The W Family Chronicles

5 years ago, I was a house!

Posted on: October 10, 2007


So this is what I looked like 5 years ago today. Sorry it’s a bad pic and an even worse scan, but you get the idea. This was after D came home from work and I told him to go on back because I was NOT going to the hospital to be induced. (We were supposed to be there at a certain time and he’d left work early so we could be there.) I’d been crying minutes before he took this picture. I was a week overdue, it was still hot (much like this year…we were in the 90s yesterday!) and I was really *done* but so terrified for what was to come. As it turned out I never really went into labor and had a c-section when he went into distress.

I cannot believe how long it’s been. Seems like this was only yesterday. And tomorrow my little boy will be 5. This is a hard birthday for me…I feel like 5 is the line between little boyhood and big boyhood. It’s (typically) when they start school, and it feels like a milestone in so many ways. It’s such a cliche, but time really does fly.

W Family Players

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!
