Exhausted!

What more can I say? 4 children, all under 6. Never ending. Never stopping. Run, run, run. Changed 3 dirty diapers, mopped the floor 3 times, washed off the couch 4 times, helped search for a harrow (a plow on the back of a tractor) on the internet, fed the baby 6 times.....sound familiar? No wonder there was a talk by Elder Packer (http://lds.org/conference/talk/display/0,5232,23-1-851-37,00.html) about young mothers and how we should cope. Live IN the moment he says. Yet, that is so hard to do! My favorite part of the day is when the children are all asleep. If I had half the energy of my two year old, Boston, think of all the things I could accomplish! And, I'd be so fit! So... to all the young mothers of Boston's out there or who might ever read this post....carry on, carry on, carry on!

Cute blog! Just you wait till the kids are older. If you notice the time - I'm waiting up for Noel to come home from Prom! My motto is "Endure All Things"!

Amen, Sistah! This is so EXACTLY me right now! My twins are into EVERYTHING and making messes is their goal in life. But today instead of doing the dishes after teaching preschool I took my kids outside and played with them in the grass on a nice warm autumn day. Just like in that talk, it is moments like those that will stay with me forever. We can do it! (although I may have to sleep the rest of my life after all my kids grow up)
