Wordful Wednesday


This is actually from a month or so ago, but it's definitely my WW today.  I just posted about "being stretched" and ever since, have really felt it!  Today, the two "big kids" are home from school sick.  I can't say I'm looking forward to today's particular stretching, but I am encouraged that Ava woke up in her own bed this morning (even if she did take a slight detour for an hour or so into ours last night).

So why this picture?  Because it reminds me of how I'm starting to feel: a tad caged in.  There's a gate...I do get out...occassionally.  But with the cold season upon us, it's easy to get the "boxed in" feeling.  So I'm reminding myself that I'm not shackled to my house.  Sure, I'm not going anywhere today...during the day.  But Shane'll be home around dinner time...and I'll get out then, if I need to.

In the meantime...just look at those faces!  HOW CUTE!  Even in their "gated community".  They're very cute.  I'm very blessed.  So today...I'm going to CHOOSE JOY.  Today, I'm going to PRETEND that I've CHOSEN to stay home all day with them.  Today, I'm going to IGNORE the laundry.  Today, we're going to HAVE FUN!

I felt that way for a while so I feel your pain. They are cute though!

I think as SAHMs we all feel like that a bit - especially when it gets too cold to really be worth the effort of bundling everyone up and heading out all the time.

Adorable picture though.

Oh, my gosh, they are so cute. I loved your profile story about their surprise arrival. I would have flipped! Looks like you're managing quite well. ;)

Oh, they are so cute. I felt really caged in that first year, especially (I have 3 older, and twins). I don't know how you moms of super twins do it, life must be SO much fun.....but much more demanding. :) It does get easier though......at least with twins. :)
