A Year Later...

What a difference a year makes. Last year at this time, Scott and I were waiting in anticipation of if we were having a baby boy or another baby girl. As the story goes, we found out we were having TWO boys. It was definately the shock of a lifetime. As many of you are aware, I was not happy. I thought there was no way I could be able to care for twins and a 2 year old. I thought Claire was going to hate me for not only bringing one baby home, but for bringing home two. I also was told that day that I would have to stop working. I was blown away.

Now, a year later I cannot imagine my life without these boys. They are honestly the most precious and loving babies. Claire, Ryan and Isaac light up my life. They are my world. I am also very proud of myself. I am able to take care of three kids alone and pretty well if I do say so myself. We are able to go places or just play at home. Claire also has adjusted very well to her brothers. She loves them and loves helping Mommy take care of them.

I have wondered if I only had one of the boys which one it would have been. The thought is so sad because they are both an important part of our family.

As for work, that has been a challenge. I am okay with working my weekend nights, but I really miss working more intensely with my young adult patients. I feel like that part of my life is on hold...but to be honest, I would much rather make the sacrifice so I can spend more time with my family.
