My second son
I love that I can finally put a picture of my precious boy, Alistair, on the computer. I had 3 kids in 3 years, with 3 social security cards to prove it. Only 2 live with us though. If I don`t bring him up though, you`d never know about Alistair. Compared to the other 2, he was born with almost no hair and a very clear dimple in his chin. He was extremely cute. Since its been 3 years I don`t talk about him as much yet I think about him every day. One of the hardest parts of being a parent of a child who dies is that you are always their parent. We had him with us for 7 weeks, this photo was 2 days before he died. Of hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy. That`s really all I have to say about it today.
- 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.
