A Day in the Mommy World

The things you learn being a mommy, and everyday adventures…

1) Jade will want to sit in Daddy’s lap when Mommy is cuddling next to daddy.

2) You know every theme song to children’s movies/ Tv Shows (Tinkerbell, Barbie, Word World, Sesame Street, Toy Story, etc.)

3) You constantly say “Get your finger out of your nose”

4) You hear “Mommy” 1400x a day (no joke)

5) I have days where I will hug Jade, laugh, cuddle, then the next day you ask yourself “Why, oh, why did I want kids again?”

6) walking into the living room noticing that she used her crayons to color a picture on the TV, or the computer monitor.

7) Walking down the aisle of a store to have Jade yelling as loud as she can, “Mommy I have to pee pee in the potty!” and not just 1 time, it is the whole time you are walking her to the bathroom.

8) Going out to eat and the sudden outburst of “HEY! HEY BOY! HEY!” (even if it our waiter)

9) Cleaning the house: You will always have something sticky, rather it is in the refrigerator, counter, floor, or on toys.

10) Jade walking up to me after getting out of the shower.. and she says, “Mommy, does that hurt!?” She then points to my stretch marks on my tummy, and asks, “Mommy will you be okay!?” She turns her head sideways and looks at me with her big blue eyes.

Totally Stoked

30 days of Truth is about bringing out the best in yourself. Also, to let people see the “real” you through what you write. For thirty days I will write about myself, I will dig deep and I hope you can start this journey with me. 30 days of Truth; Are you ready!?

Day 28 – What if you were pregnant or got someone pregnant, what would you do?
If it is in God’s will then so be it! I would be happy, totally and completely. It took us over a year to get pregnant with Jade, and no I wasn’t on BC before, or anything of that matter.

Even though I would be stoked, I wouldn’t want it to happen right now. I would cry if it did. I am in the middle of loosing weight, getting myself together, trying to better ourselves with a future not only for us but for Jade’s future. I guess if God wanted to intervene then I would just have to praise him through everything 🙂

There is a lot of people who try for years and years to get pregnant with kids on their own, and never seem to be able to. A lot of us take that for granted, but sometimes you just have to look at the whole picture. So, be thankful in what you got 🙂 and for those of you who read, that try and try and try… one day it will happen, or maybe it will be God’s plan for your to adopt? who knows right?

So anyway, I would be happy, would you?

Five Question Friday

Ahhhh!! I have been slacking! Sorry my fellow friends and readers. We had some bad lightning the other night and we needed up with no power, and blah blah blah, but I will tell ya about it on Todays truth 🙂 So, Here we go.. 5QF!

1. If you knew your best friend’s spouse was cheating on her or him, would you tell her (him)?
I believe in Karma, and I don’t want to be the one breaking bad news to my friend. It is kinda like, yeah I dunno. Since my (ex) step-dad cheated on my mom and I was the one to tell my mom. I have become a let Karma do her thing, kinda person. I now feel as though if I tell my best friend about something, that the person I’m telling on might have lies good enough to not back my story, so I will just step back and watch what happens. I know, true friends tell and talk, but I already been on that fence and it tore me apart.

2. Soda in a can or a bottle?
Can!!! Something about being in a can makes it feel colder, and the taste is different 😉

3. What do you wash first, hair or body?
I wash my hair first, haha! Am I weird? oh, then I double rinse it before I get out.

4. What advice would you give to any new mama?
Sleep while you can, and if you are doing formula.. get the containers that you can have the formula already in that way you can just dump it into the bottle than shake, shake it! lol!! 🙂 and enjoy the moments while you can because the grow up so fast… or the time passes by so fast, either one.

5. What is your best hangover remedy?
Pop 2 Tylenol in the morning, and go get something to eat, with a water 🙂

Day 06
– Something you hope you never have to do.
A divorce. I have seen how much damage they can do to your spirit, soul, family, and friends. I have been through one and it took everything of me to come out of the depression I was in.
Bury my child/children. To read Blogs about loosing a child, I can sit here with tears rolling down my face. My heart goes out to the ones that lost a child/children/stillborn/miscarriage/grown-up. I hope one day yall can find comfort, peace, and joy. That has to be one of the hardest things for anyone to go through, and every one of you guys are so strong!
Homeless; I hope to continue having a place over my head and food in the cabinets. There is so many homeless here in the states; they have no where to go, sometimes they don’t even eat.
Tornado; I hope I never have to live through one. Maybe go to the tornado alley and watch one in the distance, but not be stuck in my house as I pray for my life.
Cancer; I hope I never have to see a loved one go through cancer again. It was hard to see my Mawmaw in so much pain, and watching her become fragile before my eyes.
Faith; I hope I never lose sight of my faith. That will be one crazy place to live. Faith is what gets me through all the hard times I am faced with.

I hope no one ever has to think about any of things, or even live through them. What a sad question today. On a happy note…
I hope all of you have a wonderful, fun, joyful day, today! It is the middle of the week and it is time to start counting down the days till the weekend.

– Something you hope to do in your life

  1. See my life unfold before my eyes, everything I want, or need to be right at my fingers tips.
  2. One day I can overcome the fear of speaking my mind, with some people.
  3. Continue setting my goals, and completing them.
  4. Complete some my bucket list, or all.
  5. My friends to be able to see the good in me, even when I have a bad day.
  6. Continue loving and trusting people, even though I have been through so much.
  7. Can get myself back to 120 pounds.
  8. Invite my friends over for cookouts, and gatherings.
  9. Being the best mom I can be.
  10. Be the best wife and mom

I could be here for days trying to complete something I hope to do in my life, but we all know the basics now. I hope you can figure out what you want to do in your life. We only have 1 life to live, and I hope you are enjoying your life to the fullest.

