Working out just fine.

Totally not what you think...

I'm not working out like I should be since I'm on this "diet" that I always happen to decide to start tomorrow.

What I'm talking about is my "nanny" cousin being here watching the kids for me while I'm at work. Such a relief.


She totally keeps them entertained. The place stays clean and she gives them all the attention that I can't at the time.
I had asked her if she gets woken up early in the morning after I've gone to work because of the kids and she said that she work up early because she was scared cause they were so quiet.
I told her: yeah, well, they know not to make noise in the mornings or when someone is sleeping (like when I take my daily naps). They pretty much wake up, close the doors and keep to themselves.

My kids are really very good. Dom will make breakfast for them or they will just eat cereal. They don't answer the doors or go to the windows for anyone. They know to wake me up if someone knocks. Only when I wake up will they ask to play outside.

Last night, Angel and I RAN to bed after watching "Hell's Kitchen". Now, when I say 'ran' to bed I don't mean for 'nookie'. It was pretty much a race to see who could go to sleep the fastest.

He won.
He's the undefeated reigning champ.

I, on the other hand, tossed and turned and debated about getting on the computer. I knew that if I did then I wouldn't get ANY sleep. I would jump from blog to blog to blog making it harder and harder to pull myself away. I exhibited incredible will power last night. I was hurrying thought my patients so I can get home and continue.
The other shoe always has to fall.

ANYWAY.....totally off topic again.

I was saying how my kids are actually VERY well behaved children. I'm a strict parent. I can't stand to go anywhere and see kids running through the isles or in restaurants...etc. screaming and hollering...ughhh. So annoying. Even though my oldest is 13, I still worry about my kids being abducted from a public place. When we go shopping they have to stay in the same isle with me and in extreme cases..hold onto the basket the whole time.
Paranoid Mama?? Definately. And I will be until the day I die.

I texted my cousin and asked her if the kids were being good and she said yes that they were at the movies and then she was going to take them to the park.


That means that they are behaving well enough to be taken to another place.
YESSSS! (feel free to imagine me moving my fist in a downward motion in celebration)

Before...when the kids were untame....I would get to one location before I was throwing my hands in the air talking about, "That's it!! We ain't nowhere else!! We're going home!!"
And I would take them home.

They learned that if they wanted to go somewhere they couldn't be acting like deranged wild monkeys.

All is right with the world.

(of course it's only been 3 days and we still have a whole summer to get through so...wish us luck)


My cousin Cyndy 'the nanny' just told me that "someone" thought it would be OK to have popcorn for breakfast. I knew EXACTLY who to look at when she said that.


Cyn said...

Ok, Sheila, I finally got this up and running. Thanks bunches!

I am so glad she is such a help. I can totally empathize with the paranoid mom.. I am one to.

This is gonna be a great summer for all of you!

Man I can't wait till my kids are old enough to be quiet while I get my sleep. Right now they are waking up too dang early.

And who really eats popcorn for breakfast. Weirdo. ;)

Unless it's kettle corn, in which case, pass the bowl!
