Last week, I had gotten the that point of maximum stress. House was a mess, the kids were running wild, the girls had all been sick and up all night. We had skating seven out of eight days including the skating shows. I can't seem to find time to do the most basic chores much less bigger chores like organizing that closet where I keep tossing stuff that I don't want the girls to play with. I was fed up and declared, "Something has to change!"
And in thirty seconds, it did.
Thirty seconds was all it took for that little plus sign to develop and tell us that we are having a BABY!
I won't say "another" baby because that just seems to trivialize the event. It is still a big deal for us. I still look around amazed that my little girls are here. I'm still enjoying Julia's snuggly, baby sweetness. The memories of new babies are so fresh in my mind that the thought of getting to do it all over again? Pure joy!
Now, I'm floating in that peaceful, blissful joy. I'm going to ride this wave as far is it will go because there's a good chance next week that I'll be lying on the couch too sick to move. ;)
