We did it!

We got through the first 24 hours as a family of four. The new little Bean did wonderful. We went to Pride, took some swoops around the grounds. I know we would have stayed longer if it wasn't 56874 degrees. That is weird about Pride in Milwaukee.. it is either hot enough to fry your face off, or you are wearing mittens. I prefer the mittens.

We went to my cousin's birthday party after the fest and the Bean was welcomed with open arms. It made me tear up for a moment. I underestimate my family. I need to stop that.

Today we are going to the Pride Parade and then back to the house to make it look less like an episode of Hoarders. I don't even want to THINK about the basement.

Between yesterday and today, I am finding it more apparent that people without kids tend to make distance with those that have kids.. I am missing some of my friends...and I wish Anne and Amy lived closer.  I guess this is my new life. I am happy about it. I just wish I had a larger community around me. Maybe it will happen with the new people I am meeting?

Okay. Time for a bath for Bean. She still smells like the group home.



  1. It is amazing how fast your family changed by one and how well you have adjusted already. I wish I could see the new one too. Hopefully someday!

  2. Still smells like the group home. Hee hee. That made me laugh. You have to stop underestimating yourself, too! If this is what you want, you'll do just fine! And I wish I was closer too. Seems that the only way that will happen is if YOU move closer to ME. We're staying put until Fiona is out of HS. If you have any Mommy questions, feel free to call me. I'll try to push the cobwebs out of the way to answer you!
    now, email me with the REAL juicy stuff. I'm sure you're holding out on me!
