Yes, I've neglected this blog! (relatively speaking)
Life's been busy. ie - The Babes have been busy, and I've just been trying to keep up. Forget about this one - I can barely maintain o.l.m.
I must confess... I don't mind.
I'm not feeling particularly proud or accomplished with our various escapades, but I must say it is so lovely to be in a place (regardless of how it appears to others) of astounding interest and growth.
Life appears fascinating and enchanting to Trev and Cakes, and that's all that I could possibly wish for.
There have been moments... believe me, there have been moments!
Right after I wrote my last "I am the Queen of Cool" post, Trev threw his electric toothbrush into a despicious puddle on the bathroom floor.
Last night while making cookies, Maddie got her forearm whipped up into the hand mixer's... thingies. (What the heck are they called?) Trauma-a-rama. It was awful, I don't mind telling you.
A minute later, after a full recovery (hers, not mine) she drug off the new cookie cutters, and it took me a half hour (of aggravation) to find them.
Next morning was a 32 ounce glass -?- full of lemonade that was dropped straight down (Maddie) and exploded straight up, and then straight sideways all over my kitchen floor.
Maddie has not felt Quite The Thing lately... we all know what that does to a tot's disposition....
I've had my moments, Friends.
I am sorry to say that I cannot - truth now, impart any wise words or serene comments.
I am, however, coming to a place of (possibly) realizing that the perfect days will absolutely include a bit of chaos.
The other day, the children were all up in arms, we were getting ready to go, general chaos/chaos, I was getting aggravated, and Eric The Sage said blithely "What?, it's just Ordinary Family Chaos...."
Ordinary Family Chaos.
Mayhaps I should change olm's title.
Hopefully more tomorrow - when I am fresh and new, and the day dawns bright and clear....
Oh, and it'll be quiet....
