Jonah turned one month like three weeks ago and I have been meaning to post this one month shot since then.
That well-intended lag in time sums up my life with three kids pretty well.
As I type this Ambrose and Asher are playing/fighting/playing...etc. and Jonah will be content on the bed alone for about another minute so I better type fast.
I am ignoring the laundry to type this.
It's almost lunch time so I have to think about feeding the troops before meltdowns happen and I'm avoiding that to type this too.
(What's become of my life? I used to just be a selfish youngest child who did what ever she wanted! hahaha)
I used to blog at night when the boys were asleep, but I have a snuggle buddy who requires a lot of feeding at night now. And it's not Thomas. Sorry for the awkward clarification, but I just know some of you weirdos were wondering. :)
So, yes, I am just about as busy as I thought I would be with three kids. Busy busy busy.
But it's not bad. I can handle it. (I think I can I think I can I think I can.) The boys are healthy for the most part, sweet for the most part, hilarious, smart, surprisingly helpful, rascally (Asher), needing a lot of structure/instruction/activities over this long Winter break from school (Ambrose), and most of all very very hungry (Jonah) (ok all of them).
See you in another three weeks with the 2 months photo! (So optimistic!)
(Side note- Jonah started screaming while I was typing this and now Ambrose is snuggled up to him on the bed trying to get him to take a pacifier singing, "You'e such a sweet boy. You're such a good boy. I love you brother." And this, ladies and gentlemen, is what makes this hectic time so very sweet.)
