I look forward to finding time to dive into these books…you know, cause I have so much spare time on my hands!!
and I love love love loved walking into the bedroom the other night to find these sleeping beauties….
as you can see we are very strict at bedtime Actually, Harrison was all about daddy’s business that night and I needed him out of mine so this was a quick solution to bedtime.
Oh and remember that shirt painting project? Well, here was the end result…
We had so much fun! We happened to sit our herd beside an older gentleman. He looked at us with wide eyes as we sat down, but our little ones were surprisingly VERY WELL BEHAVED!! He complimented us on our parenting skills…as he left we all laughed and said that it was only a matter of minutes before things could have changed. I love me some adoption mama time!! We are truly kindred spirits. They are all a mixture of supportive, funny, and encouraging in so many ways that I can appreciate!
Matters of business….
1. The winner of the book contest has not gotten with me to claim the prize! That was announced HERE! If I don’t have an email of their address claiming their prize by tomorrow, I am going to have to draw another name!
2. Necklaces to match the Ordinary Hero T-shirt sales will ship with the book later this week.
3. Did ya’ll notice how many exclamation points I used in THIS post?? Holy Cow! I am excited about what I have to share here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As a matter of fact, this post has quite a few too. Hope ya’ll don’t mind. I’m not a English guru or writer, I would put myself in the category of enthusiastic sharer. I have heard people complain about reading blogs where people always have typos, too many comas (I always throw them in to be safe), etc etc!! Well they would hate my blog!
4. Oh and I’ll probably post this question in its own blog post because surely many have stopped reading by now, but how do you mama’s of you several younger children do it?? Do you have any tips to share with me? Things I need? Strategies to use? Your laundry, dinner, and going out and about with all them alone secrets??
