Somethin' for the Kiddies....

More memories to get on paper....

Well, after four years of blogging about motherhood, I am proud to announce I FINALLY have this virtual mother's journal on PAPER! That's right, 400+ pages later, I have a book for the kids to enjoy someday and it feels SO good to have it in my hands. One New Year's Resolution accomplished - two days early! Ha!

Now that the holiday madness is over, the kids and I have been having a fun week being lazy in the morning, playing with Christmas toys, and enjoying our local gym pool. Matt and I even had a date night last night and were happy to have a non-family member successfully put our very "routined children" to bed! This morning, the kids were pumped to attend a half day "camp" at our local gym. They played tennis, made glittery snowflakes, and did more swimming. They were so happy and tired on our way home. Lucky little kiddos.

And lucky me, as I took a morning to NOT look at the watch while I did a solid workout, took a shower, got a pedicure and shopped around town for our New Year's Day gathering.

Lucy even got a call today from our previous, beloved babysitter, Miss Molly, who asked if she could take Lucy out to lunch and to get a manicure tomorrow. She about died when I told her about it. Lucy and Miss Molly look at each other as very special friends and I am so happy Lucy has a relationship like that with someone. I, of course, Lucy's biggest fan, love when people recognize that she's a spunky kid and people appreciate her as her own little person. It makes me proud that she can build relationships like that with people at such a young age.

These times and these breaks in "normal life" are a fun little treat I am learning to cherish even more, now that I have a little Kindergartner who needs to be out the cold, wintry door at 8:05 a.m. during the week.

Tonight we had dinner together at Chipotle and Lucy asked to sit real close next to me. We just snuggled quietly and chowed on our meal (we were starving!). She said something to make me laugh and as we looked at each other with huge smiles on our faces she said, "Ya liked that one?"
She is a hilarious person and sometimes acts way beyond her 5.5 years on this planet.

The little Tomma and I were watching Diego before bed tonight and he pulled my face to his and put both little, chubby hands on my face saying, "You are a wonderful good mom." and kissed me.

What a great year this has been and how lucky am I to be their mom!?

I'm a 39 year old stay-at-home mom. I have a 9 year old daughter and a 7 year old son. I have lived in the big city and in the mountains, but am happy to be back in the Midwest, raising the fam. I enjoy laughing, wine, bad karaoke, US Weekly, running, cemetaries, cheese sticks and short hair-dos. In my previous life, I was class-clown and a wanna-be comedian. In my professional life, I'm a journalism major with 10 years of marketing and PR experience. I dream of being a cast member on Saturday Night Live and working at Disney World as Snow White.
