Daddy Day

He's wrestles with you, he screams with you, he laughs with you, he shares with you, he watches Handy Manny with you, he lets you be all boy, he loves you so very much. He is a wonderful daddy and I couldn't ask for a better partner to take this ride with. We love you Daddy!
*AND....even though I know my Dad doesn't read this blog, Happy Father's Day. I LOVE YOU!!!! I hate that I couldn't call and tell you this, dang cell phones!

A Little Fun

As you can tell if you visit even a little is that I changed up the blog design. I would love to customize one with some Charly Bling but for now I will go with the free and cute chicks. It fits....
I found this on a create*loves; a blog that I've been hearting for a few days....there are so many creative people out there. It is amazing! Hopefully some of it will rub off on me. I've been lazy in the creative department lately. So is life...
Anyways, 10 questions! Enjoy.

1. When do you feel happiest?
Traveling with my little family. Rather it be driving to Freddy's to buy some custard or driving to OKC to visit is always fun to be with them and enjoy each other....all together! I'm also pretty happy when I get to be me....reading, shopping at a fun boutique or painting my toenails a crazy color.

2. How do you take care of yourself?
Read the last sentence in #1. Brady is pretty good about giving me "ME" time, so I jump at those opportunities.

3. Are you internally (by yourself) or externally (by others) motivated?
Both. I can pump myself up to do something but I also love to be inspired by others. Blogs, movies, friends, magazines, etc.

4. What do you do for fun?
*Paint my nails
*Walk around Target!
*Look at crazy creative blogs by women that just amaze me!
*When I have time I love to craft....I need to start doing that again.

5. What intimidates you?
Driving when someone I know is following me. Exercising in front of people. Sticking with WW. Motherhood when I am dead tired.

6. What is something you're proud of?
My little family and all that we are. I love US so much. We have our issues, but we have gone through a lot and are still together!

7. Finish this sentence. I never _____________.
have stuck with WW this long....I really don't want to give up now!
8. Favorite vacation spot.
Still to this day, I loved my trip with my grandparents and cousin to Colorado my senior year. I know that my little family will travel much more in our future, so ask that question in a few years.

9. Today is a (rate from 1 - 10).
8. Nothing bad, some good. I am healthy, my family is healthy, life is good.

10. Finish this sentence. If you knew me really well you'd know_____________.
...that I LOVE ice, that I move my toes when I'm watching TV, that I love to makes lists, that I could watch Sex in the City a million times, that I call my hubby-honey a lot, I want to be a children's photographer, I need curtains for my house, I knew I was having a little boy before we found out, I'm a pen snob AND I love doing crap like this!

Life of a Momma

It's been a crazy month on the momma front. We took Case off the bottle AND we are putting him to his own bed. We have had some crying, but so far so good. As I'm typing this the crying is coming to a halt and he will soon be in dreamland. We are also exploring the wonderful world of non-baby food. I love that he can now eat what we eat but it helps if he would actually eat it! I pray that him being picky does not last long. He is also exploring, testing and becoming more and more independent. Within two days we had a busted lip, goose egg on the head and smashed hand from the car door. God help me....

I know people told me motherhood....parenthood was going to be hard, but oh my. It is a job. A job that I LOVE but it is tough sometimes. The other night Case dropped a sippy cup on my little toe and it hurt like hell. For some reason I just started crying and it took awhile to stop. He sat there and laughed at me like I was being funny and not like I was really a mommy losing her marbles. It was just one of those nights when all I could do was cry. I called over a friend and she helped out for a bit....thank you by the way a million times over.

So yeah, it's hard, but worth every minute. Like tonight when we watched Glee and danced to the songs. He loves music. Or when we went out and I pushed him in his swing. His smile and laugh being contagious. He is a wonderful, awesome little boy. It's just that every once in a while mommy needs to lose her marbles....she always picks them up though.
