Satan got the best of me today.

This 3rd pregnancy has been really rough for me. I can do a pretty good job hiding how I feel. My husband, on the other hand hears it all. The complaining, the whining, the grumbling, the breathing, the crying, the groaning, the peeing, the sleeping, etc.   I am SO THANKFUL I got to go on maternity leave at 34 weeks from teaching. Let’s just say I HAVE NO IDEA HOW I WOULD BE ABLE TO TEACH THE LAST 4…

I would, however get home around 5 pm everyday and straighten up, put the dishes away, maybe cook, and start a load of laundry. We have a maid come once a month…

35 week BUMPdate

I have not been consistent with these bumpdates. It’s okay and I am not going to beat myself up over it. I had every intention of photographing my growing bump EVERY WEEK with a cute weekly banner…. That definitely did not happen.   Teaching 1st grade for the majority of this pregnancy took a toll on me. I was exhausted every day, it was difficult to read even a short story, it hurt to walk, and I was left with…

Above those things though I want them to know the Lord and have a relationship with Him. I…
