Here it is folks, some real confessions. Having 2 kids 2 and under, working full time, doing my own housework, running all errands, and trying to STILL have a social life can sometimes get the best of us. This is where confessions come in. These are my own secrets...that I will share with you b/c I am honest. This blog isn't to make me sound like I have it all figured out, like I am Martha Stewart  or like I have a highlighted schedule on my refridgerator. I am organized, I have OCD, but some times you just throw in the towel and you do whatever WORKS!!! We all need sleep and we all need happiness so sometimes its best to pick your battles.

1. I would like to say that my kids are always clean and presented well. Most the time they are....then there are those nights when its 8:30 and NOBODY has eaten or had a bath. So instead of making Tucker throw a fit, I grab some baby wipes and clean him up and put a clean shirt on him and send him to bed. Yes, I am sure baby wipes dont do the job...but his face is clean at least for the next day

2. Speaking of baby wipes.....if someone is coming over in the next 15 minutes and my floors are sticky and not to mention the things in my bathroom...I grab the wipes. I can spot clean a floor and deep clean a bathroom in 5 minutes flat. YEP, it might smell like pampers but at least my toilets are cleaner than they were.

3. Lets NOT even get me started on dinner most nights. I cook 4 or so nights out of the week. (and some of these cooking nights are frozen...ok a lot of them) Sometimes after getting home at 530 and running errands or playing outside there is no time for cooking. Tucker usually picks cold hot dogs and fruit snacks. Thats what he eats a couple nights a week.

4. A lot of nights I drink my dinner...keep the cold hot dogs..I will have something cold for dinner but not a hot dog.

5. laundry is an endless battle..most times I am digging things out of baskets

6. My carpet does NOT get swept enough. I am not even kidding ya'll...there could be stuff living in there and I wouldn't know.  Tucker hates the vacuum so I pick my battles and DON"T use it.

7. Did I mention I drink my dinner a lot....oh I did. Ok

8. Crib sheets are really really hard to change and I can't do it alone.....enough said

9. Saylor Kate is a spitting baby...as was Tucker. Therefor, whatever is in arms reach when she spits is what I use to clean her up.....jacket sleeve...stuffed animal...u get the picture

10. My poor poor car...u would think we live there, I feel like we do. There are dirty diapers at times LOST in my car. I find them usually in a couple days after we have to ride with the windows down to school.

11. McDonald's is our best friends. Tucker says "chicken, fries and tea please" when we pull up.

12. Sometimes I want to go to work on Monday....

13. I let the dog in our house to lick the floor clean after a red sauce night....its the only vacuum that Tucker likes

14. If you put mine and Nathan's legs together...you wouldn't be able to tell who's is who's. I have like 10 seconds to shower and ...well...you know 

15. I sometimes get a dish out of the cabinet and realize it hadn't been washed?? I am tired a lot

I will stop there...some of you have probably thrown up in your mouth. Well...its real life here in the hay. I have sooo much more on my list, but as we speak the dog is in the house and chewing on a toy that later one of the kids will chew on

Things around my house

* Two kids is harder than ONE....some people think not I think so! Ecspeically at the ages mine are. It isn't a lot harder at home, actually we are just fine at home and at other peoples houses...but I am soooo used to just picking up and going and I can't do that anymore. I am used to going to church at different times than my husband, NOT with both kids. Target, the grocery store, etc I can't pick up and go like I used to. It will get easier...but its for sure different.

* Saylor is loving her preschool. The teachers are sooo good to her. She is sleeping...wait for this...11-12 hours straight a NIGHT!!! OMG, I probably just jinxed it but for the past week she has slept 11-12 hours a night straight.

* Both my kids have thrown up or spit up some of their milk. Saylor is doing the same so I am weighing her bottles down with lots of good ol' rice. She loves it, it satisfies her and this is probably why she sleeps soooo long at night

* Sometimes you change 8-12 dirty diapers a day. I feel like its my job and I should be making money for this

* I barely make dinner for my family. I hate to say it but lately its eat what you can find or something frozen. After work I want to play with my kids outside and then before I know it its time for bath and bed. Last night, Tucker wanted a cold hotdog...thats what he got. :(

* Sometimes when you are married to a GREAT man like mine (but that works to hard and too long) ( I know some of your girls reading this will understand b/c I swear our men all drink the same water and are the same person) you are a single mother a lot!!!!  I can't stress  A LOT enough, and summer only gets worse with being alone. I look forward to summer, but then again I see my husband more in winter months. Dont' get me wrong, he tries to help a lot, he just isnt home as much as we would like him to be :(

* I couldn't ask for a better big brother than Tucker!! He is wonderful but lately he has learned how to throw screaming fits? Terrible twos I believe

* We are also trying to potty train Tucker, he does great at school but I forget to take him.
