The Creature speaks! Actually he`s been saying stuff like "what's this mama?" and "I want that!" Today we were at Ross Dress for Less and a baby was crying in the back of the store. Young Creature looked at me and said , "What`s wrong with that baby, mama?" I didn`t even know he cared about anybody besides the Creature!
There are 3 things I had to do to make my days more positive. One is no watching E.R. The second is no internet debate sites and the third thing I forgot. Last night I broke rule #1 and watched E.R. Oh boy, it was awful. A baby was trying to come out footling breech and the mom was a homebirther who was a gestational surrogate for this baby. She totally refused a section and then the baby was born severely brain damaged. What the heck is wrong with me that I will sit and watch that? One of her doctors did act like a nut, but it was so sad and now its still on my mind. E.R. hates natural people and all of the natural birthing chicks on Mothering.com are going off on it today.
It`s Friday so that means...its neighborhood freak out cocktail hour in half an hour. I must primp and tidy & get some food ready.
- I'm just a mom in the world. A crunchy Catholic mama of 6 trying to make sense of it all and stay positive. 5 boys here & 1 in heaven. One awesome man who I get to grow old with. I help new moms breastfeed. I`m happy. I don`t go to shows or dance clubs every night but I would if I could. Where`s the nanny? When I see her she`s SO fired! One of my boys is super sweet and sensitive, another one is a holy terror. I learn a ton from all of them daily. Like Nigella says, as any parent of small children knows,there comes a point in the day where you can`t go any further without a drink! I love cocktail hour. I`d like nothing more than to be with my family and some good friends surrounded by tropical plants drinking a margarita listening to the Eagles. I don`t care about trendy, I like that grungy 70`s vibe.
