Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

I keep thinking about how great it would be to have a meeting with all the moms. Every single one of you. It wouldn’t be a meeting in a sterile board room with dress pants and hot coffee. No. It would be in my living room. And there would be toys scattered all over and…

This afternoon after we all woke up from nap time (yes, Jake and I included…we rarely miss a weekend nap), we got ready to run some errands. With a new baby, that means feeding him while Daddy gets the other kids ready to go so we can get out of the house as soon as possible….

Guess what? This was the first whole week I’ve been on my own with all four kids! And I survived! My mom’s been helping me the other weeks, but this week I wanted to go it by myself. It included two overnights by myself too, when my hubby was out of town. It feels great to…
