The Return

Hello hello! I've been gone for a very long time but I'm back and ready to blog at least a little bit!

Allow me to reintroduce myself! I'm a wife of a wonderful, hard-working, God-fearning man and a mom of two lovely little girls, C and G. C is 4.5 years old (going on 13 so she thinks!) and G is 20 months old. I am homeschooling C who is working through kindergarten this year, although she might go to school next year so we will see where life takes us. I am a cloth diapering, co-sleeping (Yes, G still co-sleeps from about 3am on), baby food making, breastfeeding (well really G gave that up 2 months ago), clean eating, God-fearing, fun-loving mommy. I am also a special education teacher full time in kindergarten through second grades....man some of those kiddos sure do keep me on my toes! I'll probably talk about the fun games and such that I do for them from time to time (although of course you won't hear any specifics about those kiddos for confidentiality purposes).

C keeps me on my toes! She definitely is my more defiant child. We are working on a program called We Choose Virtues to help instill all virtues, with obedience being our focus at the moment. Her favorite phrase right now is "Okay Mom, I'll obey right away!" She is so smart, caring, and loves to take care of her little sister! She is also on the move all the time and long-ago decided that she doesn't have time for cuddles because she is just too busy exploring life.

G is my snuggler! She would sit on my lap and "huggy" all day long if I would let her. I am pretty sure she would love it if I would still Moby her! She does go to play but she prefers to take me with her, although she also is quite attached to her big sister so if C is there G is more willing to run off and play. We just took her paci away except at naps/bedtime and she has done well with that...until she gets tired or upset. I'm also quite excited that she has suddenly noticed that her big sister has school every day and she now wants to learn "counts" and colors.

On my blog I hope to post at least twice a week as work will allow, review products for the kiddos, talk about life as a momma, share my adventures (and mis-adventures) and create a space of encouragement and understanding. This weekend I will be doing a bit of an overhaul on the looks of the blog to create easier use for all of you.

Have a wonderful week!
