So one of these days, I will totally write a post about what my life is like. It isn't a mystery that I struggle. I have 5 children for goodness sake. Life is a bit loud, and busy ;) (fyi, it is kinda a personal pet peeve when people talk about how "busy" they are...as if to imply that no one else really understands what the word means. Really? Busy? Aren't we all?)
Exhibit A: Look at the chair on the left will you. Yeah. We spill a lot of milk around here. A. LOT. Actually, we just spill. If it is liquid, it will eventually end up on the floor, at LEAST once a day. I think I need to invest in some more absorbent towels or something.
Exhibit B: yes, busy being ninja chess masters. Notice the walls are, in fact, painted, but the blue tape was not yet removed. I think it stayed up for a few months.
Exhibit C: I think I have mentioned this child before. He's "the middle child." Should I elaborate on this, or does the picture speak for itself?
Aww, look at them all setting together. And smiling, for the most part.
I have to say, I really wish I had one of these things with each of my babies. Baby wearing is the best thing ever. Eve is my cuddliest baby by far (and my others are big cuddlers). When she cries to get picked up, once she is in my arms, the first thing that she does is hug me. None of my other babies ever did that. She actually hugs me. I love her, I love holding her, and I love wearing her.
I am starting to get into the habit of taking more pictures of me along with my kids. I am trying to not become one of those people who only has selfies, but selfies were probably invented by a stay-at-home mom because who else would capture those special moments.
She was only a year and a half when this was taken. I need to resign myself to becoming one with the mess.
Me and my girls. This picture makes me so happy. Being a wife and mother truly makes me feel beautiful.
And this guy was busy making and flying kites.
