On the Verge

The past two weeks, I have been on the verge of getting sick. I am grateful that it isn't the full blown nasty stuff everyone around me is getting. Just a little more tired than usual, a few more headaches, a little sore throat, minor body aches.

This morning. . .The minutes before school were ticking by too quickly. . .Olivia was crying on the changing table (from being ignored whilst I got everyone ready). . .Carter and Syd were playing/arguing (instead of getting shoes and socks on). . .I was literally kneeling on my almost two year old Derek to get his diaper changed and clothes on while he threw the biggest two year old tantrum ever. . .and I felt on the verge of something else. Insanity? A meltdown?

Deep Breaths.
I Can Do This!

Hey...I feel like that too, except I feel like I'm also on the verge of expelling a child at any moment (even though I have five weeks left; this pregnancy has been a doozey lately)! I hope you start to feel better and that your kids will give their poor mom a break. Hang in there!

I don't know how you do it, Kace. You're awesome to be patient with 4 kids! You all looked great in your costumes on Halloween...I stole your family picture of you guys all dressed up, so cute! It was fun to see you guys at Kelly's wedding! Olivia is darling, and I'm so glad I got to meet her!
