Where did my summer go???? I'm officially back to work and missing my time off so bad. I've been super busy and have been working every free minute I have. I feel like I'm neglecting my babies. For the most part I try not to work when they're awake so that leaves nap time and bed time which means NO time for me. I'm hoping things will slowly calm down and I'll get a little reprieve but I have a feeling it's going to be a long year. Oh well, that's why I get paid the BIG bucks! Ha! On a happier note, everyone here is doing great. Ava has learned to pull up on everything which just makes it easier for her to terrorize Kamryn. Kamryn has a little table that she likes to eat on every once in a while and it's just the right size for Ava to climb up and grab things off. Yesterday the plate of pancakes that Kamryn had left came flying off onto the ground so we have to be careful. Both Kamryn and Ava are doing better at school and daycare. There are no more tears in the mornings. (Almost none) Kamryn has made some friends and Ava just tolerates being left. And other that that life just continues here at the Bodine House!

1. I've gone back to work. I'm sad I have to leave my babies but in a way I need a break. Kamryn can drive a person Mad.
2. Along with me going back to work means Kamryn has started Pre-School and Ava has started daycare. Kamryn is NOT doing well in pre-school. So far every morning has been screaming and tears.
4. The Paci Fairy came. Yes, I am one of those bad parents that let Kamryn have a pacifier until the age of 3 (only at night). She didn’t even suck on it anymore. It just sat in her mouth. So a couple of weeks ago the paci fairy came and took the paci’s to give to babies that need them and left candy and a letter in their place. It was painless and we’ve been paci free ever since.
Here are the links to a few videos of Ava terrorizing!

We opted this year for something very low key. Birthday party costs can add up fast and all Kamryn cared about was having a sparkly birthday cake, a bicycle, and her friend Haley at her party. I went with it. We went to the Inflatable Wonderland in the mall. For all of you without kids, that is a place with a bunch of bouncy houses and you can let your kids go crazy. There are not sharp corners or hard things for them to injure themselves. After about an hour of that we went back to our house for pizza, cake, and ice cream. All the girls cared about was the birthday cake of course. We all had a very nice, low stress birthday experience. Now of course I have to start thinking of Ava's first birthday. Once again, time flies. She is already 8 months. She is such a sweet little girl. She hasn't started crawling yet. I have a feeling she's not going to crawl. She hates being on her stomach or the crawling position. She is starting to try to pull up on things but is still not quit there yet. I guess you really don't need to crawl when you have a big sister who will drag you places.
Some of the things that Kamryn can do now that she is 3:
2)Ride a bike (She got it for her birthday). We have ridden it daily since she got it last week. The only problem is that I end up pushing it on the way back, along with the stroller. It's not easy. We have had 2 crashes already that haven't phased her. (Thanks for the helmet Nana.)
3)Procrastinate! I feel like I have a teenager already because I'll ask her to do something and she will totally ignore me. After I repeat myself, she raises her voice and with the sassiest attitude ever replies, "I'm fixing to!"
4)She sings "I threw it on the ground" in reference to a Saturday Night Live Skit thanks to her daddy.http://FunnyOrDie.com/m/3268

So those of you who know me well, know that I am not the most tech savvy person. By choice or by consequence is up for debate but nonetheless I'm not on facebook, I don't tweet, and I don't have an i-phone to check other peoples' status every five minutes. Heck, I do good to to check my e-mail once a week. So in the past I tried doing a blog but it didn't last. Recently I have been reinspired by all of you bloggers out there. My mantra this time is, keep it simple. So I might not blog every week and it might not be anything fancy but by gosh I'm going to do it this time!!! As for the name of my blog, Kamyrn, my three year old was my inspiration. She is persistance, attitude, and sassyness all rolled into this cute little package. Every morning she wakes up and when we get down stairs my question is always the same, "What do you want for breakfast?" And her response is always the same, "I want a snack!" She goes to the pantry and points to the candy bowl in the pantry. In the bowl we have fruit snacks, m&m's, suckers, smarties... And when I say fruit snacks, I'm talking about high fructose corn syrup, not actual fruit! My response is always the same, "NO, you're not getting candy for breakfast!" And she throws a fit and life goes on. And as she's sitting there screaming because she didn't get candy for the millionth time in a row, I think to myself, "You know, maybe we all need fruitsnacks for breakfast every once in a while!" Enjoy my blog.
