My youngest daughter makes this face that looks just like a scathing look that MIL gives!!!!

Ahhhhhhh! It's so scary.

I hope she grows out of it!

That's all, thanks.

Stealing from Constance (6 things)

I stole this six things meme from the OG Constance

1. I get really frustrated when people miss spell or confuse the words two, too and to.
2. I love the 99 cent store. I never need anything from there, but I love it.
3. I recently read Twilight, and and not at all ashamed to admit that I might be partially in love with a vampire named Edward. It's cool, the hubs already knows.
4. I found myself vetoing things that my mom wanted to do with kid just beause I felt like being a jerk and pulling the "well, I am her mom" card.
5. I can't even remember the last time I said the F word outloud, but I say it in my head ALL THE TIME.
6. I never use the term hate but I HATE Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt and Justin Bobby.

7. I let me kids watch TV sometimes I don't feel bad about it one single bit.

Thanks for the comments about dealing with my mother. Today was day one, and it was ok. It was a short visit, which was good because I can only take her in small doses.

Ramble Rant.

My mom is returning from an extended vacation with her husband (for the 15th year in a row-no really, this is the 15th year). It started when I was in Jr High, and now I am married with 2 kids. She's missed a lot, but always tried to butt in when she is here. Anyway, I am bummed out because her presence just stresses me out. What I had previously considered to be her quirky ways, now seem a bit crazy and uhh... bizarre. I totally trust her to watch my kids (and it's a nice reprieve) but then we have issues. Because in her twisted little head I think she thinks that my kid is me when I was that age. And since she chose her husband (the man she cheated on my dad with) over her 3 kids, she has some making up to do. Like take my kid to McDonalds even though I said no. Also my kid is 3 now very smart. It's gonna be hard when she leaves again, and I have to try and explain it to my kid.

That's all. I feel insight full all of the sudden.

Give me strength. She'll be here in 1 day.

  • I opened and Esty shop and I really hope it's going to be successful! If you want to know the addy, email me.
  • My diet is going well. I've been working out and counting calories, and cutting off wine and other booze so that's some calories lost. The bummer is that I am sick and the last thing that I want to do right now is exercise.
  • My kid is doing well with the potty training. She keeps holding her poops and I am not sure what to do about that.
  • I can see into the future that this kid is not going to want to be told what to do and that scares me. Sometimes it's like she's a rotten teenager in a 2.5 year old body.
  • The other kid who is 1 has done everything sooner than her older sis including, sitting, rolling over and walking months earlier in fact, except talking. She babbles a lot and says mommy and daddy and hi and baba, but that's all. Is this normal for the 2nd sib? Maybe she's the quiet one? She sure is super happy all the time.
  • I'm pretty excited that I am hosting Thanksgiving this year at our house, even if my MIL does come. My hope is that if she comes for Tday she won't come for Christmas.
  • I nearly filleted my finger the other night with a butter knife. It is so gross. Husband wrapped it up and stopped the bleeding. I prob could have used a couple of stitches, we butterfly bandaged it instead. No ER for me!
  • I am stoked that fall is here. The bummer is that I am caffeine free and can't enjoy the beloved pumpkin spice fraps.
  • That's all for me. Hope everyone is enjoying the lover-ly fall.

I've been really bad about taking good care of myself recently. After the birth of both of my girls I've gained 50lbs. In less than 4 years. True, I had 2 kids in 3 years, but still, it's bad. So while I have been really good at justifying my rapid weight gain, I have done nothing to stop it or to lose it. So, I've started a pretty regimented work out program and serious calorie counting. I don't mind the calorie counting, because it's allowing me to still eat the yummy things that I like (excluding things like frappachinos, cheese, chocolate and bread.) I also really like the exercising because it's burns calories of course, but I am enjoying the extra burst of energy. I've lost a little bit of weight already and can't wait to meet my goals. I really don't want to be a cow anymore.
