On this day in history

4 years ago on May 27th my little lady was busy over brewing....

She was due on May 23, 2011 but took her time and arrived a full week later on the 31st.  We will celebrate her 4th birthday on Sunday.  I'm a little ho hum about it cause 4 means almost 5 and out of the house to go to school for the rest of her life :/

Love this picture of Reagan - took it while we were at the park on Sunday.  They were sitting on a bench waiting for me to put their bag kites together and although I don't remember the exact conversation it went something like this

R: aww Moma look at all those pretty flowers over there.  But there is all of that water in our way - how do you think we will get over there to get those flowers?  

and then she went on & on listing all the ideas her little head had of how we could cross the water ...

R: We could make a boat.  But Daddy isn't here and we would need his tools. We could swim...but the water looks dirty.  Do you think we could jump Moma?

I do remember that is when I took the picture - after she asked if we could jump.  She didn't even look at me for the answer she just seemed to be dreaming of what it would be like to jump across :)

Little lady got her Daddy's thinkin mind :)

Easy like Sunday morning

Daddy's work trip got extended again.  

& so we found ourselves at another Sunday without him. I packed up breakfast & Kroger bag kites and we went to our favorite park to pass the morning.

Mother's Day 2015

It was a different one than usual cause Kevin was out of the country starting the Monday before Mothers Day for what shoulda been a solid week - turned now week and a half :/

So that's a bummer.

(enter beautiful picture of my kiddos #1)

But thankfully I have a job of my own to keep me busy during the weekdays and plenty of friends and family to keep me happy over the weekend.  

Sleepover mid-week with Grandma & Grandpa

Wild (the movie), sushi & wine viewing party with my sister

Mother's Day eve dinner out with Mom & Tom

So come mothers day - all I wanted was to be by myself, missing my husband.  Is that weird?  I just wanted to be in my own world. 
My  lol. 

(enter beautiful picture of my kiddos #2)

I woke up at 5:30am no alarm, on a Sunday.  Probably because I've been going to bed at 8:30 every night.  But I got stuff done - laundry, dishes.... I was ready for the day when the day started :)

We were at Ikea before the doors opened.  (Logan has NEVER done well at Ikea. period.  Not sure what it is but he is almost at his absolute worst every time Kevin & I go) So for some reason I thought it would be a good idea to go with both the kiddos by myself.  

I got a front row parking spot - that is my only highlight of that trip. It didn't go well (again) that's the short version.

Then we went to McDonalds mostly for them to play in the play area.  And there I was amoungst all the Dads on Mother's Day who were told to take the kids out so Mom could soak in a tub or have a pedicure or go to brunch and/or what not.  For Realz?

The day got more crappy.  But i swam in it, with a puddle jumper on.  Pity party like whoa.  Break out the champagne or.....

Wine and cuddle (orelsestrangle) my kiddos.  Bedtime came early & the book they picked ended like this 

& I thought that was fitting and heartwarming and deserving of another glass of wine.

And so here we are....another Mother's Day.  I've had better for sure.  Still on the fence whether  I'm one of the mother's that would like to spend a day with or without my kids but for sure I've decided that I'd like to spend the day with the one that made me a mother....missing you m'love :*

As for my little loves....they have truely and unbelievably made me into my best possible self.  Take it or leave it kind of self.  The only self I will ever know.  Thank you -my littles - for making me the greatest woman alive.
and Thank you Moma for giving me all my motherly know-how & strength.  I- am- you - through & through.
