More than a dream

Today is Thursday, which means my Mom has been here almost a full week. And, what a wonderful, helpful, restful week it has been!

She has made sure that:
- All floors have been mopped or vacuumed.
- All surfaces have been dusted.
- All bathrooms have been cleaned.
- All laundry has been washed/folded/put away.
- The pantry, fridge, and freezers have been stock-piled with groceries.
- Five meals and a couple loaves of bread are made and in the freezer for future use.

BUT, the best part? (Drum roll please.) My boys have gone to the park several times, played by the creek, made forts, read books, raced cars, done puzzles, and played soccer ALL with the help of Grandma... while I slept or read. This is the stuff dreams are made of!

In other news, yesterday's doctor appointment confirmed a due date for September 28. Everything looks good as of now and I am hoping to be a new person very soon since I now have nausea meds. I'm not joking when I say that my doctor/patient first visit went like this:

Dr.: "Hi Sarah! Good to see you again. Congrats on another baby! How are things going?"
Me: "Nice to see you too. Things will start going very good when you have a seat right there on that stool and write a prescription for some Zofran. Once that's in my possession, we can continue this appointment."

You might think I'm kidding or even slightly exaggerating, but I can assure you I am not.


  1. What an awesome blessing - both mom & the meds - I hope that you are feeling back to 100% very soon!! Glad you got some meals and rest - moms rock!! Just enjoyed a week with my mom here as well - just another set of hands to unbuckle the carseats helps a TON!!!

  2. Okay Momma...head on over to the Jimenez house! Our floors are dirty, our bellies are hungry, our kids are cryin, our bathrooms...well, we won't go there! :-) Have a good few more days lovin on your momma!!! Glad you got the hook-up w/the drugs!!!

  3. Oh Sarah, I love your little conversation with the doctor! So glad you have some meds & hope that they will have you feeling wonderful very soon! Praying for you & that precious baby!
    Your mom is such a wonderful blessing! I know it has been such a joy & relief having her there!

  4. I call it "beautiful chaos"... you wouldn't want it any other way. So glad your mom could help.
