As a MOM

What is my favorite part of the day: Right after bath time. My kids are fed, full of energy...smell so good, HAPPY and are ready for a full day.

Least Favorite Part of the day: I would say before dinner time. Trying to figure out what we are going to eat. My kids are so tired and ornery...I am tired and ornery too.

Proudest Moment: This one is hard. I am always proud of my kids, but I love when people stop me in a store and tell me how cute my kids are. Addi never meets a stranger. She talks and waves to everyone. Kohen is more shy, but sometimes will follow his sister. I LOVE when Kohen teaches Addi the primary songs. He gets SOOO excited to sing them to her, and when she sings them back to makes me SO happy!

My biggest challenge as a mother: Working full time, balancing my time between both of them and having Zach travel.

Biggest Oooops/Embarrassing moment: When we are going ANYWHERE and Addi will say, "Shit Shit Shit Shit Shit Shit" get the picture....guess I need to work on that one.

Thing I said I would never do or say: I NEVER thought I would drive a minivan...and I LOVE it. I always hated when I would ask my mom something and she would say,"because I said so." I swore I would never say that.

What am I looking forward to: Watching my kids grow and change. I am looking forward to the next phase in life. Being a stay at home mom. Having Zach graduate and moving to Egypt. I LOVE being a mom. It is by far the most challenging thing I have ever done, but yet the most rewarding. Nothing is better than a sweet kiss or hearing those words that I will always cherish...I LOVE you. I can't imagine taking this journey with anyone other than Zach. He is an amazing dad and I love him so much. My kiddies are my little side kicks and best buds. I love you KoKo and Addi.

I can not imagine having to be gone from your honey with 2 kids every year. I hope you get to not have to do that for much longer. When does he graduate?
