Today my mind is overflowing with deadlines... some of them are good... some are not so good. I have a lot of little things hanging over my head, and I just want to get them done! Here's my list:
-3 days to get ready for the Father/Son Campout -30 days to complete driving school -8 days to think about my new hair style -5 days to prepare a sharing time lesson -45 days to pack and prepare for our Alaska trip -13 days to prepare Caleb for his Kindergarten Assessment -2 days to get my dining room table cleared off -5 hours until LOST comes on (I don't know that really even like it that much... but I've invested 6 years of my life in this show... I want to see how it ends!) -1 hour until Brooks wakes up -2 hours to figure out what's for dinner -number of days to go without hot water?... unknown. -2 more days until Field Day -14 more days until Concession Duty at the baseball field -39 more days til I turn "one year older and wiser too" -5 more days til Mother's Day, aka the most non-relaxing day of the year! (seriously, why does it have to be on Sunday?) -20 minutes until the clothes in the dryer are dry

About this blog...
Welcome to my world of precious moments, and please-let's-forget-about-it mishaps... where life with 3 boys never slows. Tag along with me as I try to turn those snakes and snails (or whatever little boys are made of) into something that I can cherish... or at least live with!
"The mother loves her child most divinely, not when she surrounds him with comfort and anticipates his wants, but when she resolutely holds him to the highest standards and is content with nothing less than his best."
~Hamilton Wright Mabie
"Mother is the one we count on for all the things that matter most of all."
~Katherine Butler Hathaway
"My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her."
"It is not what you do for your children, but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings."
"I love my mother for all the times she said absolutely nothing... Thinking back on it all, it must have been the most difficult part of mothering she ever had to do: knowing the outcome, yet feeling she had no right to keep me from charting my own path. I thank her for all her virtues, but mostly for never once having said, "I told you so."
"God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers."
"How thankful I am, how thankful we all must be, for the women in our lives. God bless them. May His great love distill upon them and crown them with luster and beauty, grace and faith."
