A parent's love is whole no matter how many times divided. ~Robert Brault
Being alone with all 5 this weekend was not easy. But, I did it, and we shall all live to see another day. Every time one of the kids did something like feed all their cheerios to the heater vent -or- use a whole tube of toothpaste for finger paint, I just pictured the sweet faces you see above and it made it all ok (so maybe I did yell a little too but come on now.. a whole tube?!) There were some times when I was stretched to the max, but I always found my way to whichever munchkin needed me most. I'm going to bed with one messy house, but that's ok because I know my babies are safe and warm in their beds and that's enough for me.
