Cause I Don't Want To Forget

I'm learning that a Momma's heart is confusing and complex place to be.  In it rages a battle.  On the one side, it beams with pride at every milestone a little one reaches, and it anticipates with hope what and who that child may become.  On the other side, that tender heart breaks at every milestone as her baby slips away into childhood and eventually adult hood. The wonder and hope of the future haunted by reality that time travels so very fast. 

That was actually much deeper than I intended and is a poor reflection of what I wanted to be a funny post, but it's from the heart, so we will roll with it.  


This little guy is growing up so, so fast.  He can count to 100, knows all his shaped and letters, and can write and spell his name.  I take no credit for any of this.  We have a wonderful daycare!

He is obsessed with Super Heroes, and claims to look like Captain America based on his blond hair. He still plays sports, but not as often.  When he does, it's usually golf or basketball.  Although, he's recently become interested in disc golf. 

Other than that, he's very much into cars and monster trucks.  Sometimes he even pulls out his Cars 2 Toys and Dinosaurs, but it's rare. 

I have succeeded in brainwashing him to think that every smoke detector in the house is a Santa Cam.  It's ingenious if I do say so myself.

One more (funny) thing I don't want to forget: The other day we were getting out of the van when a large truck started backing up, thus making a beeping sound.  Upon hearing this Eli yells, "Mom, who's horning at us."  Clearly he was confused as to what was going on and as to what word to use.

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
