For the past few days, I have had I one aching left shoulder and one burning left ear, which causes me to lose sleep at night. I swore I had an ear infection and actually went to the doctor last night to get it checked, and I rarely go to the doctor for something like that for myself, so that should tell you how bad it is bothering me. Well, the doctor tells me I have no ear infection and I just have a stress-induced ear ache. What?!!

Days go so fast and I really feel crazy most of the time, but lots of sweet things happen during the day and I try to savor it. I don't always, but I try. I am especially enjoying looking through all the drawings they make, they can sit for hours drawing and the result is always marvelous. I am kind of biased though.

Another sweet moment is when True and I were working on some writing and reading and all of a sudden Brave snuck up and started playing My Little Pony with her. It kinda drove me nuts that Brave interrupted, but it was sweet to see Brave wanting to be with True and they're really cute to watch when playing with their My Little Ponies! Those little ponies are the "it" toy of the house for the current moment.
The other day True said, "Mom, I'm the funniest. Brave is the sweetest. And Soul is the rudest."

That made me laugh really hard, but it's kind of true. Makes me wonder what Glow will be like...


  1. Too cute for words, kids really say the darnest things!

  2. So sweet..... My girls also LOVE My Little Pony! :-)

  3. Take a slice of garlic and put it in your ear, you can put a cottonball on as well to hold it in place. Some students told me their grandmas do this to them. I had an earache last year when I was pregs and I swear it worked. Even though when I saw the doctor and told her about it she thought I was crazy.

  4. wow never heard of a stress induced ear ache. This morning I felt a slight tingling sensation (like a pinching) in my inner, lower, left arm and legitimately feared I was about to have a heart attack. I kept my cell phone close just in case haha (was home alone).
    HOpe your ear/shoulder gets better. :)

  5. Love the name Glow! Hope your ear heals up fast!

  6. Now you can write a lovely tale,
    you already have the perfect title.

  7. Sorry for your ear! You should try to make some time for you to rest... Mothering can be stressfull, indeed. Happy, true, but hard work.

    A friend of mine had a (minor, but real) stress induced stroke. It was really scary!!
    She is fine now and thankfully had no side effects.

    Hugs from Brazil!

  8. So sorry about your ear :( I totally understand the stress-induced pains though- it's as if our brains are like "YES WE CAN!" and our bodies tell us, "um, NO, take a break!" When I'm stressed, I get allergies (like hives).. But I guess if I'm gonna be allergic to something, at least it's stress ;)

  9. She is sweet, too. :) They all are!!

  10. The kid's art is beautiful ... I love your girls names ... sometimes reading your blog when you speak about the girls I need to do a double take as it seems I am reading a poem ... lovely!

  11. Glow will be the toughest. :) It's a matter of survival! (I have four as well)

  12. haha! I cant imagine little soul being rude! so cute it hurts x

  13. Looks like you school a lot like I do! I make most of our worksheets. I looked into some big curriculums, but at the end of the day, it's just as easy for me to write up some sentences for her copy work!

    I'd LOVE to hear more about how your homeschooling is going!
