Life with Four

Avalie is 4 weeks old! Time is flying by in a way, and in another it's slowed! I think the lack of sleep is definitely more pronounced the older I get. :) I wouldn't say this one sleeps less than the others, I just don't get to sleep in like I did with the younger ones. With a 5 1/2 , 4, and almost 2 year old running around, sleeping in isn't possible anymore!

We start homeschooling in September and I am more than a little nervous about it. I am not a scheduled person and it seems like school will be a daunting task. I've done quite a bit of research and it seems like Rod and Staff will be the curriculum we go with. I am about to order it and start planning out the daily lessons. I am planning on starting the 4 year old at the same time doing preschool work.

My exercise schedule has been cut down significantly with the arrival of the new one. In reality this is probably a good thing and has allowed my body to heal when I would have pushed it harder than I should have. I was going twice per day but now go just once and try to do a second session at home. I really liked going frequently. It will be a good time to slow down as we are starting school, throwing showers, birthday parties, trying to sell our house and having a wedding, not to mention holidays in the next four months. It's busy!

Remember that four children is not the same as three. Your life will change; there will be more to do. Don't feel obligated to continue with a routine or with showing up at all things you're invited to. I thought I was such a pro when my third child was born, and was out with her hanging in the Snugli right away. I ended up with a breastfeeding problem that required medicine (ouch!) Take care of yourself - No one will permantly suffer if you take it easy here and there. Blessings.
