Morning! Yes, if you were wondering ifI am running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off, the answer is yes. Have to bring the boy to camp and then go replace my smashed to a million, tiny fine china glass pieces phone and then start wrapping my head around the fact that we are leaving on Saturday for a week vacation. It is high time I start to accept it and start, in some way, preparing for it. Can’t wait to go. In no way looking forward to the packing that lies ahead. I want to be my husband. I want to just get into a car on the day of departure and have all things thought of and taken care of. I want my children to be packed, food for the week thought out, nice towels to dry myself with and sheets to sleep on be placed in a laundry basket and ready for use. I want all of my laundry done and the house to be spotless for return arrival. That would be nice, right?
I want a wife.
I also want to introduce you to my newest baby jerk, Dominic. Arggghhh!! I can’t even stand him. I have seriously been missing him since I was at his house last week. He is the youngest in a line of my little boyfriends and he joined his brothers, Luca and Matteo about 4 months ago. Seriously, I went through some weird, delusional, month long, slow with work, irrational crazy time during the winter when I was entertaining the thought of having another baby.
Just freaking crazy talk.
I was in my slow season, playing a lot of Scramble on my couch and thinking that I could TOTALLY handle another one. I even went so far as to convince myself I WANTED another one. I was shooting all sorts of newborn baby jerks that seemed to all be in cahoots to try and make me believe that a sweet, snugly newborn would be a good idea.
Lucky for me, I snapped the hell out of that delusion and reactivated my newborn force field and those baby jerks were powerless against me. And then I had to go and meet my blue eyed nemesis, Dominic and I was weakened. I love him. I just love him and his little giggle, and happy personality, and big blue eyes. HOW does he have blue eyes?? I think maybe that is why he has the ability to cripple my non- baby wanting barrier. Something to do with those blue eyes. I am sure of it.
As always I loved spending time with my girl Carey, who amazes me with her ability as a mother. 3 boys under 3? No big deal. She just does it and does it beautifully and happily and it is people like her that make me believe there is such things as aliens. I just don’t get it. I give her all the credit in the world.
Get ready for this baby. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. I feel like there is a strong possibility of a a baby boom 9 months after this post is published.
Thank you guys! Well, most of you anyway. Thanks for nothing, Dominic..except for giving me the ability to now contemplate pregnancy or possibly kidnapping. Love you guys.
