Well, today he wanted to attempt to head to the bus in the same manner- footed jammies with no shoes. Obviously, we, as adults, know how that would've turned out. Soggy, wet, dirty jammies. Those jammies just aren't made for the rain. So, O came up with a quick compromise between jammied feet and shoes- Isaac's rain boots!
Tada! He's all prepared.
When some one asks me how it is going with 4 kids, I almost always tell them "its great!" It is. Really, it is. I wouldn't even think
Its not the people themselves. Its the chores that come with 6 people. Its the laundry that has to be done all.of.the.time because I not only have a family of 6, I have an overly spitty baby who is an incredibly big DIVA who requires several outfits each day (not to mention the ones that E and I require from just holding her. E changed outfits twice on Monday after holding little E for only 15 minutes.) Its the dishwasher that has to be run every day, the trash that has to be taken out every day, the toilets that need cleaning every day, the mopping that needs to be done, you guessed it, every day!
Its not surprising that sometimes I feel like I'm in over my head a little bit. That I'm not quite equipped for the job of running this house. Like maybe I'm wearing footed pajamas to the bus stop in the rain.
I wanted to end this post with a comment about how God is my rain boots, he helps me be prepared. He is and he does. But, with out all of the fluff, I want you all to know that even happy-love-my-big-family-mommas get overwhelmed with stuff. Even happy-i-love-to-do-all-sorts-of-craft mommas get too much on their plates. And, sometimes, its my own dang fault if I end up with soggy pajama feet.
