Mother of the Year Goes to.... Not Me

Every morning I go to the gym to exercise. I love it because I have a lot of friends there (it's my adult interaction for the day...hahah...but seriously...), endorphins are released, I feel powerful and strong....etc. Fast forward to about 10 minutes after I arrive home.

Kids are fighting over who grabbed the box of cereal first.

Tears are rolling down cheeks from, "Cameron looked at me in a mean way."

Fights are breaking out between who has to be the flippin' monkey in the middle...

You get the idea.

So pretty much all the good I do at 5:30 in the wee early morning hours gets completely undone. (Perhaps I should schedule my workouts to after the kids leave for school instead?)

Anyway, today was no different. The kids actually all got ready on their own really well without any fights. They had a good 20 minutes to kill before we had to leave for school. They decided to play a game (but not the blasted Monkey in the Middle game...No! No! I banned that game [and 'jinx&#…

Tenille Gets Hitched

Also while at Alta, I attended almost every school dance I could as soon as I turned 16. My first date was with Shawn Allman to prom my sophomore year. My life revolved around the dances. I figured if I didn’t get asked, I wasn’t popular or “cool” enough. Although high school was a lot of fun, it had its downsides, too. I hated all the cliques at school (even though I belonged to one, too). I dated a lot of losers (I really don’t know what I was thinking with some of them). And I was just a hothead. I’m glad that college humbled me a little.

It was also around this time when Tenille got married to Brad. She met him at BYU-Hawaii, and she didn’t even know they were dating until he proposed to her. (SERIOUSLY!). Their first kiss together was when he asked her to marry him. We all thought it was weird and too quick. Spence and I flew out to visit them. She took us kayaking, snorkeling, dolphin/whale watching, to the Polynesian Cultural Center, to the Dole plantation, to Matzumoto’s Ice Cream, to numerous beaches, the campus, and the grounds of the Hawaii Temple. It was a lot of fun, but Spence and I had a hard time liking Brad. He seemed too needy and pouty. He got upset a lot (like when Tenille and I beat him and Spence in a kayak race, or when he had to use green ketchup for his hotdog instead of red.) haha. It took us a few years to warm up to him.
