NinaMy name is Nina, but the little people running around my house call me Mommy. :) The MAN and I have been married for almost 9 years and it hasn't always been easy, but it has been FUN!! Together we have 3 kids, 3 dogs and 2 cats. So yeah, we're busy. I enjoy cooking, baking, reading, taking pictures of my kids, gardening and just generally spending time with my family. I love blogging about my everyday life as a Mommy and wife. There is never a dull moment!

I Did What I Said I Wouldn’t Do…….

I did it. I bought my son a cell phone. I have a really good reason though!!! We don’t have a home phone, so if something happens my kids have no way of getting in touch with me. What could possibly happen?? Their dad watches them while I work, he’s almost 50!! Anything could happen!!…

Starting Off The School Year With A BANG!

Turns out that my wonderful, adorable, so well behaved angelic children, are just plain children after all. Noisy, talkative, interrupting children. Both of them have been getting into trouble at school. Lex actually had to call me yesterday to explain what he had done and to let me know his card was now on yellow. They…

The First Month Is Always The Hardest

School has started. We have been trying so hard to get back into a routine. It isn’t easy, especially when we have to be up and out an hour earlier to drop Lex off at middle school. For now the 3rd graders go to the middle school until the new school is finished, which means…

40……

40. 40. 40! 40!!!!!!!! My birthday is next week, and yes, I will be 40. I feel so…..grown. Almost like I know everything, but I’m still learning. I don’t feel “40”, and I don’t think I look “40”, which is a good thing. 😉 My kids are super excited for my birthday. Although, at first…

My 6 Year Old Lo…..

How did this happen so fast?? My baby, my last baby, is 6. That is a huge milestone in our family. She is going into first grade, she’s not so little anymore, she’s starting to have “grownup” conversations, she’s funny, she has many friends now, I’m not the center of her world, but she still…

Spring Cleaning……Also Known As Torture

I hate cleaning. It’s just so tedious, I have no time for it. Problem is, I’m the only one who really knows how to clean. Todd cleans, he does the litter boxes, dishes, folds the laundry and puts it away, and he straightens up, but he does not know how to clean. I like to…

Shhhhh……Winter Is Leaving

I don’t want to say this too loud for fear of jinxing us all, but I think winter is finally leaving. The snow piles are getting smaller, the days lingers and the weather warmer. We have survived. Just barely. Lo has had a tough winter. If it wasn’t one illness it was another and they…

Not A Fan Of OPK…….Other People’s Kids

I’m just not. I love my kids, my friends’ kids, but I draw the line there. Most kids annoy me, not all, but most. You see, I never wanted to have kids of my own, but then the teenager happened, and I liked her. Then I turned 30 and Lex happened, and I liked him,…

I’ve Made A Terrible Mistake……

When my oldest was born I was all like….”Yeah yeah yeah…..I got this. I won’t talk to her like she’s a baby, I won’t homeschool her. I won’t spoil her. I won’t blah blah blah…”. Then Lex was born and I was  all like “OH MY GOD HE IS NEVER LEAVING MY SIDE!!!!” See what…
