I Can't Be Super Mom!

For the past few days I have had an awful cold.
I have been so extremely exhausted, and I keep wishing moms/wives got sick days.


They don't.

Not even a little break.

And I learned if you take one...

You're screwed.

Yesterday I was sooo tired and sick, and Jackson had got what I have had 


I gave up.
I didn't think about the consequences I just didn't do a darn thing except take care of Jackson and lay there.

(except I did stay up late after Jackson "went to sleep", more like I put him in his crib and he screamed on and off, to do my assignment that was due today)


I come home from school after a 10 hour day at school feeling completely trashed because I am still sick,

to find the dishes piled a mile high in the sink and the overflow all over the counters,
Trash everywhere,
The load I had put in the wash yesterday is still sitting in the wash,
toys, diapers, clothes, and whatever else you can think of all over the floors,
2 1/2 photo sessions waiting to be edited,
and I'm supposed to make dinner because I haven't had anything to eat since breakfast because I don't have time for lunch on school days.

Needless to say I broke down.

Jackson was screaming with snot dripping down his face, 
and I'm staring at the disaster I call my home wondering how the crap I am supposed to do all of this, and fix dinner, and rest, and do homework....

So instead of hopping on it and being a good mom/wife/student/photographer I am sitting here venting because sometimes a girl's gotta vent.

End of rant.

Pumpkin Patching!

Growing up we always went to pumpkin patches to get our pumpkins in the fall time.
It's something I've always wanted to do with my family.
And tonight I finally got my husband to go!


I'm an IDIOT and forgot cash so we weren't able to buy anything haha but we still had fun!

I love doing things as a little family :)

Don't they both look thrilled to be there?

Happy October!

Things You Can Say In A Baby Voice....

So just recently I've actually listened to the things I've been saying to Jackson.

I realized that most of them only work because I am saying them to a baby in a baby voice.

If I were saying them in a normal adult human voice they probably wouldn't be acceptable.

{Do any of you mommies feel like a complete IDIOT after you get through saying something to your little one just to make them smile?}

Here are some things that you could say in a baby voice to a munchkin,
but not so much to an adult in a normal human voice:

"I'm going to eat you"

"I'm going to eat your face"

"You are so fat!"

"I'm going to get you"

"I'm going to get your naked bum!"
 {Okay stop those thoughts. BABY BUMS ARE ADORABLE}

"You have such a stinky booty!"

"I'm going to eat all your toes"

And then who could forget the phrases I say that make absolutely no sense 
such as...

"bleh bleh bleh"
 "ahh ma ma ma ma ma MA!"

What is wrong with me?

How About Sleeping For A Change?

This is a rant.
There will be no pictures, because this post doesn't deserve it.

For the past 3 nights Jackson has woken up at about 4 am screaming, and he wont go to bed till about 10 or 11 pm.
And to top it off he's decided he's going to boycott his naps during the day.


Yesterday was especially terrible because the night before I worked till midnight
Then had to finish my homework.
Then woke up at 4 to a screaming child.
Then was at school from 7:45am-6:15 pm
Then worked from 6:45pm-10pm
Then finally got my son down at 11pm
Then woke up again at 4 to a screaming baby.


And what's funny is whenever it happens to come up and I tell people how sucky my child is at sleeping,
they feel the need to tell me how their perfect angel baby has been sleeping through the night at about a month old.

Uh kinda makes me want to throw a rock at you.

Mom Hulk

I don't know what makes women want to say that kind of stuff to an already tired and EXHAUSTED mother, but I guess you gotta show off the goods when you can.

I think it's time for my husband to take me on a date.
Hint Hint.
