Random Monday - March 24, 2014

Princess upon seeing me for the first time after I came home from the hospital: "Mommy, you're not fat anymore!  Now you're just half fat."
Ummmm, thanks?

I mentioned in Little Dude's birth story that my recovery from childbirth this time isn't going great.  That hasn't changed.  Last week, I started hemorrhaging and had to call my mom to come over and take care of the kids for me.  Thankfully, it stopped before it became a big issue, but it was still kind of scary to bleed that much so fast.

Here's the best part about my recovery being so slow this time around...we're moving!!  We currently live right outside of town in the small 2 bedroom basement apartment of a friend from church.  We outgrew this place quite a while ago, but it took us some time to find a house to buy in town.  We found one about a month and a half ago and are hoping to move either this weekend or next week sometime.  Ever tried packing for a move while recovering from childbirth, taking care of a fussy newborn, a rambunctious, mischievous toddler, a 3 year old and a 6 year old?  Yeah, it's not as easy as it sounds.  But, I am extremely thankful that we finally will be living in a place with enough space and enough rooms for all the kids to nap on the days when Hubby is at home sleeping to prepare for working a night shift.

On that note, I should probably close because I need to go pack a few more boxes while the baby's not crying!     


  1. All kinds of excitement happening over there! Congrats on your new home and good luck with your move--I hope you have lots of help with the packing and moving (and not just from your kiddos ;)

  2. Thank you! We do have help from friends and family, but so many people work that it's hard for them to help much. The kids love to help, but, well, you know how that goes :)

  3. How wonderful for you! I'd help if I lived near you. My husband and I helped my son-in-law move when our new grandson was 5 weeks old and my daughter was recovering from childbirth and trying to adjust to nursing. It's exhausting but worth it to be in a larger space. I hope you get lots of help. If not, just take it slow and easy.

    1. Awww, thank you! Yes, the extra space will be worth the exhaustion and extra work :)


Thank you for your comment! I read and appreciate every one.
