Here's a little story of my most embarrassing mommy moment... which happened a few minutes ago.
I had to go to Emma's school to drop her off and I brought Sophia with me since Matt is at work, though this isn't an uncommon occurrence.
So Emma is in line (because she always has to be the first one) and I'm letting Sophia walk around holding onto my hand, some teachers start stampeding through the call and I wanted to move Sophia so I pick her up and she decides to pick up my shirt with her!... soo that was great, everyone just got a free show, and I wasn't even wearing my good bra.. damn it.
After refusing to make eye contact with anyone, praying that by some grace of God there was a tiny explosion, or someones kid spontaneously combusted and everyone looked away from me and my ridiculously cute child in that moment, I put Sophia down and we are walking again. I was also swinging her and she was having a grand time, but I was hoping for time to speed up so I could run out of there, But as luck would have it right as the teachers come out to get the kids I pick up Soph so we can high tail it the eff out of there wave bye to Emma and Sophia pukes EVERYWHERE!!!
And of course this is one of the few times I didn't bring any baby gear so i have nothing to clean it up with... So I'm standing there like a pukey moron, red faced and horrified.
To say the least, I never want to go back.... I wonder if Emma knows the way to walk home.
I have been reading lots of things these past few weeks, maybe months. (i sorta lose track of time), Mainly its been about food and health. There is so many things about food that I have learned, I have a plethora of new recipes I want to try as well.
I've learned a lot about trans fat .....and that the process of makeing prepackaged deli meat included ammonia. YUM!
I find myself reading labels a lot more to see whats in food I am buying instead of just throwing it in my cart because its just something we've always gotten, I take time to find the better item.
There are lots of little things we have an will be changing in this household to make our lives healthier.
It will be baby steps, seeing as how Emma is against anything that isn't chocolate cereal, peanut butter, chicken nuggets or pop-tarts. But we will get there. ( I hope)
I'm not sure how much of this I will blog about, but hopefully I will get motivated to start writing in here again.
Also, as of yesterday I started working out again, A bit of cardio, strength trainning (okay that part was very little) and a bit of Yoga.... I'm a lot stretchy-er then I thought I was, considering that my ass has grown about 2 sizes over the last year and okay I won't blame it on my thyroid completely, those cheesy bread sticks might have had a part in all of this. Damn you delicious bread sticks.
I also realized just how incredibly hard it is to work out with my monsters children around. I had Emma screaming for me in her room every 5 seconds for some ridiculous demand or to tell me some crazy story that would take a normal person 5 seconds to spit out but it takes Emma 3 minutes. and right when I was in the middle of my cardio, Sophia woke up and wouldn't stop yelling. So I took her out of her swing and after that she was trying to run me over. I got 30 minutes in and I'm hoping for more today. But we shall see.
I just know there needs to be a change, in myself and in this house. We all need to be more active and more health conscious.
I have not had much to write about these past weeks. A lot of stress and crazyness and no one wants to hear that!
However, we have had a bit of fun in the mean time, we went bowling for Emma's first time with my friend Jaime and her daughter Jordan. It was lots of fun and I look forward to doing it again, even though Jaime beat everyone!! and Emma's score wasn't far behind mine haha.
I've been inspired to be healthier. So we were (and i say were because since the girls have been sick thats all fallen off track) trying to make healthier meals, more fruits and veggis, Homemade stuff father then pre packaged. Useing better ingredients. I've been doing lots of reading and found a few blogs that I am now stalking. One really fun one is www.thislunchrox.com If you have kids it is a must check out.
We were also inspired by my cousin Karen to start family walks. The girls love it. Emma took her magnifying glass along to investigate bugs.
Agian tho, the sickness has put those plans to bed for awhile.
We went to the annual Marron family Easter party (hosted by my grandpa and grandma Elaine). The girls had fun even though Soph was a big under the weather.
We will be moving back to Grafton next month and everyone is very excited! This apartment has sucked so bad and our new place is very promising. PLUS we will be closer to Emmas best friend!! YAY! Lots of out door fun this summer I can see already!
