Some days you just Earn it

So today was one of those days. I woke up in a rush, got ready in a rush. Rushed my kids to get ready and rush us all out the door. We were on our way to get pictures.

All morning long I kept thinking to myself “ Why do I do these things to myself?” Life with three boys all 4 years old and under is hard enough, then I do something crazy like make plans take them to the mall and get their pictures taken??? I guess I am just a Certifiable Lunatic or Gluten for Punishment.

We got there on time, we even got there early. Got a drink, got a snack and waited for the doors to open. Yep, Smart Mommy we were the first of the day.

All seemed to go well, got off the first pictures then… it happened. The wheels started to come off. Nate my two year old started running all over the place and getting into and onto everything, Christian 7 months old started screaming and crying and wanting to only be held. But at least Johnpaul, my 4 year old stuck to plan and hung in Thank God.

Painstakingly we made it through. *sigh* Yep I earned the Crazy Mom award today. We celebrated with (as my 2 year old calls it) “Chicken Bock Bock” and went on home. Tonight I see in my near future a big bowl of Schwan’s Peanut buttercup ice cream and a glass of red wine. I Earned it!


  1. You might be a bit crazy (okay... a lot crazy) but the pictures turned out very good, so I say, your craziness paid off!

  2. Oh, the stress of family portrait sessions--especially when the kids are that young! You have a beautiful boys and got some great pictures for your efforts.

  3. Ok so I just realized our kids are all the same ages, but your's are boys & mine are girls! :p "Wow, do we have our hands full?!" lol *wink, wink* Anyway, the pic of you & the boys turned out great.

    Oh, and thanks for snagging my button- I realized tho' it's not my updated one (I changed it slightly). Can I bother you to get the html code again to change it to the new one? I'm grabbing yours before I leave! :)

My Big Boy Johnpaul Thomas

My Big Boy Johnpaul Thomas
Born March 29th 2006 He's my Master Negotiator and Helper
This little man is my baby in training. He gave me the greatest honor of changing my life and title forever. He made me Mom. He made me important.

It has been a short four years that have blurred past of sword fights, super heroes and laughs.

Johnpaul is a Big Brother ask any one he doesn't take his title lightly.

One of my most favorite of many amazing attributes of Johnpaul is his idea of Honor Love and Family. He is a awesome little boy. I look forward in watching him grow.

My Big & Naughty Nathaniel Jacob

My Big & Naughty Nathaniel Jacob
Born November 21st 2007 He's my Determined Problem Solver
This guy was worry from within the whom. At week 15 I started to bleed. We were loosing him. It was that day this sweet one even before breathing air taught me one of my most precious life lessons.. patience.

Before I had little but while pregnant with him I was on strict bed rest for 172 days. I was more than worth it.

My image of him was he was the most Determined person.. boy was I right. He will because of this be anything he wants. Greatness is in his future.

Nathaniel is loving, sweet and considerate. He can melt your worst day with his smile.

My sweet baby Christian Michael

My sweet baby Christian Michael
Born September 10th 2009 He is my Big Snuggler
This little love. He's my last but in no where my least. He was not planned but was very welcome. He was an Anniversary Gift the best kind ever. Christian doesn't talk yet or walk but I can already tell he's a big thinker.

He is always watching. I can't wait to see how his personality unfolds... but at the same time hope he takes his sweet time. He is my baby, my last and I'd like to keep him sdmall for a bit ;o)
