So tired

Are we.

Happy, but tired.  :)

We go through our days, schooling and snacking, playing at the park, visiting friends. 

Life moves on. 

It has to. 

So different when you are adding number 5 to an already busy mix.

Thankfully we are in a slower time. 

Spring break. 

Well, not really for my kids (Didn’t they just have a month off?!).

“Wo yao Mama.”

That is what I hear throughout my days.

“I want Mama.”

He has a nervous tummy. 

I’ve been doing a fair bit of laundry.

Oh, and sleep? 

Not his favourite thing to do.

We share his car bed sometimes.

Or the floor.

Or my bed, if Steve is home to block off the other side.

He (Samuel, people) likes to roll around a lot in his sleep. 

Or should I say flip around. 

He’s even fast when unconscious. 

His voice. 

“Oh Tay!”

Sends goosebumps up and down my spine.

I love his voice.

And I love my baby. 

And now I’m off to see if I can find some sleep, before my baby awakes yet again.

Good night!




  1. It is so good to hear your posts. It sounds like so much is going on up there. What a journey for your family.

  2. I appreciate the update, I can’t even fathom how busy life must be for you!
    Continued prayers! xo’s to each of you!

  3. Glad you are beginning to find your groove.
    The laundry, oh the laundry…makes me dread our upcoming trip just a little…
    He’s so precious!

  4. So glad to see you are at least surviving your return home and a new family member! When he says, “I want Mama”, does he mean you or his foster mom he left? Bless his little heart, what a transition. Of course a transition for you all too. I’m glad you love his voice and you love him. Makes me happy. Hang in there and hopefully rest will happen in between, Shelley.

  5. Love reading your updates! However, I’m nervious to go from 4-5 kiddos. Any Advice?! LOL
