I'm late, I'm late, I'm late!!!
This is my life these days. I'm so easily distracted. Between the needs of the family and my own desire to read, write and on occasion get the house feeling like a home... seriously, when can I have nice things again?! <sigh>
Anyway, school starts on Monday. That's one back but still two at home. Just one more year. I know, I know, I shouldn't wish their days away, but honesty I'm not a good little kid mom. I like older kids. I like talking to them, teaching them, playing with them. These little guys are so stinkin' needy with their demands and destruction and... okay that's most people.
But still, I have big plans when they start school. In the meantime I have one year to prepare them for kindergarten. So this year we'll work on colors, shapes, numbers and the alphabet. And the all important sitting still for more than 15-minutes... and not just when eating. ;)
But this last month has been fun with all 3 at home and somewhat relaxing. Okay not relaxing at all, but when Girl Scouts, Tae Kwon Do and carting kids back and forth 5-days a week starts back up I'll be longing for the lazy days of summer.
Last weekend was the twin's 4th birthday party. Only 7 kids so it was manageable, but there was still crying and fighting. Mostly Marshall not wanting to share his toys while the girls did great. Boys are so territorial. ;) But then Mercy cried for who knows what reason. Again, older kids, I get them. Little ones still make me scratch my head.
|"Don't touch my stuff man!"|
|"Happy birthday to me! ...and you."|
|Marshall was excited, Mercy... not so much.|
|...and then he blew her candles out. <sigh>|
|A new cupcake and candles still didn't make her happy. <double sigh>|
|...and then it was his turn to cry. Nani to the rescue.|
The husband was busy making a few new pieces for our Etsy shop. This is my new favorite. One is wavy, the other swirly. Love them both but the swirly has my heart right now. ;)

Oh, and I cut a foot of hair off. Why? Cause it's been 5-years of long hair. I like long hair, but when 90% of the time I pull it up it's time to cut it and do something fun.
