Daily Diary: Finding Normalcy, Making A Bucket List … And Getting Rich?


Yesterday, I sat down with the kids and had them tell me all of the things they want to do now that I am on my feet again. It started out in your typical way – go to the park, see a movie, have family game night. These are things that were part of our regular routine prior to me getting pregnant.

Well, once we were rounding out our MUST-DOs, Liam adding one more in.

“Get Rich”


I told him this was a list of things to do as a family and he told me that he completely understood that. LOL! OK – so I added it just for fun.



Caleb is a good baby. He is a great baby. You have to hear him cry – he sounds like a bird. It is insanely cute. Here he is drunk on food with Daddy. 🙂  I can eat him right UP.



The rest of the evening we did arts and crafts as a family. We used up all of extra Valentine’s Day cards and drew on paper bags. The kids were happy. So was I.

Nice to get back to our “normal”.

  1. You did it! All long weeks of bed rest paid off for these new normal and precious family moments. Congratulations! I’m so happy for you 🙂

  2. Well, Liam has a point! You CAN get rich as a family and it’s probably a good idea because vacations ain’t cheap. ROFL
