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.

    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.

    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 🙂
