There are moments and sometimes days when I wonder where is my mind. I have to take care of something as soon as it pops in my head or make a note or it doesn't get done.
2 of my not so proud moments lately are:
- letting the kids play in the hose and forgetting to check if it ever got turned off. This happened friday afternoon. We then left for the weekend, only for me to remember to check the hose Monday afternoon. And, yes it was running full blast! Take a guess at that water bill... yikes! Sorry Jed!
- thinking this lady who was wondering the WalMart parking lot stole my wallet. Nope, I left it in the store. So overwhelmed by the time I realized that it wasn't stolen, that the lady I spoke to at WalMart met at my car to bring me my wallet so I didn't have to bring all 4 of my kids in with me. What was I doing with4 kids in WalMart, I don't know... I think I may be crazy!
- ever since I started staying at home, I have felt a little awkward trying to talk with other adults. I don't know any current events or pop culture. I feel like I don't know what to talk about if it doesn't involve kids or kid stuff. I think my brain is at complete mush right now, I don't even know what I am talking about now. Sorry about this post, this may not make any sense and I am not going to read it over, I am going to bed.
So, good night and disregard this post if it makes no sense!

These past 2 months have flown by. Our days are just filled with so much activity, at the end of each day, I couldn't even tell you what we have done.
Paige is loving preschool - I am so glad for a 9am start. I don't have it all together enough to get her to school by 8. I have also found out that I need a calendar. I forgot about her 1st ever picture day and let her dress herself (she always picks amazing outfits) and, didn't even get her hair brushed that day:) She wants to know how to spell everything and tells us what letter every word starts with.
Camden loves to ride his bike. He asks 50 million times a day if we want to watch him ride his bike. He has been helping Jed gather sticks for fires in our family room. Many times a day he checks the wood pile to make sure the wood is still covered. He only wants to wear bootball shorts (mesh basketball shorts). The few times he has had to wear pants this year because of weather, he has taken them off as soon as we get inside.
Cora now weighs 9lb 8oz. (Paige was 9lb 2oz and Camden 9lb 14oz at birth). She is a laid back, happy girl. She gives us more and more smiles every day. She is really great at holding her head up and looking around at everything. She is still on her apnea monitor, but will hopefully be off of it in another week or 2. She has been diagnosed with a rare skin disorder, hystiocytosis. We are praising God that her diagnosis is good and she only has it on her skin and not internally so no treatment or long term effects.
Kale now weighs 10lb. He can go from happy, smily Kale to really, really mad Kale in just a few seconds. He seems to be a few days ahead of Cora in everything right now. He still has brown hair and we think he will probably have brown eyes as well. No health issues at all for him.
I hear a baby calling me... more to post later!
