Cant believe my baby is going to be a momma. Its such an amazing circle of life. Time just goes by too quickly. They always said it would but now that I see my kids growing up and becoming real adults I realize that its flying by

Amanda had the IVF transfer this morning . The Dr put 2 embryos inside of her. I know the excitement and anticipation she is feeling . Her mind is probably going non-stop from picking out nursery decor to the “what-ifs”
My daughter is a planner, just like me. She will know exactly what she wants and will make a way to get it. If she hits a bump in the road she holds on and prevails. She will be an amazing Mommmy. She can multi task like no one else I know.

Making important calls

Tubby Bath Time

I’m getting ready to go to dinner with Corey as Hannah helps get the boys in the tub. As I sit at the dressing table fixing my hair and putting make-up on I can hear big sister praising Andy, “keep your eyes closed, GOOD BOY!”as she pours the water over his head. Both boys are giggling and splashing around. Now they are singing. She is teaching them Christmas Carols..”you better watch out, you better not cry…” She handles both of them with ease and like a pro.
She is their 2nd little mama.
I’m smiling just listening to the 3 of them interact. She lets the water go down the drain and says, “bye bye water!” the boys say, “bye wawa” Noah says “see ya!”
How did I get so blessed???


Been feeling well. I’ve been taking my injections daily for almost 2 months now and I can say there are no side effects. There is a nasty burn and welt after i take the shot, as if a bee stung me. But that’s it. I feel fine, just tired. But having a 2 yr old in your bed every night will do that.

I love my life.

I love my husband beyond words or cards, or superficial junk… I’m blessed that he loves me too. He shows me every day.

I like to keep busy all the time. I really have no use for t.v. I would much rather be doing something, anything productive than sit and watch Corey surf channels. If there is a good movie on then I will sit.

Pet peeves are: laziness. Apathy.being late. sarcasm, unless it’s me being sarcastic…stupidity. More on that I’m sure in future posts. Image

My 80-something MOM

momShe will still correct me and I still hide stuff from her….. Like when I got a micro-dermal piercing on my neck last year.
Its just not worth the explanation,,,
One day she saw my belly piercing when I happened to lift my arms and my shirt went up. She said, “so you have your naval pierced??” to which I could not deny. So she says “what is the purpose of it?” I could not give a strong argument other than, “because I wanted to” .
Sounds like a dialogue between a teenager and her mom, not a 40 something yr old and her mom…

I guess we never stop being MOM.. I have learned a lot from my mother about mothering. I learned that I will not judge my kids for their diversity. I will not be closed-minded. I will not scowl when they come home with a new embellishment when they are adults. I will love them no matter what. I will embrace their differences because after all they are a by product of me and if i don’t love them then I don’t love myself.

I also learned incredible strength from my mom.

I know my mom loves me and I do her. She’s just old school. She shows love by fixing or trying to fix things and people… I love by accepting and being that warm safe place to land.

That’s what I would want……
