Happy *Heart* Day!!

Although mine is FAR from happy. Do you ever have those moments when you feel like the worst mom in the WORLD. Seriously...I don't know what to do with my kids sometimes. They don't LISTEN. At all. To me. Period. And it drives me nuts. Because by the 10th time I've asked them to do something I'm YELLING...and I hate yelling...and I don't want them to grow up and only remembering that their mom yelled all the time. But ya the 10th time..I'm tired of asking them to do something. Any ideas? PLEASE...I welcome them all. :)

And to recap the last week because I've been a total slacker...Auston turned 6 on the 7th. We had his very first ever birthday party on the 10th. It was FUN. At the roller skating rink and it was pirate themed. Very fun and very cool. Here is the birthday boy in all his pirate-ness. I'm really glad that we had a party for him. He was able to invite 7 friends (I wanted to keep it under 10 including my own). All the kindergartners had a blast!

Oh oh oh!! Before I forget...I got my March kit for Sweet Pea Scraps!!'s SO cool. I have to admit I was a little worried when I saw the preview picture but in real life it's amazing! Those girls can sure through together an awesome assortment of goodies!!

And my layout from Random Chaos. You guys NEED to check it out. Super fun and I'm always looking for someone to give me direction to step outside my comfort zone. I'm NOT fond of my layout because I think the green is SO green. But the story is adorable. Auston told me one day that "even when I'm a grown up I'll still be your baby...and when I'm a teenager I'll still cuddle." Ahhhhh...doesn't that just melt your heart? (Yeah until I tell him 10 times to do something...then I forget that aahhhhh moment!!)

Mathew has his first counseling apointment this afternoon. I'm REALLY hoping that this will work for him. He is terribly angry...and I'm not sure why but it really affects him and He, for some reason, despises me. Another notch for the worst mom in the world award! He is so mean and nasty to me and so mouthy. The other day I grabbed him and gave him a big hug and he punched me in the jaw. What do you do about something like that? And I KNOW this isn't my Mathew...there is something going on with him that he needs to get sorted out. So I'm really hoping and praying that this counselor can break through and help him. I know *I* need that!! Shawn and I met with her 2 weeks ago and we both really liked her and felt very comfortable. See...I KNOW he has the potential to be my 'old' Mathew...because the one time he saw the school counselor he was a different a huge weight had been lifted from his shoulders. *sigh* I want that kid back so much. Seriously...I think it all stems from me. I'm totally having a pity party right just let me. :)

Anyway...have a Happy *Heart* Day and I hope all your wishes come true!!

Ohhhhhhhh Jenn! I'm sending you BIG, HUGE, GIGANTIC "Mommy" hugs this morning!!! I too am a "yelling" Mom and I hate it. I just wish my DS would "listen and do" too! Hope everything goes well with the counselor.. sometimes you just need to talk to someone "outside"! Sending lots of hugs....

I feel your pain so much!!! I am told it gets better as they grow up and that boys will be so sweet to their moms later in life. I just hope I am going to live long enough to see that happening!!!
Keeping my fingers crossed for the counselor appointment.
