A Math Equation:

4 girls partying from 4-7:30 + one sick mom + 2 doctors appointments for 2 kids this morning + one "emergency" visit to said doctors to "discuss" results + NO ONE to help out = One stressed out mom who has no idea how the heck she is going to get EVERYTHING done when she is throwing up and is so shakey she can barely walk.

Results to follow.

Over-Exposure to Pure Awesomeness!

Anessa will be turning 9 on Thursday! I can't believe how big she has gotten! She has gone from this:

To this:

She also got a new bike for her birthday! We gave it to her on Sunday because Mitch wasn't going to be able to make it up on her big day.

The reaction:

Proud new owner:

Happy Birthday Anessa! We love you so much!

Other things going on in the Bennett household:

Peyton is doing so well in gymnastics! I've had a couple of his coaches approach me telling me that he has a lot of talent, especially for someone who has never done gymnastics before *cue Olympics theme music here*. I hope he continues on with it.

Cohen is doing great! He's using a lot of his words in conjunction with sign language, so we are finally able to tell what he wants/needs most of the time. We still have a lot of melt downs when he gets frustrated, but they are few and far between. Great job, Cohen!

Married for 7 years.

Today Mitch and I will have been married for seven years, and even though we have had our share of ups and downs, I wouldn't trade it for anything. He's my best friend and I couldn't have chosen a better father for my children. He's supported me through family troubles and listened to me when I've been an irrational mess. We have done so well with the hand that we were dealt; I don't think many other couples could have survived going through what we have gone through, and it has only brought us closer. We still love to wrestle and laugh at nothing. I love you Mitch. I would do it all over again!

Love you, babe!
