Real mom moments

So I use my facebook account and instagram and even here to show the world that I love my life and it's a highlight reel to be honest. I was thinking about it and I hope no one ever compares them self to me. When I find myself comparing anything I am doing to anyone else it just stops me from enjoying life.

That said I wanted to share a few mom fails this week. I used to want to get everything done perfectly and on time and beautifully.  That all went out the door when my 3rd baby came and now I am learning to prioritize life. What is most important right now, what while affect my future and my families future those types of things it's goog to be a forever lesson but I am happy with the progress I make.

So this week on Wednesday I read in Jamison's folder that he had snack day for the whole class thursday, so I made a mental note to go to the store and get 24 snacks and 24 caprisuns. Thursday morning came and as jamison ran to the bus I remembered it was snack day. Palm to my face moment. Had a small panic attack then called daniel and when he got back to me he was able to go to the store pick up snacks and drop them to school.  Heroic husband moment.

Today is picture day at school. I knew this all week made a mental note. It's 11 am Anf I just relapsed it was picture day (from another mom's facebook post 😂😂😉😉😉)

My mental notes are going away soon! I must write it on my planner and then look at my planner. Anyway I have mom fails everyday all day and guess what?  I am learning not to panic I am learning that I must do my best and be happy with it. I can't play the what if past tense game. I can only do my best and move forward. I feel I will be a better mother and human for it! If I am steaming mad at myself for forgetting things and failing at things I am an angry stresses out person who nobody gets to enjoy.

I want to enjoy life and the people I choose to surround myself with.

This has been random and unusual but that's ok, wanted to get a bit of my real self out there and let myself and others know that it's ok to have "mom fails" and it's ok to not feel guilty about the things we think we are not doing right. It's ok to enjoy life.

Something big that happened in the last year? We had baby Soley.  She is a sweetie and we love her sooo much. She was born September 29th 2014. She was a few days late but we were so happy to meet her. I take her around the house everywhere with me. I lay a blanket on the kitchen island and lay her on it when I am washing dishes or cooking dinner. I seriously can't get enough of her :) She talked so much today that Jamison asked her to stop talking. She is very loud :)

Today was a day

 Eva face planted onto the tile and it looks bad. Her nose is swollen so I am going to take her in somewhere tomorrow with all the kids and hope we survive. Oh its Valentines day tomorrow. Here is what Alexander made at school.
I asked him if he came up with it himself or if someone else told him to write it and he said he came up with it himself. Its kind of a funny pick up line but sweet too. I also forgot to mention it was Alexander's birthday yesterday. Our Wii broke so I told Alexander he could have a new wii or a birthday party and he chose the new wii. Then we found out the power cable was broken on the old wii and works fine so we have two wii's now. The kids have a five day weekend and I am uber sick so we are going to be playing a lot of wii this long weekend.

We have both parent teacher conferences today and they are both doing well. We really like their teachers. Alexander has progressed so much just this last year and we are so glad.

Jamison is a little nutty. He is lovable but extremely quick at everything he does. He can find new and exiting experiences everywhere he goes and usually within 10 seconds.  I hope he calms down a little in the future. Anyway it was a get through it and breath again tomorrow kind of day. So we will be breathing again tomorrow. I need to make some time for some projects as I have found this week there is no extra time for projects. When there is no time you just have to squeeze some out of somewhere. Until next time.

Its 2013

Thats right its 2013. I have decided I will start being a diligent person again and restart the blogging. I got a new laptop for my birthday last year and I told myself I would start blogging well 5 months later and yes I believe I will start now. Life is GOOD. It really is. We are extremely blessed and happy. So now I need to start blogging and sharing again so that people outside of New Mexico know we are alive and kicking over here. That means I have to start taking photos again. Oh to be on the ball again... I have a desire to start painting rooms again and redoing some furniture. I guess Miriam is back and ready to well do stuff :)
Right now isn't the best time though, I need to finish tidying the house for seminary in the morning and then get some decorations packed up for the Ward Valentines Dance tomorrow night. There is never a dull moment in the Reeves' household. Lets cross our fingers that I will return within the week rather than just within the year.
