A Very Merry Unbirthday To You!

Oh my...those boys are 6 months old. It went really fast. It seems like just yesterday they were this size...
I have to say over all that it's getting a little easier. I don't know if Mr. Hubs and I are just adjusting or it really is getting easier. The boys are happier these days. I am so thankful for that. This past Friday I loaded babies and 2 friends up in the swagger wagon and we took off to OKC for the day to have our hair done. Shrek and Donkey were perfect angels ALL DAY LONG!!! They slept a little in the car on the way up there but otherwise they were up all afternoon and never threw a fit or got upset about anything. It was AMAZING! These boys still take 3 naps a day and to go all afternoon without one is just unheard of.
Today they went for their 6 month check up and shots. I hate that they have to have shots. But, I know that it keeps them healthy. I had Nana Karen go with us this morning. It is much easier to go to the doctor with an extra set of hands. Whew! It made a world of difference. *Thanks Nana Karen!*
Big Boy Shrek weighed in at 19 pounds this morning and 27" long. He is a CHUNK. He is also one of the happiest little boys I have ever seen. He is all smiles and drool....oh my the drool! He is still "that kid" that has to wear the bib 24/7 and still manages to get his shirt soaked. Over the last month big boy has started rolling both directions. HALLELUJAH!  Now if he would start doing that in the middle of the night Mommy and Daddy would be much happier so we wouldn't have to go flip the little pancakes 100 times a night. We are still working on sitting up by ourselves. I know we will get there soon.
Little Donkey weighed in at 16 pounds 7 ounces  and 26" long this morning. He is still tiny compared to his brother. I always tell him he may be small, but he will always be the oldest. Donkey has really gotten chatty over the last month. He has found his voice for sure. He is one of the most laid back babies. Nothing much ruffles his feathers (except when he's tired) and he rarely cries. Donkey has his finger stuck in his mouth all the time. Just one finger stuck in the side of his mouth. It's cute. Donkey isn't rolling over both directions yet, but I'm pretty sure we are days away from that accomplishment. He can sit up on his own better than his brother. Well, really he just leans over on his legs. I'm not sure it could really be called sitting up. Donkey LOVES baby food and eating from a spoon. He yells if I am not fast enough with the good stuff. He and his brother definitely favor the orange foods over the green foods.
I can't believe my babies are 6 months all ready!
I think the next few months are going to bring lots of milestones and lots of work for Mommy. Both boys are already pulling up on all 4's and rocking. YIKES...it's not going to be long.

Adulting is Hard

It's no secret that being an adult is hard. Being a parent is really hard, especially with the bombardment of social media and other outlets. Everyone has an opinion of what you should or should not be doing, saying, eating, etc. It's exhausting when you have average "normal" by society standards children. Throw in a little boy who is viewed as a little different and things get 10x harder.

A few weeks ago my favorite musician, P!nk, accepted the Video Vanguard Award at the MTV Video Music awards. Her speech that evening struck a cord with me. At the time I could not place my finger on why it affected me so much, but this morning something happened, and I understood.

I have made no secret that #3 is different than other kids. He is loving, affectionate, empathetic, and will stand up for anyone he thinks has been wronged. He loves Minecraft, his laser guns, Five Nights at Freddy's, and the color blue. He also loves Queen Elsa, having his fingernails painted and we…

7 Year Itch...

Things are changing y'all.... About six weeks ago I applied for a part time therapist job, on a whim. A month went by and I had not heard anything about the job, I assumed it wasn't going to happen and carried on with life. Then I got a phone call asking me to come in for an interview! Over the course of the month between applying for the job and the interview I had talked myself out of wanting to do it. Cause, that's what I do. I went into the interview thinking it would just be good practice and I had zero intentions of pursuing the position.  Last year I applied for a job I really wanted. It was somewhere I had always wanted to work and was so excited about the prospect. I was told that the job was mine, then I was emailed and told that a former employee had emailed and said she might be moving back to Tulsa and they were going to give the position to her. I was devastated. Then a few weeks later I was emailed again offering me the job again. Needless to say I declined b…

Just Keep Swimming...

Somewhere around my third phone conversation with my insurance company today I hit my wall, hard. I'm not fit for human contact today. I have cried with my dog, I have cried in the lobby of my kids school, through doctors appointments, and in the car. I will probably cry again before I go to bed tonight. My coping mechanisms are crying and chocolate. We are currently out of chocolate.
This weekend was epically bad. #1 and went to a cheer competition in Dallas, Texas for the weekend. We were just there last month, staying in the same hotel. Saturday was day one of the competition and a long day. We left our hotel early and came back around 8:30. We were exhausted and showers and bed were needed. #1 and I were both in bed asleep by 9:30. Around 11:40 a cheer mom calls my cell phone and asks me to come down to the lobby. I get a sweatshirt and pants on and start making my way downstairs before I even thought about it. It was an automatic response. Halfway down I decided to look at my…
