Jokes#2 plus some real life notes

Q. Why did the chicken cross the road?

A. To find his friends. then they went to his Grandmas house and there was a birthday party with cake. Can I have a cookie?

I am quite certain that I can do this. When in a rational state of mind, my life is pretty dope. I have a great hubby, amazing kids, a beautifully imperfect house, a minivan and a wonderful support system. But, in my normal state of mind, far from rationality, I am 97% sure this is way too much. Once I concede to my less then rational self, it takes an army from heaven to get me out of it. Or a day in bed with my cell phone, crying and screaming to my husband. It is, after all, his fault.

These situations were becoming pretty scarce. But now that I am getting closer to having our third child, They are happening more frequently. I have a tendency to wait-till-then, ie. once the baby is born, then I will deal with it. Not working so well. Just another reminder to life for today, be the best I can today, even if that is a bumbling mess. Accept my emotions and move through them. And tell my husband and kids how grateful I am to have them.

Of course you can do this--the question is whether or not we will drive ourselves crazy trying to be P.E.R.F.E.C,T

Having #3 will be a transition, just like having the girls was. Full of all sorts of new adventures. You will be busy. You will feel guilty about whether you're spending enough time, whether this is done, whether that wasn't done, whether you're doing the right things yada yada...we've all been there. You're children are clothed, fed and loved. At the end of the day, I'd say that's pretty darn awesome. :) (Oh and it IS all Jeff's fault.)
Don't forget, your neighbor/cousin is just a short walk (drive) away. And my house is messy too. :) Love to you B!!
