Surrounded by Chaos

Having boys means that I am constantly surrounded my chaos.

These 2 never stop moving, jumping, yelling, playing, fighting, laughing, eating, and generally making a mess.  Sometimes I feel like whenever I have to take them both to the store or to a restaurant that everyone is looking at us.  The energy level is just so freakin' high.  I crave quiet.  When they finally fall asleep at night it's like a huge accomplishment.

They are completely oblivious to how others around them view their behavior in public.  Half the time they are playing some game that only the 2 of them understand.  I dread having to run errands with them and find myself going out of my way to get things done while I am alone.  Getting them to go in the first place without a million complaints and me pleading for them to get there shoes on...

Get you shoes on...
Get your shoes on now...
Get your shoes on now PLEASE!!!!

Get in the car...
Get in the car...
Get in the car on your side!
Don't lock your brother out!
GET IN THE CAR!

Get out of the car...
Get our of the car please...
Stop playing, get out of the car NOW!

I love my boys but it's truly exhausting to be raising 2 non-stop boys.
