Relay Race

The most difficult days as a parent of multiple children are the days where the kids seem like they are running a relay race all day long. They take turns needing you desperately without a break and by the end of the day to say that you are spent is an understatement. Today wasn't the most challenging day we have ever had and it wasn't the last, but I am spent. There were some great moments which are the moments I am holding on to as I reflect in our day together.

"His brain sounds good, Mommy!"

Can't go wrong with this.

Cloud dough!
This is the second batch we made.  Ayden decided to shove the first batch off the counter while we were making it for some reason... Flour and oil is hard to clean up before it's been mixed.
So this one is actually an up and a down from the day.

But there were challenging moments too.  I spent some time reading Raising Your Spirited Child at the end of the day and I am looking forward to facing tomorrow with renewed patience and a positive perspective. I am also looking forward to getting out of the house for a change of scenery!!

What do you do to recollect after a day of relay racing children?  


Flashback!  Here's what we were up to one year ago today: "Early To Bed"
Two years ago today: "Hello Little Cousin"
And three years ago today: "Lessons In Efficiency"

  1. We tried to make cloud dough and play with it inside once. It got everywhere (even though I practically covered the entire kitchen floor with newspaper!) we mostly play with it outside now (although with this weather that would be crazy)
