Let it Begin!

Okay I've been really contemplating whether or not I start up this whole blog thing again.  Well as you can tell you can see what the winning vote was.  I'm posting right?  Okay so I really pretty much knew I was going to start this up again.  It's been a nagging thought for about a month that I needed to really get back on this.  For sooo many reasons but really probably one of the largest is of course my (ok my in this case means "my little family") journey with Nya and where she is right now with everything in her world where she's been and where she's going.  Because I'll be the first to tell you this girl is going!  With all the spit fire she has she's way too determined not to.

In addition to having the feelings that I needed to get going again, I ran across two blogs in a matter of a couple of days and it hit me that yep I have to get going on this now.  I'll share those blogs with you later but really they are totally awesome blogs that really make you think and then come back the next day to see what you get to think about again.

Okay well before I leave I'll leave with a fairly recent pic of all the kids.  And yes this is normal in our life

See none of the kids really looking at the camera.  All needing haircuts.  The baby is getting hugged a little too tightly.  Oh keep track of that Nya girl's hair...
 Oh look if we kind of smile mom will you please be done with the camera?
I've given up hope they are totally more interested in the parade (we were at the homecoming parade this day).  Oh but do you see Nya's cute pink brace?  Yep try getting shoes to fit over that and get one to fit the right foot.  Yep you just give in and buy two separate shoes...its a story all on its own for later!
Ok for a quick note on the hair- You will see more crazy hair outfits etc. Nya has only recently let me put any kind of pretty in her hair normally it's just down and in her face unless you get a special day like this where she decides that she is going to do her hair by herself but hey the necklace matches.  But really consider yourselves (if there are any readers out there) to be warned about hair and clothing.  One thing I'm pretty lax about is the hair and clothes unless we are doing a photo shoot or going somewhere that it matters more.  So yep my kids are often very "stylish" in their own way.  Maybe it will be cool someday? But in the mean time I'm all about keeping this real on what my world is really like!

So there are no promises on where I'm trying to go with this new little project- that's what I'm calling it for now. So I don't know how regular I'll be posting but it will be more than every few years.  Also I'm sure I will totally be jumping around as I have missed the last several years of our lives.  See doesn't it sound so sad when it's put that way.  I hope I have great memories stored somewhere and the pictures to prove it!

  1. HA! As if ANY mom of 4 kids has their hair/clothes/accessories all perfect every day.

    Well I know ONE mom who does but she's psycho and her kids are annoying. So there.

    NORMAL is good. Heck. Boring is good. It means a general state of happiness in my book. :) Now back to the dishes..
