Well, I'm 7 weeks out from having our newest little guy, and because of it, I've got some new things I'm trying out. Not to mention, this third pregnancy really did a number on my body. We will get to that in a minute though. It's taken me about a month to get to a place where I feel I am semi back to normal life.
If you haven't guessed it yet, I'm a pretty organized person. I love neat, clean, tidy, and organized. I also love lists. My brain is constantly thinking about what to do, what I need to do, and what I want to do.
One thing Seth and I are huge on with our children is them contributing to our family and to society. We want to raise children who are contributing to the world around them.
I've always been a bit of an introvert and a home-body. I like people, but I get energy from having alone time. I love being alone and having quiet time to myself. Getting married and having children definitely changed the amount of alone time I get each day.
A friend of my sister suggested that I do a little Q&A time to let people ask questions. So here it is!
We all know the feeling. It's 5pm, and we just start thinking about dinner. Kids are hungry. Husband is hungry. Not to mention mom is hungry too. I am not much of a meal planner.
And it has been busy! I love being efficient, but I hate being busy. But I also understand, there are just times in life that "busy" is just gonna happen. As long as I don't always feel busy, I'm fine if there are months here or there where everything just seems to pile on.
Cloth diapers have been around for a while. They've been used for thousands of years. They went "out of style" for a while when disposable diapers came on the scene, but recently, people are starting to use them again.
When my sisters and I were younger, our mom had us clean the whole house. We'd sit down and pick what rooms we wanted to do and divide up the whole house between us. My mom wasn't a clean freak, but she did like a neat house. She also expected us to do a good job when we cleaned.
My guess is most of us buy 1-2 pairs of flip flops every summer. We pick up a $3-10 pair at our local Old Navy or Target. We wear them non-stop and then throw them out at the end of August, because we've completely worn them out. Flip flops are so convenient and so easy to slip off and on all summer long.
