My Little Daredevil....

video

Here is a video of one of my little darlings. She is one of the happiest babies I have ever watched and is so much fun. She makes me laugh all the time because she tries so hard to keep up with the boys who are almost 2 and almost 4. She saw them climbing on the chair and of course had to try it.

Valentines Day....

Valentines Day we had beautiful weather and spent the morning at the park. My kids were out of school for a pro ed day. It was fun hanging with my little kids (day care kids) and my big kids.
Poor Soccer Girl was in her room almost all day doing homework. Her on line Honors Calculus class is kicking her butt!!


Love this picture of my girls and D my little three old. Mighty Mouth showing off those long legs.

Miss Priss with the "obligatory for Mom" smile.



Love this: making pancakes on Valentines morning D and E wanting to help.




Our Valentine Tarts (idea courtesy of my Family Fun magazine)




They were so yummy, and so not on the weight watchers program thank goodness for "extra points."

Rainy days and Saturdays...

Today has been rainy and it is getting cooler. (Don't know if I have mentioned but we have had unseasonably warm weather) Yes, while the rest of the country is in the midst of snow storms I have been wearing shorts for the last two days. But I guess that is going to end after today. Our highs will go back to 65. I know, I know, I am not complaining.

I have to do a little bragging Sydnee was picked for this Largo.Patch websites athlete of the week. I also lost 5lbs last week at WW and did the Teen Zumba class with my girls at the Y on Wednesday. I have to admit it was a lot of fun, mostly because I was doing it with my girls. I thought it would be easy because you know it is suppose to be dancing with a Latin theme. Uh no, it is kick your out of shape butt with a Latin theme. LOL I used to think I had rhythm and could hold my own on the dance floor.

NOT!!!

But I am looking forward to going again. Since it was the teen Zumba there were only like 6 girls in the class and three of them were mine so I felt completely comfortable and not intimidated. I figure maybe after a few more classes when I can manage a little more rhythm and a little less panting I will do the adult class too and then I will be getting two in a week. Because one thing is for sure I need to get some MORE EXERCISE...

Off to get my hair colored and highlighted (aka: cover the gray)

So far today I have:

1. Been rudely awakened by the clinging and clanging of glass bottles as my husband emptied the indoor recycling into the outdoor bin. (this was due to the fact that we kept the bathroom window open last night, note to self: don't do that again on a Tuesday night)

2. Listened to husband gag and carry on RIDICULOUSLY because he got dog poo on his shoe as he was taking out trash and emptying recycle bins. (the Englishman has the worst gag reflex and weakest stomach ever, he is very dramatic and carries on forever when dealing with gross things)

3. Managed to get two younger daughters off to school without a single fight. (this folks entitles me to Mother of the year award)

4. Took shower (even shaved my legs), got dressed and got makeup and hair done, made bed, cleaned kitchen, washed poo tennis shoes, did one load of laundry, have chicken baking in the oven for casserole tonight.

5. Dealt with a almost one year old who recently learned how to throw temper tantrums and proceeded to throw a good one because I did not make her bottle fast enough.

6. Had a 20 minute negotiation with a whining 3 year old who couldn't understand why he couldn't have both playhouse dolls and both little cars even though there are TWO little boys who want to play with them. You see it was INCREDIBLY important that the Mama doll have the daughter doll as her passenger. Said three year old is so smart that he even explained to me that little girl doll couldn't drive anyway because she wasn't old enough, to which I had to explain that 2 year old boy doesn't know this so he doesn't care he just wants a doll for his car too. (whew did you get all that?)

7. Getting ready to load three kids into van for story time at the library and I am already exhausted and it is only 9:45am.


How is your day going????
