I really liked this snapshot of my day. Next time my goal is to TAKE MOAR PICTURES. I lost steam once we were in “get the kids ready for bed” mode.

Thanks to Trish for the awesome idea and hosting!



  1. And here I thought I’d be the one with the earliest wake-up time. And I was like you – after 8:30 I said “screw the pictures” and just read my book while my 2 yr old exhausted himself…

  2. I understand all too well morning starts like that. I only have the one child and two cats, but they all take turns some days. I enjoyed hearing about your day and the photos. 🙂 Thank you for sharing!

  3. Poopapalooza. BAHAHAHAHA. Both of mine have had “weak” stomachs the past days and I feel all we’ve done is change diapers and wipe bottoms. Blehhhhhhhhh.

    Weaning was so stressful for me. Actually nursing, period, was stressful for me. Wish I could offer up some advice but I’ll just offer up some hugs. And gah–glad I”m not the only one who has had to carry the kiddos out like sacks of potatoes. This seems to be a regular occurrence for us. Yay!!!!!

    Thanks for joining Amanda!
