I could sit here and type a bunch of excuses, on why I haven't been keeping up with my blog, or I could just be honest and say I haven't felt like it.  Plenty has been going on in our household to be blog worthy, I just haven't taken the time to sit down, and type it out.  Some days have been great, some have been hectic, and others are just plain bad.  So, instead of me writing a 10 page blog about all that's been going on, I'll sum it up in a paragraph...

Celebrated Sadie's birthday, beginning of July, baptised Olivia same weekend on that Sunday. Family came it was great. Went to Las Vegas, like we planned.  Had a blast, turned 30 while we were there, will remember not to take the kids next time.  Best friend moved away, not far, but far enough.  Went to Dallas with my sister's and sister in law, had a great visit with our aunt. Spent a week getting ready for Back to School, which brings us to present day....

It's happened, my baby started Kindergarten today.  I always wondered what this day would be like... Would I cry? Would she?  Would the teacher have to drag me out of the classroom, after politely asking me to leave, and I refused?  Needless to say, I wasn't kicked out, and she didn't cry. I did though.  I had Olivia with me, and held on to her tight as I walked back to the car.  Promising her that I would not let her grow up.  A little drastic? Yes.. Unreasonable? No.. It was wonderful, and painful all at the same time.  I told my husband, " your lucky you weren't there, you would have cried." He says he wouldn't have, but inside he would have been balling like a baby...

Big girl, already to go!

Already hard at work...

Not only did I have to deal with my oldest baby, growing up, and leaving me, (dramatic I know, but can you blame me?)lol... Olivia decides today is going to be the day she stands herself up in her crib.  NO!! You can't grow up too. Like my best friend said, " it's like the girls stayed up late last nite plotting on how they were going to make this the hardest day ever.."  Well, they both got me, and they got me good.  I've been an emotional wreck all day.  I realize that this is part of being a mom, watching your kids grow up, and making you proud, but it's still hard to accept.  I miss the days when Sadie needed me, now she needs me, but not in the same way.  One day Olivia will get there too, and then what am I gonna do?  All I'm good at is being a mom. 

Caught her in the act!

My girls are the best thing I've done with my life.  I couldn't imagine my life without them in it.  Sure, I'm exhausted, and haven't slept in or had a good night's sleep in 6 years. There are times when I get so flustered, I want to run away, but I know I will always want to come back here, with my 2 precious and beautiful daughters.  My husband and I are so blessed to have been given this chance to be parents, and I thank God everyday for believing in me, and always having my back.

Today was a day for the baby books.  2 daughters, who made 1 mommy very proud.. :) ( and a little sad)

Til my fingers dance again... tell someone your proud of them! <3
