I have disappeared into a potty training, hockey mom black hole of hell. The day after my last post, Shel, my beloved (and helpful) husband left town for the weekend. A weekend that included 9 hockey games, 2 birthday parties, running the church nursery and a potty training two year old.
He came home to a wife on the brink of a nervous breakdown. And the next day my 17 month old decided - in fact demanded - to be potty trained. In case you wondered potty training a toddler and then potty training a SECOND toddler is not nearly as fun as it sounds.
And then Jayde started climbing out of her crib.
Oh and did I mention the 3 teenagers and 2 toddlers, and the thankfully easy tween? I won't even MENTION the 2 Jack Russells in this post and the case of the fence climbing, neighbour annoying, escape artist mutt who is supposed to be healing up her leg.
This, or some version like this, is what I come back to. Fully clothed IN THE SINK.
Life is back in full swing. I promise to be a better blogger this week.
If I don't strangle myself with toilet paper first.
You. Are. My. HERO!
Now...isnt it time for YOU to go out of town??? Alone? ;)
Lucky for you toilet paper is probably quite INeffective at strangling. You are amazing.
You are totally amazing. And as crazy as it probably was, it sounds so wonderful too. What an awesome family you have. :)
OMG I so needed that picture her in the sink, I laughed aloud and i so needed to laugh after the morning we had. I am sorry things are so busy but I love that your kids are being kids.
Jen, You are the most amzing mom! I am juggling 4 of my own and one little guy who visits 5 days a week for 10hrs a day and I am exhausted!How do you keep up? Where is "Jen" time?
You know, I'd love to post this across the damn universe! I recently quit my job to be a stay-at-home-mom, and am getting so much flack over "but really, what do you do all day?" and "you aren't going to work at all - you're doing nothing???". Cheers to you - I love to read about your well-managed chaos, your lovely kids and your amazing family.
