Adjusting to baby 1 was tough and for a few hours a month I got to feel like me. Soapbox - if you know a new momma or one with littles even occupying he kids for a half hour so she can shower alone is a huge blessing and a great Christmas gift. Don't just offer because most moms will not call, but schedule it.

Ok back to quilt. Now kids are 2 and 4 and I feel the stress building, so time to tackle this quilt again. Little fabric pieces are so relaxing. I have 21 blocks, 16 tris and 2 kites done. I think I'll plan block prep to be on the break weeks, so between now and start date I can get the first batch. Yeah a plan!

    I've recently started watching my 5 month old granddaughter. Her momma, my youngest daughter told me last friday that she was pregnant again. This is her 3rd child. The oldest is 8. So I will be watching 2 in diapers. BTW, this next one is due 1 week before the 5 month old turns 1! I don't know how people do it with twins. I so agree that you should schedule things. I have a hard time getting supper done by 7 pm. And at my age by then I'm whipped. I'll be saying a prayer for you that your days (and nights) are peaceful and relaxing. I'm so there with you!
