nap time?

I have three kids with horrid coughs and runny noses and on top of that the minions are also ALL teething. This makes for a grumpy momma. The minions now have different "online names" they came up with these name their self. We have Hunny she is our three year old girl we have Sexy our 2 year old girl and Smelly our 2 year old boy.

So what is new... umm Hunny had an EEG earlier this month that was NOT fun but it came back normal. She also had a dentist appointment and didn't try and punch anyone in the face this is a HUGE accomplishment.

Sexy is talking up a storm and starting to trust a little more, she is very bonded to the Hairy Hubby and I but does not trust anyone else. I am hoping we will be able to work through this. Poor kid has lived a life.

Smelly is finally starting to use his words. His little cheeks are starting to get a little chubby. He is also a charmer and can get anything he wants.

So we did a take two of swimming yesterday. There was only a little screaming! Smelly needs to get some meat on his bones he would have enjoyed it a little more if he wasn't freezing to death. Sexy didn't scream but head a death grip until about the last 10 minutes when she would "jump" off the edge to daddy (step off while keeping a death grip.) Hunny LOVED it she tried to float on her back and tummy and she would actually jump off the edge to me, she kicked, blew bubbles and was very upset when it was time to go. This swimming trip was a true testament to how far our kids have come. They are starting to trust, they are feeling safe and they are learning that mommy and daddy are sticking around and love them forever.

As for adoption. the judge still hasn't signed the order to terminate parental rights. I am not quite sure what to think about that. We have court about on March 7th I guess we will see what happens. I have had contact with bio mom and soon will be in contact with bio dad as well. This is all a very intimidating to me. I never know if I am doing things right. I want my kids to know who and where they come from but I want to keep them safe as well. I also want their family to be able to heal and know that the kids are safe and thriving. Does anyone have any tips on how to navigate all of this.

I am looking for some meals that are very much throw together meals, I would LOVE so ideas. Come dinner time I am exhausted and cooking dinner becomes very daunting. I am also getting bored of our "typical menu" I would LOVE LOVE LOVE Crock Pot ideas.

Do you guys have any questions for me? I know I am confusing and very random and jump ideas quickly and without warning. I would love to requests on what to write about.
