Last night my mom came over like she does on most Thursdays,which is super nice of her. Usually I stay home and just try to get some extra stuff done because I know it's hard for her to be alone with 3 little ones since she has arthritis in her knees. She always tells me to go, if I need to run errands to go ahead, but I usually don't because I feel bad. Yesterday though I finally did, I went to Target for a little over an hour and it was so nice to be able to relax and shop alone, without having to rush because someone is crabby or tired. I love being with my little guys, but sometimes an hour away is all I need to feel refreshed. These last few days have been stressful with lots of tantrums and tears, and mommy was starting to get a bit crabby herself, but now all seems better. Even though today was still filled with lots of crying I feel a little more relaxed about it. Declan is totally going through this clingy mommy phase right now that I know in a few years I will miss, but all he wants me to do is hold him all the time otherwise he cries and cries, you get the picture. Plus, yesterday Liam had a fit and refused to go to his swimming class and I wasn't in the mood to make him since I take everyone with it's not worth it if he's not cooperating, and then when it was too late to go he decided he wanted to go and was upset it was over. I'm sure you know how those days are when there doesn't seem to be a moment in the day where someone is not crying. So it was nice to get out even if it was just for an hour trip to Target. I came home and my mom said everyone was great and happy the whole time I was gone. Then as soon as I walked in Declan started crying again. Don't you love how they save their best behavior for you :)
I like to think Rory is just making a scary face.
