Ryder Amelia

fair warning

It is only Tuesday, but it has been A WEEK already. You know what I mean?! It just won’t stinkin’ end. Why is it only Tuesday?

Yesterday (Monday) my kids were demon babies at the doctor, came home and took a swim in the toilet, refused to nap, and pretty much made me want to crawl into a hole and never come out.

In fact, I will tell y’all that I’ve seriously been wanting another baby and we almost decided to go ahead and seriously consider this until yesterday. They completely cured me of baby fever. Which is a big statement since I live with a permanent case of it.

I actually told Andy I was DONE with having kids and he could just forget trying for a boy. Ha!

Today was better though!

True… the heifers were at MDO…

but it was still better.

Two year olds are truly terrible, are they not? And from what I hear, three is worse.

Please, Lord, save me.

The most depressing part of all of this is that I have TWO in a row that will go through it.


Last week I think I mentioned that I was getting my car back.

Well, we were completely packed and ready to go and Andy was on his way home from work to load everyone/everything up and head to Little Rock and low and behold, the dang guys called saying my car wasn’t ready after all.

So here we are, six (almost seven) weeks later with my car being in the shop.

This seems excessive, no?

That minivan is looking better by the second.

In fact, I’ve been begging Andy to just get me one and forget my car ever existed.

But, alas, we are not made of money.

I had a good blog post for today, but I can’t remember what it was…

and I got distracted because I decided to enter Ryder into the Gerber Baby Search.

Tell me she doesn’t look like the Gerber baby….

I’m pretty sure she will win.

Want to know why????

Because I am going to HOUND all of y’all until you can’t take it anymore to vote for her starting September 4th.

So, this is your warning!

How could you say no to this face?!

and especially this Gerber baby face????

The answer is, you can’t.

You just can’t.

  1. Three IS worse, they’re smarter and faster and well, you get the picture. We will need lots of coffee and prayer in the years ahead! 🙂 Well, at least Reese is still sweet, and if you ever have a Reese, I will pray that she is super mellow.

  2. It will seem like you are stuck in preschool years because as soon as the oldest leaves a stage, the youngest quickly enters the same stage. But, it will pass. They will be fighting in the backseat on the way to school and then fighting in the backseat on the way home from school before you know it. Then comes the homework when both of them need your attention but don’t necessarily want your attention to finish homework. You’ll long for the preschool days.

I love hearing from y'all! Leave a comment below!
