Need Substitutes so I can Diet...Any Suggestions?

Here are some reasons why I can't go on a diet. Feel free to give ideas on how to substitute my favorite foods.

1. BIG MAC: who can't resist twoallbeefpattiesspecialsaucelettucecheesepickleonasesameseedbun? And a large Diet Coke--pretty ironic huh?
2. DOUBLE STUFFED OREO'S: ice cold mik and an oreo cookie--they forever go together--COME ON--it's a classic combination.
3. CAKE: usually around birthdays or special events--I have to be a good mom and not let Aidan and Abbey's leftovers go to waist.
4. BOLOGNA SANDWICHES: I will use low fat bologna sometimes but it just doesn't compare.

My pretty girl...

I was putting pony tails in Abbee D's hair on Friday. I concentrated so hard to get them to look good. I was talking to her about what a pretty girl she would be and didn't realize she was making this face until after I said it....

My Little Man

Saturday night, Aaron was Baptized. It was great! We were blessed with all our friends and family were there which made the 5:30 service at Crossroads PACKED. Aunt Megzy's sang "Godspeed" by the Dixie Chicks for my little man and she was AWESOME. I would like to post it but I'm sure she would kill me. We also had the best cake, of course made by Aunt Shawnie! Seriously---it was THE best cake I have EVER had---Here are a few pictures.

My Aidee Bug

Of course all of you know Aidan is my oldest. Is it bad to say that I miss the time we had alone before Abbey and Aaron? I do love my others just as much. (I have a tatoo that says Aidee bug on it--Do I need to get 2 more now?) Aidan is getting big so fast. He actually will get Abbey breakfast in the morning (poptart or cereal bar) put a movie in for both of them and sit with her just so I can get an extra 15-20 minutes extra sleep in the morning. He doesn't know I know he takes good care of his little sister. The other day he was getting snacks and it was the last one and he told her "Don't worry Abbey, Daddy and I are going to make sure we buy you more of these snacks when we go grocery shopping."
I really need to start taking time to do special things w/ each of my kids alone.

My Secret Night Life.....A Circus Act

My life at night is compared to that of a Clown Car--

A never ending line of fun things going on in my life at night.

10:00pm I finally get Aaron to sleep and in bed-settled (with bumper pads).

10:45pm I hunker down to sleep myself

12:15am Aidan wanders into my room, and tells me he can't sleep. I tell him then to just lay in bed and not to wake his brother up.

1:00am Aaron wakes up for his Midnight feeding-yeah-he was an hour late w/ it. He did go back to sleep in his crib-YEAH

2:15am Abbey wakes up, turns her light on-yep she can reach it now because I moved her furniture around. She immediately proclaims that she wants water. I tell her OK--if she is a good girl, I will give her water in the morning. (I do realize that this will probably only work for a few more months until she starts figuring out what I said.)

5:30am Aaron wakes once again for ANOTHER bottle. He was on the other side of the bed but not banging his head on the rails. Dan did help out by warming his bottle.
6:45am Aaron finally goes back to sleep.
7:45am Aidan and Abbey get up.
8:15am Aaron finally wakes up.

And that folks is a night in the life of my Circus.

Suggestions anyone??

Now that Aaron is on the move rolling around every where, does anyone have any suggestions about sleeping? He rolls over constantly and wakes up, bumps his head on the side of the crib because bumper pads are a no, no. He then starts crying, I run to his aid because I don't wantAidan to wake up and bring him in bed w/ me. YES=me- the one who said they would never let their kids sleep w/ them. He does however, continue rolling around, bumping his head on my headboard, waking up again. The sleep positioner does not work, swaddling does not work. Should I put the bumpers back? Any other suggestions?

How the Hell does Snoop Dog get a show??? I'm sitting here, "working", watching him trying to understand what he is saying while he shoves food down his throat.

I know--it's because of idiots like me watching it.

Changing my point of view--a little anyway-

About 10 months ago, I was watching Dr. Phil--Yes, I like watching him--. Anyway, the subject was about stay at home mom's versus working mom's. The stay at home mom said that working mothers do so because it is a way out of raising their kids,they are selfish, and she said some pretty rotten thing. Being a working mother at the time-I was screaming at the TV yelling back saying that was not true --yada yada yada. I actually thought i was going to have a heart attack because I was so angry.

Now that I work part time from home, I can see why that a SAHM would say some of that. IT IS HARD WORK! Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought it would be this hard. I love it! But it IS hard. I have NOTHING against working mothers. It is a choice and there is nothing wrong with it at all. I fully support anyone who makes a decision to stay at home or work.

On the Go..

OK--Aidan and Abbey were pretty easy at 5 months, once they were able to sit, they sat in one place and played, never really rolled all that much.

Baby #3--OMG--he rolls everywhere! I put Aaron on his back on the floor in the living room and he ends up 12 feet away. Not even 5 months yet and he is mobile. HELP. I thought things were getting easier but I think #3 is going to give me a run for my money. Maybe it will burn off some calories chasing him around.

I want romance!! It doesn't have to be a nooner at the Sybiras. But come one. A stinkin' crappy candle lit on the dresser would do it just fine w/ the ole' alarm clock radio playin in the back ground. Boy do I sound like W.T. or what??
