right here

Three of four of my little boys are sickly in some way. The two littles have eye goop that just keeps pouring out. Baby B's hit him hard today. His poor eyes are a little puffy and just won't quit watering on top of the goop. Plus both of their noses stay crusty and now matter how hard I try to keep them clean, I just can't keep up with whatever in the air is bothering them.

Sometime last night I heard my biggest in the bathroom blowing his allergy ridden nose and hacking up a lung while he was at it. He woke up coughing  and hoarse. So I decided school was going to be a sick day today. Even though I quickly realized absolutely nothing else was wrong with him.

But the decision was made and I had already made up my mind I was going to clean while he "rested". Or, you know, played.

Regardless, I totally forgot how much I actual enjoy being domestic-like. You know, getting the kitchen one hundred percent clean, doing loads of laundry back to back, sweeping and mopping in the same day. I just forgot. It's been nice. I feel like I've done so much. Really, I haven't, but that sense of accomplishment is there.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy doing school with them, but I stay planted firmly on my bum the majority of the school day because at the moment, they have an issue with completing their work if I leave the room or get too far away from them. So, I stay seated and do mindless crap.

Then the thoughts swirl. I wonder if it would benefit us all if they went back to school, but I can't imagine doing that now. I just wonder.... and remember what it was like with just babies in the house, when I cleaned and did only Mommy stuff during the day, not teachery stuff. It's been a whole new experience this last year.

Then I remember. I wouldn't change our circumstances for the world. I'm quite certain this is our perfect spot in life. Here is where we belong. We are doing this right. (right for us, that is).

And miss those easier days I might. But here is where I want to be. Teaching while wiping snotty noses and eye goop. while changing diapers and folding laundry in between the busy.

Here. For the moment, I like it here.
