We went to church. This simple statement doesn’t even begin to sum up the craziness of getting three small children fed, dressed, combed and pottied and out the door by 8 a.m. while your husband is doing chores.
I got through the singing before I got paged from the nursery.. Cadrian had to be changed into a new onsie. After wiping him down top to bottom and nursing him, the sermon was over, and it was time for my nephew’s dedication.
But then I got paged for Brielle. She was telling the child care worker emphatically, that only MAMA can take her to the potty, to get out of the bathroom, and had been in the bathroom for nearly 10 minutes.
I asked her, “Were you being mouthy?” Big jovial grin. YES! I walked back into the sanctuary just in time to see Eli’s dedication.
To celebrate Mother’s Day, Eli’s Dedication and my grandma’s 86th birthday, we all (well, Kevin went home to plant) went to a state park for a picnic. And then a short “hike”.
We relaxed in the lodge for a while.
After bidding adieu to my loved ones, we went home. Even though it was three o’clock, knowing that Kevin would be putting in another long day made it seem like a lo-o-o-o-ng time until bedtime…
