Birthday Celebration

Wednesday, May 26, 2010
Abby's 5th Birthday started off with donuts for breakfast, requested by the Birthday Girl of course. Then unfortunately we had to work so she went to school, but not empty handed.....she took chocolate chip cookies to celebrate her birthday with her friends. Then for dinner she asked for French Toast and bacon. Abby loves bacon and almost ate it all, Sean and I were able to snag a few pieces!!!! Our neighbors, Zoey, Kira, Steve and Jess came down to help sing and eat cake...the flip flop cake, homemade by Mommy and Daddy. Then nothing better than a little bike riding with your sister and friends to end a great day. This is a week long celebration for Abby....Friday is graduation from Pre-School and Saturday is the friend party followed by the family party!!!!
Happy Birthday to my sweet baby girl.

Time Flies....how many times in your life have you heard this saying? Not until recently did I truely understand the meaning.

Just 5 short years ago my BABY was born. She was perfect and she completed our family. Today she turns FIVE!!!!

She is full of energy and life. She loves to sing, fight with her big sister and eat her mac n cheese. She has clothing issues usually on a daily basis. She gives the best hugs. She has the most beautiful smile and can make some of the silliest faces.

She will graduate from Pre-school on Friday and start Kindergarten in August. She is growing up way to fast. My how TIME FLIES.....

Happy Birthday Abby!!!

What I have learned....

Saturday, May 8, 2010

about being a MOM.

* the best artwork is the art you kids make at school and you display on the frig

* you can NEVER get enough hugs and kisses

* the love you have for your children is like no other

* you pick your battles(rain boots with a pretty dress when it is NOT raining is OK)

* sometimes Mommies need a "time out"
* laughing can make almost anything better

* I love to check on my girls before I go to bed and watch them sleep.

* you can NEVER take toooo many pictures of your kids

* the littlest boo-boo is the biggest deal to a child

* seeing my girls after working all day is the highlight of my day

* the DRAMA can be out of control sometimes

* too much quiet ususally means trouble

* Mommy's kisses don't alway make everything better

* being a Mom IT IS HARDER than I EVER THOUGHT

* there are not enough hours in a day to do all you wish you could do with your kids.

* chicken nuggets, mac and cheese and pizza are sometimes they only things they will eat

* everytime I look at my kids I realize they are growing up WAY TOOOOO FAST

* Mommies don't always have the answers
* laundry and cleaning are NOT as important as having fun with your kids
* giggling kids are music to my ears
* using your imagination is the best "toy" EVER

* listening to my kids sing is the best music I've ever heard

* reading with your child opens up an endless world

* eating dinner as a family is priceless


This list could go on forever. I would love to hear the most important thing you have learned from being a Mom....leave me a comment.

Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms.
