Happy Thursday

For the first time in way too long, I have been reading and catching up on some of the beloved blogs I follow.  And, I am so excited to read that I am not the only one who has been a bit neglectful to her blog! Thank goodness.

Life has just been so crazy busy since Jack made his grand entrance into the world, and well, my blog has suffered.  But, in all honesty, that isn't all that has suffered.  My house is a disaster, my ironing is piled sky high and my photography has kind of fallen to the way side to and sewing... wasn't that a hobby of mine for a while? Anyway... And, that doesn't even include what I have done, or not done for myself.

However, I joined the gym today and after a brief workout - Very brief.  So brief that I will not even embarrass myself by giving details - I am really feeling how neglectful I have been to myself.  It's sad really.  But, I am back on the wagon, ready to get my act together and get my booty back where it should be... not touching the backs of my knees!

I am also ready to get myself back into gear with my blog.  But, I think I need a revamp.  I mean, look at it... no where does it display Jack and I am so over the look of it.  I need something new.  I've been searching, but haven't found the perfect look yet.  Any suggestions??? Anyone want to make-over my blog for free??? I'll gladly display your info and advertise for you!  Please, I realize this is a major opportunity, but don't everyone email me at once! :)

Happy Thursday, everyone!  Hope that you have a wonderful weekend.  And be on the lookout for changes coming soon... I hope!

Little Miss Smarty Pants

On the way to Granna and Pop's, the other day, Emma said, "Mommy, I see Emma."  Not knowing, really, what she was talking about, I replied, "Oh, really?  Good."  However, my answer wasn't quite what she was looking for.  She kept saying "Mommy, I see Emma."  So, I asked her where she saw Emma.  She told me "In the sky" and then said, "I see Mommy and Jack in the sky, too."  I looked out the window where she was pointing, but didn't see anything.

I have to admit that I was a little freaked out.  My first thought was that maybe she saw angels... Because I do believe that children can see angels.  But then I started to ask myself what if she is really seeing us in the sky as angels!  I had a few moments of panic that something terrible was going to happen to us, but then managed to reign in my much-too-vivid imagination.

I kept asking questions to try to get more information out of her, but all she would say is that she saw Emma and Mommy and Jack in the sky.  I kept driving and glancing out the window, trying to see "Emma and Mommy and Jack in the sky."  Then, as we went around a curve, I glanced out again and noticed something in the sky that I wasn't able to see before... There were several clouds shaped like letters, rough letters, but close enough that even my two-year old could make them out... 'E' for Emma, 'M' for Mommy, and 'J' for Jack... just like I have been teaching her with our tub letters... Little Miss Smarty Pants!

I was driving Emma to school the other morning and on the way I picked up my phone.  I was fiddling with it when Emma began saying, "You have to drive it.  You have to drive it, Mommy."  I was a little confused, so I asked her, "Drive what?"  She then, said "You have to drive the big, Mommy."  She grew impatient with me while I was trying to figure out what in the world she was trying to say.  And, this led to her screaming, "You hand, Mommy.  You hand has to drive the big."  I told her I was driving and raised my hand off the steering wheel and put it back on to show her.  I said, "See?  Mommy is driving."  She told me NO and then said, "You other hand, Mommy."  I put my other hand on the big part of steering wheel while I was still holding my phone and asked her if that was better.  She said, "No, Mommy.  You have to put you phone down."

Busted.  Even my two-year-old realizes that it isn't a good idea to mess with a phone while driving.  Needless to say, I am more conscious about doing not anything but driving when I'm behind the wheel!
