The First Day Of The Rest Of My Life

Today is my first solo day as a mom of three. The houseguests are all gone and the girls are home from preschool.

I’m only on my second batch of coffee, and so far, we’re doing okay. No injuries. No Joan Crawford moments.

Tummy Time is a hit.

Charlotte is in her own little world as usual. She’s “teaching letters to her Pollys” right now.

Only 7 hours until Daddy gets home.

    Hope you’re still having a great day. I don’t think I realized until I read your post that I’m actually going to be expected to be home ALONE with the girls and this new baby. That’s kind of frightening!

    The reality of baby #3 is sinking in more each day and it is freaking me out. Thank goodness I can watch you make it look easy so I don’t get too scared! : )

    You’re a great mom! Remember these days, they will be gone before you know it and you will one day look back and wish you could re-live just one day… maybe not a whole day…maybe just morning..or maybe just breakfast..or you might just say “Whew!, I’m glad that’s over! Give them a hug and a kiss for me! I love you.

    Everyday gets better and you will soon fall into a routine. I am not going to lie and say they get easier, but you just get used to it :)!

    The bonus is that it looks like Olivia will be quite the little helper for you. I bet she loves taking care of her little brother! Thanks for the encouragement that one day we too could have a little boy. :o)
