First Couple of Days in School....

I am as many of you know enrolled in Nursing School full time. I also let you know that I have four kids to manage as well on my own while my husband works his second job so that I don't have to work. I have no idea how hard this is going to be but as of today I have a good idea. I got 16 books for the first three months and all I can say is WOW!!! We were informed that we will be getting more books as time goes on. I know that this will be hard and very time consuming. A lot of the ideas I had about nursing were not well informed but close. I now know why you charge a great deal for this education its not because you get an education but you are also paying for the experience that goes along with the education. I can say that finally I understand why nurses get paid the salary they do. It takes a lot to get that license and I am looking forward to the process and the experience that goes with it.

Tea Party for mom2

Today was a good day. I got to go and have a tea party with my daughter Taylor at school. Now this wasnt exactly like the ones we have at home. They actually had tea and not water and they served fruit, cake and cookies. This was a special treat from Taylor. I got to enjoy sometime with her at school. I got to meet other parents and talked to her teachers. It amazes me to what trouble that some teachers go through and how much of their own money is spent to help the kids do special things. I know that this could not have been cheap. I appreciate all the trouble that they went through to make us feel special. Thank you to all you teachers out there.

Mommy the greatest Joy Ever!

Before I was a Mom,
I never tripped over toys
or forgot words to a lullaby.
I didn't worry whether or not
my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunizations.

Before I was a Mom,
I had never been puked on.
Pooped on.
Chewed on.
Peed on.
I had complete control of my mind
and my thoughts.
I slept all night.

Before I was a Mom,
I never held down a screaming child
so doctors could do tests.
Or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night
watching a baby sleep.

Before I was a Mom,
I never held a sleeping baby just because
I didn't want to put her down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces
when I couldn't stop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small
could affect my life so much.
I never knew that I could love someone so much.
I never knew I would love being a Mom.

Before I was a Mom,
I didn't know the feeling of
having my heart outside my body..
I didn't know how special it could feel
to feed a hungry baby.
I didn't know that bond
between a mother and her child.
I didn't know that something so small
could make me feel so important and happy.

Before I was a Mom,
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night
every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
I had never known the warmth,
the joy,
the love,
the heartache,
the wonderment
or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much,
before I was a Mom
