wee bit of random

Happy Birthday Shalagh!!! I hope you eat lots of cake and get wonderful gifts. I love you to pieces and still miss you always.

So Brent's mom is home from the hospital and doing well, she had an angioplasty and a stent put in her heart, hopefully that will prevent any more angina. Thank you so much for your prayers and care. I think we are feeling a bit less stressed here. In fact I actually feel rested this morning, I got a bit more sleep than I have been! I let myself stay in bed until I was ready to get up, so nice.

We took the kids to a free preview of Bolt on the weekend, it was so cute. And free is definitely the way to go to the movies when you have 5 kids! We still spent 25 bucks on treats! It must be free week, because my kids are going to a choral performance on Wednesday that includes an educational time with the performers and free pizza! mmm pizza...

I can't believe how Baby Zed is changing! He can be so sweet and sunny, laughing at mommy, taking a wee nursing break to smile up at mommy. Aw, just reaches in and pulls on my heart. He, thankfully, started taking a soother last week, so he isn't suckling all night. My poor back is much happier.

The Boy, my eldest, turns 14 tomorrow. I have to say, this having a boy in the midst of his growth spurt is so much like having a baby. The changes and growth happen so quickly that it is overwhelming to my mommy heart. I revel in each milestone on the road to manhood, while mourning the little boy he is quickly ceasing to be. He can get his learner's driving permit tomorrow! Yikes!

Someone pass me a tissue so that I don't get tears into the birthday cake I need to go make...

  1. Awww! Fourteen is so pivotal! My Oatmeal Head grew at least six inches between thirteen and fourteen. But at fourteen? All about emotional changes. Hormonal changes. He's becoming a man. I love it. :) And a driver's permit already? Ack!!

  7. Lots going on! So glad your mother in law is doing better, and Happy Birthday! Who will do the driving lessons? My dad, who later became a driver's ed teacher, couldn't teach me. He kept making me cry, so my mom had to. He says that's why I drive like a crazy person.
