Parent Teacher Conference

I feel like I am still trying to recover from our super fun Spring Break last week. I had big plans to tell you all about it. However, we had a Parent Teacher Conference today with #1's teacher. I have to share. In the fall we had our first conference. It did not go well. At all. I left in tears. It was a really rough time around here. During that conference we learned that #1 was a bully. She was throwing massive temper tantrums and crying a lot. She was making fun of other kids. She was being disruptive and not following directions. The list went on and on. I was upset. First I was upset because I felt a little blind sided by the information. I thought that we should have been told as the incidents happened. Second I was upset because that was not my daughter. Yes, she is strong willed but I had never known her to be mean. We had a talk with #1 after that conference and made it clear some things were going to change. The topping on the cake that week was when the school counselo…

Time Change

Ugh...I finally feel like I am getting adjusted to the time change. I LOVE Daylight Savings Time. I HATE the adjustment period. I hate it even more now that I have kids. I was out of town with the kids during the time change. Not only were we out of our routine but the time was screwing with us too. I think it was noon that Sunday before we managed to get out of our pajamas. That's really not so bad. The really bad part happened two days later. I get up at 4:45am on Monday, Wednesday and Friday to go to the gym. I get to "sleep in" on Tuesday and Thursdays. Unfortunately #1 and Mr. Mayer have to be out the door at 7:35 every morning to get to school and work on time. So there really isn't any sleeping in. So Monday after the time change I was up and at the gym at the normal time. Tuesday I wake up to Mr. Mayer saying "OH SHIT!!! It's 7:20!!" Well. crap. I was sleeping good too. So I spring up out of bed and run upstairs to wake the girl up. I burst into…

Happy St. Patty's Day

From my insane asylum to yours....

Girl's Trip

I have mentioned before that I graduated with a small group. The majority of us had been friends since we were 4 years old. We graduatedjust yesterday 15 years ago. We have all stayed in touch. We don't get to see each other often, but thanks to social media we have stayed in touch with each other. This weekend 13 of us girls had a reunion in OKC. We had a great time. We all met at our hotel Saturday afternoon. Then we went to dinner at the Melting Pot in Bricktown. Afterwards a Limo picked us up and we enjoyed all the St. Patrick's Day celebrations Bricktown had to offer. There were leprechauns, drinks with dry ice and greasy fast food. After the bars and downtown shenanigans we went took our limo back to the hotel. We stayed up wwwwaaaayyyy past my bedtime catching up on the last 15 years. We had a great time. I hadn't laughed that hard in a long time. The best thing about this group of girls is that even though we don't see each other often and life has happened in…

Snow Daze

Ugh. I am not a winter person. At. All. I prefer tropical weather. This winter is killing me. We are all home for yet another snow day. They are all running together at this point. I'm guessing #1 will be in school until mid July. This weekend was rough for my children. They yelled, fought, cried and whined their way through. By last night I was on the brink of a nervous breakdown. I was dreading today. However...true to form the boogers have proved me wrong~again. It has not been the lazy kinda day I would love to have, but it has been peaceful. Everyone has been happy, no yelling and played together. It's a little freaky. We have built train tracks and crashed our trains, put puzzles together, colored and had lots of imaginative play. I even managed to get the kitchen cleaned and laundry started. We survived to nap time! Winning! However, there have been requests to go outside and play in the snow after nap. Ugh....I DONT WANNA...WAH.... I bought them all snow shovels severa…
