Unexpected Visits

Finally a moment to write…… Phew!  Dinner is in the crockpot.  I decided to try Honey Chicken tonight šŸ‘ I’m hoping it’s as good as it smells and looks. 

I would like to share with you a moment that happened to me yesterday (trust me I don’t get a lot of exciting moments).    I’m the oldest of 6 girls.  Yep, there’s 6 of us bitches running around.   3 biological sisters and 2 stepsisters.  I’m 37 years old and the next sister down is 30, 29, 28, 22, & 14.     3 of us have children.  My sister Mackenzie hired me as her childcare provider.  A product of God. 

Mckaylee (my niece) is almost 3.  Every morning our day starts at 5:45 am.  We get our quiet snuggles in on the couch before my two awake.   McKaylee tests everyday ounce of my parenting skills.   But my god I love her to the moon and back, and I love watching her grow.    I choose not to have a car so the kids and I spend a lot of time around the house and outdoors.  We keep busy all day with activities, tatailing, going potty (lord knows we do that about 100 times a day), fighting over one specific toy, playing quietly with each other,  insisting on another snack, catching fliesand much required love.   Needless to say I don’t get much alone time, except after 7pm once Emily & Noah have gone upstairs to bed.   I definitely do not go out and spend money on myself.  

But my wonderful sister Mackenzie

(Mckaylees Mom) started her day off yesterday by thinking of me.     She showed up to my house for a unexpected visit with a huge gift bag and a card, just to say thank you.  Thank you for the early wake ups and thanking me for just being her sister.   She made my heart skip.   Everything she put in this bag was to pamper myself.  Things she knew I wouldn’t normal spend money on.   

The feeling that someone especially a sister is thinking of me and wants to show me how much I’m appreciated is truly a blessing.   I try my hardest everyday to maintain a positive state of mind for our girls.  Somedays I wanna go right back to bed.   Somedays I don’t wanna get up every potty break.  However I’m lucky.   Very lucky for the opportunity to spend with my children and others.   Thank you Mackenzie for making your older sister feel important in your life.   I love you very much as a friend and a sibling.   Never with any judgement you’ve always been there for me.   We all need those reminder sometimes.    Now to my readers, pay it forward.   God bless.

We believe in our home that God,Family, love & positive energy are the foundation to a healthy happy home. I started blogging to assist me in making a decision on homeschooling my children. I have yet to try it. But it's something I feel passionately about doing. Just a little goal of mine šŸ˜‰. I had a career in the automobile industry as a Finance & Inusrance manager for 15 yrs. Having Emily and Noah changed my direction in life. Finally I ended my struggle I had inside of giving up my career and become a stay at home mom. Best decision I ever made šŸ˜. I run a in home childcare operation for work now. Everyday something new happens and seeing children smile makes feel perfect about my decision. I get to watch my children grow also.
