Impossible Monday Mornings

Hey Everyone! Welcome back from the weekend! This was one of those weekends where I didn't accomplish anything but surviving! While trying to write my pinned it Friday post last week one of my boys got sick and continued to be sick about 6 more times while I tried to finish my post! My  boys had a less than fun weekend, and I am ready to start fresh today. Unfortunately I woke up to a huge mess that required a bath, lots of laundry and spot cleaner. What can I say my life as a mother is so glamorous. In fact I just started writing this post and everyone was happy and content for about two seconds and now my boys are beating each other up and Scarlett has decided to rip my hair out and is now throwing a fit because I put her down. Do you ever think your kids are plotting against you?!! I mean last week my boys slept in until 9! And it was on a morning I had to get up and take Tristan to an appointment. I literally had to drag him out of bed! And today when we could have all slept in and enjoyed this lovely Monday morning, My boys are  in their room bouncing all over their beds singing "Backpack Backpack" at 6am. No one ever tells you how hard, how funny, how draining and how IMPOSSIBLE being a mother is going to be. But I wouldn't trade in my snotty shirt and messy hair for an office job any day! No Ma'am.

Last week I started to crochet my first baby afghan. I found a tutorial on YouTube and it took me a little while to get the hang of the new stitch but I finally got it down and I am a little more than half way done! I will definitely be doing more of these in my future! Crocheting is incredibly therapeutic for me and after a rough weekend it was nice to snuggle up in my bed and have some mom time and crochet every night.  Here is the progress I have made so far. I hope you enjoy!

Happy Monday!!
