Wow so much to tell you ...so much is going on! We visited the house yesterday evening and I am sooooo in love with it....People always told me that you know you are in "THE" house when you walk in and you can envision your family there. I definitely can...I saw the kids running in the yard...I saw BBQ's being had on our deck...pool parties...and just a comfort of being home. Now as I mentioned it is far up in our budget and if it were any other house we would not have even considered it...but it is everything we wanted...perfect size, perfect location, perfect everything..The only thing it doesn't have and would be the one thing on our "CON" list is central air...although the bi-energy heating system is already installed and all the duct work is done so it really wouldn't be that much to add it on. It has a pool for the time being that we can use to cool off if we need. I am so excited and so nervous and so stressed at the same time..so many emotions... Mike and I have a lot of discussing to do!
Next on a not so hot note..I watched Oprah today...the show was about vegan-ism..they showed how they slaughter the cows in the meat industry...and keep in mind it was one of the best meat factories in the country...they didn't dare venture into the disgusting ones...nor would they be allowed I am sure. It has made me want to be what they called Vegan-ish..A complete vegan doesn't eat anything that comes from animals...which includes, milk , eggs, cheese, butter..ect....I would say that those kind of things don't hurt the animals...at least not that I know of..so I think I am leaning more towards a vegetarian type of thing. Its scary when you actually stop and look to see where your food comes from...very very scary...
Next is my decision to open up my daycare...I have going back and forth with this idea for years now and Mike and I have decided that June 1st of 2012 we will open the doors officially! I think it is so important to make sure our children are well cared for. Most parents do not have the luxury of being stay at home parents, and I find it the most rewarding and privileged opportunity to make sure their children are well taken care of while they are away at work. We hear so many horror stories of daycares and daycare centers, providers that do it solely for the money, take in as many kids as legally possible and sometimes more than the legal limit just to make tons of money...My daycare will not be like that. To begin with I will not take more than 3 children to make sure that each one is cared for properly and has enough one on one interaction. Secondly all children in my care will be treated like my own children and how I would want my own children to be cared for. I have been graced with a gift of caring for children and could not think of a better occupation for me. I will be able to provide for my family and love what I do, isn't that everyone's dream?
In one of my previous posts ( Its all about the Benjamins) I spoke about a plush bear doll from Disney that I really want to get for my son's first birthday. Well I got word that they would be in stock today the 6th and I should check online at midnight to see if the site was updated....So last night with toothpicks in my eyelids I stayed up until midnight...after refreshing a hundred times, I decided to read the posting again....oh dear lord...it was midnight Pacific!! Which meant 3 AM my time....so like a good mommy I set my alarm for 2:55 AM...I swear it felt like I had slept for 5 minutes and the alarm was going off....I jumped out of bed ran to the computer and refreshed.........I am happy to say my son will be getting a Special Agent OSO plush bear for his birthday!! :) I cant wait to see his face!
