Sometimes I keep it all together and everyone has (clean) matching socks.
Sometimes all of my kiddos get along while we ride in the van and no one cries and everyone keeps their seat belts on and buckled correctly the whole trip.
Sometimes I cook super healthy meals and my kids willingly eat moringa and we don't have dessert or sweets for over a week.
Sometimes the schedule comes together nicely. all of my teachers at church show up on time, and I am able to attend service.
Sometimes #1 and I can communicate without hardly even having to tell the other person what is on our mind and things run like a well-oiled machine.
Sometimes everyone here is healthy.
Sometimes Rosebud wears tennis shoes with no socks because I can't A. find them or B. keep them washed.
Sometimes I have to stop the van and give a spanking because people don't always keep their seat belts buckled...and sometimes we miss out on special things because no one in the van can be nice.
Sometimes my husband buys hot dogs because he doesn't want another sandwich and we just don't have TIME to cook something else.
Sometimes I spend (literally) hours working on my schedule for teachers/assistants at church and I still have "holes" and someone calls at the last minute and can't work. Or I get sick and can't do MY slot.
Sometimes it seems no matter how much we try and sit down and discuss things or be patient, #1 and I are on totally different wavelengths.
Sometimes three of my kids get croup all at the same time and I spend 2 hours in the doctor's office. And then we miss Snug's basketball awards ceremony because, well, the other three are sick.
Sometimes I just have to get it out in writing.
We have a few things to share…
