I don't knowif I wrote about this-- but two weeks after the new baby was born I was sitting nursing her and reading one of those Baby magazines (the ones I typicalluy find relly boring after having SIX children... but it was free from the hospital so I took it.) I read "Only on TV do new mom's leave the hospital in their old jeans from high school. I happened to be wearing a pair of old white pants which I recalled were given to me by my brother Bri one Christmas-- yes in High School!! Just a little thing to boast of which made me feel pretty good! THe secret to staying healthy and trim? Perpetually running after toddlers... so it won't work for most of you as it takes a certain type of insanity to continually have babies :)
On that note, I think this time Westely and I are REALLY done with having children.
WE have our hands happily full as it is, and we have so many issues to work on between us, and we have this mess of a custody case with KAterina and Soren's Dad.... its just not a good time to expand the family EVEN MORE! So perhaps I will stop with this little girl who is baby # 6 and is two months old now.
ITs starting to get cold here. I am surprised KAterina and Soren's Dad hasn't made the effort to take a drive down here to get all their warmer clothes. I did mail their winter coats and dress shoes to them about six weeks ago so they'd have them.
When I saw them last I discovered KAterina has not been wearing her reading glasses, took note of Soren's yellow looking teeth and the excessive wax coming out of his ears. I had a chat with him about those hygiene issues- and last week mailed them reminder post cards: WEAR YOUR GLASSESS
and CLEAN YOUR EARS. I guess BRUSH your teeth can be next weeks postcard.
SEE _ EVEN from Afar, as many have said, "You'll always be their mother."
In any case, it WAS relaxing to read that the good woman is SUPPOSSED to leave her candle burning all night as she is busy working preparing the meat for the family... and her maidens that help her.... SEE THE BIBLE ORDAINES WE NEED TO HIRE HOUSEHOLD HELP! Hmm.... need to take that up with Westley! Although I typically have DISHES and LAUNDRY to occupy me in the wee hours of the morn... not butchering... it still made me feel better to some extent that after the discussion of the work of the good woman up all night, that SHE WILL BE REWARDED...
