One of the things I love the most about Jordan's visits is how she blends in with the family. I don't treat her any different from my other three kids. When she is here, Jordan is child number four. When Jordan leaves, I miss her terribly.
Having four children is a bit more stressful. Adding one more child into the mix means more bickering, more fighting. I know my blood pressure has escalated a few times in the last few weeks.
Jordan and Suze both get car sick so both think they deserve the front seat. Of course, front seat time is never divided equally. Ask Suze, she claims Jordan sits in the front seat longer; and you know what Jordan says.
They fight in the car because someone has the music too loud; Sydney left crumbs too close to Eric; or someone is touching someone else.
One person is disappointed by our day's destination. One person is hungry, usually it's Sydney.
I love these kids so much! Why do they stress me out? My problems are so small! I am incredibly blessed, and yet I can feel my blood boil!
I am trying to learn to control myself; and take deep breaths. Time is escaping much too fast. It is scary! Soon they will be grown and I will miss these chaotic, breathless adventures.
I love these four children so much. They are my everything; my world. Yes Jordan, I mean my four children.
I LOVE YOU!!!
