Keepin' it real on the farm

The moments I capture with our camera just happen to be the moments I'm not covered up with sad faces, runny noses and weird bathroom rollings.
So in all fairness I thought I'd share some of the not so perfect moments in our life.
My boys get too rough and my girls well they're delicate. I still say the same thing 100 times a day and I wonder often if anyone ever listens to me.
My boys argue over whose going to be buzz light-year. I'm serious I have to put people to bed for this one..."I'm buzz" no "I'm buzz" "you're always buzz" etc....
I look around and think to myself "this is not happening."
There is world hunger and my boys are fighting over who's going to be stinkin' buzz.
In between the tattle telling and
hurt feelings, I attempt to do school.
Some days the yellow school bus taunts me from afar as I wonder how in the world I can do this for another 20 years. :)
One of my sons still pees in my friends yards (quite unexpectedly I assure you) I often times see it coming and try to stop the little black behind from being exposed but I don't get there fast enough..Oops, I didn't say black, I meant cream...
Our trips to walmart, I have to admit, are sometimes embarrassing when they pile out of the big red van and I realize Channie doesn't have panties on under her long dress. (this has only happened once...ok, twice)
Jo has shoes but they're two different kind and wrong feet.
You get the picture and it's not pretty.
This is where I'll stop and look at the rest of them and say "Do I have to tell you guys to breathe? shoes and panties are important..... ok, when we get stares in here remember I can't think of everything. Your gonna have to step up. This will be a good lesson for all of us in the humility department." shewww you've just got to hear one of my world famous mama speeches...But I wouldn't try this one, it doesn't seem to work most days.....
So just keeping it real over here...I could go on but my children's reputation is at stake..
I'm just saying the ole farm has her days but I wouldn't trade it for anything else in the world.....
Y'all come back now, ya hear?

I am laughing my head off!! And we can very much relate! I love the way you always share REAL life. Too often I try to make people think life is all just wonderful. But the frustrating days always pop up. Very encouraging Mrs. Robin.

Thanks for your transparency Robin! Sometimes, I just wander if I'm the only one who has these issues, and I just ask myself, "Why can't I just seem to get it all together? SO and So's kids act so perfect, I bet she never loses it, of has to deal with these issues." It all comes down to mama's attitude doesn't it?

I was mortified one Sunday when we arrived at church and my 2yo daughter climbed down from our van with no underwear on. I had asked her 9yo sister to put them on her. Thankfully there were pullups in the nursery that saved me a 30 minute trip home and back!

I appreciate all your posts! Lifting you all up in prayer as you grow with your new additions!
