I have never been in my house without all my children being here. It's kind of weird. I have a lot of thoughts today so I am going to write down as many as I can. I am taking my SIL's 31 for 21 challenge and going to try to write in my blog every day in the month of October.
Thought number one. I have had only two children this weekend and it has been a piece of cake. It has been quiet and easy to maintain. No fights to break up, no children back talking, no homework, etc. I remember back to when I was a mom to just my first 2 children. I thought it was very tough. My life seemed so busy with the demands of motherhood and being a good wife. Now that I have older children I realize that I had it easier back then and didn't even know it. I wonder if I will look back on this time of chaos and say the same thing. I had it easy back then. I hope not because my life is certainly not easy right now. It's usually very LOUD at my house. It has been nice having a quiet home but I really miss my oldest kids and my husband.
Okay, I'm going to go to bed now so I will continue my thoughts tomorrow. I need to get some sleep so I can get back to normal. I've been under the weather all weekend.
