After a long day that ended in mostly frowns I read my friend Rebecca's post. She is an awesome teacher, wife, and friend. Unfortunately this is our only chance in this life to raise our children…I can't do it again and my goal it to be happy with the results and NOT want to have a do over.
"If I had my child to raise all over again,
I'd BUILD self-esteem first, and the HOUSE LATER.
I'd FINGERPAINT MORE, and POINT the finger LESS
I would do LESS CORRECTING and more CONNECTING.
I'd take my eyes OFF my watch, and WATCH with my eyes.
I'd take more HIKES and fly more KITES
I'd stop PLAYING SERIOUS, and SERIOUSLY PLAY
I would RUN through more fields and GAZE at more stars
I'd do more HUGGING and less tugging."

I wasn't lazy with the putting pictures on the computer from the camera I would have something to actually post about.
I wasn't tired and wasn't as caught up in reading everybody's posts I would post something of significance.
I wasn't to busy I would do both of those things listed about.
My kitchen wasn't so stinking small I would want to cook (hopefully because I do like to cook, its just I only have ONE small piece of counter top)
My laundry room wasn't in my kitchen I would
My house could stay clean for a whole 24 hours I would be ecstatic
I was I was a SUPER MOM~ I would be able to do all of the above, alas I am just Ashley and imperfect, and always going to be imperfect, I will try and I will try my hardest and when my hardest isn't enough I don't want to be judged because that is the only thing that we are asked to do, DO OUR BEST.

I have been really busy lately. Mostly crazy things that are happening to Derek's Car. It runs one day and won't start the next. Then we got it fixed and the next day Derek was in an accident (don't worry no one was hurt). A few days before that Logan came to visit us(or that is what we would like to think)! He is here for a couple weeks then goes back to school. I have had a car off and on for a few weeks....it is annoying but we are saving money cause I can't go to the store...but we also don't have very much food. OH WELL YOU LIVE AND LEARN...but no worries we do have a third car and my sister uses it for the summer which is over in like a week or so, so it will be great to have a more dependable car again....
I am tired :) Life is exhausting sometimes

9:30 am: KENZIE JUST WOKE UP!!! WOW what a start to a great day!
10:45 am: Finish eating eggs, toast and jam for breakfast, put the first cloth diaper on, get dressed, leave to go run errands (we had to take some of the cloth diapers back from the store downtown.)
11:15 am: Look in the rear view mirror on the car and see EGG CHUNKS FLYING OUT OF KENZIE'S MOUTH as she is barfing everywhere, find a place to pull over and assess the damage.
11:16am: WOW it is worse than I thought and smells horrific-I almost barf.
11:16:30seconds am: Start using wipes to clean up the best I can. Questioning WHY DID SHE BARF????
11:17 am: While cleaning up I realized that ALL of the chunks of eggs were not chewed, when she at them, they slide right down.
11:18 am: Came to a few conclusions: 1st: Kenzie ate more eggs than I thought she did (HAHA) 2nd: Kenzie does NOT like chunks in her throat...so she gagged herself (this isn't the first time) until she barfed.
11:20 am: Stripped her clothes, of course DID NOT have an extra set, wiped the seat of best I could, and went to the diaper store.
12:00 (noon): Arrived at walmart to by a new outfit, I wouldn't usually do this, but I had A TON of errands to run and I could not go home.
12:00-12:15pm: Mom's, dad's, grandma's, kids, EVERYONE looking at me, some would say...WOW that is the perfect outfit, some would say ADORABLE, some would say, SO CUTE. Kenzie was in her cloth diaper, shoes, and a hair tie with a bow. Now, I am sure that these people thought that I would PURPOSELY dress my little girl in NOTHING to go shopping. I felt like super white trash. Yes I know it looked like that on purpose (especially) with the bow, but it wasn't.
12:45 pm: Finally got to my mom's house, gave Kenzie a bath, she pooped in her cloth diaper for the first time...interesting...and went to the mall.
3:00pm: Pooped again in her cloth diaper...even more interesting....but I SURVIVED!!!!!
Now I am home, thinking about the day. Don't get me wrong. I got A TON DONE that I needed too. Now to survive the rest of the night...and if I do...I will say that cloth diapers were successful for the first day.
