I wish I could have the life of a "Real Housewife!"

I love reality TV, it's so addictive, yet so horrible! One of my current favs is the Real Housewives on Bravo. It's delicious! I love it! The new season takes place in New Jersey and it's unreal the money they have! I could be a better housewife if I had their money! I don't have have a maid, cook, personal trainer, heck, I don't even have a gym membership! My house is never clean! There is clutter EVERYWHERE! I'm trying to sell a few things on ebay and I can't even do that! One item is being bid on (out of 3) and that one might just be sold for a whole $0.99! I know, don't be too jealous! I was vacuuming today and you can't even tell because my kids feel the need to run all over the freshly vacuumed carpet. I was dusting the other day and Jack asked me why I was using Daddy's cleaner. I even try to be stylish by looking like I have a champagne budget when in all reality it's a beer, wine cooler budget! But no! I put on a sundress last week and Jack asked me what I was wearing! Our only vacation this year is to Kansas City, which I'm so excited for, don't get me wrong! But....it's not the beach, mountains, spa resort, or a getaway from the kids! At least I get to eat all the BBQ and wedding cake that I want!

In all actuality, I love my life, my kids and my husband! I wouldn't trade it in, especially to be a "Real Housewife" on one of the Bravo shows. They're all crazy ladies with too much time on their hands. Probably too much money too, but I would take it! My kids don't get everything handed to them and they'll grow up appreciating (fingers crossed) the little things in life! I'm done buying toys! They're new love is our Tupperware cabinet!


I love them!

Setting a record!

Molly has gotten 4, yes FOUR, new teeth since last Thursday! She's full of cuddles but not eating very well, how can she with all the swollen gums?!!!! Yesterday, she had a 103 fever on and off, making it a rough night. We went to the doctor today and she has an ear infection in her right ear, with the 5th, yes FIFTH, tooth ready to pop anytime. Slightly uncomfortable and miserable for her, poor baby!!

On a happier note, here's a picture of her in her flower girl dress!! She's so cute!!!!

Getting so big!!

Eric brought home a doughnut a while ago and the kids shared it for dessert. They acted liked they had never eaten anything with blue frosting!


He thinks he's so funny! Actually, it was! I even helped him put more frosting on his face...probably not the smartest Mommy move!


She thought Jack was so funny, Molly put some frosting on her face!


A few days later, we're eating dinner...again! We eat a lot around. Jack is drinking less and less from sippy cups and with regular cups with lids and straws, so pretty much a cup that doesn't spill!



Well, little Miss didn't want her milk that night. NO! She is a big girl! So, I took the lid off and she went to town drinking her milk!






So proud!


Going in for more!


That is the look of refreshment!

But now we're done!


We even like to comb our hair now, even if that means getting cheese out of it!


Still a cutie, but needed Mom's help. Her new words are bow and hair, usually pointing to her head when she wants a bow. Her bangs are getting a little long, but I hated bangs growing up! I hope I can grow hers out without driving us both crazy!



Her car seat has been a favorite toy with both kids, Molly enjoys climbing in and out of it anytime we bring it inside. She is too long for it, but doesn't weigh enough to turn around. So, it's a rare occasion that we bring her car seat inside, usually it just sits in my car. When it does come inside, hours of entertainment ensure!


Since we play so hard during the day, we need to stay clean, which is why I included some bath pics! They both LOVE taking baths and we had to take one the morning after our little trip to Austin since they were both exhausted yet dirty after our trip! Molly was so excited to get in, see peed on the floor! Of course Jack yells, "Molly, we don't pee on the floor, we pee in the potty!" Giggling the whole time! She tried to touch it and play in it, I could hear her thinking, "Wow, what is this that just came out of me?!!! I have to touch it right now!!" They love taking a bath in our bathtub right now, or Jack calls it Daddy's bathtub. They play with empty water bottles, hangers, leftover Easter eggs (plastic ones), and a blow-up ball, forget buying them bath toys!






Finally, Molly has broken through 3 teeth since Thursday! She's been a little fussy and not eating the greatest, but fully of cuddles!! I love it!
I had a doctor's appointment last week, the baby is doing great! I'm 18 weeks, starting to show, but not quite big enough for maternity clothes but too big for my regular clothes. It's fun. I heard the heartbeat, it was 154 bpm, which doesn't tell me much, but sounded great! I'm starting to feel kicks, but they're not strong enough for Eric to feel! We have a sonogram on the 29th, but we're not finding out again! It was so fun the last time and we have our boy and girl, so we pretty set on things!
We'll post again soon!
