The Trials of a Busy Mom

Happy Happy Joy Joy

The headache is gone. I am happy about that. And check out this picture that Megan took of me. Pretty good, I must say.

Thanks to my friend Tess, who encouraged me to take the kids swimming yesterday. We met Tess and her sister-in-law with all our kids at the Lehi Legacy Center pool, along with the rest of Northern Utah County who are also on spring break. Even though it was crowded, it was fun. John was a bit timid at first, choosing to sit on my lap in the 18 inch deep water, but eventually he was jumping and splashing and running around.

The worst part was that sense of panic when I couldn’t find all five of my kids. Wet blonde head one, wet blonde head two, WHERE’s WET BLONDE HEAD NUMBER THREE? Oh, there she is. She’s taken the life jacket off and put on a different one, so I didn’t recognize her at first. Tess was a great help in helping me find my children. The second worst part was the noise LEVEL in that place.

But it was a fun adventure for a cold and dreary spring break day. When we came out, it was actually snowing. What in the world? Yes, snow. But we were already wet, so it really didn’t matter. So, we’ll continue to have some kind of fun for our spring break. We’re hoping it warms up enough to go to the zoo.

    I agree – great picture of my beautiful friend!

    The only good thing about the noise at that pool was how very, very quiet my house seemed when I got home – even with the chaos of kids and neighbors coming through – it was pure peace in comparison. Plus, we all slept sooo good last night. Thanks for coming along, friend. It is always more fun with friends along…both for the kids and for me, too.
