I know, I know…One Beer Mom is not a typical ‘mom blog’ title. I am also not the typical mom to some!
I recently spent the weekend in Washington DC for a close friend’s wedding. I was the only one with kids hanging out the night before and I was asked ‘How do you make it work?’ That’s really not an easy answer. For one: there’s really no way to NOT make it work in my mind. My husband and I chose to have children and I am unimaginably happy about that. BUT, I did realize the other night, after doing some difficult work, I was sitting down with my MIL and having a beer. Capri (my youngest), climbed up on a slide (maybe about 3-feet off the ground). My instinct was to run over there and hold her hand while she went down. The one beer (or maybe a half at this point) helped me to control this urge and I saw that Capri was completely capable of going down the slide by herself. She was so proud when we clapped and hooray-ed her accomplishment.
So, I may not raise my kids to the same standard as the rest of this society but so far things are working out. I’m going to be telling the stories and drama’s of the life of an apple farmer, stay at home mom/apple orchardist/entrepreneur/etc. and our three kids… Cedi – (born:11/29/06), Capri (born: 2/24/08), and Persimoni (‘Pip’ born: 4/28/11) on this blog.
If you look close there is actually a beer in the left pocket of this dress!
I hope you decide to come back often and see where this crazy, busy, amazing life takes my family!
Awesome! I'm so excited to get to read about the girls more frequently!
Nice with the beer in the pocket;) I love it;)
