Yeah, I was tired of the old blog. Plus I hadn't posted anything since February. What's new with you? We've been great. Busy, but great. I'm sure that I'll devote some postings to things we accomplished over that last 4 months, but not tonight. Tonight I just wanted to let you know that unlike the Gosselins...we're in it for the long haul. :) I always loved their little mantra, "It might be a crazy life, but it's our life." Somewhere along the way, they lost sight of the "our" part. I'm afraid it became "my" life for the adults in the equation. I have loved that show since day 1 and will pray for their family. In the meantime...I look at my house full of boys. I hear their loud voices. I feel the walls shake as they play basketball...inside...AGAIN. After I took the darn nerf ball away...and hid it on top of the refrigerator. I see the milk glasses on the table that they *forgot* to take to the sink. I see the wet swimsuits on the carpet floors, waiting for a Mama to pick them up. I see the action figures arranged PERFECTLY, all 1,375 of them. I see the tractors, monster trucks, army men, and baseball cards. Treasures. Thrift store purchases...priceless to them. I see my 3 little boys transforming to 3 big boys...and it makes me sad. Just yesterday K and Z were new. 3 and 2 year old "newborns" to us. And G...wasn't he just born? Now he is starting kindergarten. Oh, my heart aches. And my face hurts - from smiling. These kids are hilarious. They are wild, lively, loving, beautiful messes. I heart these boys. And their Daddy. It may be a crazy life indeed, but it's OUR life. And I wouldn't trade it for the world.

**DISCLAIMER*** Given the recent Jon & Kate drama, I would like to make a few things clear. First of all...don't expect me to cut my hair in some scary asymmetrical backwards mullet. Won't happen. Secondly, if you're looking for Shawn on the bar scene at night cuddling up to some young teacher...you're wasting your time. He's got all the teacher he needs right @ home. :) Also, he will not be sporting fancy 3 carat diamond studs in his earlobes anytime soon. If any bling is to be purchased...it will be for Mama. Maybe this will clarify any confusion you may be having. For those of you not familiar with Jon and Kate, you probably think I have lost my ever loving mind. Just play along...you know Amy...she's crazy like that. :)


  1. I'm SO HAPPY you are back. Although I see you and the boys, I LOVE reading what you write. I love you and my boys (that includes their daddy)!

  2. I have checked that old blog 2 zillion times trying to see what's up. I am glad you have a new one. I need to do the same. I can't log on to my old one. Love you Aim!
