Well, here we are on the start of our journey. Needless to say, these two crazy kids will not make it any easier...
Pray for us! :)
Here are some pictures from our journey so far.
I felt a little nostalgic when I finally left Pennsylvania. I really hated that place but it is where I had Biggie and lived for the past two years. Things are changing and there is never really any way to know if it is a good thing or if it will be in the best interest of my entire family. I can only hope that things will work out and that we can all be together again soon.
For the past five years, we have constantly moved. These moves have always been the result of Mr. Wonderful's Oil and Gas Pipeline jobs. Once he is done with his work, we always moved on. With one kid it was always an adventure. We had a passion for moving and seeing the United States. For me, it was a break from the life I had lived 20 years.
Since Biggie came a long two years ago, our focus changed. We want to provide our children with sometime of stability. If it was a given that we would always live somewhere for 2-4 years I don't think we would have a problem continuing on that road. But in this business it is never a given and you are constantly fearing for another move. This is the main reason I decided to bring my kids home. I never made any real friends in Pennsylvania, so I was always in a depressed funk. Yesterday I weighed myself, and over the course of 6 months I have gained 10 pounds. I just can't believe that this is how everything has worked out.
I'm sitting here with my happy and healthy kids that miss their daddy now and I am on a diet.
Can you spot the baby?
We are moving again...
This time it is just the kids and I. We have decided to go home because I can't take another impending move. So, things have been super busy around the house again! I can't rule out any future moves though!
Why do all our vacations/moves have a crazy story? This trip was not any different. For the Fourth of July weekend we decided to go about an hour away and stay at a hotel. We have season passes to a small water/roller coaster park here. With another imminent move we thought it would be a nice outing for the kids before the chaos began.
These are actual quotes and in no way reflect my parenting skills.
- Our future is in the sky.
- Let's sew something with toothpicks.
- When I grow up, I want to be a black person.
- Your fat is softer than my pillow.
- Coffee smells like old trashcans.
- I like watching biggie's butt jiggle, it makes me happy.
- Daddy's an old man.
And finally my favorite..
- Mommy, your neck wiggles like a turkey.
Thank you Sunny Bear for you words of wisdom. Never a dull moment!
