Busy evening

Yesterday I really needed to get some groceries, but with Charlotte having weird naps and visiting with my cousin Jill all morning, by 4pm I still hadn't left the house. I needed to make treats for young women's, but I had no eggs. When Tucker woke up about 4:30 I rounded up the kids and my purse and headed to the WalMart Marketplace down the street. I got home about 5:30 hoping Trent would be home. No such luck. I was supposed to be at a board meeting at 6 and go straight to young women's after that. And remember I was also supposed to have treats and my kids should probably get dinner at some point. So I mix up the cookies from the premade mix and start the cookies, throw the frozen skillet dinner on the stove, and sit down to nurse my still whiney daughter ( who has insisted I hold her during this entire process). I am pretty frustrated looking at the clock to see it is now 6 o'clock and there is still no sign of Trent. Now here comes Tucker.
"Mom, I need you to find Buzz."
"Tucker," I say, " I am a little busy right now, I'm nursing Charlotte, making dinner, and baking cookies right now so you're going to have to do it yourself."
Tucker's response.
"Mom, take it easy."

Yeah- Mom... Take it easy! Gosh- it's not like you're busy or anything... ;) Kids don't seem to notice when you're in the middle of something which is made obvious by the constant knocking on the bathroom door when you're trying to pee.
Glad you liked the cds.

Fumes would have come out of my head just knowing that phrase may haven rooted from Trent's own mouth... that was my first thought anyway...

Tucker is a smart kid and surely helps you laugh when you otherwise couldn't find a way to smile. LOVE THAT BOY!
