So we are a week into 2012… and not much has changed. I couldn’t wait for 2011 to get over, it seemed like the longest year of my life! We are soooooo close to the end of this deployment. I just wish it would get here already! I keep seeing people making their resolutions and talking about hopes and dreams for this year, honestly, I just can’t do it. I can’t think past our reunion. I just want to be a family this year, plain and simple. I am hoping that we are looking towards going back to the states, but not gonna hold my breath on it happening anytime soon. Really the only thing I want from 2012 is to be a complete family. I want to spend time together and not be a single parent. I want my kids to know what it feels like to have their dad around and I want to remember who my best friend is and what it is like to have his companionship! I really do not think I am asking a lot this year. I would like to lose some weight and I am working on that. But not going to make that a resolution, because then I am bound to fail. If it happens, it happens. If not, well as long as we are all together I will be happy and I will keep working towards it.

Not much else to write about, not much else I think about right now, lol. The kids are doing great. Kinsy is such a big girl right now! Turning 4 has made some kind of difference! She decided that Jack needed his diaper changed tonight. She got a diaper and went to the blanket we use to have him lay down, she told him to lay down (he did) she asked him to lift his legs up to hold his butt up (he did) she took the wet one off and put a fresh one on him and then told him to put his legs down (he also did that) and then she fastened the tabs! It wasn’t exactly straight, but she did a great job! I was really proud of her! I was also amazed at how well Jack listened and followed directions. Lately he has been understanding so much more. I can give him simple directions and he will follow them or I can ask him where something is and he will go look for it. He is getting so big also. I am starting to question if he is ready for a big boy bed. I just don’t know. I don’t know if I question it because maybe I am not ready for it yet. He is my last baby. Once the crib goes down, it is the last we will ever use it. I am not sure I am ready to put it away yet, lol. For now my plan is just to wait for daddy to come home and let this be a decision he gets to be part of! Let him help me train Jack to sleep in a big boy bed!

Speaking of beds, I am pretty sure mine is calling my name right now….. so until next time…… XOXOXOXO
