I coach gymnastics for 2 hours on Monday evenings while my kids are in their own gymnastic classes and Beck is in break dancing. Last Monday was my first time. Violet cried in the babysitting room (there at the gym) for a long time. It was rough.

I don't take many pictures of myself because well, I guess that that would be vain. Haha! But I got my hair trimmed and decided it was time to document what I look like at this stage of my life, other than the yearly family pictures.
Writing my blog posts sitting in the parent pick up line at the kids' school. Beck is riding the bus to neighbor kids house so he can get a ride to football practice because today is my first day back coaching gymnastics since Violet was born. And I'm sad because she doesn't feel good and I just want to stay home and hold her. But paisley and penny have gymnastics during this time, so I would be there anyways waiting for them. Beck will also have break dancing during this time once football is over.

Wonderful Aunt Tiffanni permed Penelope's hair and we love it so much! She hates having her hair combed or done, so I was looking for something that would make our days easier and this perm is hopefully doing that! Thank you Aunt Tiffanni! We are still all in shock that she actually sat and let her do it the whole time...
There is a girl in Gilbert, Arizona named Cherish. She is a young mother of 4 little ones hay accodently left her baby in a shopping cart and has received some horrible backlash on social media. Some people even calling for her head or to be thrown in prison. I understand how awful this could have turned out, but the baby is fine and clearly loved and cared for. What I don't love is how quick everyone is to jump out and cry for someone's head or whip out their phone to record an incident other than help. My mother in law always talks about how when she was raising kids that everyone pitched in and helped. Everyone looked out for everyone else. Definitely not like that anymore. Now I just look over my shoulder al the time worries about who is judging me or going to call Child Protection Services to try and take my babies from me. It seems so ass backwards! Drives me nuts! I want the sisterhood back, I want mothers who want to look out for one another instead of one up one another. Let's me helpful not hurtful. We are all in this building the kingdom of God on Earth together!
