Boy Mom BlogHop!

"I'm hungry!"  (words I hear all the time)

"Watch your aim! Keep it in the water!"    (words my boys hear from me all the time)

Welcome to my blog!

I am so excited to participate in the blog hop, hosted by the MOB Society.

I am mom to 3 boys. :)
They are my boisterous blessings.
First came Aidan, our 7 year old:
Brennan is 4:
And the newest addition to our family, Cillian (almost 6 months):
A, B & C.
We didn't start off thinking "Let's name our kids in alphabetical order", because let's face it, some names I just love, and going in ABC order, well, we're not going to have 20something kids.

I'm outnumbered, but I like to joke and remind my husband that being the only girl means I should be treated more like a princess. Ha!

While the thought of a daughter does put a smile on my face, I thank God for giving my husband & I these boys to raise into gentlemen.
The world needs more God-centered gentlemen, and that's my goal in raising these boys.

My husband is a wonderful example of a gentleman, the hands-on dad that will often cook pancakes for dinner with his boys.
Patrick (my husband) works in Marketing, and I stay home with our kids (though we're on the go most of the time).

Our days are filled with creative sound-effects, Legos, trains galore, Mario & Luigi, swords made from straws...we're living the life.

I'm Sharon.
I enjoy browsing recipes & menu planning.
I am a lifetime member of Weight Watchers.
I love to dance, especially to 80's music.
I usually love to work out, incorporating Jillian Michaels dvds, power walking, and sculpting.
God humbles me every day on this parenting journey, revealing to me my weaknesses and always offering love and mercy.

On to the fun stuff that the MOB Society suggested.
With my 7yo we love reading:
The Magic Tree House, Cam Jansen, The Kids of the Polk Street School, and our current book is Super Fudge. On his own he loves reading about space, the planets, etc.

My 4yo loves Thomas. For the longest time, his favorite bedtime story was Llama Llama Mad at Mama.

Family Favorites:

Caps for Sale: A Tale of a Peddler, Some Monkeys and Their Monkey Business
As I type, my older two are running around with an orange sheet, pretending to be some mode of transportation. A LOUD mode. 
Consequently the baby is now awake, eager to eat. 
Off I go! Thanks for stopping by. :)
***Coming back to could I forget!
One of my favorite books is Boys Should be Boys by Meg Meeker. Wonderful, wonderful book.

Hi there, we love a lot of the exact same books! And I also enjoy Jillian and most things fitness (note I say most - not big into spinning for instance). Nice to "meet" you through the blog hop!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!

I've just started working out a few weeks ago using the Biggest Loser Ultimate Workout for the Kinect (I knew buying video game systems would be productive some day...) Lost 8 1/2 lbs. so far! I don't think I could take 100% Jillian, though. (In the game, one son tried to do the workout wrong just to make Virtual Jillian yell at him, but she didn't :-) )

Had to laugh at the line your boys hear from you! I remember those days!

Oh, Cam Jansen -- how could I have forgotten him!

I'm visiting from the MOB Society Blog Hop. It is nice to meet your beautiful family. Your boys are so cute! I haven't heard of some of the books you mentioned so we'll have to go to the library soon. Come visit us some time.
