Yesterday I read one author's description of his marriage: he called it sweet chaos.
I love that!
And I feel it appropriately describes this season of my life......
We went out for a birthday dinner on Saturday night. Ryan and I met my parents at a local pizza place (Davanni's - our favorite). It was NOT what I had imagined Samuel's birthday dinner to be.
Samuel woke up Saturday morning with a cold. So by dinner time he wasn't feeling real good, wasn't very hungry and wasn't interested in sitting at the table in a restaurant.
Lauren wasn't interested in sitting quietly either (I ended up feeding her in the car in the parking lot).
Two crying kids. A disaster of a dinner table. Cramming food in our mouths in between trying to care for the kids.
It was tiring. It was crazy. It was memorable.
It is our life - sweet sweet chaos.
