Ode to Motherhood

What to you is the loudest, most obnoxious animal at the zoo? Multiply that by 10 and you have the sounds endured on the car ride home from church last night.

My best friend drove us home because my van is in the shop & jeremy needed his car. So in the midst of the cackling hyena, screeching penguin, and obnoxious sea lion, in other words: MY 3 Kids; my best friend says "so this is really your life, hey?"

My response: "Yea, it's amazing I'm not addicted to meth"

I love my kids. Don't get me wrong. They are the cutest, most adorable, sweetest, 'I cannot smooch them enough' kids on earth! I LOVE my children.

But like any good mom, sometimes you just have to think, it's amazing we're as sane as we actually are, given all that being a mom entails. Ode to single parents who do it all alone, cause when my husband is out of town and there is no "momma needs quiet time". Wow. My ears bleed, my kids talk non-stop, they are all mini-me's...3 times little me. Ahhhhhhhh!

Little divas...

I'll take the crazy & chaos over ANY thing though. Because how can you not see these faces and feel beyond blessed as a mom!

ha! I taught my kids everything I know! And they take it to another level & make me bonkers! It's a vicious, awesome cycle I wouldn't trade for the world!
