In other news.. This week is Mehkaelie's class field trip to the Oklahoma City Zoo. I was absolutely in tears a few weeks ago when we were discussing field trips coming up. The schools policy the last few years has been that no parent that comes as a sponsor is allowed to bring younger siblings (or anyone not enrolled in the class) on the field trip.. The mentality being that if you're paying attention to a toddler your focus isn't on the group you're there to supervise. While I understand and yes, even agree, it was extremely frustrating to think I wouldn't be allowed to go. I've gone to every field trip every year with both kids and was devastated to think I wouldn't be allowed to go this year because I had Haevyn and no one to watch her. As luck would have it, though, they have now revised the rules! Now as long as you sign up you're allowed to come and stay with the group your child is in, not as a sponsor! So, Haevyn and I are zoo bound with Mehkaelie and her class this Thursday! I'm so excited about going .. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that we're getting out of the house to go somewhere other than Walmart! Hah!
Cole's class field trip is next month and they're going to the science museum!! I absolutely cannot miss that! I think that's going to be a blast, I hope they have the same rules for it as they are doing for this one, otherwise I may just have to talk to the teacher and explain I am going to plan a trip that day as well and perhaps follow them around like a crazy person with a stroller. No biggie.

We'll call this exhibit A.
Well after all of this I'm officially throwing in the binky towel. I didn't initially want her to have one at all so I suppose this is some cosmic way of letting me have my way, even if I did try to change my mind. So ... I'll be grateful later. Moving on.

My sweet new baby girl is currently dozing off at the breast while my other two not-so-new-anymore babies are sleeping soundly awaiting morning so that they can tear into their Easter baskets and probably start a fight over who's eggs have the best goodies. I haven't been to sleep yet and I know tomorrow will arrive and I'll kick myself, but sitting here in bed, propped up on pillows, watching my baby and thinking about my other two beautiful children I can't help but be reminded of how lucky I am. Things get hard from time to time, sometimes they down right suck..but knowing I have three amazing children that love me and that I love more than anything gives me the strength to get through whatever life throws at me.
Alright, we can end the sappy moment now. I should get to bed anyhow. I'll have a fight to referee first thing in the morning after all.
