Worm of Honor

Yes. We are alive. Just with 4 kids in the house and a hubby that is working some pretty insane hours, it doesn't leave much to guess as to why we haven't posted in a while. But we'll start with this...a bit of food for thought:

Mommy had a epiphany today. She is truly a mom of boys. It hit her as she was driving 4 smelly boys (and one girl with a tiara) down the interstate after hours of outdoor play. We were dropping off C (our foster-brother's twin) to his foster house for a pizza party. The radio was playing VeggieTales and in her cup holder? What else than a plastic cup full of dirt for C's worm pet. Yes. Mommy was transporting 5 kids and one worm pet. In a place of honor, none-the-less! That is where her coffee normally goes!

So. As you can guess, she was wearing a sweatshirt, might have had a shower, she had on a baseball cap, and her teeth felt fuzzy. But we were all happy AND the other foster parent even got some of the cookies us kiddos 'HELPED' Mommy make. Peanut butter and oatmeal. Yum.

On the to-do list for tomorrow is laundry. Who would have guessed? Maybe she should take that shower now? Um...yes. Us boys aren't the only smelly ones.

Kristy, You certainly have your hands full. You are an AWESOME MOMMY, not only to Dylan and Jonah, but the foster kiddos as well. And you are making good memories for all of them.
