The Joy of Parenting

So lately I have realized that as a child I never pictured myself getting married at 19 and then to have a baby at 21. I had plans and dreams. I wanted to become an accomplished cosmetologist; I wanted to work on a movie set, own my own salon, and have a steady clientele. The last thing I wanted at 21 years old was a kid....actually i never dreamed of having kids and raising them.. I thought that was actually torture. It is interesting listening to clients that come into Sport Clips..(the majority of them being men)..they say the things I used to. Kids are....too much money, too much time, annoying and too much work. Or I get the... I am too selfish or I am just not cut out to be a parent or dogs are so much easier than having kids.

I have a message to anyone who feels or who has ever felt this way about being a parent. Parenting is HARD WORK! but the most rewarding thing I have ever done in my life. It is the most amazing thing to be able to look at your child and see yourself in him or her. My son is a lot like me; the good qualities and the bad, but he has taught me about life and also about what is most important. He has taught me to love and also how to be loved. He has taught me the importance of a FAMILY! Families are eternal and they are always here for you and will be by your side through thick and thin. He reminds me to laugh when I am really stressed out, he reminds me that sometimes it is ok to cry about things even if they are not-a-big deal, he reminds me about the little things in life that make me happy and that sometimes in life you just need to turn the music up and dance. Here is a list about some of my favorite things my son does:

He gets so happy to see me when I come home from work.

He loves listening to country music with his mom.

He loves being outdoors

He loves water (pool and the bath)

He loves Food

He loves kisses on his cheeks

He is best friends with Tigger, Mr. Octopus and Mr. Spider

He loves to be apart of things and always wants to know what is going on

He loves to be held.

He looks like his mommy.

He is so inquisitive

He is good at grabbing things

He is so strong!

The Things In Life That Makes Me Happy.

So lately I have wanted to get rid of the extra baby weight along with the couple extra pounds that found resisdence on my hips before I got prego. I really would love to run again but since having Bentley it really hurts to run. So I decided to get into walking. I started doing 2 miles and then I started going farther and farther and now I am up to 4 miles. It feels amazing to get out and work out. There are a few reasons why I am enjoying this..They are:

1. I am getting a nice tan while walking outside!

2. I am getting in shape and hopefully getting some muscles.

3. I love being outdoors.

4. Bentley enjoys being outside (that makes me happy cause he is not screaming).

I also have been going through all my music that takes up half the memory on my computer and i found some really good classic songs. It had been forever since i have listened to alot of my old favorites. Like this one.....

or this one...

Man I love country music and it brings back alot of good memories from when I was a child. I don't know if I am the only person who puts memories to songs and smells. Like I have this one perfume that I wore my junior year in high school and I remember certain events and people when I smell that certain perfume.

Anyways pictures of the new apartment are coming but I lost my camera charger. So i bought a new one and once i get that one in the mail I will get pictures up!
