What do we do all day?

What do we do on a lazy summer day at my house?

Well we start the day by watching a few cartoons. Clayton and Kenndall love to cuddle with mama on on the couch.

Then we have play time. Clayton usually loves to play with her babies, she is a great mommy!

Then it is time for lunch. Here are the kids in our new little corner table. We love it!

Then it is time to swim. The girls are getting better and better everyday. And Cooper is pretty much a fish.

And this is Karsyn's newest fun thing to do. She loves to stand up and play with her little toys. She thinks she is big.

Of course, no one ever fights or throws fits. I never want to pull my hair out. Karsyn never cries, we are all happy and sing songs and talk about rainbows and butterflies. We eat super nutritious meals and have exercise time as a family. We are a perfect little family.

LOLOLOL! nothing could be farther from the truth. Our house is a circus. Fighting, crying, peeing on the floor, spilling drinks, too much TV, messes everywhere, dishes in the sink, laundry piled high, hotdogs and peanut butter crackers for supper, ketchup in the hair, ketchup in Karsyn's hair, sand in the carpet, burned bacon, pullups in the washing machine, pages torn from books, and everyone always needs mama to do something!!

Yes, our life is a little crazy and far far far from perfect. But I am so glad. I am happy the way we are, and I know I am doing the best I can. So many mamas feel pressure to do everything in a way that makes them look good in the eyes of others. One of the most important things about being a mama is that your kids know that you love them, messes, nutrition, exercise, etc.. all will fall into place if you are content with finding what works for you and your kiddos. Don't be pressured! Just enjoy life and teach your kids to enjoy life.
