Ok, so this isn't what I look like while shopping. In fact it's not even close. Picture this: A woman who is looking very harassed. One child being worn (whether in the sling or the Bjorn...). One child being chased-because she was dumb enough to think that a stroller wasn't entirely necessary. It. Is. Trust me. Haley can make store managers ask them to leave no matter how much they promise to spend. Then the boy that is trailing along behind her (7 year old boys don't like shopping anyway) is tossing a football found in the store up and catching it. Only he didn't. Instead she is now the mother whose head has had a football bounced off of it in the checkout line at Old Navy. The 10 year old girl simply wants a chance to look at clothes and decide which outfits would best suit her and talk about those outfits. But, with all the chaos...the mother in the revised picture is not always very patient with the big girl.
Then, even though the mother learned her lesson and put the 2 year old in a stroller at the next store, the 2 year old often escapes the stroller or uses it as a stepstool to get clothing articles. But don't worry, the 7 year old boy will gladly snatch them from her and stubbornly and silently play tug-of-war with her over an article of clothing (that she wasn't actually causing any harm by looking at). But, she is not silent. She is screaming. Loudly.
The mother then decides that it's just not worth it to be in the store at all. The mother then leaves the store with a frown on her face and vows never to do that again. But she will. It's called insanity!

I don't know. I feel like my life is so un-noteworthy right now. Who wants to hear about poopy diapers, waiting for new cloth diapering supplies in the mail (excitedly I might add), washing said diapers, homeschooling, dealing with pre-teen angst (do I really have a pre-adolescent child?? one that fits into the "tween" category? OH MY GOSH!), sibling rivalry, a two-year old that keeps me on my toes all day long...and my longing to lose weight but seeming inability to do anything about this issue?? Who wants to hear about all of that on a daily basis? I don't. It's my life. I love it.'s not really worthy of a blog entry every day. Besides, when would I do that?
But, I do have a few pictures! Wanna see them? Okay. I knew you would.

I think I'm drowning in tears around here. No, not mine, but Haley's and Nathan's. It always seems as if someone is crying. That's why I haven't posted in so long. I'm tired. The good thing I can say: Nathan is having fairly good nights. Go figure.
I would like to know what is up with this. I'm starting to feel like it's "personal" somehow. Three out of four of my babies have screamed all the time. :(
I'm a good mom. My babies are well cared for...why do they cry? All. The. Time.
