You drive meee crazzzzyy!!

I realized it had been some time since I have updated y'all on my baby girls! Since this is a Runnning/Mommy Blog, it's time to see how they have grown! Little Missy, will be 7 next week! Holy smokes, this kid can feel free to stop growing now...I can't handle her getting bigger, she made me a Mommy and as much as I understand her, we also argue frequently. I see so much of myself in her, Handsome likes to frequently refer to her as "Little Erica", yes I know we are both the perfect combination of Pure Sass/ and Sweet :)
This photo was taken at her last dance competition it both makes me crack up and tear up!! She's so big! I am a proud, she lights up the stage, and our lives! My sweet girl so much to say! Itty Bitty, will also be celebrating a birthday this Month!! 5! Holy smokes she will be off to Kindergarten in the fall and that my friends is just scary! She is such a goof ball, all though she doesn't always know her limits! She has always been my Moody girl and I think she always will be! She confuses me and makes me laugh in the same five minutes, nearly daily!
Also from the last dance competition! This peanut rocks everyone's world! Almost everyone we speak too cannot believe she will be five, she still wears size 2t, she is a mini, mini, veracious tiger! I wouldn't have her any other way tonight she was showing me gangham style while I was making dinner! Hilarious! and never to be left out Mini Monster, just turned 2 in May! This chick is off the chain.... the sweetest baby in the world has turned into the silliest, sometimes very difficult, but always keeps me on my toes toddler! With a larger than life personality, she may be the 3rd baby but she always demands attention!
Watch out she hits, and bites! and then will give you the sweetest kisses you ever wanted! Thanks for listening to my bragging, aren't they cute! Here they are dressed as "I wanna be just like Dad for fathers day!"

I Never came back......

I always leave my children with "Mommy will always come back" not to be all terminator like and creep them out in an "I'll be back" kinda way but just as a reassurance that I would never leave them deliberately for any reason....EVER! But, when it comes to blogging I can't say that I make the same commitment! I left you all hanging and since that last post was almost an entire year ago, I think the point is moot.....I didn't finish the stupid race I was on crutches for 5 weeks and I am still rehabbing the injury 11 months later, 9 of those months I spent seeing a physical therapist! You guys get it, and I won't go into the obnoxiously long details, to keep it short and sweet, I was frustrated I was mad, and I gave up! I gave up on running, eating healthy and being physically active. I haven't been at or in a race since. I could blame it on a million things, but when I get right down to the heart of it all I know it was just me, not my lack of time, or 3 busy kids, or a husband who is also in the midst of training plans too, it was my mentality and the fact that with the leg injury I had let my toughness go. But, like a dog, my body always comes back begging for more! I want to Run, TRI, and be a part of the community that comes along with it all. I just have not wanted to put in the work to over come a major setback. Until now..... So here I am at the keyboard, stating to the world, that tomorrow it is back on a training plan ( I have actually been building up to one) and back to a plant based diet. So in the spirit of it all I am living Fat Tuesday up to it's fullest! I have missed reading blogs and hearing from all of you! We have sooooo much to catch up on but for now I will leave you with..... "I'll be BACK" All terminator like and everything :)
