I have made it a year. The first year is celebrated with paper, right? Doesn’t seem appropriate… instead how about my first
I am not sure what I expected, if anything. After all, I rarely follow through with anything. Addison can certainly attest to that… I think I was mostly hoping for something bigger to do with my spare time along with somewhere to deflect my rants away from the children and a very exhausted hubby or, better yet, hoping to give you all a glimpse into my chaotic life as a stay-at-home mom. With a load of encouragement from friends, children patiently waiting to be fed or bathed and support from the hubby, I was able to commit to this little blog.
In the past year we have celebrated birth stories, birthday celebrations, baby’s firsts, anniversaries, hilarious toddler conversations and moments; you have read about my struggles with motherhood, bad mommy confessions, my biggest fears, terrifying moments and the life changing ones, along with a shit load of rants. All from the comfort of home.
You have made me realize, there really is nothing bigger than what I am already doing; loving my husband, loving my children, finding a creative outlet to keep me sane so I can do it all over again tomorrow. This has been an amazing year and I thank you all so much for taking the journey with me and helping me to find that there is a place in this enormous bloggyverse for even me. I have truly cherished this experience.
It’s no surprise kids’ say the funniest things, and what comes out of the mouth’s of toddlers is often hysterical and sometimes downright pee your pants funny! When what they say isn’t humorous, their words can melt your heart. To help make sure I never forget these little toddler quips and because they make me smile, I have decided to share them in a weekly post called “Toddler Talk Thursday.”
Addison: "Mommy will you go get Mr. Pickle Pants?"
Mommy: "You mean Mr. Prickle Pants."
Addison: "No his name is Mr. Pickle Pants!"
Mommy: "No pumpkin, it is Prickle Pants."
Addison: "Call him Mr. Pickle Pants! That's his name!"
Mommy: "Why do you think his name is Mr. Pickle Pants?"
Addison: "Because he has a Pickle in his pants."
And there it is...
But really his name is Mr. Prickle Pants
