The View: Week 22-26, my view


This week on the view there were several good shows that I really enjoyed watching.

Monday,Senator Evan Bayh came on and I would have like them to have more time with him, it seemed he just wasn't able to answer all the questions that were flying at him. From what I have read about him, his decision to quite was not easy. They also talked about credit card regulations and the things you have to look out for with Jordan E. Goodman. Also on the discussion board was their reactions to the Tiger Woods interview.

Tuesday's show included Ricky Gervais and the cast of the Jersey Shore, I have to admit that I am not a big fan of the Jersey shore and was not really interested in the interview but I did sit through the entire thing. I have to admit I felt like I really could feel how Whoopi and Joy were feeling. I just think I am too old to get into the show and really give a crap about the cast. I tried to watch a few episodes with my Son who is 18 and I just got annoyed. To those of you who enjoy the show more power to you and enjoy. Ricky Gervais on the other hand is one of my favorite and I had a blast watching and I have already started watching his new show on HBO it’s a scream. I just love the conversations that he and his friends have and it’s actually a show my sister and I enjoy.

On Wednesdays show, I was very surprised to see Nadya Suleman on the show and was somewhat put off by some of the questions but I thought for the most part it was a good interview. I also did not think it was nice of them to keep calling her the Octomom to her face. I did like the line of questions they did have and I hope that this women can figure out a way to take care of these 14 children and heal her family as well as herself. I know a lot of people did not like that she was on the show, but she was not paid for the interview and I believe that no matter how you feel about her she is a Hot Topic.

Thursday was all about infertility and they had Bill and Giuliana Rancic who are dealing with that issue very openly on their show. It was a good interview and I have to admit that I agreed with Whoopi, if you really want a baby you would gain the 5-10 pounds. It was interesting to see the couple where the man was the infertile one and the two women who are older and still trying to conceive. I myself have not had issue with infertility but I know many who have and it’s a serious and hard issue to deal with and I hope that the information that was provided helped someone.

Friday was a little less serious, on were Regis and Joy Philbin and I have to say it was nice to see Regis in such a good mood. I loved that they performed together. There was also a segment on yet another way for weight loss with The F-Factor Diet, Tanya Zuckerbrot. Fiber and protein with every meal should help you lose weight, well we shall see. Dr Gadget was also back with some fabulous gadgets from the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas that was my favorite segment.

I am looking forward to next week when they will have Robert Pattinson, Lisa Kudrow not to mention Wesley Snipe and Don Cheadle. See you next week.

One of the best games I think anyone could come up with and I am happy that I got it for my children. I purchased the Uno Farm game for my kids this christmas and they love it and I would recommend this product to anyone with young children. They seem to have a better time with this over candy land or chutes and ladders so I suggest if you can go out and get it.

Rounding Up

It is less then a week until my younges dauther turns 2 year old and I have to say that its a very exciting and interesting time in her life and I am sad to see her get a year older. She is a wonderful child who is ready to be a 2 year old and ready to run with the rest of the kids in the house on a more equal footing. I know that for most 2 is not a big deal but in our family its really the end of being a baby. She will be working on potty trainging and has a wonderful vocabulary and its just funny how much has changed in just a year. I am amazed at how much she has learned and how much she has changed. I look forward to welcoming this new adventure with this little lady and I hope to be able to welcome many more years with her. On Monday March 1st she will be 2 and I hope that she has a wonderful and exciting day filled with love and family who will always be here for her.

Where will the day take you?

Today is the day that I have vowed to keep my temper and wits about me for the next 24 hours. I have not been the best parent this week while dealing with a few stressful situations. I admit that I have a lot of short comings and that my temper has always been one of them, mainly because I have very little patients. Its funny to think that I can not go an entire day without yelling, but also sad to think I do yell basically from the time I get up to the time my kids go back to bed. Its been a real struggle this month to handle all of the things going on in our family and trying to get ready for the life altering adjustments we are all going to make this summer. Instead of working on changing my children and making them better, I have decided to start with me, it only seems right. I am not trying to become a "perfect parent", but my goal is to be a better, more patient,parent. So lets see where this day takes us and hope that it last at least 24 hours and that this is the start of a new beginning for me.

Paper airplanes

This morning my children were given paper airplanes by their father it was a very big deal for the girls and a big thrill for my husband. He folded 3 paper planes nice and neat and handed them to our 5,3,and 1 year old girls. They all set out to fly their planes and it was an adventure to watch them laugh and giggle. Laugh if full of moment where all you need is a simply piece of paper and some room to enjoy yourself. This morning before daddy had to to head to work he made 4 girls happy including me and its a memory that I will have for a long time to come

Feeling the Crunch

So as of Feb 3, I have implemented a chore rule in the house. My two oldest kids will have at least 2 choirs to do everyday and even my little ones will have something to do on a daily basis. Its gonna be some work to stick with the plan, but I think its best for all. I can not and should not run myself into the ground in order to try and keep this house running. Most of the time I am so tired by the end of the day that I just pass out and don't really enjoy the rest that sleep is suppose to bring. I have committed to a total clean of my house, but over the course of one months. I have a lot to do and a short time to do it in. This next baby is going to turn our house upside down and I hope to be able to ride the wave of chaos and not just survive but come out a winner. Working on a daily schedule is still in the works and I have even started meal planning for the week. Its a new year with lots of possibilities and I want to take advantage of all of them. Here is to new beginnings.

Loss of Patients

So with baby number 6 on the way I have noticed all the things that are wrong with my current daily schedule. The first thing is that I don't have one and that is not a good thing. With baby #3 I had a schedule in place with in a month of her coming home, baby #4 was merged into the schedule pretty flawlessly because they were so close in age. With baby #5 things were all a panic because I just couldn't see how I would be able to put 3 girls on a reasonable schedule to accommodate 3 different stages of life. It turned out that working her into the schedule was not that difficult because I allowed things to progress naturally. I let go of the schedule because I am not working and it has really taken a toll on me. I have have three little kids who are still in very different stages and need to have a little more disciplines which will probably make us all feel a little better. So as of this month we are working on getting our self on a schedule. It will start with being able to get my preschooler and the others ready in a reasonable amount of time and not having to run around like a crazy person. I have decided that walking is a great ideal to give us all exercise and it should only take about 15 minutes to get her to school. I also want to have lunch on a regular schedule as well as breakfast and dinner. This is going to take a lot because I have very little energy and I get side track very easily. So this will be a test to see how I can work with my schedule and have it in place by the time this baby makes its entrance. I have 5 months to get it together. So which me luck, cuz I am going to need it.
