Where did the time go? How can it be October? The last post I wrote was back in March? It’s true, when you have kids time moves quickly.
And having four of them is still something I’m getting use to. The Mister has been really great with them. HE’S A ROCK STAR!
Here are the four of them on the first day of school, back in August. They all dressed themselves, except, of course, for the Baby Girlfriend.
They were all really excited about going back to school. Mr. C started 4th grade and Bakey started 1st grade. The Little Lady is ready for preschool, but we’re not quite ready to let her go, yet. The Baby Girlfriend is standing on her own more and more these days. We will have another walker soon… I am not ready. not. at. all.
In 2 weeks, I’ll hopefully be in bed sooner than midnight, so that I can wake up early to get ready to go back to work. TWO WEEKS. I am ready and not ready to go back to the grind. I have definitely bonded with my baby and it seems as if we’re finally getting the hang of things. I pretty much know her different cries, her schedule. It was quite a struggle in the beginning, but now, we’ve got it down. I still don’t think we, mothers, have enough time off of work to care for our babies. We really need more time, at least a year. Or at least work part time from home. Maybe, telecommute. Something more that allows mothers to be there for her young children and not be penalized for it. There should be more options for new mothers especially those who are not high paying executives who can afford the best for their children. You know what I mean… sigh.
I’ll leave you with my heart for today. Nature. The clouds were unbelievable on the 405 today and the traffic wasn’t bad either.
It’s 2015 and I never got around to saying Happy New Year! I can’t believe it’s already February. Life is just flying by. I’m still on maternity/family bonding leave and only have a little over a month left with my “Little Luv-Luv.” She’s acquired a new nickname as she’s gotten a bit older. Life with four kids has been a challenge. The real challenge is how I handle certain situations. My Mister has been great at pointing out my response/reactions to things. I really need to get a grip and act like the adult. I forget that the kids are 8, 5, 2… sigh. I’m the parent, the adult and I really need to let “it” go, yes, just like the Frozen song.
So, starting now, I’m holding myself accountable for my actions. I’m going to do my best to not yell and overreact to little things. I mean they really are little things. How much trouble can these kids get into?
I’ve been reading some great blog posts over at Toca Boca. I posted a few articles on my Facebook wall. Check them out if you get a chance.
One of my favorite posts is this post about kids and playtime.
I think we own almost all the apps Toca Boca has to offer. I heart their products. They’re fantastic!
My kids love to sing this song. It’s another song the mister dislikes. I don’t mind it.
My “Little Luv-Luv” has been quite a handful these days. I’ve forgotten what it’s like to have a baby in the house. A lot of my life has been completely put on hold which includes blogging. I hope to get out of the woods soon.
I leave you with my heart of the day.
I’ve been hanging out with these girls everyday. I better enjoy it before I get back to work.
Imagine if you didn’t have complete control over what goes on during your wedding reception… I would have loved this!!
I heart them!
Because it’s my first born’s 8th birthday today, here’s his favorite song of the moment. My hubby hates this song. I don’t mind it too much. The song makes me giggle.
I heart my boys, so whatever they like, I try to be open to it.
Meghan Trainor is easily one of my favorite artists. Her videos are way too fun, too cute and hysterical. The pink sequined animal? cat? outfit is funny. I heart her.
For 2015, I’m focusing on having more fun and not taking things too seriously.
