I wish I could clone myself.

I feel like I am being stretched in 500 different directions... and the only place I want to be is in my bed! Haha! For those of you who don't know, I am 9 weeks pregnant with # 4! I have been SO sick and worn out!! It must have been a man who coined the phrase "morning sickness." I think it should be called 24 hours a day, your whole first trimester sickness. Haha!

Other than dealing the the joys of early pregnancy, I just started my 4th week in a Math class that I am taking for my degree. NOT FUN! I have always struggled with math, and taking it after 6 years of no math at all, is really hard. I surprisingly have an A, well actually it is an A-, but still an A!! It takes me forever to get through my homework and quizzes, so that means late nights sitting at the computer.

Then there is the obvious duties of wife, mother, and housekeeper. I am doing ok with the first two... but the house doesn't look it's best! The boys are all at such different stages right now! I thought having them close together would avoid this... but I was wrong. Koen is teething, crawling, and starting to pull up on EVERYTHING!! He is into everything... and finds every little crumb, or piece of paper, or who knows what on the floor... and where does it go?? Directly into his mouth of course! Then there is Karson, He is at the separation anxiety stage. I might as well sew him too me and carry him around on my back. If I am in the kitchen... he is sitting on my foot, if I am walking up the stairs... he is holding my hand, if I am sitting on the couch or at the computer... he is on my lap. He follows me everywhere, and every time I get up, he does this little whine and runs after me. We can't forget Kaleb. Though he is very independent, he is super sensitive. We are still battling his tantrums and lack of sleep due to his apnea. I feel like we are boring him all day! He is so active, he needs to get out and being doing something all of the time... and lately, I just can't keep up.

So, that is where I am at right now. I actually feel a little better now that I got it out on "paper."
Here are a few random pictures that I haven't shared yet.

Here are the boys snuggled in Kaleb's bed watching cartoons together.

This is from camping in July.

Snuggling with Baby Koen while we were camping.

The boys in their goggles ready to ride the quad with Daddy!! Too Funny!

Baby Koen was sleeping on the floor right before we moved. The puppy laid right next to him... she loves him!

Have a good!! Thanks for listening to my ranting!! Haha!

I love you Jess! Being a Mom is of course the best thing in life, but I'll admit I often have mornings where staying bed is WAY more apealing then getting up to fill the sippy cup that has just been chucked at my head..haha!! Miss you Friend :)!!

Wow, at least it's not just me who feels that way! It's chaotic to say the least! But that 10% of the time when they are sooo cute and sweet, it's worth all the madness!
Hey, why don't you drop off the boys one of these days SOON and let them play with my my boys, it seriously would be fun, they're allways well behaved when they have friends over to play with! I'm home almost all week, call me!
