Hot Topic: How do you do it with FIVE children?

  1. Loved this!

    Our dependence on God is so real, isn't it?!?! I can always tell when my prayer life has slipped...it shows in my parenting. Thanks for sharing.

    PS. Thanks also for showing MB with a little fuzz. (Seriously, could she be any cuter??) I know you say you accept fuzz, but it makes me feel so much better to see a little of it. :)

  2. I think the fuzz shows up more when the puffs are contained in braids--like you see in this video. Thanks for pointing it out, because I had never thought of it. I'm thinking when the puffs are out, all our eyes see are the puffs and they are supposed to be fuzzy so we don't perceive the style as fuzzy.

  3. Hello, thank you so much for sharing! I know some of what you are talking about from my pregnancy: I know this irrationality, I as well went to this "dark place", I never felt that bad and unhappy ever before... and as soon as the baby was there, it was all forgotten and since then I am the happiest person, everything works just fine and is full of love and laughter! But this was my first pregnancy and I am feeling ancious about getting pregnant again and again becoming that depressed. There wasn`t much help for me then and I would hate to be that insecure and unhappy person again - for me and especially for my beloved child. Did you experience these feelings with each pregnancy? Or did this only relate to your nausea (and feeling weak)? Was each pregnancy alike or comletely different from the others? Thanks. L.

  4. I struggled with each pregnancy. Some were worse than others. If the nausea and vomiting were really bad I struggled more. It wasn't enough to hinder me from trying for a pregnancy at first because I really wanted to have at least 3 kids no matter how bad things got. After 3 I knew I wanted more, but I really struggled with the dread. I am so glad we went ahead and planned those additional 2 pregnancies. I am so blessed by the family I have.
