Your buggin'

I think that I was so excited to have the kids back after this weekend that I've been smothering them--a little too much attention and affection--because today, Abby put her hand up and said to me, "Mommy, you're buggin' me. Mommy, you're really buggin' me." I just sat here and laughed--hard. How is it that my sweet little two and a half year old is talking like such a grown-up? Where does she come up with these things???????

Missing What?

This weekend, the kids were at grandma's house and the house has been eerily quiet. I'm not quite sure what to do with myself without having to pack a diaper bag, make sure the stroller is loaded in the car, put 2 kids in their car seats, ask myself, "so I have enough snacks?" or hear the words "chicken nuggets and fries mommy?" Yet, I have missed them--terribly. It's nice to get a break once in a while but I have to say, I do like being a mom and I can't wait for them to get home! It was fun putting this together because I got to look at all of their pictures, etc. and remember (quietly) how much I love them!

Not Homeless Anymore

We have finally moved into our new home. Abby and Jaxon have been such troopers this summer and we are so glad that they look at everything we do as an "adventure"! They have been shuffled from place to place and everywhere we have gone, they have adapted so quickly and for that, I am very grateful! Sean has started work finally. He has a rough life--taking 2-3 weeks here and there for vacation time, but it has been well earned. But I have to say, I was ready for him to return to work. We needed to get back into our routine here at home and that includes him going to work! We are now living in a town home and are really getting settled. This weekend the kids are at Gram's house and we've been able to get SOOOO much done! We decided to get brave and we stained our furniture--but to our chagrin, it has yet to dry! The weather here in Chicago isn't cooperating! But we'll get 'er done before the little ones arrive back here!
