2. I remember at a family party when we announced that we were pregnant when Maggie was just over a year old, that Maggie then suddenly seemed to be on a mission to be the craziest, most disobedient, wild child the world has ever known and I just started crying thinking "What have we done getting pregnant? We don't need more of this...." And that was before we even found out it was twins. Well, this week has been kind of like that. I feel like all 3 of my children have been on missions to destroy the house and my sanity. And I just keep crying and saying to myself "What have we done getting pregnant? We don't need more of this..." But I think we do need more of the craziness because I don't know how many families there are on the earth that are willing to live in this level of chaos and God needs to get a lot of kids down here before the world ends (that is from the Book of Megan, chapter 5, verse 12). I'm excited to welcome another baby into our home. Here's hoping its a baby and not several babies.
3. We've been working super hard on our yard today. I mowed the front lawn while Dan built a new chicken run for our chicken coop (we're done letting the chickens run around the entire back yard pooping everywhere they please, because they please to poop everywhere and then we have to step in it). Then I spread mulch in all of our flower beds while Dan tilled the garden and built a new gate for the chicken run. Then we shopped for plants and had to go to 3 stores before we found all the veggie plants we wanted for the garden. Then I had to put the twins in the bathtub because Will pooped his pants and Coleman peed (they've been potty trained for nearly a year--what gives guys?), then I had to put Maggie's bed back together because I washed her sheets, then I cleaned the fridge because something smelled funky in our kitchen and it has made me throw up just walking in there. Good news: I didn't gag. Bad news: I didn't eradicate the stench... its lurking somewhere else. Then suddenly I felt exhausted so i put myself to bed. Poor Dan is still outside in the dark planting the garden. Which brings us to tid-bit 4 which is the same as how tid-bit 1 starts.
4. My husband is awesome.
