Better Full Than Empty


Life with three little ones has been extremely busy, overwhelming and fun.

Out of pure necessity, I have ventured out with all three to a few stores and other places.  I have seriously had a handful of people watch us walking down an aisle with my boys hanging off of the cart, and say "Wow! You've got your hands full."  Now some people say it with a smile, like it is entertaining and sweet to them. Others have said it with a tone, that is not so endearing.  More like I am crazy.  Which at that point my boys are knocking things down left and right or running away, so I do feel crazy.  

I was relating this to Sally, who then said, "Do you know what your response should be when some says 'You've got your hands full,'? Better full than empty!"

And that is true.  I am so grateful to have my hands full right now.  As long as there is not any sassiness in my voice (which does happen every now and then), I will be answering to people at the store:

"Better full than empty!"

Thanks to my sister-in-law Alene for the matching ties.  She sells them at her etsy store. Check it out!


  1. Awesome- What good advice from Sally! I'm going to have to remember that one for the future too. What cute, fun boys you have and I love the picture! I can't believe you caught them all smiling at the same time! What a treasure.

    And thanks for passing on the picture of the ties! It's so fun to see such adorable boys all matching!

  2. I agree with Alene that it is amazing that you caught them all smiling. Adorable boys and adorable ties!!!

  3. They look SO cute! Especially that smile from Wesley.

  4. Your oldest is your spitting image, T! Wow, that's crazy! What a fun picture of the 3 of them. Love it!
