Wow…..Didn’t Realize How Much Life Was Going to Change..

I had no clue that having another child was going to change our life so much. I honestly figured, we have two already, what’s one more. I had heard many times over that once you have three kids, then adding more to the mix is no big deal. I had been taking care of my niece and nephews (two boys and a girl) along with our kids on many occassions, but they are all over the age of 4 and completely independent like our two kids are. However, my kids can’t feed themselves or do some other basic things by themselves. I have been finding myself spinning around in circles for the past three weeks. The sad fact is I’ve had my husband’s help at night and in the evenings with the kids. I can’t imagine taking care of all three kids by myself 100%. I’d do it if I had to in a skinny second, but I do declare my head would be feeling like it is going to fall off before it was all over with.

I have started my new class, and already it looks like it’s totally overwhelming!! It is going to be a LONG eight weeks. I hate having to memorize so many different formulas!! This time I’m getting smart about it and setting up an Excel account though to help with the formulas.

The boys rooms are recleaned up again. Jimmy did his lessons well today. 🙂 The only thing left is for hubby to finish getting Jimmy’s computer redone, and my adding some things back on it. Then all the big projects for the day are done. I’m going to try and squeeze in some more school work.

I do declare at the rate I’m going, I should lose this weight with ease. Since I barely have time to eat. I love living a life constantly on the go!!!!!! I feel like I’m accomplishing something productive.

My hat goes out to all those mothers who do it all alone!!! I don’t ever want to have to do it alone again. I pray everyday that I won’t ever have to worry about that. Right now, there’s no sign of that being an issue, but that doesn’t mean I want to take for granted my marriage.

Well, I got to tend to youngins’. 🙂 Praising God for my family!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm Crystal. I'm married to Dale, and mother to Johnny.Some might say that my life is perfect because I get to do all the cliché wife things like cooking, cleaning, and decorating - but there's more! I also have many hobbies including needlework (crochet), sewing, and reading. My son's education is important, so we homeschool him together.
