The W Family Chronicles

Me, a mom? Even 4+ years later, I’m surprised.

Posted on: March 7, 2007

As I was giving the kids their first bath together (D is at the new house, he’s usually on bath duty and does them separately while I deal with whichever one is not in the tub) I was thinking how strange it is that *I’m* now a mom, making decisions that will forever shape these children’s lives. Such an awesome responsibility…and I mean awesome in the purest sense of the word, not the 14 year old way of saying something’s wicked cool.


I know I’ve screwed things up, I know I’m not a perfect mom. But somehow J has turned into an amazingly smart, well adjusted 4 year old. And C’s head hasn’t fallen off, despite the fact that he’s still breastfed and sleeping in our bed. *gasp* They’re both happy and healthy and I enjoy them so much, as does D. We are incredibly blessed by their presence in our lives!

D is the dad, the husband, and the breadwinner. All around nice guy and good at pretty much everything he does. It's disgusting, really. But makes him worth keeping around.

M is the mom, the wife, and the hopeless housekeeper. At least the kids' heads haven't fallen off yet. Beyond that, she sucks at the "stay at home" thing. Oh, and she's the blogger.

J is the big boy. Born October 11 2002, he is in kindergarten and loves it. Now 6 years old, and too smart for his own good. Talks a lot but extremely entertaining.

C is the little boy. Born June 26, 2006, he went through a lot in his first year but is doing just fine now. The only blond in the family, so his paternity is routinely questioned by rude strangers.

V is our baby girl. She is brand new and arrived in January 2009. So far everything is going well. We're thrilled to have added the final piece to our family puzzle. And yes, she WILL be the final piece!
