Happy Birthday Scarletta Jayne!!!!

Today is my baby's 1st birthday! WOW! Can she already be a year old! At times she seems much younger to me, but today she was seeming much older! She brings such joy in my life and when I see her walking around the house with a purse on her arm it just makes me laugh. She is my little girly girl!

Today we are going to take the three girls to Chuck E. Cheeses, which we do on every birthday. Ok not my birthday, but the girls birthdays. It should be fun! Her birthday party will be on Saturday and I know she will never remember her party but I hope she has fun! We are doing a ladybug theme and I am so excited about it. I made little invites and sent them out. I hope everyone has fun.

Birthdays are such an exciting thing for me. It's the most important day of a persons life. And I am so glad we have so many birthdays to celebrate in our family!

Everyone seems to be so irritated by the mom who just gave birth to 8 beautiful babies. I started to wonder why do we care so much? Really it's none of our business, but yet we seem to think we are entitled to know all the details. But what I am really surprised at is how hurtful her mother is being. I understand if she doesn't want to help her daughter raise these 14 babies. That's her choice. But to go around and just tear down her daughter with such hurtful words. I just find it unbelievable. I also find it sad that at times we are sucked into the media and go along with the judging and the cruel talk. We have helped them paint this terrible picture of this woman and we don't even know who she is! She hasn't even been given a chance to say anything for herself. Maybe she is just a woman who loves kids and wanted to have a bunch of kids...does that mean there is something wrong with her? Does that mean she's sick? Maybe we just need to understand that it's none of our business and get on with our own lives instead of putting our noses in someone elses life. I wonder if Angelina Jolie were to have 14 kids, we would be talking about her the same way? I highly doubt it.

Sometimes I wonder if anyone ever reads my posts. But then I thought about it and it doesn't really matter. Really I just write them for me...but then on the other hand I really want people to read them. I blame my confusion on pregnancy...a little think I call baby brains.

I don't really know what I wanted to write about today. I don't really have anything on my mind. Just feel the need to write I guess. I just told my husband that I wanted to write a book. One that I think to myself no one would ever want to read. But a couple of years ago I had this really awesome dream...that I remember very vividly. But it's been my book idea. It's actually a great book idea. I know I am building you up to think that I am going to talk about what my dream was about...but I don't really want to give it away...just in case I ever to write the book. But know was one of the most exciting and adventure filled dreams I have ever had. That is probably one of the reasons I actually remember it so well!

I had a very exhausting day...and when I think about it I really haven't done ANYTHING! Went to church, sang and played my guitar, played with the girls, ate lunch, took a nap, then had the break down part of the day with the girls. I LOVE my girls. But on days when after 4 is just crying and whining time...I go a bit crazy! They always seem to have it all figured's like they plan it in their room before they get up in the morning. I see Jadelyn the oldest as the ring leader. "Ok guys. We all have to be in this together. 4 hits and we all just have a melt down. Maybe if we do this mommy and daddy with just do whatever we want them to." And to pretend that statement actually happened this morning...She would almost be right. I do want to cave in and sometimes I do. The girls go crazy and I let them watch a movie. They start crying and whining I give them a snack. But sometimes I see what I am doing and stop myself. I can't let them get away with this stuff! They are going to grow up spoiled brats if I let them have their way all the time. Today was ok...yesterday they had actually earned the movie they watched today. And I didn't break down and give them candy on demand. But I have to admit...I have my weak days. The days I am not proud of myself. But forget that...I am proud of myself today. I have to remember that I am a good mother...otherwise I kick myself all day long and all night long wondering what I am doing wrong. I am doing my best...loving my girls! Thank you to whoever read my post today! I appreciate it!

My kids...

So I just put my kids to bed and just really felt the need to blog about them. As I hear the two older ones messing around in their room & the younger one whimpering herself to sleep...they just make me smile.

I came home from school today to find my mother-in-law and my oldest Jadelyn sitting and reading the Encyclopedia! What is a four year old doing reading that? I sat and watched as she was showing Grammy where all the body parts where on the skeletal man. Now as in body parts I don't mean the hand the foot the head. She was showing her where the liver was, the heart, the lungs, small intestine and large. And she was telling her what each of them did. She has amazed me ever since she was little, but this was a little surprising. Grammy told me that they looked through the whole book pretty much and Jadelyn just asked questions. I remember these times when I am annoyed with her questions...what a great time to teach my kids all they want to know. Jadelyn never gives up...if you don't know the answer she just asks the question in a different way!

Liliana showed me on the picture where the pee pee is held. Sorry if that offends anyone! Her biggest accomplishment lately has been potty training. We put some big girl pants on her and off she went. No more pull ups or anyting...not ever at night! So wonderful! She is such a funny girl. She has these faces that she gives and they just make me laugh everytime...even when I shouldn't when she's in trouble! She has such a tender heart. The second you start to get after her she just breaks down. She hates to have people mad at her...I think she might be a people pleaser. Something I have had a hard time with in my life...hopefully I can teach her at a young age that you can't make everyone happy and every once in awhile someone is going to be upset with you...and that's OK! Liliana is my little singer and performer...and when she is done singing and we clap for her she bows and says thank you thank you. It makes me smile and laugh. YOu actually need to see her do it to really understand how funny it is!! I think I am going to have my hands full with her! She is a tease. She loves to sneak up and take things from people and run away laughing...she's not even 1 yet! Her favorite thing to do is what you tell her not to do...and she shakes her head as she does it. She is her daddy's girl. She LOVES being with him and doing everything with him and just sitting on his lap and hanging out. Oh my you should see her when he puts her down...she screams like her life is about to end. And now as she is sitting in her crib screaming at me...I actually better go get her and see what she needs!

I know that everything I just wrote might go under "bragging about your kids" which some people really don't like. But happy and excited with the things your kids do! Don't try to hide it or feel you need to not talk about it. If you are a mom or a dad reading this...or an aunt or uncle....grandma or grandpa...tell me something that your little kids do that is so sweet and special! I would love to hear about it! Be proud!
