Here is a tidbit about the hectic life I am leading at the moment. So you can see I am a real mom, real person with real drama.

First, my 16 year old, is now driving around town, well not really around town, but to school and back, and a few other places as well. It has been nice, until his truck needed a bit of work, so it is in the shop. Husband said it should be ready to pick up today sometime. Hopefully so, because it is sure nice that he drives himself to and from school. He runs track, and practices can run short or long, you never know when he will be done, so it is nice when he can just drive himself home.

The 13 yo, well he is a teenager, with emotional drama. I swear he is my girl I never had. He has a cell phone, and wants texting so bad… he is begging for it. Only reason for not letting him have it is mainly I am afraid he will get himself into trouble with it, by not using common sense when texting friends etc…
He is my baseball player, and pretty good at it. His coach is bummed his best Catcher, my son, will miss tournament this weekend, due to a Family Wedding. Makes me feel good that he will be missed, but not to worry, we have probably about 6 more tourney’s to go.. plus 9 more league games.

Now for the extra fun part… my sweet blue eyed almost 3 year old, does not want to nap, or go to bed, ever! He is constantly on the move, and this is my boy that used to be on a perfect schedule. Somehow, he is wanting to run his own day, and in the meantime I am getting nothing done around the house. I am exhausted, and totally admire those moms out there with 2 or more little ones under the age of 5, people say do you want to have another one.. (child) I am like, I am getting to old for this. Not really, I am in my 30’s, but still 3 is enough! Now… once again, I will go try to get this little one to nap, and then off I go to run errands when my 13 year old gets off the bus.

    I know how you feel with the little one! My 2 1/2 year old daughter is soooo much busier than her brother was! She never stops… no naps unless we’re in the car! When I think I’m going to get something accomplished, she reminds me that she has other plans! I’ll be praying for you… and your sanity(lol)!

    Kids know what to do to make us crazy, esp when it comes to the sleeping thing! Yet here I am, blogging and reading blogs when I should be in bed, sleeping while my kids are sleeping. =)

    Thanks for cheering me up! I woke up bound and determined to have the best day ever, and you know what, we are no taking a nap… I could not be any happier, unless I won the lottery!
