I am a mom, a wife, daughter, sister, cousin and friend. I learn something new everyday. I am a compassionate person and tend to carry the world on my shoulders...I feel that it what God put me here to do. My greatest joy is wathcing my sons become closer to God and explore what the world has to offer them! I am a 2 time Preeclampsia survivor. AND I am a blog rookie, so bear with me ;)
I just received an email from one of my best friends (we have been friends since 7th grade) telling me that she has thyroid cancer. She had her thyroid removed and will begin iodine radiation as soon as she can wean her 6 month old son from breastfeeding and then not until 4 weeks after that. She, like me, nursed her first son well past a year and I know weaning her new baby this early is going to be sad for her. I ask you to please pray for her that all of the cancer was contained in her thyroid and that she has no cells anywhere else. Thank you.
My first lovely ball of sweetness. Hard to believe he was such a challenge to get here, then made his way into our lives squeeking... 6 weeks early at 3lbs 13 oz. He is a great friend, fiercly competitive, driven, loves to snuggle, very smart and has a WHOA watch out sassy streak (unlike his mother!) HA.
I am elated...and concerned as to how I am going to mangage ALL FOUR of my followers!!! Nah, just kidding. Kind of. So, I have figured out how to post a blog, yep, check...I can pop right on and see the new blogs posted, always so fun. BUT....there must be some way that I can see comments that others have made to me, right? Rather than going to my blog and trying to remember how many comments were under a post, there is an easier way, yes? I also have not perfected the "linking" thing. OK, perfected is a little over zealous. I HAVE NO CLUE. I have been "tagged" and believe me I have been wracking my brain to come up with 7 things that one may not know about me. That is forth-coming...I *will* be posting that, yep soon! In the mean time, is this just not one of the cutest balls of sweetness? My kind, thoughtful, sensitive, with a little naughty streak, little B... I have another little sweetie face too...tomorrow is HIS day! Off to do something constructive, so I can keep my ever so pristine title of "housewife" (not deseperate...never seen a episode. Hmmm..random unknown fact?)and Mommy in check.
Join the fun...let it all out and then pop over to MckMama's blog (www.mycharmingkids.net) to make yourself feel better about all of the things YOU did not do this week!
We DID NOT have a mouse (and please don't tell me if I have one, I have 10) in our basement that my oldest and I caught by trapping it under a broom then putting a bucket over it until it met it's demise...that would be disgusting.
My boys and I no way spent an hour watching stupid pet tricks on y.ou.tube...the funniest being the toilet trained cat (if only I could get them to aim that well)!!
I most certainly am not super excited for the snow storm coming...I don't love them!
We really have not had our Christmas tree up for 2 days and I have told my boys we have to wait to put the lights on until the branches fall a bit (which will be today, because it is my husband's day off and he LOVES to string the lights)
I did not have to go buy a new lamp yesterday, because I would NO WAY let my boys play basketball in the house and break the lamp. Are you kidding? Why would I do that when it is a balmy 13 degrees outside?
Did I bake cookies and take them out a little early so they were soft, which is how my husband DOES NOT like them, so he would not eat them all in one sitting...nope,nope,nope not me. I love him and when he eats 42 cookies in 24 hours.(AND doesn't gain an ounce...or an extra fat roll).
