This baby will be number 5 for us. My others are 7, 5,2, and 8 months. This is the first one I've been nervous about having because I will be sooo out numbered. How will I handle it all? How do you handle it all? I hope this pregnancy goes by very slowly.

Any calming words of wisdom?

I've only taken all 4 shopping alone once and that was enough for me. I imagine it will be better when I'm not nursing a baby with three other kids that having nothing to do but stand and stare at me.

In my heart I know it will all work out and we'll find our groove. I was having a bad day yesterday and my kiddos took advantage of it. I gave them an inch and they took a mile. I was having a worrisome moment that I've never had with any of the other kids. I don't feel our house is chaotic. Don't get me wrong our house has chaotic moments it's just not a regular vibe. We homeschool so chaos is not something we can afford.

This is only (only! ha) number three for us, but I really need to know -- how do you ladies do it?
