Anyone want them?

Argh- these kids! Tonight was one of those nights. Cory is out of town for 5 nights. It's just me... and these kids. Seriously, if I could have hired a nanny I would have done it in a heartbeat!!! Isn't it funny how you could be so in love with your kids one second and literally the next you are so stinkin' mad?!?! How do you describe that emotion to someone? What would you call that emotion? mave (mad-love mix)? Luckily I got the 2 feet long royal blue marker off the carpet and the scribbles off the bookshelf. I guess Avery decided she wanted to "do homework" too. I also successfully scrubbed the glue off our stainless steel refrigerator while at the same time scratching it (nice). Spencer did that one. Ashley led the kids in a craft while I fed Trevor. Spencer wanted to put his pumpkin picture on the fridge so he used glue. So I guess in a way it was really innocent and cute... And terrible for the fridge! Needless to say- I stocked up on my "get through it" drug- Cherry Coke!

I read this while drinking my diet coke after a day of tending to half the number of children in your household! :) I don't know how you do it, Jessie!! You are amazing and they are lucky to have you!!!

P.S. I'm all for "things" going well and we can hire a communal nanny. We'll send her back and forth, as needed! :)

Just keep telling yourself "Opposition in all things, Jessie. Opposition in all things" :)
