I can do this....right?

Ok so it seems many Moms/people have blogs these days. So why not try my hand at it. I am funny (not looking dad) sometimes. Want to keep our family up to date. So here I am making my own blog.

At this point of our life journey we are living in Mississippi. We have been here a year now and I think we are getting adjusted. Course just when you think that life has a way of throwing a monkey wrench in there. But that happenes to everyone everywhere so really we are no different, you and I.

So for the first time last night I had trouble helping one of my kids with their homework. I have helped 2 other kids of my own all the way through graduation and countless neices and nephews with things here and there. But my 14yr old daughter stumps me with her Spanish 2 homework. How can you give a spelling quiz in a language you can't pronounce? Well I did the best I could, (thanks to Dora, Diego and a spanish to english dictionary) we were able to figure out most of them. But I think I need to be tutored by her teacher just to help her study.
It brought on lot's of laughter by everyone in the house, and even the 2 year old came to the kitchen table and said OPEN to one of the words. At least he got it right.
I am scared already to think what it is gonna be like when the 2 year old reaches High School.

Speaking of the 2 year old. Isn't it funny (not haha) how each child is so different. The daughter was never sick growing up, the first ear ache came in 3rd grade. This boy of mine, it seems he is sick all the time. Is there a corelation to him being in daycare where she was always taken care of by my parents? Or is it just his imune system? Who knows and I don't suppose it really makes much of a difference, it won't change the fact that he has to go to daycare, because I have to work.

I will be glad when all of my family members get well, at least for the most part. It sure does wear a Mom out to worry and take care of her spouse and kids. I know I signed on for that job, but whew I need a break sometimes. Today my break came by going to work. I have only clocked 39 hours the last 2 weeks, which in theory sounds good not being at work. But the paycheck is going to stink. And I wouldn't said I had a good time while I was off, if I am gonna have that much time off I want to have my toes in the sand or building camp fires at night.

Ok I am gonna close my first attempt at a post. More to come later.....


  1. I had to google a math term for Levi's 2nd grade homework.... and I love math....Mr. July would have laughed at me for sure!
