New in Town

I know this movie is not getting great reviews , but I'll probably go see it. It's important for me to keep up the facade that I am a normal mom/lady, and therefore must force myself to see "chick flicks". I've convinced most of my friends that I don't laugh out loud, so I don't raise any brows when I sit silent during these films. But I do think I'll like this one a little more because Renee Zellweger gets a new life, and I like that idea.

14 Children!

Yesterday a woman in California gave birth to octuplets. I realize it is self destructive to marry out of college, convince yourself that you "need" two children, then spend the rest of your life asking "But what about me?". But being at peace with this genetic catastrophe is a crazy I don't wish to know.

Cozy morning surprise!

The kids got up early this morning and came into bed with us. It was so warm and and cozy with Cody and Bekka nuzzling between Brian and I. I looked at them lovingly until a swelling anxiety swept through my body. I saw the parasitic existence of their little bodies in my personal space and it made me feel like I was in a Turkish prison. I would have kicked them out if I thought that society would let me get away with such a thing. So I sat there, awake, staring at my chest of drawers, sweating due to the pressure of responsibility, until the alarm went off at 7. Then I made Swedish pancakes.
