I just found this picture from last spring and my heart went boom boom a little bit
these babies, they grow so fast (sunrise, sunset, tiny violins)
and then they turn into this:
and even bigger into this:
"hey Mom, look at my big muscles"
excusi poor telefono foto quality
it's all nonsense, this motherhood gig
so much stress
so many nights without sleep
such a short temper
so often running out of ideas
so much wearing of birthday boots to make myself feel better for miserably failing at everything else
you like those thighs, I know you do...
I lost a little bit of my Christmas cheer over the last week or two, but I think it came back tonight.
This week's top 10 to-do list:
#1. Wednesday, my Connie is coming up to stay the night.
I love it when Connie stays the night and sleeps on my couch.
Plans for her overnight stay include Zoolights and the gingerbread houses at Riverwoods
#2 watch "White Christmas" and "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation"
#3. Finish up Christmas shopping-just stocking stuffers and some last minute items of interest
#4. Friday means Paul is off for a few days. Happy Happy Joy Joy.
#5. maybe lights at Temple Square?
#6. Some baking. Because it's Christmas and I need to bake.
#7. Christmas Eve with the rest of the Verbies. I like these people.
#8. Christmas morning. Glory Glory Christmas morning
what should I make for breakfast?
#9. 1 hr Christmas church
#10. Christmas prime rib with my family
