All by myself!

Today has been the true test to see if I can handle three kids at home, all by my self. My parents have a training in Orem 8am -6pm for the next 3 days, and Darin is back at work. Overall things haven't been going too badly. Breakfast was a little hairy. All three kids were hungry at the same time. So I was trying to get food for Vi & Ashton with one arm, while holding Myra in the other. We ended up with a cup of milk all over the counter and floor, a bowl of oatmeal, face down on the floor, and at lunch, a cup of peaches all over the chair. Whew, that was a lot of food mess. The peaches were especially sticky.

I was able to play some Candy Land with Vi before Myra woke up. Ashton didn't take a nap, surprise, surprise. Sometimes I don't know how Myra sleeps through some of the noise, but she does. She had a pretty good night. Slept for 3 hours in her swing & two hours in her cradle. Then she was in my bed for the last few hours. Not bad. Dinner is in the crock pot = thanks Mom! Hopefully I can last the rest of the afternoon. Everyone should be home by 7pm. I might survive this after all!

Congrats to our heart friend Kaidence, who was listed on UNOS today for her new heart. We hope the pager goes off soon!

Congrats on surviving day one! I'm terrified about being at home with 3 kids by myself . . . luckily I still have a few months before that will come.
