New normal

We are adjusting to our new normal around here.

CRAZY! Not that we weren't a little crazy before, but we just kicked it up a level. I spend half my day in the bathroom between myself and three two-year-olds. I think it is comical the absurd amount of time that can be spent in that one room.

My parents came last night and spent the night with us. They also babysat the kids while Carl and I went to the movie Blind Side and went to Perkins afterwords. I think the last movie I went to in the theater was Narnia. (That was a few years ago...oh I just looked it up, it was 4 years ago.) Carl loves going to the movies, but I like to watch them at home. So, I don't want to waste money on something that is not that enjoyable for me, plus you can't talk at the movies. When I go out on a date, you have to talk otherwise I think it doesn't count as a date. Side note: I did have fun last night because Blind Side is about an amazing adoption story.

The other day the triplets got into the coconut oil and lotion after they went to bed. They all got into it earlier in the day and knew that they were NOT supposed to play with them. One of them climbed the built in dresser and pulled it out from the back shelf. They put it all over the beds and comforters. They themselves looked like greased little pigs. I was not a happy camper when I found them. The hard part is that each of them takes turns being the instigator of trouble. What one doesn't think of the other two will. Most days I just stand there and shake my head thinking, "O Lord help me!"

All in all we are doing well and looking forward to celebrating Christ's birth.

I pray that "O LORD help me" MANY times a day...LOL. I have two that are great instigators and two more that willingly follow.

Angel, I cannot even imagine...having just 1 that is 2 years old is busy...I can't imagine having 3!!! I think I'll have to make it a new normal to pray for you in moments when Seth is being a rascal b/c I only have to deal with 1 that age, not 3!!! :)
