This was a little of Saturday night and a little of Sunday night. The last weekend together before the man of the house starts his crazy schedule for the next month, where we won't see much of him.
The little guy loves to jump on the bed and repeatedly get himself into a weird airplane pose. I will miss this a lot when he stops doing it! Its really funny to watch and his brothers love to do it with him.
We wanted to party for the Superbowl, but we don't have too many sporty friends, so we kept it simple, a fire, the TV on, all of us having a picnic of tacos and nachos in the basement. Homebrew for the adults, soda treat for the kids. The little Teeny sat in a basket and read a book during our little party. Now, the hectic week is here and I have to get in bed! It is becoming harder and harder to get out of bed in the morning.
- 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.
