This mommy is very sick


I haven't been posting anything this week because I'm sick and stuck in bed. All my body hurts and If I get out of my bed, I feel dizzy.
Phil got me an iPad! So I can have fun while I'm resting...
I will be back when I will feel better.

3/52



                               "A portrait of my children, once a week, every week in 2014"

I'm joining in with the 52 project.

Miko : playing the ukulele.
Saule : wasn't feeling well this week, but is doing  better today.
Loïk : his sore stomach and  head ache are back :(

Winter isn't a good season for us. The kids and my husband have been getting pretty sick. Saule is at home and missing a lot of pre-school since she's not feeling well. I have been staying inside in my pyjama's all day. It's fun, but I'm looking forward to sliding and skating with my little one's. Hopefully things will pass and these germs will get out of the house in a couple days!

Having a fourth child



I announced yesterday on Facebook that I am pregnant.
It wasn't planned, but we're happy about it!
We know that it's not going to be easy, but we're making changes for 2014 and I'm sure we will manage (hopefully). I know that Phil has back problems and things weren't so easy for us because of that. He's slowly getting better with Physio. We're very positive about it and his back is getting stronger and stronger every day !

 It's crazy. I will have four kids at the young age of 30. Pretty rad!
It's scary and yet I'm so excited to get things ready for this child. The kids are really happy and the boys want a little brother and Saule obviously wants a little sister. We will see. I really want the sex of this baby to be a surprise till I give birth!
I really feel sick, witch really sucks. I'm always laying around the house with pillows and the kids are allowed to watch a lot of t.v. Hopefully it will pass !
I will take a picture every month (or so) of my belly. It's exciting to see how fast it grows.

Miko : sometimes he's able to play nicely.
Saule : not feeling so good this week.
Loik : getting off the bus after school with a really bad stomach and head ache

This week was pretty hard for us.
Saule has Scarlet Fever. She's doing better with antibiotics, hopefully ! But I'm still afraid that the other two will get it :( My husband is pretty sick as well. He has been in bed for almost a week not being able to do anything. I hope that everything will get in order so we can go skating with the kids :)
Have a wonderful weekend xo

Saule's room.

This is my favorite room in the house.
My 4 1/2 year old is such a doll. She loves it when I decorate her room and really encourages me to rearrange things from time to time.
I usually find most of the stuff second hand, but sometimes I go crazy and buy stuff from Urban Outfitters, Ikea or Target.
Here's a little tour of her room :



I let her put stickers and her drawings on the wall. She's pretty happy that I let her do this.

I found this beautiful rug at Urban Outfitters. Love it.


We're not feeling all that well today, ( I'm sore all over and Saule hasn't been herself either for the past couple of days) So we're taking it slow at home.
Enjoy your day

Getting organised!







So, 2014 is looking great !

Most people have resolutions for the new year. I usually don't. Maybe because I'm lazy or maybe because I think that my life is perfect. Well, it's not and I need to get more organised!!

I am super motivated and I would like to share with you what I have been up too :

-I write on my blackboard every meal for the week including weekends! I make sure that we have everything we need to eat for the week in the fridge on sunday, so that I don't need to go to the supermarket 10 times. Way more easier! I even prepared supper for tonight this morning! Like common, this is great ! :)
I usually don't really know what I am cooking 1h before lunch or supper time so I get a little stressed out and the kids get a little crazy as well. It's not healthy. If I'm stressed, the kids are too and we don't want that, right? I really hope that I will continue this way because it's better for our family.

-I cleaned out the kids toys! I love doing this, but the kids don't since I give away toys that they don't play with. They get mad and say that they really need those toys. Ahh, kids. Gotta love them. Anyways, I changed the way I put my Ikea expedit shelving unit and I love it.

-I started to plaster holes in my living room. I really want to paint my walls in white. It will get done before this summer hopefully! :-)

-I do laundry everyday and fold it when it's ready with the kids. I tend to fold clothes when the kids are sleeping... witch is fine, but I'm tired at that end of the day, so doing it during the day with the kids is better for us. Oh and the hubby helps me out as well ;)

-I found a daycare for my 2 1/2 year old. I will send him a couple days a week while I start my new part-time job. He's not really excited about it, he actually said that he will eat the kids, but I guess he will get used to it. I really need this, since my husband is doing physio everyday since he can't work due to back problems and he's trying to get better.
I also decided that my 2 older kids will go to camp this summer. Yep. I never really wanted them to go there, but they have a lot of friends that are going and I think it will really be good for them and for me. 

Well, that's it for now. I think that we're going on the right track. I really hope that I will continue to get organised throughout the year. Yay!

HELLO!

I got my camera back. I'm so happy!
I haven't been posting anything because of that.
I didn't finish the other 52 project, but I will do this one for 2014.




                             "A portrait of my children, once a week, every week in 2014"

Saule : not feeling all that well...  just chullin' on the sofa.
Loïk : just got up and is still pretty tired.
Miko : just lying on the table.

We have been spending a lot of time inside since it's pretty cold outside.
We also have been partying a lot and the kids have been going to bed pretty late. I am anxious to get back to routine. Miko is starting daycare and I'm starting a new part time job. So excited!

Have a great day !
