And encouraged

So after my last blogpost, I just had to share that Mary has been napping, IN HER BASSINET, for hours. Hours, people! The longest nap she's ever taken. By far. What a gift!

I think I've used the time wisely. I:

relaxed and read blogs
vacuumed the entire downstairs
got two loads of laundry going
cleaned both bathrooms
enjoyed listening to my older four kids playing Barbies together

Tonight we're having leftovers for dinner, Kevin's on his way home, and this has sure shaped up to be a great afternoon.

Even if Kaitlyn just gleefully announced that she threw up. Now she's gleefully cleaning it up. Herself.

Life as a mom is an adventure. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. And throw up or no throw up, my baby has been napping all afternoon, so I remain encouraged!

And, you know you're a Mom when: you hear "I just threw up" and it doesn't faze you. :)
