Just trying to have a little faith after the past few weeks. Pick your poison from my house, STREP, VOMITS, COLDS or a COUGH. It's hard enough to balance work and being a mom and wife, but then throw in sickness and life just becomes even harder. When I asked my mom how I am supposed to do this, she said the best thing ever, "You are doing it honey!" She is right, I need to stop thinking that I am not doing it because I am. Yes it is crazy but with the help of my husband we are doing ok. Our kids still manage to feel loved and get plenty of hugs. Charlie turns in all his homework. Mary Kate almost ran out of underwear but Daddy came to the rescue. The dog is fed and happy. We have dinner at the table every night. Lunches are packed everyday. I am teaching hands-on technology enhanced lessons. My lesson plans are done.
I just need to focus on the things that are getting done rather than the less than perfect Martha Stewart house that I live in but love! Sigh....
So now it is time to get our Christmas decorations out and share with you a few funny things my kids have said.
Mary Kate told Mimi that her Nana lives in a "catalogue house". Mimi said, "no silly, a log house". Mary Kate said, "no Mimi, a catalogue house".
Mary Kate calls skunks, "stunks"
Charlie asked the other day, "If homework is work, why don't I get paid for it?"
When Charlie was vomiting in the middle of the night for the third time. He realized that he was going to miss his Christmas concert. He tried to convince me that he was not sick. He said, "I think it is just a growth spurt mommy. My tummy is growing."
Oh yeah, and my title is Faith:
One because I do need to have more faith.
Two I am in love with this new singer Paloma Faith, check her out. The best songs are Just Be and Picking Up the Pieces
