Routines...I love mine.

Routines.  Some are good and some are bad.  Some of them are boring and some are exciting.  Doesn't everyone has routines, at least one if not more.

I have some.

For instance getting up early and going to the gym. I get up at 5:30 am and get ready to go to the gym.  Workout till 7 am and shower after the nasty smelling guy showers. Awesome. I hate getting up early but, I feel good the days I go and bad the days I miss.

Another is getting home, walking in the door and seeing the C's go crazy.  C1 running around in a Mario costume, C2 telling his sister to stop annoying him, C3 annoying the brothers and C4 trying to crawl up T's ass.  Loud and crazy but I love that routine. 

Snack time.  This is always such a production.  Everyone wants something different and then more and milk and C4 is eating off of every one's plates and climbing chairs and table dancing.  T trying to take a bath and the kids running from snack to bother her.  A daily nightmare, but I love it so much.

Brushing teeth.  C2, he is the easiest.  He always wanted to go first. C3, she is easy most of the time but she never wants help.  C1, I have to ask him several times, and C4 he loves to brush and always wants to be in there but getting him out is the hard part.

Bedtime. C2, again, like clock work he is the first in bed and the first to fall asleep.  C1 likes to play in bed but he is always in there when the time comes.  C3, this girl is a serious night owl.  Starts in her bed and makes her way to ours to ask for some Mommy-Daddy time.  C4, well bounces off the walls and finally gets in bed when T announces its time for the Ninny.

See, my routines may be crazy and the kids may give me fits at night about stuff, drive me crazy, but at the end of the day, HOME is where I want to be. All day long I think about being at home. I know T hates when I say it but I would love to be able to work from home, even just a few days.

As miserable as I am during the day,  I cant wait to get home and deal with the craziness.  The nights when the kids may be asleep or ready to crash out as soon as I get there, leave me with an empty feeling.

So routines, and groundhog days...yeah they may leave us scratching our head but when you think about it, were you any better off before madness of kids? NO.

I want my C's to know when they get older, that yeah, I may want to punch myself in the face and break my ankle to kick my own balls some nights, but I would never go back to what life was like before them.

Kiss the Baby

Sean hates being away also so that's why we're working on getting him the heck outta there! With our new business we're shooting for a goal of less than 2 years and he can retire. That's before age 37. It's gonna be awesome!!!
