My Jon and Kate obsession

So today is the day I have waited for all week (wow to actually read that written out is sad). The new People with Kate Gosselin on the cover is out. I am slightly obsessed with this show. I guess I could say this family. My tiny obsession began in the begining when I saw her house with 8 kids. It was clean and organized. WTF?!?! I knew instantly I could not let M.D. watch it because he would be all like "What do you do all day?" and I would be like "Dude I take care of your kid." he would then say "She takes care of 8 kids, does the laundry, keeps the house picked up, cooks 3 meals a day for 10 people, and looks pretty hot while doing it. You on the other hand do a half a load of laundry a day, throw together a half ass meal or two, pretend to pick up 10 minutes before I get home and you are wearing your PJ's and have bed head." I would then say "I walk and feed the dog to asshole."
Well he finally did watch and to my suprise he thought Kate was a total bitch. Which she is but refer to conversation above and I would probably be a bit bitchy if I did that every day too. So I watch diligently every season and soon I am loving this family. The kids are so precious and Mosey is amazed by them. They have the beautiful vow renewal ceremony in Hawaii and are all in love. They buy this new beautiful big home everything seems just so perfect and then BAM!
Jon is having an affair and now Kate is having an affair and they may split up. What happened to my wholesome American family? All that was right in the world has now been crushed. All my hopes and dreams are gone. Okay dramatic I know but still. I find my self now just as addicted to the horror as I was the love. I think this is a true testament of what a little fame does to a family. M.D. comes home yesterday though and informs me that for each episode they both get $47,000.00. We have now decided to call TLC and inform them we are not busy right now and would be more then happy to allow them to film our dysfunction. Every day in our house is a rise and fall. Filled with horror and love.
Well now I wait for Mosey to wake up so I can throw her in my car and run to the store to get my new People. In my "PJ's" of course!

Happy Mothers Day to me

I hope all of you lovely mom's had a wonderful Mothers Day. I got to spend the day with all my favorite mothers. I am so very blessed to have married into the most amazing family. The best part though is that it is filled with some awesome photographers. So for mothers day we took some great pictures. I think I will just let the pictures fill my blog today.

The war has been waged...

In our household we are huge baseball fans. M.D. played in college and I have grown to love it because of him. He is a die hard Cubs fan and I am a lover of the Mets. Baseball season is usually a very peaceful and fun time in our home but this year we have waged war over a major issue. These morons and there steroid use.
Exhibit A.
Alex Rodriguez

Although very good looking and considered Mr. Baseball I don't feel it excuses him for steroid use. After the initial release of his past failed steroid tests it took him a month to say he may have taken them but didn't know that is what they were. WHAT THE HELL?!?! I don't know to many people that just take what they are given without asking what it is. M.D. said he still has to have the skills regardless of using the drugs or not and so he just be absolved. Great example for children

Exhibit B.

Manny Ramirez

I love Manny. Yesterday though he was suspended for 50 games after testing positive not once (at spring training) but twice (two days ago) for a drug that helps increase testosterone production after steroid use. It is also used for women with fertility problems. He has now come out and said it was used for erectile dysfunction. REALLY?!?! M.D. of course thinks this whole thing is bullshit and Manny is very talented and once again steroids don't help you see the ball to hit it.

I think these men are awful role models for children and I think the situation would be different if they came out and said "Yes I did it, I felt so much pressure to perform better and live up to my hype. It was the wrong decision and I apologize. No one should do what I did." But they don't they just lie. For as much money as all of these men make accountability should be top priority.

I suppose the battle will continue to rage at my home. I am just glad to know my darling David Wright is just talented all on his own. Oh and so just amazingly HOT!! He is what amazing dreams are made of.

Craft junky crack

Okay so let me just start out by how much I love love love my Aunt Pam. She is my dads sister and she and I have so much in common. She is also a lover of all things crafty which my mother is not so it is nice having someone to share it with. Sadly though she lives in Florida so we share ideas by phone and she will be here in June and we plan on going craft store crazy. I  will probably be in a fabric coma. Anyways, her being the amazing person she is I get a box from her yesterday. A HUGE box from her...

Inside were tons of clothes and shoes for Mosey. Which she has clothed my child since she was born and I will never be able to show my full gratitude for that.
There were some pink disney princess boots but I am pretty sure Mosey slept in them. LOL
Well also in side this box were about 100 spools of ribbon. I went into overload. I think I almost passed out from excitement.
Oh the things I will make. I do have one very SMALL issue. My craft "room" is actually my dinning room. I have begun to use the chairs as my basket holders such as drawers on a nice craft table. I also have to have a changing of the guards when I go from sewing to making bows and flip-flops. I thought I would share some pictures (which is a little hard for me) but please beware. I am mortified at its disorganization but damn a girl needs her space. As you will see later in my post I don't have much space of my own anywhere.
Yes I know what you are saying. No, we don't eat alot of quality family meals at that table. M.D. is dear enough not to gripe at all about it. He knows I love doing it and it means he can watch as many baseball games in the evenings as he wants. I still lay down and wish everynight for the magic craft fairy to bring me a magic craft room all of my own.

So this brings me to my last bit of my own space. Mosey began sleeping with us when she was about 6 months old cause I was so tired from getting up with her in the middle of the night and then getting up for work at 4am that after trying a couple of diffrent things I realized she slept best in bed with us. IT WAS ONLY TEMPORARY THOUGH!!!
Fast forward to Mosey being 2 and a half years old and what I am stuck with now.
Oh yes that is my side of the bed as well. We have tried everything to get her in to her own big girl bed but she ends up in ours before morning. I know I did this to my self and you know what I don't regret it for a second. Sometimes when I was working it was some of the only time I got to spend with her. Now I spend tons of time with her. LOL Maybe I will turn her room into my craft room and we can all just be one big happy family in our bed with a nice dinning room downstairs.

I feel like I have been neglecting a child. I can not belive I have not posted in a week. What is wrong with me? In all fairness Mosey has been so sick God love her and I have been working on some new creations lately. Not to mention my mom bought fabric for valencies and I am making them for her. I can not even begin to explain the overwhelming pressure these things are putting on me. Perfection is the only option on this one. Yes my mother scares me and she still has that power to make me feel about the size of a 2 year old when she finds fault.  I am about to go finish this damn project but I felt the need to write on here and show a little independence first. LOL Plus, I have a really funny Mosey story. So last night I was sewing and she said she needed to go potty (she has a whole little set up in the bathroom) so I just said okay and kept sewing. About 1 minute later I hear the potty flush and her start screaming. I walk in the bathroom and her arm is stuck in the hole in the bowl and to top it off she flushed the toilet while it was in there. I almost wet my pants I was laughing so hard. Before you think I am a bad parent I did get her arm out and asses the damage, then I fell over laughing.
