Year of the Mom.

Ok, so I tried to write this post once before, but it became about the kids and the family. As things are wont to do when you're a Mom. But this time. This time, it's about Mom. Sort-of.

The year 2009 will be 'The Year of the Mom'. Really. (Well, I'm hoping.) I mean, what's more mom-like than having kids? As those of you who follow my tweets know, we've been trying to get pregnant again for the last several months. Yesterday was another let down.

But I've decided to take it in stride. Clearly, the universe is telling me I am not prepared for another baby. So, I cooked one hundred Southwest Eggrolls for the freezer. I added it to my twelve loaves of French Bread and three meals of Italian Beef. Next week I will make enough Green Bean Chicken Casserole and Spinach Artichoke Dip to feed the Duggars. Because, not having to worry about dinner is about the best gift you can give a Mom. So, I'm gifting it to myself. Thank you, Self.


By the way, Self? If I'm prepared by next month, may I have another baby?

Oh yeh. And I'm going to paint my toenails at least once a week. Because painted toenails are awesome and they make me feel pretty.

p.s. Remember how I said you could win one of my scarves?

p.p.s. Don't forget to check in on Monday, so you can enter to win an Aromatherapy Kit. (Talk about taking good care of yourself!)

If your freezer's full... there's plenty of room in mine! Keep on trying. Practice makes perfect, right?

Cheers to that!

Sounds like a wonderful year to me... and that freezer... oh that sounds pretty wonderful as well!!!! It'll be a great year, and maybe we'll both be a mom, again.

Amazing pictures through out your entire blog! What kind of camera do you use?

April said...

@ anonymous: Thanks! I usually use the Sony Cybershot, but some (including the one in this post) were taken with my sister's Canon Rebel. Both cameras are listed in the right column of my blog if you're interested!

April, sending you baby vibes! I've been there, so I know it's hard. I checked out the recipe.......wowza 100 of those little suckers, you are industrious! The sound good!

Jen said...

holy crap that is a lot of food. are you expecting something bad or just love to have a freezer full.
I think that year of the mom is a great idea. I really need to take some time for myself.

JennaDee said...

Aww I had no idea you were trying for another one! I'm sorry that this was a let down. It will happen. :) Believe me it will. It took Cole and I... a while.

You want another baby???

Expat Mom said...

Sending you my terribly fertile vibes (pregnant 5 times in 3 years!). Good luck. I have to say, though, I have two boys that are about the same difference in age as yours and they just run me into the ground! I`m in awe of your energy. :)

April - give yourself a break cos your littlest dude is still very little. It'll happen when you least expect it. All my kids were unexpected blessings but I was back to work etc when I fell preggers for the 3rd time. There is a 2.5 year gap between by two oldest (natural breastfeeding gap) but a jump of 5 years between the 2 boys which probably was a bit much but it gave me time with the other two and they were also independent by the time I had no. 3. So relax enjoy and it will happen again.

Reading your blog not only makes me hungry, but I'm pretty sure my kids are somewhere drooling too.
