Today is one of those days where I look at the clock and think, "How is it already four o'clock?" and at the exact same time think, "How is it only four o'clock?!" I look around the house and feel like I have accomplished nothing.

Question: WHAT DID I DO BEFORE I HAD KIDS? Seriously, I think about the 2.5 years between the end of pharmacy school and when Zane was born and wonder....how did i not have a spotless house at all times? Why was there not a hot, homecooked meal on the table every night that I wasn't working? Why didn't I exercise more? Probably because I slept late, took naps, and watched trashy tv.

Anyway, today is one of those days that kind of drags on and I'm ready for some adult conversation. It may look like I haven't done a darn thing around here, but I have to remind myself that I've fed two kids breakfast and lunch and cleaned that up. I have dinner in the crock pot. I have clothes in the washer, in the dryer, a load folded....and a load or two piled on the guest bed waiting to be folded. We played outside. We heard the ice cream truck and Zane and I raced inside to find his 'ice cream money' that Mama Doot had sent him. He got a Spiderman popsicle. Of course. And then he had a bath. And now both kids are napping. Rare. I have to get my ipad time in now. Zane loves to play games or watch shows on the ipad and Hollin likes to go through facebook and "like" lots of statuses. :) Today I used my alone time to order Hollin's birthday outfit and a couple of birthday presents for friends.

I'm not complaining. Or bragging. Just documenting life. Sometimes the days drag on. But the years fly by. These two are living proof of that.

How lucky you are to be able to stay home with those two. I long to be able to do that, and then sometimes I am so thankful that my mom is stuck doing the hard work all day. Being a mom and a wife is no joke! It seriously is the hardest longest job ever!
