Yesterday we were coming home from Noah’s lesson and it has become my habit to “chore prep” in the car. Meaning, before we get home I’m outlining what needs to be accomplished that evening. Yes, I’m a slave driver. I’m not sorry.
Anyhow, the chicken saga continues and even though they have granted us a handful of eggs we are still working on a solution. We made them an outdoor pen but that didn’t solve it. That is the current project. My son has his own project and sometimes needs a helping hand. Guess who? Yup, mama to the rescue. It’s funny to me how the tables have turned. Now I am trading and bargaining work with my son as we both are project people. How fast the time goes!
Yesterday was a mellower evening for us and we spent the last hour of the day hanging out and telling jokes. Always a favorite activity at our house. We have had a lot of frustrating days but as my kids grow I find myself in a quandary. At the baby stage I wished they could stay little. I couldn’t wait for them to grow past that awkward not-a-toddler-anymore-but-still-ornery stage and now that 2/3 of my kids have left elementary school for good I am back to wanting to hold on but seeing the need for letting go. What is a mom to do?
