I love our playgroup…we meet every thursday and we have been together for almost 3 years? I think. This week Janelle and Tania put on a little harvest party with yummy sugary foods, coloring, and face painting. All the kids were dressed up too! It was fun! (we missed you monica and emily!)

I can’t even believe my baby is already one. This time it went by so fast! I am sad that he is no longer the sweet content little cuddly chubby baby anymore, but I am so excited to watch him grow and attempt new things! He is still a sweet boy. I love you Silas and Happy Birthday!!!

After I returned from my walk to the park this morning I watched as some random man stole an empty detergent bottle, an old towel, and a dirty diaper from my garbage can! He saw me standing there in my driveway watching him and he tipped his hat at me and wished me a good afternoon. I said thanks and ran inside with my boys!

I realized the other day that Asher needs more structure in his day to keep him out of trouble. It is hard for me to enforce this idea though. It is so much easier to put a movie on when I need to get things done. A couple ideas I think I am going to try is room time, giving him a craft to do, having him help me with my chores (which is going to end up giving me more work) oh well. I need to start including him in more of what I do. He is defiantly old enough to give responsibility to!  Sometimes I just feel like I am never being a good enough mom to him. I hate it at the end of the day when I am lying in bed thinking about the day and what I should have done differently and how i could have been kinder to him or taken an opportunity to teach him.  I am glad I feel this way b/c it does make me try harder and reevaluate my habits. I just want him to be the best little boy he can be and i just want to be the best mom I have the ability to be…is that too much to ask for? 🙂 

Speaking of crafts, Asher made these pumpkins this morning. It is our family! I thought that was sweet of him to make each of us a pumpkin! 

pumpkins and a corn maze!
