o and l

Have I mentioned lately...

that I will turn the car around to go get your "choo-choo"...

how when I get you out of the tub, and hug me so tight, I feel like my heart could explode...

that when you sing the Noggin' songs, I listen so close and smile like the world depends on it.

how when I hear you say "Momma", it opens a part of me that I never knew existed.

that I can't remember life before you...

Have I mentioned lately, that I love my boys, more than they will ever know. More than I ever knew I could. And I always will...

5:16 a.m.

twisting. unreeling. searching.
for you through the sea of our sheets.

my hands travel the void on our full size.
to hang senselessly onto your silhouette.

to this, we drift.
as I safely cling to the sun on your back.

the most tender. most sincere.
moments are conducted here.

between dreams and morning day.
listening. so quietly. listening.

to the breath that vacations so shortly.
to be there.

i will unzip your chest.
and crawl inside.

She's a natural.

My niece... Addy Kate.

Other news.


Well, I don't have any.

go figure... oh yeah, well there is that?!#%&@

[in a whisper.] (psst. wanna know a secret? a really embarrassing secret about me... i was waiting on justin to leave for work late last night. we always wave goodbye and blow kisses at the window. we have for years. and well my gut started rumbling and twisting. i clenched the cheeks. you know what i am talkin about... and as i raced to the restroom, i "sharted" in my undies. classy, i know. it was just a little bit. but hey, i am human. and i reserve the right to "go poops" in my pants every once and a while. by the way, i find it liberating to expose my reality to a world of people that don't get to see me blush... wait a minute, i don't blush.)

Please excuse the one bad word in the clip. Sorry, I don't cuss in real life. :)

1. 2. 3...

Paint with me!

Today, we painted the door window. I had initially wanted to decorate it for Valentine's Day. But, that got thrown out really quick. I just decided to let the boys have fun. And let their imaginations run wild... Needless to say, they had a ball.

Not Me Monday...

Today, I did not give Oliver and Liam a spoonful of cherry icing... twice. That is unhealthy and I would never do that.

I also did not eat 2 spoonfuls of cherry icing. Never.

I did take the boys for a walk in the stroller. But I did not think of ways to blow up that stinkin hunk of junk stroller... as I was sweating in 50 degree weather as I struggled to steer the immobile wreck on wheels. I have way more patience than that.

I did not get onto Facebook like 10 times today. I do have a life, don't I?!

I did not fart in the bathtub last night and smell it. What am I, five years old?!

I did not act immature and get upset with Justin for having to work late tonight. I am a loving, kind, understanding wife... not an irrational, lunatic, on a mission to make her husband miserable.

I did not order out for dinner because I didn't want to cook. Again.

I would never do any of those things. And if any of you know me at all, you know that I am full of it...

these days...

rolling around in Momma's bed, hiding under the white sheets, glowing with the morning sun...

little feet peeking out to say hello...

turning the corner to see a face full of shaving cream, and feeling a smile that could save the planet stretch across my face...

when these moments happen, I try to tell my brain, quite literally, remember everything about this... the time of day, the way it smells now, the way I feel, the way they look... (and now, I have tears streaming down my face)

why do they grow up so quickly?

to play...

Joy is not in things, but in us.

These are the moments.

Simple pleasures are priceless treasures.

It’s a happy talent to know how to play.

snuggie 101

(Photo taken with a webcam, not the greatest quality, I know.)

My mom bought me a Snuggie! I am pumped. However, I think that the snuggie may bring mankind to it's ultimate demise... laziness. It is impossible to get motivated when I am so warm and snugglie.

There are only 2 pitfalls to the Snuggie.
1. Catches pet hair like crazy.
2. I about electrocuted myself with the static electricity that this thing puts off. Seriously, I saw the spark from the phone to my face the other day, and IT HURT!

Other than that, 50 gold stars!
