Today a great friend sent me an email that inspired me as a mother, daughter, sister and friend. It is a short video that is only 1 minute 40 seconds long.

Ok, here's how this game works-the first 3 people to leave a comment on this post will receive, at some point during the year, a handmade gift from me. What it will be and when it will arrive is a total surprise! The catch is that you must participate as well. Before you leave your comment, write up a pay it forward post on your blog to keep the fun going (or be lazy and copy and paste like I did). Then come back, let me know you're going to play and sit back and anticipate the arrival of your gift! Well isn't this fun?

2 days ago I laid Kylee down for a nap and told my wonderful husband to do the same since he had to work that night. Mattie and I went to the front room together to watch a movie together. I sat in my recliner and accidentally fell asleep. I woke up when I heard Kylee making a little noise in the baby monitor but then the talking stopped so I fell back asleep. My next awareness is hearing the velcro on Kylee's diaper. I open my eyes to see Mattie CHANGING Kylee's diaper. That is right my 4 year old got my 16 month old out of her crib and changed her out of her pj's and had clothes to change her into for the day. She then was changing her diaper! Mattie at this point saw that my eyes were open (quite largely I might add) and she says very calmly "Go back to sleep Mommy I got this." I was so shocked!! I was about ready to cry to see how responsible my 4 year old was being. She knew Mommy was tired and she wanted to help out. That day I actually felt like I might actually be doing something right as a Mommy! :) I am so blessed to have such great children and an amazing husband!! I am especially thankful for Mattie and knowing what a big helper she is with her little sister. I am going to need it for the next few months and especially after the end of October because then we are going to have 1 more child to add to the family!! That is right I am PREGNANT!!! We have seen the baby in an ultrasound and heard the very strong heartbeat. I have been nice and nauseated which is a great sign. It is the one time in my life when I am grateful to feel like I am going to be sick because it means my baby is doing good! So if my posts are more spread out that is why. Have a great day!!!

If only they looked and acted like this all the time. :)
So it seems like the days you really don't feel good your kids are ALL over the place! Kylee is already my mischievous one and causes trouble most the day but TODAY!! Ugh! She has been on fire with all kinds of trouble. So I had my mom watch my girls for a little bit while I ran an errand and when I came to pick them up it was anything but pleasant. I was trying to put Kylee in her car seat and she was stiff as a board! She was not going to bend to sit in her chair. So am literally pushing her hips into the seat long enough to get the buckle locked in. As I am doing this I hit my head so hard on the side of the car. I had a lovely red mark on my forehead. Also just a reminder that I already wasn't feeling good anyway so now I am so exhausted! Billy is gone for work so I am wrestling both my girls to get them to eat and get them ready for bed. Then I turn around to get something for Kylee and I hear something be poured all over my recliner! That is right a huge bag of stick pretzels all over in my chair. Here is my immediate thought "Is it bedtime yet?" I am about to cry from not feeling well, being exhausted and wrestling with my girls all day! The pretzels was just the frosting on the cake. So on that note I am going to bed and praying really hard that tomorrow is a little bit easier. :) Also I just want to put out there I LOVE MY GIRLS TO PIECES!!
