Day 268: Inter-Galactic

Today was kind of overwhelming.  The kids are out of school for Fall Break (really?  Because it doesn't seem like they've been in school long enough to warrant a break, but not my decision).  Now, don't get me wrong--Sweet P is still my Sweet P, it's just that we're all kind of used to her being at school most of the day.

It was like everyone was competing for my attention all day.  At full volume.  And my sensory processors are exhausted.

Plus, we had a normal day on top of that which included:  gym, visit with the lactation specialist, quick trip to the baby store to pick up a fun supplement to enhance my milk supply, babysitting for a friend, and trying to carve pumpkins.


But during dinner, a friend stopped by with her family to go "ghosting".  I'd never heard that verb before, but apparently, it involves dressing everyone up in sheets and running circles around the tree in our front yard.  Hilarious.  And the littlest one was beyond adorable in his little pillow case.

Joyful Moment.

And they brought us a bag of Milky Ways.  When it comes to regular old candy bars, Milky Way is hands down my favorite.  Of course, I haven't had one in ages since they involve dairy.  But Baby B has given the okay for me to add some dairy back in to my diet.  (Hooray!)  So, I popped one of those babies in my mouth and for a moment, that Milky Way and I melted together.  Chocolate and caramel.  Yum.

Joyful Moment.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments that are out of this world!

Please call about the lactation specialist info- I'm still struggling here and I could use all the help you have to give! I'm thinking of getting those herbal supplements, but our store is out! Lame.

Anyway, my joyful moment was having Dad over for dinner and FHE. <3

I'd never heard of "ghosting" before either, but I can just imagine the fun that was. And my vote for best candy goes to Milky Way too! So glad you got to enjoy one again.

It sounds like so much fun - Did anyone record it? If not, you can always go "ghosting" again. It sounds especially fun with children; wish we were there!

My joyful moment was listening to 8 year old Tyler present a great FHE lesson - a story followed by comprehension questions and concluding with his testimony. It was so sincere and so inspiring. And then he graded us on our answers to his quesitons, with all kids (including 1 week old Russell) receiving A+'s and all adults receiving B+'s. Have I mentioned how joyful I am to be here?! Just missing my HH...
