Sometimes I still can’t believe I’m the mother of four kids, I live in this illusion that I’m still so young, but the proof is is the pudding, I suppose, and this pudding has 4 kids, one of whom is a teenager. When we had the three, Maria would be in school, so I would just have the boys most of the day, it felt still so ‘typical,’ look, were still supa’ normal! But now when I look in the back of the car, at 4 smiling faces I’m like, dang, yep, all mine. No denying it. 4 kids. But it’s the best.
They all play, and care about each other, I swear it was more mentally draining just having one, and worrying about him all the time. I still feel like just me, the regular me, but now with more people who I get to spend my life with. I feel genuinely like my kids are lucky to have each other, they are blessed. I guess I go back and forth between feeling like I hit the jackpot and tripping out–it honestly isn’t any harder than three, and in every way better, richer, and what’s meant to be #AdoptionIsFun #fourkidsissurreal #tooooootallynormal
I can’t wait to have that feeling!
Um…I can’t wait for you!
I have 8, 6 adopted, and feel the same way. I will turn 32 in November. 🙂
We’re totally still young, right? 😉
Here’s an essential oil challenge for you, mama of FOUR: plantar’s warts. (YUCK!!) I’m not having any success with frankincense and ACV. Maybe I’m not applying them correctly? Someone else suggested Rosemary and Jade Lemon. Do I put them ALL on together? One at a time? Will they counteract each other?
Thank you. I. want. these. GONE from our lives. They are a nasty little virus.
Warts are the WORST! We were literally just battling them for two kids. Here, read this, it helps: http://www.essentialoilbusiness.com/2013/04/29/remove-wart-naturally-use-oregano-essential-oil/
Thank you! I have some oregano oil. I’ll give it a try. I’d rather smell like marinara than have these nasty little things. SO. GROSS.
Love this post 🙂 We’re looking at going from 2 to 4 in a very short period of time…and while it sounded great when we updated our home study…I have to admit to freaking out just a bit thinking about the numbers 🙂
