Having all 4 kiddos

Well everyone and I say everyone because I absolutely love my stats feedback! Thank you everyone for reading my blogs! I hope it helps some of you! Now lately we have had all four kids for our extended vacation. I must say it has been very rough since my surgery but also very rewarding. We went to see a dolphin show! I cried (mainly from the hormone pill) because I was so happy! Our 5 year old absolutely loved it and now wants to be a dolphin trainer! Which of course I told her she can be anything that she wants to be. She is so excited. She adored watching the dolphins do flips and play around. I don’t know if it was me or her that had more fun though. That was all we talked about for 3 days straight was how awesome it was, and that we can’t wait to go back.

Well as you know I recently had a full hysterectomy at the age of 23. Now it was mandatory from all the complications I was having. I don’t like it because right now it hurts really bad, but once I heal I am so excited to live a pain free life again. The kids have been such a great help. Makayla has helped a lot with laundry cleaning, and helping mommy with the kids. Shes my little helper, even though I give her money every time she does something for me! She deserves it though, because she honestly is such a great girl when she’s here. Oh good news everyone! We will officially be getting the girls more now and I haven’t been happier. I already have so much planned from now until October. We may have a minor set back, but it will be taken care of hopefully in a respectful manner.

My husband will be going back to work here in a couple weeks which means the kiddos and I will be spending a lot of time together. I’m so happy for that, because I love the quality time we spend together. We  do a lot of fun things together because well we can. The kids are great and we have a blast. Mainly because I am still a kid at heart and they love that about me. I’m not just a mom, I’m a best friend too. You have to be a best friend to your children right now because they need that. They need a mentor to show them how to do things but a friend who is always there for them when they need it. I will always be there for my kids, no matter what. They are my everything, ALLLLL of them. Kids really just want your time and affection at these ages.

Its time for this Mama to get up and get some cleaning done! Its been really hard since my surgery, so I have fallen behind on my housework and I am going insane looking at it. So is my husband as well. It’s time to just suck it up and get it done. Have a good night everyone!

 

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.        John 14:27

My book of life

cropped-TheBusyMom.jpg

I take this with me everywhere I go! It has everything from my important dates,my father-in-laws medication list, my kids doctors information, my cleaning schedule, weekly meal planning, monthly and yearl goals, and also daily/weekly tasks to get done. This book is a life savior.

Sometimes when I misplace it, I feel like i am going to go insane without it. With all my schoolwork that I have to do and everything else with the kids and my family it gets too hard to go without it. Lately Ive needed it more and more. I just started to learn to make new inserts and I cannot wait to share them with my subscribers. I will have links to where you can print them off. I will be selling packets though on my Etsy shop that I have.

I make crib bedding and personalized name door decor. Trying to always stay on top of things is really hard. especially when you just feel overwhelmed. I get that way a lot since my husband broke his femur and has been home a lot. I feel like I have 3-5 kids to take care of! I sometimes let the housework slack becuase I dont know how to handle it all, but I always get back on track. always.

Even when I really dont want to do my schoolwork (like tonight), I still get it done because I have to. I have been struggling a lot lately on how to juggle everything, but with a little optimism and faith I can pull right out of that funk. Planners are fun to have and are very helpful for a woman like me!
