New Chicks In The Family

Good morning and happy weekend! We made it through another week :)

I just had to come on here and share with you guys our latest adventure here in Kim. Some of you have probably already seen the new members of our family on Instagram, Snapchat, or Facebook but I wanted to share some more photos of them with y'all.

The other day D was in one of the bigger towns that surrounds us taking care of some stuff for his EMT certification. I had asked him to run to Big R to get dog food and while he was there he sent me a picture of the chicks they have right now (I wonder if he regrets doing that now lol). 

I jokingly sent him a text saying that he should get some and with a little convincing and telling him how much Cash would love them, he got them!!! I was so excited, you guys. Lol

We were kind of nervous that our dog would eat them. I still watch him closely everyday because he looks at the chicks like they're a plate of chicken nuggets ready to get eaten. Lol. I'm not kidding though, he licks his lips and stares at them all. day. long.

Cash was napping when D got home with them, so he set everything up for the babies and once it was all good to go, we got Cash up. He was SO excited. After he wakes up from his nap or in the mornings now, his first thing he does is check on his chickens. It's so cute.

When we let the chickens walk around in the kitchen the first night so the boys could check them out, they really made Stetson crawl. He learned to crawl maybe a week or so ago, but having a chick in front of him really made him cruise. It was so cute.

I decided to name them after classic country singers. Patsy, Loretta, Dolly and June. I thought that was cute for them and goes with our theme of 'country' names in our family.



It's been so fun seeing how much Cash and Stetson love them. I love doing stuff like this with our boys so they can grow up with animals and learn the responsibility and care that goes into having animals. I know they're both a little young to help out with everything, but Cash does some small chores that I help him with and I truly think leading by example is one of the best ways for kids to learn.

It cracks me up that D agreed to getting us chickens, but I think those last minute decisions like that are sometimes the best ones. :)

Hope you guys have a wonderful weekend and follow me on Instagram (@mandythemomma) so you can stay updated on the chickens and boys. Lol ;)

My Birth Stories

There is so much I could write about pregnancy, giving birth to my two sons and all that happens after. I thought about splitting this up into a bunch of different topics, but let's be honest...I don't get on here nearly as often as I'd like so I think it's a better idea for me to just sit down and take the time to blog about Cash and Stetson's birth stories in one sitting. I'll definitely have a separate blog post sometime in the future on pregnancy, but that is seriously a WHOLE different subject with a WHOLE lot of topics within itself.

So my son Cash will be 3 in September. I had a normal pregnancy with him; the morning (all day) sickness, exhaustion, fatigue, etc. I am so thankful that it was a healthy pregnancy and that my body was able to bring life to this little man.

Near the end of my pregnancy, D and I moved into our first apartment. I graduated from cosmetology school about a week before my due date and I ended up going into labor close to 41 weeks.…

I'm going to apologize in advance if this is all over the place. Hahaha. Blogging while your needy sick toddlers are around isn't the easiest and I've thought of a million different things I want to talk about as I've been writing, so this may seem a bit scatterbrained. Lol. But hopefully this can help some of y'all that have wanted to start doing this! I enjoy being honest with you guys and hope that you all know how thankful I am for every one of you that I have connected with online!

If you've been following me on Instagram for awhile, you'll know that I haven't been doing this for a long time. In fact, my first collaboration wasn't even until around April of this year, so I've only been doing this for around 9 months. I'm still very …
