Life with Coco and Gigi... and Jack-Jack too!

Life as a Mom, A Homesteader, A Blogger and A Wife.

Our circus goes on the road

In four days we board a plane and head to Florida. We have been planning our trip to Disney World for over two years now. When we started planning there was no Jack. My Dad didn't have cancer. My kids were only 3 years old. The boys were 9 and 10 and Genna was only 15. Life looked different. The trip we planned got cancelled. My Dad got sick and all of us made the decision that this trip would be taken when he was well and life was on track. It was a rough year. We almost lost my Dad. We almost lost Jack. We hit a lot of bumps in the road. But we survived.

And now we take our victory lap. We get to take the trip we were going to take just under a year ago. And our vacation looks even better than it did before. We have Jack. The kids are all older and more self-sufficient. My Dad is doing amazing. We get to stay ON SITE at the newest resort! (I have never stayed on site before so I am stoked about this!) It feels like it's all coming together.

It will be a whirlwind. We know that. It will be a little insane at times. There will be more than enough meltdowns and attitudes to go around with kids ranging from 17 (and no, she doesn't really count as a kid anymore... but to me she's still a kid!) to 5 months. But it's gonna rock. It's the first vacation in a VERY LONG TIME where my Mom and I don't have to do any cooking, cleaning, shopping or meal planning. I can't wait!

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
