Long time no post!







I know its been awhile for a new post. I guess I have been a little busy. I recently changed my schedule and after 3 years of working nights 3pm-11pm. I am now working the day shift 7am-3pm. Its been a hard adjustment for me (mornings aren't my best time)! The kids on the other hand are loving life. My dear friend Stacy is watching the kids for me while I'm at work and they both love her. She has a huge house with tons of toys and freedom to run and play. Stacy has 3 kids, Bryson (8) Carsen (4) and Ella (3) the younger 2 are at home during the day and are a perfect match for Hannah. They love Marshall even though he's still a little young for them. Everyday that I've picked up the kids Hannah doesn't want to come home, thats how much fun its been for her. I have to say being a working Mom is probably the hardest challenge I've had so far in my life. I would give anything to be a full time stay at home Mom. Its just not feasible for us right now. I know its hard for Josh too. For several years we've worked alternating schedules to care for the kids but we have come to realize how much we missed each other. It really has been nice to sit down and have dinner together and have family time besides on the weekends. I know in time it will get easier...and this too shall pass. I'll just have to be patient. Its worth it though...my family means everything to me.

So is this every day? I am sure that is very hard. Are you still working for the same place? Hang in there. The kids look great. I can't believe Marshall is almost 1.

That's great that you get to be home with your hubby more often. Even though mornings suck (I'm with you there) I bet that makes up for it. Changes are always hard but fun...usually :)

By the way...where did you find your bog layout background? I've been wanting a new one and can't ever find them when I look.
