1 : excitement that is expressed through excessive physical and mental activity and extreme cheerfulness
2 : excessive enthusiasm : CRAZE
Excitement, excessive activity, enthusiasm, extremes. These words very much describe what my life is like. Raising four children has its share of extremes, and there is definitely never a lack of activity. To keep up with everything, I usually wake up at 6:30 am and it’s non-stop action until Midnight or 1:00 am. Even then I usually leave many things unfinished to add to my list for the next day.
“Did she say four kids?” Yes, I have four totally awesome children. Two of them are babies which adds more excitement to my life than I ever could have imagined. They also add more messes, and more poop. If I never have to wipe someone’s poop again it will be too soon. At least they’re cute, right?
Our life is one crazy adventure after another. (Seriously, you should see some of the stuff we post on Facebook pretty much daily.) So far we’ve always managed to survive and make it home. All of this “excitement” certainly gives me plenty to blog about. You know, whenever I can find the time to sit down and type it out.
A lot people ask me how I balance it all. Four kids, cooking from scratch, working from home, traveling, and everything else. My answer is, I don’t. It’s never all under control, but honestly, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
