This is another one of those times I wake up and say how did this happen to me? When did I become a mother of 4 and have to be so darn responsible? I think it happened over night. At least it fells that way.
my almost 13 year old (going on 19) is well... you have seen the pictures you tell me. Matt just wants to lock her in her room...forever. The twins are a lot of fun. They are interesting that is for sure. So different but still very much in sync. It is a twin thing. And then there is Tyler. My baby (not so much at 8) He is referred to as pig pen by our friends. He refuses to shower or change his clothes most days. It will be nice once we open the pool then we know he will be clean most of the time. All I can think of is that scene in Big Daddy with Adam Sandler "Are you tellin me my kid is the smelly kid in class?" I don't think it has gone that far but it could.
Tyler will be receiving his first communion this Sunday. He is pretty excited about the presents he will get. I am pretty sure that is the main reason that he did not fight us on it. He saw his brothers and his sister go through it so he knows.
I am glad that my birthday is over as much as I like attention I don't care for it as I get another year older. Now having said that this was the last birthday that I am willing to acknowledge. After today I will not be celebrating my birthday. I am going to remain 39 indefinitely.
One fun thing I did do today was book our vacation to Harry Potter World in Orlando. I am very excited about going. The kids figured out that the vacation is really for me but I told them they should not care because I am taking them with me. The hotel we are staying at has a golf course right there so Matt is happy about that. There are several swimming pool and hot tubs on the property. Plenty to do. I can hardly wait to just be there and relax for 10 days. This will be the longest vacation we have ever taken and the kids are at an age now where we can fully enjoy it. More on that later.
I guess that is all for now.
