Then we spent the morning with extended family for a celebration of our nephew coming home from serving a TWO YEAR mission in Mexico. I love seeing all the cousins loving to be with each other. Then we went to my moms and L and my Dad made dinner and we hung out. Being with family recharges me, usually--- right now Chickpea is like a little bomb in large groups of people, ready to fall down cement stairs or sit on babies or play in the toilet-- but when this stage is past, I get back to the "aah, it's so nice to sit and chat with the sister-in-laws while the kids play wildly, happily, for hours and hours on end."
Life is good and I need to focus on these moments and place them above any others in my mind to keep myself motivated and ready to charge forward and be the best mum I can-- just as me mum was (and still is) for me. ( my mom is British so I can say "me mum")
loads of love & corned beef xoxo heidi
