Three Kids

Exhausting.

That is all I can say.  

I used to want four and was even open to five but today caused me to rethink that.  Today I ventured out with all three and let. me. tell. you.

wow.

I got in the van (LOVE IT!) and halfway to our destination realized that the stroller didn't get returned to the van (LOVE IT!) after unpacking it yesterday from our trip to visit family up North for Easter.  So...I had to lug Bro on my hip, Faith in her carrier while Emma trailed behind.  

Needless to say, my back is killing me.  Have I mentioned that Brody, who is 11 1/2 months, weighs 24 lbs.?  Yeah.

Other than the hectic day of trying to run errands with the three kids, everything has been working out well with little miss Faith.  

Please continue to pray for us.  There has been talk of Faith's two year old sister staying with us as well (!) and I just don't know if I can hang with all four kids.  If its the Lord's will I know I can do it, but man oh man...  

Hope you all had a great Easter!  Pics to come soon!

Haha, good luck!! You can do it!!

I'm the oldest of 5 kids, and I always am amazed at my mother, and how she had the determination and strength to raise us all. I do believe it takes a truly special person to raise multiple children, and do it well! God bless you!

Lord, give Alison strength as she cares for the little ones you've placed in her life. Give clear direction if You want to bring Faith's sister into the mix too. Amen.

Was just wondering about you last night and how things were going.
Faith is a lucky little girl to be with your family - and should her sister join you, it would be because that's what's supposed to be.

Sending prayers of ease for you.

You're amazing. If it's His will for you to have all four then I know you will do amazing at that too.
