Every week when school is out I try to have at least 1 or 2 days devoted to outings with the boys. This week my mom was able to be with us and we had such a great day Thursday. First we went to a greenhouse in a local park completely filled with butterflies, they were from all over the world & they hatch and live in this greenhouse, sometimes they land on you too. Its so relaxing in there except that it was the hottest place I've been in a long time. It was like a quick trip to the hottest day of the year in a Costa Rican jungle, although I wouldn't know because I'm too scared of spiders to go to Costa Rica.

Then we had a picnic in a nearby park & Karl rode alone on the zebra on the carousel for the first time. His older brother was in magic & clown camp all week so it was fun to just let a 4 year old do his own thing all day. We explored at his pace & it was great.

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.
