Birthday wishes...

Tired, grouchy, feeling worn down... am I sick? Oh no, wait! It's just my birthday!

I am at the stage in life where going out for a birthday dinner really isn't any easier than making dinner at home! BUT thanks to my mom volunteering to babysit, John and I did have an hour of quiet dining and conversation! It was overdue and very much appreciated! Thanks MOM! [and for the cake too!]

I am working on a post full of honest feelings about adoption, the girls, their special needs, and large families. So if you have any questions I am open to answering about anything! Let me know!


  1. Yea! Questions!! 1) do you handle dr/dentist/grocery shopping/etc with a large family, esp. one with sn's that make things more complicated. 2) what things do you do different in managing things at home with more children then when you only had a couple?? 3) We've never brought home 2 at once- we can't help be worried how we're going to handle everything; how has 2 at once been, really? Love keeping up with how the girls are adjusting. God bless, Jennifer

  2. Aaahhh, sorry I missed you special day, friend. So glad you got to go out with your man :)

    Sending you all my love and hugs.

  3. Happy Belated Birthday!
    I too have been too busy to blog surf-maybe I will catch up in September!
    My big family question is how do you stay calm, loving, peaceful when chaos is happening around you. I can do this well at home but when taking everyone away on a camping trip or holiday I have a hard time with the chaos. I really want the kids to experience different places/people but I also want to be a peaceful loving mom!
