ahhh, motherhood.

So I decided something on the way to the doctor's office this afternoon.

I have officially reached a new stage of parenthood when a trip to the doctor's office with just one baby feels as exciting and as good a time away as if someone offered me a day trip to chicago.


That may be a slight exaggeration.

But only slight.

(picture borrowed from Jami - although our counter looks pretty similar)


3 children with RSV (thankfully over)


(now) 3 girls with double ear infections (a goodbye present from RSV)


Daddy's Busy Season


Winter (enough said)?

And a trip to the doctor's office where I get to snuggle just one baby suddenly feels like quite the fun outing.

It's the little things - right?!

I'm so sorry amb. If it helps - a chiropractor always helped clear my kids ear infections. Wish I lived closer - to let you snuggle the girls and I'd even cook for you - that is sisterly love!! xoxo
