about us...

I'm The Mommy, a SAHM to Maggie & Ellie. I'm married to Big Daddy, an engineer, grad student and our hard-working provider.
I blog instead of scrapbooking in hopes of preserving a part of our life for the future.
We enjoy beach trips, going to Church and spending time together...all as a family...because that's what we are.

Over My Head - With Pictures

For some reason I cannot get myself together these days. I blame it on the kids or the fact that I'm getting less sleep per night than ever. Luckily, for the most part my sleep is uninterrupted. I'm starting to think that it's just the way things are and I should get used to it. I feel like I'm in over my head, but it's just life.

We have added another day of preschool and it has thrown my whole cleaning "schedule" off. I really just clean when things get dirty (umm...every single day) but I used to use Friday mornings as the time to make sure that everything was clean and I'd steam mop the floors during nap. For some reason, I'm off.
Lucky for me, I have a little help!
Ellie has become a total daredevil lately! I have to really watch her because she will climb on anything. I cannot even count the number of times I've had to get her off of the kitchen table while I'm cooking dinner over the past couple of weeks. I had to move her highchair further from the table because she tries to move the table enough to make Maggie's milk spill. Just yesterday, I caught her trying to do the same thing to our very heavy dining room table. Her new nickname is "Hercules"! All of that being said, I get nothing done around the house while Maggie's at preschool.
She looks sweet and innocent, but she's a handful!
Once Maggie and Ellie are in bed (and asleep) I fold laundry, wash dishes or make pancakes for the next day. I also use this time to watch tv and if Big Daddy isn't too busy we watch tv together (while I fold laundry). More often than not, his nose is stuck to the computer screen or he's upstairs reading for school. If that happens, I enjoy alone time.

Now...a few pictures of my lovelies!
Maggie on her way to the grocery store. She decided to wear her Halloween costume. She's Aurora/Sleeping Beauty, in case you didn't know.

I'm not sure how this happened, but Maggie & Ellie ask for hair bows after they get out of the bathtub. So...they run around in pajamas and hair bows!

I feel like I go to preschool just as much as Maggie does! Last week we had "Picnic Day" and this week it's a field trip to an apple orchard.

This is a picture from last Monday when Maggie was taken to school by her Daddy. One of the highlights of her week!

I remember those days of climbing non-stop. Oh wait...we are still there. I think Andrew started around 15 months. The only time I've gotten a not negative but not all positive report at church, it was because he wanted to climb and slide on the tables. He's constantly trying to climb on the island or counters while I'm cooking and he'll use anything to get up there. Drives me crazy. Get used to it because it will last a while...

Very fun! Gooner hasn't started climbing THANK GOODNESS! She's content to read books and play in her kitchen. She does look sweet but as a sparkle in her eye!!!!
