Mommy only has 2 hands!

Okay, I've been thinking of things to write about. I actually have a lot of things to write about, just trying to figure out where to start.
So today I thought I start with a little about me and why I picked the title "Mommy Only Has 2 Hands!"
My name is Kristi and I am a 35 (I'll be 36 in 12 days!) yr. old wife and mother of 3 boys. My husband Eddie and I have been together for 18 yrs. and married for 14 yrs. Our first son Brenden was born in August 1995, he will be the big 12 soon and that is really hard for me to believe! They grow up way to fast. Our second son, Chase was born in May of 2000. He just turned 7, but has the wisdom and smarts of a 57 yr. old. Chase has had eczema since he was about 5 months old. But that's a whole 'nother story to be told later! Our 3rd son, Logan was born in February of 2005. He is 28 mo. old now and is our wild child. Had he been our first he might have been our last, LOL! No, just kidding, but boy he is a few handfuls! They are all very sweet boys, all unique with their own different personalities. I love them more than anything, they are my life =)
Will we have more? Well, I'd like to say we would but I am just not sure. But that's another story that I'll write soon.

We also have 4 animals. My husband has a 1 1/2 yr. old Bearded Dragon named Eddie. Bren has a Ferret that is 1, his name is Chico (or Chica as we're still not sure if it's a boy or a girl!) Chase has a 5 yr. old cat named Orange Cat (ok, yes, the cat is orange! He was only 2 when he named him!) And we just got a Beagle puppy 2 weeks ago. His name is Snoopy and he is 8 weeks old now. He's all of ours but Logan thinks it's his, so we'll say he's Logan's puppy =)

In addition to taking care of my husband, 3 kids and 4 animals, I also do in home childcare. I was watching 3, 2 yr. old little cutie pie girls but now that summer is here I only have 1. When school starts again I will have 2. This way I can stay home with Logan and not only does he have some friends but I make a little extra money as well.
I also used to homeschool and am thinking about going back to it again this school year. I'll get more into that later too.

Okay, so do I really need to explain why I chose the title "Mommy Only Has 2 hands"? LOL! I feel like lately that is all I ever say! It's like they all want me to do something for them at the same time. MOM, MOM, MOM! I WANT THIS, I WANT THAT, HE HAS ONE I WANT ONE TOO! Now, I have no problem doing stuff for my kids but goodness gracious I can only do 1 thing at a time because... Mommy only has 2 hands =)
