Dancin' her HEART out!

I have always LOVED front of my sibblings when we were younger, at school dances as a teenager, at the clubs in college and now in front of my kids in my living room.
There is no denying that I would be the mom of a child that would LOVE to dance but my little girl is OBSESSED. She dances all the time...she is now on a performing team and now after her recital she can't get it out of her mind. I'm beginning to think my dreams of a star athlete my be put on the back burner to DANCE...WHAT??!!? whatever, I guess:)
What I would like to brag is Berlin is doing really well and she is TWO years old...the other girls in the class are all almost 4 years and older. This to me shows how much she loves this. These are videos from the rehearsal we weren't allowed to take video or pictures at the real deal. I have ordered the professional video of the actual performances.


Being a mother is such a pleasure and most of the time I post all the many joys that come from being Berlin and Everett's I am going to reminisce about a day from mommy hell so one day when my kids resent me they can refer to this post and say wow our mom was so amazingly good to us!
It was an evening a couple of weeks ago, Michael had to work late and I had just finished making a nice and nutritious meal for Berlin and I. Everett was in his bouncer enjoying some toys. I pull out my chair to sit down and enjoy my dinner with my sweet baby girl. Right after the first bite Everett decides he HATES the bouncer so I go pick him up and again sit down to eat my meal. As I am asking Berlin how her day was and enjoying our sweet conversation Everett soils his diaper. At that moment I thought ya know Ev can just sit in his dirty diaper while I finish my meal I am too hungry to change him right this minute...right after that thought a warm gooey sensation trickles down my leg. From that point on I go change Everett's diaper after I was finished I go to get Berlin and food is all over my cabinets and floor. I then throw them both in the tub since they are now BOTH FILTHY. I get Everett washed up and out of the tub and within that 2 minutes and Everett's room is RIGHT next to the bathroom Berlin gets a couple of inches of water on my bathroom floor. I put her in time out in her room get Everett in his PJ's go to get Berlin out of time out and SHE is NOT in her room. I yell out for her and she comes out of my room in a very nonchalant manner in full make up says "Yeah Mom?"...gotta love mommy hell days! I also documented the poop pants so Everett can pay me back in the future.


So a couple weekends ago I was nursing my daughter back to health as she was suffering from a 102 temperature when my entire house shook like an earthquake had started. I thought maybe our umbrella had fallen out on the deck from high winds. I started to look out back when a younger long haired boy bails off of my back yard into a canal ditch behind my house...confused I watch him get out of the ditch and run to the left of my home. Long story short I walk out back YELLING "WHAT THE HELL JUST HAPPENED????" (Everett on my classy:) The 2 boys in the field start to walk towards me with tails between their legs and explain how they were rolling a freaking HUGE truck tire down a hill up the road and it got out of control with Eric trying to stop the tire from hitting my house...UNSUCCESSFUL.

smells so sweet

My husband rocks my world here is a view of my Mothers day flowers hanging in front of my house and then the roses that arrived at my HIM
