He didn't lie

About 3 weeks ago Matteo cut his hair almost to the scalp with those scissors that hardly cut paper. So, he got in some trouble for doing something wrong. ( Not that I dont remember doing that twice at a much older age)And all the while I tried not to laugh. I did made it through.

The scissors were taken away. Then a couple a days ago a cute little face said to his mom. " Mommy I promise if you let me use my scissors I wont cute my hair. All I want to do is make valentines for my friends". Melt my heart of course you can buddy but no haircutting. He played and cut for more than a hour. Wow I thought this is great. " ummm mommy, I didnt cut my hair, but I did cut a hole in my pajama pants and top". Parenting fail, I laughed.

Lost my post and January Birthdays

I wrote,edited and posted pictures on my first post in about 3 months. And then I accidently erased the entire thing. Gone, poof, see ya later. I almost cried but I didnt.

So here we go again!

On January 4th my little man turned 4!He loved Christmas and his birthday this. He was so into it...

January 10th was Frankie's big day she turned 13. I am officially the mother of a teenager. She is making the big move out to BC ahead of us. I dont know what I will do without her for over 2 months....

Man I love those too. We had such a good day the three of us taking pictures. Frankie had alot of great ideas. She loves photography. They are both artistic and they certainly didnt get it from me.

Moving On

We are selling the house,along with alittle bit of our dreams. So many problems. Some people who were supposed to be working for us and instead worked against us. But you know what 8 mos ago when I thought my marriage was falling apart, I dont think we would have been able to make it through this. But we are without fighting,namecalling and hurt feelings.We have been through so much this past year and we are dealing.

So we are taking a break and moving to something like this....
And who knows if we like it,maybe we will buy it.We may just have to start a new dream. But at least we have eachother and that is all that really matters....

Chugging Along

Been Awhile but I am still here....

So much going on and most of it not pleasant. This has been one of the more turbulant times of my life. But we will get through and I know others have been through worse. I dont want to feel like I am complaining all the time. But in all reality, I dont say much. Aside from a bit of venting on Twitter....

But all the same I have so much to be thankful for..

A stronger bond with my husband.

A stronger self

Two of the best kids around(even though we are going through Early teens with one}

And really that is all I can ask for...

Well that and maybe a small lottery!
