Guess what I did today!!

This morning I got up and got myself ready, fed myself and three kids, go tall three kids ready, straightened up the house, fed everyone again, got us all to church ON TIME, came home and cooked and fed everyone, cleaned up again, played card games with the kids, got everyone ready for bed, and put kids to sleep. And that's just the big stuff. If I were to list every little detail, including every diaper change and feeding I'd look like a freaking super hero.

Maybe not a big deal to anyone else. But to me today was HUGE. I've been hanging out in my pajamas for the last (almost) 3 weeks. I've hardly showered. So to go from that to feel like a fully functioning human being again felt amazing!

AND...I did it all by myself. Jason is working again, so I'm on my own with these three kiddos. I really expected this week to be a hormonal nightmare, but the kids have been amazing helpers and Lucas is just such a sweet and easy boy (knock on wood!). So far we've been just fine.

Who knows how tomorrow will go. Maybe it will be the hormonal nightmare I've been waiting for. Maybe not. But as of today, I'm feeling good and loving snuggling my baby boy!! :)
