Cute boys


The girl I ordered the boys aprons from wanted a few pictures to put on her site. I broke the camera out for a minute and took these. A picture of all 3 is pretty much impossible. Poor Becks is really sick and he did not want to cooperate. You can see my little stars here.




Sometimes being a Mom is so hard. Honestly you give it all up.

Everything.

I'm not saying you don't get good things back but I haven't had a spare minute in weeks. My day today: Teach joy school, feed lunch, hold Becks because he wont be put down, clean up after joy school, take Davis to Gymnastics, take Caleb to Karate, take Caleb to baseball practice, do dinner all by myself because John is on a church assignment. Not to mention that today we get to do it all while making accommodations for Caleb's class stuffed monkey. I got to make a stuffed monkey lunch when I didn't even get to eat breakfast. I never thought I would be jealous of a dumb stuffed animal.

Its nonstop 7 days a week. I'm so tired. I know exercise will help me feel better, Ive been trying to go for a run for 2 weeks. Still no luck.

Seriously when do I have time to shower let alone run!?! My hair has needed to be cut for over a month. I haven't even had time to make an apt let alone make the time to do it!

The calling of a mother is to always be last, I accept that. Its just hard some days.

I know I will never look back and regret that I made this choice but still sometimes I just want to feel all put together.

Maybe tomorrow.

Amen! You wonder how people have so many kids! I have days that I feel this way with ONE kid... which is why I am nervous for #2's arrival.

At least tomorrow we get to go out to dinner! Woohoo! Something to look forward to.

Ok... I TOTALLY love how all the women who have replied on your post is agreeing with you and telling you are a wonderful mother (which you are!). Then I read down and your Dad said "Great Picture of the boys". Sorry to point this out Uncle Larry, but WOW! That confirms my thoery that men don't listen! Or at least they just want to pretend that there is no problem! Too perfectly funny.

First of all, I absolutely LOVE the boys aprons and hats!
Second, I totally hear ya on the whole busy thing, spring seems to be the worst too. It seems we are hardly ever home...and a home that looks like a tornado went through it. The things we do for our kids, I know I wouldn't change a thing :)
