I survived..

Well I survived the Friday child swap. It really was not that bad. I thought it was going to be awful after I saw the state the kids and buddy's mom were in Thursday when I picked up! No naps, dirt everywhere (they dug up the back yard), and toys everywhere. She had the rough first day. I got the milder second day I guess. We did an art project, played on the slip and slide, made brownies, and I got them all to nap for two hours at the same time. Yep, all four asleep at the SAME TIME!! I got the bathroom cleaned, kithchen cleaned and a couple of loads of laundry done..and some lunch and two crossword puzzles attempted.
I was pretty proud.

I was pretty tired.

I forgot how bad my back hurt when I carried babies around.

I forgot how to feed a bottle to a baby (I nursed).

I realized how much a baby girl is needed in this house.


So, I am fighting a migraine today... could it be backlash from yesterday? I don't think so. Okay, probably!!

You need a baby girl?
I'd like you to stop and think very carefully about that statement and realise exactly what you'd be letting yourself in for.

awww! You are amazing to get 4 little ones to nap for 2 hours at the same time.

Definitely trophy worthy! )
