It’s Sunday, which means new week of linking up at the Every Day mom link up! I almost didn’t post this week but thought better of it. An old coworker posted on FB about an incident at a local pet store. There was a man approaching families with kids, and asking to take their pictures with the puppies. he didn’t work there and didn’t buy anything. When he approached her family, she told him no but he asked again. This time she firmly said no pictures and he moved on. It is scary to think of what that man is going to do with those pictures. The ones where the parents let him take of their kids.
This incident has left me wondering about my blog and the fact that I am no longer comfortable sharing pictures of my kids here. So, I have decided to continue with the blog , but no longer share pictures of my children. It at this point is what I am comfortable with.
So.. Now that story is over, let’s begin the Link up! Add your link by clicking the blue from below and let’s have some fun!
I hope everyone is enjoying their Valentine’s Day! The hubby gave me and the girls flowers and chocolates last night! I may or may not have consumed an entire box of chocolates for dinner last night..
Valentine’s is always a special day for me. it was the day that my then boyfriend asked me to marry him. He bought hundreds of valentines, wrote on every one and filled them in a bag for me to open. Later that evening we rode in a horse carriage ride around downtown and then her proposed on the beach. We typically stay home on Valentines and enjoy diner at home, but I always think about that night.

February is soon upon us. When did that happen? This week I have spent my time taking care of sick kids and completing homework assignments. Thank you to all who shared a post last week, there were some great ones! The theme seemed to be mommy needs some alone time. I feel the same way. I do not want to be touched non stop. Here are some of my favorite posts from last weeks link up!
Crumbs off the table gave us a funny post on potty training. Check it out and I promise you will laugh hysterically.
Sarah gave us a post titled I love you, now please stop touching me. I have to say I have been there and stay there almost daily. A girl needs her space.

This week has been full of school assignments so I have not been on the blogosphere sorry about that, but I did finally read all of your posts this morning. The three year old has a fever so we spent much of this morning cuddling and now that he is napping, I can get this post up for you guys!
I really enjoyed this post by Charlie at Mum On a Mission. This is a situation I think we can all relate too.
Chaos seemed to be the theme this week and Whitney gave us a look into the messiness of motherhood! let’s just face it, we have all wanted to run away at some point.
Lastly, Autumn gave us a look into things that will not wake up her toddler. I laughed a little because sometimes a freight train could not wake up my little ones.
Thanks to everyone for sharing such awesome posts! Now on to tis week’s link up!

This week has been spent getting back into the school routine for me and the kids. I am taking two classes at once this semester and so far it seems manageable. I have been working on bits and pieces of homework each night after the kids go to bed, so far it is working out. The kids are glad to be back in school, but the 6yo has been falling asleep on the couch every night. She is exhausted. Hopefully this week will be a little better.
We had so any great posts this past week and I hope you all come back this week! There were 19 posts added to the link up which is awesome!
I really like this post by life, Kids and a glass of Red! I can relate to wishing for a tantrum free anything, check out her humorous post about Christmas Day! Click here to read her post 🙂
Another post I really enjoyed was van by the river’s post about her daughter going away to college. I just can’t even describe the emotions I felt while reading her post. The thought of my three kids leaving for College just brings tears to my eyes, and I just can’t.. Click the here to read this great post 🙂

This week has been filled with illness recovery Christmas lights a family portrait taking! I am exhausted just thinking about it. Now it’s time for the Every Day mom link up! Thank you to all who participated last week! This will be the last link up for the year as we take a break to enjoy the holidays! I will begin the link up again the first week of January, but feel that we are all rushing to finish our Christmas lists and enjoy the magic of Christmas that we need to put our focus there. I will still be blogging though. I am hoping to draft a few posts today, if the little one will finally settle down for his nap!
So.. For this weed your post and have some fun!
The Christmas Season is here. Filled with lots of traditions and sacred treasures. One tradition that I wish would stop is getting sick a couple of weeks before Christmas! This household has been recovering from upper respiratory infection, strep throat and double ear infections! Oh wait, that’s just me lol. It started with the kids getting a cough and then I had a cough and imagine my surprise when the doctor said I had strep and double ear infection. Tis the life of a mom I guess. Anyhoo, we are on the mend, but everyone still has a lingering cough.
I am currently listening to Christmas music and enjoying the house all to my self. yep, you read that right, I am home alone!!! The husband decided to take the girls to the park to ride their bikes with a plan of 3yo staying home with me for his nap. Well, would you know that little boy very slickly got his way and off he went with daddy and the girls. So here I am cleaning the house and listening to getting in the Christmas spirit.
We had a great link up last week with some awesome posts! I shared each of them twitter to get you additional exposure. Below are the few I decided to highlight on the blog.
I really enjoyed Brittany’s post on the seasons of motherhood. Click on the picture to check it out.
The next blog post I really enjoyed had me laughing hysterically! Then again, what I would have done if I found bats in my home. Check out Steph at Who’s my favorite today and you will be glad you did!
