My VIEW.

The rumors are true. Strict bed rest for this lady. . . and only 89 days to go. Hopefully I will not be on bed rest for the remaining 89 days, but for now we are taking everything one day and one doctors appointment at a time. One week down and so far so good. Thanks to the help of family and friends. The kids have still been having fun summer adventures with Dad, Grandma, Auntie and playing with their neighborhood friends. . . .but today the view from my thrown included LEGOS!!! The kids set up their working stations around 8:30am and played until 1ish. They were so proud of their little lego accomplishments. They asked me to take pictures and post them for their FAR AWAY friends. So this is for you FA friends. . ..



When they were finished they organized little piles in my room so they can pick up tomorrow where they left off. Not one of them took a shower or brushed their hair, but they were happy happy kids hanging out with their mom and. . . . I love that.

Mom on her throne with all her little royalty hanging out! Princess Gus is probably chuckling as she checks out her new family! Jacq's even adorable with her hair un-combed. Come a few days when I arrive, she will have elephant ear pigtails..(That's about all I remember how to do) Just ask Alyssa. Thanks for sharing all your great pictures. Love love love them!

Just continue sitting on your "throne" Shauna. The kids look... well... like kids that the dad is taking care of. Don't worry about it. They'll clean up later. They're all having fun and Lola is percolating nicely, so no worries.

So sorry you have to be down!! You have a pretty great view from your throne :-) It inspired me to slow down a bit today and enjoy my own cute kiddo's a bit more. Hang in there and send them my way any day ALL OF THEM!~

SHAUNA!!! WHAT HAPPENED?! Having gone through that, all I can say is I"M SO SORRY! After it is all said and done you and I should co-author a book with tips for bed-bound mothers! Good luck and let me know if you need any ideas to get you through (it's about all the help I can offer from far away!)
