The more kids we have the more time we spend looking for things. I think be the time we are done, it is safe to say that all will be lost. (as far as material goods are concerned)
10. The Floor
9. My Wallet
I have finally learned to put it on a nice high shelf. Lucky for me, they have graduated to raiding Abby’s purse.
8. My Wedding Ring & Watches
I have no idea if they were flushed, or if they were put in the diaper genie, or maybe they are just mixed in with the toys. Either way, I haven’t seen them in a couple months. Can you let me know if you find them please?
7. The Last Piece of The Puzzle
I think they are visiting the socks that disappeared
When I take them away, they seem to find 5 of them in random places. But when there is a major fit being thrown…not a one in sight.
5. Sippy Cups
When I do find them, they have 10 day old fermented juice or yogurt that used to be milk in them. Yummy!!
4. Car Keys
One of these days I will learn my lesson and put them in the highest place possible… dangling from a string…with alarms that are set off by lasers.
3. Baby Wipes
It never fails. I get a diaper all opened up to find a big ole poop, and I can’t find the wipes. I either left them in another room, the kids hid them, or we ran out and I thought we had more. Sorry, son. That’s going back on till I can find the wipes or a piece of clothing I don’t care about.
2. Matching Shoes
It’s either all lefts or all rights, am I right?
Time for what? Cooking, cleaning, movies, video games, reading a book, showers, sex, alone time with spouse, alone time alone, sleep, writing, thinking, exercise…
In all honesty, it may seem like we don’t have time for the little things, but we make it happen anyway. The little things are what make us such a happy family. Here we are with 5 kids. 8, 2 ½, 1 ½, 7 months, and our newly adopted 2 week old. That’s 1 kid in school, 4 kids in diapers (hopefully 3 pretty soon), 2 kids on the bottle, and 7 people to get ready for church on Sundays… and we couldn’t be happier. If God has given us anything, he has given us a job. He has given Abby and I this family to raise. Thankfully we said yes, even if we can’t seem to find anything.
