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!

"Not My Child" Monday!

It's Monday, and it has been ages since I participated in "Not Me" Monday, , a brutally honest confession of things that I most definitely did not do over the last week. We are adding a twist this week and writing about things our kids definitely did not do. To find out where Not Me! Monday originated, click on the link above to check out MckMama's blog, a blog I absolutely love.
When I happened to pass gas in front of Aleck, my precious 2 1/2 year-old, he did not look at me with the most curious face and say, "Mommy, you poopy? You need a diaper?"
I was walking through the living room and Aleck was leaning over the pack n play talking to Ella. When I looked closer, I noticed he had several small rocks that he had taken out of the gas fireplace insert scattered around Ella's head. Aleck appeared to be headed towards Ella's mouth with a rock. Thankfully, I stopped Aleck before he was able to complete his mission, or so I thought. I checked Ella's mouth and retrieved a rock, but I'm certain that it was an accident and Aleck would never intentionally place a small rock in his baby sister's mouth.
Even though Aleck desperately wanted a small magnet that I had taken away from him earlier in the day he would never push a chair up to the counter and crawl across the stove to retrieve the magnet. Aleck always listens and never disobeys me.
When we were at an indoor play area escaping the Texas heat, Aleck didn't climb to the top of a three story tree house and proceed to scream bloody murder until I climbed past all the other small children and helped him find his way back down. He is so brave and loves going down the super fast slides. At the same play area, Aleck definitely didn't enter the dress up room and slip on some high heels and proceed to clomp around the building. He is all boy and would never be caught wearing girls shoes. He also didn't cry when we where leaving and I made him remove the heels.
