post edit:

plans changed. kids were fighting non stop... making me not keep my lenten promise. i stayed home and hubby went to concert. was tempted to do jager shots after they were finally asleep (at 6:30) tired maybe? may have actually done a jager shot. with hubby. when he got home. if i in fact actually did one. one may never know...
finished baskets, food prep, and scavenger hunt ready to go... thanks to p. he is really good at writing clues.
feeling much better after a tough nite, reading funny posts by other mothers. i sure love being a parent, but it sure is hard sometimes :)

Wow, that was a really long day. It sounded like a two day event. I thought in your blog you were going to say you were making the girls dresses in all the mist. Please post them all dressed up for Mass. Happy Easter my friend, can't wait to see you all.

Parenting is exhausting. It's challenging and rewarding. It is the worst joy and the worst pain. It's hard then it's easy; then it's hard; then easier; then really hard, really, really hard, then it's eeezzeee.

I am in the eezzee phase.

I am in awe of all that you do and do with love and finesse. I'm so proud of you!
