Flag Football

Naia played her first flag football game of the year today. Well to say she played is probably a gross exaggeration...During the first game I went out on the field with her. Her crying and other parents wondering why I'm making this poor little girl in her striped tall socks and hot pink flower headband in her head, play football. It's obvious that she doesn't want to play. HA! Little turkey begged me to play. Anyways, they were playing a jamboree today, so they played two 15 minute games. She finally played in one play during the last couple of minutes or so. Poor girl. And to say she played....well she stood in the line and moved slightly when they all ran! We had a nice break between games and her coach practiced with the team and she finally got a bit warmed up to acutal play. For the second game I told her she needed to play at least 5 plays. After exactly five plays she took herself out! haha At least she did the 5. BUT when the coach called her back in she just took off! She played most of the game and did great as a blocker! She actually moved her feet during this game and looked like any other scared kid out there! All in all she had a good time. So proud of her for getting out there in the end. Hopefully by the end of the season she'll be a pro!

My life as a glamourous mom....

HA! Well I guess Paxton's not fully over his bug. He hasn't really eaten anything solid in the past two days. So tonight when we went out with friends for dinner like we usually do on Sunday nights and he drank a cup of water I guess it was just too much for his tummy. Luckily my quick super mom instincts/reactions kicked in and when he started coughing I knew it would be followed by throw up. I grabbed the empty chip bag and caught all vomit. Therefore, avoiding any mess! Look at me go! Oh the life of a mom! There's never a dull moment!

So....Brent Efird has been off work the past 12 days. Kids have been healthy, slept great, no accidents, etc. He left for nightshift an hour and a half ago and Paxton has thrown up on me. Literally on me. On my flip flopped feet. In the middle of the street. Had to cancel Naia's PT conference tonight b/c of that. Now have to go back into town to retrieve Xavier from karate with a sickly baby. AND no husband to help! hahaha....never amazes me how stuff like this only happens during nightshift!
