Put that thing back!

monster incTonight was our movie night.  We watched some classics.  Finding Nemo, Monster Inc and Toy Story.  Everytime I watch them, I see things I didn’t see the last time.  Now, I’m the type, everything I do and watch I’m always looking at ways it applies to my life.  Hey, that’s how you get the most out of things!

What stood out to me in Monsters Inc, was when the One Eyed monster was telling the other one, “Put that thing back where it came from!”  He was talking about the little girl (lol).  I remember after having my kids I’d be sooooo sleepy that I’d wish I could put them back in my stomach while I take a nap.  There’s no sleepy, like a new momma sleepy.  That’s the sleepy that’ll make you cry like a new born baby, sleepy.  That’s the sleepy that’ll make you wanna knock a nightmare into your husbands dream while he lays there and snore, sleepy.  I know all you mamas know exactly what i’m talking bout.  Anywho,(that’s the way I wanna spell it) We had a great movie night.  By the way my 2yr old is getting more involved with watching the movies now.  I find myself watching her reactions.  So cute.

He cooked the chicken!

If you’ve been following my blog this week, you’ve noticed a series of events.  First, I came home Monday and the kitchen was clean and ready for me to cook.  Second, I came home yesterday and hubby had the potatoes going and we finished dinner, Neely style.  Today, I came home,  potatoes, veggies and bread was done.  You know what else?  He cooked the chicken (choir singing Hallelujah…….).  He cooked the chicken!  The dinner was done.  All I had to do was sit down and eat.

Now you know what that means?  Thursday & Fridays are the days I pick up the kids.  So, when he makes it home from work, the only thing he’ll have to do is sit down and eat.  If that wasn’t a Mama Remote moment?  I don’t know what was!

When mama’s happy…

momEveryday is a day that i’m thankful to be alive.  Every Monday is another day that I complete all the stuff that I didn’t the week before.  Today was Columbus Day so the children were all home with dear Dad.  I was at work taking a break from them.  You know what I’m talking about.  We love each other dearly but in order to continue to walk in love we can use a break from one another.

Before leaving work today my hubby asked what was on the menu for tonight?  We decided on tacos, beans and rice.  So, I asked him to get the ground turkey started.  In the back of my mind I was hoping I came in to the clean house I left behind.  Nothing says Arrrrrrrr!  Like coming home to a sink full of dishes and starving faces that don’t see the dishes in the sink. 

Much to my suprise, when I came in, the house was spotless and the ground turkey was finished.  That’s what I call team work.  When mama’s happy, you can eat in peace.
