Playing house

Sometimes I have to pinch myself so I know that this is really happening.

When I was a little girl I daydreamed non-stop about how I'd have a large family (I played with at least three baby dolls at all times) and a wonderful husband and I'd do mom stuff. I'm pretty sure I thought at that time "Mom stuff" was all about getting to sit around and read all the time or pretty much doing what you wanted whenever. Boy did I have that all wrong...  Anyways, I just knew I wanted an awesome husband/dad and a ton of kids.

Fast forward a few (ahem...) years and here I sit.  It's finally nap time and I get to type away here while loud boy "YEAH!" noises echo from the Call of Duty game upstairs and little baby snores come across on the monitor.  I am so blessed. I don't even know where to begin.  It took me a long time to end up here. However, here I am.  I pictured the journey to be a bit easier and "mom stuff" to actually be more fun than it can be but I think I had the feeling at the end of the day nailed down.

I love my life.
I found these books at my friend Jo's house. I cannot recommend them enough. They are Busy Books.

Lennon and the busy book. This is the first thing he usually grabs in the morning.
