Well, it's been here and it's gone. Summer...true but not what i'm talking about. I'm talking about...
The First Day of Preschool for the Twins
I took the kids last Thursday to their first day of Preschool. What a exciting day it was. I was prepared to cry...for the to cry and for many hugs...
Instead, this is what I got: Alright and since that wasnt exactly what I was expecting on the first day of Preschool EVER - this wasnt what I was expecting either once we got to school:
...and finally, just when i was expecting tears (from me) and flipping out and crying and screaming...this is what I got: Yeah, you got it. No crying...no whining, no nothing. They were too excited to get to school. And seeing them run down the stairs and seeing the smile on their faces and hearing them talk about what they did at school...made me so proud. My Big Boys......my babies aren't so little anymore.
So it's been a few since I've posted anything. I've been putting in applications all over the place and trying to find a job and having tons of fun outside with the boys. I finally have a job, I've started working at the YWCA in Canton as a Before/After School School Age Teacher and while the kids are in school, i'll float, I believe. I work from 8 - 4:30 and I'm in the process of getting the kiddos into daycare. The boys will go from daycare to Preschool and then from Preschool to Daycare for lunch and a nap and then they'll wake up in time for a snack and me to pick them up. Mostly it'll just be getting them to and from school. So, for now, mom and dad have been watching them. They've spent quite a bit of time down at the farm and are enjoying every minute of it. See??? Peyton Driving Paps tractor...what a smile. :-) Landon and Peyton having a snack at the farm. Dont they look like Pig Pen from Charlie Brown? Luckily, by the time i get home from work, they've already played in the water and are rinsed off and not so dirty LOL. Also, since we live near Canton, we're near the Pro Football Hall of Fame and we spent one night chasing the hot air balloons. it was totally cute, Brenden had his "camera" (one of mine that was broken). He would say "Wait, I have to get a picture!...Click....." and I'd say "Did you get it?" and he would say "No...." It was totally cute. Then, when we were almost ready to go home, we saw a balloon going down in canton. We pulled into the lot near it and watched it land...in a nice empty gravel lot...which was fenced in completely. It was funny watching them try to figure out how to get the balloon out of the fenced in area.
We were also in the Community Parade in Canton. We were on the Mothers of Multiples Club Float. And we were in the Twins Days Parade this past weekend. See us in the background...green and purple wagon? I got crafty on Photoshop and used it to make us shirts this year which we got printed professionally that way they wouldnt be ruined after the first time we wore them. So...that's about it. Going through alot of stuff over here....soon enough i'll post about it. I have more pictures but i'll have to post them another night. Have a good night, i'm headed off to bed. I get to go Roller Skating tomorrow with the kids. :-) I know i know, break a leg. Ha!
Hi, I'm Amanda. I'm a single mommy, superwoman and "doctor" to my three miracles. My first two miracles came in the form of identical twin boys born at 36 weeks - as seemingly healthy as the could be. They're 5 now but around 3 months old, we found out that they had inherited Retinoblastoma from me (yeap, I'm a cancer survivor too...). That's when I learned that sometimes, what doesn't kill me ultimately makes me stronger. Good thing too becasue 18 months later, I met my third miracle. He's 3 now but before he was born, we found out that he would be born with a CHD called Transposition of the Great Arteries (TGA). After spending about a month in the hospital undergoing not only bedside surgery in the NICU but open heart surgery and spending a few days on ECMO (Heart bypass), you'd never know now what he'd gone through aside from the scars on his chest: his battle wounds...the door to his heart. There's hardly anything you can tell me now that I wouldn't be able to handle; I'm a Mommy23Miracles.
