Mommy Moments!

This morning a few minutes before my alarm was suppose to announce it was time to wake up I felt some movement on my bed. I just continued to keep my eyes closed to see what would happen. I knew it was girl#2 climbing into bed because #1 had to be pulled from bed Mon - Fri and #3 can't get out of her bed. I felt her climb in and pull the covers over then she gently wiggled over to lay right next to me. I opened my eyes to see her looking at me. Then she smiled.

These are the amazing Mommy Moments in my life. I started to think of these moments and knew I needed to write them down. I do not have a good memory and I want to never forget.

When my girls first come out of thier bedrooms in the morning they have this look. The hair is rumpled,thier faces have a softness about them I always get a good morning cuddle and these are the best. They just lean into me and relax. During the day hugs are fast and they have better things to do but in the morning they are warmed hugs.

Girl #3 handed out kisses the other day without being asked. I was holding her and #2came to attack I mean hold her. #3 leaned over and gave her a kiss. My heart melted. This is genuine love for her sister.

Hearing Mom from your baby for the first time. #3 started saying this at 6 months I love it.

I was folding laundry and putting clothes on the hangers and #2 came and grabbed some and said "Mom since you are sick I will be your helper"

Saying dinner prayer the other night #2 prayed that her Mommy and Daddy would not kiss alot anymore. (she is a funny girl)

2 of my Brothers and 1 Sister in-law have served in Iraq. 1 Brother was there for a total of 3 years. We always pray that they will be safe in Iraq. #2 always prays "please make sure so in so is IN Iraq" it is funny how they change things. We have a friend Brian who got back 2 months ago and they are still praying that he is in Iraq. Soon they will remember he is home.

*****To many times I get bummed that people don't comment on this blog. I have realized I have been having pity parties for myself and nobody was coming.This Blog is for my family and the things that I write will one day be made into a book for us. I have changed my thinking and focus on what this blog is for. It no longer is here to validate me(silly I know) I hope you enjoy these Posts but if not they are for me and my children and I now know that is what matter.

Two Sick Peas in a Pod

I have been hit and run over by a Mac Truck.......I have been sick for a week. Girl#3 has been sick for 2 weeks. I thought hers was because of her fang coming in. (She has 2 bottom teeth and no top but her eye tooth is coming in on top we call it her fang)She has had a runny nose and just not been herself. I have had a cold fer 1 week and went to the Dr. on friday. My Dr. was out of town so I saw another Dr. at the clinic...that was my first mistake. I lvoe my family Dr. but anythor time I see someone else we always have to go back in because it is worse then thought. She told me that they were starting to not perscribe antibiotics for many things so our bodys will learn to fight it. So I left with a sinus infection and some over the counter recommendations. 3 days later I am worse, out of breath walking to the bathroom.

I met up with my friend Brandi for breakfest this morning who just got over Pheumonia (thanks for sharing)and she insisted I go to another Dr.Good thing I did. He says I now have walking phneumonia. Had I waited a few more days it would of been full blown. #3 has a sinus infection and they normally don't treat babys for it. He said 2 weeks is to long....Why do I listen to Dr.'s over my Mommy instinct. So we are both on antibiotics I get the strong stuff hallalua.

I took a picture the other day with my phone because baby and I were in bed sick. I sent it to Mr T in hopes of getting sympathy so he would come home to us but it didn't work. Because I don't want to scare the bejebbers out of anyone I will not post it. It was bad....

The point of this post.... I have no idea I am sick and it has spread to my head I don't even know if it makes sense.....

Cough syrup with codine here I come!!!

I have been thinking of the differences between Mommy's and Daddy's. Besides the obvious we parent completley different.....

