The Craziness of Today!

I kept Michael for Ash and Pete last night since I knew they needed some rest and some "couple time". Michael is such a wonderful child, awesome little guy! He slept all night with the exception of getting up once for a bottle but other than that he conked out! Greg and I had a little spat this morning but what couple doesn't? I don't use plastic bags, I use the reusable bags when I go grocery shopping. Greg had put a bunch of plastic walmart bags on top of the fridge, which drives me nuts because I can't stand clutter. Well, when I was cleaning yesterday, I threw them away, thinking that noone used them....well, apparently he does! So, needless to say he went to work in a bad mood. I have talked to him since then though and I guess it was just a big misunderstanding.I ended up not going to the playdate...Ash and Pete had some things that they needed to get done. We live in an enclosed building and when Ash came to pick up Michael, Chloe just opened the door and let the dog out...No big deal, right?  WRONG! Ash was going to walk him for me since I had 4 kids up here. Before she could get down there, the dog opened the door and escaped! He jumped up on the window and hit the latch that opens the door! So Ash stayed up here with the babies and I took off after my dog! Edward thought it was time to play and made me chase him for 30 minutes while he peed in various places! The good thing was that at least he pooped in the woods so I didn't have to pick it up! One of my nice neighbors on the other side of the apartment complex came out and helped me catch him. He came right up to her and sat down at her feet like "I'm done playing now, can I go home?" Big Stinker! But I love my dog and he just needed to run for a little bit. I was just really worried that he would run into the neighboring complex or out on to Va Beach Blvd which is very busy! I told Greg that I was not chasing after him if he got lose, boy was I wrong! I guess that proves how much I love my old boy! My heart was beating so fast as I thought about all of the horrible things that could happen to him! He's asleep by my feet now...I Now, we are just resting at home. I have to run to the bank in a little while so the kids are resting and taking naps. I need to finish up my chores for the day. Greg has duty and won't be off of work until 5pm, which with Hampton Roads traffic means he could get caught in it. I hope he gets home early enough because I have Bible Study tonight at my friend, Karen's house with my Moms4Christ meetup group. I haven't been able to go the last 3 times due to me being sick or one of the kids being sick, and I really need some Christian fellowship with my girls! Wednesday is the start of another Bible Study that I have been wanting to take...Fireproof! The Bible Study that goes to the movie and book! So Greg and I are both excited about that! Chloe will be starting Awanabees and she can't wait! The boys will be in the nursery...I think Noah will be starting Awanabees here shortly since he'll be turning 2 on April 25th.

Chloe's Upcoming Pageants!!

Chloe has 2 upcoming pageants and she is uber excited!! She will be competing at the Miss Spirit of Hampton Roads pageant on April 5th and America's Classic Miss on April 26th. Both are natural pageants and AMC is going to be the biggest pageant that Chloe has ever done. She will be doing party dress (f0rmal), western wear (my grandmother handmade it and it is adorable), swimsuit (1 piece, and it has a little skirt), portofolio and photogenic. These may be the last 2 pageants for a while though, at least until August. She really wants to concentrate on her dance a little more and she is asking to do competitive cheerleading so we are checking in to that. Some of her little friends do it and love it!
Chloe is such a little blessing...I am babysitting my friend's little boy tonight since her husband just came off deployment. I was watching Michael and Eli play on the floor and Michael is only 1 month younger than Eli. Chloe came and sat down beside me and said "I love you Mommy!" and then she held my hand. I just looked at her and I could remember just 3 short years ago, she was their age, just rolling around in the floor. She is growing up so fast. I love her with every piece of my being. She, along with Noah and Eli, are my world.
I can't believe that just 3 1/2 years ago, I had her, and Greg and I were planning our wedding. We hadn't even thought of the boys yet.
Now, as I look at them, there isn't one single thing I would change.
God really knew what he was doing and I am so happy that He in all of his greatness, allowed me to have these 3 wonderful, beautiful little blessings. I would not trade anything for them!
I love being a stay at home mom and I don't think I would have it any other way. Sometimes I do miss working but then I couldn't be home to see them do all of their firsts.
Well, I am closing now...time to go to bed. The kids and I are taking Ash and Michael to a little meetup in the morning!
