Must touch mommy | Mommy and Me Monday | The 206th ed


It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids.  Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information. Need another reason to participate in Mommy and Me Monday? Read my post about why I blog with words from a friends’ husband.

This week was our first flying solo with all of the kiddos. I’m trying to find a routine and rhythm for getting the kids off to school on various days/times. I’m getting there. But, it means I’m often driving to carpool in pajamas and maybe throwing a lunch in a bag as we walk out the door.

It also means that two days a week for a couple hours, I get some alone time with this cutie.  

Mommy and Me Monday with E

Also, it means three days a week, I’ve got E and B. And while E has been awesome adjusting to not being the baby, she doesn’t like to be more than an arm’s reach away while I’m holding her sister.

I now understand why moms say they are “touched out.”

I’m definitely in the “just keep swimming” phase, but everyday is a new day and I’m loving it!

Mommy and Me Monday at  Really, Are You Serious?

**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies. If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link. It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.**

I try to make sure and visit all of you and leave some comment love.  Please spread the love!  And, I never mind the comments, either:)

  2. I am blessed to have seen two of your babes grow from being brand new. I love B already… and I MUST come over to meet her when you’re ready! 🙂

  3. Man, I can only imagine how touched out and busy you are with 4! I already feel that way with 2. Good thing they are so cute right???

  4. I love how bright eyed B is for her one on one time with mommy. Something tells me you will have a wonderful routine in place by this time next week (or sooner) for carpool and solo outings with all 4. E is so full of love. Such a sweetheart!

    cute photos – Joe’s friend’s daughter is pregnant with her 4th. 3 boys oldest is almost 6, this one is a girl. She told me she was glad to hear another person who has 4 kids. Just as you have said in the past people will make the dumbest comments when they see you are going to have 4 kids. hers are even closer in age than yours.
