patience . . .

Screen shot 2014-04-16 at 4.41.15 AM As you know I am pregnant with number 4.5 and this equation does NOT work out KIDS + PREGNANCY = PATIENCE

With this little bun in the oven I do not have much in the patience tank and it is frustrating.  The smallest things are driving me bonkers!  So I have a new plan and I am going to share it with you.  When one of my little ones gets hurt for the 45th time that morning or someone pushes someone or someone can't find a baby or buckle themselves in the car or is grumpy because they only had 14 hours of sleep I am going to PAUSE and remind myself their age.  I have been doing this and it's been going great.  The PAUSE calms me down and the reminder of their age significantly lowers the bar in the kids favor.  You can even try this on your spouse (if he is a he) . . . pause, remember he is a man and you will automatically lower the bar for him.  HAHAHA.  Sorry Weetie, that was just too funny not to write.

And on another note I just got the bill for this website which means my first anniversary is coming up this summer.  Woo hoo!  Thank you for following and thank you for passing this along to your friends.

XO
