Facebook stole my blogging energy! Plus the whole mommy blogging world is so competitive, I didn't feel like I was up to it anymore. I am too busy living to be posting about it all. Yet its worth keeping a blog so I can se my kids through the years, I love going back & looking at their stages, since I don't scrapbook--this is my scrapbook.
Last year at this time I was in the hospital, with no idea if my baby would make it through my kidney drama. My urologists were all a bunch of lunchboxes.Thanks to my OB, the only one who knew what was wrong with me, and my own intuition, I made it home & Ramsay made it here healthy & whole!
My days are just frantic with 4 boys, breastfeeding & diapers. The only reason I am able to be here now is the snowstorm we had yesterday that dumped 2 feet of snow in Va.
Some highlights of the fall:
-my mom & I went on a silent retreat, we brought only the baby, it was amazing. I can't wait to go back.
-Jakob has become the biggest fan of Elvis
-the Creature has evolved into a kid that is enjoying school sometimes :)
-Ramsay is 8 months old, boo hooo, growing up too fast!
-JX loves preschool
-my darling husband still makes great beer & is getting to be in the best shape of his life in spite of it :) :)
- 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.
