dare we say more like a little girly girl?
Thursday was also Mason's Thanksgiving feast at school. Since his school is the lab school for the University. They had their "Feast" at the cafeteria on campus. Have I said how much I LOVE that he is on campus? The kids were so cute! I just love seeing him with his little friends. He loves his teacher Mrs. Roberson. Karen (Roberson) and I were friends in college and she also knew Matt in High School. She often tells me that she sees "a lot of Mason's Daddy in Mason"...go figure! Does she know Matt or what? She gets a kick out of him. This is Mason and Mrs. Roberson.
So at noon on Thursday, I'm thinking "Wow, what a great day this is!" I was also looking forward to Friday. Since the local High School made the playoffs (we take our football serious in the South) Mason's school had the day off. So Mason and I were planning to go see the baby fox (that's not so much a baby anymore) he found back in the Spring in our back yard. The Zoo had adopted him as part of their educational division and they told us that we could come see him anytime. Mason couldn't wait to go see him! This is a pic of him the day Mason found him.And then I got the phone call! Ms. Misty, Marleigh's "teacher" called and said that she had fever. By the time I got her to the doctor's office, it was 104. We gave her a tepid bath and did blood tests, flu tests, RSV test and a chest xray. We found out that she has Pnuemonia. We got a shot that afternoon and the following morning. Today, Saturday, she is doing much better. We are continuing antibiotics and breathing treatments but we feel that we really dodged a bullet. She's a tough little girl! Her big brother has been doing a great job entertaining her...after all...he has his own private audience!
Needless to say, the Zoo trip has been postponed...we hope to go next week! We'll post pics of "our" baby fox!

In my last post I lamented over being a working mom. I know that if it weren't for my husband, I couldn't be the working mom that I am. My children are my life, and their daddy is the love of my life.

I often wonder if it all stems from that decision to be a working mom? My mom worked from home but she was for all practical purposes a stay-at-home mom. She could schedule around any ball game, school activity, sleepover that I had...and usually did. Is this what I am experiencing. The guilt of not being able to do the same for my children? Are the weekends just not enough time to enjoy being a mom. Do their needs not get met. I often feel like I don't know how to be a working mom. That I expect to be able to do for my children the way I was "done for." Is it realistic. Probably not. Is it something I will ever stop striving to be? Absolutely not.

"I should do this." I also thought "You can't make some of this stuff up that goes on in this house so LET'S share the comedic experiences!" (I AM A GLUTTON FOR PUNISHMENT!) So this is the first blog entry...yes, it is also a sleepless night, induced by a migraine treated with Excedrine which has caffeine...and yep, you guessed it...keeps me awake! So, I'm not publishing this until the morning to make sure that I am not hallucinating! Let's start off with a pic of our family...
