Labor Day

Meerkat at the zoo

uld you put on my sunscreen mama?
Party on the pier
Adorable baby kitty

The man of the house had to work and the kidz and I went to visit family in Norfolk/Va Beach. More beach time and some fabulous outdoor meals were had. The second night we had a crab feast and cocktail hour on a pier across the street from my cousin's house. The family that lives in the house with the pier were such neat people, a retired pilot, his artist wife & 3 grown girls. They had adorable teeny tiny kittens that the boys fell in love with. We also went to the zoo, which was walking distance. It was a great weekend, what was best about was that I am trying hard to be better as a mother, to devote equal time to the offspring and to stay positive with them. There were stressful moments but I kept my cool and for the first time in the year since I've had 3, I feel like its getting almost easy.

Now that I've said that, watch all hell break loose!

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.
