do i dare??
welcome! this is my attempt at getting back into the blogging world. a BOY mom blog hop! what better way than an introduction to a bunch of new blogs where i can learn, laugh and commiserate?
this little, unattended blog is about my life as a mom. as a wife. as a daughter of the King of Kings. a homeschooling mom. an ER nurse. all the dirty, nitty gritty details. the pains and the laughs. at least, that is what i want it to be about.
i have four children. TicTac is 9, my firstborn son. he loves to learn, as long as it is a subject he chooses (i.e. not math). he is eager to make people laugh, although that is not where his gifting lies. so he is incredibly envious of his younger brother, #2 Bonobo who is 7. this one... he can make a rock laugh. he is super silly. he likes to torture his younger sister, Stinkerbell who is 5. she is my only girl... poor thing! she had to give up her spot as the baby when our third boy showed up (thank you DTV). number 3 boy is the Moose! named for how big he was on his entry (he actually broke his clavicle on the way out) and now it is apt to liken him to the bull moose in a china shop. he likes to destroy.
let’s see... games my boys love. well. they can turn any animal, vegetable or mineral into something explosive. they will also turn games like chutes and ladders into war games. so i am not sure i am qualified to weigh in on this one... they do like playing Monopoly Deal (card game) and Angry Birds, of course.
what else is there to tell you about me and the family? i have been married for almost 13 years. my hubby, aka the KISA, is my best partner in crime. he pitches in when i am at work, and lets me sleep in when i work a mid or night shift. he does kids baths, cleans toilets and mops kitchen floors (don’t hate me). he also treats me with respect and loves me even when i don’t deserve it. i am blessed beyond belief.
my day is full of the small stuff like laundry, bloody knees, sibling rivalry and the like. i dream of being the mom who never yells, the wife who always has a hot meal ready and the FlyLady shining sink, and the RN who never loses her cool. but i am not. i am an imperfect, human with SIN abounding. i yell. i lose my patience. i have arguments with my husband in my head over stupid little things and then lay into him when he comes home. there is at least 3 piles of unwashed laundry in the basement. and 3 more that need to be folded. i am me. i think i avoid blogging because i am afraid i will compare myself to others and then be sorely disappointed.
but... here goes. another try. will the blogosphere be forgiving?? we shall see... will i just accept who i am and where i am and be content? sure hope so. maybe you will stick it out and see with me... if you have hung in this far, take a look around. look at some old posts. maybe you will find a kindred spirit.
for some reason, i cannot get the button to work! so, if you want to go check out the other Moms in this great hop, go to the MOB Society and join in the fun!!
