Life as Me

Things I am doing or thinking this week:

– Full day school can wait another week while I enjoy my official 2 weeks in my pj’s. I SO much love the newborn stage, just cuddling and nursing! I have amnesia already and am wanting to have another baby. How crazy is that?! But, to me it shows God’s faithfulness and kindness that I am enjoying it all so much amidst the chaos that is our life right now.

– Heading to another ophthalmology appointment today. Taking ALL six children with me. Should be interesting. SO thankful that FishBaby’s eye is almost completely healed. I am still working on writing out THAT story. It was a pretty nervelating couple days for me in the hospital when no one knew what was wrong with her eye. We didn’t see her eyeball for the first four days of life! She has beautiful blue eyes!

– Officially listed our house yesterday, as well as our rental. FishPapa has worked superhard over the last few days to get all the little details taken care of. Please pray that we have a wonderful success story to talk about….how about selling within two weeks? That’s my big dream!

– Looking for a rental in our new locale (San Diego, by the way). Thought we found a perfect one today until we heard from the owners. All we need to do is send $2600 to Nigeria and they will send us the keys! Yeah, and I’ve got a waterfall to sell you on the Canada-New York border.

Please pray that we can find just the right place for our family at just the right PRICE! My brothers said the house across the street from them is now for rent. Wouldn’t THAT be interesting? Built in babysitters!

– Am very, very thankful for my sweet little family. The days are slipping away. How can I enjoy my children to the fullest today?

  1. I was going to pop in and tell you that I used to live in San Diego, so if you had any questions…but then I read you have family out there so you’ll be all set! What a busy busy time for you guys. I love that you’re doing PJ time for two weeks. I wish all moms would give themselves permission to just relax and enjoy the early days.

    praying for you friend. AS one who has taken 3 little guys to the dr. at once, I will be praying with much empathy!
    Glad you are enjoying this time w/ the new one. What is her name? Are you going to tell us?

    I LOVE the newborn nursing relationship and I fully believe that if all moms would just relax and EMBRACE that special time, the actual breastfeeding part of it (because we know it is so much more than that!) would fall into place much easier. Good for you!

    Good luck at the ophthalmology appointment today. So glad you’re able to admire those beautiful blues now!

    Many prayers for a quick sell on your home and a successful location of a new one. Our last home (in Virginia Beach) sold within a day for over asking price, waived inspection, 100K cash down. This home, on the other hand, has been on the market since April. Sigh. I hope you have luck like we did last time! It only takes one, right? : )

  5. Glad your having a wonderful time with your new baby. That is such a wonderful time. Hope the doctor’s appointment turns out good.

    I do hope both houses sell for you. Good luck with finding a new home. I will keep praying for y’all!

  6. I am one of those anonymous loyal readers… first congrats on the new babe and second Im in the inland empire not too far from SD. Welcome back to California- if we can help you out with info of any kind let me know. 🙂

  7. Thanks for all your prayers, ladies! Keep it up!

    Tiffany and Heather, would love any input you have. (We’ll be in the North County.)

  8. I just sent you an e-mail 🙂

  9. What-only two weeks in your p.j.s? I think with my last two I was in my p.j.s for 4 months-along with not cooking! But, I figured with 5 people in diapers what’s the use of ruining your good clothes? And when you sleep throughout the day and night in 30 minute increments why get dressed? HaHa. Glad to hear you are all doing well!

      Somehow one of the links took you to an archived post. Thank you for your kind words! Our “baby” will be two in August and we did sell one of our houses last spring and have a renter in the other. God has been very good to us. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
