Time Flies!

Boy how time can fly! I cannot believe that this is my last week at home with my babies! As much as I have loved this time at home, I am very ready to get back to my kiddos at school. Some people may call me crazy, but I am not cut out to be a stay at home mom. I love my babies with all my heart, but I need the structure of work (not to mention the adult interaction!). For all you stay at home moms out there, I commend you! And for those of you that feel like I do, know you are not alone and through all the comments that have been made to me, I know that I am not a bad mom by being ready to go back to work. In fact I feel that I am a better mom by going back to work. A very smart lady told me yesterday that "It's not about quantity, it's about quality". I don't have to spend all day with my babies (quantity) to get all of the quality time that we need!

And of course I can't post without a couple of pictures of my babies!

Brother and Sister

One of the questions I get asked all the time is "How is Cale doing with Madelyn?"

I am so pleased to say that he is doing awesome! He loves his "little sister" as he calls her. He constantly wants to love and kiss on her. And I promise that I cannot leave the room with her without him right behind me!

He wants to hold her and feed her too. Mommy just has to be there to help him because when he is ready to move on, he is done. He is too funny!

I love these shirts that I had made, but hate that I didn't get a picture of both of them together wearing them!

It's official

After 2 long years, and more hours of work than I would ever care to add up, my reward arrived in the mail this week. It is funny how one piece of paper makes all of the time and effort worth it!

Cale's 3rd Year photo book

I have worked on finishing Cale's 3rd year photo book while I have been home.  And then I took advantage of all of Shutterfly's specials going on (20% off books, $10 off a $30 purchase and free shipping!).  So I got it for $21 :)

Click here to see it.

I hope to start on his year 4 book and start Madelyn's year 1 book too before I go back to work.  I am very sad to say that I only have 2 more weeks at home....wow the time has flown!  I will be back with more picture soon!
