Well hello there! Anyone still around? I'm dusting off some cobwebs just for a moment since I am forcing myself to stay awake until Shane gets home from a recent trip. To Alaska. Alaska is really far away. I kind of wish I could head to Alaska for a week. Or really anywhere that had a nice hotel with a plush bed and room service. I am beat.
So why the crazy lull in blogging? Well, I'll tell you. I have three children. It doesn't really seem like a lot when you just say it like that. 3 kids. That really is only one more than two. And two is less than the American average. But take it from me, 3 is a lot.
I love having three kids. I can't believe how scrumptious my baby is. She is so funny and bright and my other two find so much joy watching her grow. Today we all sat on a blanket and laughed as she continuously tried to escape us to go eat dirt.
For the most part, being a mom to these little darlings is about as good as I could imagine it to be. With the exception that Elise does not feel the need to nap for much longer than 45 minutes at a time, which is pretty much the bane of my existence. (And let's be honest. A whole lot of the time I think I am going to freaking lose my mind. But, I've realized that is just part of the mom status quo.)
AND - one more big reason for blogging lull?.... I made the (TOTALLY INSAIN) decision to hand-make almost all my Christmas gifts. I've been working since June. I kid you not. So all that fun blogging time that I used to have around 9:30 at night? I'm at home working with a glue gun, needle and thread or pounding nails with my tiny hammer. I'll make sure to show you some of my creations coming up.
I miss ya'll! Happy Autumn :)
they are pretty cute.
