This and That

Every day the sense of peace and blessing I have over having a complete family just fills me up.  My mom told me when she was here after New Baby was born that one day I might want more.  While that's true I might one day have a moment of insanity and want to start over again, at the moment, I feel almost giddy that we can finally start planning the rest of our lives.  We can plan family vacations.  I can plan a career outside the home if I choose after they're out of school.  We can sleep through the night again.  I guess what I look forward to the most is watching my babies grow and seeing who they become.  I look forward to each stage with them and pray I can become the mother I want to be.

I was recently blessed with a very "adult" conversation with someone that enlightened me with everything from discipline to how I want to raise my children in everyday life.  I'm excited about implementing the things we talked about, enjoying every day with my kids and spending more special times with them.  I can't wait to start having more fun with them.

And to add to the excitement, I'm joining weight watchers again.  Tomorrow.  I have to do something.  Yes, I'm only 4 weeks postpartum, but the belly is killing me.  It's not uterus, it's fat.  Lots of fat.  3 or 4 inches deep of fat.  AND.ITS.GOING.  I lost 7 pounds in 3 weeks before, so I'm hoping to be on maintenance by the end of the year.  Help me stay motivated!

Weight Watchers is the best. And now they have so many great tasting snacks. :)

You can do it!

You can do it! I'll be your cheerleader. Of course, I have had cake and ice cream everyday this week so I can't be a good example for you. Have a great weekend!
