yes. life is good.
and, i have 2 moments for ya.
my happy feeling started at pta...
can you see Anna? Second row, flower in her hair.
As I watched her sing I just felt what a good girl she is, and how blessed I am to be a mother.
To be HER mother. She is a joy. All my kids are.
Really, I like them. I'd pick them out of a crowd and want them in my family.
It brought tears to my eyes... I am so blessed to have these great kids.
And, it changed me. I popped out of my "it's hard" place and I'm back in my "it's a blessing" place.
this is where i love to be.
and then today, i had playgroup at my house.
my house was REGULAR.
my mom is moving in with us tonight, and so my bedrooms are all half-moved and not perfect.
yes, i straightened. but i don't have the desire or the energy to really clean like i normally would for a house full of guests.
i just straightened and let it be real life.
and, it was so fun.
i LOVE these women (and their cute kids)
i love them. and, i need them.
it's not too hard to be social...
and, who knew that i really do like people even when i'm pregnant.
see... i'm still in here.
look how cute these kids are.
and, i held a cute little baby and just about died...
i can't wait for a baby... oh, the joy a baby brings to a family.
i rocked this baby to sleep and just held her while she slept.
lily came out and was so cute... "baby, baby!" she kept saying.
then she went and got a baby stroller for me to put the baby in...
she kept petting the baby's head, which made the baby wake up a little.
i said, "Shh, the baby's sleeping."
but, when lily saw the baby's eyes open a little bit she yelled, "WAKE!!! See mom, baby WAKE!!!"
i smiled... oh yes, I know just what is in store for me when my baby is born...
LOTS of baby lovers in my family.
i can't wait.
