Crazy Days


Things have been so crazy here this week. I am steadily marking things off of my to-do list, but there's a long way to go. Yesterday I went shopping for a few things with my SIL and nephew. I have completely forgotten what it is like to be on the go with a toddler. He is 20 months old and the cutest darn thing, but he is so heavy (33 lbs) just like Cade was. It brought back so many memeories of the "good 'ol days". This picture was taken in March. (Yes, he has a faux-hawk. Yes, it is adorable and gets him attention everywhere he goes.) When I finally made it home after carline, I laid on the couch totally exhausted. I couldn't figure out why I would be so tired, but then the memories returned of being so tired after a day with my babies that I couldn't even see straight! All I know is China had better light a fire under it, or there's no chance I'll be able to keep up with a toddler!! I'm not getting any younger over here!!
Today I have to work on some of my "piles" around here. I have piles everywhere! I finished the laundry room and the little desk in the kitchen. I still have a bowl in the kitchen filled to the brim with who-knows-what, the kitchen table and my closet. I am also going to work on the front porch. I need to get some hay, mums and pumpkins. I'm telling you, when this party is over, my house is going to look great!!
Bryce and Braden both came home with a very poor grade yesterday, so we have got to step it up with the studing and homework. Football sure puts a big cramp in the whole school thing. It's just hard to juggle it all. We were playing some baseball games too, but have decided it's just too much. We'll save the baseball for the spring.
Hope you're all having a great week. I'm off to work on that dang list.

That little nephew of yours is sure a cutie! Love the cheeks! Perhaps your little girl will be a little lighter than that....LOL....I think Sophie was only 32 pounds at her 4 year old check-up! She was a little easier to carry around at 20 months! :)

He is a doll & such a big boy!! Our sons were like that too; kinda hard on the arms!

Your nephew is adorable!!

Keeping up with a toddler is not easy....there are nights I am just counting the minutes until bedtime!!

Good luck with your list of to-do's....can't wait to see what you do with that beautiful porch!

We too struggle with the school work and sports....it is so hard to find balance!

I know what you mean with the homework. That's been a goal of mine to fit it in more with all of our after school events. The other night I went to bed mentally exhausted from the homework!!! I want them to enjoy doing other things, but wow it's tiring to fit it all in. Have a great party this weekend, wish I was there!!

Blessings,
