7 Quick Takes :)


I had my six week postpartum appointment today!  Woot woot!  Wanna hear something weird? I always dread this appointment because I have to 'the conversation' where I re-explain to my obgyn artificial birth control is just not in the cards for us.  But guess what?  Today, when I told her, she said I was the fourth client she has had in the last two days who refused an artificial plan for spacing children.  Crazy huh?  Maybe some of the dangers of some of the current fads of contracepting are becoming clearer to the masses?  cool stuff.
Funny story. This is my new favorite outfit. 
The husband hates it, he calls it my sister wife look. Anyway, I wore it to the seminary for a meeting I had on Monday. When I stopped in the bathroom, I decided I loved the outfit so much because it made me look like a nun (no wonder the husband doesn't love it). Then I took my first ever bathroom selfie so I could show my blog friends my new favorite outfit. My intent was to put it in quick takes and reflect on how there is something about religious life that is so attractive to me :) But this next part is where life gets awesome. My friend Mario, who I had lunch with at the seminary, said the next day, wait for it....one of his seminarian brothers asked what order I was in!!!! SCORE!
My dad rocked my world the other day. While talking politics and education, he remarked what a shame it was that kids are not taught the full value of our US Constitution. He went on to say that our forefathers were very well aware government naturally lends itself to tyranny. To fight against that progression, they carefully crafted this living document. When we begin to throw out principals of our Constitution or disregard them, or twist them... we become less safe in protecting ourselves from our government.   I know, I know, duh....but the way he said it was awesome, and timely, in light of certain mandates :)
Cute kid alert! When something bad happens, lil' A now says, "I'm so sorry" with a sad and empathetic voice. Are you kidding me?  Then, Joey mike is honestly the best snuggler, out of any snuggler there ever was! And my John Paul, well, he is nothing but cute.  Life is good in the land of boys.

The best snuggler in the whole world of snuggling!
John Paul decided not to nap yesterday, and in case you are wondering, it reminded me why naps are ESSENTIAL to a SAHM with three's mental. Stability.
Can someone explain why I hate putting laundry away? Seriously. The washing? I'm good with! The drying? I rock at! The folding? Ain't no thang, I find it weirdly satisfying.,,but the putting away!? I hate hate hate. That's my story, I'm sticking to it.
Guess what came in the mail today?!?!  OUR WEDDING PHOTO ALBUM.  Sure, it might be three years after the wedding, and three kids later, but dang, did it ever make me smile :)

  1. Just wait, Mary. Once the kids reach 5 years old, they can put away their own laundry pile. It's amazing.

  3. Hahahahahaha! Seriously laughing out loud here about your habit! You totally look like a nun.

    And I love your dad. Do you know you were the one (and him through you, I suppose) who was the first person who made me realize that it was okay to be patriotic? Seriously. And now look at me and my tea partying ways. I thought you should know. Your fault.
