MAY DAY Haiku Friday

Hello, birthday month! 
And anniversary, too
Oh and mother's day
May is so busy! 
BFF's baby shower
And several play dates
Plus a Dodgers game
A few doctor's appointments
No moments to spare! 


I just like my kids.

 These are their fuzzy heads as they each snuggle under one arm.
This was at the park.

As I was driving home from work for lunch today, a Trace Adkins song came on the radio called "You're gonna miss this." I'll put the lyrics below. Sometimes, like the last twelve weeks of Husband working nights, I get so tired of how hard it is being a mom. Of how tired I am at the end of the day. Of how needed I am all the time for every little thing. But I really will miss this. These little people that complete me while draining me. The helping of the homework. The milestones. Good and bad, they're my everything.

She was staring out that window, of that SUV
Complaining, saying I can't wait to turn 18
She said I'll make my own money, and I'll make my own rules
Mamma put the car in park out there in front of the school
Then she kissed her head and said I was just like you

You're gonna miss this
You're gonna want this back
You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast
These Are Some Good Times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you're gonna miss this

Before she knows it she's a brand new bride
In a one-bedroom apartment, and her daddy stops by
He tells her It's a nice place
She says It'll do for now
Starts talking about babies and buying a house
Daddy shakes his head and says Baby, just slow down

Five years later there's a plumber workin' on the water heater
Dog's barkin', phone's ringin'
One kid's cryin', one kid's screamin'
She keeps apologizin'
He says They don't bother me.
I've got 2 babies of my own.
One's 36, one's 23.
Huh, it's hard to believe, but ...


Busy Damn Weekend Pics!

 This fuzzy bun has been in our yard before. Next time I catch him, he will be mine.
 This is a caterpillar that is devouring my milkweed and will become a Monarch!
 Reagan Library with some out of town guests. Stormy skies and two of my loves.
 Grease Lightning!
 Air Force One and a chopper. 'murca
 My little Who from Whoville

Goodbye Jan Haiku Friday

Work wife leaves today
She's been with me for nine years
Through four pregnancies
She's my diary
Knows more about me than most
And she still likes me
I sure will miss her
And our lunches together
Man. This is sure sad.


Before & After

 Christa inside January 2014 and outside April 2015.


Legoland Weekend Pics

 Here is the father of my children with my children.
 Christa sure had some fun being able to wreak havoc on the land.
 Literally had to pry Casey away from his BFF Emmet
 He's such a good sport. We took SO MANY pictures with the real camera.
 Nothing is more fun than the Legoland Hotel. Nothing.
 Casey rode on so many rides! He was so brave!
 I love my kids. Sigh.
 Look at this hot mess after a day of theme park good times! Legoland hotel has a buffet where families eat and it was likely more rowdy there than at a Viking round table.
 Hotel pirate selfie! I LOVE THIS HOTEL! AND PIRATES!
Then on Monday after we got burned out entirely we hit the aquarium before heading home. So much fun you guys. I wish I could live at the hotel. And never work again ever.


Blah, Blah, Blah Haiku Friday

It's a holiday
Two different folks brought donuts
To my work today
Tomorrow I have
A funeral to attend
And then a party
Sunday and Monday
We're headed to Legoland
No dull moments here!
