Busy Mom's Tip # 7 Carry a spare pair of shoes in the car at all times

I stay so busy trying to juggle 50 million things at one time and you want to give 110% to each and everyone…it’s been a little easier for me since I’ve been home but it still gets chaotic…
Reason for tip # 7 happened last summer…

Alarm goes off at 5:30am, I’ve got to get ready for work – in the mean time get Anthony & Allison up and ready for school. Wake up Abby to take to daycare, after a very hectic hour and a half we’re off to the car…
All 3 kids? Check
Clothes, fed, backpacks? Check
Laptop, cell phone & office keys? Check
Buckled up? Check

And we’re off…
Go to drop off my sweet little eccentric Abigail at daycare and something’s just not right…
Backpack? Already checked
Cute little sundress? Check
Dora helmet on? Check
Matching knee pads? Check

She looks at me with those sad eyes and says, “Mommy, you’re not going to let me wear shoes today??”

Which led me to tip #7

Patience is a virtue

Patience with others is Love,
Patience with self is Hope,
Patience with God is Faith.

Just to update you...

Abby is our baby (4) ... she keeps us on our toes. To me, she is her daddy in personality and looks. She has such a zest for life. She's a natural born leader and to be the smallest in this clan... she always seems to be the one running the show.

Allison is our second (10) ... She is a perfect mixture of her dad and I. She's the most honest of the bunch and so quick to tell you what she thinks! :) She's my dependable one, I can count on her to be there to help me with whatever I need.

Just to update you...

Anthony is our oldest (11) and to smart for his own good...
or should I say for us...he's the kid that knows everything.
We're very proud of him. He's polite and respectful -just a great boy!
