My current drama can best be summarized with e=mc²

E as in E-I-E-I-OHHHHHH my gosh that hurt
M as in matchbox helicopter, the thing that I stepped on that gave me a wonderful puncture wound
as in Cha-Ching!! the noise I will hear when I open the bill from my doctors office for a visit and a tetanus shot (at least I am safe for another ten years if some other toy cars want to do battle)

Grocery Carts, Strollers and Lyrics

As I am making lunch for the doodles today I see Ella zoom by... pushing Logan in the doll stroller !! Then they decided he should go in their shopping cart and take a spin. They took turns back and forth for about 15 minutes and had me cracking up the entire time!!

My new favorite song that has kept me sane when things are getting tough around here. Thanks Hootie!

It Won't Be Like This For Long

By Darius Rucker

He didn't have to wake up
He'd been up all night
Lying there in bed and listening
To his newborn baby cry
He makes a pot of coffee
He splashes water on his face
His wife gives him a kiss and says,
"It's gonna be okay"

It won't be like this for long
One day we'll look back laughing
At the week we brought her home
This phase is gonna fly by
So baby, just hold on
It won't be like this for long

Four years later, 'bout 4:30
She's crawling in their bed
And when he drops her off at pre-school
She's clinging to his leg
The teacher peels her off of him
He says, "What can I do?
She says, "Now, don't you worry
This'll only last a week or two"

It won't be like this for long
One day soon you'll drop her off
And she won't even know you're gon
This phase is gonna fly by
If you can just hold on
It won't be like this for long

Someday soon she'll be a teenager
And at times, he'll think she hates him
And he'll walk her down the aisle
And raise her veil,
But right now she's up and cryin'
And the truth is that he don't mind

As he kisses her goodnight
And she says her prayers
He lays down there beside her
Till her eyes are finally closed
And just watching her it breaks his heart
'Cause he already knows

It won't be like this for long
One day soon that little girl is gonna be
All grown up and gone
And this phase is gonna fly by
So he's trying to hold on
It won't be like this for long
It won't be like this for long

Still Here...

Sorry for the lack of posts but we have been dealing with illness and potty training...yes potty training!!! We all have had a yucky cold and now poor Ella has Fifth Disease (or slap face..I know lovely right!). And both kids have decided that they are ready to potty train which I am and I'm not ready for since it adds extra stress to my already stressful day. Hopefully, I can get some pics up soon and have a longer post. Maybe I can get some me time in this weekend since it is Mothers Day. :)
