So Katie, how’s everything going?
Ha ha ha!
Really though, I am not drinking all that. I mean, just one a day over here 😉
Things have been crazy, but I have been SO lucky to have my husband home to help since baby was born .
Sadness happens today, as he goes back to work and it’s back to the grind.
It will be good though for all of us to get back on a routine, as much as we can. Of course, life with a newborn is not very routine with the baby’s schedule. But, Rocco goes back to school today which is going to be hard for him being off the past two weeks, and it will be hard for me to get back to a somewhat routine.
I am nervous for drop off, and just the kids in the car together, and how crazy it will be trying to figure out getting Rocco places if baby sleeping or having to eat. I know moms do this all the time, so I will be fine and it just might be a little stressful the first couple weeks. His school on Tuesday and Thursday’s is not close, so it is a little trickier! But, we will make it work! I am just stressed a little, as Rocco is still adjusting to baby. He is doing so much better though! So YAY! It is only when she cries really that he gets upset. Yesterday though when she cried and Rocco and I were only together, I got him to calm down pretty fast!
I am just sad, I am going to miss my love, was so nice to have him home for so long! I am just going to keep busy though when Rocco is at school and therapy, as that will be good for me to get back into the swing of things with the blog and beachbody. I do have projects I want to tackle like getting her nursery done and my office painted!
It has been crazy, gosh this whole year has been. I am excited for 2017, hoping it brings great news for Elisabetta, too! She has her check up next Friday, to see how her lung is, and to determine surgery. I feel like I can’t really relax and be stress free, until that is all resolved. I just want her healthy and to put this all behind us. I am scared, but god is good, as he has been this whole journey.
I give SO much credit to moms with multiple little ones, it’s not easy.
I survive on coffee and wine, yup.
I am grateful to be a SAHM, as I have to be for Rocco and Elisabetta. Rocco has so much therapy and I am able to take him, and Elisabetta can’t be in daycare, so I am grateful I can be home with her. God does all for a reason, that’s why I am their mama! Grateful my husband and I are such a great team!
So, I am embracing the craziness of the first couple weeks ahead here! I know it will be hectic, but we will get into a routine and be all good! There will be rough days, but you have to just embrace them and breathe. That is where the coffee and wine helps 😉
Lots of coffee, always!
No matter how crazy and stressful life can get, I never forget to see the BIG picture. We are a very blessed family, have a roof over our heads, I have a car to get my back and forth, have a great husband that works hard, kids that I love to the moon and beyond, and more.
I plan on paying kindness forward more this year, too! I just love the feeling of doing nice things for people, and I want to put more love out in the world.
Happy Tuesday, friends! Wish us luck! Weeeeeeeee!
Moms of a newborn and toddler, did you feel it was crazy and stressful the first couple months?
