Off to the lake
My firstborn son is going on vacation with his grandparents, without us. I miss him already and he leaves this afternoon. I know he will have a wonderful time and I wish we were going too, but alas, I am way too big and scarily pregnant for a 15 hour drive! He will swim, help with cooking, play with his uncle, and explore in the dark with his flashlight, among many other great things.
- 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.
