I know what I want

My birthday and mothers day is coming soon. I have been wanting a mother’s ring for quite a while. I usually don’t expect a big gift but I have been waiting a mothers ring for quite a while and I would love to get one for either occasion.I really hope my hubby makes an effort and gets me what I want.

My hubby has a birthday coming up soon and I already have his gift planned and ready. I always make sure to have something for him. I can’t say that he is always that considerate though. I have forgiven him for not getting me something in the past and I hope he learned his lesson and will get me something this time.

In a few more days

We have a few days to go before the kids are in spring break and we get to go to the happiest place on earth (Disneyland) It’s been a while since we have been there. The twins are old enough to know whats going on and I can’t wait to see their faces when they see the disney characters.

I have my camera ready and I am getting their clothes ready for the trip. Although I am already an adult and it is not as fun as when I was a kid I love seeing my childrens expressions when they see something new. The best part of being a parent is seeing your children happy. My kids have been counting down the days til they go to Disneyland.

I think they deserve such a trip and I am glad we are able to make them happy.

I need to spoil myself

My face has been dry lately. This weather does not help my skin at all. I checked out cleopatrachoice and I have been wanting to order some of their items. I am all about trying out beauty products and finding what works best on me.

I haven’t always taken care of my skin. Now that I am older I have been trying to be more and more careful about my face and making sure it is moisturized and making sure I spoil myself. There is nothing better than taking the time to spoil yourself.

Even if I have to sneek in some time to spoil myself I will.

They grow up way to fast

Every now and then I get those baby lust vibes but then I remember I have more than enough kids. I am just going to have to spoil my friends babies whenever I can. It makes me a little bit sad that my kids are growing up so quickly. Before I know it all my kids will be in school.

I get frustrated sometimes and wish that they would all be big,but when I sit down and think about it I get sad and wish I could stop them from growing. My twins will be three and they are my last babies. I will admit that going through the clothes that doesn’t fit them anymore brought tears to my eyes.

My goodness how time flies.

My heart leaps with joy

My daughter has been singing since she was a little girl. I try to encourage her as much as I can.Lately she has been showing interest in learning how to play the guitar and I of course will encourage her and get her lessons if she wants.

Now that she wants to play a guitar I have been looking at guitars. I have checked out Mighty Mite Necks in case she wants to have one built or in case the neck breaks and I have also looked into the amp she might need. I have never been good at instruments but I am glad my child is showing an interest.

I love that my kids are not scared to try something new and are willing to learn an instrument.I can’t wait to hear her play her first song on the guitar.

Next Week is spring break

Next week we will be going to Disneyland. My kids are beyond thrilled and I must admit I am excited to go too. I cannot wait to see my children smiling and being happy at the Happiest Place on Earth. I remember going as a child and how happy I felt there. I hope my kids enjoy it as much as I did.

I am an adult now and I must admit that I enjoy being at the park too. I love seeing the shows and although I can’t get on the fast rides I enjoy the small rides. I cannot wait to post pictures from our trip. It is going to be a blast I am sure.

I do believe

I haven’t been to church in quite a while. When I was little my mother used to take me every sunday and all I can remember is the church chair I would sit in and listen to the pastor talk.

Somewhere betweeen listening and asking questions I lost my way. I don’t know if it was because I couldn’t find the answers I was looking for or if it was because I didn’t like that particular church. I want my children to make the choice as to what religion they want to practice and what church they want to go to.

I have always believed in a superior being even if I dont go to church.

Planning ahead for spring break

Spring break is almost here. I have less than two weeks to plan something fun for the kids to do. The hubby wants to take them to Disneyland and Sea World. I agree with both places although I like Disneyland a little bit more. Disneyland offers more rides for the kids to enjoy.

The thing that makes the difference is that Disneyland costs way way more than Sea World does. If you pay admission for one day at Sea World you can go for the rest of the year for free. Disneyland doesn’t offer such deal. We could buy the two day, two parks for 99 dollars though.

I better get my butt into gear and make reservations.

We will have to decide soon what we want to do.

I need to stop being so scatterbrained

I always get so sidetracked when it comes to plans I make with my life. I want to do soo many things but I dont follow through and that is what upsets me more. I can be such a scatterbrain sometimes. I know I want to have a career or something to do when my twins start school.

I have thought many times that I would like to be a medical assistant or medical biller. I would love wearing nursing uniforms to go to work everyday. I have seen some cute uniforms and I know if I dedicated myself to going to school I could be a good medical biller or medical assistant.

I wish they offered financial aid for the classes I want to take in my small town.

one hour screen time

This guest post from Lenny Mcknight

I’m so sick of arguing with my son over screen time. We have a one hour limit of screen time in our home, and that includes computer, video games, and television. I believe kids should play, explore, and interact with their worlds, and not be plugged in to technology and passively experience life. My son, on the other hand, would like to stare at a screen all day if I let him. The problem is, it is hard to enforce that hour limit because he goes from device to device throughout the day, and I don’t remember how much time he has logged. Perhaps I should set up some sort of time sheet system, but even that sounds kind of hard to enforce. What would be really awesome would be if direct tv would come up with some sort of shut-off program where after your time is up, the tv won’t turn on again for 24 hours. That would be so nice, and end so many battles in our house over tv viewing and time.
