It's on the List

Do you see it? Go to the middle and then down a few. It's been there every day, but not getting crossed off.

I'm often asked how the transition from 2 to 3 has been. Of course it's difficult and more intense as I now have to care for an extra who depends on me for his very food, but the transition itself has been smoother than 1 to 2. 

I'm finding I need to be more scheduled. Especially for meal planning and grocery shopping. A quick run to the grocery store becomes a 2 hour ordeal.

I now make a to do list every day. It's keep me focused, and even if only three things have been crossed off, it leaves me with a small sense of accomplishment. SO.MANY.THINGS do not get done, but those things will wait. 

These littles will not.

They will continue to grow and flourish and take my breath away with who they are.

I refuse to miss this.


  1. your priorities are in the right place... you only get one shot with this. there are no second chances, no "do overs," and this is the one thing you don't want to mess up.

    more people need to realize that... it's a regret you don't want to live with!

  2. This although simple is a deep lesson to us all.
    Be well!

  7. oh my goodness, your kiddos are simply DELICIOUS!!! And I especially love the one with Mama in it....that is a framer and a keeper, for sure.

    You are doing all the right things, Bri! Keep it up!!! (and I agree: 2-3 was MUCH easier than 1-2)

    Hugs and love to you.
