Just the ramblings of a crazy Mom of two beautiful girls (and YaYa to many children that I adore) navigating through my snafu'd life. This blog is my way of 'clearing the cobwebs' and trying to maintain my sanity.
I have a chaotic life full of kids, rebuilding after our house burnt, coffee, my best girls, mornings in my breezeway, blogging, a full time job, screaming kids, laundry, remodeling, Asperger's/OCD Big'K, mowing, taking the trash out, Bipolar w/psychosis and RAD Lil'K, a crazy family, more kids thrown in the mix, bad plumbing, laughing until I pee my pants, electrical malfunctions, and everything else the Big G thinks He needs to throw at me on this ride we call life, all the while trying to survive being a single mother. Because let's face it...every day that I wake up, I am outnumbered!
never thought clifford the big red dog would sound so good! but alas...after everyone ate sammie's with chips they all laid down in the living room and got quiet. the only noise was clifford the big red dog and emily elizabeth. oh how sweet the sound of a big red stupid dog. seven kids...all quiet. for more than half an hour. are you kidding me?!?! really. from age 15 down to four. they were all quiet. and the moms got the chance to eat, without getting heartburn, take a minute to have some puter time, and no yelling, no screaming, no stop-it-dont-touch-her-keep-your-hands-to-yourself. nothing. silence. amazing. its these rare minutes...these few and far between moments...THESE are the times that i love motherhood. these are the times i see that our children arent little green monsters disguised as fleshy humans. these are the times that i know we arent, completely and totally, screwing up our kids. if they can really sit and not fight and be quiet and good and focus on something for even half an hour even with the AS, and the ADHD, and the dyslexia, even the arthritis that doesnt want your body to sit still, even with everything...peace. even now the three oldest are in the living room watching CSI. the four younger ones...i believe are in the other room with the other mother. me...sitting here drooling over warrick on csi and his beautiful eyes. my BFF who i may refer to as Onion Mom from now on is outside smoking and getting ready to take a shower. i right now am going to give up my obsession with warrick and join her.
this morning we had a great morning too. all my bestest of friends that are within a 10 mile range were here with kids and coffee. chatting and talking bout old times. i love my friends. we are all imperfect. we all have a past. but i love them. all of them. how lucky am i?? i am the luckiest woman on the earth ... today.
today was a good day. a very good day. it made my heart smile...
Just a mom of two kids. Big K and Lil K. Who make me loco on a daily basis. I have a ton of other kids that call me 'YaYa'. They are my 'stray cats' as my great aunt refers to them. Once you start feeding them they won't go away...and apparently i'm a great cook!
The things I say will not always make sense. I am funny. I am sarcastic. I am educated. (Sometimes I forget this and the ghettoredneckcoonass comes out. I cannot help it. Hushitup!) I am a smartass. I do not sleep a lot. I may be off color at times. I am also harmless. You may not get my style and that is not my fault. This blog is not meant to be anything other than my thoughts. What I say belongs to me and at the end of the day...it's just words. Get over yourself. If you are offended, go away. You have been warned...
