Mommy Memoirs...

Ahhh the life of a mom, you never know where it will lead you. One moment it's smiles and coos, the next it's tears and fits of rage. Today I had all of these jewels and then some.

We started the day with a morning walk before the heat settled in the foothills...it was a lovely summer morning. We then met some friends to go swimming, Walker's first taste (not literally) of chlorine water. After figuring out that 3 kids and their car seats were not going to fit into one car we hoped into our separate cars and caravanned to the rec center. We fumbled into the rec center with 3 kids, car seat, and bags only to discover that the baby pool was closed for the afternoon! So we were off like turtles to caravan to the YMCA pool...after paying a ridiculous amount of money for me and yes my 4 and 1/2 month old baby were were finally poolside! Thankfully after about an hour of trying to get to the pool my little man enjoyed himself and looked pretty stinkin' cute in his swim trunks!

The rest of the day progressed as usual...then 5:00 rolled around and I had one of my firsts. I was folding W's clothes and I heard the explosion, actually I thought it was a noise he made with his mouth, but no it was his bum. About a minute or two later I picked him up and noticed the pool of poop in the lime green bumbo chair. I then noticed the same poop all over my shirt, arm, his leg, his onesie, and of course leaking out of his diaper! So I did my motherly duties and cleaned up the doody. After he was all clean I laid him on his play mat, where he immediately rolled over. As I was cleaning up in the kitchen I heard the dreaded noise again. I walk over and roll him on to his back to see if he had messed his pants again, but instead I see this:

Yes, that is puke for all of you rookies out there :)


Let's just say it was probably a good thing that tonight was bath night!!!


summer lovin'

Summer has officially arrived and I have officially been smiling while wearing my flip flops! Of course I might be singing a different tune tomorrow since the high is supposed to be 98, oh and did I mention that our swamp cooler isn't "cooling"?! It was a beautiful weekend filled with blue skies and fluffy white dream clouds.

Took sometime to take in the sun, of course in the shade with the little one, on Saturday!

I tried to tap into my inner child and find animals in the clouds :)

I recently acquired a macro lens...boy do I love it!

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer as much as we are!
