Ok, I'm going to actually hope to post something with replies this morning. I've read up from the last couple of days, anyway... no hopes of completely catching up with you chatty Mamas!
Laura, there is no smilie to adequately show how envious I am! Geez, the Farm Sanctuary! I'd so love to go. Have a blast and enjoy all of the delicious veggie food! sigh.... not much luck of finding anything like that around here! :LOL You know, I didn't even realize you are Veg until a couple of weeks ago. Cool! That's amazing that Megan's birthday is coming up.... where does a year go?!?!
Pam, the teaparty theme sounds great! I'll bet A will love it. You sound really refreshed
Wow, can't believe that G is able to stand for a bit unassisted already!!! That girl's got BIG plans!
Jeni, hope the family reunion is fun... or at least bearable!
Sorry about the relationship stuff. I find it so hard when communication breaks down. I hope all is mended today and that you have a chance to reconnect. Geez, it's hard to find time to talk openly when you have little ones with BIG ears, isn't it? I've missed that your boys are sick...
Good to hear that Noam's feeling a bit better, and I hope it passes you all quickly!
Nicole, happy early birthday to Emily! Welcome to 3!
Wow, seems like a lot of us have older ones within a month or two in age, huh? Thanks for the hugs for Tess. She's gotten over Auntie being gone, I think.... now it's me missing my coffee sippin' partner.
Joyce, sounds like it's busy over there! With 2 little babes, how could it be any different hey? Sounds like you met a great Mama at the co-op! I miss that about Toronto. There were a few spots where you could almost be guaranteed to meet a crunchy one or two. Are you going to hook up with her? (hee hee, sounds like we're in the singles scene again!)
Jessi, poor Evelyn!!!! I'll be looking for your update on how she's doing! Loads of
to all of you!
on the tandem issues. Oh, that has got to be so tough.... and I just have to say (again!) how much I admire you. Your babes are so lucky to have such an amazing Mama. Keep good care of you too, though!! No good to anyone if you waste away
Seriously though, do you get a bit of a break now and then? You seem so chipper and upbeat, and I sure hope you get a chance to breathe and walk on the beach now and then.
Sherri, ugh. Sorry about the ongoing mom & housing woes. You must be BEYOND ready for all of this to be settled!
CSA - I've seen that mentioned in the Good Eatin' forum and always wondered what that meant but kept forgetting to ask. I'll have to look and see what we have in our area (although I guess for this year we might be late?? Never know in the South)
Other Mamas - It all depends. I have some female (and Mommy) friends that are like sisters to me. Seriously, in many ways they are my family. Two I've known since our pre-baby days, and one I met when Tess was about Brynn's age. I get annoyed by "cattiness" of some women, and the competitiveness and judgments. I am really laid back and tend to get along really well with guys, and am not at all into the shopping-makeup-gossip-spa day kind of life that so many women seem to love. Still, the women that I've connected to are so important to me. I don't do well with the playground crew though - couldn't care less about most of what they talk about and they think I'm a hippy-freak anyway. Give me a woman with a critical mind and a wicked sense of humor!
Tess needs a bit of Mama time, so I'll head off for a bit. Sorry to anyone I missed - - Lisa, Michelle, Aviva hello!!
