Okay first things first, my youngest child was born 17 years ago this morning. Out of all the kids his was the easiest (birth). By the time he came around I was a veteran. I had a caesarean and was up and walking that afternoon. The cry-baby in the bed next to me was screaming about her freaking episiotomy. I can’t tell you how much I just wanted to smack the crap out of her. To get some sleep I left the hospital the next day against my doctor’s orders. It was either that or go to jail for murder.
It is true that the baby gets, well, babied. What can I say? William is the light of my life, right next to his brother and sisters. I couldn’t imagine life without any of them, but I do fantasize about them living out on their own. Two down and two to go. 🙂
As far as my latest obsession it is my iPod. I can walk for miles with Def Leppard thundering in my ears. It’s amazing. I finally had to force myself to leave the iTunes store last night. My friend Josie has been upset I haven’t read her latest book IMPOSSIBLY TONGUE TIED (hey, it got stashed with all the other stuff in my house during the holidays, I dug it out yesterday), so I cracked that baby open at about ten last night and stayed up until almost 4:30 this a.m. reading it. Good stuff people. Josie is such a fab wordsmith. Her flair for pop-culture-lit amazes me. Go buy her book.
I now must hasten my butt to the store. Birthday boy wants rack of lamb for dinner. 🙂 Yum, no hardship there.
Okay just had to share. Write on chicas!! 2007 is the year!
Oh just incase you were wondering what is playing on my iPod right now, it’s SAY IT, by yummilicious Enrique Iglesias. Did I mention Ricoo Mazza, a mucho caliente Latino cop in my current wip? Spicy hot hot hot, ladies.
