My Daily Ramblings...

My little rug rat...

Whew. I hit the ground running this morning. I was up at 2am for Sophia's breathing treatment and accidently slept in this morning. I woke at 8:15 and needed to give Sophia another treatment, give her oral meds, feed her rice cereal so she wouldn't gag up the meds, fix everyone breakfast, get dressed, change 3 diapers (2 Sophia-1 Isaac) and get out the door by 8:50 at the latest. We were late.LOL I think I did pretty good anyway. I think the kids were only late by a few minutes and Allison said that the class hadn't even started.

Once, I dropped Allison and Genevieve off for P.E., I came home and got everyone else ready for the day. It was also time for me to dig out the 6-18month old toys out of the garage. Sophia has been getting more mobile and wanting a little more excitement than her rattles were giving her. I found 3 bins in the garage that kept mostly Isaac and a little Sophia busy for most of the morning.

Mess? What mess?

I put Sophia to sleep, had Jon watch her and went to pick up Allison and Evie. They were wet and covered in whipped cream. I put Evie in the bath in my room, took my shower for the day and Allison was going to class so she stayed wet. Well, Sophia didn't wake in time for the older kids class so Allison graciously offered to stay with her and let Jon go by himself. It was so nice, since Sophia is still very sick and I really didn't think waking her was a good idea. I took Jon to class and Allison took a shower.

A clean but sunburned Allison...

A clean Evie...
After all that running around, I almost forgot to pick Jon up! Crisis averted. I was only a few minutes late and Jon never noticed. He was too busy cleaning up from the water and whipped cream. He showered once he got home and everyone was clean, except Isaac.LOL I guess I need to give him a bath just to be able to say that we were all clean on the same day.LOL

Do you think we might be related?

Maybe some day I'll be able to say that we were all clean and had our hair brushed on the same day. Nah, that's just pushing it. lol

Wow, Lisa, what a busy day! How far do you have to take the kids for the PE class? I wish we had something similar here, but we are in sticksville and have to drive so far to do most things.

It's not too far. Almost within bike-riding distance. I would guess about 4 miles. When we were relocating to this area, we mapped out everything there was to do, along with area churches. Then we only looked for a house in that general area. We are very close to just about everything.

I do wish we had more land, but with sick littles I'm also happy that we're close to doctors.

I'd love to have all four seasons like you do!

You may have noticed that mine are not ALL clean and properly groomed at the same time either...I try....someday. ::snort::

WOW... what a busy day! Isn't it nice to have older ones to help with the younger ones!

I have told you before that even when I had two kids -- Holly was 4, Trevor under a year, we made it out of the house once before noon. One time. I'm pathetic!

Lisa in Jax said...


LOL! I'm sooo glad I'm not the only one. I do try but there is only so many hours in a


I'm not sure how I'd be able to do so much without the older kids.


I was the same way with my first two. Just think how easy it'd be with Holly and Trevor helping. Piece of cake!lol
