Whoo you homeschooling Mama’s I applaud you! I cannot wait for the kiddos to be back in school tomorrow! (go ahead & judge, just speaking the truth over here). The routine, the busyness, even the homework (no, not really the homework). But it has been a great break. I had a few mommy failures but for the most part it was a great Christmas time. Here are a few not so proud moments…
1: I exploded on my husband one night. It was his one day off (besides Christmas) the whole break & I could not wait, finally a break from the kids & not even a break but a day I didn’t feel like I was doing it all myself. He is such a great dad & so extremely helpful when he is home, the house is just so much more peaceful when we are both home. But then it happened, he got sick, running a high fever not feeling well, can hardly hold his head up sick. And was I a sweet, caring, thoughtful wife…nope. I yelled at him for getting sick on the one day he was supposed to help me. Failure.
2: Movie day, for an entire day we did nothing productive or to better mankind. We watched How to Train Your Dragon, Toy Story 3, The Magic School Bus Cartoons, A Scooby Doo Cartoon, The Santa Claus, Barbie Mariposa…and then we ordered pizza for dinner because Mami was too
lazy tired to fix anything…
3:I never wanted to be a household that played with guns. I was wrong, with boys they have become a necessity (again judge away, it’s cool). Nerf guns for Christmas were a great present. We have had several bank robberies at the house. Barbie & littlest pet shop have been held for a ransom of tootsie rolls. Wars have been declared of Colombia vs. Barcelona, TX vs. United States, & my favorite TX & Colombia vs. the world. Darth’s new favorite activity is to reload her brother’s nerf gun. But before she gets to reload the gun she runs back & forth in front of the fireplace with her hands up while Mami shoots at her. Please know that she is laughing hysterically the whole time.
4:My children forgot how to wear non-pajama-clothing. Sunday morning, “Mami what do you mean I can’t wear my Captain America pjs to church? I put my boots on.”
Again have I mentioned that I cannot wait for the kids to go back to school! Whoo hoo to schedules! Here are some delightful memories of our holidays…
Thankful for the small moments: Christmas, New Year’s, the holiday season was more magical than we ever could have imagined! So full of life, so busy, so blessed. Sometimes I still can’t believe that this is our life; here we come 2013 do your very best to beat 2012 it’s been AMAZING!
