My shire-like neighborhood (next to the house) and my new plant!

The boyz on Easter Sunday, after getting up at 6 to see their Easter baskets. Here they are at their grandparent`s house.

Thank God

Finally, for the first time in this pregnancy, I feel a little relaxed about things, as much as a mom like me can. I had my big 20 week ultrasound today & my placenta that was a complete previa, has moved! This little one is definitely a boy and looks very healthy on u/s. What a blessing, I can`t believe how it all gets built so well in there.

Delicious cocktail hour treats at the beach.
Grateful Wednesday

Today I am grateful to be feeling good and its beautiful outside.

I am grateful for the sweetness of my toddler right now, his hugs and kisses are the best. Pulling him in a wagon at the garden store was excellent.

I am grateful for a LLL meeting last night that flowed smoothly after a challenging start and many new mamas enjoying the heck out of their babies.

Being right on the beach was the best! It was the best sleep I`ve had in years.

the view from our bedroom at the beach in Emerald Isle!

So, I was having a very hard day with big worries about Chunky # 4 and yet nothing has happened yet, its just doctors throwing probabilities and stats at me.

I go pick up my contax and they were playing Don Henley in the waiting room. I felt instantly relaxed as I pictured myself not pregnant one day, with kids entertaining themselves at the beach as I stand with a drink in my hand watching the sunset and hearing the Eagles. AHH, instant relaxation. As I left the office I thought wouldn`t it be nice if I could turn on the radio & keep hearing the Eagles. And it happened exactly like that! So it goes to show, you never know. I`m simple, I`ll take any little sign, so that little sign makes me feel a little better. Tomorrow we head for the beach!

About Me

My photo
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.
