Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

My Job is Done

One week and one day into Summer vacation and I received the best compliment from the kids.  Its hard to listen to the cries of boredom which settle in shortly after school schedules end.  I made a promise to myself to avoid hearing that this summer by keeping the kids busy.  We've been to the beach, Water County and Busch Gardens.  Handsome has spent two nights at a friend's house and Puddin Pop has spent one night away.  We have had friends spend the night here on two different nights and have been up late catching fireflies and enjoying the company of our awesome neighbors on the nights weve all been home. 

The compliment?

I asked the kids what they wanted to do today as I served them pancakes and sausage for breakfast.  They both looked at me and asked...

"Can't we just stay home today?"

Mom's job is done...

until tomorrow.


  1. I love this.  It's very encouraging.  Can't wait to hear more from  you this summer.

  2. The fact that my 6:30 risers are also slleping until 8:30 is further encouragement:)

  3. My daughter was a 6:30 riser too!  She is giving me a little more time in bed these days.  Sometimes 7 and even a couple minutes after.  You must be really wearing them out if they are sleeping so late.  I'm going to have to work on doing that with Noah.  We just came home from the local waterpark and as soon as we hit the door of the house, she is like "mommy wanna play with me" I'm like "uh no, we just got home from the water park, a little tired" lol.  I know she is tired but that doesn't stop her from playing "Dollies".  What's good is that she might have her little friend coming over tonite while dad and I go on a double date and the babysitter watches both of them.  

  4. Great Job. I bet you were glad to stay home. They can be a lot of work. My granddaughter has the whole summer planned out.


Thanks for stopping by. Let me know you were here.
