Happy Mother's Day to All You Wonder Women


I, for one, am awfully proud of myself for making it through a whole week as a mother of 3, and I only cried 28 times. Wow! Instead of Mother's Day, I feel like celebrating Referee Day, because I've been doing a lot of whistle blowing and calling of fouls among siblings. Funny... Zinabu is doing fantastic. It's the rest of us that are trying to adjust to him. Carver and Lily are justifiably put out by Zinabu being 3 and into everything. About half the time they love him, and the other half they are far, far away from him. I reassure them we all just need some time to get to know one another. And I reassure them it will be a whole lot easier when Zinabu is more fluent in English. Zinabu is eating us out of house and home. He eats as much as Lily and Carver put together. I don't know how he does it. His favorite food right now is oranges, and he would eat 5 a day if I let him. He's better about letting me take clothes/layers off of him if it gets too hot, but he's REALLY attached to his bike helmet and he wears it constantly. I promise to post a picture of him in it. I've been too busy being mom to really spend time taking pictures. The house is a MESS, but I am doing my best giving time and love to my kids...and for now that's the way it's supposed to be.
