Oh Lets Get started

So I set this blog up almost a year ago, but I was completely blog stupid  overwhelmed by all of the blog lingo.  So here it goes, I have recently started staying home with Jillian (reasons to follow in later blog), and LORD I don't know how these stay at home moms do it!!!!   I love this child to death and would not trade a minute of time with her, but lord the 2 year old fits and tantrums...oh my!!!!!  I am pretty sure this is due mostly in part to her constant need for drama, I have never met such a theatrical child at such a you age.  Every second of the day with Jillian is a party.  And I am in fact one of "those" parents I have always talked about, I cave in to keep her quiet in public settings, she had a bottle WAY longer than needed, and YES she did in fact sleep in the bed with me til a few weeks ago...and still sporadically.  I have discovered that it is so easy to say things until you are a parent yourself.  I am very aware that she is my first child, and I have learned lots, so mistakes have been  All I can do is sit back and find amusement in these situations now.  At it stands now, my entire day revolves around Jillian and what she wants and as much as I miss adult conversation at times, I would not trade a second of it for anything.  This week we also have the boys, which most people may think this involves more work but in fact Jillian lives for the Mondays that her "guys" come back.  I often wish I could tap into her mind and figure out what she thinks on the weeks they are at thier moms.  She loves these boys sooo much and she is certain they were put on this earth for her entertainment.  And god love them, they are so patient with her it is sweet.  Because honestly she drives them crazy in all the typical little sister ways.  And well no matter how much time she spends with me Jillian absolutely LOVES when her daddy comes home from work, I believe this is her favorite part of the entire day.  I grew up a daddys girl too, so I absolutely LOVE that she has this bond with her daddy too.   Well I guess that sums up my first post.  I really just wanted to get started somewhere and hoepfully in the future I can stay focused on one topic at a time.  (Don't hold your breath though, I am self-diagnosed ADHD)


She honestly seems to think her "beat" need propped up too.
This is a typical Friday night here after a "good" week at school.
