The Last 2

i'm blaming my blog silence on tekoa's last 2 molars. she's been a train wreck. but praise Jesus these are the LAST 2!

i've been in a whirlwind of catching up on cleaning and organizing, and buying school supplies and school clothes :( i can't believe it's only 3 weeks away. i'm not ready.
okay, most days i'm not ready.
-i just broke the news to shaeya that at her new school she can't wear sweat pants or "soft pants" as she calls them- she's pretty much devastated. so nice not to have to fight that battle this year, but so hard to find time to buy them their whole new uniform wardrobes.

i just feel like i'm so BUSY. i never wanted to be so busy doing things that i don't ever get to just be with my kids, but i feel like i spend so much time on their physical needs - and on the house- that a lot of the heart issues get passed over. how do you fix that?

today i deep cleaned bathrooms and the kitchen, cleaned out a cupboard in the laundry room, finished up some work on photo albums, pried a screaming tekoa off the shelves in the fridge, did 2 loads of laundry, bathed the baby twice- why doesn't the poop ever stay in the daiper?- scrubbed all the ink from an inkpad off tekoa's face and hands, broke up 2 huge fights, pried a plate full of brownies out of tekoa's hands while she screamed that she was "keeping them safe!!!", fed the kids lunch and then recleaned the kitchen, and then washed all the baby magic off of tekoa's arms and hands......
you get the picture......busy.

i had a night out with my cousins the other night, and i used that time to organize pictures and get them in albums, scrub the half polish off my toenails, and i had kari give me a (long overdue) haircut. they were all making fun of me, and i said- do you KNOW what it's LIKE at my house?!?

.......i KNOW it'll get better when those teeth come through, i just KNOW it :)
