I got this idea from 2 other bloggers (one is on my blog call "Adventures of the Bunch Family"). Of course, it seems as if I have no end to my entries to the "Mother of the Year" contests. Yes, I say contests because I have been in the running since 2006 when we brought the babies home. The latest "my adoption agency would never re-certify me if they knew this" story comes from yesterday. I have been taking the kids on a walk in the jog stroller for almost a month now- every night, without fail. They fall asleep at almost the same spot in the walk each evening! It has been heavenly. In the last few days the walks have been getting increasingly less relaxing because the kids are staying awake for longer and Andrew is "bothering" Annabelle. Last night the "bothering" consisted of him looking in her direction. I was totally fed up by the last half mile. I actually made my three year olds get out and walk the rest of the way home. In their jammies with no shoes! So there you have it... Mother of the year- I think not!
