This one's for all the moms...

Look what I'm doing on a happenin' Saturday night! That's right - entertaining FOUR boys under the age of 7 !! When did I become such a mom?! And hey girls, we will get our life back eventually, right? Granted, we will have fewer brain cells (kids suck them out of us), may not be as svelte and hip, but someone please tell me this won't be my Saturday night forever...

Boys roasting marshmallows and drinking hot chocolate around the firepit - temps in the 20's but the sugar is good fuel! Me? - I'll take my Irish coffee instead, maybe by IV before the night is through since we already have one bloody lip and it's only 7 p.m.

Afterwards, trying to get them to settle down by watching "The Polar Express". It's not working...see the redhead on the couch poised in the "kick position"?

And what do you think Sailor/Hubby/Farmer is doing? Why, he's outside with a friend brewing a batch of Cream Ale and having a great ol' time. Payback's a bitch...!


  1. Oh, that looks like fun. And admit it...you wouldn't trade it for the world. It does get better. We are finally at the point were we can leave them all home alone on a Saturday night and go out- just the two of us!!! Madness!!!
    I hope you get some sleep.

  2. All I could think was lucky lucky you.
    Gosh, I miss having little ones around.
    Hope you got some rest!

  3. Hey, where do you get off peeping into my house last night? I could have sworn those pictures were taken here. I needed a beverage so badly by the time everyone went to sleep...or rather when I told them it was time to sleep.

  4. you are a good mom. a very good mom.

  5. You're raising two very happy boys and even though, right now, it seems like you'll never get adequate time for yourself (let alone WITH YOUR HUSBAND!), these years will be gone before you know it. And if you didn't choose to spend your Saturday nights like this now, you would soooo regret it when they are gone.

    Doing a good job raising your kids is the most important thing you will ever do. And you're doin' it right! Hang in there, Mom!

    P.S. Payback? Hmmm . . . what did he do for you? ;o)

    P.P.S. Ha-ha! Word Verification is BELIMP. Dat's what you be today after your boys' Saturday night!

  6. hahahaha...and I thought just having one was hard work...it sounds like you had a lot of fun with them though.

    Brewing cream ale??? I can't wait to read about that! I've always wanted to learn how to brew.

  7. subtract 2 boys, add about 65 degrees to your temps and you have our weekend exactly. LOL.
