So much has been going on it’s hard to keep up these days! Is this what a ‘normal’ summer, with three kids, is really like? I haven’t really had one of those yet … I don’t think last summer counts as ‘normal’.
Jaden started summer school this week. Yesterday, he came out of his room proudly displaying the outfit he chose to wear. This morning I had to coax him a little to get dressed. But he comes home super happy and proud of what he is learning, so I say summer school is going great so far!
Doug left this morning for his second week of traveling (in a row) for work. Things are extra crazy when he isn’t home. But we also get to bend the rules a little bit more when he isn’t home … I suppose it all evens out.
I just about ran out of the house screaming today because it got so crazy. The triplets woke up from their naps and (like usual) Logan was naked. I swear I’m raising nudist because these babies won’t keep their diapers on! I got Logan re-dressed and we headed out to the living room where Jaden had built a fort out of the coffee table and some blankets. That only entertained the triplets for 2.5 minutes. The next thing I knew, Logan had dragged a stool from around the kitchen island to the other side of the room, over to the drawers; climbed up on the stool and opened the drawer to pull out a HUGE bread knife. Then proceeded to laugh and run away from me while I chased after him. Looks like I”m going to have to re-evaluate the contents of my drawers tomorrow.
On top of that all happening, Weston wouldn’t stop crying and Jaden kept asking me if he could download a free app on my iPad. My head just about burst!
Never fear though … I distracted the babies by pulling out my chapstick. That’s right … chapstick! They sat quietly while they willed me to put on some chapstick. Silly freaking babies!
I know I’ve been slacking on the blogging … but life is super crazy busy these days. I have a hard time answering the phone or returning emails, let alone finding time to blog. But I think of my blog family often and wish I had more time to myself. There have been a lot of spiritual moments that I’m anxious to sit down and share with you. They are coming! I WILL make time (once Doug is home).
Love to you all! xoxo
being a mom comes first! We your readers understand! sounds like a fun summer with a house of boys!
chapstick? Awesome! I have a “lotion” little man myself. Kept him distracted in the ER for hours. 🙂
