One True Statement

As I was going threw my Pinterest tonight I came across a pin that said "35 things you will never see again if you were born in the 90's" me being a 90's kid I wanted to take a peak. As I was read I came across a picture from Boy's meet World, a childhood show and this is what the picture said.....
This picture and the saying has really touched me because it is true. There is one man in my life that has proved to me that this saying is more than true someone that I don't look at any different then I do his son "who is my blood." Saying this is just taking my breath away this man has not only been there for me and my siblings  or Kelly's kids, but for my daughter and more importantly he was and is there for my mom and her sister and brother. This is a man that drove me to Maryland just so I could see my uncle his third child graduate from college. Now, I know that he probably won't read this and honestly I don't mind that at all. I just want other people who do come across this blog or who follow my blog already to know that it takes a true man to do what he did. That isn't my full story to tell but what I will say is, God couldn't have let a better man into my aunt's or my mothers life. This is a man that I look up to a man that I hope one day I find for my own children, not only does he look at EVERY single one of us the same he also is a man that is true to his word and a follower of Christ. I have a saying that I try to go by when looking for a guy (now yes sometimes I do get distracted and lose my faith and turn the other way but still) it says "A women's heart should be so hidden in God that a man must first seek God to find her." That is a true statement and it follows with him very well. I just know that one day I will find my "Bob" and when that day comes I know I will feel just like my Mom-Mom did when she found hers and just like my mom and aunt did when they found him as well. I even use a famous statement of his every night with Alaina at dinner that has always stuck with me "it's fine if you don't want to eat your dinner but you can go right up to bed because you won't have enough energy to play" something he still tells us to this day. I just hope he knows how much he is loved by all his kids and his grandchildren and well his grandchildren too. I want everyone to know YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE BLOOD TO BE FAMILY!!! I just hope he knows that he is family and I wouldn't trade a day without him for anything.

Pop-Pop, thank you for always being there for us and loving us unconditionally you are a real man.

Growing up

Today, November Fourth, Two Thousand and Twelve, my 17 month old daughter went to bed with no paci. Now, most parents would be overjoyed and happy, not this momma I have fought back my tears all night, my little baby is growing up. I am very happy to see her giving up something that will mess her teeth up but sad that it was her last real baby thing other than the crib, and her diapers. Well I am off to bed I just wanted to make a note of this that today was the last day our paci was used.

Dragon Tales

"I wish I wish
With all my heart 
To fly with dragons
In a land apart"

If you don't know where that saying comes from then honestly I think you are crazy, but I will tell, you so you aren't completely lost this whole blog, it's from Dragon Tales a cartoon that comes on PBSkids. I remember the first time I ever saw Dragon Tales, of course I was at my Mom-Mom's in her living room probably with no cable back when we actually had to play with toys after our cartoons were over. I was searching on Netflix for shows that Alaina can watch and I come across Dragon Tales now she as of right now doesn't seem to really care for it but I know it will grow on her, I also have watched more episodes then she has but it's only because she has been sleeping most of today. I am going to get off here have a lot I have to get ready for work tomorrow. So, I will leave you with one more saying.

"I wish I wish
To use this rhyme 
To go back home
Until next time"

Some pictures to share

For many years, for many months, for many weeks, and for many days
You have asked for a Blog post, or even just some pictures
As I was looking I came across two photos that aren't quite cliche
I am not doing this out of spite but just for a laugh not for peoples insight

Lets go back and see some things from the past
The good and the bad but lets just think
How much I would take to just go back to the days these pictures were taken and when time went to fast
Or how things use to look before you found out you had a handy man

For example the picture right above shows all the blue 
This is the kitchen I grew up in
How old and tacky, now we have something new
Time for new memories with the updated look all you did was give Ben a book

This also shows true colors of some
That being uptight isn't always fun
It's nice to get a laugh from things in your past
Also look at that there is no sun

Now there is just one more and then we can be done
This one is so much fun
I miss the times with these little ones
Just five weeks apart but they are just alike sometimes at heart 

Remember the times before flat top overs where in our homes
The times where we ran and played and didn't have phones
The times where time-outs and spankings were aloud
The days and nights when we would all hang out

I want these times back
I wish Thanksgiving and Easter were family times again too
When gas wasn't so high and we came to see you all the time
I miss the trips and even the long boring car ride

These pictures aren't to hurt
They are to remind that we all have our own ways
Threw everything family is all that matters at the end of the day
The saying is still true to the day "Home is where your heart is"

Tonight or tomorrow or even in a few weeks
When we both are missing our phone calls, coffe, tea, our brains and even the show Lost
Maybe we should take a minute to remember
We all are always home together because our hearts are never far apart

As tears run down my face now
Because I miss these times
I want you all to remember something
It isn't about the size of your heart, the blood in the family, or how much money you have it's about being there for one another

I love you,
Thank you for driving me so much about doing this and keeping on my back. Remember I am always home with you because in my heart you stay. 

Living Alone

I have came to the conclusion that being alone in a house with just me and Alaina is very lonely. Yes, I love the ups to it my own space, not having 7 other peoples advice on what to do with Alaina, and well my mom not telling me to clean my room every five minutes. Honestly though I hate the quite, not having someone to make me dinner, putting dishes in a dishwasher and getting to unload them (boy did I think I would ever miss the day of unloading a dishwasher but I do I really really do,) well and not having so many closets to pick clothes from. Also, I have learned that housekeeping isn't that much fun and I know why my mom didn't like and still doesn't like when we wouldn't pick up our messes, because Alaina never picks up her toys or her clothes she sometimes even just throws her sippy cup down and leaves it there WITH MILK DRIPPING OUT. Oh, do I know why I miss living at home, it is a change coming from a house of 8 people total to an apartment with only two. I do have respect now for dishwashers, washer and dryers in your house, shower heads that you can take off the hook, painting, being aloud to own a pet, and also a self cleaning oven with a flat stove top. I could vent all day bout how much I want to go "home" but I also know I wouldn't give up my room for anything right now. Speaking of living alone, I need to pick up and put my laundry away (that my mommy so kindly did for me) before I bring Alaina home.

“How did it get so late so soon?
Its night before its afternoon.
December is here before its June.
My goodness how the time has flewn.
How did it get so late so soon?”
Dr. Seuss 

When I read this all I can think about is how I wish time would slow down. How life would be if it didn't get "so late so soon." This saying by this great man makes me realize that every minute and every second count and how I need to not wish time would hurry up because at the end of the day I will want to know where my day went.
