Our life is full of wonderful, chaotic, blessed, hysterical, insane, magical, sad, scary, sweet, mind boggling, moments. While balancing life with 3 cherubs, parents, sisters, BIL, In-laws, 1 teaching career, and many good friends; I find that our life is moving far toooo fast. It is important to cherish and record the moments as we consistently try to balance our scale (God forbid I make a photo album)! MB

Lost and Found

I have lost my ability to be sane and happy right now. I am feeling overwhelmed with caretaking responsibilities (house, kids, parents, job) and its seemed to all have piled up so high over the last 5 days, the pile has tumbled onto to hubby & I.

I just went to the grocery store with all 3 cherubs (I know, enough said. This feat should never be attempted if you are not in a patient mood). Within seconds of hitting aisle 1, cherub 2 was starting to throw mini-tantrums. By the cereal aisle, he was a maniac. Demanding things, telling me off if I wouldn't let him get things. Ummm, who are you? My mother would have LEVELED me if I spoke to her so harshly and demanded things. Needless to say, at 5 yrs old, he sat in the carriage for the next 6 aisles.

Once home and I told them they couldn't go to their friend's house tonight unless they all napped. So at 4:45pm (that is right, PM) they are all in bed. I don't even care how this will affect me at 10:30pm when they are all wired for sound. At this point, I need them to give me a reprieve so I can visit the lost and found box to find my humor, smile, and sanity. Otherwise, hubby will be putting me in this straightjacket for sure.

Yeah, I'm with ya. Many a times I've put my brood to bed after 4! And I still manage to get them in bed by 9. They can go to sleep or not, I just need the break! :) Tomorrow's a new day! :) I hope you got to take a break (maybe a nap yourself?) while they were napping!
