A Fat Tuesday Funny

Well I had planned on fixing some awesome Jambalaya for dinner tonight and getting a King's Cake, but I forgot that Eric was going to be gone to Nashville to see the Predator's play. So instead, me and my stuffy nose are lounging on the couch, watching Dance Mom's and playing with Eli.

I thought I would take this time to share with you one of my finer parenting moments that happened on Sunday. I know this is going to shock you, but Eli still doesn't sleep through the night...ever! For the most part, I have come to grips with the horrible reality, but I still have my moments of insanity.

After being up three times on Sunday night, I finally fell back asleep around 3:oo am. Sadly, it didn't last too long. You can imagine my frustration when I was awakened for the fourth time. I sat up in bed, dramatically thew the covers back and announced to my sleeping husband, "I haven't slept in three years. I'm never going to sleep again."

Eric stirred only slightly at the commotion as I then jumped out of bed, flung my pillow around, and ran face-first straight into the wall. I'm not even lying. There is not, nor has there ever been a door on that wall. I guess in all my exhaustion I was disoriented.

Of course this only added to my frustration as I quickly yelled, "See, I'm so tired I'm running into things."

Ya'll Eric didn't miss a beat. He pulled the covers back up over his shoulders, turned over, and continue to sleep like a baby...or like a baby should.


  1. Your blog makes me smile. I will confess....the reason Hunter ended up sleeping with me for 3 years is because I would not be able to handle NOT SLEEPING. Oh, he started out in his crib, but eventually I couldn't take it anymore. Working full-time, no help...resulted in co-sleeping. be honest, it is something I cherish now. We nap together on the days he doesn't have school, and there is no comparision. He always sleeps longer when we nap together. Now my husband would probable LOUDLY object if I chose to do that with my second one...but if he wants his beauty sleep too, he might just give in. :)
    I have been meaning to tell you for quite some time....there is a couple that has just started attending the church where we are members and they remind me so much of you two! I've almost asked her if she has a sister :)

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
