There is nothing better than rockin' out with your 6 year old. Picture this:
My totally cute 6 year old little stud riding in the car window down music blaring. We pull up at a stop light next to a car of teenagers windows down too. JP who is "chillin" at the window head bobbin looks straight at the teens and gives them the official "nod". They grin.
The best part about rockin' out with my 6 year old...we weren't just rockin' out, but we were worshipping together! Thanks Monk & Neagle!
Seriously no food for 2 days. Oh wait i did try to have rice yesterday.
Funny how I could go without food for weeks and months in highschool and college, but now all I can think about is yummy tasty food. Of course it doesn't help that Shelley's latest blog topic was dinner!
Not sure about this bug. No one around me has it. Maybe i ate something bad on Friday?
I feel though as if I am getting better...hopefully.
The other day I thought to myself, "Hmm...it would be nice to lose 5 or so pounds."
Someone was listening because today I have lost 5 pounds so far. Now I don't want to sound ungrateful or anything, BUT I was willing to work out to lose it. It was not necessary for a nasty bug to invade my system in order to drop a few pounds.
I am not enjoying my day of NOT eating, afterall I LOVE to eat! I also would prefer to see the walls outside of my bathroom, it is the only room in the house that is not painted!
Today I was shopping at the black hole that is Target, when I decided it was time to leave and head over to the swimming pool. My sweet adorable, innocent, yet brilliant 2 year old said,"But Mommy we cannot leave Target yet, our cart is not full."
I left Target with only $27 worth of items I did not need.
-pink kitty cat apron -pink kitty cat picnic blanket -bambi book -princess water bottle -waffle maker -2 clear plastic rubbermaid bins -1 package of tinkerbell paper plates
I am so off schedule it is crazy. Maybe I shouldn't, but I put off housework and other things in order to spend endless amounts of time playing with my kids. I am a big kid.
You can bet that if it is light out and not raining I WILL be outside playing something with my kids and usually the neighbor kids.
We have painted 877 rocks.
We have had 482 bike races.
We have played 291 games of soccer.
We have played 153 games of Basketball.
We have drawn 97 chalk figures.
We have caught 64 creatures.
We have hit 41 golf balls.
We have played 28 games of garage door tennis.
We have made 14 trails in the woods.
We have built several forts.
ETC ETC ETC
I am easily distracted by the fun my kids want to have with ME. I hope they will always want to "play" with me. Anyway I digress, being easily distracted by playing outside means that we don't come in till 9pm. At that time the kids realize they are hungry, but only after I have sent them to bed. They wander back out and remind me "Ah mom we didn't eat dinner"
Quickly I feed them while Aaron closes up everything outside. By then I am tired from playing, feeding, and putting kids to bed. It is now 10 pm and my husband NEEDS food. He informed me last night that dinner is his staple meal and unlike me he cannot survive on ice cream.
What a shame...it would make life so easy.
So to my dear sweet husband, I am sorry I forget to prepare meals. I must learn how to cook for a month and freeze it all! I also must quit blogging, when I should be cooking.
Oh, like right now for instance. I am past hunger so i will just go to bed, works for you right honey?
I love the people in my life I call friends! They are the frosting on a cupcake!
I spent much of the day driving to and from children's activities. The ladies in my life popped into my head. I am so blessed by all the women in my life, both close friends and acquaintances. It amazes me how each of these ladies has touched my heart.
