I am ridiculously high risk when I`m pregnant, I can`t give birth without major surgery, I can`t leave the hospital on the same day as my babies, and I definitely look pregnant for a while after giving birth. All of that just sucks, but today I`m going to think about all the stuff I never had to deal with because its never all bad..
I never had postpartum depression, sleep deprivation or a fussy baby. I never had engorgement, never had a kid with an ear infection, no mastitis. Not too shabby!
- 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.
