Teeny asleep and a happy Christmas creature. We had the classic Latino Christmas Eve celebration with husband`s fam and then up early to see what Santa left & then over to my parents` for the classic Gringo Christmas day family freak out. It was awesome.
You know, I`d love to write more and be really witty and fun, but my brainpower is really lacking. I think there`s an intense postpartum period for like 6 months where its all about survival, baby and mama. My brain and deep thoughts are gone for awhile as I make milk and chase the boys around. Its not PPD, in fact I feel blissful everytime I look at the baby, its just that I do what I can and I don`t do a lot extra. I go to bed tired every night, the good tired I had when I was a mover in college.
- 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.
