You might be thinking the title is related to our youngest, and it very well could be, but....
I have been a little out of pocket.. I feel like a slacker with my entries here. And though I have read most of the blogs I visit in recent days, I am behind on commenting which I like to do. Why? It is the changing of the seasons...
We have been pulling tubs of clothes down from the attic for spring/summer. Meanwhile, I also have been pulling the fall/winter clothes. (In some ways that sounds simple, but it isn't...I have a "charity" pile, a "garage sale" pile, a return to friends pile, and a "save for next year" pile. Nothing is simple. (And for the oldest daughter, it means shopping and finding clothes since she has outgrown last year's wardrobe)
The switching of the seasons takes some time, and honestly I haven't been too aggressive with it. It wasn't that long ago we had snow and very cold temps. I knew this week we would see some warmer temps, so I have been hurrying the process along. However, we went from "zero" (cold and frigid temps) to "ninety" (okay, not really ninety but it feels like that after the cold temps) in a matter of days. Today was rather warm. Thankfully I have almost taken care of the girls and am finishing up child 4's. Maybe my own wardrobe can be next. :)
It has been a trying few days. The youngest is a full fledge toddler. He says "no" before he even finds out what I want him to do. Child 3 is going through a rough spot. We are just dealing with normal school/kid stuff with the older two (and constant bickering). Some days I just crumble to the floor by the end of the night. The constant decision making, the solutions for how to take care of different situations, the managing of time (especially with the baseball schedule)...sometimes it is overwhelming. I don't have any answers to it all, just thinking out loud... :)
I better get up and moving. I know, not a real entry today...tonight I will do this first rather than trying to do it as I fight sleep at night. Well, that is my goal anyway! :)
