Wow! Christmas and New Years was great,very draining, but all was well with our family. I was overwhelmed with Christmas play practice for the oldest, all the regular shopping, baking, entertaining etc. I got sick 3 different times in a month. Stomach, sinus, stomach! All treated naturally thank God. I need a lot less food and a break. I just want to get out and walk in the woods with these boyz. These are all good problems to have, happy kids at Christmas, something to do to almost every night, fun with uncles and extended family and friends. Now its all about focusing on getting back on track and staying mindful and present in the moment.
- 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.
