How long does it take to get in a "normal" routine for school age children? I feel as if our life cannot be in a routine since I am working third and second shifts, not to mention starting school next week (which I am also starting to get very nervous about!)

Charli Beth had a wonderful first week of school, although she has been extremely wild every day whenever I pick her up. This is so very unusual for her especially since they have rest time during the day although she does not sleep. The girl will not take a nap to save our lives.

She finally crashed out after a birthday party on Sunday afternoon around 6 or 7 and slept all night. That was amazingggg. She has never went to bed this early, but I knew it would not last long since she did not fall asleep until 9 o'clock tonight. I hope this week will be as easy to wake her up as the last week was!

I am still walking her to her class room each morning and plan to do that for the next little while. I get some dirty looks by the other parents of older children (not sure why?) but I guess I disrupt their morning traffic flow with my big booty walking in their parking lot.

CB takes me to her "locker" each morning and puts her items away but forgets to grab her lunch box and folder to take to the class room with her -- this is the reason why I am there =) In a few weeks, if I can teach Charli how to unbuckle the bottom of her car seat she will then get out with the older children on the sidewalk. There are teachers out there to assist the kids out the car but I have never seen them help a preschool child out their car seats. Miss Priss will probably still be in a car seat when she starts Kindergarten so they had better start helping out now!

She loves her teacher Ms. Lesley and has already learned quite a few songs, numbers and other things. I cannot wait to see what all she continues to learn this year!

These are pictures from Gulf World in PCB from our trip, I have been pretty lazy about getting the rest of our photos on the computer. I will add some later on...
I cannot believe that she let ^ Duke kiss her, his teeth were NASTY!
I hope she picks a better boy to kiss in the future ;o)

You look gorgeous in that picture! The last one just made me smile so big, precious! You should just tell those other mothers to stick it! ha!! I hate it when other moms give dirty looks just because we don't do something exactly like they do!! CB is a doll girl!

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
