Pity Party for One

It was one of THOSE days. I really try to stay positive most of the time (if you ask me; ask Tim and you might get a different answer), but this weekend was the exception. I've pretty much accepted that I am more house bound than the average mom. I've been trying to be better about getting out alone with the kids, but our outings consist of places like the park, Music Makers, and Kids Gone Wild...all places for kids' entertainment. I have yet to try and run errands or actually get anything productive done by myself with the babies in tow. So a lot of the things I need to go do pile up until they become a whole day full of errands....which means at some point I have to depend on someone to watch the kids while I'm pretty much gone for the day. I THOUGHT that I was going to get that kind of day on Saturday, and I won't get into the details of why I didn't, but I didn't....and I completely lost it. I might have even cried. I'm not sure why it was such a big deal this weekend....I think it was just that I thought I was going to get a chance to get everything done and was expecting to get out, so when that didn't happen....I felt sorry for myself!!! I know that I am extremely lucky. My family lives in town; Tim's family lives in town; we have friends and family around us, and we get to get out together more often than most people in our situation. My parents still even come over during the week to help while Tim is at work and I am able to go grab lunch with friends and do things I would never be able to do without all the support we have. Life is good and I have so much to be thankful for...but every once in a while, I have a little pity party.

Luckily, I'm already over it....and I'm back to being grateful and feeling blessed to have these little faces in my life. If I have to be stuck at home, and limited to visiting parks and bouncy houses, there's no one else I'd rather do it with :)

A few pics from one of our many trips to the park last week. Emma is in pink stripes and Kallie is in yellow, which by the way completely threw me off! I had let them pick out which sweater they wanted to wear and it was opposite of how I usually dress them. I kept calling them by the wrong name all day! Emma would correct me, "No, mommy....that's Emma!" pointing to herself. Lol...sorry girls!!!

I have SO much to say about this, but won't bore you to tears. Even having ONE baby at home and staying at home with him is enough to drive most parents nuts!
