Another birthday at the cemetary. This time was special, I can't believe its been 5 years. My parents came with us for the first time, we planted alyssum & hen & chicks, we sent 5 balloons up. It was a beautiful, peaceful day. When I think of this same day 5 years ago, its heartbreak all over again. But I stop and think of the beautiful little boys that have come into our lives since then, I am amazed and grateful. I also want them to always know about their precious older brother, Alistair.
- 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.
