Back from the beach

So we're back from the beach. I love weekend gettaways but they just aren't long enough. We had a great time and spent way too much money:0) Hailee got a ton of stuff. Her daddy just can't resist. She got eyeball spaghetti, glow sticks, stuffed animals, Strange rubber spikey ball things, and much more... There's a store down there called Coconut Kids that has big name clothes in little kid sizes! cute! It was better than seeing them on the internet. They had Roxy for little kids and Lily Pulitzer(not that I can afford a $150 skirt for a 4 year old but they were nice to look at. They had baby Tevas. I picked up a baby pink pair of UGGS for Gianna for the fall. They are too freakin cute! The store next to it had Juicy, Michael Stars,... Stuff thats also a little OUT OF MY PRICE RANGE. The girls were sooo good at the beach! Gianna pretty much played in her pack n play all day under the umbrella and Hailee played with her cousins just where the tide comes in. I'm too nervous there so I couldn't relax at all. Aaron however just lays down and falls asleep right away. So I'm trying to make sure the kids are hydrated and have full bellies and that Hailee isn't getting wiped out by waves and... the list go's on. Then even when Aaron tells me to just lay down and relax I can't because I'm worried he's not watching close enough. I NEED TO RELAX. I think I need a weekend gettaway. I'm do for one. Aaron took a weekend trip to Atlantic City a few months back so I'm in need. Not that I'm keeping points or anything, BUT I AM! So the rest of the time we pigged out and talked and got busy in the bathroom. Did you guys know that sperm can survive up to a week in your vajooj? It can.A friend of mine was tracking her ovulation trying to get pregnant and she and her husband were together 6 days before she ovulated and she got pregnant! Blew me mind.

Hailee started camp on Monday. I was nervous at first just because she's my little sidekick but I'm really enjoying having a little break. She goes Mon-Fri 10am-4pm. For two weeks. She is POOPED when she gets home! Aarons mom's paying for all her grandchildren to go, so she's with her cousins. It's called Beachmont Christian Camp and a lot of people I know have gone there. They do crafts, swim lessons, paddle boats, puppet shows, sports and a bunch of other stuff. Today my sister in law brought my nephew over, he's soooo cute. He'll be one month July 4th. My friend Marissa stopped by too. She said she was going to check out my blog today. Hey Riss, Love you! I miss Marissa Her and I were roomates when I kicked Hailee's dad out of my apartment. We lived together for a while. She's watched Hailee grow up into a little girl. She was my maid of honor in my wedding. Her dad also passed away from a brain tumor before mine did. It was so crazy. We were definitely brought together for a reason! She's Hailee's Godmother and has been there for us through a lot. I luv luv her:0)

So thats what been going on lately. I really need clean the clutter too. The landlord came by today and my house is starting to look like Sanford and Son. Not to mention there was Hailee's hamster sitting by the door and we are not allowed to have ANY kind of pet at ANY time on the premises. He's too nice to say anything though. Maybe he thought my sister in law carries that along with her newborn on outings? I'm not quite sure about that. I do know however that Gianna was crying upstairs but Aaron didn't hear her. Why? Because he's been asleep since five. Yeah baby had a rough day playing Golf in a tournament in the heat! But it was FOR BUSINESS! I cooked dinner, took it upstairs to him and he fell back asleep. I wonder how that feels? What if I cooked dinner, we ate and I said" Why don't you clean up I'm going to bed" Yeah! That would be normal! I couldn't do that though. I know that the kids need baths and they need to be put to bed, I need to get Hailee's camp stuff together, throw in some laundry, do the dishes. Man was I cussing inside tonight the whole time asking God to make me humble:0) Ok, I'm done bitching for real this time! I still love my husband.

Glad you are back and had a good time. I wish we had time to do a girl getaway :(

And it's weird how long the sperm can survive, I didn't know any of that until I was TTC and tracking ovulation. Guess that's how accidents can happen so easily when you only ovulate 1 day a month! And I think they say that the sperm that make the male babies die much quicker but girl baby sperm can live up to week "in the right environment"...if that's true then maybe she's having a girl?!

I'll get in touch w/you about lunch. And "Hi Marissa, if you are reading this!"

Loved hearing about you "getting busy in the bathroom" on your getaway. Your brother was telling me all about your conversation with Meghan about "Poop"; the color, the consistency, etc. What a family we are, ugh? Chad has really learned a lot of "up close and personal" information about his family! Oh well, it's good for him to know all of this stuff.

Yay beachland fantasy you lucky B! I totally sympathize about the not being able to relax thing tho, I'd be the exact way. and speaking of which ain't nuthin like a little bathroom pootie (which is a good thing). Your husband sounds a lot like my husband. They must have gone to the same school or somethin.

I think that it is great what you have been doing to help your husband. Many women these days don't want to sacrifice for their husbands. I know that my husband works very hard to support his family and I know that he goes through things that I could not relate with. It is hard to be the breadwinner and have to come home to a dismantled home. I couldn't do it. Good job on being humble. It is hard but as long as we remember that marriage is a sacrifice of self, we will be able to really enjoy it. Keep up the good work.

Oh and by the way, I went on one of my husbands golf outings (I play also). And they really are more work than play. Especially when they are entertaining clients.

Its funny, when you think about it, you could be out working all day, but after a few weeks of that, you would give anything to be able to spend the day at home with your children, go for a ride, or rest when the kids are napping.
