My favorite holiday


Has always been Halloween. Today at work we decorated our office area. There are spiders hanging from the ceiling and cobwebs all over our desks. Looks kind of spooky. I'm really excited this year because we're going to take Lexi trick-or-treating. Not in the traditional neighborhood, but in the neighborhood at the nursing home I work for. It will be really nice because it will be inside, so no dealing with the weather and the dark. We'll visit the residents and that will make it more like home for them. Older people love kids, well most do anyway in my experience and they always ooh and ahh over babies. This will be Lexi's first Halloween experience. Luke's too but he won't be getting any candy. Lexi is going to be a witch. She will of course be the most beautiful witch you've ever seen. She actually let me put her costume on her the other day and she loved it. Keep your fingers crossed that she doesn't freak out when we get there on Friday.

All the love in the world

Does not make me a good mother. We all have moments or days like that right? I feel like no matter how much love I give my children that alone doesn't make me a good mother. That is the truth really. To be a good mother you must instill values, show respect, have patience ect.
I guess I'm lacking the patience department quite a bit.
I've been on vacation for half of the week (yes just half) and I can't friggin wait until Monday! Seriously I don't know how you stay at home moms do it, I just could not. I love my babies so very much but my God I'm pulling my hair out.
The toddler has been a little kling on this weekend. I love that she loves me but girl you've got two feet get down and use them. The baby is also more than charming this weekend. He had shots on Thursday and I think he's got a bit of a cold, oh and he may possibly be teething.
Having them so close together I think is really really trying, yet I am sure that if they were further apart it would still be trying, just with different issues.
I've been really sad lately. The baby chapter in my life has come to a close. The hubs had the big V and we wont be having anymore children. While that is good, because five is a whole hell of a lot, it is still very sad to me. Sad to think that I'll never be pregnant again. I'm one of those fools who really enjoyed my pregnancies along with the labor. Yes you read that right I enjoyed labor and delivery. I'll never have that sleeply little newborn to hold and cuddle again. I'll never hear the first words, or the happy toddler chit chat, or the way they sound when then run full throttle though the house. Then reality slaps me in the face with a day like today, and thank GOD I'm not having anymore babies.
There is always grandchildren....

Autumn in the Backyard




Lexi actually likes the leaves this year. She had a blast playing with her big sibs.
