All About lil o' Me

Just call me your Budget Barista. I have been married for 20 years to the best man on this planet. He's sweet, caring, kind, but most of all he makes me laugh. We have Three adorable kids. A beautiful sweet pea girl, A 'superman' boy, and a love bug baby girl. We just love that we live where people vacation...where the ocean meets the sky. We live a wonderful life. I love my life and I thank Christ for giving it to me. Some random things about me are I enjoy baking, quilting, paper crafting, jewelry making, scrapbooking, and loving on my family. I am a Princess in the Kingdom of the King of Kings, diet coke drinking baby kisser. We are a homeschooling family but are part of a hybrid program where the children attend a 'classroom' 2 days a week and we do the rest at home. It's a blast. We also love to vacation and explore God's world around us. I think that's enough for now. :-)

Velcro days....

As a mom of 3 little ones we have days that we call Velcro days. Tthose are the days that you feel stuck to your kids. Know what I mean? Let me share with you my Velcro days.  It began On Sat. afternoon when the baby came down with a fever. She was cranky, whiny, and cling-y.  She was up a few times in the night and so I got less sleep.  Sunday she just wanted to be held, but by the end of the day she seemed to be feeling much better.

Then this morning we were taking my oldest to school. My son was complaining that his tummy hurt. I thought that it was just "hunger" pains. I fed him and we took my daughter to school, but he still complained that his tummy hurt.  I asked him if he felt sick, no he said.  I asked if he felt like he needed to go poo? No he said. I then asked if he thought he was gonna throw up? No he said. We got back in the car from drop off and drove home, about half way home he says he wants me to hold him. I said we were almost home and that I would the min. we got there. I put my hand on his leg (that's all i could reach).  About a block from the house he started to smack his lips and swallow many times. I thought oh no, he's gonna blow. I parked the car, grabbed him from the back seat, but he just wanted to be held. As his chest was pressed to mine i could feel the heaving in his and pulled back just in time!  Yep, he blew.  As the morning went on he threw up a total of  3 times and wanted to be held/sit together much of the day.  Thankfully, my sister is staying with us and did a few of my chores for me, made dinner, and went shopping too. So, the last few days have been Velcro days.
