Oh hey! Haha so I kind of promised Sarah last week that I would link up with this. Well here I am better late than never right?
Actually that is the topic of my live and learn. Did you know that being a stay at home mom is crazy! I mean I knew I wouldn't be sitting around watching TV all day, but wow! Seriously, I have no clue where the days go. It is like I have fallen into some black hole that is sucking all my time. To tell you the truth I am not even sure what I do all day. I do know that I constantly have a load of laundry going and I am always either feeding someone or cleaning up after them. I am hoping that I will live and learn and be able to get into some sort of schedule, but right now...Wow!
I can't even get the laptop out while Hayes is awake, because he goes straight for the power button. So that limits my computer time to his nap and after he goes to bed for the night. Well nap time is usually spent picking up after the mess that my little tornado has created all morning. Then usually I get dinner started. In the evenings, Chris is usually home, so I try not be zoned out on the computer.
I must say though I am absolutely loving this time in my life! I am so happy I seriously feel like this is my purpose in life. I thank God multiple times a day that I am able to do this. So right now I have 500+ blog posts to read in my Bloglovin' feed, and you know what, I am totally ok with that. My kids, my husband, my house, those are my top priority right now.
Don't get me wrong I LOVE you guys and soon I will be back to reading and commenting and just keeping in touch with you, but right now, I am just enjoying the heck out of life! So I'm sorry I have been MIA and I know I promised to be better, and I will, I'm just not sure when that will be.
Oh and Hayes's birthday was yesterday, we didn't have a big family or friend birthday, just the 4 of us enjoying each others company. We have been keeping life simple, and it is wonderful. Here are a couple of pictures from lately.
|We butchered our first cow and Hayes let us know that he is a meat man|
|After we get Shawn on the bus in the mornings we have been trying to go for walks when it's not to bitterly cold|
|Hayes is constantly putting on someones boots. Please pay attention to the cute kid, and not all the junk in the backgound|
|Hayes has a nest in the living room that both of the boys enjoy|
|Almost every night they play dress up this night they were boxers|
|It has been so cold we had to let our outside dog Diesel in the house, Hayes doesn't mind one bit|
|We tried going to the lighted parade it was 18 degrees and we froze!|
|I tried decorating for Christmas but Hayes thinks they are all toys, oh well maybe next year|
|This is what Hayes did when I tried to sing him happy birthday, he was also yelling nooooo. Ah 2 year olds|
|Hayes was much happier cuddled in bed with dad|
|We finally got some snow to go with our freezing temps|
|I told you we have been simplifying|
|Hayes and Shawn playing in Hayes's new Thomas the train tent|
|How is it possible that my baby, can sit and smile for a picture and then blow out the candles when I tell him to?|
I feel so blessed that I am able to be with Hayes all the time and not miss a thing.
