Spring Break is over..back to reality. The mom life is a hard life, I am living in tween hood, and teen hood also known as #ILIVEINAMENTALHOSPITAL One day all is well then the next it is not. Someone is having an issue either a attitude issue, a homework issue, a not studying issue, a back talk issue, a health issue, or a crying upset issue for no reason..You name it. Some days I want to lock myself in my room or go to a nice hotel by myself. Then we have days that are magical, and the kids get along and they make me laugh and if I'm lucky everyone likes their dinner. I'm working on letting go a bit...hard one for me but these kids need to feel failure and understand how to have consequences. Add this tough love parenting with hormones and that might explain my mental status.
He paid up, so far things have been cleaner. This week I reminded him again and then explained how I buy for everyone else first and that I do without so they can have everything and they can't even pick up their new clothes. Drew tells Rob "You know she wants my money, she doesn't buy herself anything and that is why she wants to take my money" Oh dear Lord (: Ha Ha I need the crying laughing Emoji inserted here.
Besides this sort of Drama Drew is a great kid..He just finished up playing flag football. He did a great job! We just signed him up for a Saturday only baseball team. Less serious more fun, it's been a while since he gave up baseball. I am so glad he decided he missed it.
Lauren played soccer, and I have no idea where her picture went of her playing. Sorry Lauren, you know mom was at every game. They played at the exact same time so I missed all of Drew's games but Rob coached so he was good and I saw the last game.
The Houston Rodeo is here. Rob and I went to the BBQ cookout and met some of his customers. It was fun! We took a Uber there and home, which was way nicer then parking etc.. We enjoyed the food of course and people watching.
Jaden had a mock trial at school he defended Andrew Jackson, not his first choice. He ended up doing really good!! His trial ended with a mistrial. Jaden is interested in law so he really enjoyed this activity.. I even got a note from a teacher saying she was blown away by how well he was prepared for his trial and how he blew everyone away. He looks pretty cute too!!
My silly silly boy..Everyday he makes me laugh.
With the Crazy times I also have mom time while the kids are in school. It's so nice to meet up with my two BFF's!! I love them both!
Lauren ready for Go Texan Day!!
Just getting ready for summer. A couple weeks ago I power washed everything in the back yard. I love to power wash, so satisfying. This is my normal daily life, such a glam life.
Sonic After school with some of my favorite kids!!
Thank God it was old... The dog and cats are my full time job. I love them but wow they are awfully mischievous. Dexter got stuck in a 40 ft tree for the third time in the last month or so. After four days Rob and I rolled the basket up and thankfully he was hungry enough to jump in. I wish I had a video of us handling Operation Dexter Mission 3!! He only fell at the very end, and is fine. What drama Dexter is... He has been coming in every night now to sleep. He is a cuddler and sweet, he just hates the dog and will pee on his bed. So it's like having a baby again. The cat comes in, then he sleeps for about 6 hrs and then back outside with his early 5:00 am breakfast of course.
Love these days.. Some are hard, but most are happy and fun!!
Everyday they make me laugh and I'm so thankful to be their mom!
