Hobbs is Going Back to Work

I have loved having Hobbs home with us this last week and a half, and of course in the hospital before that.  We've taken short trips to the mall, the zoo, Target, and walks outside.  Plus, he's been doing nearly everything for me as I recover from my c-section.  Tomorrow, he has to go back to work and I'm afraid.  It's going to be so hard here without him.  How do you Stay at Home Moms handle your days with 2+ kids?  I guess I'm most nervous about being so tired.  Although, Little Man has been … [Read more...]

{Wordless-ish} Birthing this Baby! Last Preg Update

Last Mommy-Daughter-Only Huzzah

There was a very low kid count at the daycare center on Good Friday so I wanted to take Cupcakes out for a fun time just her and I before Nickname-to-be-Determined (VOTE IN MY POLL --->) is out! I'll admit, I was very anxious about taking her to this huge zoo by myself, 9 months pregnant.  But we have a membership (FREE zoo admission!) and I just had to do it.  So I packed us a lunch in a light cross-body purse and found directions on the GPS. I accidentally providentially got in line … [Read more...]

7QT: Recipe, Lent, Cake & More

- 1 - Happy Friday! It's been kind of a long week, but I've been getting some overtime, which is pretty great. There was an incident at daycare this week that made me feel so bad.  I was taking my morning break on the blue couch out by the front desk and Cupcakes came skipping into my classroom to go to the bathroom.  She was expecting me to be in there as I always am, but I wasn't, as I was on break.  She started crying and even after I consoled her & she seemed better, she burst into … [Read more...]
