Come join me on my crazy adventures of trying to balance being a great mom,, running a childcare buisness in my home,, being a fun loving wife, and making ends meet with never enough cash. It's a crazy ride, but someone's got to run it!

A great mother's day
Another lovely weekend was had here! Saturday morning the 2 oldest kids had soccer games. They both did amazing. I'm really proud of of those 2. They have both improved so much over the years and they both enjoy playing soccer a lot! I also went to the farmers market Saturday morning and got some fresh eggs, meat, jalapeno mustard(which is very yummy!), some more rhubarb, and a dish scrubby thing. :) After the soccer games we picked up Jessie's friend so she could have her birthday sleepover. She will be 12 tomorrow! I can not believe I will be the mother of a 12 year old that is going into the 7th grade next year! It's so hard for me to wrap my head around. I still feel pretty young at heart and to think that I've been a mom for 12 years is crazy~ The girls had fun,, they made and decorated some cupcakes all by themselves
Arn't they cute! Then after that we took them bowling which was pretty fun. Jess is a pretty good bowler, she beat me the first game! She must take off after her daddy.
Sunday was Mother's Day. Hubby had asked me what I wanted to do on mothers day and I said I didnt want to cook or clean. Well for the first time in 12 years he really tried hard to make it a good mother's day for me! He let me sleep in! And when I woke up he had cleaned the kitchen and living room and was in the process of cleaning the bathroom!!!!!!! Then he made us all omelets. We went to a local lake/park and met up with my mom, grandparents, and sisters and we hung out and let the kids play and got pizza and had a picnic. The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day outside. I was happy that hubby was able to fish while we were there because he had worked so hard here at home, he deserved to get to do something he likes to do to. We came home and he then cleaned the bedroom!!!! I can not explain how wonderful this all was for me and how amazed I am that he did all this. .Anyone that really knows my husband knows that this is very not normal! I am so proud of him and love him soooo much! The kids had made a few things at school for me and gotten me a few seed packets of flowers. So I planed them in a few pots out in the front yard. We also got some seeds planted out in the garden. I can't wait til they start popping up and we can have fresh veggies we grew ouselves!
So I can defiantly say this was my best mother's day ever! It's so nice to feel appreciated every once in a while and he said that thats why he did it, so I know that even though he doesnt show it he really does love and appreciate everything that I do!!
