thebusybudgetingmama We let the craziness continue a little longer tonight and did books all together in the girls' beds after bath. One big party. Someone might have peed laughing at Micah being silly for us. (Wasn't the pregnant lady. Shockingly.) 14h

thebusybudgetingmama Micah is my jolly boy. When he's busy clogging toilets with tp or chucking pretzels across the room, he is doing it with a huge smile like mom is gonna LOVE this!! Not. Even his run is jolly.. He does this gallop version of a run haha. I hope he always keeps that jolliness just stops clogging toilets with tp and throwing food like confetti. 2d

thebusybudgetingmama Sleepy eyes all day. Was up late thinking of everything I need and want to do this month. Finally grabbed my notebook and wrote it all out. Then crashed. Sometimes writing it down helps take the stress away. Until you look at it in the am haha jk. Today wasn't the day I planned for. Didn't mark enough off my list. No one napped. So come bed time (in 30 minutes) it'll be strawberry Popsicle and go time for me! #goingwithit #maybeillfinallygetashower 3d

thebusybudgetingmama I adore this sweet girl. The other night I was snuggling with her at bed time and she kept wiggling and elbowing and head butting me right in the chest, I'm sooo sore there from pregnancy, (you ladies know!!) and I said babe give mom a little space.. And she tucked her head softly on my shoulder, arm wrapped across me, and said but mom I love you. So sweet and sincere. I completely melted and hugged her close. Stinker. Did all the heart emojis and stayed a little longer for snuggles that night. 4d
  •   mommyduncan84 @thebusybudgetingmama , I totally get that ! Only my girl, she is 4 currently and feeling a bit left out as I have been so very busy with her now 6 week old baby sister. She is giving all the hugs and squeezes along with poking and prodding me in my sore milk filled breast O my it kills, but I try to just remind her to be gentle and squeeze her the best I can Stinker for sure ! 4d
  •   nailvideosss123 Omg that is the. U test thing I've ever heard!! I always used to do that with my parents! 4d

thebusybudgetingmama My cute laundry helpers. Or not. 😛 Laundry basket fun. Sometimes they play so well together, and then it turns into a battle. I try to remind myself that parenting is a lot like exercising... Lots of repeating the same things... But with great results! Soo lots of correcting and explaining and one day they won't fight over who has the most pink playdoh. Hopefully one day soon. 5d

thebusybudgetingmama Felt baby flutters this week and I freaked out! (17 weeks on Tuesday!) This is baby number four but it still feels like the first! Such a crazy feeling that makes the nausea and lack of fitting wardrobe worth it. Still can't get over how far out my bump is. I think the baby is a lounger. #thebbmbaby4 6d

thebusybudgetingmama My phone is full of blurry photos of Micah and awkward bump selfie attempts haha. But love this shot Sophia photo bombed with my bump! I'm so ready to not be nauseas. Gotta be close right?!? I'm attempting to go grocery shopping today. Not a fun task when smells make you physically sick. I am ready to hit the nesting phase.. Can we skip to that stage please?? Lol. 1w

thebusybudgetingmama One in four women will experience domestic violence in their lifetime. I blogged about my experience at the Women for Courage Luncheon. The Jamie Kimble Foundation passed out warning sign cards. Please pin and share. You never know who you'll be able to reach and help. 1w
  •   grumpitygrump @bebetyanci --Please contact the Flordia Coalition Against Domestic Violence. They can get you immediate help--even help leaving tonight if you're ready! There are organizations that will get you everything you need and help you find safety. There are free legal advocates and attorneys who can help. You can also contact CASA or a local child advocacy center. 1w

  •   tigger8402 @carolmelovely weren't we just talking about this! 1w
  •   bebetyanci I have spoken to fcadv and they referred me to legal aid and nothing he's paying the apartment and not allowed here but yep no help from the lodge,cvac, women in distress nothing I had to find a psychologist and have to wait three weeks for the kids to be seen but he's getting clean and he falsely accused m of abuse and being a hoarder so yeah I always say truth will come out but with his family and their connections it's terrifying and I'm doing this alone no one at my corner alone. 1w
