The title says it all. When we suddenly almost doubled the population of our home, some systems failed! We have a serious plethora of shoes, but no extras. Storage of every kind is an ongoing issue.
Things are really hoppin' around here what with the kidlets, the laundry, the dishes and the organization issues. The days fly by so fast, I'm afraid I'll someday forget how wild and wonderful it all is. Sometimes I have a really great idea or recipe, so this is where I'll store it. Hopefully it will one day be of use to someone. This blog is really just another extravagance -- me treating me to a big ole bag of love -- and lessons learned.
I have no real belief that I will draw any big readership ,but I wish I'd known about blogging when the girls were little because all that stuff I just knew I'd remember forever, I've already forgotten. So here it is - a little peek into the life of a couple of nuts that suddenly decided to parent 3 tiny little cuties in addition to the remarkable two they already had. For future reference, here's the current census of the household. Everyone has been nicknamed so they won't have to kill me later:
Dear Hubby, aka DH - he's 48 on the outside -- young on the inside
Pepper -- Girl, Just started high school and just turned 14
Sunshine - Girl, 12 years old -- home-schooled 7th grader
The Captain - Boy, 3 years young
Tinkerbell , aka Tink, aka Tinker-- Girl, obviously, 2
The Blitz - Boy, 17 mos.
and the furry friends:
Bubby, aka Tyler Bing, chi-terrier mix of unknown age, thought to be 8
Daisy, lab-shepherd mix, 12, a good, good girl
Kiki la Vaca, 13 year old kitty with Hereford cow markings
Oh, and me; 51, certifiable.
