Conversation Starters

It takes less than 10 minutes to get from Aurora Christian School (my kids school) back to my house. In that short amount of time, the two short people I gave birth to manage to keep me entertained and a little confused everyday. Those two short people always have something to talk about, although I willing to admit that half the time I have no idea how these conversations get started or where they will end up. On the way home from school the other day the following conversation was had:

Jada: Momma do you know something?

Me: Yeah Jada, mommy knows a lot of things…

Jada: Did you know that someone came up with words?

Me: Ummmmm…..

Jada: Like bean and street and a lot of other words. Did you know that momma?

Me: Ok, sure….

Jason: No Jada I’m mad!

Me: Wait, what? Mookie why are u mad?

Jada: Mom is 20 a grownup number?

Me: I have no idea what that means, where did that even come from?

Jada: Is 20 a number where you become a grownup?

Me: Ummmm, yes?

Jada: If I turn 20 do I get to be a grownup?

Me: Sure you are….

Jason: I mad mommy, cause Jada did it…

Me: What did Jada do?

Jada: Momma I did not do anything!

Me: I know Jada….

Jason: No it’s my turn, she did do it!

Me: Your turn for what?  I’m so confused……yes we are home….EVERYBODY OUT, IT’S NAP TIME!

Jason: Awww man, I no wanna take a nap! (said while he is trying to strap himself back into his car seat so he does not have to go inside)

Me: Boy if you don’t get out…

Jason: I sorry mama, I get out, I no wanna take a nap!

Jada: Momma did you know….

Me: Quiet, no more question, get in the house!

(Picture the two short people stomping into the house, mad because they now have to go take naps!)


Breaking Up

Sometimes you have to let things go. Some things are just not that good for you. They hurt you and make you feel bad about yourself, when all you have been doing is trying your very best. Giving it your all, and for what? For it to turn around and make a mockery of all your hard work? Your sweat, and tears? The fact that you have given up all those things that you love in order to make it happy, and you get nothing in return, except hurt feelings and frustration. (Breaking up is so hard to do!)

So today, I did it. I officially broke up with my scale. I am no longer gonna let that piece of metal dictate my life. I tried to break up with it last week but I got ahead of myself and jumped up on that bad boy knowing I was gonna see the changes that I had been waiting for, and got my feelings hurt! I had been working so hard and I wanted to see my results reflected on that scale. (Yeah, that so did not happen). I was tempted to get on that scale again today, but I had made myself a promise that I was not going to let that scale diminish all the hard work I had been doing. So I gave it the one finger salute and marched myself past it. I will keep working out no matter how frustrated I get,  and no matter how hard this road seems. I see a light at the end of the tunnel and I will keep pushing past my insecurities to get there!
