Super Slacker, Super Busy, Super Sickies, Super Mom

Since my last post my world has been turned upside down, inside out, flipped around and back again. The holidays came and went, Pat quit his job at Ben B and went back to Fisher Honda. The kids were sick basically from Thanksgiving to February. In and out of the doctors, urgent care, ER, it was crazy! We pulled the kids out of daycare, hired a wonderful Nanny to care for them at home. Walking zombie is my middle ground anymore.

Working Mom

As I sit here and write this post my eyes are heavy and my head is pounding. I started my day with the sound of my alarm going off at 2am making sure Pat got up in time to go to work. I stay awake until I hear the house alarm set and I know Pat is on his way to work. I lay my head down on my pillow and what feels like seconds later I hear Zane cry. I look at the clock and it's 4am. "you have to be kidding me" I think to myself. I feed Zane, lay him down then Grace is up. Trying not to get frustrated I lay down next to her and get her back to sleep. Lay down and repeat the steps again. At 4:56am Zane finally fell alarm is set to go off at 5am.
With my day already starting at 4am I start to get ready. By 6 both kids are up, fed, dressed and I try to finish making myself somewhat presentable. By 7:10 we are at school and I spend a little time there playing then head to work.
My drive in to work is a blur and all I can really do is think about how every red light that I stop at is allowing more people ahead of me get a parking spot at work before me. Yes I look at the cars in front of me as the enemy and that car I allowed to pull out from the McDonalds drive thru in front of my car could be the deciding factor on whether or not I get one of the last parking spots at work.
After finally finding a parking spot I walk in the cold and get to work. Then I sit till 4:45 doing my job thinking the entire time how much I miss my kids.
I race to my car at the end of the day, deal with traffic and finally get home. I spend about 2 hours with Pat before he heads to bed and those 2 hours are usually filled with making lunches, giving the kids baths, getting clothes ready for the next day. Before I know it Everyones asleep and I'm exhausted and dreading the repeat of activities that will like clock work happen again tomorrow.
I enjoy working, don't get me wrong but I'm missing my family more. I work so we can help provide our children with clothes on their backs, food in their tummies, shoes on their feet, and a roof over their head. Would I stay home everyday if I could? Absolutely! My goal is to not have to work and enjoy this time with my family. Hopefully 2012 will provide a new opportunity.
Ok enough for tonight, I just wasted precious sleeping time! Tomorrow is a new day and new memories.

I love my family

Words can not describe how much I love my family! Never did I think I would be so lucky to have such a wonderful loving husband, a beautiful daughter, and a handsome son. Life is good :)

Yo Gabba Gabba

Grace LOVES the tv show Yo Gabba Gabba! So as a special treat Pat took her to the Fox in Detroit to see them live. She had a blast!!!

Faces of Zane

Zane is growing so fast and we just can't get enough of this little guy!!

We love Fall

Family of 4

Need I say more? Grace was a little less than thrilled ;)
