We loved bowling!

Playing at the beach

I am happy to report that this week was much better! I am sorry about the negative post last week but sometimes that is how I feel. Anyway we had a great week!

We started the week off with a wonderful FHE with the Petits. We decided to go bowling and get frozen yogurt. We had so much fun and the kids loved every minute of it. This week also consisted of 5 swimming lessons, being on the news, going to the beach, date night, shopping , visiting grandma and so much more. I am also happy to report that Jackson is FINALLY clapping. I was getting very worried and he is trying to walk! He took 4 steps today!!!

I am so grateful for my family and the love we have for each other. Sometimes things are bad and sometimes things are good. What matters is being there for each other :) Thanks Matt for all the extra help this week. It was much needed and SO appreciated. I love my kids so much. They are adorable :)

Bad Week

Last week was one of those weeks for me. It was long, emotional, frustrating and draining. Lately I have been exhausted, bored and just annoyed with everyone and everything.

Emmy starts school in 4 weeks. I love her more then anything and love having her home but, she also knows how to push my buttons alot lately! She seems to scream bloody murder everytime I do her hair. I understand that it hurts to get a ratsnest brushed out of your hair but I just want 1 peaceful hair day. I would also love to be that mom who does her kids hair really cute. I can tell she is bored with me lately. I try to keep her entertained, teach her new things and do fun activities but sometimes it is not enough. I am so happy she is starting school. I know she will love it.

Matt and I decided it is time to buy a SUV. We want the new Tahoe or so we thought... The thing about Matt is when he makes a large decision he must discuss it with everyone and everything. We get an overload of information and then get confused. After 3 days of looking until 3 am on the Internet, too many car salesman, lots of opinions and a hungry me I lost it. I had a full blow breakdown on the side of the road. I am not proud of this but GOOD HELL FIND A FREAKING CAR! Anyway, we have since worked things out and have for sure decided on the Tahoe. The only problem is finding one in black or white with with leather, bucket seats, backup camera and in our price range (impossible in my opinion).

This week has also consisted of numerous people making fun of my neck brace and lots of strange looks. I understand I look like a freak but it is only funny for so long. I wish Matt would understand this! I had to drive to Bountiful this week in a minivan with the brace on, 2 kids and a large pink child's mustang hanging out the back. Needless to say not one of my great looking moments. Another great looking moment I had this week was at the gas station. I just purchased a adorable peacock print dress. I wanted to get the kids a treat and a soda for myself. I kept getting strange looks but just thought it was the fact that I had two kids pulling on me with a neck brace on. After the gas station I went to see Matt at work. When I got out of the car he informed me that my dress was ripped my garments were the only thing covering my buttocks. All I have to say is good thing I was not wearing a thong!

All in all I am glad the week is over and I am starting a new one. I plan to be a better me this week. Attitude is so much and I am going to have a better one. When Emmy is screaming while I am doing her hair I am going to put ear plugs in. When I am on the verge of a breakdown I am going to walk away and calm down. When Matt is car searching I am going to watch "Say Yes To The Dress"And instead of being irritated with my neckbrace I am going to embrace it by BEDAZZLING it with jewels and ribbon :). This week IS going to be better. I officially wash myself of my bad attitude and am starting fresh!

Emmy starts dance this week and also has 5 days of swimming lessons. We live a fun life of pool parties, pretend princesses, playgroups, lunch dates and shopping trips. I am truly grateful for all the wonderful people and things I have in my life. I am going to be a better wife, mother and friend. Life is good.
