SO WHAT! Wednesday

So What WednesdayWow, my first ever guest post, I am so excited. I am pretty new to this blogging thing and to be guest posting for a veteran like Shannon while she spends some time with her brand new baby boy. As a mommy to a 22 month old little girl and a 2 month old baby boy I know how precious that time is so I think it is awesome that she is allowing other bloggers to guest post while she enjoys this time.

So, without further ado, this week I am saying so what if...

- Next week we may eat mac and cheese or grilled cheese or McDonald's every night for dinner, the husband is going out of town for work and it is just easier

- I die laughing every time the husband has to clean Mile's "blow out". He has changed a million blow outs, but Gianna rarely has them and since he is at work all day he doesn't get to do many of them right now, so when he does I think it is nothing less than AWESOME!!!

- I find myself sometimes wanting to push down the mean 3 & 4 yr old kids at the playground. I don't actually do it and I know all kids are mean sometimes, but some are just ruthless.

- My legs glow in the dark, we are going to the beach in 2 weeks, yay!!

- I love bragging on my kids. They are the greatest, what can I say.

- Working out so I can eat french fries makes total sense to me. It is all about balance people!!

These are the things I am saying so what to this week, what about you?? Thank you again to the lovely Shannon for letting me guest post. Please check out my blog and follow along if you'd like.

  1. My husband is on a business trip this week, making all easy meals this week. I feel ya with the wanting to push down the older kids, but once your kids are older just remember this! I say that because I was always so angry, so we worked with my twins on making sure they were always kind to smaller kids and now they are both so wonderful with little kids.

    1. Definitely will remember this, trying to start working on it now since she has a brand new baby brother. :) Hope your week without the hubby is going well.

  2. The ONLY reason I run is so I can eat and not feel guilty...or have to buy a new pair of pants in size 100! :)

    Oh and wanting to smash older kids when they are mean...that's what moms are suppose to do! I once chased a few teenage boys after they went after my 7 year old son saying they were going to beat him up. Funny seeing a group of boys bigger then me running from a 5' 3" my husband says I looked like I was crazy so maybe that had a lot to do with it! HA!!

    Great guest post

    1. Thanks girl! oh good, I know, I hate having to buy bigger pants! lol, too funny about you running after the teenage boys, especially being so petite. Kids amaze me!

  3. My legs are glowing too! Oooh well.... What can ya do!?

  4. haha, thanks for the support ladies. I am glad there are other's out there who run just to eat, who glow and who want to beat up on the mean little kids. @Katie, I know, I am definitely trying to make sure they do not treat other kids like that. We are working hard on the "mine" phase right now. :)
