A New Routine
Thursday, June 13, 2013
Hi there all my friends. Just a quick update as I miss you all and miss or chats and such. My 3 other babies are starting to get use to having the new baby around. However, they still haven't quite adjusted enough for me to get any relaxation or time to myself. They have all regressed a bit and so I am dealing with lots of whinny "me, me me" stuff from all 4 babies. I am trying to get them to understand about being big brothers and sisters and helping grandma more versus trying to be more of a baby to get even more attention than they already get. Scheduling one on one time has become a big chore as each one thinks it should always be there turn. A lot of little ones already have issues when you bring a new baby home and then you add special needs little ones and it is compounded, but I have faith we can get through this. Sometimes, like right now, I just have to stay awake a little longer to get a few mins to my self and hope and pray the next day they all nap together so I can catch a few extra winks. It doesn't always work, but I try. If I don't check in here every so often, I feel like I am losing myself, so I have to try and check in now and again. I did recently join one of my teams mini challenges to help remind me to take time for myself. Not always easy, but I am determined. Next week, my older grand baby has to have surgery to remove tonsils and adenoids. It should be fun trying to keep him comfy and the others occupied without disturbing the older one. A friend of mine is gonna come over now and again to help as much as she can, so that is a good thing. Well I better go for now, and I will check in again when I can. Please keep my family in your prayers and hope to see more of you guys soon. Kepp sparking my friends and good luck on all your journeys.
