Wow, I have really been neglecting my blog. I was just re-reading some of my old blog posts and thinking to myself how happy I am to have some of our best memories documented. Blogging is definitely a favorite hobby of mine, so I need to get back into it!
I thought I’d jump in with a ‘life lately’ post to update everyone on what’s new in our lives. Well, the majority of what’s been going on is SICKNESS. Good lord, I’m so over this flu season! My husband who never usually gets sick has had the flu on and off since NEW YEARS!! He’s also been having a lot of back trouble. We think it’s Sciatica but he can barely stand up straight and has to sleep on the hard floor somtimes! Poor guy… he’s walking around looking like the Hunchback of Notre Dame. 🙂
All my kids have been sick for about two weeks now, besides McKenzie. BUT GUESS WHAT!? As I was typing this blog post, I got a call from school saying she wasn’t feeling well and had to be picked up. I can see another week of this in my future. I just think about how lucky I am that I’m currently a stay at home mom. When I only had McKenzie and Kasey, I would miss a lot of work because of sickness. Now that I have four kids I would have to take the entire month off!
Besides being sick, the babies have been little terrors! I’m not sure if its just this age but holy cow. They are kicking my ass every day. Refusing naps, wanting to be held constantly, CRYING, fighting with each other… I could go on. I honestly think they are going stir crazy because we never leave the house (because of the FLU!). The weather has been somewhat nice lately, so we’ve been able to go outside and play most days. They absolutely love their “wing” (swing) and “swide” (slide) in our backyard.
We have also been dealing with some bullying at school. Ugh – this has always been a fear of mine. Especially having girls… I know how catty and mean girls can be in school. Well, we had a couple incidents in school and they just made me want to cry. I hate seeing my babies hurting. We are trying to teach the girls to stand up for themselves and each other! The perks of having a twin sister is that they are there to back you up! I’m sure the crap they will have to deal with in school will only get worse but it just breaks my heart!
In some fun news, Cody and I booked our next vacation!! We will be going with my parents to Universal in October! I’m super excited because as you know… it’s my favorite place EVER! We’re going to Halloween Horror Nights while we’re there because my dad has never been. He is a huge horror movie lover. He even has almost every classic killer tattooed on his arm! This will be right up his alley. Although it’s seven months away, I’m already counting down!
I have been posting vlogs over on my YouTube channel if you would like to see more of our hectic life! Follow us there as well 🙂
