Shaving my Legs & Potty Training

This morning I dragged myself out of bed early to get ready.

It was our first official day of preschool and I was taking Meredith and staying while Mike stayed home with the kids. Not because I couldn't stand to see my little girl leave for preschool, but because we need two adults there. So I got some peace and quiet and sat at the front desk to answer phones and greet anyone who came in.

(Note: the phones didn't ring and no one except parents dropping off and picking up the children came.)

So while I was in the shower at an ungodly hour of the morning I was trying to decide what to wear. I thought grey walking shorts and green hoodie sweater would be cute, but required me to shave my legs.

After my shower I got dressed and noticed that I forgot to shave my legs.

The "old Jenn" would have changed or at least dry shaved on the side of the tub, but the new relaxed Jenn decided if anyone was close enough to see my legs I probably had other problems.

See I'm working on the OCD stuff.

Thankfully at the time I didn't think of the cute doctors that would be taking care of me should I be in an accident and would see my unshaven legs!

I did have clean under wear on though!

Speaking of under wear (see how I tied that in...amazing isn't it!), Jeffrey is now on day three of being completely dry through the day! Hallelujah!

Never mind that I bought a giant box of diapers last week at Costco for $37!!! I think diapers have gone up in price!!!!

This does however mean that he should soon accompany Meredith to preschool and for two hours, three days a week I will have one child! WOW!!!

Of course then I'll have to get five children up, dressed and fed by 8am three days a more walking shorts and shaved legs for a while!!!

You're so right about not shaving and not caring! I am daring at times and don't shave AND go to the gym all in the same day!!! Now that's getting out of the ocd comfort zone for sure!!! Way to go! :)

Ha! One of the benefits of homeschooling - getting up late, eating breakfast at 8:30 in PJ's and doing school in those same PJ's! No early morning rush here. I knew there had to be a benefit to all of this! LOL! :o)

What? Walking shorts in Billings in January? Don't bother with shaving and put on some PANTS!!

Is is really that warm up there? We haven't seen the ground sans snow here since well before Christmas. I don't know how you care for 6 children every day. I feel overwhelmed at times with my one toddler. Home schooling one or two children is sounding better and better.

I'm also with Chris...I have no idea how you manage a family of 8 (you've got to include yourself in their somewhere, right?)! I like reading about your fascinating life! :)
