The Things I Can’t Keep up With

Ever since Ara was born there have been a few things I can’t seem to keep up with.

Making my own bread. It’s not that I don’t have the time to make bread, it’s just that I always forget until it’s too late in the day to get some started. I’m going to have to get more organized though because Kaed told me that he doesn’t like the “other” (aka store bought) bread and that he wants different bread (aka home made). Guess I’ve raised a bread snob!

Using my cloth diapers. There is just sooo much laundry to be done right now that the thought of doing a load of diapers every other day too just seems to be too much. However I am quickly running out of disposables and I know as soon as see the price of a box of diapers I’ll be putting Brayer back in his cloth ones.


Reading this book. Don’t get me wrong, once I start reading it I don’t want to put it down it’s just that with 3 kids, 3 and under, there just isn’t a whole lot of quiet time anymore…
Let me also point out that these are not the only things I can’t keep up with, they are just the main things I’d really like to keep up with. Maybe this week will be different, or maybe I’ll just spend more time staring at this little face…

    Stare at the little face. I know you know how quickly those little faces change. I have a stack of about 10 books sitting on a shelf waiting for me to get around to reading them. And I really want to read them. But there are so many other things that, let’s face it, are just more important right now. Like cuddles. And naps, when the chance comes along. :)

    Cute! I know we are quickly running out of disposables but my cloth diapers need new elastics in the legs and I’m so not the sewer you are!

    Maybe you should experiment with bread that rises over night? I used on of Michael Smith chef at homes recipes…you mix it the night before and just let it rise all night…you only have to punch it down once in the morning and then bake it….it uses a lot less yeast too…..
