Remember When I Used to Blog?

A few days ago my goal was to fold the laundry (some of which had been washed and sitting on the family room floor for two days). I actually completed washing everything in our hampers and then brought the laundry upstairs to fold. Four hours and one mini-meltdown later (I never thought there would be a time in my life where I would cry because I just wanted to fold the laundry) the clothes were still spread over the floor and I was letting both babies scream while I built a train track for Michael.

I never did fold the laundry. David did it for me on the one night he got home early ("early" meaning 10 p.m. Sigh. Curses on tax season).

And now I am taking a mental break to blog for the first time in a month, holding Leah on my lap and typing with a split screen so Michael can watch youtube videos. I have a thousand posts in my head, and only time for a few pictures:

Bonnie! I SO understand. Not seeing your blog rise to the top of my blog roll recently, I knew exactly what you were doing. Doug said he spoke with David last week. This is such a hard time. New babies during Tax season! Aaaah! Are you getting any help? I told Doug I wish we were there so I could bring you five dinners to put in your freezer, hold a baby, and take Michael while the twins are napping. I wish we could do something more for you! Laundry at our house still seems to sit for days. We live out of baskets of clean clothes. Never folded. I think you're doing a tremendous job. Deciding what is the most important thing to attend to in a given moment is the challenge. I'm glad you made a train track for Michael. A good choice. You're amazing! Hang in there! Sending our love your way!

Oh man, I can't imagine life with newborn twins AND a three-year old! Easier in reverse ;) Even w/out the three year old, mini-meltdowns happened to me when our two were so small... and not-so-small... AND tax season on top of everything! You are superwoman. I know you know this, but it will get easier. All three of your kiddos are so adorable! I wish I could see you all in person!
