Back to Normal

It's amazing, when you have six kids (or 5 or 4 or 8) how quickly life returns to normal after the birth of a baby. After my first baby, and even my second, things remained out of whack for what seemed like months. But, here I am with a one-week old baby and life is just like it was before...except with a wonderful new addition, of course. Oh, and I'm not pregnant anymore, which is really something to celebrate!

Back to laundry, making lunches, changing diapers, grocery shopping, homework and home school lessons. Back to paying bills, taxi service, gymnastics and baseball practice. Back to life. And you know what? I couldn't be happier.

This is the life I choose. The life I love. The life I treasure and protect. Living a boring, repetitive life, serving my family, praying for the best, and being truly grateful for all the blessings in my life. It's nice to be back.

Truly a blessing, I agree!

What an inspiring post! Thank you! I'm unexpectedly pregnant with #3 (#2 is seven months old) and I'm so worried about how I'll handler a newborn and two toddlers! Hopefully it will be a more smooth transition than it was with the previous two.

You can do it! It gets easier and easier, especially as the older ones get older (6 and up, I'd say). Congratulations on #3--he or she is meant to be!
