Is this when the Mental Breakdown Begins?

We just signed Emmory up for preschool.


At the risk of sounding totally cliche, I just don't know that I am ready. I know I need to be though. She needs it. I need it. We need it for each other. Here is where I struggle. Will she make friends? Will she be happy there? Will she feel comfortable? I hope so. I want nothing but happiness for my children. I know she will have times of struggle, but as of now, I have always been right there to comfort her tears. When she is away, she will have to learn how to do it on her own. A piece of my heart hurts knowing that. So I wonder; is this the time when parenting gets really hard?

Random Ramblings of a Tired Woman

Hello! I can't believe it has been so long since I have last updated this blog. To catch up, I am now currently 21 weeks pregnant. I have made it through the sickies, and am trying to now make it through the heat. We are doing a lot of swimming and drinking a lot of slurpees. Hopefully the heat will be gone before I get too big to stay comfortable, and start swelling.

I haven't been reading too much in the last couple of months. It is strange, whenever I am pregnant, it is like I just can't force myself to sit down and read. I get too restless or something. I am trying to finish Jane Eyre for the first time ever (don't judge), and just received The History of Love in the mail and am trying to wait to start that before Jane is finished. I don't know if I can wait that long though!

We have had a great summer so far. We spent 10 days in Mexico which was fantastic, and my sisters Monica and Melissa came to Denver for a week to visit with their kids. We had so much fun. As much as I love summer and vacations, I am really looking forward to the fall. There is something so cozy about the fall here in Colorado, I just love it. Plus the heat..... blech!

There are too many thoughts in my head right now, and at risk of boring you all to death with them, I will probably end. Maybe some book reviews in the near future, maybe not. I would also like to put some great recipes up that I have tried. We will see. Time and Energy seem to not be on my side too much these days.

Oh yeah, and baby boy? Turns out HE is a SHE!!  So that means three daughters for us? What are we going to do in about 10 years. Houston is in trouble!
