The Ramblings of a Busy Mom

I don't know where all of my time is going. I look back and have no idea how I found the time to post here every single day for over a year.

Life has been busy and I have so much to say but so little time to say it!

Makenzie seems to have fully recovered from the flu. She is back to her normal happy self and this mommy is so happy!

Today Makenzie had a little adventure at school. I got a call from the nurse about 10 minutes before pick up time to tell me that during a diaper change Makenzie's g tube had come out. Crap! I was not upset with her school team at all because this happens however the last time her button came out it ended in a trip to the ER and today just wasn't the day for that.

I rushed home from the grocery store to pick up her extra button and then to the school in a grand total for 8 minutes! When I got there Makenzie was in the nurses office laughing with her aides having a good ole time! I got everything ready and slid the new button right in on the first try. Makenzie gave a pretty good sized pouty face but there were no tears ( except for her aide). I am not sure if me or her aides and the nurse had a bigger sigh of relief after it was back in but I think we were all very relieved!

Even if the button would not have gone back in I would not have been upset. I know the aide who was changing her felt horrible I hope that she understood by the time I left that this really is not that unusual and I have done the exact same thing more then once! The school did EXACTLY what they were supposed to do.  I don't think  Makenzie could be any more safe and well cared for at school!  I just LOVE all of  those people so much!

It also dumped 15 inches of snow on Friday and Saturday. We really have not had much of a winter around here until last weekend. We were more or lest stuck at home for a few days. I watched as post kept rolling in from friends on facebook about stocking up for the storm and I just had to chuckle as I looked over at the piles of food I have managed to score for pennies over the last 3 weeks since I started couponing. There was no need to run out to any store before the storm hit. Even after being snowed in for 3 days we did not even put a dent in our new stores! Let me tell you what an amazing feeling that was.

On Sunday I took Makenzie out to play in the snow with her brother. She LOVED it! She giggled as the snow crunched under her feet. She waded through snow up to her knees and even laid down in the white magic long enough for me to snap a few pictures and make a beautiful snow angel!

Two of my boys have also started playing roller hockey. They are having so much fun! This is the first organized activity I have allowed them to participate in since Makenzie's accident and it feels so good to be back on the side lines cheering my kiddos on! I did not realized how much I had missed being a "soccer" or in this case "hockey" mom!!!!!!

There have been moments already where I have wondered if I bit off more then I could chew when it comes to fitting two more activities into our lives but we are making it work and the boys are having a ton of fun!

Makenzie and I are also preparing for our first real..... in the van..... for 13 hours...... across the country..... road trip in just over a month! I am so excited to be in attendance at a good friends wedding where I will watch my daughter, all dressed up like a princess, WALK down the aisle as a flower girl!!!! More on that to come soon!

Even though live is very busy....... it sure couldn't get any better!

Believe..... Prayer Works!
