I have two kids and my older sister has 4 plus one she's fostering. 6 out of the 7 are 5 years old or younger, I call them the kidmob. Cause they're NUTS!
Today my sister and her older daughter went off on a field trip for school, I stayed home sick and my husband and I watched three of my sisters kids and our youngest.
What a day.
By 4 pm my voice was totally gone and my husband threw up all over the dishes in the sink. And apologized while he was puking. What a guy I married. The house is trashed, I'm exhausted but my older son was so excited to come home to see his cousins and a pre-planned chocolate cake with chocolate frosting.
Needless to say it was a taxing day. My niece and nephews were great all day, they're super sweet kids with awesome little personalities. But I came into the day tired and low, you need a lot of energy for those kids.
So tomorrow it's just me and my little guy all day while Dad's at work (unless he continues throwing up) and the big guy is at kindergarten. Why they have school on Veteran's day is beyond me, but it's a minimum day. If I get all the clean laundry put away and a few photos of some knitting I will be pleased.
