Too funny

Ok, so I will be the first to admit, having kids is hard. Every part of me that thought one was hard, now counts my blessings during each scarce moment of silence. Two kids is nuts! It definitely gives you a new found respect for your own parents! I just wish people talked more about the scary parts, the sad parts, the parts that break your heart, and the ones make you feel like your losing your mind. They don't though, kids are a miracle and there's no debating that, but sometimes, just sometimes, they are so trying it can be a struggle to get through the day.

I'm thinking about writing a book, just tossing sone ideas around, about what really to expect during pregnancy and the toddler years. I've always been a pretty blunt and honest person, I think I can be funny at times (at least my sister thinks so) but mostly I want moms to know they are not alone. It's ok to laugh, to cry, to feel like walls are caving in, and then the in the next instant to feel so blessed your scared your "due" for something bad to happen. I don't know, any thoughts? Anything you wish someone would have mentioned so you could've been more prepared?

On a positive note, sometimes they melt your heart while others they can make you laugh so hard you can barely see straight. Check out this video of Wyatt, how funny! He cracks us up constantly, what an infectious laugh.

Bella is growing like a weed, she's three months already! Check out her latest pictures!

what a beautiful blog to read Heather. I know it's been trying lately, but you're such a wonderful mother and wife. God wouldn't have given you the responsibility if He didn't think you were more than capable. The video of Wyatt is priceless, I had a smile on my face the whole time. He is such a beautiful son. And Bella looks so great and happy! You captured her beautifully. There is so much more soul to your photo than any other has captured. Great job!

I love that video! Did you keep a copy of it? I'd love to have it! We need to put it on a DVD so he can see it some day too!

Gosh Heather - I really am sorry - but, I had to chuckle when I read your latest blog. You see, everyone DOES tell you about the good, the bad and the ugly. The actual problem is that we just don't listen! We don't want to hear the bad stuff, we don't want to have someone tell us we shouldn't be doing what we really want to do.
The same thing happens all through life. As a kid, a teenager, as you get married, have children, etc. There is always someone out there that has been there and already knows that. But, and this is the killer - - we think we know best - for ourselves, for our lives, for our spouses and for our kids.
Believe me - I am approaching that huge number 5-0. And I still think I know what's best for me - and just when I think I have it all together . . . WHAM . . . God steps in and says 'not so fast there young lady', and my hindsight steps in to say "told you so"!
So, my advice, take life one day at a time (sometimes it's one moment at a time). Don't sweat the small stuff. And NEVER loose your sense of humor!!
YOU will be fine - - I promise!!
