Mornings at the Crims

Mornings with the Crims is very busy. There is no time for slacking because this mom keeps a tight rein.
5:30am- Alarm goes off, Dave is up
5:50-6:00am- I roll out of bed and shower
6:15am- Get Caleb up, we put on a cartoon and let me hear it and that usually gets him up, Dave gets him dressed and then he is off to work
6:15-6:30am- I finish getting dressed
6:30am-6:45- Get the twins up and dressed
6:45-7:00- Breakfast
7:00am-Loading up the crew
7:10am-Finish loading up the crew (2 diaper bags, my purse, the stroller, load each child by themselves, I probably make 4 to 5 trips back and forth in the house)
7:10am- Leave for work and preschool

The drill officer has spoken. LOL!!!

My little Caylin is a firecracker. She is in this stage where she cries a lot because she doesn't get her way. Caleb was sitting in my lap and she came over there and tried to bite him and push him out of my lap. I ignored her being ugly and she proceeded to roll all over the floor in a tantrum. She is very demanding and does not give up very easily at all. What do I do???????????? The other kids want attention too. I can't help but laugh because if you saw her... looks are so deceiving because she looks like a sweet babydoll :)

Something is funny

I was fixing dinner and put the babies in their highchair. Colby was still eating and laughing away. I figured that Dave was making a funny face but peeped around the corner and noticed he was playing with Caleb. I looked closely at Colby and he was holding up his spaghetti and thought that was the funniest thing. I thought to myself if spaghetti could make me that happy I would be doing all right. It is amazing to see the little things that make our kids so happy.

Easter Parade and Misc

Caleb had his first Easter parade at school and of course was the most handsome one there besides Colby. He marched out in line with his class and crossed the stage. The Easter bunny was there and he would run up to him and touch him and then leave. It was so neat to see.

Is that my child??

Looks are so deceiving!! My sweet little "angel" Caylin has started her temper tantrums. Her tantrums included throwing herself on the ground and crying. What do I do??? Colby just seems to watch her like what are you doing.

Caleb and his daddy made an Easter hat for his preschool parade. It looks so cute. I am so proud of them.

Guilt as Well

My cousin had written a note on her blog about feeling guilty for not being at home with her kids and having to work outside the home. I would love to hear others solutions and options on this matter. I totally understand her dilemma. I too feel like my kids are craving my attention. When I get home they are all on me and wanting me to hold them and that is hard to divide your attention between little babies and then get a little down time for yourself after a long day. I wish I had the luxury to work only parttime but I don't think that will ever happen. I enjoy working outside the home and it gives me a little bit of an identity for myself and the extra money does help out. It does make me sad that sometimes my kids misbehaves and maybe it is for attention eventhough it is negative. I am hard on them at times but it is because I worry so much that if I am not then they will turn out like some of my kids I teach at school and I do not want that. I am glad I get the summers off with them though. I love them and why didn't someone tell me that parenting was so hard???

No More Bottles

We have offically gotten rid of all our baby bottles and are strictly on sippy cups for all children. I can't believe no more baby bottles, does that mean my babies are growing up.

What do we do?? LOL!!
