Mother..... or taxi?

"A suburban mother's role is to deliver children obstetrically once, and by car forever after."
Peter De Vries

Sorry, friends. It's been a while.

It's been a little crazy around here. While I am loving my hour or two of free time two days per week while the boys are at school, I'm also beginning to feel more like a taxi driver than a mom. Okay, not a whole lot... just a little. Still love being Mom!

So, naturally, I love this quote.

I also love that I actually had time to paint my toenails this week, without having to deal with the reaching arms of a one and three year old. And by paint, I mean actually removing the five or six layers already on my nails and replacing it with a fresh coat. They look nice, right?

Okay, maybe not pedicure worthy... but they have color on them all the same!

I hope to get around to everyone's blog this week to check in, but please forgive me if I don't make it. I'm looking forward to getting back into the swing of things once our new schedule isn't so new anymore!

Your nails look very nice! I like that quote, too. It is true...until they get their driver's license! ;-)

Thank you so much for your words of encouragement and prayers for my brother. You are a blessing.
