felt good today. Mowed the lawn this morning. Felt a lot better than last year when I was mowing it pregnant. Sasha would do it or pay someone but I'm weird about it. He mows it crooked and that makes me crazy...and it's just so expensive to pay someone for something that you only have to do once a week for 1/2 hour. I'm glad William is here safe and sound and that I can mow the lawn without killing myself to do it. :)
I NEVER take those facebook quizzes but I took one last night. It was the how many kids you should have one. Very dumb little quiz that basically matches your ability to deal with mess and chaos with your ability to be a good mother. It said I should have 2-3...so who should I get rid of? I'm not a clean freak and I can handle a little clutter and grime but who's to say that someone who can handle a lot of mess would be a good mother. I feel really sorry for kids that live with a mom that can handle it and never teaches them to clean up.
It also made me grateful that I have the gospel in my life. In a way the test was probably accurate...I did start feeling completely overwhelmed with 3 kids and part of that is probably my perfectionism problem. More laid back ladies probably can handle more kids without going crazy. I have, however, because of my faith and my religion wanted a large family. I think I'm handling it better than a lot of people would. I get compliments on my mothering everywhere I go...but honestly if it weren't for the gospel I wouldn't have kept going and having this family because I would have given up on myself and not kept trying to be a good mom.
So can you tell I didn't get a run in with Luz this week? I have to blab on the blog more...hopefully next week I won't have a major medical thing going on. I have in the last few months ...horribly sick kids, insomnia, leg problems, mastitis and a root canal messing with my ability to get up in the morning..we'll see what tomorrow brings. :)
