12 yr wedded bliss.

This past Sunday, my husband and I celebrated 12 years of marriage. We had so many reasons to celebrate this milestone. The last two years have been an emotional rollercoaster and with the help of Jehovah and each other we made it through to the other side. Happy and healthy I might add. My husband surprised me with a weekend getaway to Dinsey with the kids. We had a blast. Xander is now at the age where he is super excited and Kiera was happy looking at the parades and riding rides. So much fun.

After such a wonderful weekend I was not expecting anything else. Then a wonderful friend watched our two children so My husband and I could have a kid-free anniversary dinner(we haven’t had one of those for the last 4 anniversaries) We got to just laugh and talk about our highs and lows of the year. What goals we have as a couple and individuals for the next year of marriage. It truly was a weekend to remember and one I am so glad we were able to have.

Time for a Change

Today marks the first day of November and it was a needed change from the month that was October. I was ready for a new start.

I forgot that the time change was also happening and I didn’t remember how bad it was last year with a once year old until I saw this meme

I laughed AND cried when I saw this. It all came back like a ton of bricks. OMG our son can’t tell time and he will wake up when his natural clock goes off. Which IF it’s not bad, it would be an hour earlier than normal or it could be 2-4 hours earlier.

My husband and I went to bed not before giving each other the look as if to say: “well done today surviving parenthood”

Of course our son was up, BRIGHT EYES and all; ready to play. He didn’t give us the usual fuss over changing his diaper. He actually handed my husband all the supplies and laid down. Is this the twilight zone. We stare at each other with bags under our eyes and I greet the morning.

Today was a good day, dinner is now cooking and we have survived another day of parenthood. But or course we did it with Starbucks and a cake pop, I mean HOW ELSE can you survive a time change with a toddler? Screen Shot 2015-11-01 at 6.19.43 PM
