Dry erase board

I was just thinking about how much I love my new dry erase board. Ya know why? I have it on my fridge and I list everything I have going on thru out the week. It's much easier than looking on the calendar at things scribbled down in little boxes. Today I looked at my nice little board and thought, "Holy crap we have a lot going on!!" Now I'm not one of those mom's that have their kids in 3 -4 different things everyday of the week- I just have a ton of kids. This is what my board says for this week- not counting all the things I do during the day such as potty training a 2 year old, caring for a 12 week old or 8-10 loads of laundry a week. I also try to squeeze in some time to exercise and make out with my husband. ;)

Isabel- gymnastics 3:30 - 5:30pm
Alec - Soccer practice 5 - 6pm

A little crazy, but oh well. See why I'm thankful for my new dry erase board? It helps keep me organized and everyone can see what's going on for the day. That way Mom can't be blamed for forgetting- although sometimes I would like to forget on purpose.

Isn't life crazy? I so rejoiced when none of my kids were interested in doing soccer anymore. But now we drive all over to go to cross country meets and parades (marching band). I always have admired women who have large families and seem to be able to be multiple places at once. Transporter technology would be so nice, wouldn't it? BTW, thanks for visiting my blog. I liked following you home and reading yours. I'll definitely be back!
