Life lately, has been hectic to say the very least.
I wanted to give a little update on the things going on around here, so you understand if I don’t post as much on Facebook or Twitter. I’m doing my best to keep up with it all but some days I’m just not able to get to the social media side of things. I’m SUPER thankful for my awesome contributors who are helping me by sharing some fantastic recipes and fun crafts!
You may know that our family has been living in a small apartment for the last few years. We’ve been saving our pennies for a house and we’re finally on the hunt for one! We have to be out of our apartment in less than 2 months so I’ve been busy packing and trying to figure out where to put boxes, as well as meeting with our realtor and touring homes.
The kids and I just got back from a week-long trip to San Antonio (will be sharing more on that next week) and I’m still trying to catch up on dishes and laundry from that. Or maybe it’s just life, constantly trying to “catch up” only to do the exact same thing again tomorrow. . .
Oh, and did I mention book editing? I’m still working on the final edits and formatting to bring you a print copy of my book When Baby Becomes Big Sibling! This one gets pushed to the very back burner at times, but I’m hoping to carve out some time for it this weekend.
The 3 year old has hit an interesting stage (more on that later too) and I realized that I need to be playing with him more one-on-one. He’s becoming so independent it’s easy for me to just let him play happily by himself while I rush about the house trying to scrub everything and pack boxes. But he still needs me, even when he’s able to play by himself for greater lengths of time.
This is motherhood. This is life. Figuring it out as I go.
How has your life been going lately? Hectic? Just cruising? Fun? Share in the comments!
Do what you can when you can. Our kiddos always come first. We’re all patient and can wait. :) And exciting on a house!
Thank you! :)

I love blogging but keeping up with all the different aspects of building your blog can be beyond time consuming. Oh well… better go check my Pinterest account! :)

I’ve been going through a lot too and am so behind on reading blogs and stuff. So excited to hear about you guys moving. I can’t believe your son is playing well by himself. My son is just the opposite! I can’t seem to get anything done because he demands my attention all day long and he won’t play by himself! That’s frustrating!
Anyway, I do see your photos and pictures and even though I don’t read every post, I still try to keep up and am so glad that we are bloggy friends!
I bet that is frustarting! My boy was there a few months ago, so this is a welcome change, the problem is that I tend to let him play by himself (since he’ll do it now) and by the end of the day he’s throwing fits and moody (probalby because I haven’t played with him as much). It’s always something with kiddos ;)
I’m so glad we’re bloggy friends too <3
Hi — regarding that photo on your side bar? The one about toddler tantrums? I have looked and looked at that picture and cannot figure out what is in that child’s mouth….what am I looking at there?? I’m serious! I recognize a tongue, but what else is in there?
I don’t THINK anything was in her mouth…unless it was teething tablets yet to dissolve there in the front behind her teeth. The back is just her throat, it just looks funny since you don’t normally get to see some one’s mouth so entirely. She’s quite the drama queen as I’m sure you can tell.
