So last week I went to Jalenas school X-mas party! Took the whole day off from work for 2 hours of fun! Here are some pics...
Jalena with her friends and a surprised look when Santa walked in!
She is getting soooo big!
Jalena and Santa!
Another surprised and excited look when she realized she was having donuts for breakfast!
WE She had a great time! And I'm sure enjoyed having her Mommy there the one who has no life and gets all excited for these kind of things, the annyoning Mom from the class who shows up for everything to take millions of pics!
I did not take the day off on Friday just to attend Jalenas Christmas party at school! I did not finish Christmas shopping, wait I really did not! I am not off tomorrow! Yay! I am not offically addicted to "Blog Following"! I am not having a blank mind as I do my not me!
I finally uploaded some pics from my camera! Enjoy!
Jalena and Santa!
Some of the many faces of Jalena! lol
Jalena and Kaylee at the Woodstock Festival (Arts and Crafts show)

Yes, WE are JETS fans! lol
Hanging out at the park
I'm such a good Mommy helper since I do attend every holiday party! Tomorrow Jalena has her Christmas party at school! And Santa is coming! And, yes I will be there! Of course I did not take off of work just to go to the 2 hour party, her teacher must think I'm such a good room Mommy, always attending all of the holiday parties to help, or maybe she thinks I'm annoying?!?! But at least I'm a cool Mom!
Yesterday I had to work 12-10 pm, which means I took Jalena to school in the morning, and my mom picked her up and then put her to bed. Which means we did not get to see each other yesterday afternoon :-(
Well...she must of really really missed her mama! B/c I can not count how many times she was up last night..I am sooo sleep deprived. And I can't even tell you what it is that she wanted either..Finally it was 5:15 am, after being up for 45 minutes, I said this is not cool and put her in her crib and went in the other room to sleep.
She was fine, diaper was clean...full tummy...even had some Tylenol in case it was her teeth keeping her up.
Last night, I can' even explain how frustrated I was, actually annoyed is the word. I just wanted to sleep. This morning I am thinking about last night, as I sit here in my office struggling to stay awake..and definitely have my office door shut-too tired and not in the mood to greet everyone as they walk by!
But my feelings of annoyance and frustration are quickly turning to appreciation and gratitude. As much as I don't like my sleep interrupted-I am thankful that it is. Thankful for my baby girl. I think about the women out there that would love to have their sleep interrupted by a whining 13 month old..
I am so lucky to have my princess. I have truly been blessed. And realize in certain situations like this, I need to realize just how lucky I am.
-I did not celebrate the boyfriends 35th birthday on Friday...and we did not have a wonderful night at J Alexanders and the Casino. -We did not win $185.67 on the 2 cent machine! -I did not stay home all day Saturday counting down the hours to Jalenas Nap time! B/c I did not get home at 5:15am! and my precious daughter did not wake up @ 7:05 am! Of course not...becuase she knows its the weekend, and she always sleeps in... -I did not have dinner and cheesecake @ the Cheesecake Factory on Saturday night with a girlfriend, then eat the leftover cheesecake for breakfast on Sunday! -I did not just eat Mcdonalds for breakfast! -I do not have to work 12:00pm-10:00pm today :-/
I did not miss last weeks "Not me Monday" and have a sissy fit about it! I did not just finish the apple pie from Thanksgiving, eating only the crumbles on top! I did not take Jalena to the park on Sunday and have 10 anxiety attatcks when we were up in the treehouse! Never, because I am not a worry wart! I DO NOT CHECK MCKMAMA'S BLOG ALL DAY WHEN I'M AT WORK! HER BLOG IS NOT THE ONLY THING ON MY FAVORITES! I did not turn 25 last week! I am not obsessed with Christmas shopping for my princess, because she has NO toys! I am not dreading work tomorrow...because I love my job! I did not decide to start my diet again today, and most certainly did not fail when my friend at work ordered me an ET bagel with cream cheese..which I did NOT eat! I did not say..."There's always tomorrow"!
I am not going to lay down now...I'm not tired!
That was NOT fun...I am NOT excited that I am going to click on publish post right now!
