We are POOPED!

I had just got home from Fathers Day Breakfast at my mom and dad's house. I was so tired from getting up early and getting in bed late. My husband and Casey went inside and I leaned my seat back in the car just to rest a minute. Colton was on my lap pretending to drive and he noticed our cat in the yard. He got down and started saying " Kitty, Kitty" . I watched him take off behind the car and towards the cat. He was only a few feet away from the cat and I started to notice the cats tail was up in the air and it was going to the bathroom. I popped out of the car like a mad woman and started jetting it. In my head... I just kept seeing him picking it up and putting it in his mouth. Everything else seems to make it there. I'm kinda a big girl and so I know I looked Crazi out there running like a maniac screaming " Colton... not the poop... not the poop Colton... stop." I seen him noticing the cat was dropping something from it butt. He started yanking up and down on its tail shaking it. The cat ran off and just as he was reaching for the dropping.. I swooped him up just in time. I couldn't help but the laugh at the situation. I thought I was going to die. His attention drew back to the cat that was now in a whole nother direction. I put him down and followed him. He gets to the cat and starts chasing its butt. The cat finally lays down and Colton picks it up from the tail and starts examining its butt closely with it half way in the air. I was rolling laughing. A child's curiosity is so sweet and innocent. It never gets boring that's for sure.

Moms Day Off

So.. Today is what I like to call "Mommy's Day Off", which happens rarely. Thoroughly enjoying myself since last night's grocery trip with both Colton and Casey. Well I say both but my husband should be considered a third because he is just as bad as they are.

 I catch myself looking around for them every now and then, now that they are not here. Crazi, huh? Finally get a break and then the whole time your worried about where they are at and what they are doing the whole time!

Ever happen to you?

Bat Crazi Day!!

Bat Crazi Mom is an understatement today. I have kids coming to and from in every direction. FOUR seems like 20 at the moment. Got one trying to get in the cleaning cabinet. I just got him down from the high chair because he was trying to play dare devil by standing and rocking. Two are playing tag running in circles all through the house. The other one goes Bat Crazi when you put him down. I definitely need more of these dangley things (arms) hanging from my shoulders. Well... if you can't beat em... join em!!!

Early Father's Day!

Today was an early father's day for my husband. The kids and I gave him a Wii black that he's been wanting for some time now. I am not quite sure who likes it more though.. them or him? Oh well... I just love seeing their smiling faces. Even if they are glued to the game.

What are you guys doing for the dad's in your life?

Rainy Days...

I love those rainy days when everybody's at home. We got our mattress off the bed and put it in the middle of the floor in the living room. We spent all day wrestling with the kids, watching tv cuddled together, and napping while we watched the rain fall off the roof from the window. Days like this allow us to feel connected and embrace each other. Through the craziness and the motions of everyday madness and busy schedules... I feel it's important. Just to be able to stop and take in every moment and the love you have for one another. It's therapeutic.

My Story:
 My name is Ciara Hammett. I am 23 years old. I am a wife to my husband, Christopher and a mother to two beautiful boys named Colton and Casey. I am a full time housewife and stay at home mom. I always have more kids than just my own on a regular basis. I love it. I grew up in the foster care system and I moved from home to home alot. There was no such thing as getting to comfortable. Thats when things got bad. I met the love of my life when i was 15. He was 18. He was my next door neighbor at the current foster home I was in. There rules were very strict. I was not allowed to date. I stayed there for about two years. It was the longest I ever stayed in a home. Eventually the home was broken and I lost contact with him. I was put in a group home afterwards. Now 17, I started to date again a few months later. I ended up getting pregnant. I didnt know what to do or what to expect being that I was in the system. They eventually found a home that would take my baby and I. It became my family. Not just a foster family. In a years time.. I got my drivers license, finished with parenting classes, got my GED, had a full time job, and plenty of money in the bank. I was able to keep my baby when it was born. I knew right away I was going to be a good mom and I was going to have better and do better for my children. When Casey was a month old.. Chris ( the next door neighbor ) and I reunited at a church revival that my previous foster parents invited us to. It began again. We married 6 months later and he became a father to my son, Casey. We have been married for five years now. We now have another son, Colton. We are GPS and therapeutic trained. We are ready to become foster parents when I turn 25 and we will be working with pregnant teen girls and their infants. We live only a quarter mile from my new profound family and I am surrounded by all of them. We live next door to my Granna which the kids love. We have a nice home and my husband now works for my dad. My kids will never have to worry about the things I did. They will always have stability and the love of family.
