Signing up for all of this extra-curricular stuff seemed liked a good idea.... in July and August ....when school and homework were not even a thought. But, all of my July and August "brillian plans" sure made for a very busy September and October! Luckily, the calendar is full of lots of fun stuff. Lots, and lots and LOTS of fun stuff!!
When my kids were younger and moms that had older triplets said that as they get older, it doesn't really "get easier", it just "gets different", I didn't believe them. I actually remember thinking that they were either lying, or had really bad memories. I TOTALLY get it now!!
When I go to bed at night, I am exhausted!! Seriously, I am not any less exhausted than when I was chasing 2, or 3, or 4 year olds. I never would have believed it, but life is the same amount "hard" as it was a few years ago. It is definitely different though...I've traded in my days of potty training for days of teaching shoe tying and spelling words. I no longer hear whining about naps, but hear whining about doing homework and not having enough time to just play. I don't have to tell the boys to not open the cabinets over and over again, but I do have to tell them to make their bed/clean their room/use soap in the shower over, and over, and OVER again. We've traded in playdates for Den meetings. And, I thought things were tough a few years ago because we couldn't go anywhere and were home. all. of. the. time. Now, we are NEVER home! It's crazy.
So, that's what has been going us with us. Life is good...busy, but good. :)
Now, Good Night....I'm going to BED!!
