Ok so I thought it was a myth! Like seriously! But here I am, trying not to strangle my 2 year old. He is all of a sudden not the precious, well behaved little boy that I have raised; he is a little tyrant! My older two were not at all like this. I have always gotten compliments on how well behaved my children were. They all have very good manners, even the two year old normally. I mean don't get me wrong, they still act their age, and by no means robots, but they say please and thank you, excuse me and bless you. They are well behaved at other peoples houses, but know they can cut loose at home. My oldest went through a limit pushing stage at three, and my daughter still tries my patients sometimes, but nothing like my youngest! All of a sudden he just seems to have to decided he doesn't have to listen to a word I say!! He pushes and bites his older brother, and when I tell him to quit doing something, he completely ignores me! He destroys everything in sight, and has recently decided to just not eat anything I put in front of him. I even let him choose lunch, but when I give it to him, he screams!!! Oh, people pleeeeeaaase tell me this will pass soon. Lie if you have to!!!! I need a time out!! Thank the Lord for bedtime!!!

So today is just not so good for me. I have the couch prison blues, and my nerves are on end. I have been on light bed rest for three weeks, and I'm going crazy!!! My house is a disaster area!!! My husband is not the cleaning type. Not to put him down in any way. He works during the day, comes home and cooks dinner, gets the kids ready for bed, and waits on me hand foot, but getting him to clean up the kitchen is not seeming to happen. And how can I complain!!!! Poor guy! But I hate it my kids are not living in "my quality cleaning". I am allowed to get up a little now and then, but managing laundry, slightly tidying the living room, fixing lunch, and "trying to keep the kids out of trouble, more than wears me out. The last thing we need is for my new monkey in the making to be two months early!! And sometimes I think my kids get some sort of mental fax that mom is frazzled today, so how can we make it worse!!??!! I know not true, I'm sure they are acting normal, while everything just seems to be dramatized in my mind. I am ready for my hubby to be home!!! And ready to go to bed. Maybe tomorrow will be better.

So to get started on my new blogging adventure, I thought it be appropriate to introduce you to my family. We are a family of 5 with one on the way. My Mr. Independent who is 6, my Diva Queen is 5, and wild man is 2. We are a crazy blended family, where my oldest is mine from my first marriage, and he lives with his father, and my daughter is my husband's with his first marriage, and we have custody of her. So there are two other families we have to deal with. It gets crazy, but we all make it work (well some). Soon we will start another adventure, in which I plan on homeschooling Diva Queen, at least for kindergarten, and then we shall she what she wants to do after that. Then another (adventure), at the end of Sept. (hopefully he waits that long!!!!) which we'll be welcoming our 4th child to our crazy world. (Poor thing :p) So I hope you enjoy following us on our many adventures, seeing our happy and accomplished moments, and hearing me rant about our not so happy moments. I look forward to hearing from other who know what we are going through, and those who just like to put their two cents in. Happy Reading!!!
