The Rat Race

Sometimes life is overwhelming. sometimes the house is out of control, the kids won't stop fighting, dinner doesn't get made, homework doesn't get don't, an appointment gets forgotten, and the list goes on and on.

This week has been one of those sometimes moments. Like all week.... yeah fun!

Somehow I make it through, the still small voice calls my name... I am here, I am holding you, you'll make it through this, I am here... every time!

Today Makenzie's therapist showed up late, the house was a mess, Makenzie still needed to eat lunch,and get dressed. I needed to get ready to walk out the door to drop Makenzie off. Then I had 2 hours to get groceries, clean up, make some phone calls, reply to some emails and eat.

At one point I just had to stop and breath. Running late... really really late! 30 mins until school starts. One thing at a time.. breath in.... breath out....

1. Feed Makenzie (not fun in a hurry but she cooperates and eats super well.)


2. Change Makenzie's diaper and get her dressed


3.Do Makenzie's hair

Na.... not today... looks good enough

4. Shoes on


5. Mommy Dressed


6. Load into the car


7. Back into the house to get the talker


8. Leave the driveway 15 mins late

Oooops Check, Check, and Check again!

Now I could breath a bit but still running short on time. Off to do all my errands, go back to pick up Makenzie from school so that I could feed her again, feed the boys, bath, hair, formula, nite nite songs, more clean up, phone calls, tuck the boys in, blog, and bed.

Breath in, Breath out and repeat like 10 times!

The key is... I am still breathing! The kids are in bed and I am on my way there too. Then the rat race begins again in the morning!

On a side note.... I am going hold half of Makenzie's J tube feed tonight and try to bolus G tube feed her tomorrow with some whole blended foods. Please pray that she will tolerate this as it will be a huge step in the right direction to being a complete oral eater! Pray!!!!

Believe... Prayer Works!

"You guide me with your instruction and at the end you will receive me with honor."

Oh, I feel you! But as long as we keep breathing, we will make it through!

I just have to say I just love all the pictures of Mackenzie. She is just such a beautiful girl, with a wonderful smile! And I love the videos in the last post of her eating. She is doing such a great job!

Have a great weekend!
