I Always Have It Together.

(except on days that end in Y.)

I never lose my cool...

and never feel frazzled.

I never let the girls say words wrong just because it is SO STINKIN' CUTE...

you'll never hear the word, "turkulator" (calculator) around this house.

And I always have our laundry done...

(except on days that end in Y.)

My kids are always under control...

and would never try to wash their own hair in the bathroom sink - "just like at the hair place!"

I'm never rushing out the door 10min behind schedule...

and always have my house picked up before we leave...

(except on days that end in Y.)

I never laugh when trying to discipline...

and always stand my ground - cuteness never wins me over.

I wouldn't let my older 3 ladies make hot chocolate on their own...

because I know that they are not qualified hot chocolate makers...yet.

I would never say "I don't want to know why on earth you would make it that thick, and you can't make me listen to your explanation."

(except on days that end in Y.)

I am super mom...

and always have it together...

because I just have SO much patience.

(except on days that end on Y.)

Love this post! Your title caught my eye on Twitter because it's been one of those days around here. I'm still looking for my Superwoman cape today if you see one lying around...

having it all together is somewhat overrated, yes? cute post. ;)

Love that post...especially with the house being picked up part..
After 5 kids I finally (somewhat) can see the beauty in NOT having it all so tidy...lol..

I "always" have it together. What are you talking about? I only have two kids and this is so true to me. Thanks for sharing this great post.

Ditto :) And I can imagine I'm only going to get even more "together" as we have more children :)

I love this! It must be the sun getting to our brains! I forgot to feed my kids lunch today...for real. I could not figure out why they were whining for snacks like crazy starved children...oh yes, they were starved!
I think your girls always look adorable, happy, and sweet...signs of a good mom!

Lady, you have it more together than most people with 2 kids do! You are such a wonderful mom (and friend!). Time spent with those little ladies is much more important than time spent doing housework! :)

This is so, so cute! :) I would LOVE for my "not picked up" to look like that, though! I can handle blankets and pillows, but all of these little matchbox cars, lacing beads, animals, play foods, crayons, train pieces, and a million-zillion other tiny things make my head spin... ;)
