Some days - like the last few weeks have been crazy stressful and downright ugly.
Can anyone vouch for that?
I work full time, I am finishing up my Master's in History (Military History), I have 4 kids, sell on eBay for extra money (we are currently following Dave Ramsey to get out of debt -- it has been life changing), and have several other things on my plate. My days are usually filled with starting off like Mary Poppins -- and by the end I feel like the Wicked Witch of the West.
This morning, the boys were up at 6:38 am. This was the first Saturday that we were able to sleep in, and they were both up before 7. It is almost 9 am -and they are laying in their beds ( I am hoping they take a nap)
The above picture reflects parenting accurately.
BUT - while I end up looking like Monday just hit me in the face with Barb wire - there are such positive moments.
Yesterday, the boys learned to play slapjack, Go Fish, and Old Maid. Stephanie and I played Speed for about an hour (I won all games -- btw) We have not laughed that hard in a long time. NO electronics, distractions, just good old family fun.
This blog was created for laughter, humor, and outlet to my crazy life - as it gets going, please be patient. You may find guest posts written by my children, reviews, give a ways, Pinterest fails, and other entertainment.
