Pachelbel Bedtime

Wednesday, October 10, 2007

You know you're a CRAZY mom if . . .

* You let your 2 year old wear hot pink cowboy boots with jeans, shirt, AND a dress (none matching) to the grocery store and don't even blink an eye at how weird that probably looks.
* Your 2 year old keeps running away from you in the grocery store so you throw her over your shoulder like a sack of potatoes and still keep shopping while she's screaming.
* You threathen that the Halloween Monster will come and take the kids' eyeballs if they don't just CLOSE YOUR EYES AND GO TO SLEEP !
* You let your 2 daughters share underpants because you cannot keep up with all the dang laundry!
* You're so hungry because you didn't have time to eat lunch in between screamings so you sneak some (okay- a lot) of Baby Puffs from your 8 month old.
* When people ask if you're running a day care and if you have any more space available you say, "No, they're all mine and I am so happy that they are" with a proud smile.

And the winner is . . .

Not Cory. He did finish his half marathon gracefully, though. For not training very much he sure did great. Heck better than I could do. I would have just tried hitch hiking. Or throwing my ankle chip into some other runner's pocket and then claiming that time as m y own. That's more my style of running. It was really nice to be in the nice, brisk, cool air of the mountains. And on Monday I did something really fun. I got to go with just Ainslee to a pumpkin patch with her preschool class. Yes, it was muddy and rainy and cold. But my heart was warmed with love for that little girl. I hardly get to spend time with just her. Somehow Cory and I will have to schedule more one-on-one time with the girls. So here are a few pictures of the pumpkin patch.
