Baby Shower

WOW! My husband and I have been members of the New Parents class for less than three months. We have been welcomed and felt apart of the class from the beginning. We have been missing out on fellowship since we had the triplets because it is so hard to find the time and freedom to see people that are older than 18 months of age that we are not related to already. When we visited the class we were automatically asked to go to functions. Also the functions seemed to work around the schedule of small children, like bedtime.
Today we had a shower at my house for my fifth child. The ladies of the class came and we socialized and then they did something that just melted my heart. They prayed for me. I am excited about having this child and being apart of a class that actually are apart of each other's lives. Also my daughter will have plenty of playmates with all the ladies in the class that are having babies in the next month or two, I think that we are up to six. We have taken the scripture literally "be fruitful and multiply."

Becoming a SAHM

Well this is a first for me. I have never blogged or had a reason to. This will soon be my release from the stress and memories of my life and day to day activities with 5 children. Soon I will be a SAHM, actually in three days. I am excited about being a SAHM and I am actually surprised at how at peace I am with it. This is definitely a God thing. I have always grown up with the ambition to be the best and at the top of whatever I did. My calling for over 10 years has been retail, and becoming a store manager. I still work in retail but I never did make the store manager part just the number two spot. I thought that would make me a little bitter, but instead I am excited about being a SAHM with my children and getting to watch them grow, learn and kill each other on a daily basis. Also I am looking forward to being home when my husband comes home instead of having crazy hours like 4am and staying at work until midnight. Being able to plan things will be much easier since I will not have to work on weekends anymore. It is going to be a sacrifice but a sacrifice that I am excited about. Speaking of being a SAHM we are cutting teeth and having fun with Esther today.
