One huge leap for Mumof4

Today is a momentous day, and I only have a few minutes to record this moment in family history for reasons that will become apparent now. Today, July 23 2009 is the first day that I will be in sole charge of all four of my boys for the entire day, and I am terrified.

I have looked after various configurations of my offspring, and indeed cared for all four of them for a few hours at a time, but thanks to meticulous planning, grandparent cajoling and spending a fortune on childcare I have never had to care for all four, single handed for an entire day.

Today, due to an unlucky alignment in my stars all my usual back up mechanisms have failed and I am now preparing to take my first small step as a solo mummy of four. Beat that Neil Armstrong.


  1. Get them to make a space rocket and spend the afternoon blasting off.

    Oh, good luck. We won't be expecting to see you on the computer front again until tomorrow!

  2. Good luck!
    If it were me I know I'd be turning to the DVD cupboard...

  3. It might be a very effective contraceptive.

  4. Well, I was going to write a comment but you'll never read it - you'll be far too tired ;-). Good luck!

  5. good luck! If only we had an extra pair of arms lol!

  6. Well done you - how did it go? xx
