About Me

My photo
Welcome to my blog. I'm a Mississippi country girl transplanted to Grapevine, TX. I have been blessed with a great husband, and my kiddos, Aleck and Ella. When I'm not eating bon bons on the couch, I am my kid's room mom, PTA member, Sunday School teacher, taxi driver, amateur photographer and personal chef. When I'm not doing those things, I'm running a small jewelry business, 2nd Amendment Jewelry (www.2ndamendmentjewelry.com), that I started with my twin sister, Glenda. It's a crazy and busy life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world. I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life!

A Day in the Life

2:30 a..m. AJ's crying. hope it doesn't last long.

5:00 a.m. AJ's crying. hope he goes back to sleep.

5:30 a.m. AJ is crying, again. nursed until 5:50 a.m. and I crawled back in bed about the time Tom crawled out. We are both so sleep deprived.

7:00 a.m. AJ is crying. I try to nurse AJ in bed, but he would rather try to get the phone on the bedside table.

7:10 a.m. collapse on the couch after wrestling match to change diaper. I have been known to call Tom at work and give AJ the phone on speakerphone to entertain him.

It is raining. I love the rain and can't remember the last time it rained here. Hopefully, next months water bill won't be $190.

7:40 a.m. coffee is such my friend!

8:00 a.m. breakfast. toast, banana, yogurt.

8:20 a.m. AJ uses every bit of sign language he knows to tell me he is done with breakfast. It is so funny when he wants something and forgets the correct sign. He goes through every sign he knows until he gets it right.

8:30 a.m. 60 second shower.

8:55 a.m. into car to head to gymboree

9:15 - 10:00 a.m. Gymboree. Preston and Brooke are now in AJ's class and they had a blast. AJ climbs a ladder for the first time. He tried to climb over the baby gate yesterday. Thanks, Dede, for the awesome pictures. You rock!

10:15-11:45 a.m. To Costco. had to buy new cell phone because I dropped mine and busted the LCD screen so I was in there FOREVER. Luckily, I could give my old phone to AJ and he was happy the entire time. What is it about phones and kids anyway?

12:15 p.m. AJ fell asleep in car, so down for nap without lunch. I hope he doesn't wake up too soon because he is hungry.

12:25 p.m. laundry

12:45 p.m. play with my new phone, a blackberry curve. REJOICE!!! My phone numbers were saved to the sims card.

1:00 p.m. AJ is awake. Darn! he will go to bed with the chickens tonight!

1:30 p.m. lunch. raisins, cheddar cheese, turkey, lima beans, blueberries. Note to self...when AJ gives you the "all done" sign, don't put more lima beans on his tray unless you want to mop the kitchen. Tom is home early to do some work from home.

2:46 p.m. more laundry. smoothie for afternoon snack. wish I knew where AJ put the lid to the blender.

3:00 p.m. finish paperwork from PT visit I made yesterday and make some work-related phone calls.

4:00 p.m. off to see a patient and pick up groceries to make a homemade pizza. AJ took a short nap in the jogging stroller while Tom took him for a run. He finished his nap with the stroller parked in the middle of the kitchen.

6:15 p.m. supper time. Avocado, black beans, rotisserie chicken, blueberries, grapes

7:15 p.m. bath time and bedtime routine.

8:00 p.m. lights out for AJ.

8:30 p.m. finish patient notes

9:15 p.m. play with phone.

11:oo p.m. devotional.
11:30p.m. lights out.

Bless your heart. I am so sorry that he isn't sleeping well right now. It is just a phase and I am hoping it will pass soon for you. I have been very fortunate with Preston, but you never know when the ball will drop. My thoughts and prayers are with you!
Love you much

I love the day in a life and the new look of the blog. We had fun spending so much time with the both of you this week. You and Aleck are such a blessing.
