WHAAAA!?!?!?! Really, Ana? Fo realz people. After all my freaking out and putting it off, we've been at it now for a few weeks and I am really enjoying it. I love that it gives direction and purpose to the morning and I feel like a bad ass when we've finished. Never mind that it takes all of one hour to be "finished" with kindergarten work, never mind that- it is something! I am doing it and I don't hate it! Praise be!
2) Handmade by Meg K:
When my sister came for little J's baptism, she gifted her newly baptized godson with this awesome felt Saint Joseph doll from Meg's shop and I am not being paid to say this: they are so awesome! Git at em.
3) The guys:
Need I say more? I always do. Mike had his first day of teaching undergraduate foundations of theology at Notre Dame yesterday, which is what all 5th year PhD students do. Naturally we put Joseph's tie onesie on to get a picture. It just doesn't get any better than them.
4) This girl:
She fills the day with too much cute to really handle. I love her older sisters too, but man, bad behavior just gets less and less cute as kids get older and, lucky for Lucy, it is still pretty freaking cute even when she is naughty. So imagine how cute she is when she is good! Go ahead, imagine it. So. Cute.
5) Coping mechanisms:
Baking. Getting a hair cut. Online shopping. Delicious coffee. Wine. These are the names of my coping mechanisms because 4 kids is kicking my butt, people. While it would surely be helpful to add a some consistent workouts to the list, for now these will have to do.
