But I Don’t Want To!

Megan is my third daughter.  She is a daddy’s girl through and through and an angel from God.  She is fun loving, serious, demanding, and amazing!  We can not imagine our lives without her!

And she has the most beautiful hair!  She is the only one of our girls to be born with hair.  Both Katie and Sarah were bald and didn’t really even start growing their hair until after age 2.  Megan is 18 months and has enough hair to make pig tails and even braid in places if I want.  She has beautiful soft curls that stick out and remind me of the Gerber baby.

I can not bring myself to cut it.  I just can’t.  And, to be honest, I don’t want to!  But the pressure is starting from my husband, the hairdressers, and other outside sources.  Yes, I know it falls in her face.  Yes, I know it is messy a lot.  Yes, I know I am being slightly unreasonable.  But…


So there!  LOL

That is MRS. Procrastinator to YOU!

It has been kind of a rough week for me, as I know you have all read about faithfully, right?!?

So I am not really feeling the thrill in my day to day job.  I don’t really care that the floor needs mopping for the 5th time today.  I am not really concerned that the clean laundry has been piled on my couch for two days, in fact, I think I will see just how tall I can make that mountain until it tumbles under the weight of itself.  If it fell on my unvaccuumed rug, it would really be icing.

I think take out is a fine dinner for a man who eats take out every day.  After all, he knows where the good ones are, right?  And if he could get some fries for the kids, I’ll make up for it by feeding them only carrots next week.

Yes, I am a procrastinator this week.  And from the looks of my house, I am really very, very, good at it!  I think I have earned the right to say, “That is MRS. Procrastiator to YOU!”

Heavy Hearts

It is with a very heavy heart that I report that my Grandma, whom I posted about in “Just a Girl” on Tuesday (https://www.adayinmotherhood.com/2010/12/just-girl.html), has already taken a turn for the worse.  She is expected to make it another few weeks, if that.  I thank you all, from the bottom of my heart, for your kind words and prayers.  It is a time like this when I learn that social media has faces and hearts behind it that belong to truly genuine and special people.

I also want to let you know that I have decided that we are within days of putting my 11 year old dog, Ali, down.  I have had such a hard time getting her to eat and though today, right after I decided to do it, she ate an entire bowl of chicken and rolled around on the rug like a puppy, I know in my heart that she is starting to look like she is in pain.  I will keep you updated but will aim at making a decision Monday.  Again, I am deeply humbled to have such amazing people “out there” holding my hand through it all.

God Bless You All.
