All of this in the Name of being ME, a WIFE and PARENT.....

Got up late this morning, skipped morning workout, got the older kids feed, ready and off to school, realized how annoyed I am that the free lunch program at the school applies to everyone but my kids?? (Grrr), paid some bills, got younger boys ready to go, got heated about situation's with my son at his school, facebooked about it, felt better after venting....


Picked up hubby from work, told hubby about school situation, got annoyed again about it, went grocery shopping, went to early lunch with hubby n boys at Cafe Rio, only got to eat half my salad cause Ammon went to town on it....... decided I was full anyways...


Took hubby back to work, took Ammon to school, came home, put groceries away, cleaned the house twice since Masi was right along my side UNCLEANING up the room I had just finished (UGH), prep for dinner.......


Read some books with Masi, put Masi down for a nap, tried to take a nap myself and then realized older kids would be home soon and made the after school snack, sat down on the couch as kids came home, tried to make myself get back up and workout since missed morning workout, guilt did NOT win, but got up anyways to do some laundry....... Upon emptying my boys hamper, was contemplating on the reasons these boys go through SO MANY clothes within 4 days..... Decided that was irritating enough.....


Went and made a weekly laundry chart for all the kids, laughed to myself as I was making it cause couldn't wait to see the look on their faces when I showed it to them, printed out the chart, took it in the kitchen , explained that the 3 older kids were assigned laundry days and if they didn't wash their own clothes on those days they would have to wear dirty clothes, laughed out loud when the expression on their face's set in, laughed some more when Leine told the boys I was kidding, explained that I was not their Maid, I'M THE MOM and they are responsible enough to wash their own clothes, laughed again as the kids realized I WASN'T kidding (LOL).....cleaned up table from snack so homework could begin.......


Masi got up from his nap, helped Jayden with homework, helped Leine with homework,  tired to motivate Ammon to read more..... Helped Ammon with reading, had to read some more books with Masi cause he was getting mad that he didn't have homework for me to help him with?????........


March Madness began, went to call hubby to see how picks were going but had to get Jay's shirt for scouts out, realized I needed to sow on some badges,  got the sowing machine out, got the badges sown on, rushed Jay to scouts, right on time.....


Came home, tried to sit down on couch again and relax, didn't happen, got talked into playing the Kinect with the kids, played for almost an hour, guilt from missing morning workout had disappeared, could already tell I would be sore from Kinect "workout" (LOL), went and got Jay from scouts, took Leine's friend home, took Leine to cheer, came home to make dinner......


Listen patiently to Jay as he tried to talk his way out of the whole new laundry duties, thought about how creative he was as he tried to scheme another way to get me to do his laundry, almost reconsidered when he offered to do the dishes everyday for a month, came back to reality and realized the unfairness in his scheming,  told him he still has to do his own laundry...called the hubby to tell him about funny conversation with Jay, realized he was still doing March Madness, was reminded that Men don't Multi-task well (LMBO) so told hubby to call me later, went and picked up Leine from cheer.....


Came home and ate dinner with the kids, laughed as I realized the craziness of my days, getting tired, just then hubby walked in with FLOWERS (sigh, YES, he is the best), decided to blog about it after dinner, started to blog, after 1st paragraph realized it was already time for our night time routine, had to stop blogging.......


Kids got ready for bed, checked off  and signed all the kids homework, realized Leine had a Confusional migraine coming on (FRICK!!!), gave her meds, dealt with that, sat worrying hoping one day she will grow out of it like the Dr says, tried sending the boys to bed, Ammon reminded me that we needed to read our scripture's, Read a chapter with the kids from there, by then feeling all the wear of the day, still wishing Leine was okay, couldn't help but smile as I listened to Masi say  family prayer, hugs and kisses to all the kids, tucked kids in bed, listen as Masi tried to talk his way out of going to bed, put him back in bed, told him to stay, listened as he yelled and giggled from the room about not wanting to go to sleep, laughed at the fact that less than a minutes later he was knocked out.....


checked on Leine, noticed her crying in her sleep, felt like crying too :( -wish I could take the PAIN away.....


FINALLY got to sit down........ couldn't help but think I use to do all of this, work 2 full time and 2 part time jobs, realized again how great its been since I was able to quit all jobs,  surprised that I haven't gone insane yet from everything ... then thought "maybe I have" (LMBO)....realized I hadn't finished my blog, got back up, now typing this blog, thinking about how I get to do most of this and MORE tomorrow (YAY???), now just WANTING desperately to fall asleep, but can't too worried about Leine..... going to check on her again.........................................................


staying up and watching a movie with the hubby and just so I can go check on her again.......


ALL OF THIS IN THE NAME OF BEING ME, A WIFE AND PARENT.........
