OK, I am trying here. I don't know if I'm feeling it today. I did think of one thing earlier today, I'm definitely glad to be in area that is so diverse, with so many friendly people from all over the world. I was out walking with the Creature in the jogger and little Joaqueeny strapped on & an Indian woman stopped me so she could look at the sleeping baby. She talked to me for a little while about enjoying the kids and appreciating them-because the time flies by. She has 2 grandchildren and is really enjoying that part of her life. I needed to hear that today because my 4 year old is anything but enjoyable these past 2 days. He's a challenge, a child that maybe Brangelina might like to adopt? :). That's how I felt yesterday. Everything I do, he fights me. He wants to hit people bigger than him, he makes devilish faces as he thinks of new mischief. I am going away for 2 days to see my cousin's precious little girl. I am thankful for that. I am only bringing my nursling. My Creature can be so loving, but I hope my little break will give me renewed energy to work with his relentless energy.
- 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.
