I used to have more down time.
I think I’ve told you that before.
Back a few years ago when I thought I was busy – I really wasn’t. When the kids were little I thought life was pretty chaotic, and it was in its own way with formula, diapers, lack of sleep, etc… but fast forward a few years and sometimes I would give anything just to have those moments of exhaustion back. Kids grow up too fast and the next thing you know they are all in school, tearing you into multiple directions all at once. Three sets of homework, three different practices with (hopefully) different drop off and pick up times – on the same day. One child is starting subtraction; another is beginning multiplication, while the eldest is dabbling in algebra.
