I think I've lost my mind

One of my favorite shows these days is Jon& Kate Plus Eight. My favorite line is in the opening credits when Kate says, "Today I think I'm going to lose my mind." It makes me chuckle everytime I hear it because that's how I feel most days. I love my kids dearly but man, are they challenging. We are going through a hitting phase, big time, all.day.long.


Closely followed by loads of crying and the infamous, "She hit me!" or "He hit me!" Boo hoo hoo.

Today was the girls' last day of preschool. Last day. So I pick them up after school and their teacher tells me how Kate was beating on Molly all day. Gggggrrrrreeeeeaaaattttt. Last day of school and this is how it goes.

So another sign of me losing my mind, I agreed to be President of the local chapter of Mothers of Multiples. In addition to being on the board for MOMS Club and a coordinator for MOMS Club International in which I oversee 6 other chapters. Who me? Bored? Need more to do? Nah.

Mother's Day 2008

I had a wonderful day. It started with Ryan coming into my room and wishing me a Happy Mother's Day. In fact, I was wished HMD, many many times by all three of my kids. Awwww. We went to brunch at my fav place, Winterthur. Delicious as always. We normally take a tram ride through the gardens and visit the Fairy Garden but it was really buggy out. Those darn gnats. So we went back to Gam and Pop Pop's for a bit and visited Brady. He has gotten so big! The kids like seeing him through the sliding glass door but not up close. He has a bit of a jumping problem that needs to be worked on.
Afternoon naps happened all around and then we finished out the day with dinner at Aunt Annie's house. A very nice day indeed.
Oh, I got a Ritz Camera gift card as I always love camera stuff, a mug with a picture of my family, new sheets and new towels. Yay!
