My Little Ninja Turtle..

It’s been a wonderful night of mommy guilt for me.

Guilt that I have too many kids that aren’t mine in my house and that I never get to spend any time with Little E.

Guilt that he’s going to end up resenting me someday because I didn’t spend enough time with him…but I had time for everybody else.

Guilt that wraps around my heart and squeezes me till I can’t breathe sometime.

Why do I feel like this?  Why? Why? Why?

“Because you’re a mom”, some will say.

That’s not good enough for me. There has to be more of a reason than that.

Cause inside I feel like a horrible person.  A person who can’t just spend 10 minutes of undivided attention with her 4 year old.  A mom who feels like she has missed out on the last three years of her little man’s life…even though I. have. been. right. here.

For me, it’s not an option to get rid of the kids that I babysit, nor do I want to in a sense because I think if it were just the two of us Little E and I would probably get bored very quick with each other.

But how do I find the balance without feeling like somebody has run over me with a monster truck….(and not the toy ones)?

This is  my heart….bare before you.  Please don’t stomp all over it…and if I babysit your child please don’t take offense to it.  It’s not meant to be that way…this is just me…tonight…feeling like crap.


Blessing: A hubby who listens.

The other day Little E and I were working on his “homework” together.  He only goes to preschool twice a week but he enjoys doing work like they would do in school.  So I got a book from Walmart and we have been working on that together.  The other day we were working on something that involved the word “IRON”.  So I showed him the picture of the iron and I asked him if he knew what it was.  This was our conversation:

Me:  “What is this?”

Little E: “an Iron.”

Me:  “Do you know what an iron is  used for?”  (I was interested in hearing what he had to say because I NEVER use my iron.)

Little E: “Yup…..it’s for putting edge tape on wood.”

Me: “haha Yes honey…in this house that’s what it’s used for.  🙂  But other people use it to get wrinkles out of their clothes.”

Hahaha ……only in my house.  🙂

Today I am thankful for:

A Friend who bring me coffee when I really need it.

A Friend who corrects me on my schedule…who knew it better than I did…so I wasn’t getting all flustered.  🙂  Twice so far today.

A Friend who gives me a break doing kids church so I can sit in and hear my hubby speak.

A Friend who listens to me complain ALOT!

A Friend who is always up for pretty much anything.

A Friend who can make me laugh.

A Friend who can keep me up all night.

A Friend who is a great mother and is great with my kid and the kids I babysit.

A Friend who just stops by when I need a visit.

A Friend who coupons just like me

A Friend who will go in on good deals with me.

A Friend who can laugh at me just as much as I can laugh at myself.

A Friend who helps me out with Pampered Chef stuff when I need it.

A Friend who is truly a friend in all ways.

That friend is: ~ MICHELLE ~

I’m a little late on this one this week….we just got back from the YMCA and got the kids to bed.  Nevertheless…here we go.

I link up with the blog The Little Things We do.  You should check it out!

1.  My favorite feeling in all the world is    the moment when you sink down into a full hot tub when you are enveloped in warmth on a cold night.
2.  My favorite smell is Autumn or the first smell of snow coming.
3.  My favorite taste is   the first candy cane of the season.
4. The most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen was   a sunset on the beach on Grand Manan.  I’ll never forget it.
5. The best sound ever is  Little E’s laugh.  Not his annoying orange laugh….his from the belly laugh.
6. A smell that reminds me of my childhood is  sawdust.  Reminds me of my grandfather.  He was always working with it.
7.  My favorite of all the senses is  sense of sight….Love being able to see and read things.
Have a great weekend everybody!
Blessing:  I only worked half a day and was able to get groceries before company arrived.

I saw this recipe on Pinterest the other day and decided to try it.

The picture doesn’t do it justice but OH MY WORD it was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Good!!!!

You need to try it…seriously.  You can thank me later.  🙂

Here’s the link to where I found the recipe.

Let me know if you made it and if you liked it.  The only one who didn’t like it in my house was Little E because he doesn’t like caramel. (We won’t go there lol)



Blessing:   Yesterday I finally got to try the Pumpkin Pie Blizzard at DQ.  Took me all month…but it was worth it.  That’s my blessing lol.
