::Graduate of 2013::

Braden finally graduated!! I was so happy for him. It has been a long time going for this boy! We have worked hard to get him done with high school!! I am so excited to watch him grow up & eventually begin a family of his own!! He is such a hard worker & a good kid!! Love ya Braden!! My parents surprised him with a brand new F-150 black truck. He was ecstatic!!
Here are some pictures from the day he got his truck, grad night & the ceremony!!

::One year::

Yay I am so happy to have made it one year with this blog!! It is such a good way to let everyone in on what we are up to!!
We have loved the warm days we have had!! Kam has moved to Malad with his mom! We are ecstatic! No more meeting in Twin Falls. 2.5 hours of driving to twin vs. 40 minutes to McCammon!! McCammon wins for us! More time with Kam Bam too, Carter has missed him the most I think. He loves his brother.
Wyatt is everywhere now. He is an outside dude for sure. He screams & throws a fit everything we have to come in.
Carter has made some new friends with the cute kids across the street. We have always known them but now the kids are to the age where they start playing with other kids!! It is so fun & so good to get Carter away from his momma. My boys are severely attached to me! I hate it, but what do you expect from being a stay at home mom. We are always friends!!

May 22,2013
We had to put Diesel down. I am so sad & we miss him so much. I cried most of the day. He was 5ish...we think. He was our rescue puppy...he wasn't taken care of in the best way before us & we tried to do the best we could. His back all the sudden got terrible. He couldn't move from his bed to his food in the kitchen without crying & whimpering. It was heartwrenching ti hear & know that he was in pain. I think it was a combo of back problems & old age. I didn't want to put him down but knew it was the best thing to do. The kids don't quite understand, we have kam for the night so we are going to paint a big rock with his name on it & put it on the grave under the tree. Bo is now sleeping in our room. He has cried & paced the house looking for him. I am so sad for bo.I really hope Bo stays for us for a long time. I don't know if I would ever get another one if he goes as fast as my last 2 have. :(

::What I Miss::

Day 12 is what I miss the most.....

Pictures 1 2 &3 are from high school drill team. Me Whit & Ky were inseperable & their friendship was amazing. All 3 of us have moved on to new things but we still keep in touch with each other & have each others back no matter what. I miss our tight friendship.

Picture 4 is Graduation night with my Grandma Vicki & Grandpa Lee. These 2 people are on my top hero list. They are so amazing. I value everything they ever did & do for me. I miss my Grandma. She was/is amazing. I LOVE HER!

Picture 5 is one of my senior pictures. I used to take 1-2 hours "dolling" myself up. I miss caring so much about myself. Ii know I have 2 little boys to care most about but sometimes mommies need their time to.

Picture 6 is college. This is super shallow...I looked so good bodywise. I think this was definitely the best I ever looked. Sad to say this was also the peak of my eating problems. This was the year it all came out & I decided to fall back mainly on Trev. I do miss this body though.

::10 Words::

WOW!!! I am super behind on my MAY challenge..this is why I don't do them. I am terrible. So I am just going to get caught up!

Day 11 was sell yourself in 10 words or less

Strong, Independent, Trustworthy, Helpful, Have to Finish EVERYTHING

::Yup I Did That::

When I was in Junior High, I remember starting my period. It was horrifying. Like it is for every girl when it happens..well I just happen to be IN SCHOOL & IN KHAKI CAPRIS. Seriously life sucked at that moment not even kidding. Ok So of course I didn't know what to do & our year end dance was in 10 minutes. I had a crush on one of the boys in my class and my friends had told me he wanted to dance with me. AHHH. I was so scared well of course I leaked onto my pants before my mom could make it to the school to help me. I was mortified so what do I do???? Wrap a jacket around my butt. I was so embarrassed and everyone knew that I had started and back then it was a HUGE deal. I was one of the first so it was just horrible. Looking back I realize how little I really was and what else was I suppose to do, I had no idea what was happening. I am just glad my mom was in town to help me right away.

Of course I had the embarrassing oh I like you as a friend moments when the guy is all you can think about. that kinda sucks too.

I have had the trip up or down the stairs moments.

I even had Trevor's cousin in on my C-Section with Wyatt. That was pretty bad for me once I learned he was in there for it. I don't really know why that is so embarrassing to me, but it just was.

::Advice Anyone::

I have been so stubborn about things in the past and refuse help. When I found out I was pregnant with Carter I knew we were going to be great parents. It wasn't until he actually came & I really did have to be a mom. It's hard. All the sudden you go from being responsible only for yourself to having a little baby who depends on you every minute of every day. If I could give any advice, and I usually do to every new mom I know, it would be. LET SOMEONE HELP IF THEY OFFER & YOU NEED IT. I had a very very hard time with this. I felt like if I was willing to be pregnant and make this little guy healthy in my body, why can't I do it on my own when he is out of my body? It's not fair to you or to the baby to try to do this. I had a very hard time nursing. I dried up soon after Carter turned 1 month. I was pressured into thinking that nursing was the best and only way to go. It's not. I learned that the hard way. We cried and cried lots during the days and the nights. He would obviously feed off me and get upset and cry as well. It was terrible, when I finally dried up and we realized he was sad because he wasn't getting enough food I was heartbroken. MOM FAIL ONE! It was so hard to understand why your body does this to you. As soon as I got him on formula it was like a whole new life. I could let other people take him. I didn't have to be with him 24/7 to feed him. Anyone could help and it made my life a lot less stressful.

Not only does this apply to being a mommy, but it applies to life as well. Life is a whole lot simpler if you let people help you. Sometimes you spread yourself to thin and think you can do it when really you just get farther behind and more frustrated.

