It's FRIDAY!! Tomorrow is SATURDAY!!!

Happy Friday everyone! I don't know where the time has gone. Wasn't it just Monday?! We've had a busy week around here. Those boys are feeling MUCH better. Thank Goodness! They are much more pleasant to be around when they feel good. And, even better for Mom and Dad is that they have been sleeping all night for the past few nights. I'm convinced it's a trick. My kids don't sleep. They have to be up to something. 
I don't know if I had mentioned, but we have a crawler in our house. Yup, Mr. Shrek has been army crawling for almost two weeks now. He thinks he is a VERY. BIG. DEAL. I think I am in VERY. BIG. TROUBLE.

He decided he didn't like the toys I had laid out for him and his brother so he crawled over to the toy basket to get some more.  He's also been obsessed with the play mats lately. I haven't been putting them out for them to play on because Shrek keeps getting himself tangled up in them. See below....
He kept crawling over to them so I decided to set one out for them.






Donkey has no interest in crawling. He doesn't move very much at all. He can roll. I've seen him do it, but he prefers to just lay there. I guess he assumes I will get whatever he wants for him. That turkey.

Big Sister Diva has learned to pick the boys up and put them in her lap. This has been very exciting. We still have to remind her to be gentle! and that their heads are attached to their body. No matter how rough she is with her brothers these boys LOVE their sister. They light up every time she is near them. They do not mind her holding them.














I met some friends I hadn't seen in a while for lunch yesterday. 
I left early and stopped by the office where I used to work to see everyone. 
Carter and "RoRo" were color coordinated so naturally we had to have a picture :)
                 


















Diva has dance lessons on Wednesday nights. Afterwards Mr. Hubs took her to CherryBerry for a treat. It was very exciting!
Can you tell her leotard is on backwards?
He text me to say that she had Bubblegum ice cream with captain crunch, gummy bears, sour worms and pop rocks as her toppings. Ugh, makes my belly hurt. He then said she was going to make mine for me...um, Yay? Thank goodness she didn't!
It's gorgeous outside today. Finally...those gray days were getting me down. I know how seasonal effective disorder feels! The boys and I decided to go to the grocery store (Target) before nap time. It was Shrek's first time sitting in the cart like a big boy! He did not say a single word the entire time we were in the store. Bizarre....
I wore Donkey while we were there because he is 3 pounds lighter. I think that is funny now to say because when they were smaller I always wore Shrek because Donkey was so small. How things change in such a short amount of time! I'm not real sure why I look so serious in the picture. I must have been concentrating!
It's been a very busy and FUN week. The weekend is going to be just as busy. Mr. Hubs and I get to go out tomorrow night with a friend and act like real adults. No baby talk or diaper changes for hours!

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…
