I'm a mom of four boys. Help!!!!

I'm thirty years old. I will be married for seven years this month. I have four boys. Koen will be six tomorrow, Eades will be 5 in July, Dougan is 3, and Brandis is 1 yr, old. My boys are very active. They love to run and play and just be boys. Sometimes it gets so crazy at home. Like tonight. The three older boys came running into the dining room each wielding a make shift sword. Two had the sticks from the blinds and the other had a little kid broom stick. I had to stop that party. Luckily they know how to play swords without actually hurting each other, so no e.r. visits were required. The only thing I can do is take one day at a time and enjoy the times good times like when Eades says I'm his best friend, or when Koen asks me a deep question and believes that I'll know the answer. I am grateful that I get to stay home to watch Brandis do all his firsts and develop his personality, and I love Dougan and his knock-knock jokes. Here's a sample; "Knock Knock" "Who's there?" "Monster...Hee hee hee, laugh!!"
So I guess even though it's hard to have these small, wild, guys of mine, it's totally worth it when I sit back and see how blessed I am.
