How do they do it????
Moms that have lots of kids, that is. I am babysitting my two grandchildren this weekend and I found myself wondering, after a mere four hours yesterday morning, how my daughter in law has the strength and grace and sanity to do all that she does in a 24 hour period. This is hard work! One is 6, one is not quite 18 months...one is completely and utterly absorbed in games on my iPhone (I do not approve of so much of this, but yes, I've caved in, big time). The little one, who walks like a little cartoon character, is all smiles and laughs and is just a hoot.
But...just moving about is really a lot of work...car seats (I'm not doing so well with the buckles), making sure I have diapers, wipes, snacks, toys, you name it. I am sure this would get a lot easier if I did it more often, but for now, I'm just tickled I get to be the Mimi, not the mom, and leave all this yard work to someone who is a whole lot younger and has a lot more energy!
