I have kids....

No seriously. I have kids. I typed that sentence today.  Actually I typed, "The kids fight over me constantly and it's horrible." I typed those words to my sister.

And they do!  Believe it or not from 4 pm to 6 pm everyday my kids FIGHT over me! They cry and scream and flail their arms to sit on my lap or hug me or be on me and I don't know what to do.

I don't know what to do.

I feel my heart strings being pulled when I can't give them their individual attention that I know they want and deserve.  However, they also need to learn how to SHARE! (Another reason Neal and I think they need to go to preschool next year.)

But when did I get kids? Last I checked I had a baby and a baby. Not KIDS!?!?!  When did this happen?! Time is just going by too fast and I wish it could slow down for a hot minute.

I adore them so much.  We had a a wonderful 13 days of Spring Break and I enjoyed every minute except for about 45 of them when they were crying in public.

Emerson is growing up so much!  I switched out her winter wardrobe for spring/summer stuff and she is wearing 3T clothes now!!!!!!! 3T! As in a 3 year old toddler.  She is 18 months old. I can't handle the growing.  She is a little parrot and repeats every single sound, word, sentence, syllable and paragraph that we say.  Examples: I am so happy!  I did it! Don't touch it!  The doggie bite you! No No no eat. No no no sleep.  I don't like it. I don't share. My toys. My turn.  You get the picture ;)
She is also turning into a sasssssy pants.  She pushed and pinched another girl at the zoo on Monday and I was mortified!!!! She has never been pinched in her life! Where did she learn this from?  Home girl needs a reality check.  She's been living it pretty easy for the last year and a half!  She does love to hug Beckett (one of her favorite words) but she also loves to haul off and slap him in the head.

Sibling <3

My big boy is just that - so big!  In 5T clothes for the spring and I just put 2 bags together to give away of his 4T stuff (tear, tear). He is SO into mommy right now (which I love.)  I want to be with him all the time and he reciprocates that feeling!  He loves to tell me stories and we draw together and sing together, walk together, talk together. It's so fun seeing their personalities unfold. He is finally getting "jokes".  I love it. We passed a guy riding a lawnmower last week in the car and he busted out laughing for a good 5 minutes because it was the "funniest thing he's ever seen." Gotta love 3 year olds. :)  I am having a really hard time at the thought of sending him to preschool next year because *selfishly* I want him with me all the time!  He has his speech evaluation on Monday...Pray for my strength!

I am very thankful that both kids are sleeping now so I can start my lesson plans and even more thankful that Neal brought home a 6 pack so I could relax and unwind and try to wrap my brain around the fact that I have 2 kids.....

Cute kids ;)
Night all!
