Little bit of love and the puking princess

Last night after the wee ones were all tucked away in their beds and fast asleep (or so we thought) the hubs and I decided it was time for a little loving. I excused myself for a moment to freshen up and double check that the house was all locked up for the night and while I checked my Twitter stream one last time before shut down I heard the unmistakable sounds of puking.

Lovely I walk back toward the bathroom to find the hubs and my girl standing in the hall outside the bathroom where the aroma of fresh vomit was making its way to me. Thank sweet baby jeebus that the hubs was here because just catching a glimpse of  it, ( she didn't make it to the toilet, thankfully she only got the bathroom floor) made me start dry heaving. So while he cleaned up the bathroom I gathered her gear for a shower and then got her taken care of when  he was done. Once she was all cleaned I blow dried her hair (which there is a ton of) and got her tucked back into bed. We did decide from talking to her she wasn't sick, she had watched a scary video and had worked herself up to the point she made herself sick. *Palm face* And she wonders why we won't let her watch scary movies.

Finally the puking princess was back in bed and fell asleep and I was able to get back to the hubs. At this point a little bit of loving was all either of us had left in us before we were ready to head off to dream land but hey it's better than nothing.

Sometime's you just have to vent

Like 5 million other people I have a facebook page. I update it daily, sometimes multiple times a day. My posts can be random thoughts, updates on my day or little rants if I'm annoyed. Being as the hubs is the person I spend the most time with besides the kids a good number of post end up being about him, including ones that are semi complainy (I know not a word, but I like it) he knows this and thinks it's kinda funny. As long as I'm not putting like everything out there were good. Complaint post about the hubs are by no means the majority of what makes up my profile but there there, splattered though out  and this has never been a problem. If my husband doesn't care then no big deal right ? One would think.

Today started out like any other morning. I was rudely awoken by my inconsiderate alarm clock, stumbled out of bed and into the kitchen where I fired up the laptop and my coffee. I hop online to check my FB, Twitter and a few essentials for RL and boom a real life issue that's enough to tick off any wife at anytime of day, but first thing in the morning with no coffee in ya yet and still working through the first cigarette. I won't get into the details of what the situation was but it was a justifiable reason to be pissy. I couldn't confront the hubs about it as he was sleeping, and rather than being nasty and throat punching him awake I did what many a pissy woman does and hit FB and dared to tell my friends on there my hubs was on my shitlist. For shame I'm a terrible wife apparently. I was told he was the bread winner and I should give him more credit. (Wow really) And in a more indirect ( aka the cowardly way known as posting on your own wall instead of commenting directly on the person your bashings wall) told To "quit doggin my man, no one want's to hear it,Get off the computer and get a life, If it was me you would be looking for somewhere else to live." (again wow) Nothing I said was out of line, nothing I said wasn't anything my husband doesn't know about so why are you judging me.

I'm in no way dogging my husband. The man means the world to me, and I'm fully aware of how good I have it. I know how good of a man he is and I appreciate that. Just because I make a negative remark from time to time you have no idea the positive that goes on every single day. Anymore than you can know or understand the complexities of the drama. I'm allowed after 13 years next month with this man to vent when he frustrates me, and guess what so is he.I know I frustrate him and I know when he gets to work he bitches to his buddies about me when I'm driving him up a wall. I'm cool with it at least then he's not bitchin at me. I hate when he's grouchy I'd rather he get it out of his system.

It doesn't mean that we don't appreciate each other, or have respect for each other. The hubs and I we've been though so much together people don't even know. To even think from a few Fb post here and there they know anything about the kind of relationship we have and how and why it works, or think they can judge what kind of wife I am who's really the one with the problem? We didn't make it this far by accident, so we must be doing something right.

Note: This was actually written a couple days ago but I wanted to give myself a couple days to cool off before I posted it. I still feel the point is relevant. You can't judge someone from a few Facebook status updates, hell you really shouldn't judge someone regardless. If you don't live their life you have no idea what the situation is, or why they feel the way they do or say the things they do. Worry about what goes on in your own home and let them deal with what goes on in theirs. I could have retaliated and said some really rude things back about the people who thought it was ok to give me crap about things they knew nothing about, and at least what I would have been saying would have been based on fact but I didn't because it's not my business.

Yea I'm that mom

My daughter is about to be 9 years old next month, and this child is seriously so busy she has more things filled in my calendar than I do. She currently has 2 dance classes, pom team, garden club, drama club3 days a week and would like to add gymnastics, swimming and who knows what else but I told her no because the only days left in her week are Saturday and Sunday and she needs a little down time.

