We`re not spending any $ this week, so I`ve been cleaning, sometimes with Teeny strapped on. Here`s baby & mama, here`s a happy Creature in the living room & a cleaned up basement. I`m scared to have a cocktail hour because my basement is always the first casualty & then the boys rooms get trashed.
I`m also struggling this week with the decision of how to educate my oldest. Should he be homeschooled or do I continue to keep him in his public school up the street? Do I try private school or maybe the school my mom teaches at? It is such a tough one, he is starting to hate school , the one size fits all teaching style is not interesting him at all & yet he loves to learn.
- 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.
