Tumble town

Lil has taken dance since she was three but this year the class times didn't work out for a brand new kindergartener! So we decided to give gymnastics a whirl!

She went yesterday with Maggie and Stephanie to try it out and reported she "wants to go back!".
Thanks steph for taking care of my girl and for the pics!

Nail biting

My dear sweet husband is about to chew his nails off watching the exit polls. Noah has begged to stay up to watch the election day results. I for one will be relieved to see the final votes. Election day is the only day we are "red" in ky!!!

Way back when I was just a wife, and not a mother of three, I decided I wanted to have freedom in my job to set my own hours, control my own schedule, etc. I used to despise being on someone else's clock... So instead of working nine to five at a "regular" job now I often work all day as a stay at home wife and mom, afternoon till evening in the studio or salon, and night until early morning hours in the office....hmmm...

But... In the end it's worth it. I have been blessed to stay home with my children...I haven't missed any of their little milestones along the way. When they are sick they've stayed with me or daddy and I have got to share countless stories, class parties, ball games and dance classes.

Financially, we would probably be better off if i worked a full time regular job. We might manage a few more vacations or dinners out. But the trade off has been worth it!

Sis is pierced...

Lil has been asking to get her ears pierced for about a year now. We finally got daddy to agree so we took her to get them done. She did great and never even shed a tear. She told me when it was done, " mom I'm so happy!". She now has discovered the jewelry shopping network which she calls "the earring show" and it's her new fave...
