Having a moment to myself.

(I will probably use this in some journaling on a layout to remind myself in the future of what it was like to be a mommy of little ones. Sorry for the long post. I needed to get it out of my system... and to see on paper that I did accomplish a lot today. Now- off to wash up some more dishes, clean up the table from dinner... and maybe play with my new stamps. Sleep- eh, who cares about sleep?)

oh dear, you have totally shifted me back into about 3 1/2 years ago. I forgot. It gets better. Thanks for the reminder. It does go by quickly.

BTW- envelope system has been in effect at our house too. Turned into a rather long term thing. It's good.
