Never in a million years...

There are a lot of things I find myself saying and doing that make me stop and think never in a million years did I ever imagine... I never thought I'd research or even consider using bottle props. I never thought I'd have any complaints about pregnancy when actually getting pregnant seemed so out of reach. I never thought I'd call rooms in our house: nursery 1 and nursery 2. I never thought I would have a nanny, much less one that stays overnight. I never thought I'd eat with such reckless abandon. I never thought I'd be OK with only having one car for our family. And on, and on (and on) I could go.

The bottom line is this: when you're having four kids within 15 minutes of each other you do whatever you need to.

I truly believe God has a sense of humor. For fifteen months I bargained with Him, trying my best to be in control. If I can just have a baby I'll be the best mom ever, never ask for anything else, and never complain. I'm just certain He heard my cries, kindly smiled at my finite thinking, and fondly thought of all the teachable moments we would share in the years to come. I'm so glad He knows I'm a work in progress.
