I have been busy running back and forth to the pediatrician with my kids. Last week it was my daughter, this week my son. The doctor and I have decided I should have a monthly appointment scheduled since he sees us so often. Now I know what they meant about the first year of school and illnesses.
Its amazing how things change when you have kids. I remember the anticipation of flowers and gifts from my love. A night out on the town all dolled up. Five years later it has turned into Brunch with the kids! Now it wouldn’t have been that bad but for some reason my beautiful kids were “off the chain” at Cheesecake Factory. One wanted to climb on the table the other under. Dumping food on the floor. Talking extra loud. For a moment I thought they were someone else’s kids. Now being a Sporty Momma you gotta stay calm and classy but boy was it hard. Next year we will not be doing the family brunch. I will definitely be calling a sitter. I am off to finish the Godiva chocolates!
You ever put on a dress or outfit and have second thoughts about wearing it…but you wear it anyway? That happened to me the other night. I was so pressed for time and excited about Ladies night out…I wore a dress without my spanks. I did not know how wrong it was until I looked at the pictures. Lesson: take your time getting ready even if it makes you a few minutes late!
What an exciting Super Bowl weekend! From the Celebrity Basketball game, to dinner at Phillipe’s at The Gansevort… we have not stopped moving. Getting in at 5 a.m. was unusual for me but hey sometimes you gotta get your Party on. I am so glad I stepped out this weekend and enjoyed the festivities. Since I only got two hours of sleep I think it is time to shut it down. I hope you all enjoyed your weekend too!!!
It is on and poppin’ in South Florida. Since the kids are a little older this year I get to hang out a little. So far we attended a charity bowling event. After dragging my husband to go, he ended up having more fun than I did. Men are so funny! Tomorrow is the Celebrity Basketball Game. I don’t know how its going to go. We are suppose to rock our Sporty Momma apparel and distribute postcards and who knows maybe even a few freebies. Saturday is Ladies Night. The girls will hit the town and hopefully stay out of trouble. Until then….
After two parties yesterday, I can truly say I am worn out. I did not let that stop me from going to church this morning. I am so thankful for my beautiful family and supportive friends. This business venture is no joke but hey gotta keep pushing!!
This week has been full of ups and downs. From our family member hospitalized to the shirt mix up, to lots of tension headaches…I can go on and on. No matter what curve ball is thrown my way, I will keep hustling and giving God the praise. No pain, no gain right? This weekend is full of parties, shopping and FOOTBALL!!!
It is amazing how God works! He will turn any situation around. He will make your lemons sweeter than lemonade if we surrender it all to Him. No it is not easy but if you trust Him….He will do exceedingly abundantly above all that we can ask or think!
After only 4.5 hours of sleep last night, this morning I rushed to get my kids dressed for school. Wednesdays are chapel days and if you are late they lock you out. (Even PreK3) I learned the hard way last week and had to keep her busy for 40 minutes while her class was in chapel. Made it on time and met my Mommy friend at Starbucks for my tall white mocha followed by Gymboree.
After making a visit to the hospital to see my mother in law (she is slowly getting better) there was dance and picking up my Sporty Momma T-shirts. My tension headache hit me hard when I discovered the screen printer ruined 60 shirts! I had to take a few breaths before I exploded. She had the nerve to tell me they would pay for half of the new shirts and the shipping. All I could do was step back and well…I left. My 17 month old was being ….a boy and the time was not appropriate for a response.
So, I realized that we cannot control our circumstances but we can control how we handle them. Goodbye headache! I am too blessed to be stressed! Time to listen to the State of the Union.
Even when things seem bad, I can’t help but thank God for all the things he has blessed our family with. It is hard when a loved one is sick. It takes a toll on you physically and emotionally. I have had tension headaches for three days. I know God doesn’t make mistakes and in spite of our circumstances He will see us through!!! Blessings!
