4 weeks to go!!

I am trying to think of something to write because so many things have happened but my mind is a blank. I have 4 weeks to go until I deliver our new baby boy. Today I folded and put away all the baby clothes. They are all organized in their rightful containers and look so perfect. I have everything ready for when he arrives. I have the diapers, wipes, nursing pads, rubbing alcohol, nose thingy, etc. The only thing I will need when the baby gets here is food. It's funny because we just got a brand new freezer and it has about a week's worth of dinners for us but I am not motivated to fill it more. I was yesterday but today has just felt overwhelming.

Tonight I was just having an emotional moment where I was crying for no reason (hormones). My little 4 year old "A" came up to me and just started rubbing my back saying "I love you mommy. You are the bestest mommy in the entire world. I like the cards you make. We just HAVE to have cards, you know". Well, after that I couldn't even cry, I just had to smile. He is going to make the best husband some day. He might drive me batty during the day because he has soo much energy but it is times like these that I know he has his sweet side, too. I am so grateful for my family. It's just so hard being pregnant in the last phase. I just look around my house and see so many projects that I want to do but I know that I "can't" do them. It's so hard for me to get on all fours to pick up stuff so I just have to let it sit there which drives me crazy. I know in the end it is not going to matter. I also hear women with grown children say how they miss the mess. I guess I can't really see that yet because the kids leave messes EVERYWHERE!!

For Young Womens tonight the Miamaids & Beehives did a Yoga tape. I made smoothies for everyone which was a HUGE success. I made enough so we could also share with the Young Men and other leaders. I am so glad that all my batches turned out good. Sometimes they don't work out as well.


  1. Oh Robyn
    You made the YW those neat journals and tonight you made the YW and YM smoothies?? That's in addition to the coolest monkey cards - you just keep getting more and more awesome!! I can come over and pick stuff up for you anytime, just call okay? :-)

  2. You're story about your sweet "A" made me laugh and cry at the same time! It sounds like something my 5 year old would say. It's no wonder Jesus said we need to "become as a little children." There is so much kindness in those simple words he said to you.

  3. I cannot believe some people who have grown kids actually miss the messes. I know every time we leave my mom's house she immediately cleans everything. My mother has never liked messes.


Thanks for leaving me a comment! I love to hear from you!!
