everyday is groundhog day with a surprise. . .

As a mom, sometimes it often feels like groundhog day...

1. You wake up to chatter (sometimes screaming) from the bedroom down the hall around 7am.
2. Clumsily you crawl out of bed, and head downstairs for milk and breakfast (coffee for me).
3. Clean up the breakfast have some play time which consists of Judah emptying the cabinets, drawers, and cleaning supplies...to tumble and climbing time...
4. All of a sudden it's 12 and you are making lunch and cleaning up the mess again...
5. Down for a good nap (which often feels like I need to take one too)
6. Up for some more play time, begging to go outside or at least to the garage.
7. Then it's dinner already, I'm out of ideas for what to cook and before I know it...I'm cleaning up a mess again (or Joe is...he tends to do more of the cleaning in our house...it's a blessing and a curse all in one)
8. We are cuddling on the couch, grab some more milk and Judah's down for the count...
9. Then it's catch up with the husband time and I crash on the couch...

Ok, so not everyday is just like that, because I tend to keep myself occupied with too many other fun things (work, cheerleading, moms group, throwing parties) all of which is soon going to appear on this blog...

I'm attempting for 2011 to blog at least 3 times a week (if not more)...I guess you could say it's a resolution, but I look at it more as an outlet. My everyday's are interesting...and I hope you can get some joy out of peeking into my life with 2 boys (for now)...

Today's Surprise :: Judah discovers mascara on the way to church.

I'm sure you are wondering why he had mascara in the first place...well, it was a quick easy teething object that I thought was working well...I guess it worked great in his opinion.

Things to come this week . . .
1. I've switched my work schedule to work Tuesday, Wednesdays, Thursdays (used to just work Tues/Thurs in the office)...but I'm excited for this new change...I'll let you know how it turns out
2. Throwing a baby shower for my sister-in-law (shabby chic) with pictures to come
3. Hanging out with good friends and double-dates

PS- Thanks to my husband Joe for helping me come up with "Everyday Laine"...I guess he thinks I'm entertaining everyday...ha!

Looking forward to sharing my life with you...
