I spoke too soon.

I got not one, but two phone calls today. The first one, a warning. Addison is not listening, she is refusing to nap, and keeping everyone awake. If she continues you will have to come and get her. Fifteen minutes later, the phone rings again. COME GET HER! Really Addison?!?!?! You have been doing so good, why? So now mommy is sad. Sad that she has to hear that you are not listening. I try not to tell her that I am mad at her. I like to tell her I am sad, when she doesn't listen. But when she listens I am HAPPY! So as we drive home from school and I tell her that I am sad. She said she is just a little upset. I asked her why? She says because I missed you today and  I love you. Awww, how can I stay sad? But I stay strong. She promises that she is going to make me happy tomorrow, and that she is sorry mommy. She will take a nap and listen tomorrow. I surely hope so!

I am proud to announce....

That Addison has fully adjusted to her new school and is doing WONDERFUL!!!! It was brought to my attention today that she is the news reporter for the school, not just the class. She knows who is who and what is going on, whose mom is whose etc. She also knows the greeting as to how they answer the phone. You think she spends just a little bit of time in the office? HMM! Her teachers say she is so smart, and her vocabulary blows them away. Well DUH! She is my kid. I am such a proud mommy. Now only to get her to keep her mouth shut.... Any suggestions?

Being A Mom

It takes a special someone to be a mom. I do not think everyone out there is cut out to be a mom. Some days it's easy. Other days it is so hard, and it makes me cry. I have never felt so much joy, heart ache, fear and love for someone until I became a mom. I pray that I am not screwing up my child. I take each day as it comes. Each bump as we hit it, and do the best that I can do. I hope when she is older she understands the reason I am gray is because she started young at testing my patience. I love you Addison Jo, more than you know.

XOXO,
Mommy

Yes, Mommy gets sick too!

Pass me the BOOGIE WIPES PLEASE! The pharmacist thinks I am crazy, as does my daughter and everyone else. But I have been sick for the past 9 days! It is awful. I am going to spare you the gross details of this cold. But it is really kicking my behind. So I have now started to wipe my nose with boogie wipes, and I am in love! I was in love before because they made such a difference with Addison. They truly work. Addison thinks I am just faking. She doesn't understand that mommy gets sick too. If she is not sick I guess no one else can be. She is trying to take care of me, she keeps sticking her thermometer in my throat and looking in my ear for big bird. She is such a big helper. She wants to be a doctor today, we shall see what tomorrow brings.

Not Me Monday!

I did not open the box of chocolate and take a bite out of each piece while mommy was not looking, nope not me!

I most defienetly did not unroll the whole roll of toilet paper when mommy asked for a tissue. NEVER!

I did not hide under my bed and let mommy tear my room apart looking for me. Nope!

Mommy did not tell me I was pushing her buttons today, so I leaned over and pushed the buttons on her jacket. Would I do something like that? NO!

My mommy has got to have more patience than anyone I know. She must really love me.

Happy Valentines Day!

Today was her first school Valentine's Day Party. She was not excited, until she saw the cupcakes, suckers, and CANDY! I was happy to get to volunteer and spend the morning with her at school. Although I think I may have embarrassed her. What do you think?

But overall, she LOVED it. She enjoyed getting her valentines day cards, and treats. It was so adorable to watch all the kids. They all had such a good time.
