Something Amazing Just Happened



Something truly amazing happened in our little apartment. It was just an ordinary day; not a hint of what was coming. And now, its like life itself has changed.

I will tell you what happened; but I doubt you will even believe me. That's why I took a picture. I needed proof that it was really happening.

So here it is:



My son asked to do the dishes.

 I was only able to take this picture after I regained consciousnesses.

For being 5, he did a pretty good job. I had him do the silverware and the plastic dishes. He didn't use very hot water; but he liked scrubbing them because it made bubbles so they were scrubbed very very well.

So I'm thinking since he had fun doing this and its good practice, maybe I should make this a daily/weekly thing? He doesn't have any chores that he has to do, except picking up the toys he got out. So maybe its time for him to have something he has to do around the house.

Of course the moment I make it mandatory that adorable smile is going to disappear.

But if it means a couple less dishes for me to do...I think I can live with it.

Do your kids have regular chores they do? If so, what are they and around what age did you implement them? I would love to see how other mothers handle this!

Back From My Break & Ready to Blog!



I took a break from blogging a few months ago; but now I am back and ready to party!!

Get out the decorations and streamers! Time to get dolled up and go dancing!!

... ...

Oh who I am kidding? I'm a mom. Which means its hair in a pony tail, spit up on my shirt, and Spongebob on the tv.


Updates: 

Kaylee Sue is growing up so fast. She is now 6 months old; crawling all around and eating baby food. She has two teeth which is just too much cuteness to handle! 



She was squirming so much and trying to grab my camera this is the only picture I got that showed her teeth.



How can you not just love that face??






The other day I painted her toenails and put her in a cute little summer dress. She looked so beautiful and lady like!



She loves trying to get my camera when I'm taking pictures of her. Can't you just see the rottenness in those eyes?



Darius is doing very well too. He is loving being a big brother; he asks to hold her all the time, runs to her if she gets hurt, and covers her in hugs and kisses. I'm so proud of the way he treats her and takes care of her.


Don't let this picture fool you. He may look like an innocent little boy here, but he is still as crazy as ever! 


All in all life is going good. I'm excited to reconnect with everyone and get back into blogging!!

Taking a Blogging Break



I've been thinking a lot about it the last few weeks; and I have finally decided that I am going to take a break from blogging. I really really enjoying blogging but it does take time to do it well and time is something I don't seem to have a lot of.

I don't feel like I can devote the time that is needed to make my blog good right now. There are other things I need to be focusing on; the big one is Darius' schooling. We are going to start kindergarten soon and I need to be focusing on that instead of trying to come up with post ideas.

I SO appreciate everyone who has visited and commented and shared the bloggy love with me and my tiny blog. Thank you to everyone for sticking around!

I am not going to delete my blog because I am hoping this is just a break. I want to come back to it after a while; maybe give myself some time to come up with new ideas.

Again Thank You to everyone who has come and shared my simple little life with me! Hopefully you will be seeing us again before too long!
