Slacking on parenting,discipline and birthdays....

Hmmm.... lets see what I can blog about. If I can even get a blog post posted without getting up to go potty every 2 min;) Speaking of potty

(yes, I just used the word potty. I'm a stay at home Mom what can I say?ha)

Finley is finally potty training...(training not trained) don't get too excited!

3 seems to be the magic number with my kids. I tried to potty train Austin at 10months. You know the first time Mom thing? I read all the books etc. After that I figured they are ready when they are ready.

6 years old is the magic number to start loosing teeth with my kids as well. Landen didn't have any loose teeth so I wasn't expecting him to lose his yet. Something I'm not proud of but Faith and Landen were arguing and I just about had it. So I told Faith, show him who's thing I knew, Landen comes up crying with a bloody mouth!

Slacking at the discipline. Not something I'm proud of:/

After we all apologized to each other(even me), we told Landen that he would get a special visit tonight....

(so now I'm lying to the poor child, great!ha)

and mentioned $

His scared sad faced sure turned around fast:)

The tooth fairy was out of cash so she had to borrow $ from the oldest boy in the house. (Come on Mom get with it!) Then the tooth fairy felt bad and tried to make the $2.00 look fancy by adding glitter, stickers and a bow made out of floss. Don't be fooled, that is a fake $100.00 she glued the letter too:)

It's all about presentation when they look under that pillow right?

Landen kept telling everyone he got $100.00.

Farrah would argue and say, "No, it's fake!"

Another thing I'm not proud of....Then Landen came to me saying, "Mooooom, Farrah called me the "S" word." So I asked, "What "S" word?" (they don't know the real "s" word) He seriously said to me, "she called me "dumb."

I just looked at him and wanted to say, "welllll" but I figured I should deal with the situation instead of telling him to show her who's boss or something along those lines...

(Lord help me in these last few weeks!!!!!)

Note to self: go over letters and sounds with Landen again!

Lets see what else happened...

my brother got engaged.

It's so nice to see my brother so happy again and Jamie will be a great step-mom to my nephews.

We were all asked to be in the wedding...

bridesmaid, groomsmen, flower girls, ring bearer, jr. bridesmaid and jr. groomsmen. I think we pretty much make the wedding party ha!

Fallon will be about 5 weeks old at the wedding.

Which means I will be 5 weeks postpartum eeeek!

We had to get our dresses ordered right away. 9 months pregnant trying to figure out what size to order. I made the mistake of bringing these 2 into the dressing room with me....

They couldn't stop laughing...

Finley turned 3!

We dropped the kids off at Grandmas and spoiled her as the only child for a day!

Then we went back to Grandma's for some cake and to open presents:)

Thank you to the Grandma's and Aunt Brianna because Mommy was slacking this year in planning a party.

She wanted to celebrate Hello Kitty style....

We took her to Knotts Berry Farm....

Finley's birthday lasted all weekend. On Sunday we went to Great Grandma's for another little party with all the cousins. Aunt Brianna make cupcakes.

Finley thanked her with a makeover:)

Even Berlyn got make-up

hold still....

Berlyn just wanted to eat the make-up

all the cousins and papa enjoying the cupcakes....

she loved all the special attention!

blowing out the candles...

and again....

Finley and Berlyn...


Faith and Landen got Finley this purse.
Best friends


they asked if they could wear lipstick because it was a special day.

Only child for a day!

The kids and I decorated the downstairs so that when Finley woke up it was all pretty for her:) The kids each gave her cards and presents they got for her with their own money.

I'm "free" 3 now!

Austin picked out a present all by himself and paid for it with his hard earned lawn mowing money.

Thank you Auty!

So I'm 38 weeks.

Fallon's foot is stuck in my right rib.( painful!)

Doc doesn't think she will be big (lets hope he's right!)

I had a cracked rib at the beginning of my pregnancy. Feels like it's broken again??

Faith was 9lbs 10oz foot stuck in rib. She had to wear casts for 2 wks. Hoping that's not the case with Fallon. (Feels the same)

We signed our life away till Dec... Austin is playing football and Justin is coaching.

Austin made starting QB and is one of the captains. He survived hell week in this hot weather. I can't imagine football practice in this heat with my head stuck in a helmet. He loves it and can't wait for games to start.

Faith will be cheering for the team and Landen is helping Dad.(water boy):)

I'll be sitting on the sidelines cheering the team on with 3 cute little girls by my side:)

Yesterday, I felt so blessed, had my house cleaners come (because I'm slacking at cleaning it myself;/ ). House was all clean, laundry was done and put away. Got a massage and pedicure. My Mom even called and said she bought me a new diaper bag:)

Today, I'm really cleaners put a wax on my bathroom tile floor. Let's just say I'm clumsy these last few weeks and slipped getting out of the shower. I pulled every muscle in my body with that fall...I'm embarrassed to say that was my 3rd fall this pregnancy. These kids keep leaving toys out that I can't see because of my belly!

I need another massage!

Bye for now, maybe next time I will be posting pictures of Fallon:)

and be a little less cranky and clumsy!

the only ride I went on that day:)

I just don't think that I can read your blog anymore, if you're that much of a dead-beat mama.........

Ha, J/K, you're too cute! I appreciate your honesty. :) Sometimes pregnancy with many other little ones can be trying!

Can't wait to meet little Fallon... I've been wondering how you've been and was just going to check in, when I saw you posted! Take care, and blessings and prayers on your upcoming birth!!! xoxo
