~ Busy Busy Busy
So it's been a VERY busy few weeks! We weren't as busy when the baby was born because we knew better. However, now that things are back in the groove, we've fallen right back into the crazies. I'm nannying again. I'm kicking my hairbow business (joybowtique.blogspot.com) into full swing. We jumped back into our church activities (my husband is a lay pastor and we help with the counseling ministry). Then of course just having three kids ages three and under is enough to keep us busy!
Since the last time I wrote, I found out one of my dear friends is having twin girls! She's had a long road of secondary infertility so this was extremely exciting.
This weekend, we're having our youngest (Sophia - 6 weeks old) dedicated at our church. We'll have some friends and family visiting for that. Then in just a few weeks, we'll be celebrating our son's second birthday. Then Easter. Then the Kentucky Derby. Then Mother's Day. Then our oldest's fourth birthday - Memorial Day weekend. Then Father's Day. Then Vacation. Then a break. Whew!
I went on a women's retreat this past weekend. That was great. They had a nursing mom's opportunity. So I was able to go, have my own room and bring Sophia. It was fantastic! The speaker was great. It was funny because people kept telling me how brave I was for coming with a newborn. In my opinion, it was a vacation to be away for 24 hours with just ONE kid and not all three!
A few nights ago, we had the opportunity to go to the Ringling Bros. circus with tickets we won from a local business. The kids really enjoyed it. I'm realizing in my "old" age that I don't like being around that many people any more often than I have to be! There were SO many people. Benjamin, my usual happy-go-lucky kid, was terrified by the sheer quantity of them. He insisted on being held and would not walk. So James and I were both carrying kids and Hannah fortunately walked! I'll try to get pictures uploaded soon so you can see them next time. About half way through, Hannah said, "Mom, when I grow up, I'm going to be a clown." Funny stuff!
Until next time...
