Hockey Mom?!?!

Some of you might find this hard to believe, but I have become a hockey Mom.  You know - those crazy women you see at hockey games that never sit down during the game because they are following their children around the ice.  The one's that can't carry on a conversation because their eyes never leave the ice? 

Yep - that's me....

banging the glass as my son skates away with the puck....

Gonna be a Good Day!

So, I work from home - which is FABULOUS!  Although, it can also be a curse.  There are many a day when I don't get out of my pajamas, except to put a fresh pair on before bed that night.  You know it is bad when the big kid says "Mama, you look beautiful" when you are wearing jeans and a T-shirt!

Anyway - today is going to be a good - productive day.  Why, you ask?  I actually got a shower in before coming to work! 

I know - doesn't sound like much, but to a busy Mom living in a crazy house with boys - that is all I need to make it a great day ;)

Happy Friday!!!

Picky Eater

I have a picky eater.  My little one will not eat anything except brown sugar oatmeal.

He asks for this morning, noon and night and when I refuse, a tantrum ensues.  This is very bizarre to me, as my big kid would eat anything.  He ate hummus, curry, "chicken and fries" - no questions asked.  Not little one.  Oatmeal.  Only oatmeal.  Sometimes 3 bowls for breakfast.


Here he is, asking for more.  How can you say no to this?

20 pounds!

I did it! 
20 pounds are gone!  So excited. 

And how did I celebrate?  Burger King with Isaac and Noah ;0 

Some things never change!

So - I work from home.  Which is both a blessing and a curse.  I am still able to act like a stay-at home Mom because I see my kids at random moments throughout the day.  I need a drink of water - quick visit with the boys.  The curse is that I am at home, so the boys don't always think of me as at "work."  I have meetings where I am constantly on mute so the other attendees can't hear my screaming/fighting children in the background.  I have become an even more amazing multi-tasking Mom.

The best part of working at home is moments like this morning.  I'm in my office (the dormer in my bedroom - LOL) and am working, cross-eyed on reports and hear unabandonded laughter ringing through the house.  My babe playing with Dad.  Absolutely the best part of my day so far!

Working - as a Mom, an employee and becoming a healthier person.

I hope to use this blog to document my journey - in all of these aspects of my life!

Mom:  doing ok - learning everyday.  Got some snuggle time with my babe this morning - love that time :)

Employee:  doing ok - again learning everyday.  Trying to be firm and "boss like" is not in my nature - trying to get better at that....

Healthier Me:  Down 11.5 pounds!  Yahoo!
Tried 2 new recipies today, that were awesome and totally MF acceptable!
1.  Choco chip muffin:  MF choco chip pancake mix in a coffee cup in the microwave, drizzled with syrup - FABULOUS!  much better than the actual pancake ;)
2.  Choco cake filled with PB (are you sensing a theme here - LOL) MF brownie mix and MF chocolate chip pancake mixed together.  Placed batter in muffin pan with natural PB in the middle - also FABULOUS!

what are you working at today?
