Long Week!

I have never been so happy to say goodbye to Spring Break!
My son is punishment times 10 for every bad or mean thing I have ever done ever.
I took him and his sister to Sea World this past weekend.
It's three hours from us. But suppose to be "totally" worth the trip.
It wasn't. At least not for me.
Alivia and the friends we met there seemed to have a great time.
Which I am thankful. Jackson, well, it is hard to say if he had fun or not. He alternated between fussing to be held/carried (which I did ALOT) and getting in trouble for being mean to others.
Plus side, my biceps are looking amazing.

I am now on the lookout for some good parenting books to help me with him.
To start, I'm looking for The 5 Languages of Children.
If anyone has other good ones, send the suggestions my way.

Spring is here. With it's very first thunderstorm!
While I don't much care for rain because it keeps kids indoors (especially since this week is spring break), I LOVE thunderstorms.
Love the boom of thunder. Love the pitter-patter of raindrops.
Love the way it makes you want to cuddle in bed or under a blanket.
And I really love the when the electricity goes out and we all have to sit around with candles and play games and enjoy each other.
While I will miss the semi-cold and the 1% chance of snow(don't forget, I live in Texas), I will embrace the storms and be ever grateful for what they mean.
Yeah for Spring!

Spring is in the Air

For real. You can always count on Texas to bring you warm weather first.
And then for no reason get extremely cold again.
But whatev. Maybe not this year.
It is beautiful right now.

On a side note. I dusted the desk I'm sitting at like five hours ago.
And what do I see forming right before my eyes . . .!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The pledge commercials lie.
