Then I am reminded (because if I have held a coherent thought that long it is most likely daytime and there are children all around) that I have 7 children home all day long because I want them here. I homeschool them. I sing to them. I read to them. I feed and clothe them, potty-train them, wipe their noses and tushies, kiss boo-boos and train them up in the way they should go. They are my priority - not a little extra cash.
I started this blog after the birth of our third child, Bun, as a way to keep grandparents and aunties and uncles updated with pictures and the latest goings-on of the residents of Pookieville.
So mostly it is:
a mish-mash of daily life complete with tried and true recipes from baking to
horrifying potty-training stories,
pictures of kids on birthdays,
when homeschooling makes me want to poke my eye out,
when Danny risked his life to bring me a bag of chips,
stories about how my carpet looks like oatmeal with raisins,
exciting news like when I was expecting triplets,
to the mundane news like trying to move out of a mold-filled home,
Kiddie Kwips and on and on and on.
It will likely stay this way.
Do you feel like you're spying on my daily life? You are. And I'm okay with it.
I like to think that others will learn from my mistakes and have a good laugh at the crazy things my children do. I also like to think that you can benefit from my experiences-- as I benefit from yours.
Thanks for being with me for the last 804 posts. I hope you'll join me for the next 804. Follow me now and live happily ever after. *snort*
