Week one...

...of life as a wife, mother, and kindergarten teacher was pretty good.

I still have a few kinks to work out.
Mostly on being a mom.
Nate tells me I'm only fun when other people are around.
I told him I'm just not at my best between 6 and 8 in the morning.
I need to work on that.

I need to work on a lot of things, but MOM will have to be at the top of my list.
Well, that is kids come 2nd to the hubby of course.
He always comes first.

Kindergarten is a down further on my list, I think it is almost easier.
Most of the work is done for me, I just do what the book tells me.

Where is the "how to be an awesome mom book"?
At least the cousins think I'm awesome, (funny how they are not around at 6 am).

I will work on it.
I promise.
I wonder how I would act if everyone just did everything I needed done without me asking them to do so?

I would be an awesome mom for sure.

Until then I will try harder.
Maybe I will actually make a hot breakfast for them every morning.
Laugh when their rooms are a mess.
Happily pick up all the clothes left on the bathroom floor.
Sing while wiping up yet another spill.

Who am I kidding.
I'm going to try and count to 10 before reminding them of all of the above.
It's a start.

Now on to week two, minus the yelling mom.

I'm sure the pioneers NEVER yell at their kids.

We don't believe you. You're always awesome! I love your fence picture but the cows are missing. :)
