Right now, I have 5 children under the age of 5 at my house all by myself. That will be the only statement that impresses you in this post. Because 4 out of the 5 are sleeping. And the one who isn't is sitting in her bouncy chair staring at a book with purple pictures on it.

In 24 hours, my mother, father, and brother in law will be here. I haven't picked up one toy or cleaned one toilet. And I'm writing a blog. toilets??? blog??? toilets?? blog??

Its been craziness around here this week. VBS can do that to you. And I only have 1 child in it. I had told you my nieces were here this week. Well one of them hates to go to VBS. This totally perplexed Zakary today. He said to his female cousin "I love this, how can you not love this?". Everyday the 3 big kids go to VBS in the morning, eat lunch together and play until we can't referee their fighting any longer and then they all crash for an hour or so and get up and play more until its time to go to bed. Oh to be a kid again. Just getting them their lunch on the table wears me out. Or really - watching my mom do it. I'm usually conveniently nursing the baby.

I might be scarce the next few days with company arriving for Paige's 2 year birthday party. But I'll be back with lots of stories.

Happy Birthday Paige!!

Yes, I was wondering where you were poor woman, can you imagine if all those children were YOURS?? Oh I just don't know how people do it with 5ish kids. I'd go nuts!
