Lets Hear it for the Boys!!

You know how parenting can be exhausting? What..your kids don't exhaust you?

OK, so maybe I am a minority here.

The deal is this tho... BOTH of my boys are gone this week. QB is at his 1st every week long camp (might I add the 1st time he has ever been away without Mom, Dad, Nanna or Poppi). I'm sure that he is having an amazing time but I am missing not talking to him. I mean, even at Nanna's the phone works! What am I missing out on his little life that he needs to tell me...Oh yeah, I forgot, this camp has a website update every day and this little boy sanded and painted his own SURF board today????? How can I compete with that and better yet, how can I bring that darn thing home on top of my car? Back to the point...I MISS HIM!

And the little little receiver, he is with Nanna and Poppi at VBS this week. What has he done? He has told a volunteer worker that her chest is not even..yes, this is the child who has NO FILTER...he speaks of color, size, shape, and abnormalities like we speak of lunch or dinner. I need some ideas on this one because we have steadily spoke to him about how God makes people in all shapes, sizes and colors and that even though we look different we treat each other the same. HELP! I'm not even with him this week and that little re fried bean explosion is seeming so harmless right now!!!!

So, while the boys are away I have done some things that I just NEVER do for myself, my home or my husband..I pay attention to all of them!!!

These are the rules:

*No Laundry (till the boys are back with loads and loads)

*Eating out (healthy but not home cooked)

*Pedicure/Manicure (this one was all me)

*Pool - By myself at least 3 hrs with a book.

*Dinner or Lunch with Girlfriends who you NEVER see anymore!

*Staying up until 2am blogging LOL!

*Give hubs a long kiss in the morning and a long kiss at night

(OK, maybe more but this is family friendly)!

Hope you are all having a great week! Miss you all!

The Sweetest Thing...

So how many of you have given your 2nd or 3rd or 4th child a bad rap?

I will be honest and say that when I had my 1st child and I was pregnant with my second I thought....will I love this baby as much as the 1st? And then he arrived, HEALTHY, beautiful and full of life.....BUT sometimes he still he gets a bad rap...why? Because he is SOOO much busier than his older brother. Over the past year this is something that I have been working on myself with. I say " have 2 children and you should NOT compare one to another.

They are each blessings in their own way and God created them in his image and that makes them just PERFECT."

So, in an effort to remind myself that although mothering children is not always the easiest task, it is a BLESSING that only some of us get to experience. And to that little boy, who has been known to break a couple of hundred things around the house:

I say, "I LOVE YOU MORE than a zibillion namillion fafillion green M&M's (his favorite)!

And honestly...I had the BEST day with him....JUST him!!!

Which Never happens! He is just precious...

Enough bragging for the night!!!
