Three Times a Charm

Although in the BIG plan for our family we had said we would wait until Xander was about 4 to start trying for a third God had other plans. When we found out we were preggo with Little Luca we were floored to say the least.
Side note I would not have it any other way he was the last puzzle piece to completing our family.
But everyone warned me the third ones you have to watch out for. I said no my other kids were so good and I can’t imagine he will be a bad little boy. He only liked me for the first six months of his life the 3 months I was home with him I spent it holding, baby wearing, and nursing him. He slept in our bed or on my chest. When I went back to work he was happy for maybe 2 hours a day and then would spend the rest of the time screaming.
When I walked in the door he was fine a totally different child. I never understood it until I called home one day and heard him in the back round. My husband was near tears…. He said I don’t know how much more I can take he screams every day from 3pm until you walk in the door.
But once the little bundle was 7 months he was happy again and has been a spit fire ever since. He is just a hand full. We took him the the Preschool event at Xander’s school last night it was to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s bday. They sang songs, had crafts, read stories, and watched a movie.

Luca well lets just say he had other plans…. He destroyed everything in his path, He dumped every bucket of blocks, magnets, play dough out onto the floor, he kissed all the little girls, rammed the vacuum into all the parents’ feet, and stole the snacks from all the kids. I spent the entire time running literally running after him.

He went bat shit crazy when we had to leave and was screaming and kicking. Cried the whole way home. I swear it is sure going to be a FUN summer my mom and I are going to get a work out for sure.

Weekend Adventures

Adventures with Aubree…
I get a text on Friday from a great friend that she totally forgot her dad was going out of town and she had to work Sat morning could I possibly watcher her daughter. Aubree is almost 5 and really enjoys playing with my older kids. However they had a sleepover with Nanny and I only had the baby, I told her yes of course and figured little princess could keep me company on all my chores for the day.
Most of the time when Aubree comes to play I don’t spend much time with her she and the kids are too busy making play houses and pretending they are mermaids to care what her mom and I are talking about or whats for dinner
So Aubree came with her wee cup of fruit to eat for breakfast she kissed her mommy goodbye and ate her peaches. I told her to gather her shoes and coat we were headed to Target. Little did I know once we got into the car she would transform into 5 going on 17…
We get in the car and she started to tell me that her Papa was gone and how sad she was he was on vacation. She really missed him and could not wait till he came home on Tue.

Here are some things I learned from my Adventure with Aubree

• Her Nana puts Booze in her coffee

• She prefers hot tea specifically made from the Keirig

• She thinks I am a good driver better than her mom

• She really likes the way I get my coffee from Dunkin Donuts her exact words were “ it is delicious”

• She refuses to eat anything in my husbands car cause he will yell at her (side not he has never yelled at her)

It was an awesome Sat morning and I have to say I had learned a lot about Aubree and her family 

Moving On....

I told myself at the beginning of this year I was not going to try anymore with reaching out to people. I am going to be 30 years old in June and I am so very blessed with all the people in my life. I am not saying that I wish I could see people more or spend more time with so and so but I am just tired of trying.
But there is this one friend…. I just can’t seem to let go. It makes be bat shit crazy because I can not for the life of me read her. She is one of those friends that I can not see for 2 years and then we can spend countless hours together like there had been no pass in time at all. They almost always invite me to things and most of the time I go. But when I invite them to things because I want to share my life and my kids with them I get nothing. No phone call no anything. I have made the decision to stop inviting it is pointless.
But there is still part of me that wants to reach out. So on a whim Friday night when I was crazy mad putting all the finishing touches on my daughter’s party details I sent a text. It went something like this
“Hey I just wanted to say I have been thinking about you and miss you” I hope all is well maybe we can get together soon.

Nothing no responses no nothing… at first I kept telling myself have a good weekend enjoy your friends and don’t think about it. But for days now it has been on my mind. That she said nothing… I just so badly don’t want to let go but where do I go from here.

I keep making excuses like maybe she changed her number or maybe she is busy and couldn’t respond. But deep down I know it was the complete act of getting ignored.

What Are you?

What Are you?

