My greatest blessings

The greatest thing that God has blessed me with is my children. While there have been times I have wondered how we are going to make it. And even though I did not plan them all I can not imagine my life with out them. God knew just what I needed and when I needed it. He has been with me and is showing me how to be a good mom, though I always feel I can do better. I am glad that we can just go in their rooms and play and have a great time and they are not upset and disappoint they don't get to go to Pump it Up, Monkey Joes, Chuck E Cheese, the Zoo, and so on. While I take them when I can it is not as often as I know that most kids would like. But I am very grateful that my kids don't mind and love me the same. Thank you God for my blessings.

Which cereal is best

So we ran out of rice cereal and someone had given us oatmeal cereal but we have found that it does not dissolve as well and cakes up the bottle and you have to adjust the nipple. So now I'm wondering which cereal is best. Will the others do differently as well? How many different kinds are there? How are they made? Could they be contaminated with things he shouldn't have? Do you know any of these answers? if so please let me know.

Need more money

I have started babysitting and making a little money that way. And doing some odds and ends but I am still needing more money, to be able to catch up on things and not loose our means of transportation to get the kids to their doctors apts. I have not had luck with KnottyNykki, but I am not going to be taking it down in hopes that something will come of it in time. I am going to start selling Pampered Chef, and hopefully be able to get the rest of the money we need to be able to survive and breathe.

Thoughts of a mom

At the end of it all your kids wont care if they had desinger clothes, was able to take gymnastics, able to go on vacations to the Grand Canyon or Bahamas. They will not care that they stayed at home while others went to the movies, they did not eat pizza every night, or that you were more strict on them than other parents.
In the end all they will care about is you reading to them or watching TV with them. That even when you were tired and wanted to go to bed you cleaned the house so they were not living in filth. That even though dinner was late they got to help you and you taught them how to make their favorite meal. That you taught them how to play using just their imaginatoin and a stick to be able to save the princess and beat the magic dragon.
In the end the only thing your kids will care about is that you loved them and were there for them.

Well it seems to be working

We have had to play around with how much cereal and how much formula to give him at once but he has not vomited since The beginning of the month. I guess that I will not need a second option after all. He has been a little fussy, but I am wondering if it is not because of starting to teeth. I can't believe that he is 3 months old now.
