how about those numbers? you know, i have had SO many people ask me how the transition from two to three has been and today i've decided to share with the world what this woman is thinking...
here is the cold, hard truth of yesterday:
awake at 2:30 and again at 6:30 (that was a GREAT night).
began the morning sick with three sick kids.
rain came which means the dog can not stay outside (he digs holes).
one time out
four spankings (yes, we spank and would be willing to share our thoughts on this if you are offended)
three couch meetings to discuss eph 4:32 and phil. 2:14.
20 minute nap
allie's swim lessons packing list: towel, change of clothes, snacks, drinks, books, rain jackets, diapers, wipes, breast pump, and, of course, three kids w/ shoes (we forget shoes often).
20 minute drive in the pouring rain
three kids out of the car in the rain
swim teacher's response, "pool's closed."
three kids back in car
20 minute drive home w/ three crying and wet children
we'll stop there... some days are harder than others. despite the occasional insanity, we are so blessed by each of our kiddos. allie's independence, caleb's snuggles, and riley's easy temperament remind us that the Lord created each of them uniquely and purposefully. we love them... we love this life! we wouldn't trade it for anything!
