The End of My Rope

After a long morning with cranky and dehydrated kids...

after a short nap time with overly-tired and crying kids...

after an endless afternoon of failed potty training and entertaining kids...

after an exasperating evening of misbehaving and constant demands...

after a prolonged bedtime of inattention and incessant chatter...

after finally taking a moment for myself...

after E getting out bed to tell me C has to go potty...

C tells me, "I love you when you're Mommy,"

and I think the end of rope just may stretch a little further after all.

When Big Big Sister gets a new bike,

a big bike,

with pink sparkles,

Little Big Sister gets a "new" bike.

When Little Big Sister gets a new bike,

Bubba gets a "new" bike, too.

Well, a trike, but he doesn't know the difference.

The End of the Beginning

E's last day of kindergarten is today.

C is (finally) close to being out of diapers.

M really isn't a baby anymore.

(Sorry, West-siders, for the Cougar outfit. It was a gift; I swear! Besides, I wasn't the one who dressed him; blame Mr. Einstein.)

It's the end of many beginnings here in the Einstein household, but I couldn't be more excited to see what the future holds for all of us.

Wordless Wednesday--Memorial Day Clouds

Seen on Memorial Day.
Preceded, and followed, by rain.
