So I've been told, more then once or twice, that I should start a blog. I've started one in the past but never really stuck with it because I wasn't really sure what I should be writing about. But I figure I'm just going to let my CRAZY, but oh so cherished, life as a stay-at-home mom be the inspiration for this blog. As a mom of 4 kids ages 7, 4,1 and 5 months...I'm giving myself about 2 weeks of actually keeping up with this blog before I give up simply due to lack of time.
Soooooo....here's to proving myself wrong! ;)
Now...what to write about? Well most likely anyone and everyone reading this will already know me so I'll skip to typical boring Bio stuff most blogs start off with. Most of the people that have told me that I could blog have said so after reading comments off of my Facebook statuses. So just to give you an idea of what my day-to-day life is like I'm going to copy my facebook status from a few weeks back cause not only will it show you how funny, crazy my life can get it will also give me a chance to copy and paste something for my first blog entry because as we speak the Indians (my kiddos) are currently plotting their attack as I've now been sitting at the computer for more then 10 whole minutes straight, and this cowgirl needs to circle up the wagons! ;)
This was taken from my facebook status on Sept 9th 2013:
This place is like a madhouse today...it's just one thing after another for some reason today. lol For example while trying to get the lunch dishes cleaned I noticed the puppy, Lucy, got ahold of a crayon and had it chewed into a million pieces under the table. While cleaning that up Eli (my 4 year old) comes over to me crying and saying he doesn't know why but the toilet water just won't stop running out of the toilet. I run in there, unclog the toilet and start cleaning up that mess only to come out and find Charlie ( my 1 year old) standing on top of the kitchen table pouring out Jeremiah's (my 7 year old) glass of apple juice all over the table. So while cleaning up that mess Peppa decides to fly down from his perch and Lucy starts chewing on him like a chew toy. So I try to rescue the bird while Lucy is chasing him all around the kitchen. Peppa finally flys back up to his perch and before I can go back to cleaning up spilt apple juice I notice Vivi(my 5 month old), who has been contently playing on the floor on her play mat has puked and must have rolled her head all around in it so now she is in need of another bath. Then throw in me breaking up a few fist fights/angry wrestling matches between the boys and you have just a hint of what the last 20 minutes of my day have been like...and this has pretty much been how the whole day has been. lol I love my life but today is one of those days were bedtime can't get here fast enough! lol
