My Life as a Mom

Feel free to contact me:

With 6 happy kids, life can be really fun around here! This blog is dedicated to the joys and sometimes chaos of having a large family. Okay, so it's always chaos around here, but fortunately, it's almost always fun, too!

Well, my husband flew out of town again today. :(

I really hope he's enrolled in a frequent flyer program...!

This time he said he decided to NOT bring his laptop. With increased security, it was just too much trouble the last time. He had to remove the laptop from the case, and put them both through the scanner. Which isn't such a huge deal, but when added to the trouble of removing one's shoes, emptying one's pockets, removing one's jacket, then opening the belt and being personally scanned... well, let's just say he wanted to remove any obstacles he could in getting through security!

The biggest problem with his traveling is that our schedule gets thrown. And the kids used to get colds when he went out of town! Fortunately, that isn't happening now. Perhaps they've grown out of it.

I do try to give them something to look forward to every day while Dad's gone. Today we're going to make homemade ice cream, and tomorrow we'll go buy some books.

That generally helps!
