
  • I love to peek in my little girl's room and just watch her playing or reading stories or singing songs!
  • I never realized how BIG my love could be for someone so LITTLE!

Hello Donkey! What you doing?

Yesterday we went with our MOPS group to the local Jubilee Petting Zoo. It was lots of fun and the kiddos had a great time seeing all the animals.

They had lots of animals to pet and feed.

They had a playground- which, of course, was a hit with the kids! Just like kids- you take them to the zoo, and they want to play on the swings!!!

We also went on a hayride- which at some points was like "When Animals Attack!" The horses got a little frisky and were eating the hay bales that we were sitting on. One horse even jumped over the yoke of the trailer and almost kicked one of the moms in the head. Needless to say- the kids loved it- the moms were all a little freaked out!

At the end of the hayride, we got out and saw some more animals. I looked over and Bailey was squatting down in front of the donkey talking to him. "Hello Donkey. What you doing?" Priceless!!!

All Girl!!!

My child is all girl!!! She loves baby dolls, wearing high heels, and now has discovered Mommy's makeup. She loves to watch me put my makeup on in the morning. The other day, she got into my purse and tried out my lipstick...

So the other day I let her play with a few things of mine- the blush brush, powder compact, and her new favorite- the chapstick. This girl LOVES her chapstick. She calls it her makeup and carries it with her everywhere all day long. It's a battle to get her to put it up for naptime and bedtime. And she's quite good at putting it on too! All day I hear, "My makeup, my makeup!" Like I said- she's all girl!

Circus! Circus!

We have been circusing it up around here lately! Bailey had Circus Day at school and a few days later we went to see her very first Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus!
Circus Day at school had lots of fun stations for the kids to explore. They had jumpies and games and snacks and face painting. Bailey had lots of fun, but had a hard time saving her treat prizes for later!

This past Saturday we took Bailey to the CenturyTel Center to her very first circus. I was sure it would be a disaster because she did not take a nap that day, but she was a trooper and loved it. Her favorite part was the elephants- and luckily they brought the elephants out about 4 or 5 times so that kept her happy. David and I really liked the acrobats- they were crazy good!

"I go to the circus. I saw elephants and tigers and mans doing tricks!"- Bailey
