Pass the lyson

One word: stomach bug! ! !

I swear that hubs and I had a verbal agreement while dating that when we adopted our gorgeous first child (remember I was never going to get pregnant?!?!) I would handle everything, diapers, rashs, feedings and appointments, the only thing he would have to do is handle big kid vomit, because .... I .... just .... can't. I CAN'T !!!!!

This past Saturday my little man was attacked by the latest stomach bug that has hit his Kindergarten class. I'm putting on my best "mama's got you" face, while trying not to be sick right on top of him. The whole time, hubs is covering his face laughing, knowing how horrible it was for me!!!!

After the 2nd round of barf buckets he finally jumped in when I had to tap out!!!!

All that to say, have a written agreement set in stone, maybe have it framed and put under glass to keep it safe and sound for such a situation as this !

Mamavation Monday - My God is Bigger

Good Morning My Amgias! 

Its finally looking like spring here in the "jerse"! We are going to reach highs in the 70's almost every day this week!!!! 

Kids will be running around outside, fresh air will be blowing through this house that has been locked up tight all winter,  and mama will feel the warm sun on her face! 

This winter was a rough one for me. Facing some super stinky health issues, dealing with loss of cherished friendships, and loosing a family member that fought the brave fight against cancer. 

I found myself feeling down most days, with a real struggle to keep my head up and focused on my tasks at hand: raising these awesome kids ! 

The other day this image came across my personal Facebook page 

and it was like the hand of God himself was showing me it was time to snap out of it!  I needed to realize that as big, bad, and scary as some of this stuff might be, my God is even bigger. And He will carry me through! 

So Mamavation Monday (mamavation: encouragement and motivation to all the mama's out there) today my friends, don't give your problems more strength then the big and mighty God who is watching over us!

Adios My Friends,
