Today we went on a field trip to LegoLand. First off let me tell you if you haven’t been to LegoLand it is a must. Your kids will have fun and so will you. There isn’t any down side to it. You are spending about the same amount there as you would be at Disney. It was truly amazing.
So, as I said before we went on a field trip to LegoLand. We had a blast. It was fun for the whole family. By the time we got to the vehicle my girls were passed out before we even got on the interstate.
Now for the part that drove me up a wall. I understand that kids are crazy and get extremely excited when at a theme park that pretty much revolves around them. I’m all for it, but you are still the parent. It is your job as the parent to make sure that they are following the rules, behaving and being respectful to others around them. That means that you don’t allow them to climb on things that says NO CLIMBING ON THE LEGOS! Please read the sign that is right in front of your face. Also do not allow your children to skip others while waiting in line. Do not allow them to push other people without saying sorry. Don’t be rude. You as the parent are teaching your children how to behave. So, please set the example.
Now I am not saying that my girls were perfect little angels today because they were not. Though I did not allow them to get away with climbing on the legos. I did not let them skip others in line. I most definitely made them apologize for pushing others, walking in front of somebody, or just plan out being rude. I made the say thank you to those that helped them. Those who allowed them on the rides. It is called manners and I make my girls use them even when we are in a theme park just as I would if we were at home or in a restaurant.
We have punishments. Yes, I may swat my girls on their butts, but mostly I will just not allow them to do what they want. Such ride a certain ride, go on a field trip, play with a friend , etc. There are so many options out there for punishments. Please be the parent and teach your children.
Sorry, that this was a rant, however I seen more of this today and it just plain out upset me. I could not believe that this is what is happening. Parents wonder why their children do not listen and this is why. You don’t make them.
This is my favorite picture of the day! Daddy Daughter Moments! They are what I live for! Just wanted to share an awesome moment of the day!
I would like to start a book club, but not a hundred percent sure on how to go about it. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am not very good at blogging things. I am going to do my best to keep with it and put my thoughts to paper. So, this is the first of the line.
My oldest is sick. She isn’t feeling good. I think that she has a mixture of a sinus infection and cold. I am have given her different combinations of medicine. Every time I giver her a dose of medicine she tells me it isn’t working. That she needs something else. She doesn’t do being sick very well. She very rarely gets sick and when she doesn’t it takes its toll on me and her.
So, we have been sleeping as much as possible. She has been sleeping, mommy on the other hand isn’t. I have been having a hard time sleeping with her being sick. I guess I am scared that something will happen if I have asleep. You would think that would that as they got older I would be know by now that nothing is going to happen when they are sick, but it just seems to get worse the older they get.
I am hoping that my youngest doesn’t get whatever my oldest got. It is always rough when two of them are sick. That is why I refuse the flu shots every year. Nobody is going to help me take care of them when they are sick. So, I don’t see a point in giving them the flu shot. If they are going to get the flu then let it happen, not give them a shot to give them a flu.
I know that my thoughts are all over the place and I am sorry for that. I hope to put them in order. Hope that you can get through them.
I am a mom of two. My husband works 12:00am-8:00am. I am currently trying to talk to him about me going to work from 7:00am-3:30pm. He doesn’t seem like he is to much up for the idea. Where I am all about it. He can sleep while I am at work. I am able to bring the girls with me. I can tend to them while I work. Also do both of their school work. Come home, make dinner, clean the house, tend to laundry and still get to see him. I see it as best of both worlds. I also see where he is coming from. He doesn’t sleep really well while I am not home. He also doesn’t want me to stress, but I don’t think he sees where I am coming from on the whole thing. I know that it isn’t a lot of money, but it is a little extra. Even if it goes for the girls extra curricular actives and I see it as less stress on him. We just went a weekend vacation and he is stressing about how much we spent. I could help with that a little. At least I think I can. A couple hundred dollars is more then what we had. I just want to be able to help him out with some of the money. It will also get me out of the house for a couple of hours and he can sleep without the girls waking him up all the time. I am sure that it will be an adjustment, but I think it is something that we can do. He is also suppose to be going to day shift at the beginning of the year so, it wouldn’t be for very long. I can also come home and take a nap with him before he goes to work.
Thanks for listening to my little vent of things. Hope that you have a good night/day.
Ever had one of those weeks that everything is going wrong and you can’t seem to get your feelings under wrap? I haven’t had one of those weeks since my eldest was born.. This week has been a very hard week! I can’t seem to stop crying.. I feel as if my world has come crashing down and to top it all off I feel like I am failing as a mom.. I don’t seem to know where I start and where I end anymore! I constantly feel like I am running around like a chicken with its head cut off.. Some days it takes everything I have in order to get out of bed and do what I’ve got to do.. I do though.. I have never really had to understand my feelings.. I am learning though so that I can help my daughters.. I am hoping that next week is better.. I aim everyday for a good day.. I wake up and try for a positive and good.. Some days seem harder then others..
My four year old went outside so she could play in the water. Which is fine. Until she came in and tells me that the water hose is broken. I tell her it isn’t broken and she argues with me and tells me it is broken and it disappeared.
Mornings at my house normally start out with my kids bringing out their blankets and crawling up on the couches till they tell me they want breakfast. Then while they eat I make their beds and get ready to start our day.
It is raining out. Second day in a row. My kids are tired of being inside and want to be out playing. Have pretty much done everything that they can do. They are getting restless. Want to go outside. They don’t understand that they can’t go out and play when it is thundering and lightning. Hopefully soon they will be able to go and play.
This weekend was extremely busy! I’m not complaining. It was full of laughter and awesome memories.
Friday, I had a yard full of kids. Playing in the water hose. Jumping on the trampoline. Playing tag and just having an awesome time.
Saturday, went to the flea market. Lunch, park, trails, wal-mart and then ended the day in the pool. I had seven kids in my truck. Then my husband got off and got right in the pool with them. They had a blast. The oldest was 15 and the youngest was 2.
Sunday, Mother’s Day. Went to my parents to hang out. Ended up going to wal-mart got stuck in the storm. Got extremely soaked. Waited for my husband to get off work went to dinner and then home to have some adult time.
Can’t wait to do it all again this weekend. Might add some extra stuff in there. Summer vacation isn’t far off might as well start it now.
I get shown everyday how important I am to my girls and my wonderful husband. They show me how crazy they are about me. I feel that Mother’s Day is for the ones who don’t get to show their love to their baby’s. Who don’t get to hold them everyday. To the people who don’t get to tell their Mother’s how much they love them and show them that they are important. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommy’s out there. You are each extremely special in your own way. A special Mother’s Day to those who don’t get to hold their baby’s. Who have lost them before they even got to meet them. You are the strongest mom’s out there. I hope that y’all have a wonderful day!
I enjoy being a mom. Anybody can tell you that, but some days my four year old can push my buttons. Ever have an argument with a four year old? Sometimes I don’t even know what I am arguing with her about. Just had a five minute argument about a swim suit.
Four year old: I don’t want to wear that one.
Me: why? There is nothing wrong with that one.
Four year old: it is still wet from yesterday.
Me: fine . Then where your other one.
Four year old: I found this one.
It went on like that for another few minutes.