Reading As of Late: I just read Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn in part because she has my name spelled different and part because it was recommended by a handful of people.
I read the reviews and they were all great…. Bottom line is I HATED it I almost stopped reading it but I forced myself to finish and just could not wait until it ended.
I just started Home Front by Kristen Hannah (my new fav) I am loving it half way through in one day and I am loving it.

Watching: Since the Parenthood Season ended last week I have been back watching Netflix on the tablet. I am not watching season 4 of One Tree Hill. I never watched the show while it was on TV I know I know But I love it now and when I am not reading I am curled up with my Lands End Blanket watching Lucas, Peyton, Brooke, Karen, Nathan, and Haley.

Business Update: Its official we have a name, we also have some orders so we are going to hold off on making the website just yet but I am so excited about the name. It can not be reveled as of yet but soon enough.

In Other Family News: We are all battling colds AGAIN I am so over winter and I can not wait until Spring has Sprung. We are FINALLY getting window treatments for the front windows. I am so happy about this just having a heck of a time trying to find colors.

I am going to be so happy when the kids parties are over… we have some many other things to do so we need to focus on them to make sure they get done.

I have no voice and it sucks, my ear hurts, and I have a headache. I am going to try and continue to make it through the day.

Rocking Those Minnie Invites

We got our very first client for our business and I could not be happier. She is also going to help us get a web page up and running. I am hoping that people go crazy over what we made and just by that we get some PR…
We have a lot on our plate as we are making my mom’s wedding invites but I am so excited and I think we finally figured out the pricing. I am hoping to do some sample projects and get the page up and running.

Still over the moon about this business and really think it is going to take off in 2013 good things coming for K and J’s Business

First things first we need a name eh?

Faith is taking the First Step even when you can’t see the whole stair case.

V-Day Challenge….

So this Valentines Day I challenged my husband to a unique gift exchange. I asked (Told) my loving husband that instead of buying gifts for each other this year they would have to be “Homemade”

His initial reaction was “WTF” what do you mean like making you something like what out of wood? I told him it didn’t matter but it had to be home made. I really don’t know just yet what I am making him but this is Exciting…

He claims he is not doing it but I am going remind him every day how excited I am to see what he is going to come up with. I suggested going online and looking for things to make. I sure hope he follows through I sent him am email this morning asking him if he has been thinking out it.

I have not yet gotten a response. I think I am going to also suggest instead of going out doing a nice fancy dinner with the kids sparkling grape juice and all. I love Heart Day it is so exciting

Daily Laugh

Here is my Day and what has happened since 8:30 and its only 2:14pm, I am not going to lie I am a little scared

Its remains 60 degrees at my Desk currently wearing 3 layers and a blanket
Heat Guy comes and our Motor for the blower is out meaning no heat is being blown out of any of the vents on the first floor

Heat Guy leaves and something happens that causes the Fire Alarm to go off. We now have to go out side in -1 weather because something is wrong.

Fire Dept Comes and determines it is a pipe that burst and the water is pouring in from the sprinkler head in the building next to ours.

I have a headache now from the alarm Going off for 30 minutes, in addition my glasses froze in Tint mode and I could not see for about 20 minutes while they were “thawing”

At this point I am thinking well I am all done with Tue… NOPE go to get the Pb&J I brought for lunch where I had to scrape the peanut butter from the bottom of the Jar and someone has taken and eaten my sandwich.
At least there were left overs of Jersey Mike’s Subs in the kitchen to hold me over and the lunch thief left my pudding
TRUE STORY none of this is fiction!

Happy Tuesday!

The Ledge

I love how creative my kids are they can imagine they are anything anywhere we are. Whether the chairs in the Doctors office waiting room are rocket ships or they are waiters in a restaurant and all the patients turn into customers ….

They all have very vivid imaginations but one of my most favorite things they do is when they use the ledge of the bay window to play the air guitar and sing Taylor Swift at the top of their lungs.. These are one of the best memories I will cherish in my heart forever. Even though there are scratches and dings its worth all the memories that are made on the ledge of the bay window. Because these are quite literally the most important moments.
