Our new normal...

Now that Drew is 3 months old life has settled into our new normal.  It is pretty crazy for me.  Every night before going to bed, I rush around and set out everything that we will need for the next morning.  Check backpacks and diaper bags.  Lay out clothes for kids and me to wear.  Remember to take my vitamin.  Get the coffee maker ready for the morning.  Nurse Drew one last time before bed. 

Life is crazy.  And, I am weary. 

I read a blog - An Inch of Gray:  Earlier this year her 12 year old son died in a freak accident.  In a post about a month after his death she writes how before his death she would've wished for: 1.  To lose weight   2.  Less laundry  3.  Less running around.  She says somehow she got all three and would rather have her old life back. 

So, I look around at my crazy life that is my new normal and instead of stressing out, I have to remind myself how blessed I am.  But, I will say... working with three kids is kicking my rear!


  1. Keep up the hard work girl!! I appreciate this post very much--It's so easy for me to find myself complaining in my busyness. Great reminder to stop and remember just how blessed I truly am!

  2. Thanks for the comments, Maren! I agree, we both are really blessed! :)
