**What would be good punishment for a tree? Like one that totally punched out my tail light and smooshed up my bumper?
**Gonna sew a new diaper bag because I can’t even zip the one I have. I need to figure out what pockets I need to sew on the lining and divider. Any thoughts?
several size 1 diapers
change of clothes for Denton
several size 4 diapers
warm footie socks in case I go to someone’s house w/ cold floors
Seriously, that’s all I can think of that’s in that thing–why won’t the bag zip? Here’s the bag I plan to attempt. It’s from Anna Maria Horner’s book Handmade Beginnings.
**I’m considering making my first quilt, also from this fabulous book.
**Denton’s basically 11 pounds. 1 month old. Awesome. He smiled at me on his one month birthday. I was thrilled.
**Especially because I had mastitis, and was super duper sick and pretty much was sure I was going to die. Prayer and antibiotics have done the trick to bring me back from the brink.
**I have since learned that in some cases, royal jelly can be used in lieu of antibiotics. Biotic means “life”–anti “life” is just not that encouraging. I hate that I am on antibiotics.
**Is it a coincidence that mastitis has the word “tit” in it?
**Yesterday Grandma had the girls, so the boys and I went to church and then made a relatively quick stop at Target. When Aviana was two and Brielle was my baby, I thought, “Wow! Super store with two kids; what a chore, what a challenge, what an arduous undertaking!”. Now, with a two year old and my baby being half of what I would normally take to the store, I think, “WOW! Super store with two kids; what leisure, what liberty, what a profligate privilege!”

I can totally relate to that last comment… it is amazing what a few years and a few kids can do to change one's perspective, isn't it? 🙂
just wait until they grow up and don't want to go to the store with you no matter how much you beg or bribe them with. Then shopping becomes really fun.
Isn't amazing how perspective changes the more kids one has… even dropping down one kid creates a sense of lightness! 🙂
I never got mastitis while nursing my kids but I was well on the way there a couple times. Even then, I was in agony. I'm so thankful that you are on the road to recovery.
Sorry about your car. That tree needs a good spankin'.
So sorry to hear about the mastitis. Hope you are doing better.
What a great picture of your 4…I love you and your stories about your life!
Omg, isn't mastitis the worst thing EVER? I got it AFTER I'd given up on nursing my daughter…and I wanted to die. My then-husband thought I was faking it, because all I could do was lie on the couch, moan, and shiver. Awful. Hope you're feeling better!
