No. I don't want a Girl

Call it mother’s instinct or a lucky guess.  I knew the second I found out I was pregnant that I was having a boy – both times.

God has the best sense of humor.  Before I was pregnant, I wanted a dance squad of little girls twirling around my house in their frilly tutu’s and pigtails.  I even bought an adorable little overall outfit for my first-born [daughter] before I was even married.
Can you say “cray cray”?!

Family-Friendly Jayhawk Football + Giveaway! #OneTeam

The kids have gone back to school, structure is starting to kick in, and homework and after school practices have begun. And if your house is anything like our house, our boys know that shortly after school starts … football season is not far behind.  Which is a pretty BIG deal in our house!

All of our friends and family know that when the team has kicked off … you either hush, or join in with the screaming. We can get a little loud.  And if we actually GO to a game, well, we’re that family that can get a little cray cray too.  But that’s what makes it fun, right?  In our book, the words “football” and “family” just go together like “pizza” and “beer” errrr, “pop”!

All Star Adventures in Wichita, KS is the Place to PLAY! (+ coupon)

This is a sponsored post on behalf of USFG and the Adventure Landing group. The post is written by me and I was not monetarily compensated for this post. I was provided with a family 4-pack but it did not reflect my opinion on All Star Adventures. This place rocks without me having to say so!

School is almost back in session and if your kids are anything like mine … they’re getting antsy and bored with the same route every day.

Here's an idea! Wear them out, and spend some family time before school starts and spend the day at All Stars of Wichita!

All Star Sports/Adventures has something for everyone – from kids to adults – so the whole family can enjoy all of the excitement that All Star Adventures has to offer. Stay cool in the summer and get splashed on the Bumper Boats. Practice your putting skills on the Miniature Golf Courses or Driving Range. Race your friends on the Go-Karts, take a swing inside the Batting Cages, bump and dodge on the Bumper Cars, throw a strike in Bowlingo Bowling. Perfect your gaming skills and win prizes in their Mega Arcade or enjoy any of their awesome Amusement Rides!

Next time you hear your child say, "I’m soooooo bored" … head on over to one of two All Star Sports and/or Adventures in Wichita, KS. I promise you’ll be the "cool mom/dad". At least for the day anyway.

BONUS: Any of The Procrastinating Mommy readers can enjoy this coupon on me! Don’t say I never gave ya anything :::wink wink:::

Red Balloons for Ryan

Literally .... twenty minutes ago .... I sat here at my keyboard typing out something to say. How I wanted to word exactly what I was thinking. But I too, kept deleting what I wrote. Even those two sentences I just typed out, had been written three times. Word for word. Deleted. Word for word. Deleted.

I didn't know Jacqui or Dan or Ryan. But I felt like I did. I followed Baby Boy Bakery on Instagram and Twitter. I saw this sweet, adorable, red-headed little boy who was the exact same age as Christopher, fill my news feeds everyday.

It was actually him that drew me towards the children's clothing line, Quinn and Fox.

This could easily have been Christopher. A rambunctious and energetic 3.5 year old who was care-free, loved the world around him, and was loved by everyone.
