It’s official. The last of our help flew home yesterday and we are now on our own.

How fitting that just this morning Code Yellow Mom sent me this comic. It sums life up nicely.
I also had to chuckle at another email I got from a dear friend last week. She casually stated:
“You are an exemplary family … you make parenting look easy.”
Obviously she hasn’t been able to keenly observe my mental stability and my sometimes cruddy behavior towards my two oldest children over the last four weeks as I have slowly been adjusting to life as a mother of three.
Time. Yes, I am still giving myself time and allowing myself to process this new realm I have entered.
At least I have cute kids that keep me putting one foot in front of the other … or rather I should say they help force me to lift my head off the pillow every morning, even if they don’t allow me to brush my teeth until well after noon.
