I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

An Encounter

I was in the grocery store today. Peyton was strapped to me, Erin was in the cart and Lara was hanging off of it.

A 20 something man came up to me, smiled and said "wow...3 kids. Are they yours?"

I smiled back and said " Why yes they are...can you tell by the bags under my eyes?"

He laughed a little and said "no, actually I was just going to say that you look so young to have 3 kids. In fact you look amazing. You are beautiful and so energetic. Your husband is such a lucky man."

I blushed, and said Thank you...yes he is pretty lucky...and I carried on my shopping feeling pretty good.

o.k so that never happened....it is my blog and I can write what I want. Would be nice though ;)

You have me cracking up right now! :o)

That's right...we can all dream and we can write what we want (within good reason). :)

LMFAO! You had me hook, line and sinker on that one b/c I can believe it would happen to you (in fact Melissa commented that you didn't look like Peyton could be yours when she saw you wearing him in Sept.). I was actually thinking that that guy's wife or girlfriend was lucky if he was that great w/ compliments!
