What it’s really like with 4 kids, 5 and under

No makeup, negligible sleep, need a shower, a shirt that fits properly and at least 2 kids hanging off you at all times.  We are all, I think, happy that I’m not breastfeeding in the picture… well maybe not Owen.  He currently is nursing like he gets paid by the minute.

Elise is pictured here losing it, because I put lip gloss on her dry lips.  Ahhh, the glory and wonders of life with a 3 year old.

On the bright side, Caleb is turning into such a great little man.  He is growing curious about dinosaurs, helicopters, planes and engineering.  We got a 174 piece set of mag formers for a relatively reasonable price during boxing week, and Caleb has been busy as a bee, building mock eiffel towers, Seattle space needles and even the sydney opera house.  Well, that and randomly pulling down his sister’s pants.
