Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires...courage.

My latest find....

Yesterday, while the older kids were at their sports class in the morning, Emma and I had some time to ourselves. We came home and played a bit and had a snack...she watched some of Sesame Street while eating. Then we decided to head out to Goodwill. I had a bag of clothing to donate and I wanted to look around as well. While in the store I found a bicycle seat...you know the kind that bolts onto the rear of your bicycle, for babies? We have one already but I knew we were going to need to get something for the new baby....because Emma will not be able to keep up with us on a bicycle of her own for quite a while yet. So, for $3.99 I got a second one and now Karl and I will each have a baby seat and child attached to our bikes. We have not gone biking at all since moving, well I haven't. Karl and the kids have gone a few times. Once the pregnancy is over and baby is big enough to sit in the seat, I'll be able to join in. There are a couple of larger parks in the area that might be good for bike rides, not to mention just going in the various neighborhoods. I'm looking forward to spring and getting out to do that....that's probably about when the baby will be ready to sit a little. I also got a few books for the kids and a Christmas night gown for Hailey while there. As always, I added to my stock of little girls' clothes because we'll be needing a lot with the two little ones running around. There are quite often some great outfits to be found. I picked up a very pretty Laura Ashley dress for Emma yesterday. So, a very productive shopping trip overall.

Uuugghh, I hope that doesn't happen to me! I had a crash as a kid that required 7 stitches in my chin....not something i would care to do as an adult. Maybe I'll practice a bit before getting on it with a baby on the back!
