All in a day's work

I ran around like a crazy person yesterday! I had groceries to get,places to go and I had to find a recorder to buy for my son's music class. You know that little flute type thing that they make you play in elementary school? Anyway, I did all that, ran to my mom's house to do her hair. She has locs and they have to be twisted up after you wash your hair or they become one giant mass on the top of your head. After that, I went to pick up my son's from school and the 60 second trip is now 10 minutes long because the bridge in between my mom's house and their school is out and I have to go all the way around to get to them! No telling when it will re-open. On my way to them, I did have a moment of childhood wonder. I was stopped at the light and i looked up at the train tracks and the Ringling Bros Circus train was going by. It was the longest train I had ever seen. it was an old train and I was instantly transported to another time. I felt like if I stepped on that train I would walk into the 1930's. It was a nice quick mental trip. Snapping back to reality, I got the boys home. I had to wrangle them to get them started on their homework. Their dad helped one while I took the youngest one to help him with his spelling words in our study/rec room. He asked could he set up his bowling pens in between his long list of words and then come back to finish. I was against it at first, but I let him do it and it actually worked out great! He played for a while and when I told him to get back to work, he did without hesitation and finished really quick. Hmm? bowling. I fixed a quick dinner and made their lunches for today. Got them in bed and finally took a breath. Whew.


  1. Whew is right! That is a full day! I enjoyed reading how other moms of four boys live out there day. Hang on, mama, this life is quite the ride! =)

  2. Truer words were never spoken. It is definitely a ride!
