I'm sure that most of you moms reading this have had those moments when you fall more in love with your kids. Well the other day we were just eating dinner like normal. I'm sure I yelled at the boys more than once while cooking and eating. We were having sausage gravy and biscuits (one of nate's favorite and the first time ben had tried it). As we were trying to convince nate to eat the rest of his dinner I looked over at Ben and he had the cutest smile and I looked him and said "Hi Ben". He screamed with happiness and clapped his grubby, chubby little hands together. I just melted. He was so so so cute. At that moment I fell more in love with that crazy little man. Even when he was covered in gravy which I knew someone was going to have to clean up. That's all, I just wanted to remember that little moment.

Mother's Day

So today was Mother's day. When we were trying to have a baby I was always so sad on Mother's day. I was Jealous of all the moms that got to see their kids sing in sacrament meeting and the cute mother's day things that they made in primary. This was my first Mother's Day with Nate being in primary. I was so excited to see him sing and get my little gift. Well it didn't happen quite like I pictured. Nate had to be coaxed into going up to sing and instead of singing he played in the curtains (We have some construction going on and have sacrament meeting in the gym). I ended up making my own craft because Nate would have nothing to do it with it. He was screaming and being kind of a mean boy in primary. He wouldn't sit in his seat all he wanted to do was follow me or lay on the floor because he needed a "rest". I had to help him fill out this cute questionnaire they do every year in primary for the moms and here is what he said:
1)My mom is 3 years old.
2)My mother likes to play wii.
3)The most fun or funniest I ever saw my mom do was play wii
4)I like it when my mom plays at Chuck E Cheese
5)My mom's favorite food is pizza
6)My mom is as beautiful as Princess Peach
7)If I could give my mom anything , I'd give her some blobs
8)I think my mom would like to go to Chuck E Cheese
9)My mom dislikes the wii
10)The thing I hear my mom say most is SHHHHH
11)My mom is smart! She even knows how to play wii
12)When my mom wakes up she plays wii
13)I love my mom because I'm your mom

Can you tell what's on this boys mind all the time :) I'm pretty sure the only reason Chuck E Cheese is thrown in a few times was because we went there yesterday for his cousin's birthday :)These answers made my day. Even though the day wasn't going how I pictured it it was still perfect I love being a mom and I love my boys. Happy Mother's Day!!!

Feeding the boys

Ok so I need some suggestions. One of the daily tasks that I find the hardest is to figure out what to feed the boys. It's sort of overwhelming to know that I have to make 3 meals a day and snacks that are not only good for them but that they will actually eat. Sure I could feed Nathan and Ben noodles for every meal and that would make them happy but not me. So my request is if you have any meals that your kids will eat that are good for them let me know cause I can use all the help I can get :)
