All Alone

So this week was the annual Beal Redfish Campout. Being in my current state you can probably guess my many reasons for not going. As I've said in my previous posts....I get to miss most of the fun this summer. This trip would have been anything BUT fun. So, here I am. "All Alone". That is, with my two youngest.

I really felt Alex deserved to have a fun relaxing campout without having to worry too much about kids. So he took our oldest daughter. She was SO excited! I was pretty lucky to snap this picture before they took off. I'm hoping they are having a blast! I haven't heard much of anything since they left, so I'm assuming all is well.

Two days down...two more to go.

Alex has been so helpful to me this summer. Really he has been a super dad, a super house keeper, and just an absolute life saver, he really deserves a good time.
Its been so weird taking the load of a one year old and three year old. Especially at this stage in my pregnancy. They are both kinda high maintenance so I've been doing all I can to keep sane.
I'm so grateful to good friends who don't mind me crashing their homes and entertaining us. It sure has cut out a lot of the fussing I would be hearing otherwise.
I went to the store yesterday and bought myself tons of "junk food" just to stop me from hitting up fast food every day. Its worked so far. Only last night was HORRIBLE! My acid reflux was out with a vengeance!
I've been watching the calendar! In 3 1/2 weeks I will be two weeks early. 5 1/2 weeks to the due date...which I've never made it to. Still crossing my fingers on that one :)
So here's the question of the day:
If you were home alone for four days and super pregnant with high maintenance babies...what would you do??


  1. Try this one... Toby is going to Montana for 4 days at the end of July. That's right, leaving me with a 3 week old baby, a crazy potty training 2 year old and Bailey. I'm going to have to bug all the family I have around here to keep us entertained.

  2. I would go to my moms- if I lived close enough. :)

  3. No idea! Eric is gone for weeks at a time and I still have yet to figure that one out :) GOOD LUCK!
    I hope you go early and can't wait to meet baby girl!
