All I can think about right now is how snuggly my bed is. We started the day out around 6:45 this morning. We ran Dove to work around 7, came home got dressed and ate super fast. I ran them to "school", came home and started moving things and picking up 90% of the toys in our house to have the carpets cleaned. While that was going on I cleaned and unloaded/re-loaded the dishwasher. Took a quick shower, picked them up, ran to Wal-Mart, went to see and pick up Daddy, came home, played, cooked dinner, played some more, baths and now we are snacking and about to head to bed.

Do you see anything missing from the day's activities???

Hmmm...oh wait, that's right, there's no nap listed. Or as I like to call it, my "lunch break".

They've been going to bed around 10pm so I thought if they didn't nap they would go to bed early and get back on the right schedule. I hope.

It was fine, they are slightly(okay, kind of an understatement) grouchy and I am aching. But we still had a great day!

There was the sweetest moment at dinner when Lex turned to me and exclaimed "Delicious!!!" in response to the bite he had just taken. That was one of the proudest moments of my life. I thought I was about to cry and I'm still smiling hearing that little voice echo in my mind. Being a Mother is the most incredible thing I've ever done or will ever do. Thank you God for giving me this!

Well, Brody is fluttering his eyelids, slumping over, catching himself and redoing the process over again so we are off to dreamland.

Sweet dreams world.


P.S. Please feel free to follow this blog and/or comment, I'd love to hear from you!!!


Sarah said... you think the no nap thing is working?? I thought that with Luke too...but to no didn't work. We had to put the crib back up. *sigh* and we haven't moved him out of it yet. I hope it works for you so you all can get on a schedule again. The holidays always throw everything off. anyway..enjoy your cozy bed tonight!

Even tho I didn't have 3 at once like you did, having a newborn,a 1 yr. old, a 2 yr. old and a 10 yr. old wasn't easy either! Yeah, your cousins! I remember all the juggling acts a mom has to do and also all the love that comes with your children. Actually, they may be 19, 21, 22 & 29 now - I still do juggling acts with them! I can't wait for the day we can all get together again and I can hold your babies that I've only seen in pictures. Take care and keep blogging - I feel close to you when I read about your day. Love,
Aunt Shari
