If you are following along with my story at all here on Or Whatever You Do, you’ll have read a bit about what’s been going on with our family the last several months.

Basically, due to some unfortunate circumstances, my two nephews were in the position of needing a home this year. They are just little guys – not even 1 and 2 when they got here to us. Fortunately they had never lacked for love in their little lives, but their biological parents were no longer able to care for them and they needed a place to call home.

After a very long process of being approved through the social services system, they flew halfway across the country with my Mom and my aunt to make it here and into our family and all of our hearts.

It hasn’t been easy. I was pretty nervous about the social services approval process, but every single case worker I’ve dealt with has been not only really nice, but also really supportive and helpful.

I was also really nervous about getting and bonding with two babies that I hadn’t carried and birthed and raised from their first days. It’s something I’d never done before. There was also the logistics of going from 5 kids to 7.

I used to joke that really? What was the difference? It was already pure chaos around here. There aren’t different levels of chaos – so it’ll be fine.


Oh – denial. You are totally not just a river! Turns out there are different levels of chaos, but like always – you adapt.

You find what works, what doesn’t, and little ways to make it through the day with minimum destruction and tears.

But don’t let me fool you – three babies? It’s a lot of work. Three babies + four elementary aged boys + 2 full-time working parents = call me in a few years and I’ll maybe have come up for air by then.

Need some quick and easy dinner ideas to calm your chaos? Here are some great ones!

It’s a LOOOOOOT. But I’m so glad we’re able to do it.

It’s been such a blessing watching these little guys adapt to our family and watch the bonds grow between the new siblings.

Amelia now essentially has a twin (they are only 4 months apart!) – and it’s been awesome watching them go from, “Cannot be left together outside of the reach of an adult – ever” to best buddies. Holding hands, and like two little peas in a pod. Partners in crime, even.

If you have the room in your homes and your life, trust that the Lord will make room in your heart. There are so many kids in the foster care system that are in desperate need of a stable, loving home. If adopting isn’t what you’re called to, there’s the option of being that loving place in-between too. Foster parents are so necessary in the process too.

You can also become an available respite care option for foster parents. Having a break now and then is so essential to being able to be a good parent. I would give my right arm for someone to offer to come and take the kids off of our hands for a few hours so we can get away for a bit…together…when we aren’t working.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 15 minutes


  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons sugar

  1. Beat the whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla until stiff peaks form. Stir in the marshmallows, and set aside.

Hi Nicole, I have been going absolutely crazy trying to find one of your ingredients for your No Bake Cherry Cheesecake Fluff Pie. I have been all over the city to try and find Instant cheesecake pudding mix, and have had no luck whatsoever! Just to clue you in, I am Canadian who lives in Windsor Ontario.I have checked out Walmart Superstore, Zehrs and Zehrs Superstore, Food Basics, and Fresh Co,none of these carry this item. My question to you is what can i use to substitute foe this ingredient??? I really want to try this recipe out and my husband keeps asking when i am gonna make it, so i really need your help.

Hey Cindy! You can probably buy it from Amazon: Or if there aren't delivery options for you in Canada, you can substitute in regular vanilla pudding as well and it'll still be delicious!
