Look at this guy!
I mean, isn't he just perfection?
Well, I think so anyway.
How is he big enough to, like, eat food and sleep through the night (sometimes) and be using his hands and look like he wants to crawl and stuff already?
Not to mention his brothers.
How in the heck am I now the mother, a MOTHER (scary adult title) of a 7 YEAR OLD, and also a 5 year old?
In the last 6 months we have:
Unpacked said house
Started to decorate said house
Had a baby via scary c-section
Got a rescue dog
Tried out another rescue dog (didn't work out, sadly)
Had a hot tub party
Dealt with major illness
Made new friends
Moved the boys school
Delivered 4000 Yellow Pages
Had 8 Interviews between us
Changed jobs twice between us (third to follow shortly)
Learned how to plaster a wall
Learned how to fix guttering
Passed a driving test (husband)
Collected baby slings for refugees
And now it's 3 weeks until Xmas.
What is even going on?
I am feeling really lucky. Not only have I got the house of my dreams, in the location of my dreams, I have a gorgeous family who are (mainly) in good health. We have a world of things to look forward to. And in the grand scheme of things, well, that is absolutely imperatively, everything.
But, hey - 6 months. Jeezo - that's a lot of stuff for such a short amount of time.
Dear life, please give me an easier next 6 months.
