That backfired

Last night Sienna went to bed shortly after I picked her up, Alec stayed the night with my sister in law and Jaden and Brannon had football until 8. Another night to do what I want..............this never happens.
So I debated about getting Sienna up but she was so tired which means my night would be hell with whining and crying and three year old fits. So of course I let her sleep. I got a workout in, messed with the new DVD player, cooked dinner etc.

WELL...................2:30 my sweet angle is wide awake and hungry. So I fed her and got her to watch cartoons but every time something was on TV she would have to tell me

"mom, look at Elmo"
"mom, I want that"
"mom, are you asleep"

She finally went back to bed at 4:00am!
I will wake her up tonight if she tries to go to bed before 7!

Ironies of motherhood

Last night the two little ones fell asleep after I picked them up from the football field after work. They stayed asleep for the rest of the night. I got a good workout in and cooked a yummy dinner and then sat down to read parenting magazine and I saw a article about the ironies of motherhood and #1 on the list was

1. that you could miss your little ones so much all day at work but be unbelievably relieved when they fall asleep an hour after you get home.

I like #5

5. That you look forward to girl's night out for weeks-then spent it debating if Hannah Montana is a good role model.

I don't know how many times I spend just about the entire night talking about the kids. Get me drunk and I tell strangers how cute my kids are!! (Don't laugh Katie and Jamie........Newport)

and #10 is a big one for me now

10. Tough as it was when your child clung to you at the entrance to pre K, it's worse when he hisses "don't kiss me!" as you drop him off for third grade (changed this to fit me)

Jaden started football on Monday and doesn't really like it to much yet. I knew he wouldn't........I am him mom, I know these things.
First of all I don't think my kid has ever done a push up a day in his life, or had to run for two hours. So when he came home the first day saying "that is not fun", I totally knew why.

Jaden is not a confrontational type of kid at all. He hits his brother but that's about it. He hates when he thinks people are mad at him and is just not the aggressive type. I am OK with that. But football is not a sport for kids like that.

Of course his dad wants him to play and even got suckered into being a coach. He would never even tell his dad he hates it. I am not going to force Jaden to play if he doesn't want to but I did say he had to give it a few more weeks. He begged to sign up after I told him I didn't think he would like it.

I guess they have to learn for themselves. Should I make him stick it out?

They know now

I was trying to keep our Disneyland trip a secret from the kiddos but they know now. I couldn't hold it in any longer. Plus I convinced my sister in law that she needed to come with us so now they are coming! whoohoo! It will be so much fun. I am not sure who is more excited, me or the kids. We leave in a few weeks. Disneyland here we come!

Yeah baby

Yesterday was my huge seminar at work that I planned from start to finish (with another co-worker). I was so nervous because there are so many details that go into hosting a event. We had a great turnout (over 200). It was a HUGE SUCCESS.

My baby is 3

Wow, where does time go? The day I found out I was pregnant with Sienna feels like yesterday. Now I won't go into details of how I felt that day but lets just say I had a 7 month old and was not ready to have another baby. It took me a while to except the fact that in a few short months I would be a mom of three (hey I was just getting used to two). When I saw her on the ultrasound my feelings changed. I was on love with her....she was my princess. She came a few weeks early on the hottest day of the summer. My labor was super fast and intense drugs.
We all fell in love with her as soon as we saw her. The boys loved her so much! She complete our family.
Now she is three, bossing us all around.

Happy Birthday Trevor

Ok so we have a lot of July birthdays and it is hard to keep up. Trevor turned 7 this past weekend. I remember the day he was sweet! Happy Birthday big guy!

She is 13

Ok so my little sis turned 13 last week (ok ok I am behind on my blog). I can't believe she is 13. I swear it was just yesterday she was born. This is how I remember her

Now look what happened. She started growing and didn't stop. I wish I could freeze time for a little longer and keep her my sweet innocent little sister. I don't want her to grow up....but she is so excited to become a teenager (tear)!

Happy late birthday my sweet (haha) sister!

Alec-"mom when you get married, do you have to kiss"
Me- "yeah normally you kiss your husband or wife"
Alec "looks like I am not getting married"

5 minutes later

Alec "mom, I have an idea.......I will marry you since I like kissing you"

I didn't have the heart to tell him that he couldn't marry me. I am sure he will learn soon enough that he doesn't want to do that. haha
