RS Book Club Review

Last night I finished reading...
The Prize Winner of Definance, Ohio: How My Mother Raised 10 Kids On 25 Words Or Less


So in the spirit of limericks in 25 words or less here is my ode to Evelyn Ryan:

The book about Evelyn Ryan
A clever woman always tryin'
Has inspired my urge to be good
and do the things I know I should.

Revenge of the Sith and the Screaming Banshee

Zac and Sophia have a funny relationship. Zac love's to tease, Sophia doesn't love to be teased, but loves attention particularly from Zac. The other night Zac donned his black pants, his black shirt, and a black blanket cape like over his head, ei 'the sith' and mysteriously lurked around corners. Of Course this quiet activity caused Sophia to scream like a banshee because she hates disguises (Halloween was traumatic). I was nursing Milo and unaware of what Zac was doing so I kept telling Sophia to stop screaming, this went on for about 15 minutes until finally Nate noticed and told Zac to take off the blanket. Zac didn't comply and suddenly it didn't scare Sophia anymore and she laughed and screamed while Zac still in costume chased her around the house. A new noisy game created-Revenge of the Sith and the Screaming Banshee.

After 4 what's 1 more?

So I've heard people say- after 4 what's 1 more? Well I don't know if I'll have 1 more, 4 is hard enough! Maybe I am just in a postpartum depression, but playing Milo's milkmaid, Sophia's tantrum sounding board, 2 school age children in check, a house in order, and a husband happy is starting to get me frazzled!

It just would be cool if I could sleep, so if you see me or talk to me and I am rude or say things that don't make sense, now you know why and I am sorry in advance
Kudos to all y'all who have survived babies with older kids in tow.

New Years Resolutions

I wanted to post resolutions on New Year's day, but something about a tantrum throwing 2 year old and a hungry hungry infant needing my attention stopped me.

January 5th Resolutions

1. Learn Spanish already Emily!
2. Cut down on the yelling
3. Have family home evening(this could be broken tonight, but I have to make this goal every year)
4. Eat healthy and exercise regularly not to lose weight (I do need to ), but mainly because heart disease runs in my family and I eat a lot of cholesterol filled food.
5. Go back to school (this one is kind of far fetched, but oh well)
