SewFatty’s Life Goals for 2015

Normally, I don’t make any New Years Resolutions. For the simple fact, that if I fail within days. That  feeling of failure is no fun. However, I do like to set goals. They are self accomplishments that I want to do within the year. Not sure if, that fits in as a resolution or what. For some reason I find goals different then a resolution 🙂 

My goals this year, is to be the Best Father and Mother to our munchkins. My hubby will be gone almost the entire year. Which means, I will be mom and dad. I’m praying for strength throughout this year. I will need it.

Secondly, just continuing to give my munchkins the healthiest foods. Stonyfield is a product that is , full of protein and vitamins for my kids. I don’t feel bad giving them more then one yogurt at a time. I want them to see that being healthy, fit is such an important thing. I want them to grow up having a healthy mentality. Does that make sense ? I have also have fitness goals. That, I will accomplish and i’m super excited to get back in the gym and do work. 

 I want to enjoy the small moments with family. Sometimes, we caught up with social media and our phones that we tend to forget to live in the moment. I want to soak up all those moments. For they will grow up and have their own lives to live. 

Lastly, I want to get closer to GOD. I was raised catholic and soon after my parents became born again Christian’s. God has always been a part of my life. I love him. Therefore, I want to know him better by reading the bible more and just becoming a better Christian? not sure, if that makes sense. It’s like when someone asks you something about the bible and you know there is a verse in the bible about that. However, you don’t know where its at. (yes, its easy to google) I don’t want to do that. I want to be able to respond back with “Yes it’s in so, and so book/verse”.

God Loves is Unconditional.

Dishes have been stacked for the last few days, loads of laundry need to be washed. The house has been upside down, this is just a small glimpse of what my house has looked like for the last past few days.

It’s been so crazy hectic, these past few weeks; days. I’ve had a house full of sick munchkins including hubby and myself.
Late nights have been a daily ritual for me. Running on 2-3 hours of sleep. Trying to catch up on all chores.

Any who, I don’t want to bore you, rather share my experience of what GOD put in my heart today.

As I was cleaning the kitchen his afternoon. Little Edward kept on taking everything out of the cabinets, he drop orange juice on the floor. Everything he could get his hands on, he was doing. I would put something away and he would go right back to taking it out. (l know what you’re thinking. “He is kid, let him be”) — but let me tell you.. He then took it upon his little self to grab my cupcake sprinkles from the kitchen
cubers and starts eating them. A handful of them. He decided to toss them all over the carpet. Do you have a visual yet ? I just walked away and massaged my head for a bit. I was frustrated at this point. At this very moment, I felt God was telling me “how do you think I feel when you disobey me?” Yet even then “I still love you, unconditionally”. Tears came falling down my cheeks, it was God’s way of telling me. Relax. Breathe.

Moral of the story is our chorus are NEVER-ENDING. SUCK IT UP. Hehe.. just kidding. In all seriousness though. No matter what our kids do, we will always love them unconditionally. Gods love for us, is also unconditional.
He loves us when we’re throwing tantrums, when we make the same mistakes over and over. I want you to know that GOD loves you, no matter what you’re going through no matter how you’re acting.

Hope my story helps you today.
God’s love is unfailing, unconditional. Remember that.

My little chicken nugget.

My Personal Tips for a New or Expecting First Time Parents. #tommeetippee

It feels like just a few months ago, I was having my little Edward. He is now, 20 months old yet it feels so fresh in my mind still. He was my happy surprise baby, we were not trying at all to get pregnant. God already knew what he had in store for us. Super excited, we were to add another baby to our little family. I just wasn’t sure,  how my life would be with my little Ashton and Edward together they are 16 months apart. Was I going to catch a break? Was I going to get enough sleep? All these questions would run through my head. Three kids later, and i’m still learning as I go. However, I do have some tips to share with you. 

1. DONT try to be Super Woman/Dad – We are parents and we want to do it all, (Clean, laundry, cook, shower, bake cookies)  God gave us that will, but you will burn yourself out and not be happy. (Trust, I’ve done it). Take it one day at time. If you see that your dishes are piling up, don’t sweat it. As long as you’re still able to walk in there, you should be fine. lol 🙂 in all honesty though chorus are never-ending. 

 2. Sleep when baby Sleeps – The nurses at the hospital and my mother would tell me this. I of course, didn’t listen and like I said in tip 1. You will burn yourself. Your baby needs you to be 100% as well as your spouse. Have you all ever heard of that saying? “If mama ain’t happy ain’t nobody happy”? I live by that moto, its so true. So rest, please rest. You need it. 

3. Help Please – Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Whether its a close friend coming over to do your laundry or you’re needing to take a quick shower and need to call your mother-in-law over. Don’t feel  bad for asking or getting help. More then likely they know how you are feeling without you saying anything. So, just embrace it and take advantage of it. 

4. Baby Necessities – Having the right baby essentials is key. I tried so many bottles, before finding the right one. Tommee Tippee bottles are, our go to bottles and sippys. If you’re breastfeeding then you may love their breast pump, or if bottle feeding you for sure will love their “Baby Keurig and Bottles“. The baby keurig is pretty amazing for first time parents, it makes baby bottles for you, you really can’t screw it up. Bottles are small and easy to hold, and have a soft nipple. Overall making them the best bottle to date for us. 

5. Enjoy the moments – “The days are long but the years are short” enjoy every single moment with them. Cherish these moments for once they are older, they will be gone doing their own thing. So enjoy them. Don’t sweat the small stuff.
