My name is batty the logic is erratty

It's true I go batty for birthdays and make myself crazy prior to the event. This year for Rylies I was sick too :( 

I ask myself and I've been asked... 

So why do I spend days on the cake weeks planning the shin dig? I do it because there's four of them and one of me. Because I don't have the time in a day to give each of them every bit of attention they need. Between working full time and all that encompasses running a household of five I feel guilty. 

I do it because I always have and they talk about their cakes year round they google ideas, draw pictures, discuss amongst each other what they should choose for their next theme. 

I do it because its now tradition one I hope they bring to their own families one day. Even though they all reassure me they're not having kids :) 

Rylies self esteem weighs heavy on my heart for many reasons and today seeing her with her bestie and her sister made me smile. She felt like a big shot and loved the attention.

Ty's 9 Rylies 8 Oliver and Olivia are in K!!

Well honestly August and September have been insane! Ty is 9, Rylie is 8, the twins are in K!!! The kids went to a garage sale up the street solo with the neighbours, I have had oodles of fun making lunches, my brakes ( on both vehicles) and tires have decided to go kaput! I'm having to switch my thinking from " why can't the other parent do what is right?!" To "no matter how tough ill figure it out and do what's right for my kids". Easier said than typed. 

I'm loving my new schedule weekends holidays and Wednesdays off its honestly like winning the jackpot for the kids and I.
Thank you mum and dad and Jeff for all you do! The childcare, the suppers, the hugs, the texts, the flowers, the gift cards, the unconditional love and for truly being there for us. We couldn't do it without you! 
I think the NyQuil has set in! Tomorrow it's manicures lunch and a birthday bash for my favourite 8 yr old most beautiful Rylie Dawn Alwyn:)
