No news is good news around here.

Sorry for the blog-silence. I am swamped. I have a zillion things I want to write about, and about four seconds at a time to do it. So much is going on! Around me right now, baby is swinging away at a fish toy in her bouncy seat and the other two are marching back and forth between two shelf boxes and the piano bench and other various furniture items. While pretending to be puppies, although one of the puppies is distinctly bossier than the other.

Life is so amazing right now. Sometimes all three kids are crying or otherwise making unpleasant sounds, and I'm scrubbing who knows what off my skirt (because I thought wearing a skirt might help me somehow), thinking, if someone were to walk in here right now. . .And then all three of them are in a pile and I'm stressing out about the baby being squished, but she makes this squealing noise and Wyatt breaks out in a great big grin and Ava says, "Awww, you like me best, don't you baby?" A little later we load up in the car because those library books are about 5 days overdue, and Charlotte is scrrreeeeaming on account of how she finds the car offensive, and Wyatt is saying, "Bebe crying, bebe wants Mama!" so I hand the pacifier back to Ava, who successfully quiets the baby. I tell Ava, from the bottom of my mother-heart, THANK YOU. She smiles, blissful and proud. And then finally they are all in bed; whoops baby is up again. I get her settled again and make my tip-toe rounds, kissing cheeks, tucking in blankets, feeling the squeeze on my heart. Time is flying by on spit up and glitter covered wings, and I am swaying happily in the breeze.