At first I was a little apprehensive about all these activities as I really don't want her burning herself out or becoming stressed at such a young age. But then I saw how much she enjoys each and everything she does and the amount of confidence she's gaining from her involvement in things like dance, drama, and pom.

Dance and cheer have been a part of her life since she was 4. She's been in 3 recitals multiple competitions and with each one she amazes me more. Her team has won most of the competitions but even when they haven't she took it better than I ever could have predicted and the sportsmanship I haven't seen adults with the kind of manners her and her team have displayed both when winning and losing.

I use to cringe when she would ask to join some new activity or when it was sign up time again, but now I've kind of started looking forward to it. Because even though it means more running around and double the work load for me and probably her as well the lessons she has walked away with are so worth it. Hell she's even been able to teach me a thing or two over the years. So as long as she continues to have fun, and her school and health are not affected by all the things she's involved in I will continue to support her in her choices.

In many ways I think that helping her to find these kind of passions early in life and supporting her pursuit of these dreams will keep her on the right path in the future. She will have reasons to stay out of trouble, and to choose a life without over indulgence. She is filling her life with things that have meaning to her now therefore won't be searching for that meaning later. I will never push her to do anything she doesn't want to do, but I will always encourage her not to give up just because something is difficult.

I do have one rule when it comes to anything she asks to join or participate in and that's once you start you have to finish. I want her to understand responsibility and commitment, I also want her to understand the concept of thinking over your choices before you make them. This rule makes her stop and really think about weather what she's starting is something she really wants to do or is it something she only maybe thinks she wants to possibly try because her friend is going to do it. So far this rule has worked well and we haven't had any real issues, it has made sure we really communicate. Hopefully this a foundation for the future when she hits her teen years. (keeping fingers crossed)

So while I'm pretty sure she's working her way towards being that girl that's on every page of the yearbook because there's not a club or team she's not on, I'll be that mom cheering her on, running her from practice, to practice, making sure she has everything she needs when she needs it, joining clubs to support her teams, fundraising, attending meetings, volunteering and all because well yea I'm that mom.

Moms taxi service will be riding again

I'm stoked that schools back in session the Christmas break about did me in. By day 2 fighting had ensued and didn't waiver the entire 2 weeks of break. Ok so there was a few moments of peace, they were called the middle of the night when the sweet wee ones finally passed out after hours of running amok and seeing how far up the wall they could drive their already half insane mother.

So yes like after 3 months of summer break I am beyond ecstatic that school has resumed. What I'm not all gung ho about is that now my taxi service shall ride again. Before break my daughter had me running 3 days a week. Monday is Hawaiian dance class, every Tuesday is Pom-pom and Every third Tuesday is garden club right after school then on Friday is another dance class this one is Jazz. I felt she might have been over extending it a bit but she was keeping up and she wanted all of so I figured if she was happy and it wasn't affecting anything no problems.

Then the second from the last day of school before break she informs me she wants to sign up for drama club after school. Not only does she want this she begs and pleads. So I relent as long as it doesn't interfer with the other activities she's already committed to or her school work. Then I find out this is going to take up 3 days a week. My third grader now has no free days during the week. She will be involved in no less than one activity a day every day of the week. Which means I will be running her and her brother around every day of the week, to school, from school and back and forth from several different activities. Oh and lets not forget appointments like the orthodontist, doctor, and dentist.

Now my son who is only in preschool is starting to show an interest in getting involved in some kind of extra curricular activity as well. I'm not sure when or how I'm going to get him to whatever he decides to join but I'm hoping I can find a clinic that will clone me so that I can get someone to do all this extra running around. I use to like driving but that was before I became moms taxi service.

20. My husband is convinced I descend from a long line of sailors and truck drivers due to my incessant need to cuss. I can't help that I have a colorful vocabulary, and we already established what my worlds most favorite word is so the rest of the swearing should really come as no surprise.

22. I am the child of a recovered/ing drug addict who is also the child of a drug addict, who is the child of an alcoholic, are you seeing a pattern here?

34. I desperately want to be organized and have a clean house but most days I can't make myself bother with shuffling the pile of papers all over from one place to another
35. I truly love my husband with every fiber of my being but there are days I wish he would go on a really long vacation without me so I could just catch a little bit of a break, I think it has something to do with the fact that we've seriously spent everyday of the last 12 years together except for a 4 day hunting trip he took in 2002, and a 5 day Florida trip I took the same year (note the trip I took was with a 3 month old so it wasn't even a real vacation) I think a little break from each other would do us both a world of good

99. I adore finding the perfect gift for someone and then getting to watch them open it and knowing they love what you found them. That can be so much better than receiving anything else in return.
100. When I was little I wanted to be the first Ballerina, teacher, waitress, astronaut all at once (I was5)
