You know what I love most about your blog? That you are so upbeat about your day - even when listing this totally exhuasting list, you sound so happy about it :)

My hat's off (or would have been, if I had one :))!

Anyone who says moms aren't working should take a look at that list - pretty impressive!

Poltzie said...

Wow when you got to 19 I thought it was the end of the day already! Where do you get all your energy?

Steph said...

Wow! I think you are way busier than me! I'm lucky the bus even comes to pick up my pre-schooler, so I don't have any driving to do.
Props to you momma!
Now go rest!

Were you a cheerleader in highschool? Heehee!!!

Lizzy in the Burbs said...

Oh, man! I had to catch my breath there just from READING what you do in a morning! :) Honestly, I never had it that hectic, but I only had two and they are 3 and a half years apart, no comparison! My hat's off to ya!

Lizzy (hey, and eat something for goodness sake!) :)

Busy!!!! What is life going to be like when they are all in school? I get lonely just thinking about it!.....Even though, each day, month, year, brings new and exciting things.

Jessica said...

And I'm willing to bet you actually did more than those 40 things before lunch!

What a lovely family you have! I love little girls (having 2 myself!)

Stacie said...

HOLY COW GIRL.....

Amy said...

Workout?!?
Isn't that what you were doing all morning?
When my girls were both under the age of 2, I wasn't able to go to the gym, and I was in the best shape!
