Summer lovin..

happened so fast, unless you're a mom. Then it just seems to drag on and on. I'm currently enjoying the sound of children playing. But that's because they can't turn the electronics on before 10am. So here it is, 10:17am and I have peace and quiet. Why again do we make rules for children? Oh yeah, so they don't get up at 5am and begin playing on the electronics. No reason to get up so they sleep later...if I'm lucky.

The 4th of July is coming up. Am I ready for it? I never am. Who knows what we'll do. Probably hang out with friends, eat burgers, and relax. Relaxing is something I'm very good at. My dh is the opposite of relaxing. Although with me not working and getting all the housework done, he's getting much better! My dh rocks. I love you J! He thinks it's ok if I don't work...well he does while I have 3 little ones at home. He's already planning what to buy when they are all in school. I just want to thank my hubby for always allowing me to follow my dreams. Foolish as they might be you always tolerate and never laugh when I want to do something different. I don't think I'll ever work at a job longer than 5 years. That seems to be my magic number. Once that 5 year mark hits it's time for me to do something different. At the moment I'm trying my hand at writing. I'm not sure if I'm pretty good and my friends love it or they're humoring me and secretly think I stink. Hmm I guess if I can ever sell one I'll know. Writing is fun. It allows me to put myself in other people's lives. Ok yes they are made up people but hey they're still people. I'm no Nicholas Sparks (I hate that he always kills off a character, what's up with that?). But I'd love to be the next Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Molly Harper, Jennifer Cruisie, or someone that just sells books.

Well the children are screaming now. The fun begins. Being a stay at home mom some days is amazing and other days you don't have much hair left at the end of the day. You think about the person you used to be. Fun, adventurous, inventive and somehow that turns into content, mediator, and booboo kisser which isn't nearly as exciting. C'est la vie! C'est si bon!

Summer Vacation

is exactly what I thought it would be. Lots of sleeping til 8 or later, even for the kids! That part is awesome. Then there's the all day fighting, instigating, annoying the crap out of the other two siblings. One is always doing the instigating. It's usually the 3 year old aggrevating the 6 and 12 year old. Sometimes it's the other way. The 6 year old has quite a mean streak. I think sometimes it's cause he's been younger than the 12 year old all of his life and he's not yet learned to be sneaky like the 12 year old. Sigh. Constant playdates with friends and especially if those friends have a pool has definitely helped my sanity. We had a pool last year. But this year I don't see the point in buying another one for my hubby to throw away again at the end of this year. He's constantly throwing stuff away. Anyway thank you God for my good friends who help me stay sane during the summer. :)
