Good time to start....

....Potty training that is!  It's spring so kiddos can go without pants and to make it even eaiser Pampers Kandoo line of products is offering up a high dollar coupon in next weeks paper.  This coming Sunday (4/3/2011) you can find a $1 Kandoo coupon in the P&G brandsaver available in most Sunday papers next to the Pampers coupons.  This make them as low as 65 cents a pack at Target.  These come in very handy, we use them a lot in this house, even the older kids still do.  Pick up multiple papers to save more or ask friends and family who may not have kids in the house for theirs.

Working through it....

Oh I am SOOOOO exhausted!  I have 4 kids, am a pastor's wife which means I run the church behind the scenes, have a large family (I am oldest of 9 kids) and also do my best to run my own little business to help make ends meet around here.  There is always something going on, never a dull moment.  My husband and I have been talking about how things have been chaotic and feeling out of control lately and how things keep getting neglected.  Such as lately I have been mopping when you start sticking to the floor because time passes and next thing I know it's been 2 or 3 weeks since I last mopped, things like that. Another thing that was getting neglected was quiet time reading and praying cause I would eek out every second of sleep I could when I could.   So we talked about putting our household on a schedule in hopes of things running smoother.  We started yesterday and it is so hard getting up earlier especially with my husbands erratic and late work schedule and the kids school schedules.  Trying to work in a few workouts a week so I can loose 60 pounds this year, making sure I get my work done and not forget important bills or errands for house and church (it's like running 2 households and then some)  So now we are getting up earlier, eating meals on a schedule and working out a chore list in hopes of things getting more manageable.  It feels at this moment as though it may be the death of me but I know in the end it will be worth it in more ways than one.  And if you see fit please pray for my sanity and strength!  I am learning perserverance the hard way.

Noah Bear....

I have a silly little 5 year old who is so much fun to talk to.  He entertains his aunts and uncles all the time.  I have 8 siblings from 31-14 and they love hanging with him even though he is only 5 because of whatever may come out of his mouth next. Well I thought I would share a few with you and will update it often as neccesary (which with him may be more than once an hour LOL) 

Some Noah-isms....
“I practiced my yawning and it made me tired so I can sleep now”
“Put 1 eye on my cup, no put both eyes on it” (So Alex won’t get it)
“I Have a Night headache”(as opposed to a day headache)
“Can you BOO my hiccups?”
