WW: Eat Your Words Mama!

Those of you that know me know how much of a tomboy I really am and always was growing up.  I played every sport I could and even tried to talk my parents into letting me play others (ahem football and baseball).

I remember the days watching my brother playing football and basketball and the other parents asking me if I couldn't wait to be a cheerleader for my brother's teams....and yep I laughed at them...or ignored them.  I WAS NOT GOING TO BE A CHEERLEADER....I wanted to play football and basketball....not jump and yell for those playing why would anyone want to wear a skirt and cheer/scream for someone else???

In my eyes, cheering wasn't a sport...period the end.

As I got older and of course was still playing sports and making fun of cheerleaders who claimed they were doing a sport I swore up and down that none of my kids would EVER be cheerleaders and that I would let them play football and baseball even if they were a girl.

With that being said.....let me introduce you to my 4 year old Brynnleigh...

who ONLY wants to cheer.....and honestly does a pretty good job at it too.  At the ripe old age of 4 she is in her second season of cheer and her first season of competitive in doing stunts!
So yep, this Mama is eating her words and will proudly support her little cheerleader in this SPORT that she has chosen!  (But with that being said - I DO still need to find someone to help me with her hair and makeup)

Where oh where have I been???

Have you missed me????  I have missed blogging....seriously!  I think about it a lot, but thinking and doing are two completely different things.  I need one of those tape recorder thingys (am I dating myself here??) that will record what I say, type it and post it...oh and add some cute pictures of course! 

I have tried to schedule myself a time to do this and a time to do that but then I realize that I'm too scheduled and just throw it all away and live my life!  It may almost be  time for me to admit that I'm doing too much....I'm not ready yet...but maybe soon.  I mean I think I can do it all....isn't it normal to work full time an hour away, have 2 part time direct sales jobs, have two kids involved in multiple sports (O - soccer, baseball, and tae-kwon-do, B - dance, cheering, & little kicks after school) which of course I'm the team mom, and event planner for their teams??  Oh and I'm also training for a marathon and attempting those other motherly/wifey things....ya know, homework, dinner, cleaning....spending time with the hubs.  (well actually he cooks and cleans most of the time...but I still attempt to look like I'm doing it every now and then!)

So with all that said...I DO want to keep blogging...and I do want to give you something you want to read and relate the BOAT will be back up and running....I can't promise super long awesome posts all the time...but I can promise you a glimpse into my crazy life and give you some laughs along the way!!

Oh...and in case they never make it on here....I have written some awesome blog posts in my head....I mean can you imagine what goes through my head during an 18 mile run???  I swear I really need one of those tape recorder things...that would be multi-tasking at its finest!
