Can I get a do-over please?!

this has not been a good day. it started out this morning with whining children who couldn't be pleased. liberty spilled her cereal all over the floor and then proceeded to cry for me the entire time i was trying to clean up the big mess. meanwhile, leila was trying walk over the mess and i was trying to keep her out of it, which made her start crying. then i started crying and was wondering how in the world am i going to do this with THREE kids?! oh boy! later i decided to finish nadia's blanket. and let me tell you...i hate sewing satin binding on a blanket..not only do i hate it, but i am not very good at it either. i was so frustrated the blanket didn't turn out as i hoped (although jonathan says it looks great and that no one will notice the mistakes anyway...and most importantly, nadia will not care that mama messed up on her blanket). and then there's the part of me that's freaking out because i don't have everything in place and ready in case i go into labor. ugh! plus lots of other things throughout the day and the fact i feel like i've been a monster-mom today...i sure would like to wake up and start this day over again.

thankfully, my husband is home now and calming me down, leila is finishing up a nice long nap, and liberty is actually not getting into something for a change...ahhhh. and we are going to head up to brookings, oregon (about a half hour north of here) to enjoy the nice weather and pick up a few things for nadia. things are finally starting to look up today :). so, thanks for letting me vent...and be sure to say a few prayers for me if you think of us as we are getting ready for our 3rd baby girl and trying to figure out this thing called life!

I think all mommies have days like this--at least I know I do! You're a good mom and your kids know it better than anyone else. :) Hang in there!

You are going to be a great mother to three. It's just those last minute jitters and tons of hormones racing through your body.

I so know how it is though. It seems like everything happens at once and then the kids get upset and it's all downhill. You just have to remember to breathe! You will be just fine!
