I know you two are excited to meet your baby brother, but this will bring on many new things. Mommy will be needing your help, and the biggest help you can give Mommy is patience.
Mommy is going to be up at all hours of the night feeding and changing your baby brother’s diapers. She’ll be tired and possibly forgetful. Baby brother is going to demand most of her time. Mommy will be in pain and healing after having baby brother. Mommy may not always be able to play with you, and this saddens me.

Today, I am 34 weeks into my 3rd pregnancy. If I’m “lucky”, I only have 6 weeks left. In the last couple weeks, the size of my belly exploded to an uncomfortable size. It grew so big so quickly, people are now joking that I could have two in there, even my husband says this (please no).
I am still not at the point where I want to be done being pregnant. I have too much to still do to want to be done being pregnant. If the baby came now (okay, how about a healthy gestational age of 37 weeks the earliest) I’d be even more overwhelmed than I am now. Nothing would get done after baby boy arrives. Once he’s here, it’s basically all about surviving those first few weeks with him, not starting projects.

You read that title right. I am not one of those moms who seem to be able to do every single thing imaginable all at once while keeping her family AND herself together. Okay, maybe that’s throwing too much into one pot, but the point is I don’t see myself being like many of my friends who do have umpteen things and come on top of it all like a boss.
But when I least expect it, I am told I’m a supermom, too. And I can’t help but internally ask, why? Is it because my kids aren’t starving and have meat on their bones? That my youngest son has a clean diaper on? Or that my oldest son knows his numbers, shapes, letters and colors?

Happy St. Patty’s Day to you all!
Wow, this week was…. uneventful. I hope I don’t lose you there! But I will keep it short and sweet.

Alright, I don’t have a specific day of the week that I do laundry. It’s usually when I see that I have nothing to wear and the hamper is ridiculously full that I’ll decide to wash clothes. It doesn’t make it any easier when the machine in my building is coin operated. We don’t always have 12 quarters on hand for one full load. Continue reading Laundry Day
Come on, let’s be honest. No matter how much you try to live your life in a state of bliss, there are some things that still fray your last nerve.

Woohoo, girls and guys! We are still around for another week! And to top it off, the school district I work for starts their Spring Break tomorrow, so I’m off until 2 Mondays from now. Mini vacay for me! (But also no income coming in, bummer.)

This is my first post on Let It Out Thursday, so bear with me if this ends up scattered and all over the place.
This Thread is where I’ll most likely be writing out what’s been going on with me in the last week. Silly shenanigans, kiddos, blah work stuff, hubby stories and so on. A perfect look through the window (you snoopers) into my life.
