Life is pretty good right now. Lots of things are going right. We’ve all been sick for about three weeks (Allan and I think we’ve all had the flu) but we’re handling it well and pushing on through and having fun anyway.
I’d like some sleep, but even being tired I’m going to soak up the absolute craziness that is having four little kids. Life will never be so chaotic and crazy fun as it is right now. I am going to miss it so much!
I mean, I change at least 10 diapers a day, I make meals constantly, the dishes are literally never ending, even for an hour (and our dishwasher is broken so it’s all by hand, baby!) I’ve coughed enough the last month to last a lifetime, my back is killing me from carrying around a baby and toddler so much and the laundry breeds at night, but… it’s SO GREAT. I have so many people to love on every single day. 5 of them! Right here in my house. Smiles and laughter and cuddling and their little voices. I love it!
Allan stayed home from work. He was on a conference call meeting in the front room so to keep the noise level down I took the older girls outside while the little two slept and we did our school in the yard.
