Just So Busy: Reynolds, Round 7, Fall

Russell Reynolds is 33, Taja Reynolds is 26, Nicholas Reynolds-Testy is 3, Ross Reynolds is 2, and Bekah and Christina Reynolds are 1

Narrated by Russell Reynolds

Life has been so busy lately, it’s so chaotic in our house right now, you can barely walk without tripping over a toddler.  Four toddlers under four… definitely not an enviable position to be in.

Not to mention that we have to work on training the kids up, helping the talk, walk and use the potty and such.  Thank god Nicky starts pre-school next year, I think I’d die if I had to do this for another year.  Although, we’ll still have three toddlers to deal with next year…

Plus the kids are always hungry. I know it’s because they’re growing and all, but really! Just the other day, Taja caught Ross trying to eat his teddy bear. Luckily she had a bottle of formula in hand already, that could have meant a trip to the hospital!

The kids at least like to sleep.  Once Ross goes to sleep, he’s out like a rock!

And Nicky is usually quick to follow him in that!

On top of all of that, Taja and I are working on trying to plan our wedding.  Lately we’ve been staying up until the wee hours of the morning, just trying to book caterers, buy decorations, and find the dresses.  Taja’s already found a nice church, so we at least know the location now.  She insists on dress shopping by herself though, she won’t even let me see the names of the stores she’s looking up, in case I should happen upon the dress she wants.

We still find time for ourselves though, as crazy as that may seem.  We don’t want to lose our romance in our lives, so we try to do something separate from the kids at least once a week, even if that’s just going to a park, or watching a show on TV without the kids.

But somehow, we always manage to make sure that we go to bed together.  I really like being able to curl up next to Taja when we go to sleep, and know that soon she’ll be my wife.


  • Sorry this one was kind of short, they really didn’t have anything going on, which was nice
  • Their wedding is in the Spring, and it should be pretty nice, I can’t wait!
  • Taja has ANOTHER baby want! Um… no! At least not now, maybe a little later, when all of the toddlers are kids.  She’s really done a 180 from her romancin’ ways, hasn’t she!

    Wow, Taja wanting another baby! Man, thats a lot of kids… I love them all crashed out in the play area. She should invest in those “toddler” pet beds, so they could put themselves to sleep.

      Haha yes, the toddlers were all tired, and Taja and Russell were hungry, so I let them sleep 🙂 Lol, that’s a good idea, I think I’ll try that 😉

    Taja is insane, lol! All those kids they already have aren’t enough for her yet? That house certainly looks chaotic. I agree with Maisie, they should get some of those pet beds around the house so the kids can sleep in them when they get tired, lol. Toddlers seem to love them anyway. 😉
