For years, I peered over my styrofoam beer cup at those Stay at Home Mommies and wondered about their elusive world. What do they do all day? Where do they go? Well, I finally gave in (at a slightly panicky 27) and turned in my drinking hat. Watch me as I infiltrate their ranks….

I have always thought blue blood coursed through my veins. I strongly suspected that a tiara rested on the regal heads of my female ancestors. I considered the possibility that my pedigree, somehow lost in the royal shuffle, had the noble family crest imprinted at the bottom….(in fine print)…for all to see…(provided they have a magnifying glass).

And, now I know it’s true.

When I enter a room, music plays.

“Can you tell me how to get
How to get to Sesame Streeeeet.”

All occupants of the room rise upon my arrival.

“Pick me up! Pick me up!! Mommmy! Mooooooommy!”

When there is a crisis, I am always the first to be beckoned.

“He BROKE my dolly!!! Cooper is roping my princess vanity! Carter just wore his boots in the pool! AHHHHH!”

I have a full wait staff.

“Ahh…So, yeah…hon, can ya pick up a pizza? and while you're out..another case of beer....bottles this time.”

My ladies in waiting circle when I call…

“We're headed to dirty G's....but oh...I forgot....Yeah! Ya better pick up those Cheerios, Missy!”

I live in a prestigious palace…

“I don’t know how we fit all these toys in this crackerjack box of a house !”

…surrounded by sprawling grounds.

“Babe, is that some sort of weed experiment gone wrong in the backyard?”

I gracefully rule while perched atop my throne.

“Close the door!! I am using the bathroom!”

Of course, I always bow to the Queen Mum.

“Yeah, yeah. I know. facebook less. Cook more. Gotcha the first time, Mama!”

And, it is my sincere hope that I pass my tiara on to my little princesses…

“Texas A&M. Texas A&M, Texas A&M.....if all else fails...Marry Rich. Marry Rich. Marry Rich.”

Here’s to all the other royal mommies out there.

Fake kiss. Stiff wave. Curtsy. Fake kiss. Stiff wave. Curtsy.

Today's Graces

1) Cooper's great attitude about baseball
2) getting my carpets cleaned tomorrow
3) about to finish cleaning the kids' closets
4) chic-fil-a for lunch
5) no josh tomorrow...(remember, I'll explain one day!)

Move Over Richard Simmons...

OK OK.....So I did it...I've given in. I joined 'Fit Camp' at the local gym. For those of you that know me you'll know I have never been a fan of working out. I don't get that great adrenaline rush after working out that makes you feel good about yourself. I have HUGE boobs that bounce up and down like 4 1/2 inches everytime I jump. Last but not least I have no endurance OR upper body strength. I enter the gym with a bad attitude and I leave the gym with a worse attitude. BUT last night I went to a fit camp nutrition session filled with people just like me....and I had a revelation. My bad attitude about a healthy lifestyle is standing in the way I'm turning it around...I'm going to try this all new positive approach. I am not making any promises but...I'm gonna try! If all else fails I drink boxed wine!

So I'm jealous...of another girl's blog. Well, not actually completely jealous but is the most amazing blog I have read in a long time! Lincee, the girl that writes it, is a high school friend of my sister-in-law. Stacie, my sister in law, turned me on to Lincee's blog and I must admit, I'm addicted. Maybe one day I'll be that of now, I only have three blog entries....maybe I should work on that!

I stole this from my friend Allison....
Today's Graces
1. Josh is suspended (maybe I can expound on that later)
2. I stuck to my healthy living eating goals
3. I bought some women's complete vitamins (target brand, fitness magazine recommends them)
4. I got to go to target
5. Carter didn't pee pee in his goodnight diaper last night...and that, my friend, is HUGE!
And those Graces are worth a great shot of tequila!
