losing my mind...

Thank you for all of the encouraging comments about my lack of sleep. For some odd reason I actually slept last night... maybe God knew that Claire and Luke would drive me over the edge today if I didn't get just a little bit more sleep than usual!

We had a fun weekend. We had planned a short trip to see Jeff's Uncle and Aunt, but we had to cancel at the last minute. Claire cannot shake this recent asthma flare up... it made me nervous to travel with her like that. So instead we stayed here and went to the park. This particular park is right next to the lake. Claire loved just looking out into the water... she was looking for alligators. Funny right? When we pulled up to the park there was a warning sign stating that alligators had been spotted around the area! WHAT! We played cautiously.

One of the many faces of Claire...

Well, I guess I should elaborate on the title I chose today... I feel like I am losing my mind because I cannot get ANYTHING accomplished (any "Amen's" from my Mommy friends???).

Things I need to get done:

1. Laundry- we are leaving Friday for our Thanksgiving trip.

2. Decorations- I am decorating a table at our Women's Renewal at church tomorrow night.

3. Bathe- Please tell me that there are other Mom's out there that don't get to shower until nap time?!!

I won't go on, because I'm sure you don't really care...

This is a video of Luke singing. I ask him to sing this song at least 10 times a day because I think it is just down right CUTE. He LOVES Elmo. So, here is Luke's big singing debut! (La, la,la,la, Elmo's World...)

I have recently found that taking a shower has taken the very back seat. I'll get up one morning and realize that it has been 2 or 3 days since I've showered. My kids don't nap anymore and by the time I get them in bed, I'm too tired!

I'm working on that!!!

Luke is so cute and talented too. He just has to be a Caster :)

Glad to hear you got some sleep. And I can relate on the LONG list of to-do's! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I'm not even a mom, but I usually wait unti after my nap to bathe

Hi Em! I love that pic of Claire!! And I've realized lately that I don't get to brush my dang teeth til' well after lunch...just as I'm getting in the shower. Oh well, that's just between you and me;) Happy Thanksgiving!
