I am a procrastinator!

As the title says it. I will put off tons of stuff. Which also usually means I have clutter everywhere because I put off putting it away. I am trying to get better at this. I am getting more stuff cleaned up but I still am not that great at putting it away in the first place. To my credit, it can be hard to do everything right when I want to when there is also 4 kids to look after. But I can't always use that excuse. Hopefully when they get older it will get a little easier but for now I am content with the fact that I am trying.

Blake has had a funny rash the last couple of days. It seems to be a reaction to something but I can't figure it out. Hopefully it goes away on its own. Rachael figured out how to climb up to the back of the couch today even when I raise to cushion to try to prevent it. What a monkey. Paige was tired today as she took a really long morning nap that I lost rack of time with so she didn't sleep this afternoon. I had to carry her everywhere tonight. I will miss these days when they are gone!!

Mommy Guilt

Who hasn't felt Mommy guilt? I certainly have. Many times over. However I once heard someone say that if you feel Mommy guilt then that means you care and you are doing a good job. I like to think of it this way, but I still feel Mommy guilt. I feel guilty that my 3 other children will never get the same attention that my first got. I feel guilty that I have twins and then will never get the attention of being the only baby at one time. I feel guilty that my older 2 don't get the attention that the girls get because they are twins. I feel guilty when I take some time to myself during the day as taking care of 4 children can be exhausting. All in all I think I am doing a good job. Will the Mommy guilt ever go away? I don't think so but I can live with that.

Updates on the kids are:

  • Signed the boys up for Sports Mania at the local YMCA today. See how they like that
  • Rachael is getting 2 new teeth, bottom in front and a top molar.
  • Paige is getting on new tooth, bottom in front. She still hasn't got one of her top side ones.
  • Tyson misses Blake when he goes to school and is bound and bent that he is going to school too!!
  • Blake went to the local fire hall with his class on Monday and had a great time.

Plugging away at life

So it has been awhile. We have been going on with life. Braden went back to work last week so that is taking some getting used to . We had him all to ourselves for 4 months so the boys don't like that too much.
We had a blast at Great Wolf Lodge. We will go back for sure. The boys had so much fun and it was so much fun to watch them. Tyson keeps asking when we are going on bacation (what he calls vacation) again.
I am slowly working away at cleaning the house a bit. This task is never ending. I keep telling myself i will get there one day!
The girls are doing well. Into everything. Doing very well at walking now.
