I am AMAZED at how much we have to remember. Ugh. There are the bills and when they are due. There are appointments and whether we rebooted the laundry this morning. There are the MANY rashes to keep track of and treat. What is for dinner? I don't know. What week is it? Is everyone keeping track of their responsibilities? Have I reviewed everyone's memory work? Probably not. Have I done reading and spelling with the kids who need extra help? Have I gone to the bathroom lately? (sorry, but I do actually have to think about that every once in awhile?). Have I eaten much today? How about my vitamins? Has my allergy kid taken care of his allergy meds? (Usually not). Did I fill out the 4-H papers yet? No. Have I returned people's phone calls? Have I checked the babies diaper lately? Have I said anything to Benjamin in the last 24 hours? (I do have to remember him as he is a house flopper - happy and content to entertain himself - doesn't seek attention......ugh). Are the bathroom doors shut to keep the babies from swimming? Why am I in the basement anyway? Ok, I will shut up now.
Married for 22 years.
Mom to eight kids 9 mos to 18 years. Life is full of parenting a variety of ages and all that goes with them and of course taking care of the ever hardworking hubby. I do still love to mow the lawn, knit a few stitches when I can, and spend time with friends when I can.
