Reality Check

I may not be overwhelmed in quite the ways you imagined when it comes to raising 4 children, but I put together this little photo spread to show you a few things that might send me off of a cliff one of these days.....

First there are the flies... living this close to a farm, in a house that hasn't been lived in for most of recent history, has its downsides. There are two sitting on my laptop as I type.

Then there are diaper covers in 4 sizes (plus 2 more sizes no one is wearing right now)...and so many cloth diapers that I need an entire dresser just to store them in.

Photobucket

With diapers comes laundry. Lots of laundry. Every once in awhile I think I might be finished but then someone pukes or poops, or whatever it is that kids do to get their clothes so messy.

Photobucket

When the laundry is finished and put away... When the flies have all been captured in sticky tape or swatted or fed to the gecko... Then, there are the boxes. Lots of boxes.

Photobucket

I better get off the computer or we won't ever be ready to leave in three weeks!

I feel your pain. We've the realtor coming in six weeks and I'm running like mad to get everything done. We'd planned on the spring...but maybe now we'll go ahead and put it on the market. Good luck with packing and the move.

Moving blessing...
May you never lose a child's favorite toy...
May you realise you left the new house keys on the old house counter BEFORE you hit the road...
May the children sleep the entire drive...
May there be only smiles and laughs and no poops or vomits...
May you have second,third, forth, fifth and however many more winds to see you through...
May the journey to your new home be joyous and blessed and your old friends the support you need as you seek out new friends.
