Oh Grandma, Oh Grandma, We Love You Grandma!

Grandma came to visit and we had a GREAT time. This was the first time that the kids really understood that she was coming to visit. I told them several days before she came that we were going to pick her up and that she was going to come in a plane. They LOVE planes now. When we finally picked her up they were sooooo excited...and so was I!!!!




Edi, she is not really mad, just being silly.

Grandma and Edi, both being silly.

We drove 3 hours to the country to visit my mom's brother, Joe. Here is my mom with Sean, Edi, Sophia, and Henry. We made several attempt at a good picture but I was not so successful.

The kids LOVE grandma almost at much as Chris and I do. Chris taught them a little song that he made up and they have been singing about grandma for the past few days.
Oh Grandma, Oh Grandma, We LOVE you, Grandma.
They insert different names from family to each other and even our family dogs but for the past few days it has been A LOT of Grandmas.
Thank you for coming to see us Grandma, we cannot wait until we get to see you again. WE LOVE YOU BUNCHES!!!!

What Happened to ME???

Before this...

And this...

And this...

And this...

I had that...

And that...

And that...

I am finding now that I have NO idea who I am anymore. I am a MOM and a wife, shouldn't there be a little more to it?
I have recently noticed that the kids are getting much easier to take care of. I often find myself wondering what I WANT to do. It is a very odd feeling since I have pretty much been on survival mode for the past two and a half years. I am starting to have more time to THINK. That is not always a good thing! I am realizing that I miss some aspects of my life...pre-quadruplets. I know I know this is perfectly NORMAL, or so I have been told.
I miss working, running out the door with little to no preparation needed, being ready for church in under 30 minutes, working out 2 to 4 hours a day, spending quality time with my Hubby, and having days when I do not have to do ANYTHING.
I would not trade my life now for the world. I have the family I always dreamed of but I am thinking it might be time to focus, a least a little of my energy, on myself. I am hoping this will make me not only a better wife and mother but also a better person in general. Wish me luck. Operation Focus More on Mommy has just begun!!! ;O)

Are you Stuck????

Ok, so I am NOT going to win Mother of The Year this year. I thought she was just whinning because the other kids were bothering her. I had NO IDEA...

This is typical. Edi, so I thought, was upset because Sean would not leave her alone.

She sat in that wagon FOREVER.

Ok, now she is CRYING. Oh, did someone do something to you?

Wow, she must REALLY like sitting in that wagon.

Then it occurs to me...She is STUCK. Great, she has been sitting in that stupid thing for like 30 minutes while I folded laundry. I am very very SORRY, Edi.
Poor little thing her legs were probably numb. She was all folded up in that wagon. Although I didn't feel too bad because about 10 minutes after I got her out...she was right back in it again. GO FIGURE?!?
