Just What I Needed.

So yesterday was a pretty long day for me....I had all four boys and of course Tayden was being very needy and Kole was actually acting that way a little bit too...which is so not like him. I got through the afternoon and by 4:00 it was time for me to go to Scouts. I loaded all four boys up and headed over....it just went downhill from there. I ended up carrying both babies around for as long as I could because they were both fussy and would not let me put them down or go to someone else. I ended up leaving early....almost in tears, and feeling like I had been more of a distraction than a help with the scouts. It was a serious flash back to being by myself while Jared was deployed, but instead of one baby...it was four kids. I am in a new ward, new calling, without my husband...serious deja vu. I was really tired and frustrated. I got up today and felt like I had a lot to get done, and out of no where Cynthia (the lady I do scouts with) called me and asked if Boston wanted to come and play with Trevor (her son who is 4). I was so excited that she called. It was just what we needed not only for me to get some time to get things done while Tayden would sleep, but for Boston to have someone to play with that lives so close. She must have known that I am just a little too cowardly to call and ask something as easy as that when I am in a new situation like this....I feel very touched as lame as that may sound but it is really hard for me to take that first step out of my comfort zone....so thank you to Cynthia....this has made my week so much better...now just one more day till Jared comes home. Sigh....

I have thought many times lately about how I could never do what you have had to do. You're such a trooper!
