Random Thoughts for the Day

Or maybe this should say random vents for the day? I am aware this may tick some people off but oh well its my blog and I can say what I want.

1. It really irritates me that some people leave their children every weekend because they need a break or to go party. If you need a break every weekend, I don't think you were ready to have children. Yes there are times when I could use a break and there are times when my parents will give me a break and watch the boys (thanks nana, papa g, mimi, and scooter). But in the grand scheme of things when the boys are eighteen and headed off to college will I sit and think I wish I would have spent more time relaxing? No! Will I wish I would have spent more time with my kids? ABSOLUTELY! These years are precious, soon they will be in school (sniff, sniff) and not want to spend time with their momma. I am so blessed to be able to stay home with them and soak it all in.

2. Onto the next rant, it also irritates me when people call me TELLING ME what I am going to do. Excuse me I think I am a grown woman and I will TELL YOU what I will be doing. And because me and my husband are Gabe and Grant's parents and have their best interest at heart, we will be calling the shots for them too. Afterall,  that is why they call US mama and dada.

3. On to better news, my wonderful husband gutted the whole master bath today. Woohoo! A week before the boys birthday party we had noticed wet carpet in the living room and found out it was coming from the shower in the master bath. Of course I was freaking out because their party was at our house and I was invisioning the smell of mildewed carpet throughout our house but once we stopped using the shower and used some fans to dry the carpet everything was a-okay. Our only option was to take the shower out so that we could fix the pipe so we figured we might as well remodel the bathroom because we had been wanting to do that anyways. We have been taking a shower in the guest bathroom which I also hate, so I will be glad when all of this is done. I wish I would have taken a before picture before it was gutted out, maybe I can find some from when we bought the house.

4. While he was being productive working on that I taped off the walls so I can paint the trim in the boys room. Sadly we never got around to doing the trim after we painted their room. It is now even harder to find time to do it because normally we work on stuff while they are sleeping but we couldn't for this project because of course they sleep in their room. I am also redecorating their room in a vintage cars theme. I wanted to do this while I was pregnant but I couldn't find any crib bedding so we went with a jungle theme. If I only knew what I know now, baby bedding is such a WASTE. You can't use the baby bumpers for the majority of the time because they could suffocate and because it is a pain to change the sheets with bumpers on, you can't use the quilt again because they can suffocate, the bed skirt has to go when you move the crib down to the lowest level. The only part you use is the sheets, so what's the point of it all?

Anyways, I doubt anyone is still reading but if you are God bless you! I will be keeping you updated on all our little projects.

Oh, yes - crib bedding is such a waste! I learned that real quick with my twins and we did not make the same mistake with our singleton.
