yada, yada, yada...stuff and a sort of recipe

It seems like I have eight million blog posts running around in my head...but I can't get them out of my head and onto the screen.
It's getting crowded in my brain.
Life and children take a lot of time...I'm not sure how REAL bloggers do it.
And Hubs has been traveling, so that means I am solely responsible for keeping the Kinder alive.

Mildly stressful, and yet everyday those little boogers do at least one thing to make it all worth it for me.

furby, sort of the best thing ever

Lately the baby has been answering "Me!" to certain questions...
"Who's ready for lunch?"
"Who wants to go for a ride in the stroller?"
Hearing his enthusiastic and adorable answer is the best thing.

Mr. Three had a challenging week, he missed daddy, had a little incident at school and was a total grump yesterday. But when I had a massive stress headache he played nicely and quietly with his brother so I could have a little rest on the couch.
And then he gave me a bunch of kisses and hugs "to get better."
Yep. Totally keeping him.
Also, the only Halloween candy he wants to eat is smarties, tootsie rolls, suckers and starburst. You'll never guess where all of his chocolate bars are... ;)

So by last night I was frazzled, but didn't feel like baking and had already eaten all of the good Halloween candy. I needed some chocolate. Amanda wrote about pumpkin bread with a Nutella cheesecake filling and I was sort of (100%) obsessing about that...

I ended up mixing together a spoonful of cream cheese, a spoonful of Nutella and just a little squeeze of honey. I ate it with Graham crackers and it was perfect.
That's a sort of recipe...not to be confused with a recipe-ish (have you seen this blog? I want Leslie to be my new best internet friend!!)

Tomorrow's Friday!

After posting everyday last month, there is NO WAY I would (or should I say COULD?) be a "real" blogger. No time for anything else......didn't like that one bit. I care too much about being a mom :)

NOT that real bloggers aren't good moms - sheesh. I should rephrase that.

"I could not be the kind of mother that I want to be if I have too many other responsibilities. Working, being patient and loving towards five children, and keeping a husband happy are ENOUGH for me."

That's my official statement.

This picture is now my desktop photo! BTW - when any time someone stops by my office I hold them hostage and say, "wanna see my nephews?" which is really not a question - and then we ooohhh and awe over how adorable your children are!

Also, you are doing a great job - I couldn't fathom doing all the stuff you do esp. with the hubs traveling all the time.
