Mothers Day 2009

Around 10 months after having a baby, my hormones get wacky. I get really sad, I get really agitiated. My skin bleeds and cracks from something funky internally... I fight with prog cream">THIS and fight with 369">These among other things and, for atleast the last three babies, I have had to wean them at 12 months.

Can you guess how old this guy is?

Yep. 10 months, almost to the day. So, here I am :)

My husband has a dear dear cousin. Although she is a lot younger than us (atleast 16 years) she has been such a blessing and truly been "family." I "realized" that she was graduating from college on Saturday. How did this happen and we not know about it? Were there announcements? Should we have just known? Were there invites? Were there only so many people per student allowed? The college had been evacuated due to the Jesusita fire. Was the ceremony moved? postponed? I graduated from the SAME college (albeit 15 years ago) was it assumed that I knew these things? I called my in-laws. Yes, they were going. was already too late for me to rally to go. I missed her college graduation. I had had the forethoguht to send a card. What was my excuse for missing her graduation ceremony?
Oh thats right i was sorting socks and eating doughnuts...although my husband is working, I have a 10 month old, a toddler, a house guest and 3 other children.....I wasn't JUST eating doughnuts, I was cooking and cleaning for those 6 other people...and doing a ton of laundry (that is an estimate) and driving to and from activities and....I missed her graduation...I cant believe I missed her graduation.

So....Saturday night I cry and cry and clean the kitchen with no abandon and Sunday I stay in bed until 1:01. I woke up to this....
my dear dear daughter :) She made me a card that read "Happy Movers Day" She made me a necklace, she made me paper flowers, and she made me a hanging plate...WOW huh!
At 4:10 decide to rally and get dressed and have tea and pie :) Not because I feel like it. How often do I do what I feel? Maybe I have been delt a bad hand, maybe my life is horrible and maybe I should have just stayed in bed. But, right now, fair or not I am what these 5 children have and they deserve a good Mothers day memory :) So I suck it up and smile, put on a little make up and.........

We celebrated :)

First you had me laughing (hello doughnuts) then you had me "oohing" and "awing" over the card, then I read this: "Maybe I have been delt a bad hand, maybe my life is horrible and maybe I should have just stayed in bed." Do explain friend? You're making me feel sad now!

wow this is such a heartwarming story. Belated Happy Mother's Day to you. Judging from this post you are one very special mom. thanks for your sweet comment on my "procrastinator tiling project". I enjoyed the mosaic; it may be a bit more work than straight tiling but definitely more fun.

the photo of your baby is darling.

this post of yours gave me added inspiration to start preparing my son's graduation announcements.

thanks again,

Thanks for visiting my blog and entering the contest. I also do the progesterone cream, but my "crazy" symptoms had gotten to the point where my doctor put me on the prescription kind you get from a compounding pharmacist. Hang in there! Hormones and all their lovely fluctuations are are the symptoms from them. Can I get a big UGH!!!! Thanks for making my morning tea wonderful! Vanilla Caramel, YUM!
