FAMILY MATTERS: Mom's Don't Get Sick Days

So I've told you all that what I wanted most of all was to be a mom and wife. It is so cool that I get to live my dream. Some days, though I'd like to throw in the towel and take a "sick day." Sometimes I'm like "Gosh I sure do love your cute little faces, but could you please stop screaming/whining at me and let me just sit here for two minutes--uninterrupted." The worst is when you actually are really sick, or really depressed, or really in pain, but you still have to get up and take care of those babies the very best you can, as if you weren't sick, depressed or in pain.  But the really neat and beautiful thing about motherhood is that we DON'T get to take the day off.

here's a quick summer rundown (in no particular order):
