This Week's Juggling Act 5-19-10: My Kids' Social Calendar

Between Number 2's birthday on May 1 and St. Joel's birthday today, there has been an endless slate of "End of the Year" activities.  On a daily basis, I find myself digging through stacks of school papers or scrolling my iPhone calendar to see where someone is supposed to be next.  And that's with opting out of a few.


And just a side note, there were some Dads at these events, but I bet the other 88% of them who couldn't make it didn't feel an ounce of guilt or conflict about it.  Just a hunch!  


I honestly don't remember if my brother and I had this many events when we were kids.  Maybe we did, and my mom was just juggling it all the best she could too.

Thank you so much for stopping by Wonder and Will today and leaving a comment. I am impressed that you juggle 4 boys, as I am wondering how I am going to juggle 2 boys and 1 girl (along with homeschooling and Independent Contracting) come summertime. I keep thinking, lots of folks do it, so can't I. My Mom did it with 4 under 5at one point. But, she was far younger than I... All with God's good grace.

Anyway, I love the humor in your blog. Your sidebar list about stopping at 2 and some of the posts I glanced through - like your grocery one - really made me smile. A sense of humor an appreciation for the blessings of children are so vital!
