Monday Mornings......Help!

I wish I had some more sweet pictures to share, but I'll admit, my day has been too chaotic to even think about taking pictures....

There's a Baby Blues Comic book or strip or something entitled "Monday Mornings, Some Assembly Required!" I love that! That is exactly Monday mornings/days at our house most of the time. This is what today looked like:

Noah was having a rough morning. He refused to nurse well (was it the little bit of broccoli I ate last night?), he wouldn't go to sleep, and he just cried and cried.

Eli colored with a pink crayon all over the front of the TV screen. How in the world to remove that?

Cosette and Eli removed ALL of the clothes from one of Eli's dresser drawers and crumpled them all up behind the chair in his room.

Their bedrooms looked like a cyclone had gone through them.

Every five minutes, I'd hear Cosette WHINE: ''MOMMY, Eli....hit me, kicked me, stole my toy, whatever"

Then, when I talked to Joel at lunch time, he informed me that he has a 6:30 church meeting tonight. ARGH!! Poor Joel, it's not his fault....

So, I got through my morning, and thankfully, as a BIG blessing from God, everybody is now sleeping, even Noah. I don't know how long that will last, but I'm enjoying it while it does....


So what is my status now? I'm being content at home, loving my children, adoring my new baby, and thanking God for nap time!!

You need a preset alarm that plays Brahm's lullaby when the kids fall asleep...and then you can take a nap too!! :)

This is the stuff of life, isn't it? I love your ending- thank God for those little things; that your children are healthy, that you have a home, a husband, and NAP TIME! :)
