It's been a long time since I've posted anything on my page but the last weeks
have proved that this is an appropriate title for my page.
beat dad issues," and other family member issues raising six and seven kids
seems to be a breeze. But I do believe this life is a journey, and we are
constantly learning on this journey, and I'm definitely learning this week.
Don't know if you know, but not only do I have seven kids, I'm one of seven
kids. I've always treated my youngest siblings more like children then siblings
and loved them as such, but maybe that's where I went wrong.
... Now that me and my youngest sister are not getting
along, I kind of feel like a mother who has lost her child. Of course I won't
get into the details, but at this point I'm so upset I will say that it's
because I don't get along with her husband.
I watch this on Dr. Phil, all
the time, where parents don't like their child's spouse, but I have to learn
that it's not for me to like him, it's her that has to like him. And I'm okay
with that. So it's time that I cut the cord. My sister is not my child, she's
grown and can do what she wants. But I can't watch, and don't want to. I'm
sure at this point she's okay with that too.
It's sad when you feel like
you loose a family member, or in my case when it feels like someone has snatched
them away. Just because he wanted a family, he had to come and snatch mine
away, but I digress. The situation really sucks, and I hope that in time, me
and my sister will be okay. But I do know that we can both be very stubborn.
So I will just say to my sister who I loved like a child her whole life,
"Love you, and always will!" But for now, it will be from afar.
Hey all, been missing everyone, I've been so busy I haven't had
time to post, but my nerves are so bad, I've been needing to.
lots of things going on, I've been baking cupcakes, became a Mary Kay
consultant, and finally got Mason out of our bed!!! Woopee! So this is how it
happen. Last Saturday, Bobby and I were in desperate need for some private
time, but every few minutes someone was knocking on the door. So finally we
said that's it! "Mason, you're going to have to sleep in your own bed!" Oh my
gosh, he screamed and cried. Bobby and I stayed in his room to try to get him
to stay. We watched Spiderman and his amazing Friends and X-men while we sat in
there. Finally around 1:45 he fell asleep, and we went to bed. He got up a
couple of hours later and we m...ade him sleep on the couch in our room. The next day
and since then, he's been laying on his spiderman couch next to my side of the
bed. He gets up every couple of hours, trying to scoot up next to me, but I've
been standing strong and not letting him in. Hopefully we can get him out of
our room completely soon, but we're taking baby steps. I can't tell you though,
how nice it is to sleep in the bed with only one baby instead of three. Malachi
hasn't been in our bed either. He comes in and gets on our couch but at least
it's not in our bed. So now, it's just me, Bobby and Max, which gives us a lot
As far as being a Mary Kay consultant, I'm really excited
about that too. I started using the skin care again, and my skin is looking so
much better. They have this lip mask that I've been using, and I don't even
need chapstick anymore. I'm not going to say much about Mary Kay right now, but
everyone keep it on your mind, because I'll be getting to you about it
My cupcakes are coming along too. Once I get that going
good, I'll let you all know what's so special about them.
won't stay along too long next time. Tomorrow I have to go talk to an after
school teacher who hasn't been very nice to Malachi. I've already talked to the
head teacher, but nothing has changed so I'll let you all know how that goes.
Whooo, I tell you, a mother's work is never gone. Talk to you all
I am a wife, mother of seven and a lawyer. The life I live is a crazy one, but I love it and wouldn't trade it for the world. I hope what I share can be an inspiration to others, but I will settle for it just giving someone a good laugh!
