A day in the life

A (Fri)day in the life of a mom with two under two...

I showered and dressed with my daughter and son in the bathroom

I discovered a little too late that Lauren ate part of the library's Mr. Brown Can Moo Can You?

I discovered a little too late that Samuel is more interested in eating the washable Crayola markers than coloring with them

I cleaned puke off of an Easter bunny because it's my son's favorite stuffed animal

I wiped countless runny noses

I changed four poopy diapers

I put a crib sheet on my head over and over again because it made my son laugh

I ate my lunch (leftover pancakes) at 1:30 while standing at the stove preparing our dinner

I was up from 2-3 a.m. with my daughter (trying to figure out why she was awake and crying)

I observed my son placing my nipple shields on his chest like he sees mommy doing (if you don't know what those are just skip to the next one)

I resigned to the fact that all four members of my family ate dinner at different times tonight over the course of one hour

I heard myself say, "Samuel don't eat _______ (chap stick, deodorant, shaving cream, lotion, marker, whatever that dried piece of food is on the floor)

All in a day's work...I don't love every moment, but I love my life and my blessings more than words can say.