Forgiveness

Day 03– Something you have to forgive yourself for.

I am still learning on how to forgive myself. Forgiveness isn’t about just saying “I forgive you” and you walk away from it. Forgiveness has to come from your heart and mind. You have to learn to forgive and forget, and I still haven’t done that completely yet.
I need to learn to forgive myself for the things I done when my step-dad walked away. I was there for my mom till she was ready to get back on her feet again. Once she got back into the dating life, and found herself, I shut the world off. I broke up with the guy I had been dating for almost a year, I started drinking heavily, I didn’t really care about school, and I just withdrawal myself from the “friends” I went to school with and met new friends. I wanted to drink away my feelings, I wanted to be in a world that I no longer felt “alone”, I wanted someone to wrap me up in their arms and tell me that they will be there for me, and never leave me.
This wasn’t just the thing that I “wanted” to do. I felt I needed to get away from everything. My whole family was torn apart, and it wasn’t just an easy tear where you can tape it back together. The family I knew as my family will no longer be a part of my life. Oh well, you live and you learn right?
I have to learn to forgive myself, because all this is not my fault. Yes, I was the one who broke it to my mom that my step-dad was not being himself; and he has been getting calls from a woman who gave my mom an exact hour to get to work. Yes, I was the one who told my mom that she needed to call Verizon and act as though she lost the password to her daughter’s phone and she needs to look at the account and past history, and yes I walked her through it. If it wasn’t for me my mom would probably never have known till it was too late and she wouldn’t be where she is today.
I also need to learn to forgive myself for driving on a hangover to get home before my mom did on Sundays. She would come home on Sundays to fetch her some clean clothes, of things she didn’t wear the previous week before. I am so glad that I didn’t get in a wreck on my way home, or hurt someone else. I am thankful that I had a friend to help me through the difficult times as if it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t know how I would have made it through everything I have been through. He looked out for me when I was drinking, or driving. He knew when I was supposed to be home, and he would call me to make sure I made it; sometimes he would even follow me.
I have to really learn to put all the past behind me. I cannot change them, even though I wish we could go back in the past and redo things that should be redone. Maybe one day I can come to grips of forgiving myself, but right now that is something I am still learning.

Another thing I have to learn to forgive myself is not going to see family. Family is a big part of my life. I believe in family gatherings, I believe that we are not granted tomorrow and we should do everything we can to see the ones who are blood related to us.
I think we all get tied up in our lives till we don’t see the whole picture. When my cousin died (He was only a yr younger than me) all I could think about was when the last time I saw him was. Who is to blame for this? Me! I am the one who sits at home, not because I want to just “sit” here but it is because my husband works to pay the bills, to provide for us, and take care of us and we only have 1 car. If he is at work and school, how am I supposed to get around seeing family like I want to? I believe that family should be there for each other no matter what. I think we should have gatherings every time there is a holiday (New Years Eve/Day, Easter, Mother’s/Father’s Day, Independence Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and have a birthday party every month- if you have birthdays that month). I miss not seeing my family as often as I use to, it sucks growing up and having your own responsibilities at times, but sometimes you just have to man up and do what is right.

“Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”  (Ephesians 4:31-32)

Sweet on Saturday

I am beginning to think my S.O.S is becoming a Blog of the Week thing, lol! This week I will like to send my S.O.S to PissyKitty Mama Lou!
Lou is really a wonderful person. We have been communicating through email and I have been blog stalking her for a month now. Be sure you check out her blog. She writes about her adventures of her life, the downs, the ups, and everything in between. You can learn how she deals with the everyday struggles to wanting to use Self-tanner as furniture polish.
http://pissykittyslitterbox.com/

Also, I would send this S.O.S to MyRawSecrets. She has really been a friend, a great friend since we played an online game together. She has really inspired me to be a better person. You can read her blog about her secrets. She tells you like she sees it.

“Why I picked raw secrets? Well let’s face it everyone has a secret or two and well I definitely have a few good ones. So I intend to write about all my secrets and my life on this blog. I am going to be completely open and honest about my life.
http://myrawsecrets.wordpress.com

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Saturday!! Here in the States we are celebrating July 4th weekend! Grilling out, fireworks, and seeing family. That is what life is all about.
Happy Saturday!

Six Word Saturday


Poor Jade keeps calling the
chickens.

I came in late last night. I made sure the chickens were okay, the dogs were fine. My friends and I played with the animals before I headed to bed. I fell asleep, the dogs were barking but nothing of the unusual, as they bark if the wind blows right.
Hubby got back from fishing and noticed all the feathers in the yard. Noticed that the chickens were gone. He came to wake me up to tell me about the chickens.
We think coyotes got them. We live in the boonies, here in the south and coyotes are so bad, along with other wild dogs. Needless to say we have no more chickens. We didn’t have them in their cage, as they have been free roaming for about 2 weeks now.
Jade woke up this morning, she did her normal routine; potty, check on daddy and headed outside. She stood on the porch with her hands around her mouth and called her chicks chicks as loud as she could. I bent down and told her, “The chicks chicks went bye bye.” How do you explain to a 3 year old that the little things that would run with her, and stand by her, her “pets” are no longer here? She looked so disgusted, she threw herself on her bottom and begin to pout. I think Daddy and Mommy are going to buy “new” chickens.


(these were our big chickens)
RIP Chick Chicks
We also had 4 babies (3 months old)
