– this girl started kindergarten. i don’t like it one bit. neither does her brother. every day around noon he starts asking “get sissy? get sissy?” i’m completely confident that we’re making the right choice by putting her in public school (more on that later) but i just miss her!! and i’m so sad my time at home with her is over. it went by so fast.

– yes, she chose the outfit all on her own. right down to the socks.

– this guy thinks he’s tough. he’s showing you his muscles.

– brock starts mother’s day out next week. two days a week. while i’m a little sad about both of my kids being gone all day i’m REALLY excited about having a few hours a week to get things done before the baby comes.

– being pregnant during the hottest summer on record sucks.

– 10-ish weeks until sweet baby girl gets here. i’m nervous about so many things (more on that later too) but i’m mostly SO excited to have a baby around the house again.

    So understand pregnant and this summer (and I am only 8 weeks)!!! Still staying IN the a/c of the house! Looks like a lot of exciting changes. Pray that everything goes smoothly for the next few weeks at least!

    Ahh yes the empty nest syndrome round one. It is normal and will happen as they each go off to college or there own apartment or (God forbid) decide to move in with a significant other)
    Hope you don’t decide to have another baby for each significant separation!
    You have a gift with words, try writing a book or take a class or get a part time job working around your children’s school hours.
    They need to have their freedom to grow and improve their social skills nd be able to live in the world.
    We will pray for guidance for you.
    God Bless,

    Wow. I’m not really one for offering up unsolicited advice, but I don’t know that I would ever question the reason (even jokingly) that someone decided to have a child. That’s just tacky and as my 5 year old says, “That’s not using your good manners.”

    Um, anyway, V, I can’t see Mr. Muscle Man’s picture.

    Vanessa, OK where have you been hiding this big girl! This cannot be Jaycie, it must be an older kid I never met.

    When Brock goes to MDO, put your feet up and pamper yourself, yes, let some housework go!

    I still remember with distress being 9 months pregnant twice in the hot summer. That was 39 and 30 years ago.

    Love you guys! Does the new Hart have a name yet, or is that a secret?

    Ahhh…….the smell of feminism in the morning!

    But, uh….you could name her after me. Just throwing it out there.
