I was talking to my Mom yesterday, and she was telling me that one of our relatives was concerned about me having a 5th child. Then, the strangest thing dawned on me. For probably every other pregnancy I would always be excited, but also scared. I could think of so many things that were going to be challenging by adding another child. And of course, there is always the newborn no sleep phase.
Anyway, this time it's different. I am actually really excited that I am having a summer baby. For one thing, we will be on a homeschool break. That will make things a little easier. For another thing, this ain't my first rodeo. I already know the realities of having a newborn and juggling other kids. It's also nice that JM and S are old enough to do more things for themselves. I dunno. Maybe it's just blissful ignorance. I am excited, confident, and ready for whatever lies ahead. I truly feel like this is my calling at this point in life. Can't wait to meet that beautiful, sweet baby.
