To all the moms out there... We have hit the whining stage and I am going crazy. 

Tell me I will survive. Please.

Today everything that was happening was exactly what he didn't want. I would give him choices and he would create his own choice that was not a choice. Every. Single. Time. 

When we drive anywhere, he thinks he gets to decide which direction we go and he always wants to go the wrong way. It's pretty much awful. 

So, when I want to plug my ears and tell him to quit, I have to remember why I love him. Like how he flaps his ears and tells me he's a butterfly. That is awesome. Every. Single. Time.

Everything All At Once

Life has been beyond busy for us...crazy...insane...

I'm a couple weeks into my night shifts. I love working nights and there is no doubt that it is the best fit for our family. I also know I don't get enough sleep during the day. And yet, I still am able to do all I need to do. I love being a nurse and a wifey and a momma. How lucky am I to do all three?!

Husband isn't much better off in the sleep department. He works during the day, takes care of the kids when I am gone, and stays up late doing his BYUI class. Every spare moment is filled to the brim with this, that, and the other. He is my superstar. I'm grateful for his love and support. 

Our kids are cuter than ever. They put up with a lot these days. Lots of time in the car running Mom and Dad to work, grumpy tired Momma, running around town house shopping, etc. P.S. My children are twins. It makes me happy. 

Speaking of house shopping...we found one. Our offer was accepted. If everything goes well, we will close at the end of the month. I am super excited. I'm going to love having a house of my own. It's been fun and such a blessing to be at my mom and dad's. I'm going to miss it in some ways, but it'll be good to be on our own again. 

We just keep swimming.  We're making it, barely. :)
