You know you live with little people when...

Life's been pretty busy around here these days... here's a glimpse (via instagram) of what we've been up to! Last week i braved a visit to the zoo with all three littles.. It actually went great! ~ evidence of God's grace. I love giving my energy and time to these little guys and am so thankful that we've been entrusted by God to raise them up and teach them the way they should go... 

It's usually a lot of fun, and exhausting all in one! In a moment of sleep deprivation i wrote this list. Enjoy!

You know you live with little people when...
  1. Your spotify list is dominated by toddler tunes
  2. You’ve become proficient at typing with one hand
  3. You’ve invented a new game called diaper ball (aka. Getting the diaper as close to the garbage as possible while attending to a baby/multiple unpredictable little people so as to make the slam dunk easier later when you acutally find 1.3sec in your day to dispose of them!)
  4. You often hum tunes to the latest show your child is addicted to long after they’ve gone to bed
  5. You know what a swaddle is and you ain’t afraid to use it
  6. You beg your 3 year old to go to bed… so you can go to bed!
  7. Your living room looks like a toy store exploded in the middle of it
  8. You run your washing machine at least once a day (twice if you do cloth diapers)
  9. Your new form of accessorizing is spit up, nose goo… or other bodily fluids
  10. You realize while making your sons birthday cake that the ‘buttercream frosting’ scent is the perfume you’ve been sporting lately
  11. You can’t remember the last time you had a shower
  12. You have sticky floors
  13. You’ve pretty much given up on cleaning windows, mirrors and floors altogether… at least for a time!
  14. "Going out" means going to the park... and is often accompanied by the tune, "outside, outside, everybody go outside!" 
  15. Your caffeinated drink of choice gets you through the day
  16. ‘weekends’ or ‘days off’ seem like a dream from your distant past
  17. The meaning of “delirious” and “sleep deprived” have been taken to new levels
  18. You have little people who say, “thank you, mommy!” or soon will... and little arms to give you hugs at night!

Start children off on the way they should go,
    and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
~ Proverbs 22:6 ~
