Who am I?

Hi, I'm Cameron (aka Iffy), a stay at home mother to 4 beautiful children. My family is my life! I am not crafty by nature....but I am learning =D I will share my experiences with you(good & bad) with crafts, DIY, cooking, and life. I say what's on my mind, and remain honest, it's just who I am. Love it or leave it =D So follow me and see my progress as I document my journey, and If All Else Fails....at least you have gained a friend and gotten some great tips or maybe learned something new along the way!

My Favorite Things Friday Link Party ~ #29 Real as Real Can Be....

Pin It
I feel like the older I get, the more complicated life has gotten, & rightfully so
with 6 people growing together under one roof. It's like a crock pot brewing 6 separate
flavors, each bringing their own uniqueness to the dish. Sometimes you question how well everything will
blend together in the end result, but after 8 hours on low you sit down to a dish that is definitely a keeper.
Well that's how I am feeling today. Although I am using a crock pot as a metaphor,
I am sure you probably know what I am saying. I am not the first person
to have a teenager, or a 7 year old who has perfected eye rolling & always tries to have the final word, nor 
am I the first person to have 2 little ones 15 months apart with a 2 year old who, without warning, can throw the mother of all tantrums with ear piercing shrieks that would put Mariah Carey to shame. 
What I am trying to say is that it's a whole other ballgame when it is all happening under one roof. 
I am not complaining, and these will be some of the things that we look back on when my children are grown & married, and possibly even with kids of their own, 
and laugh.
I hope there are plenty of awesome memories in there too! 
SOoooooooo with that being said, I know as a parent sometimes things pop up that are out
of your control & as a result cause you delay.  This can be anything from a last minute poopy diaper that
causes you to leave late for an appointment, weather, a nap that runs over, or just the
time it takes to gather everything you need for leaving the house.  Even as prepared as you
try to be, sometimes things happen that cause you delay.  It's OK & hopefully people understand
as long as you keep them posted.  
I know today is Saturday, and I'm posting My Favorite Things "Friday" Party but as I 
mentioned above, sometimes things happen that are out of your control......
(see there was a point to my rambling thoughts). Our internet was down yesterday
for no apparent reason, I mean it was beautiful outside so maybe someone knocked it out. I'm not sure but 
it is back to normal now & so it's time to party!

Just link up & have fun! Welcome to my party, please play nice & visit others too!
I would appreciate it if you post my button somewhere on your blog & help spread the word
about my party =D
I hope to see you back next Friday too! 
Much Love
