Being a mom is hard, any mom knows that. But I also think it totally normal for Mom to have slumps. Sometimes I feel like I never write on my blog about myself unless I am in a slump. But it’s good for me to write about the downer times. But my life is not a big slump, it has a lot of ups which makes the slumps so….slumpy (sick of hearing that word yet?) I think the biggest thing weighing on my mind is finding a job. Oh so stressful. My heart just aches wishing Dan and I could figure out exactly what we want and get it! While we have both turned to our Heavenly Father for guidance, it’s not that easy! Dan finishes school in 4 months which is beyond exciting and more than just a little nerve racking! Dan doesn’t deserve the best, he has earned the best! He has gone to school for 9 ½ years and stayed at the top of his class without playing teacher’s pet or stomping on anyone in his way. Can you tell I am proud of Daniel? Than there is the issue of raising a family. Some days it fun, exhilarating and rewarding. Then there are the days that stink, the days where you are holding back everything you have so you don’t go all Ricky Lake on your sassy little two year old! The days when you clean up the same mess for the ten thousandth time, while the nasty toilets that you had nothing to do with are waiting in line for you to clean also. The days when your children expect everything from you in an instance but give you no sort of gratitude in return. You know, the days when you want to just sit in front of the TV and let the world fall apart around you and let the kids find their own lunch out of the cheez it box and wait til the hubby gets home to take over. It makes me think a lot about my testimony in the church, because I do rely on God a lot. Dan and I have had or heard of many friends that have fallen away from the church. We both agree that at our age it’s kind of a your in or your out sorta thing for religion. So it’s a prime time for people in their late 20’s early 30’s to fall away from the church. When I have these slumps I wonder why God is not keeping me happy. But to think about giving up on such an amazing friendship would be a tragedy. God has helped me plenty of times in the past, he has given me so much hope and love of this life. It reminds me to instill the love that I have for Heavenly Father into my children. It also reminds me that life is not perfect and sometimes we have slumps, some longer than others but if we stick it out with a long time friend we will get through it. Blah onto my photo over load of my kiddos that I love to death but drive me absolutely crazy!

I am way behind like usual with blogging, but I wanted to post the the last few months of photos of my baby girl! I love, love, love having a baby! She is pretty funny and puts up with so much from her big sister. She trying so hard to crawl right now and gets so upset that she can only go backwards. But she is happy as a clam if you let her lean on something so she can cruise around on her feet. She has great balance.
