Yep its true

Reality sets in rapidly around here all the way from short, interrupted blog posts to the massive amount of time it takes to get all four boys anywhere near the door.

It became quite clear yesterday that a shower was out of the question. I undid the tangled mess of a braid and attempted to brush it out. What made me laugh was not the frizzy, wild mop that sat on my head but the thought that ran through my frazzled mind: "Hey...freaky looking models pull off this look all the time. Maybe I can too!"

Rational thinking soon overtook my brain again but I did get a kick out the of fact that, for a moment...in the midst of crying babies and wild preschoolers...the thought seriously crossed my mind.

Yikes!

So if you see me sporting this look, do not be concerned for my psychological state. I just had "one of those" mornings.

Oh, oh, oh, I know what you mean!!!! It takes me a good hour to get everyone out the door (5, 3, 2, and 9 mos!), not counting eating. :) Just packing snacks and diapers and getting everyone dressed. It's something. But what a blast. :)

I have not had a chance to read your posts since you came back yet, but I will delay no longer in saying WELCOME HOME AND CONGRATULATIONS! So glad you had an amazing trip and your beautiful family is doing well. Perhaps we can connect one of these days.
