Saturday night was the best night of sleep we've gotten yet and when I woke yesterday morning I felt like I could conquer the world! I did not conquer the world, however, I did get to church with all my kiddos fed and dressed and I was mighty proud of myself. It was good for the girls to be back at church playing with friends and learning and Daddy and I hear a great sermon as well. On top of the fed and dressed part, we were on time y'all! Wow! I felt seriously accomplished...like I need a gold star and a cookie kind of accomplished. Now, I started prepping for said endeavor at like 7 pm the night prior and that endeavor included both Tim and I showering so that was out of the way prior to Sunday AM but hey, you do what you gotta do, right? So...we actually had time to spare to take a few pics of the kiddos all dressed and ready before we left yesterday:
My handsome little one month old! He did pretty good for his first trip to church. He got a little fussy but once fed, he was good to go and we made it through with no crying: hip, hip, hooray!
Pretty much what I'm learning with three is that prior preparation is going to be essential to all things running semi-smoothly. I lay clothes out the night before (for all the kids + me), I get my morning pumping equipment ready the night before, I think through our following day and put necessary items in the car if need be and Tim and I both shower at night. I always kind of made fun of Tim for showering at night because I like to be "fresh" and showered each day, but right now that would mean waking up prior to 6 AM and that just ain't happenin' people. So...for now that's how we're surviving. I'll figure out exercise time and Mommy time later. Baby steps!
