Bedtime usually is not a war here at home. Tonight…it will be!

Mistakes Made Today

Mistake #1 Letting my 3 yr old sleep in till 10:30 Am on a weekday. Yup! you saw right…till 10:30 Am. Its fine on the weekends because us old folks get to sleep in, but big mistake during the weekday.

Mistake #2 Taking a super late nap. They got in their beds at exactly 4:23 Pm for their nap! The kiddos usually take a late nap around 2ish, maybe 3 and are asleep till about after my husband comes home from work. I do my husband the favor of having a quiet house when he comes home so he can just sit back and relax without the kids hanging all over him like a jungle gym. I am such a GREAT WIFE!

Mistake #3 Not waking them up from their super late nap. When they take their late naps I wake them up so that bedtime comes easy. Not today. The house was so quiet and I was all snuggled on the couch with my blanket. I wanted to hang on to that moment and listen to….absolutely nothing!

 

The Final Result

After 3 hours of playing, coloring, watching Home Alone and having their bedtime snack….the kids finally went to bed at 11:17 Pm on a school night. This is only acceptable on Friday and Saturday nights…hahaha! Finally gonna go to bed and see what tomorrow night brings. They sure tired me out today!

New Year’s Resolutions 2012 January 1, 2012


Good Evening Momzies :)

So the new year is here are we are  all super stoked. For all you non-religious readers, you can go ahead and skip down to the double happy face or you can keep on reading ;)  and for the rest of you, you can continue reading.

So today at Mass, the priest said that God is in charge this year. This is true. God knows exactly what we are supposed to do in life. He has a plan for every single one of us. From before putting us in our mothers bellies, He knew exactly what our plans were going to be. That red light you caught on the way to work was in his plan, the flat tire on your way home from a hard day at work…that was in the plan too. When you steer away from Gods plan, poop happens. You speed down the street so you don’t catch that red light and….BAM! Now you’re sitting inside the ambulance with a broken face. God knows when you were gonna steer away and that is why other people’s mistakes are your lessons. Not sure how to quote the Bible but I am going to give it a try. In Jeremiah 1: 5, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nation.”  My New Years Resolution will be guided by our Lord himself. My list of resolutions is just a list in itself. Out of those 10, God plan may only allow me to complete one and save the other 9 for next year. I am not going to stop trying. If I have to wait another year to finish school, then I will because it is in His plan for me. With that said, I am not going to force my resolutions to happen, I am just going to go with the flow.

Now, I am going to go on ahead with my resolutions, but if I cannot complete them, it is okay. I wont freak out! Okay maybe just a little but, I’ll be okay after that.

My New Year’s Resolution Tips

1) The key to completing all your new year resolutions –>DISCIPLINE! Without self-control you will get nowhere. Set limits and boundaries and stay within them.

2) Do Not Repeat Your Mistakes! Look back at 2011 and pinpoint when and why you quit and do not do it again.

3) Never say “There is always next year.” You are NOT guaranteed next year!

4) Never give up. You will also get nowhere.

LASTLY,

5) Ask yourself who you are going to be at the end of the year and start today!

All you moms and dads out there, just take it easy. Set up realistic and fun resolutions and do not give up on them. I know kids make them harder to complete but let them be part of your resolutions. If you are into fitness, buy a jogging stroller and take them with you. If you want to bring out your artistic side, buy the kids an easel and some washable paint. Not only will you have fun but so will the kids. Keep family first and make life simple!    -Toodles :)

 

Let me know how I did for my first blog. I could definitely use the advice to improve. Thanks for reading :)
