|The "Magic Seat."|
Oh, hello there favorite time of the year!
|In case you haven't herd, her recent nickname is Gassy Jassi.|
|If I lay her down after she's fallen asleep, she's usually good for about 10 to 20 more minutes of sleep.|
|The one thing I accomplished while the boys were at preschool - all the diapers boiled and hung out to bleach in the sun ... where I left them for four days. So don't worry, she's laying on the cleanest of clean cloth diapers!|
|Girlfriend loves her bike helmet.|
I eventually left him in the hands of the very capable Ms. Bonnie, whom he said he was going to kick if she came near him. According to her report, he spent the first part of school in the corner making raspberry noises. Eventually it got old and he decided to join circle time and ever since then he's been a lover of all things school and Ms. Bonnie.

|Both boys walking in to school. Can you believe half my kids are in preschool?|

Finally, I discovered one more thing I'm capable of in this thing called motherhood. I can pack up and drive 4 kids under 5 for a few days of camping at the beach. I always think it's funny when people respond to certain aspects of my life with "I don't know how you do it." Usually, the answer is "How can I not do it?" Most of the time, I don't have a choice. Jon was in Hawaii all last week so in this instance, I did have a choice - spend 5 days alone at home with 4 kids or attempt a road trip with 4 kids. Neither sounded very appealing but only one ended in the prospect of a 1.3 kids to 1 adult ratio. And so that's just what we did.
But alas, we'll save that story for another time. The grunting, sighing, fist-sucking sound going on next to me indicates that my free time is up for now!
