I often refer to myself as this OLD MOTHER HEN because I am an older mother. I'm 42...not that that's really old but some days it sure feels like it! I'm still not sure if the kids keep me young or making me old faster with all the running around I do with them & for them.
We thought our family was complete with the two older kids and living life merrily everyday. Happy 40th Birthday to me! I'm pregnant! You see...our first two "bugs" are adopted from Guatemala. After years of infertility & treaments, we chose the adoption route to start our family when doctors finally said there is nothing more we can do for you. Well we have all heard the stories of couples who start their families through adoption and then awhile later finding themselves pregnant. NEVER NEVER in a million years did we ever think that would happen to us.
So Doodlebug was born in March 2008. He just turned 2. Add I might add that the "terrible 2's" have officially begun. More on that later.
I have pet names for my kids...I call my 7 1/2 yr old son LOVEBUG. My 5 1/2 year old daughter is LADYBUG. And my 2 year old baby boy is DOODLEBUG. There you have it...MOMSLOVEBUGS. Photos are coming!!! I promise.
