Have a great day!

HipMomma said...

I'm so glad that I'm not the only one who gets, "Wipe me!!!!"

We ARE in it together. Thank you, friend.

Amy said...

For some reason our daughter will yell for daddy when the 'wiping' duty needs to be done...we laugh everytime she calls him.

Your list is almost exactly like mine....MOPS, birthday parties, ahhh, too bad we didn't live closer...we'd be involved in all the same activities!

Dancing Queen said...

man, do i wish you lived closer!! i TOTALLY feel that way about you & my blog buddies! thank goodness i have Mamamia close by to carpool with & share our craziness! couldn't survive w/out it!

did you see oprah yesterday?? it was ALL about moms being overwhelmed and the toll that it can take & why we just can't be cheerleaders more for one another instead of judging & shooting each other down...this subject seemed to cross party lines for sure:)

Gini said...

We ALL can just copy and paste that blog post right onto our own!! You are right, we are all in this together and we can do it!! Or most of it, anyway. YOU ROCK!!

Ohhhh. Sister girlfriend. Are you a fly on the wall in my house? You are living my life.

Some days go off without a hitch. Some days, well, let's just say that Tuesday was NOT one of those days. I think we all cried ourselves to sleep that night!

You're not alone!!!!

XO.

Sorry I've been so behind on my posting.

Many Many blessings to you the rest of this week and that everything you lay your hands to will abound into greatness, divine order in your steps and energy to your hip-hop.. whoot whoot back too you!

I'm a little late in commenting, but yea!...a picture of you...beautiful!

And yes, thank God we have each other! Have I mentioned that I love weekends? They're still busy, but a little lower key and not so pressing on the time issue. Plus, hubby is home! Let's live for those weekends in this crazy wonderful life of ours. ;)
