I love love love LOVE my really, I do!

Yesterday was a fun day. There are major diaper failures on the girls and boys beds the night before. Which makes us stuck at home while I try to get the bedding washed and dried by nap time. As I am putting the last sheet and blanket back into place I realize that Annie has fallen asleep on my bed. Shoot. Oh well. I decide to make lunch before attempting a nap with the others. When I go to pry the kids out of their cartoon lair...aka my room, Atticus is laying, on my bed, in a huge puddle of urine. HUGE. "Oh well," I think, "at least it is on Kenneth's side." cue karma. 30 minutes later Annie wakes up in a huge puddle of urine AND poop....on my side of the bed. Joy. Did I mention that I have just gotten all of their bedding back on their beds? Now on to the king size mess. I think I can have the comforter dried before my bedtime. Maybe. If I hurry. Kids!

This morning Gavin comes up behind me and says, "Mommy, you have a race track bottom."
Me: "What does that mean?"
Gavin: "That you really really look like a hippopotamus!"

And we were excited when he started talking!?!

I really really really love my really, I do!

I believe this is the first time I have ever gotten on the blog site as I can't remember how to do the password thing.

One day the fact that our houses smell like urine from time to time might be endearing to us:) Mommyhood is an adventure, isn't it?? You never know what you're going to find!:) Lots of fun:)!!! Your kiddos are growing so fast, really like weeds. Been wondering how you all are doing in Cali. I love to check in with the Barry's every now and then, I'm a big fan of your writing, so well put, and right on:) You really have a beautiful family, Meg! We'll check in later:)
