Hi...lets see...I'm the mother of 4 (5 in October), we have 3 dogs.  I have come to the realization that I will have nice things when I am eighty years old...at this juncture in time it seems that from sun up to sun down all I do is clean, cook, and entertain small people...


I'm not joking about the nice things...I had hope...as with all of my other children if it was up above where they could reach something they would just leave it be...my toddler at present however is NOT so inclined.  Its not as if she's ever unsupervised intentionally...but I do have to pee occasionally...she is a terrorizing genius...if there is something precious or important with some sentimental value to it...she WILL find a way.  I had a Tiara that survived a deployment to Iraq, and my husband had some things that had survived multiple overseas deployments...they were no match for this ingenious little darling that I love so much.  


My day starts around 5am...when I get up, start breakfast, get dressed and enjoy the next hour of silence as it is my last until bedtime (toddler has stopped taking naps all together unless of course we go for a ride to run errands and with gas being what its been driving for twenty or thirty minutes every day to get a nap that will end as soon as she's removed from the car is just not practical).  I'm looking forward to sharing and learning and jst generally talking to other people who aren't as enthralled by the gummi bear song as our toddler.