Situation A

Any child that is in school needs to read or be read to for 15 min a day.In my routine I make this happen. Last night after Mr.T got home we headed to Brandi's house to take her dinner and so Mr.T and friend could give her a blessing. She has Pneumonia..anyway her husband is out of town so she wanted me to hang out then I would just drive her car home.I as most Mom's give my instructions to Dad....Have them brush their hair,teeth, put on Jammie's the obvious I know but he still has to be reminded EVERY time. When the girls know that Dad is taking them home they ask if they can watch a movie with Dad. They know how to play him. I say" it is to late by the time you get ready for bed and read it will be time for bed" I think since the Dad is in the room and part of the conversation he will do as I have "suggested". Will I never learn.

This morning when I wake up the girls they tattle as usual... We didn't brush our hair or our teeth. And we got to watch a movie...I ask if they read and that is a big NO. Because I love my husband and don't want everyone to think I am a mean wife I will not say what I told him so back to my observations. As long as kids go to bed they(Dad's) could care less what happens before bed. I know the importance of them reading everyday as well as brushing teeth and such,but is a miner unimportant detail that he always over looks.

Situation B

Girl #3 has always been a good sleeper. Lay her down and you don't hear a peep. Well she is getting a little older and she now is realizing that life will continue outside the door and she doesn't want to miss it. So as I have been putting her down for naps during the day I have to let her complain no crying just wining for a few monutes. Tonight she did not want to go to bed. Last night Daddy let her fall asleep in our bed next to him(remember I was gone) So tonight I laid her down and she started complaining. I just let her I reassure her she is o.k. then left. Between Girl #1&2 and Dad they keep telling me she is "crying" and I need to get her. I leave her. Mr.T keeps saying I'll just lay with her. I know what this leads to and I am not starting this. So I am in the kitchen and I hear that she has stopped whining so I am giving myself a pat on the back as she starts fussing again. Mr.T walks in and Say's"how can you just leave her?" I tell him she only heard him walk by and that is why she is complaining. He then tells me "no I was in there holding her and I just laid her down" AHHHHHHHHHHHHH
I think it is so funny how men or maybe just mine can't stand to let them fuss it out. It was breaking his heart. Me being a Mom knows how bad habits start and try to prevent them from happening. So I go back in her room tell her good night and make Dad stay out. After a minute of fussing she is sound asleep.

So my conclusion....
Good thing God created Mom's the way he did or this world would be full of cavity stricken,messy haired, illiterate children who have to sleep with there parents till they are 20.

Visit from the Tooth Fairy 8/10

The night before we left for California Girl#2 discovered she had a loose tooth. She was a little freaked out saying she couldn't eat or go to sleep with this loose tooth. Now anyone that knows this child knows she does not leave things alone. In the car all the way down she was pulling and twisting this tooth intil less then 24 hrs since discovering it she had it out. She now has a gapping hole in her mouth.

One of those Mom's

It is official I am one of those Mom's. When did this happen? When I had my first baby I couldn't imagine a day with out her then with the second the same. As girl #1 started kindergarten I was sad it was all day. I would say I wasn't sure if she was ready but really it was me, I WASN'T READY. So what has happened in 2 years to cause such joy as I drop #1 and #2 off to school today? The idea of some quiet,the things I will be able to get done without "HELP" My house will stay clean for hours. Am I a horrible mom or is this normal?

I truly love my girls and am thankful everyday that I was blessed to have them but I am still happy they aren't underfoot and fighting all the time with each other. It is how life is suppose to be this is preparing them for the future.(that is what I am telling myself to help ease the guilt)

Girl #1 is now in second grade she loves her teacher Mrs.Harris. She is a loop teacher so she will have her for 2nd and 3rd. We met her last night and she is so nurturing and kind #1 will do well.

Girl #2 is in kindergarten she has the same teacher as #1 Mrs.Garza. Last week they had a transition week where #2 went for 3 hours a day with no other grades. On the first day I picked her up Mrs.Garza said"she is definitely not like #1" Now anyone that knows my girls knows this statement to be the complete truth. But Mrs.Garza has figured her out...bribe with the baby dolls...smart woman.

I know that these hours apart will make me love and appreciate the time I will have with them, I am having a twinge of sadness that they are gone....but I will deal with it. Do you here that?....it's quiet.
