i will let you in on a little secret.  

i am a mom to four boys.

i am a mom to four boys.

i am a mom to four boys.

i am a mom to four boys.

i am a mom to four boys!

you see, this may have not been a secret to you, but apparently it was to me.

for the past six months i have tried to go about life as usual with just adding a child.  you know, a family of five plus one?  simple math, right?  

oh no, my friend.  if it were only that simple.

the life as a mom of four boys could be the title of its own blog.  believe me, it has been suggested to me more than once.  but where in the life of being a mom to four boys would i find time to add in another blog?

where do i have time for this one?

i do not quite know why it took me six months to realize, but now that i have i feel so much better.  no wonder time wasn't quite adding up.  there should be 24 hours in a day, right?  no wonder i haven't seen the bottom of a clothes hamper in a long long time.  wouldn't an average of 2 loads a day keep up?  no wonder this once early bird, night owl, afternoon lover is continually thinking of sleep.  no, i do not want the latest version of cio.

life feels like it is a whirlwind and is going faster and faster and faster and i look around wondering why i cannot quite keep up...

...and then it comes to me.

i am a mom of four boys.

And they are four beautiful boys! I can imagine the whirlwind of your life. I am a mom of four, but one is an adult, one a teen, and the other two are 10 and 7. Just keep taking it one day at a time. You will find the bottom of your hamper again soon!
