Its time! Time to catch up on things in a Five on Friday post! Gotta love these girls for inventing this linkup… pure genius. Am I right? Or am I right?
1) Lets start with my RA. It has been hurting me a good bit this week. I started eating better though and yesterday was the first day I have had an “alright” day. Wasn’t great but it wasn’t terrible. I have been doing a lot of research on RA and foods that effect it. I have cut out dairy and wheat (as much as I can) and maybe it is helping? I am not completely sure but my appointment isn’t for another month so I am going to keep doing what I am doing and try to eat more anti inflammatory foods like grapes more often. On the days I hurt really bad I am thankful for the heating blankets my momma sent me;)
If the pain gets really bad I will take a pain pill to help me sleep. Sleeping has been one of the hardest things besides taking care of the babies while hurting. I didn’t know something like arthritis could be this serious and so debilitating. It also makes me feel like a failure as a mom and wife. I am trying my very hardest though and very soon I hope to be back to my normal self.
2) New Blog and new name! Y’all might be wondering why I revamped the blog. To me it was time. I am not the same person I was just two years ago. I have grown as a mom, wife and human being. I know things now I didn’t know then. I know how to do more things at once and get all of those things done at once. Hence, the multi-tasking momma. I just love the new look. I want to take this blog places and I want to blog more often. I plan on starting more projects for you, crafts for kids and even videos on how to use your Silhouette cameo!! I’m excited for the year to come for my blog! It should be a good one!
3) Taddle Tails- Do your kids love telling on each other? Well, mine do. And at this phase it is “Mom, JP said BUTT”. Yes, in this house BUTT is a bad word (although I use the alternative A word a lot more than that). We prefer the word hiney for the kids to use. They heard the song Anaconda by Nikki Minaj once or twice and ever since then they walk around, all day long, singing “Oh My Gosh, look at her hiney”. Yes, I know hashtag- bad mom. Sometimes they’ll slip on the word hiney and replace it with butt because they think it is funny. Ok, it is kind of funny but I don’t want them saying that word when they go to school or while out in public so I try not allowing it at home. As soon as one twin slips up the other runs to me saying “he/she said BUTT MOMMMMM”. I then tell them to quit being a taddle tail and they look at me like wwhhhaaaatttt? I don’t want them saying bad words but I also don’t want them to taddle on each other. Oh well, we will see.
4)Have I mentioned that my first borns are THREE?!?!?! Yup. My babies are no longer babies. They are officially three-nagers. Guess what else? They are paci free!! They only used it to sleep with but I took it away cold turkey two weeks ago! They’ve done amazing. Blog posts on both of these coming this week!!
5) Maddie is my baby doll. Seriously. This child will let me put anything on her and she loves everything. The only thing she hates is having her hair brushed! Like screams out in pain and says “eeeyyyyeeesss” when I brush her hair. Every time I brush her hair. Really, Maddie? I know it is not hurting yours eeeyyyyeeessss. Anyways, I can put a dress, tunic, ballet flats, boots, sandals, leggings, panty-hose, anything on this girl and she loves it all! Jocelynn is super girly and is going through a dress and panty-hose phase right now but she always has something to say about what I pick out for her. I know things will probably change with Maddie but I am enjoying dressing her and playing around with it while I can! She has figured out that she loves cowboy boots. I gave her JP’s old boots after we brought him some new ones in Gatlinburg. She was all dressed up for New Years Eve night and was so excited about her boots!! Love you my sweet sassy Madelynn Rae.
