Confession Friday

I confess I have been listening to the same 6 cds in my car for the last year and a half. I am really annoyed with those cds now but I am too lazy to change them to new ones.

I confess I had preconceived notions of what our family should look like. I don't know where they came from but I have let them go.

I confess I put all the adoption books on bonding and attachment away. In the basement...and I won't look at them for a while so that we can go back to parenting by instinct.

I confess this week has been a better because we did the above.

I confess I had a beer Sunday night at our family supper and it tasted GOOD!

I confess we went for Ethiopian food last Saturday night with the wee one and some very good friends. A good time was had by all! Wee one ate his face off...and he was so good in the restaurant. Yay!

I confess the wee one's tummy is getting better....all the parasites have left the building with the exception of Giardia and the meds have been started and it is already getting better! Double yay!

I confess spring seemed to be springing and then it snowed two nights ago! Sheesh! Enough already!

I confess feeding 8 toddlers icing sugar (on top of mini-muffins) for snack at playgroup is hilarious....insanity ensues! (it wasn't me but ha ha ha it was funny!)

I confess wee one and I are starting to become quite the team...and we are having fun!

I confess Yvan is the best husband in the universe!!!! I love him lots and so does the wee one!

I confess I am hosting a "Girls' Night In" tonight for a bunch of Mommas and Momma-to-bes and I am looking forward to a good gab session and some good eats!!!

I confess I am getting the itch to build a new house and THAT my friends made Yvan VERY happy!

I confess I am outta here to enjoy the weekend with my family!!!!

Sounds like you are finding your Momma Grove! :) I would love to see what kind of house you would build! You guys have beautiful taste. My biggest house/parenting tip - leave the basement unfinished. With our winter's you need an unfinished basement that converts to an indoor playground for the winter!

Lovely confession, I'll just pop on over for that Momma night, shall I?

Sigh...wouldn't that be nice. I could use that right now.

Good for you, for putting the books away. When I get stumped on something, I pull them out and read the relevant section. :) But that's it!

I love the fact that you are feeling happier again. I'm glad you're putting the books and preconceived notions aside. I think as adoptive moms we can sometimes be hypervigilant and I think it's unhealthy. So good for you for simply being a mom.

And the idea of a Moms Night In sounds wonderful. I need to find something like that.

This is my favorite confession yet! It feels good when you start to find our mommy groove. Have a great weekend!

Have a great weekend!

I'm excited about what your family is looking like. Healing together takes time and the happy moments are what keep you focused on moving forward. I think putting the books away is a wise idea- from someone who also did that... And the idea of you being parasite free already makes me jealous. Very jealous. But 2011 is the year to get rid of those buggers!

Wish I lived closer!!(although I guess I'm assuming I would have been invited) Glad to see your listening to your's the best way!
