Nerd !!

It was all I could do to allow this child to walk out of the house in this outfit. It was crazy outfit day at school. What you don't see in the pic is she had on grey leggings under those shorts, non-matching socks and her Uggs.  She was so very proud of her nerdy outfit.  I have to admit that face to so stinking cute.

Poor Walker fell hard in the shower the other night. I hated to have to use it as a life lesson but I have said OVER AND OVER again to not jump in the shower. Poor guy had a big ole goose egg.
He is totally fine but he scared me to death.

LONGEST 5 mins of my life...

 Saturday we were at the mall with some friends that were visiting from out of town.  We met them in the food court for a little lunch . As always during the meal Walker had to go to the bathroom. We had a table close to the carousel as well as a view of the bathrooms. I let Walker go solo ( he keeps saying that boys should not go into girls restrooms ), I watched him go in. A few minutes went by he had not returned, so I thought he was finishing his business. But I headed over the the bathroom and yelled him name, NO RESPONSE, I asked a teenage boy to go in and call out his name still NO RESPONSE.  PANIC started to set in... I even went into the men's restroom to see if he would answer STILL NO RESPONSE. At this point I felt like someone was stabbing a knife in my stomach. I ran back to the table to ask our friends for help.  I told Lauren to stay put just in case he made his way back. 3 of us started to look for him. My mind was racing and going places I don't even want to talk about.  Out of the corner of my eye I saw a small group of people in front of Starbucks ( which was away from our table).  I walked that way and there was my sweet boy talking to a security guard. He actually did what he was taught to do.. As soon as I saw him I started crying which of course made him cry.  He hugs me and says, " Mommy I so sorry you lost me."  Lol.. 

He told me later that when he walked out of the bathroom he went the wrong way.  He said he was confused and got a little scared. But I told him that he did exactly what he was suppose to do.  It will be a very long time before he will go to the bathroom solo again.

My Loves...

I absolutely love this picture of Lauren and Walker. They really do love each other so much. Even though they don't show it all the time. Just looking at this makes me smile.

Finally 70lbs

Lauren was diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease 2 years ago. Basically she has no thyroid and will probably always be tall and thin her whole life ( sickening I know). Today was our 6 month check-up. They look at her weight, height, check her hormone levels etc...  Well today she has officially hit 70 lbs ( 70lbs 2 oz to be exact)  which for her is huge. Not sure why that number is a big one for her but she was so EXCITED.  Today she said something that really stuck with me. " Mom, having thyroid issues makes me part of who I am. Taking a pill everyday kind of stinks but it makes me feel better. Its just a part of my life.".  Love her attitude. The doctor said shes in great health and she will see us again in 6 months.

I am sure that you all have been checking in daily to see what is going on in the Wheeley House.  Well the list goes on and on .. will update you later on our exciting lives ( if only it really was ).  We are full swing into summer and I am ready for the kids to go back to school today. We still have 4 more weeks left and we all may not make it.   More to come later....

Spanking on Lebanon

Last week the kids fighting was crazy. It was constant and got louder and louder every waking minute. We were headed back from who knows where.  I look in my rear view mirror to see toys flying , kids SCREAMING ( you get the picture). I came to a complete stop on a major road, at this point the car became very quiet. I jumped out of the car went and pulled both kids out on the sidewalk. To which I spanked  them. Yes I did.. right on broad daylight on a major road. Lauren is yelling Mommy people will see you and you could go to jail. Well take me then because I am done with the fighting. Walker of course is yelling dont beat me I love you sooooo much Mommy. I sooo sooo sorry. ( Notice Lauren offers no apologies just keeps saying I could go to jail).  About the time that Lauren spoke up a car drove by and honked while giving me a thumbs up. Other Mothers know exactly what I am going thru at this point in the summer.  We have 4 weeks left.

Lord hear my Prayer -- please help me not kill my children.  If you are willing please help me in the patience department. It is extremely low and could use some assistance. Amen !!
