The Breakfast Of Champions

They did it, ya'll.  The Louisville Cardinals brought back the National Championship title to the Commonwealth.  That's the good news.  The bad news is that the night went just as I predicted it would go.

Eli would not go to sleep, and there wasn't much I could do because Ellie was still up at midnight from all the yelling, cheering, and celebrating.  Shortly thereafter, things got interesting.

For starters, we could not find a single pull-up.  So, we put Eli to bed in a swim diaper...mistake number one.  Additionally, Ellie hadn't pooped since Saturday, so we gave her Miralax (per doctor's orders) before bed...mistake number two.

After finally falling asleep, Ellie woke up crying.  When I went to check on her she had had a MAJOR blowout.  I'm talking poop up her back, through her sleeper, and on her swaddler.  I cleaned her up, changed her, fed her, and put her back down only to be awakened by Eli shortly after.

When I picked him up to put him back in bed, I was immediately soaked from where he had peed though his swim diaper.  So, I changed kid number two and put him in our bed to sleep since I wasn't about to change the sheets on his bed.

Needless to say, everyone was exhausted this morning, so Eli stayed home from daycare.  He played around the house while I cleaned and worked on laundry.  We're finishing the day by enjoying the beautiful spring weather, and hoping for a much better sleep tonight!!

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
