I realized it will be MANY months before I will be able to go to church by myself. (Carl usually runs video for church so it WAS rare that we actually went together…oh but that has changed.)

Between Carl and myself we ran the whole time we were there. I was exhausted by the end of the morning and all I kept thinking was, “How in the world am I ever going to leave my house with all of my children?”

My answer…can I admit this on a blog?

Each boy needs a harness.

This truly is for their own safety. They run and dart and think it is the funniest thing in the whole world. And they are boys…I know because I grew up with 6 of them. I have actually lived with boys a whole lot longer than I have with my girls. So none of this surprises me really. I was just kind of hoping one of them would like to stay by me and I only had to chase one. Two running in opposite directions doesn’t work very well.


Now for the new rule at our house.

You must sit to pee. I am sorry for all you macho males out there. I have cleaned up more urine off the wall, side of the toilet, floor and many other places need not mention than I care to. This will be in effect indefinitely…or until I install a urinal.
