Why do I LOVE being a mom?

I love being called mommy, I don't think I will ever get tired of hearing it, I am sure through the years it wont be mommy anymore, more like "MOM", so I am going to cherish their sweet little voices calling me mommy.

I love to see their happiness, it always fills me up with great joy when my children are happy. I love to see their excitement, and the smiles on their face, it is very contagious. I could bottle it up.

I love all the moments, the good and even the bad. There will always be bad moments, but oh how the good ones erase the bad. My children know just how to make me laugh and feel better if its been a bad day.

I LOVE being a mother to the most wonderful children in the world. Being a mother is no easy task, but I am so in love with it. I can not ever imagine my life without them. I love them to pieces.

Happy Mothers Day to all the wonderful mothers!

Self Defense

So on Chris's birthday I finally got the nerve to go shooting with him. He just got a new gun the Benelli M2 Tactical Shotgun. Had to get that right for him:) I was always one who was very much against owning guns, especially with young children. He had to convince me for quite sometime to get his very first gun. Anyways, I have yet to shoot that one. Some, or very many may still disagree with having a gun in the home with children, but I have to say that I have never felt safer. There have already been atleast 2 times where, I did not have to use it, but had to take it out for safety reasons, and I felt so much safer having it, then not.

Anyways I was very nervous, we were supposed to shoot the Hk but we went to shoot the shotgun first, I didnt want to even shoot that big ole monster. I told him I was just going to observe. I am glad I tried it, because it really was fun. It was a little scary, and it took me by surprise, the force of this gun, but I would def do it again. It was fun shooting at different things, and I actually hit my targets. I would like to do it again, and if anyone is interested in going out with me, let me know. It would be fun to go with a group. I can definitely say that I am glad that I allowed Chris to get his guns, and I am glad I finally got the strength to go out shooting, so in the case that I ever have to use it, which of course hopefully is NEVER. I will be a little more prepared.

Jumping back on the bandwagon, slacked for so long. So I am back to update you on the "Happenings" in the Delmonico household.

Chris celebrated his big 30th, something he wasn't so enthused about, but 30's are the new 20's, or so he says. Ah, age is just a number. We had a great celebration just the 2 of us, a day alone with no children, and it was nice.

Tyler turned 4 on January 2oth, he celebrated on the 15th with a Spiderman birthday, his
favorite for some reason. He is becoming so intelligent, it amazes me, he will start school in August which makes me happy and nervous at the same time. He has also started gymnastics, and he loves it. I can't wait to sign him up for soccer.

Natalie is now 4 months old, weighing almost 16 lbs 2 ft tall, and the sweetest little girl. She smiles a bunch, and loves to make noises. She loves Tyler and Emily so much, and you can tell because I try so hard to make her laugh, and all they have to do is talk to her, and she just gives them the biggest smile, and her sweet little laugh. She is a very happy and easy baby. We love her more and more each day.

Emily is 2 1/2 now and quite the diva. I worry She is very sweet, but ofcourse being a girl, she has those Very independent, and one tough little girl. She loves to play outside, and is rough and tough, but yet she likes and acts like a little princess, and loves to dress up, and loves it when she gets new outfits. She is a great big sister, and loves Natalie a bunch, sometimes too much:)

All is well, Tyler, Emily, and Natalie, keep us very busy. We love them very much. I hope to continue to keep up with the blog. Enjoy reading about our crazy lives.
