Thankful Thursday- Mommy going CRAZY edition

I am thankful for my kids...I am thankful for my kids...I am thankful for my kids!

After the week I have had with the three little joys in my life they are very lucky to still be alive. But aside from it all I am very thankful to have them. (Especially when they are sleeping)

What I miss most about being a kid...

So today I noticed that my kids are getting really dark and tan from playing outside in the sun. It reminded me of when I was young and NEVER got a sunburn. I could play outside all day and be just fine. Now I go outside for just 20 minutes and I have to rub myself down with aloe for three days. Then comes the peeling. I hate that!

Second thing I miss about being a kid is the naps in the middle of the day. Some days I would give my right arm to just be able to take a 10 minute nap. Even if I do find the time to get a nap, my mind is usually going a hundred different places that I can't rest. Know what I mean.

Third thing is energy. I swear my kids don't ever walk. They run everywhere and in three different directions. We could be at the park for 5 hours and then they would still want to play in the back yard when we get home. They never stop talking and asking questions. At times I think they are going to crash any minute and then the next thing I know they get a second wind. They beat me by a thousand miles.

Fourth thing is peace of mind. They only have to worry about mommy and daddy taking care of them. No worries of bills being paid, going to work, what they will get for dinner. They only know that mommy and daddy are going to take care of them. My kids are young enough that they don't know what is involved in taking care of their stinky little butts. They think when mommy says that she does not have the money for what ever crazy little thing they want, that all she needs to do is go to bank and get some. I remember those days. I remember telling my mom when she would tell me that she did not have any money to just write a check.

Of course there are many, many other things that I miss about being a kid. There is of course many things I love about being an adult too (like Margaritas!) but today I miss not being able to sit outside for 10 minutes and be as dark as it would take me sitting 2 months in a tanning bed. That's all I am saying. =)

Knowing Me, Knowing You June

Wow I almost missed this one. Tales from the Fairy Blog Mother started this interview section to get to know each other better. I really love playing along. I have been so busy with work and kids being out of school that I have had no time for myself to do any blogging. Today is an at home day and I have been trying to get caught up on everyone blogs. I missed reading what is going on with everyone.

1. Do you have any pets?

Well kind of. We now have a new adorable little beagle puppy but she is only 2 weeks old and cant come home with us yet. I took the kids over yesterday so that they could pick which one they wanted. Her name is Sophia but more than likely we will call her Sophie which was my name in my high school french class. =) Doesn't that just sound like a cute beagle name?

2. What is your favorite dessert?

I am not really a sweet person. I really prefer more savory dishes. Although I am a sucker for a good brownie. I will never turn one down and can eat a whole pan in one sitting. I am embarrassed to admit to that one.

3. For my fellow blogger out there - are you a stats checker?

No not really. I was so excited when I got blogger but I don't really check stats. Really I don't even know how to do it. I use to when I had my Multiply blog but not since then.

4. Do you have a gaming system?

We have a PS3. I hate that game . All it does is take my husband time away. Him and my step day zone into another world when playing that thing. I have looked for games that I would be interested in to play on it or even kid friendly games but there really isn't any. I would be happy if it was gone.

5. What is your beverage of choice?

Well being a southern girl, of course it would be sweet tea. Nothing is more refreshing that a tall glass of sweet tea on a hot day. Instantly cools me down. Does make me have to run to the bathroom a lot though.
