This past weekend I spent every waking moment with my son.  This is a love and sad time for me.  Whenever the hubby works the weekend which is every other week, the boy and I tend to spend alot of time with each other.  And sometimes it is tiring because he insists on waking me up sooooooo early in the am and then when Monday comes and I am at work, I miss him like crazy.  I miss the "mom, fix this" and the "mom, juice" and of course my personal favorite the "uh oh's".  He is a joy to have around and I can say I am never bored.   I still love playing trucks with him and fixing the same one over and over.  And sometimes when he gets into something he shouldn't and after I correct him I smile a little because he is just that cute.  

Last night while saying prayers I asked him who he wanted to bless.  Here is the list...In order.

Pap, Nana, George, Ruby, Rocky (?lol), Racheal...I asked him what about dad, he then blessed Dad's truck.  

ok kid, got that Jesus?  Like I said, never bored.  

I had to share that, So back to my title. New Goals.  Potty training.  I refuse to buy anymore diapers.  Pull ups and underwear that is us.  He will be potty trained by the end of next month.  That is my goal.  I know I can make it happen.  

Another goal.  Feeling happy with my life NOW.  Lately I have read a few random things on women who have written the need to compare themselves to other women and not living up.  So therefore they feel inadiquate and depressed.  This is me, so me.  It seems when we see other mom's doing fun and awesome things with their kids we loose site of the cool and awesome things we do with our kids.  Therefore putting their cool things above ours because the world has set that standard for us.  So we think we are a failure, like me and potty training.  I ask time and time again, is it me? Is it my fault?  Am I not dedicated enough?  HECK YA  I AM. The boy is just not ready! lol Its a funny thing being a mom.  We want the very best for our kids and we strive so hard for it, leaving behind one best thing is for their parents to be happy.  Happy parents make happy kids.  Something I hope I can learn to live by as the years go by.

So, with that said, I cleaned and mopped my house because a clean house MAKES ME VERY HAPPY!!

This should be my new blog title!  lol.  Life is never dull with my only child.  Right now he has moved from obsession with trains to trucks.  And not just any trucks "MONSTER TRUCKS".  Given all caps because it is meant to be said with some enthusiasm like the boy says it EVERY time.  He also loves the Cars series. Well the husband and I were walking through Walmart, our least favorite place, when we happened upon a Cars Tshirt.  BUT not just any run of the mill cheesy animated character Tshirt.  These Cars characters got it, MONSTER TRUCKS!  And with a $6 price tag it was definitely going home with us. 

So this am we had our normal routine of running late for preschool and I for work when I had the brilliant idea that the boy should wear the new shirt.  He would not stop saying "queen" and "MONSTER TRUCK" over and over.  It was adorable.  However what was not adorable was were the events that followed.  I live in Florida, why was it 55 degrees outside the first day of Spring?  Luckily I had a sweatshirt for the boy in the car so we hopped in and headed to school.  Before I went to get the boy out of his car seat I put the sweatshirt on him to keep him warm until the sun decided to show up. WELL, he was not happy that I, me, apparently a foolish mom slash woman covered up the beloved MONSTER TRUCKS to the point that he could no longer see them.  What in the world was I thinking?!?! 

He survived, sucked it up and walked into his classroom where we quickly took it off and he proceeded to point at his chest with that foolish grin and say "queen! MONSTER TRUCKS!". 

On another note about school, one of his favorite teachers told me with amazement that she had never seen a 2yr old that actually knew ALL the letters and numbers.  I told her that while he does not know them in the order they go in, He has known them for some time.  I felt a little vindicated because I always say how smart he is, but feel like people just think because I am his mom I have to say that.  NOPE, he is a genius and other people are starting to catch on! Booya!  haha.  LOL, Just so whomever reads this and doesn't think I am full of myself, my son who is a blonde still occasionally runs into walls because he walks looking up.  OK OK, he does it alot!  Poor kid.

I have failed horribly at keeping up with my blog.  I promised myself I would try to journal these times for my son so as my memory fades he will look back and know I was one cool mom.  Ok maybe just look back and say glad he made it out alive.  Either way it would be documented.

The Etsy store has taken most of my free time that I used for writing this blog and I have to say, I am loving it!  I get to know so many awesome people.

Life has been hectic as Jackson has started preschool and the adapting process was a bit rough and recently we finally had a breakthrough, he didn’t cry or grab for my leg when I have been dropping him off...YAY!

I think we are going to make it….

The month of February was especially difficult because we ALL kept getting sick.  I think we had 4 visits to the Pediatrician, 2 visits to the walk ins, and 5 days out of work.  It was a trying month.  But here we are, on the mend and looking forward to family visiting us soon and Easter.  I even got a really girly Easter dress to wear.  Yeah, that's right, I get a new dress for Easter just like I have done since I was 5. So what?! lol 

I really do hope to post more pics of us going through this life we lead but I am in the process of trying to start a blog for my business, so that is also taking some time away from this one I started so many years ago. 

This weekend the husband and I will be celebrating our wedding anniversary, 5 years!  Its actually not until the 22nd, but the husband has to work, so you take what you can get, right?  I also got a dress for that occasion.  What? I like dresses.  So if you keep up with my blog, hang in there, I promise I won't always be boring and I promise to post more pics so you won't have to suffer through my bad grammar and spelling without pics.  haha.
