My Friday....

Wow, did I have the worst day at work....EVER! As I am sure many of you had heard that we were robbed on Friday at the bank in Rolla. It was a scary situation, but luckily everyone was safe and unharmed.

To address a comment on my prior post (not like I should even have to explain myself)...

But apparently I am a "bad parent" and "sad" amongst other mean things that were said because I chose not to take Hunter with us to Mexico. Am I the only parent in the world that has taken a vacation without their child? Excuse for me not wanting to put Hunter through that at 7 months old.

I would like to know where "Anonymous" got the idea that I have a "partying lifestyle." I am about as boring as it all know, you read my blog!

I know I should just let this comment go through one ear and out the other, especially since they didn't bother to put their name, but I am a person who takes this to the heart. Damn it, I am a great mom and I love my son and would do anything for him...and shame on you "anonymous" of accusing me otherwise!

I'm Back!

I know…I know it has been forever since I have been on here! Get off me!

Ok, where did I leave off….oh we were just leaving for Mexico. The trip was wonderful, I could have stayed down there forever! The weather was amazing and the beach was beautiful! I will try to post some pictures in the next couple of days. We stayed at a resort that was all inclusive and that is the only way to go. You could eat and drink all day long and never have to whip out any cash…it was great! We spent much of our time on the beach and in the ocean jumping waves. We all ended up burning ourselves to a crisp on the second day even though we were re-lathering sunscreen all day long. The sun in Mexico is a lot fiercer than it is in Missouri.

I know you all want to ask….Did you get the swine flu? NO! If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me that I would have enough money to go back down there. Some people have reacted in very outrageous ways to the fact I had just returned from Mexico and they feared that I had the swine flu. I was having no symptoms what-so-ever and yet people were still scared to death of me. Their Loss!

It was really hard leaving Hunter! What made it worse is how many children there were on the resort. I could never imagine taking Hunter with us! But every time we saw a baby it made us think of our little boy…*Tear* We did bring him back a little sombrero and some maracas! Of course it looked like he had grown in the few days we were gone…not only that but he had started saying DaDa. Darn it…He was supposed to say MaMa first!

Let see what else has been going on? I have started reading the Twilight book! It is really good. I refuse to watch the movie until I finish the book. Everyone talks so highly of it that I hope I have not built myself up to much to the point where I am disappointed when I finally watch it.
I feel as if I have been so busy in the last couple of weeks. But I can’t think of what else we have been up to. If I think of anything I will let you know!

Before I was a Mom,
I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby.
I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunizations.

Before I was a Mom,
I had never been puked on,
Pooped on,
Chewed on,
Peed on.
I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts.
I slept all night.

Before I was a Mom,
I never held down a screaming child so doctors could do tests or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.

Before I was a Mom,
I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put him down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much.
I never knew that I could love someone so much.
I never knew I would love being a Mom.

Before I was a Mom,
I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body.
I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.
I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child.
I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important and happy.

Before I was a Mom,
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
I had never known the warmth,
the joy,
the love,
the heartache,
the wonderment
or the satisfaction of being a Mom.

I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much,
Before I was a Mom.
