Keep staying present.
Keep working out and doing morning routines before the kids are up.
Keep those morning lists coming for the kids.
Make sure they do their jobs before running off to play.
Don't grab cookies when they tick you off.
Take tons of pics and have the kids practice writing by journaling.
Find snippets of sanity...take a walk, read a book or magazine, call a friend, enter blogland.
The house will not be as neat as you'd like.
Remember how far you've come...
you no longer have to chase toddlers on land or in water.
And that is a good thing.
You will be exhausted at the end of the day.
Go to bed.
Get ready for another day.........
pic at the Museum of Science and Industry....yes I'm wearing heals, and yes, Carl is that much taller than me. Time for stilts! I was the crazy mom heading downtown (Chicago) on the day of the Blackhawks parade. Missed two overcrowded trains...and drove! :)
