My boobs were my tools of the trade for almost 20 months.

Once my youngest daughter weaned herself from the Magical Boob Juice, the fun really began!

(And by fun we all know I mean chaos!)

Pull up a chair, sit a while, read a few pages.

Keep and open mind and a joyful heart and you too can get pumped into the world of The Milk Maid.


Sunday Night

Just hanging out here on the couch with Jef and the laptop... Ava is asleep in her bed* and Faith is slowly becoming a prune in her tub. Today was really nice! Nothing special or out of the ordinary- I haven't even left the house today.

*When Ava is sleepy, we have helped her learn to lay down in her bed "all by herself" and go to sleep to the sounds of her under the sea bubbler music aquarium and her Winnie The Pooh Mobile. This was surprisingly easy, as I don't go for the cry it out thing. It's helped her sleep at night a lot better too... she made it to 5:30 last nite, and then went back to bed until 7am. But... More on that another day!

Today was special because:

1. I got to shower with my sweetie. Now, there was nothing sexual or kinky going on (thanks AF!). Not that the AF thing would have made a difference... we shower together a lot- or used to before Ava. I have a rather large shower with 2 shower heads, and it's just our small way of saving the environment. And I get to see "boy stuff"... I admit it, I'm a horndog. (Note to self, start a nookie ticker... it's been a MONTH Jef. Ahem!! And hint, hint!).

2. Ava was a cheerful little booger. She grabbed the cat and tried to eat him, she played with her toys on her blanket in the floor, she smiled and jabbered dahdahdahdahdahdahdah (dahdah) all day long. I'm just a little jealous that I carried this baby for 38 weeks and 6 days, had blood blistered nipples from bf-ing, gave up all (most all) of my bad habits for her, and still can't get more than 3 hours away... and her first words were still dahdah. But- why would she call for me?... I'm always there. Sigh- It's too adorable to be jealous over.

3. I painted the rest of the yellow in Faith's bathroom, and wasn't haunted by anything except a 9 year old and her constant babble. She's excellent at holding a paint can though, so she earned her keep.

4. My mother lost her cell phone, and it wasn't my fault. She tried to blame ME... but dad found it in his truck. Ha! Haha! Hahahahahahhahaaa! Yeah, I'm gloating over that one!!

5. We cleaned the kitchen. It looked like a crap-bomb went off in there. Now Faith pretends she doesn't know who's kitchen she's in.

6. I got to be with my favorite people today (other than those who require an internet connection) . My best friends live here with me. I know, that's so cliche and ookie and gooshie sounding. But it's true. My best friend is my hubster. My other best friends are my two girlies.

Life be good my peeps!

Sounds busy yet relaxing at the same time. Good for you. About that whole "it's been a month" thing. Wow! that's all I can say.

Kelly said... sweet =) I love those feelings of closeness with my family. It's in those moments that I just feel so complete. And as for "it's been a month", I can sympathize. Maybe if Doran would just sleep...
