Guest Post by Daughter

Life sucks! And the thought of moving on to 5th grade isn't helping.  Luckily, I have 4 siblings that help me in different and better ways.  Joey the oldest boy helps me get down and dirty and let my creative side shine. Marysa, the oldest of all the kids, can help me with my girl problems.  Then there's Sonny, the second-to-youngest. He helps me feel responsible ('cause I watch him all the time) and that someone always loves me.  Last but not least, Declan. He teaches me how fun life can be if you just go with the flow.

When I first thought about the 5th grade, I was scared even. But then I realized I have totally Awesome brothers and sisters to help me. I love my family so much, and I hope you people out there have a family just as great as mine.

To all my lovely readers

Happy summer. I can't keep apologizing for my irregular post. My guess is most of you are enjoying summer. I have been off on disability for my back. My older kids have been out of school since last week. We joined the YMCA where I have been swimming daily or at least sitting sitting in filtered shade at the advice of my Spine Doctor. So far not much improvement but good things come to those to wait. My kids are loving it. I have been looming in the morning since I can while laying on my back. Lots of hats, baby blankets, scarves and purses to come to my Etsy shop if you want to see. Some sewing machine sewing, those projects take little longer since sitting is no fun. I am hoping to post some bags and sun hats to celebrate summer.

As far as the kids.......... Tanner, Marysa and Joey have been crafting key chains, friendship bracelets, and soap. Sonny and Declan are still going to daycare since watching them all day makes my pain increase and they have more fun with all the kids.

For your silly steak... Here are some great pics of table dancing before table dancing is not so cute.

Oh and one more thing. E-mail me your breastfeeding stories. I'd like my contributions to combat  the bad press Mama's have been getting for nursing their babies in public to be my blog All of July!!!! I'll be posting as many as I can,telling my own stories and a Shout Out/Giveaway  to a really cool Lactavist inspired shop Mama Pear Designs. I can't wait.

Thanks again for being a friend. I can't wait to hear from all of you.
