Yes, we’re still here.
I know that I’ve been absent from the blog lately, our life is very full and my priorities and responsibilities simply don’t fit with spending even a few minutes a day writing for the blog, but today the 4 Moms topic is managing with only littles and I really wanted to weigh in on this. However, our current situation just doesn’t allow it.
Our oldest 3-4 kids have been working full time (8:30-5:00) for the past week and will continue through next week. That leaves me with 8 kids age 11 and under, which isn’t really all littles, but it feels like it because our commitments are based on having a family with multiple older children (meals to several different families this week, hospitality, etc.)
We have another foster child, H. who just turned two and is requiring intense attention and supervision, neither Valor (11 months) nor H. are sleeping through the night (I think that one may be waking the other, and no, they are not in the same room.) which means this I’m not sleeping much and as a result I’m struggling with a breast infection.
So I’m going to leave you with some of my previous posts about managing with only littles and if you think about it, we’d love some of your prayers.
- Our schedule – including the time when our children were 3 and under
- Home with all Littles
- Does it get easier?
- Coping While Exhausted – Because it’s a fact of life when there are only littles in the house.
- Naps and rest time
- Going out with lots of littles
- Keeping little ones in worship
One thing I will say is treasure your time with those littles, don’t wish it away, don’t spend so much time looking to the future (and having big helpers) that you lose the todays.
May God bless you and your families (and thanks for sticking with me and my sporadic posting)!
