Pooped




If it wasn't for these faces I'm not sure I could have made it through the last three days. I've done more laundry than I can count...lysoled more times than I can remember(seriously,I've used almost an entire can in 3 days)...changed more sheets than I care to yet there is so much I still haven't gotten to. I still need to strip the kids beds and wash the dogs linens for his bed. I need to clean the kitchen floor and tackle the bathrooms. I will have more laundry to do tomorrow undoubtedly! But when I get stressed or overwhelmed I just look at these little faces and everything becomes so much easier! These have been my steadfast helpers these last few days while their Daddy has been sick and although we didn't enjoy him being sick and I am utterly exhausted tonight  I really enjoyed being with them all!

Ugh I am sorry you're on sick duty. That is NOT fun at all. I'm glad those adorable kids are keeping your spirits up, at least. Hopefully your husband feels better soon and no one else gets sick!

I hate this time of year for that very reason. I hope that your family is all healthy again soon.

Hope everyone is feeling better and you can rest!

Sounds like we are in the same boat! I hope your week turns around. I have had no energy lately, so I am also thankful for their beautiful smiles and faces!

I didn't even have a sick one and I am pooped too :) I cleaned house all day yesterday, but what an awesome feeling today! The housework will always be there, but those smiling faces have to be enjoyed as much as possible too!!

Awwwwwwwwwwwww,and what beautiful, precious faces they are!

Just know that the older they get, the more they can help ---- and the bigger messes they'll make.

Sorry! ha ha ha
