Sorry for my absence! I've been busy just trying to a) find my socks and then b) find time to put them on-- and other simple things that were easy enough to do for myself pre-children. My heart-aches with missing Ethiopia as you could all suspect and I can't wait to return but in the meantime I thought I'd spend the next year
a) cleaning up breakfast off the floor,
b) pulling up my pants-that Debritu has pulled down-while still trying to finish doing the dishes
c) find all of the pieces to the toys so the kids can spread them out about the room the next time they play with them.
d) get the kids in and out of the car as I realize I've forgotten things in the house- eventually actually leaving to find we're late or I've pretty much forgotten where we were going to go or why it was important in the first place.
e) and most off all- sleep- what the heck- I thought people said kids sleep a lot???? I don't call being awake. Okay actually they are sleeping pretty well- but by the time I finish doing everything in the house they are awake again???
I'm dying for Letay and Escala and Heyme to come and help me!!!! Please. And if we have to eat Dabbo and Chai much longer I"m going to puke!!!
Okay- enough on that- I'll include some pictures in a bit- it's amazing to have the kidddos home- really it is. It's now noon- and feels like it should be around 6pm in my prior life as I watch the clock go tick tock tick tock and wonder how to "entertain" the next.
Trust me- for those of you still waiting (I'm socked and horrified that you don't have you referral yet E) and It sure is rewarding- but in the beginning don't be surprised if you find it terribly boring at times too... there are only so many times I can stand building the blocks up just to knock them down or hear "look at this momeyeh".... ugh but th Momeyeh part.. that's really cool.... the giardia filled diapers on the other hand... EWEWEEWWWWW
Hugs and love..
The days on the long road of one families Ethiopian Adoption
This blog started out as a way to record the twists, turns, highs and lows in my families journey to adopt siblings from Ethiopia. Now our children are home and we have just finished celebrating our first year as a family.
I'm Kimberly (or Fendesha), an adventurous person who aspires to be a vagabond- but for now- I spend all of my free time travelling and my down time thinking of travelling. I'm a mom of 3 (the oldest being my gorgeous canine companion), a IT project manager, and on occasion I find myself the primary writer of this blog.
Happy Reading and thank you for stopping by.
