Laying out the dots (and connecting them at the end)

I’ve been dropping some clues lately…see how many it takes you to solve the mystery.

A couple of days ago my sister sent me a text with a random Gatorade fact.  Three hours later, I was drinking Gatorade.  A similar thing happened when I saw a banana split on a Baby Einstein video and could not rest until I had one for myself.

I’ve been taking naps in the afternoon.  I cry when Jem skips his nap and makes me skip mine.

Then there was this picture on Instagram…

I decided that it would be more restful to take the kids on a road trip to Tennessee with my mom and sisters than to stay home by myself with my children.

I cried at Abby’s preschool graduation and I DON’T EVEN BELIEVE IN PRESCHOOL GRADUATIONS.

Our big kids are now sharing a room.

Did I mention that I’m EXHAUSTED?

I’ve been ordering chicken noodle soup and Sprite at Chick Fil A.

I haven’t been blogging.

Motorists driving through east Milwaukee on Friday afternoon might have seen me on my hands and knees in the grass outside of a veterinary clinic, puking up my lunch.

And then there’s this picture, where Stephen helped Abby spell out the names of all the kids in our family:


Y’all.  Christmas at the Watson house is going to be crazy this year.  😀

P.S.  Since we like to be surprised by the sex of our babies, we always carefully choose a name for each child before he or she is born.  After Baby Tres, I hadn’t planned on continuing the numbering trend, but we found out about this baby shortly after I saw Divergent, and the opportunity was too fun to pass up.

So, World, join us as we prayerfully, joyfully welcome Baby Four to our family!
