I have a 6 year old!!!

Well, last week my sweet little ladybug had her birthday last week. She had a nice long celebration. On Saturday the 21st I gave her a present. It was a super cute shirt that I had made. It was purple and had hot pink writing that said "Future Mrs. Bieber" and had a diamond ring on it. She loved it! I was SO happy. Her theme this year was Justin Bieber. We had the party at the skating rink and they provided all the paper products. All I had to do was the cake. So with that, I had to pull the them in there. I got Justin Bieber invites, the shirt and the cake had an edible image of him on it and it said "Happy Birthday to the future Mrs. Bieber".

The party was a success. She has SOOOO much fun. I initially was going to skate with her but because of the arm I decided to walk. Well, I should have skated. After about the first time or two around she was a pro. She skated better than she ever has. She had a few balance issues but at points I had to run to keep up with her. After the party we went to Kohl's with Granny and she bought her some birthday dresses.

Monday night we had a family dinner and most of my family was there. It was awesome! She had the people who had not signed her cast do that and they sang her happy birthday and my nephew's girlfriend Maegan put whipped cream in her face. K didn't know what to think. We also bought ice cream for her friends at lunch that day because the next day was the class picnic. She was helper at school too and got to wear a crown.

Tuesday was her actual birthday. I went and picked her up and we met her dad at Chuck E. Cheese. We were there a little over 2 hours. It was fun. She played everything. I was MOST proud of her ski ball skills. The last time we were there she STANK at it but this time she was a ski ball MASTER! She was even playing LEFT HANDED!!!! I can't wait until the cast comes off and she can play for real. We went back to the house where we had cake and opened presents. Her dad made her a chocolate cake with funfetti icing. She opened presents and got Gnomeo and Juliet, Tangled, Despicable Me, two DS games, a bunch of socks, and this Hello Kitty umbrella she had been wanting for months!

I love my sweet little ladybug more than anything in the world. I can't believe how much she has grown. We had her six year check-up and she weighs 52 lbs (70th percentile) and 47 7/8" (90th percentile). We also went to see the orthopedic last week and he said the arm is healing nicely. We go back on the 14th for more x-rays and she may get the cast off is all is well.

I am so super proud to be Kendall's mom. She is the absolute light of my life. I can't imagine a life without her. She is so beautiful. She is smart, funny, and so full of life. She has such a huge heart and loves everyone so much. I think the thing the thing I love the most is how silly she is. She is a super funny girl. I am so proud of the little ladybug I am raising.

Well, it has been a week since I posted. Kendall did indeed break her arm on Mother's day. We took her to the orthopedic on Tuesday of last week and they put on a pink glittery cast. A few people have signed it. It is itching her and is not comfy when she sleeps and is definitely throwing off her balance. She is supposed to jeep it on for 4-6 weeks but we go back on the 23rd for xrays and to see where we stand. They have until 06/28 to get that thing off because we leave for the wedding on the 29th lol.

I can't believe it has been two weeks since I have been alone. I thought I would be happier, but I did not realize how freeing it feels. I miss K when she is with her Daddy but I am SO glad they have their time together. She is a sweet girl and I love her so much. I am proud with how she is handling this all so well.

My Ladybugs won their first game in the tournament so we move on to the winners bracket. Tomorrow we play the 2nd place team so I am a little nervous, but I think if they play as well as they did last week. They are rock stars and they have all done so well! I have really enjoyed being their coach but am not sure if I want to be head coach again. I think I will assist but I am not sure if I have it in me to be in charge again.

School is almost out. There are only 12 more days until my baby is a first grader. That is insane!!! Kindergarten has gone SO fast!

Also, my little baby will be 6 in NINE days! NINE! That is crazy! 6 years ago today I was being bounced in a bounce house "break the egg" style by two good friends trying to put me into labor! They had good intentions, but that girl was NOT ready to come out! Heck, she was not even ready on the day she was born! She was super stubborn then and still is. I am the same way though so who can blame her!!

Broken arm

It is late and I am so so sooooo tired, but I just had to write. Kendall fell off her cousins 4 wheeler tonight and broke her arm. At least the ER doc thins it is broken...We have to go to an orthopedic now and see what they say...So, for now it is in a fiberglass splint and I will make an appt. in the morning...

Other than ending with a broken arm and a trip to the ER, my mother's day was awesome! Guess it kind of tests your motherhood when you are in the ER on mother's day with a broken baby...

May and change

Well, today is May 1st. In 23 days I will have a 6 year old. That is SO hard to believe. This day came WAY too fast. I am not ready at all. I am sure I am going to be in tears on the big day. And she will tell me I am a freak haha.

As for changes, these have been brewing for months. I moved out of my house today and in with my mom. I have not been happy for a long time and I think I deserve a chance at finding it. I am fine, but I do worry that K and her dad are not taking it well. I am going to miss her when it is not my day, but I have been away from her before and we both survived.