So let someone help you out once in a while!!!

::I'm Most of Afraid of::

I think when you become a mom, your babies become your most valued possessions. I love my 3 boys. I don't know what my life would have ever been like had I not decided to that I loved my husband enough to stick out when he found out Kam was his son. It was hard, don't get me wrong. Being a step-mom is one of the hardest things I have ever done. It is emotionally and physically draining. It is understanding the boundaries of the mom and staying within those boundaries. It is a lot of good communication and meeting in the middle.
I treat Kam as if he is my own. I'm the only step-mom he has ever known. I was dating Trevor when he came into this world and from that day to the present we have been a family. I always knew I was going to marry Trev. I sucked him in...he couldn't resist staying with me. I love him so much & he has given me two of the best little boys in this world.
I am most afraid of losing my boys. I love them all just the same and just the same as well. 

I am very close to my family. I live about 2 blocks from my parents and my sister and bro-in-law are living with them till their house gets here so we are very close. They are there in a pinch anytime I need them to keep my kids and I am here when Lacie and Cam need me to take Kasleigh. Kas loves Carter and is such an easy going baby! She was a puker for the first few months and hard to figure out what was goin on with the little stink, but we were all there for Lacie! That's what we do. 
I am also most afraid of losing them.

Ok so on a funny note though....
I am most afraid of MIDGETS....Small People... Whatever.
I was on the high-school drill-team and we were at boys basketball districts, well the place we were at had a midget janitor. We were in the wrestling room and we were changing getting ready for halftime and in he walks while we are half naked....huge impact on me. It scared me & now I can't even watch Little People Big World.

::A Blogger I Love::

Jenni at Story of my Life is amazing. She is fashionable & down to earth & writes about every day original stuff. I was so excited when she came up with this Blog Every Day in May challenge, I have had such a blog brain freeze. Possibly just cause we haven't done anything fun.. I feel like this blog is more of a family themed blog so when we are boring it turns out to be boring too!! So this helps my reader get to know me!!

Back to Jenni, she is so cute, I am not even sure how I found her blog but I love it. Even though she doesn't  have any kids she still has such a fun blog!! You should check her out!!

This quote got me through my Grandma Vicki's cancer experiences & her passing.

I loved that woman more than words can express. She was one of my best friends. She got me through some rough patches & was there when I needed to vent.

::Wait... Ugh... What???::

Day 3 of Blog Every Day In May. Something that makes me uncomfortable...lots.
This is probably a huge one for lots...public bathrooms. I hate them. They are disqusting 90% of the time. Very rarely do I ever find one that is decent. When I was in H.S. I would wait until I was hunched over in pain from such a full doesn't work like that with little boys. My boys have chose the worst places possible to have to go potty. After I had Wyatt I went on the Bee Pollen Diet! Great Results! Terrible Side Effects. If I even looked at sugar I would have to run to the bathroom..TMI...lay it out for ya I have, I got horrible diarrhea. When I ate anything junk I was in the bathroom fast. It was horrible...& hugely uncomfortable.

The next most uncomfortable is being at my in-laws & a condom commercial or a sex scene from a movie advertises & we are all in the room. I am so shy when my husband has dirty jokes let alone be in the same room as my in-laws watching a commercial that humiliates everyone.

So yeah..there is my top two most uncomfortableis ideas.

::Gettin Down & Gettin Dirty Bein A Mom::

It's day 2 of my Blog Every Day In May. Its all about something I know a lot about. What better than being a mommy!!
I do this every day all day. I am up at all hours of the day & night. I have been puked on, cloroxed the bathtub because a certain little one year old thinks its ok to poop every single night for the past two weeks in the tub, i have done it all! I would never take back having my sweet little munchkins tho. Especially when my little Carter bug tells me how pretty I look or brings me a flower (dandelion) & says "mom, i picked this flower just for you." Nothing could take away the feeling I get when I have those experiences.
It is hard work being a mom. The mom does IT ALL. Everyone thinks it easy's not.. I haven't slept in almost 4 years. Carter has never been a good sleeper. He has always been up at least 3 times a night. Its definitely no fun, but like I said...wouldn't take it back ever. My house is never spotless, I always have dishes in the sink & my tub usually still has toys from the night before sitting the next day.
I am no perfect mom but I do my best & I get told frequently by Carter that I am his best friend. I love having my boys around...they test me & they give me the best feeling in the world. I love being a mommy!!

::Can YOU Describe Your Life in 250 Words?::Challenge Accepted::

I was born in Provo, Utah April 20, 1989. Yes Folks That's Hitlers Birthday. Coincidence?? I moved to Grace, Idaho when I was just baby and have been here ever since. I grew up learning to love dance, and I still do. I am outgoing and love to be girly. I was on the drill-team in High School and miss it so much. TMI for the public and very personal but if you read my blog you probably already know this, I became obsessed with my weight. I lost a lot and still have huge fears of becoming fat. When I met this husband of mine, he saved me from that little voice that hurt me so much. I graduated and met my amazing husband Trevor Mecham. He has a cute little blue eyed boy named Kameron who became my step-son. We got married Oct. 3, 2008. Carter was born on Nov. 11, 2009 and I became a full-time mommy. We moved to Utah in 2010 when hubby decided to be a coal miner. It only lasted a year. We moved back to Grace and hubby got a job as a service miner. Yes he loves mining. Mr. Wyatt came to us on Feb, 11 of 2012. I have had a nasty little addiction to Mt. Dew since becoming a mommy. It's a tough job. I have lost a whole lot of sleep over these cute little boys. I love my life and wouldn't change anything in it. Wish me Luck!
