riding along

We have had a crazy two weeks! After the wedding in CO. We left the girls there for six days with Shane's family! I have never been without the kids for that length of time, and never without a big event happening. I was just at home, and they weren't there. I thought I would miss them like crazy, but it was all so fast. It was the 4th of July weekend and so we were very busy, and I didn't even have time to miss them. In fact, I didn't even really have time to enjoy them being gone. I know, some of you think I am a mean mom, but you have three babies in three years and then see if you aren't looking forward to a few days alone... It was a good time all around, though , and I look forward to more "times with Nannie and Pops!" Oh, the irony! I just took a break from posting to use the bathroom and in a matter of about 12 seconds from entering the bathroom, my oldest comes in, "Mommy!", I say "Really, can you wait a minute?", Then my second comes in and says, "Mommy!", I say, "Go out, give me a minute." then she leaves the door open and my baby comes toddling in and trys to stick her hand in the toilet while I am using it. So see, I was really looking forward to a bathroom trip in privacy. So the girls arrived back safely after their Nannie flew with all three of them, by herself from CO! I know, she is pretty amazing. She stayed for 3 days and I kind of stayed out of the picture to give her the time with them. She loves every minute! Then I dropped the girls off at my parents for three days while went to SC for a business conference. I will post about that later. So we are finally back home trying to settle back into routine. It was a crazy couple of weeks , and a good break from reality, but I thrive on routine. So here we go again...

you and your routine. I believe routine is good and try to live by a loose schedule for the good of my kiddos but every day would be totally different in my perfect world.

I don't blame you one bit for being excited to have some time alone.
Sorry about the bathroom. You should lock the door.

Jackie- Thanks!!! I've had several people recommend the potty training in One day method, but no one actually explained it to me in depth. I'm actually excited now :) (super dorky)I feel like a horrible mom that she isn't trained yet (she's starting preschool in August!) but Miles just started sleeping through the night- so I finally have more energy..excuses, excuses, huh?
Sounds like you had a nice (but too short) break from the kiddos :)
Enjoy the rest of your summer!
