You could say that four kids have definitely changed my days, and my mojo. I feel behind with all the little things that need to get done, and sometimes just plain ol’ inadequate. I had three under control, but now I just feel like I’m playing Whack-a-Mole. Whatever is looming gets priority (or whoever is loudest!).
|Sweet boy. Yes, sometimes he's loudest...but sometimes it's the bigger ones! ; )|
|I know. Looking at him sleeping is so calming. Keep thinking...Calm.|
Thank goodness, it’s definitely rewarding overall. My babies are all so sweet, and they are loving on Carter, which makes my heart grow three sizes just to watch! : ) In wanting a baby for our family, I didn’t consider how a baby would bring out the best in my other kids. Even now, I think about the work load..but overlook the fact that my kids are sharing, taking turns, and serving one another.
|...and making us laugh! (they got this from a gumball machine-love it soo much better than the sticky frogs and rings he normally gets!) And? It came with a fun accent. ; )|
I admitted to a friend last night how absolutely hard it is to have four, and she appreciated the honesty. (Oops!) She said no one else (who had four or more kids) had told her it was hard. Seriously? So is it just me that thinks it's hard? I love my kids, but it's a job to get everyone ready for school in the morning, get everyone bathed and to bed, and make sure they all feel loved on each day. I didn't say it wasn't fun or that I regretted one second, but hard? Yep. Just takes a lot of time and patience. Two things I can always work on. : )
|but how precious are these teensy feet? I just love them. : ) see-no regrets!|
