mom moment!

i had one of those mom moments. the one you think you'll never have. it was kind of funny though, i won't lie.

for our 7th anniversary (yay us!) we got out of town and on our way up we did a session in the oakland temple. when we got there we went in to the visitor's center to see when session started etc. on out way from visitor's center to our car to deposit clothes into car, which of course required walking across the parking lot. a car came in from the road and totally unthinking i put my hand out to keep paul from walking out into the road.....which of course is silly. he's an adult and can see a car coming. 

it was subtle. i don't even think paul noticed. but i did. and inside i went "oh my goodness! i just did a mom thing." i laughed and felt silly. oh man, how time changes us.

Now that's what i'm talking about!

It's been a pretty good day. 
Yes, I really said that. 
Yes, I think I even really mean it.
Started with scriptures at 7:30.
Only 2 chapters, but isn't that better than nothing?
Then a prayer.
Yes! I remembered!
Then the craziness of getting Keith off to school.
That part wasn't so great.
BUT, while he was out, I got two kids fed and changed.
I also folded three loads of laundry while washing a fourth.
Got three kids down for naps before picking up number four.
Got in a 45 minute P90X workout, yes!
Ate lunch, fed kids.
Made bed with clean sheets. Love.
Took all four kids and dog for a walk.
(Bonus workout.)
Hung out outside after said walk and enjoyed the sunshine...
After putting two babies back down for naps.

Ahh, isn't that nice?

Oh, and Paul made dinner tonight.
Yes, I think I'll take a few more of these days please.
