DON'T DO IT!!!!! STAY AWAY FROM STRAWS LADIES!!!!

Chimney Rock, North Carolina
With my bookbag.
Back in June I bought this beautiful Vera Bradley Bookbag so I could throw in my camera case and some purse stuff and then just hit the road. 

{Remember Superdad bought me an amazing camera for my 40th birthday in May and I LOVE taking pictures with it.}

But it was difficult lagging around a purse, camera bag while chasing two kids so a bookbag was the perfect idea. 

I love VB stuff and have a few of her bags and cosmetic bags and the such.  They are fun prints and go with anything.  So, ummmm, while buying this beautiful VB bookbag I noticed they had a cup w/straw that matched my bag and it was on SALE!

BONUS!!!!

I bought it and have been using it for my water.  It's bigger than my regular cup and it has a top so I don't have to worry about it spilling.  Which has been prefect since I've been in bed not feeling well.  The babies will fill it up for me and then bring it back.  They've been the perfect nurses along with my husband, other kids, family and friends.

Don't think me shallow but I have always taken care of my face and still continue using products to take care of my face.  I notice little lines and pores every now and then so I will use whatever product there is to help fade those away.  I think I look pretty damn decent to be 40 and my skin is very healthy.  So, my point and I do have one, last weekend I was drinking from my cup with the straw and happened to pass the mirror in my bedroom.

I STOPPED DEAD IN MY TRACKS!!!

My job is finished here. Stretching the pants.
You are Supermommy!

The leggings.
{I went looking for a picture.}
Ninja Gurl was going on a field trip and the kids were told to dress comfy for hiking so I told her that she needed to wear some pants in her chest of drawers.

I used to fold the clothes and meticulously arrange them in the drawers THEN I realized it was a waste of time because she would destroy it the first time she went looking for clothes.

I could use that time to enjoy a cup of coffee or read a book or even nap or vacuum the house.  Whatever.

So I have no idea what's in the drawers and I am surprised that she finds anything to wear at all!

After she went looking for pants she returned to the kitchen where I was working on breakfast and packing lunches with about five pairs of leggings that she likes.  She put on her favorite ones which and black and white stripes!  Totally adorable but a little small since last winter. 

She really wanted to wear those leggings.  What's a mommy to do? 

I took the leggings and put them on my legs and stretched them out for her just a little bit.

{It was hilarious.}

I gave them back to her and she put them on and they fit just right.

Then she said, “You are Supermommy.”.   I was so proud.  I took a bow in the kitchen.

“My job here is done.”

The things that we do for our children.  It's amazing.  We come up with crazy shit and just do it and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.  But it's life and we live it.

The best way we know how.

Now I have another job and that's stretching leggings for Ninja Gurl to wear because I'm awesome like that.

She can always count on me to help fix whatever problem that may arise because I am Supermommy.

I suck at this.

Michelle Lee @The Adventures of Supermom

I suck at being a good patient.  I suck at asking for help.  I suck at relaxing.  I suck at being in pain.  I just suck.  I hurt myself again somehow.  I was getting better.  I was being rolfed once a week.  I had a private yoga session with the best yoga women in town.  I was working on a plan.  I was feeling better.  It was nice.

I still had limitations and wasn't able to do many things all at once.  I was taking Motrin when I needed it and I was feeling better pain wise.

Then all of a sudden it became worse again.  Over a week ago I started feeling really rough, it was the day my husband was going out of town for the night.  Putting one foot in front of the other to walk was extremely difficult.  I sucked it up and dealt with it the best way possible.  I didn't want him to miss his show so I didn't say anything.  I am the one who'd remove a bullet with a knife.  I think that's something he once said about me in a guest post.

So after I collected the two kids from school.  {My son was gone camping with scouts so I had ZERO help.  Sniff sniff.}

I took the babies to the store and we picked up junk food and two movies along with some Bayer for back pain for me.  All I wanted to do was curl up in the fetal position and cry but I didn't.  I made a lovely dinner for us, set up snacks in the living room and we watched both Night at the Museum movies.  {In memory of Robin Williams.}
