"you have your hands full!" is one of those phrases I hate. I guess it's because it implies that I'm not coping-another thing I hate LOL. Or it means the kids are a chore or burden-they are not. They may be hard work at times but they are definately a joy & I am blessed to have them.
But yesterday I understood "having my hands full"
Harper refused point blank to be put down. Not even while she was sleeping. Willow is cutting eye teeth so she is clingy & needy. Tannah was not getting anywhere near enough of my attention so she was seeking it too. So I had Harper in the sling or on my boob, when I put her down I had Willow on the boob and Tannah talked all day & filled any time my lap was free.
It was hard work not to run screaming from the house.
I must say I think I rose to the challenge pretty well. I didn't make them all happy all day-there were tears from everyone at some point( myself included). But I can honestly say I did my best.
But maybe next time someone tells me I have my hands full I can say
