For real.

We took our kids on an overnight to a little cabin by the woods and--I am not kidding or looking on the bright side or fake internet lifewashing--it was awesome. Everybody was good the whole time, even and most amazingly, me. Everybody had fun the whole time. It was like having six kids was the coolest thing ever.

I just wanted to tell you. For us, it has gotten easier. It has felt like such a long time getting here. Most of the time it is still hard and not awesome and it feels like someone is always in trouble and we're always yelling and we're always behind and I'm always disappointing everybody. But sometimes, it feels like we're getting there and we're making it and it's going to turn out OK. Ad astra per aspera, friends.

I am so happy for you.
And I want a cabin.

Rebekah, how do you always know what your readers need to hear? How do you always know what is so comforting? A light at the end of the tunnel...the darkness will turn to light...the yelling, disappointing everyone, someone always crying/being in trouble can actually maybe lift just a little??? happy sigh :)

Thank you. After yet another rough Sunday morning, I need to be reminded that it gets better.
