So, no cards today...

I really wanted to make cards today...and make chocolate chip cookies, and shave my legs. I have gotten a really good glimpse of what life is like with children over the past 5 days. And shaving the legs takes low priority in the grand scheme of things :)

I realized that yesterday and today both, I fed all the girls a meal, but didn't ever feed myself. And I did it for breakfast and lunch today. I'm thinking this is a normal occurence in the life of a mom. You get so busy seeing to the needs of the kids, you allow your needs to take a backseat. And while it's so important to take care of them, it's important to take care of yourself as well. I was irritated, felt disgusting and had the shakes. That combo does not make a happy camper...or happy little campettes. It's been so enlightening!

My friend Misti had the great analogy of the "oxygen masks on the airplane". They always instruct you to place the oxygen mask on yourself before your children. I think that is some seriously sound advice.

So, all you moms out there...put your oxygen masks on. Your children will appreciate it!

By the way - we did make the chocolate chip cookies!
