How It Goes

Being a Mom is so much fun, it is all I had ever wanted to be my whole life.
I think I'm pretty good at it, but it definitely has it's challenges.

I have been so frustrated recently at the amount of forms, papers, instructions, events and HOME WORK that the boys bring home.

I always think, am I supposed to be teaching them?  Why am I even sending them to school when I feel like I am doing quite a bit of the work?

I cook every weekday, I have the baby, I am constantly cleaning up after them then so much school work!
For about 5 years I have watched an hour of  movie every night with the boys before bed.  It is our tradition now.
They love it.  I love it.  7-8 no one calls or texts, that's THEIR time.  If we miss movie night they get so disappointed they cry, we can't have that.
So everything needs to be cooked, cleaned, tidied, bathed, home worked all by 7pm!

Any way, point being I try to have fun with them, spend time with them, cook for them, keep the house clean, juggle a baby, jump through hoops, break up arguments, where does all this school work fit in?

I always wonder how working moms do it.  If I got home at 6 and had to do all that work I would probably go crazy! By time you cook its home work bath and bed where do you find time to spend with the kids and keep your sanity?

I really love spending time with them and I am making an extreme effort to get this home work done daily.  And keep up with all the other things I do daily.

I am really enjoying the children, as always, but it's so weird seeing Kaiden and Ethan run by playing then seeing Amalia run by laughing behind them.
It is so adorable how much they love each other.  They make me feel like all my hard work is really paying off.

Since I have gotten my new phone I haven't been using my camera much so I forced myself to take it out one day.
Amalia is growing more beautiful daily and the best part is she is more beautiful on the inside.
She is so adored and I am trying to get the boys to stop spoiling her.
Maybe if I show Ethan the picture of her torturing his puppies while he is at school he will stop! lol.

Beautiful Baby Shower

This past weekend was our baby shower!!  We decided to do it a bit early because I am one of those over-organized, over-prepared types.  It was hosted by my best friend Kindle and my sister Bianca.

I told Kindle I wanted a slight winter wonderland pink theme since it is so close to Christmas and this is what I walked in to!
It was absolutely beautiful, and we were joined by all our best family and friends, we appreciate everyone that made this such a special day for us.


 This game was to guess how big I was and believe it or not the winner was Ethan!!
He definitely knows his Mummy!
 The chocolate diaper game. (It was Johns first shower, he must've thought we were all crazy).
 Getting ready for presents!! (The boys got to open them all).
 Kindle surprised the boys with a gift each.
It was a shirt with their picture saying "I'm the biggest Brother" and "I'm the big Brother" for the hospital.
Most thoughtful thing ever!!!
I wish I could relive this day over and ov…

Star Wars Birthday Party

It's that time of year for the boys double birthday party!!
Since I... I mean they are so into star wars that was the obvious choice of a party theme.

It was so cute at the end of the party after the boys opened all their gifts and John says, "Well, what did Mummy and I get you?"  They both shrugged.  I said, "We got you this beautiful party, and that is your gift."
They both hugged us and said thank you without even complaining that we didn't buy them anything, such gracious boys!
Then John brought out their bikes and they went crazy!! It was the cutest thing.

Happy Birthday to our wonderful boys, Happy 7th and 9th Birthday Ethan and Kaiden!






















Welcoming Spring

Going from living in Jamaica where Spring is Sun and sand, to Georgia where spring is pollen, to Dubai where it is sun and sand to Illinois.
Let's just say I was not expecting a massive snow storm!
I have never experienced snow like this in my life!
Amazing what a difference 9am to noon can make!
This is how they do spring here it seems!

We had so much fun!
Lots of games with the kids, just dance 3, wii golf etc.

Of course John took the boys out to make a snowman and snowball fights and even gave them a big job to make a little money.
I don't know how they handle the cold so well, it truly amazes me how long they can stay out there and be completely okay.
I of course stayed inside, I do not like the cold, not one bit.  I do enjoy watching the snow from the windows though, it is so beautiful.
I even fell asleep on the carpet in front of the fireplace!

We did have a small mishap.  Kaiden decided he wanted to warm up his pillow pet and it melted on the glass on the fireplace!
