Like a rocket on the fourth of july
Hello! Good day! Im eating lots of protien, carbs, and fats...lol...:( I am NOT drinking sweet pop although I really really wanted one today.

I was hoping that my on ... Read more
Happy mon! Today it was 60 degrees out so we went on a nice long walk. My 2 year old picked up a few rocks and pine cones and carried them the whole way, and for once she didn't throw a fit about not stopping at the playground or when it was t... Read more
i try to capture every moment...
I read an article about childhood obesity and risks and treatment. America really is going down hill, :). My kids are a good weight now but what if one day I get the dreaded diagnosis? How terrible would I feel?

It's a bright new day!
Well, hopefully I will have today off with my kids and husband. And maybe it will be clear and nice outside so we can walk to the playground and play outside. After spending a good deal looking at spark teams and blogs, I feel a little more in... Read more
Honestly, I feel like I can do better. I'm so exhausted with every movement this week, from the stupid cold, from the stupid caffeine withdrawal, from TOM, from sick babies, that I just want to crawl into bed and not get out.

Slipping through my fingers
It's a song I sing to my little ones. From Abba, or more specifically Mama Mia. I've adapted it to what I call "lullaby style" and I've sung it to them since they were in the womb.
Once I dreamed of Juliard and singing opera. And now I si... Read more
No sugar pop since fri am. That is pretty darn good. Yep. I used to drink a TON of pop. I'd go through a 32 ounce cup like nothing! especially since I've been at work these last 4 nights, when it's so easy to just grab and go. But it is ni... Read more

Ribbons, rocks, and leaves
That's what we found on our treasure hunt today. I've been walking with the kids. Even though I'm working the next few nights, I decided to get 'em up and out! It's almost 40 degrees outside, so really quite pleasant. We walked up and down th... Read more
