How I roll...

I'm Mommy....
and this is how I roll...

I've gone through more 60 hours of hard-painful-no med labor (E)

I've had a c-section (S&G)

I've had 5 missed spinal taps before it worked

I've been peed on

I've been pooped on

I've been puked on

I've held screaming twins until they fell asleep

I've carried three kids to the same time

I've rocked all my babies to sleep

I've stayed up taking care of one or more sick babies

I've had toys thrown at me

I've had food thrown at me

I've rushed to the doctor's office with a child that needed stitches

I've called poison control

I've breastfed for the last 5 years

I've gone days without a shower

I've taking care of 3 little children, while having the flu


I've loved everyday of it! I am MOMMY!

For the last almost 6 years I have been called mama! I wouldn't change it for anything!!

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

BumGenius Artist Series!!

This week bumGenius came out with Tiny Socialite Collection bumGenius 4.0 Artist Series!! I am totally in love! Other than prefolds, BG's are ALL we use!! We love them! They look just as great as they did the day I got them in the mail. My twins are so cute in them! So needless to say I was stoked when BG came out with the Artist Series! They are amazing, funky, bold, everything that I want in a dipe!

So why am writing this you might ask? Well currently on the Cotton Babies blog there is a AWESOME giveaway to win ALL 5 of the Tiny Socialite Collection!!! Oh how I want to win!! All I have to do is answer a question to be entered!! So here goes nothing:) If you haven't used BG diaper I really want to encourage you to buy 1 or 2 or 12, they are the best! I promise you will be so happy you did! Ok so back to the question:

How do you encourage a creative, artistic spirit in your baby, toddler or young child?

we have 1 year old twins and a 5 year old son.

For all three we are always doing fun little this year for Madi Gras my older son made a awesome Madi Gras mask!!

For our older son we are always having him make up stories, songs (both singing and with the piano) He also really enjoys drawing, so I have him draw a picture of ANYTHING, then he makes up a story to go with his drawing! It's so much fun!

The twins are always wanting to do what big brother is doing:) So I always encourage them to color...without eating the crayons:) I have always sung to them and recently they have started singing...all the time! We are a musical family so every evening we put on music and just dance!!

Music, dancing, drawing, and making up stories are the way to go for my little one:)
