Parents how do you get it done?

We just wrapped up a garage sale in preparation for the twins heading to college and I ask myself the same question, Ryan. In the early years...late night was the answer...now it's mornings! Without my wonderful wife...nothing would have gotten done. I only cook, do groceries and all home/lawn care. She does everything else (incredibly well I might add). Looking at all the kids' old books, toys, art sets, etc made me notice a bit, how much has gone by in the past 18 years. Never regretted leaving dishes in the sink, but do regret times I was "too busy" to do something with the kids...I sooooo hope we have 1 more Adirondack camping trip left in us as a family! Now the garage sale is over, we might be able to make it happen before they head in different directions on I-87. 3 weeks and counting.
wow! as a parent of younger kids, this helps keep it in perspective.

All I can say is that it took teamwork. My folks are an awe-inspiring team. It couldn't have been easy to hold all that down for all those years, but they did it amazingly well.
I am a lucky, lucky grrrl.
