Sunday arrives. I still haven’t decided if I’m going to tell my family or not. I just don’t know what to say or how to say it. Well, let me be honest, my younger sister and my younger brother already know. So basically who’s left to tell are my older sister and older brother and my parents. My older brother won’t be there today, and my older sister is easy going and will probably be excited. She loves babies. My parents are my concern. I have no idea what reaction to expect from them. And…Continue

Rascal had a good time playing Wii games after the kids went to school yesterday. He got rid of his excess energy and crashed just about the time my oldest son got home from school. Then last night as I was getting ready for bed, Rascal told me good night as he was leaving to head back to the North Pole.
This morning I heard him coming in the back door shortly after I got up. It was really windy outside this morning and I wanted to make sure that Rascal made it inside safely. The…Continue

Rascal came down from the chandelier after the kids went to bed. He said that he was ready to go for his nightly visit with Santa Claus. I don’t know why he was in such a hurry to run off, but it must have been very important to Rascal.
Hopefully, he wasn’t off to the North Pole in search of more sweets, this seems to be his favorite thing to eat. He must have been out pretty late again last night, because he was sneaking back in just as I was coming out of our bedroom to go wake…Continue

I wake up the next day, and before I’m out of bed, BOOM it hits me just like that. Everything in my mind has changed. This isn’t just a good thing, it’s a great thing. It is a blessing. I want kids. So maybe it didn’t happen the way that I thought it would. It definitely didn’t happen the way I envisioned, but that doesn’t mean it’s anything but great. I say it again to myself It is a blessing!
My brother’s statement from last night plays again in my head, “If you think of it…Continue
My son came home from school a few days ago with a paper sack and handed it to me. He said mom, “this is for you.” I asked him what about dad, he said,”it was for him too.” I carefully opened the paper bag and peeked inside. I pulled out this cute ornament that he made at school for us.
I asked my son how they made it and he told me, so that I could share it with my readers. It is a simple craft idea that you can easily do with your children. And it would look cute hanging a few…Continue

The previous night Rascal had time to make a few bracelets and left a huge mess of beads behind. I decided to move him to the mantel so that the my baby or the puppy wouldn’t get ahold of him. Again, I placed him up on the mantel so that he can watch the kids. We have less than a week left with Rascal and I am already getting sad. He has been a great addition to our family and created a new tradition for my children.
Rascal was excited to go tell Santa Claus that he was able to…Continue

Rascal had to be rescued from the toy box so that my toddler wouldn’t misplace him or play with him. I placed him on the fireplace mantel so that he could still keep an eye on the kids. By that evening, he was ready to head to the North Pole to go visit Santa Claus, the other elves, and reindeer. He left shortly after the kids were tucked into bed and I didn’t hear him sneak back into the house this morning. In fact, I wasn’t sure if he made it home in time to cause any mischief.…Continue

Last night when we went to bed, Rascal told me that he was going to surprise us but he wanted to visit with Santa, the elves, and reindeer. During the wee hours of the morning, Rascal decided that he wanted to be like the “Elves and the Shoemaker” and do something so that we wouldn’t have to do it. The next morning when we woke up, I was wondering why the dog wasn’t asleep in her bed. This is so unlike Katie and I immediately knew something wasn’t…Continue

After sipping on coffee and eating cinnamon rolls yesterday, I figured that Rascal had enough sugar in his body to last for a few days. Last night he was bouncing off the walls and running around the house after the kids went to bed. I figured that I would find him passed out somewhere when we woke up this morning. But no! Rascal had other plans.

Rascal took off his diaper late last night and left it laying on the couch. Thankfully, it wasn’t a stinky diaper. I also had to help him clean the butt paste (diaper rash cream) off of his nose. After, I got him cleaned up, he was ready to head off for his nightly visit with Santa Claus. As usual, I didn’t hear him sneak back into our house. By now, you have probably figured out that I am a deep sleeper.

Many pregnant women don’t think about touring the hospital that they are planning to deliver at; especially, a mom who has given birth before. When I was pregnant with my first child, I would have never thought about taking a tour at the hospital. I took a Lamaze class when I was pregnant with my daughter and as a class we took a tour of the labor and delivery ward and learned about the hospitals procedures.

If I could take myself into a dark alley and kick my own ass, I totally would cause I seriously dropped the parenting ball the other night (once again). Yes, I completely failed my duty as the Tooth Fairy, y'all. Now I know that plenty of people have said that they, too, have forgotten a tooth here and there, but I swore that I would never…Continue

Last night when I went to bed, Rascal was acting pretty sneaky before he left to go visit with Santa. He was wondering around the house looking for supplies that he was going to need for his next move. Rascal found one of my son’s diapers, his wet wipes, and the butt paste (diaper rash cream).

Rascal had to be rescued from the dog kennel yesterday while I went to run a few errands. The dog was giving him the evil eye yesterday for being in her kennel and I didn’t want her to take revenge on him. So I placed him on the fireplace mantel so that he was safe and out of harms way.

Rascal is a sneaky little Elf, he took off to the North Pole early last night. He wanted to go back early so that he could visit Rudolf. While sneaking, back into the house last night he found himself locked himself in the dog’s kennel. I found him this morning, he looked so sad and scared while trying to get our attention to let him out of the kennel. When I took a closer look I found the dog’s bone in his mouth and a sign attached to the kennel door asking for…Continue

Rascal was still perched on the motion sensor when I went to bed last night and he seemed happy sitting up high watching the kids. I didn’t hear him sneak out last night to head to the North Pole. The baby woke up around 1:30 early this morning and Rascal was no where to be found. When I finally ready to go back to bed, Rascal was sneaking back into the house. I told Rascal good night and that I would see him in the morning.
Come see the…Continue
