I have done this all before but...

I always forget how much extra time we have to allow in the mornings to get socks, shoes/boots, coats and fall gear on the five kids! But, we still make it early to school! Even with all of the extra steps to our fall/winter routine. Thankfully my kids are pretty used to our routines! But, still. It takes a 'getting used to it' period. Thankfully we are almost there again!

I also decided I really don't enjoy the rain. Well, maybe being pregnant in the rain. Makes for more challenges just for myself. Not so fun. I don't have shoes that fit my feet, and that is a problem. Flip flops in the rain are not a good idea. Very SLIPPERY! I also don't have a winter coat that fits. So, I layer. But, the layers get wet. Yup. Lovely BC Weather. Can't wait until I can wear some different clothes!

I was just saying to Jon last week - I can't wait until we can stop putting sunscreen on the kids before day care! He said - but then we have to get out coats! I will take sunscreening two toddlers any day over coats!

Lovely B.C weather is right. We are feeling the rain here too.

I am not pregnant, but I am having a hard time finding proper jackets up here for the kids, and then there is the getting the moving in the morning!! lol... not nearly the five you have but it is still a mission. I am dreading the snow here... ugh!

I think a full day of shopping and pampering is in order once number six is bigger. A reclaiming yourself celebration!
