NOT a Wordless Wednesday

I thought about going wordless today, but that usually doesn't work well for me and since I've been MIA from posting on my blog the last couple days I figured it would pretty much be an outright lie for me to title this Wordless Wednesday.

I've spent the last week and a half sweetly cuddling with my 3 resting and recuperating children who lived together in perfect harmony taking temps, giving meds, putting in movies, wiping noses, applying cold washcloths to foreheads, washing off morning eye gunk, holding sleepy, coughing baby, pulling out hair (my own), breaking up arguments (constantly), trying to not let the house go to the pigs...all the glamorous parts of my job. I would like to say that I handled everything with complete love, tenderness, and grace, with no moments of frustration, but I did have them.


So not perfect.


So glad I'm forgiven. By my Savior and my children.

So hope they remember more of the tenderness and less of the frustration...

Still so content and thankful for this time and role in my life.

So wouldn't trade this for anything in the world. I so love my children.

So...eventually I'll get caught up on some of the posts I'm behind on, but until then I'll leave you with this....




"nobety can but mama lincon and Daddy Emma you can com in if you need to tell me somthing but you can not play in my room"

Apparently the usual "Keep Out!" that many brothers use, wasn't concise enough.

Just in case you were wondering...

Yes, my hubby and I laughed our heads off (when he wasn't looking). No, he wasn't allowed to put it up. Our thoughts were, at least it didn't say she couldn't come in AT ALL. Like all good big brothers he left it open that she could come in if she needed to tell him something. Because he, of course, couldn't miss out on the really important stuff. Just looking out for his interests.

And I'm sure glad Lincon was allowed in, since it's his room too and all.

On a totally unrelated note...I'm working on a little something for April 30th. Any guesses on what and why?????

That's rich! And sorry to hear about the yukky crud.

We have strep in this house. And another one came home today complaining of a headache.

Ick.

So, April 30th? A blogging anniversary perhaps? I think you are finding words just fine (in reference to an earlier tweet)..
