I don't co-sleep

We don't co-sleep in our house. But I would if I could!

They do grow up so quickly. I want to hold them and cuddle them forever. Yes I am having a bit of "working mom guilt" and having my "baby" start Kindergarten next week does not help.

So far I have missed it all with Little Princess, the first laugh, rolling from back to tummy and vice versa. The only part I did not miss which made the guilt even more was "ma ma ma ma". Yes I know it was unintentional and she did not know she was making my heart melt, but I witnessed it first hand with daddy and brother at my side.

A good friend of mine lost her son at 23 weeks gestation. Since then I don't want to leave my kids. I've missed it all and don't want them to grow up without experiencing it all first hand with them. In an instant for whatever reason they could be gone.

Little Man is starting Kindergarten next week. I missed the first steps, his first word, his first crawl, and I don't want to miss it all for #2. I am lucky to be able to take some time off to spend with Little Princess and Little Man before his first big day at school. He is so excited to spend time with mommy.

If we could afford it I would have 5, yes I would love to have MORE children. We could probably make ends meet except medical insurance, the never ending set back.

I encourage all of you, to hug your children every day, and even though sometimes/often they can be a handful (yes I know they can, many times several times a day), tell them you love them and that you would never change anything about them. I have never thought of myself to want to be a stay at home mom. With Little Princess I feel more prepared and ready to take on that roll, but financially this is not possible.

Cherish every moment, for they vanish in an instant and only happen once. Love your children, husband or wife and family for they will always be there for you.

Zhu Zhu Pets!

I have cleaned a hamster cage, and lost several hamsters in my house as a child, some never to be found!
Hamsters are one of those animals every child wants at some point. This is why I am excited that Mom Select chose me to review the new Zhu Zhu Pets.

GoGo Pets are fun, interactive hamsters that talk, move and even navigate their way around their own habitat. There are dozens of add-on sets so your child can create a custom world for their new friend. We're sure you'll be as amazed as we were at the sheer cuteness of GoGo Pets! Watch this adorable video to see for yourself.

Each Zhu Zhu Pets™ Hamster has its own unique personality and whimsical sounds!
Loving Mode:
Pet them, love them, hear them squeak and chatter
Explore Mode:
Let them scoot, scamper, bump & boogie across the floor or through their Hamster Habitat

No more stinky cages or lost hamsters in our house!

I did not drop off the face of the earth

But I did go in a Hot Air Balloon ride! Sorry readers I have been SO busy! My readership has dropped, as I foresaw. But I am still here and hopefully ready to rock again! So let's catch up.
Little Princess is 5 1/2 months old now. She is rolling over and has started veggies. She has had peas, avacados, and sweet potatoes. So far so good! She is teething now and very cranky at times. That paired with a nice cold is making her miserable and not a whole lot of sleep at night either!
Little Man just lost his first tooth! And he is so super excited to start school. He is having a tough times not telling us "no" and "I don't want to" but we are working on it.

And like I sid we did go on a hot air balloon ride for our 10th anniversary. It was fun. VERY loud and actually very warm.

Other than that life if as crazy as ever! Hope to hear from you all soon.
