I have all kinds of things I could call my craziest adventure, or perhaps stupid tricks, but possibly the biggest adventure to come is becoming a mom again at 41. I already have children 22 to 13, in the Army, college, high school, and the marching band and here I’m about to start all over again. I’m almost 5 months and I still do not think it has sunk in that all of the sleepless nights, countless diaper changes, and bottle feedings are just around the corner. I’m so overwhelmed with all the new baby gear I have no idea what to pick out and end up frustrated, throw my hands up, and walk away.
Now do not get me wrong I am not complaining (I swear) the good will far out way the bad. Since this is Austin’s first seeing him with a baby will be beyond precious, all the firsts will be new excitements, seeing how the older kids interact with their new sibling, and how or if #TheBoys with pay any attention to him at all. Part of wanting to be back in this house was because of all the memories it already holds. I never imagined just what all the new memories would entail.
So let the adventure begin because it will indeed be an adventure.
