Buried in Snow

Here we are, with snow up to our eyeballs and more snow on the way!!! Hard to believe how snowy it's been this winter in the Northeast. We're setting records left and right!

Flattery Will Get You EVERYWHERE!

I recently had someone tell me that she wishes she could be a parent like me. At first I thought she meant a stay-at-home mom, but then she went on to explain how she never sees me yell at my kids (okay, truth be told, she's just never SEEN me yell at my kids LOL) and that when she thinks about her own kids she reminds herself of me with my three kids. I was so touched and flattered! I mean, who cares if it's not completely accurate?! Who cares if sometimes I DO yell at my kids? Because the truth is I work very hard every day to be the kind of mom I want to be. I definitely don't consider myself there, but I think recognizing it and working on it is half the battle. So even though my BFF laughed (yes LAUGHED) when I told her the story, I'm still flattered by the compliment that someone doesn't think I'm a crazy mom, but one to aspire to. I may know the truth, and will keep myself grounded in the reality of my parenting, but I'll take the praise too. :)

We Have a DATE!

Friday, February 4th is the BIG DAY! That's when Chloe will have her eye surgery. It shouldn't be a big deal, but sugery is always a least a little nerve-racking. I'm sure she'll do fine. . . it's mommy and daddy you have to worry about! LOL

Other than that, things have been pretty quiet around here. We had an absolutely wonderful break with my husband home. We spent lots of time with family and friends and were able to enjoy some nice family time before heading back into the "real world" this week.

Chloe's been a busy girl learning to walk! She's all over the place now. it's so fun to watch her go. Below is a video of Chloe playing in her peek-a-boo chair. It's pretty cute near the end. :)
