happy saint patrick's to everyone. cabbage and cornbeef on the counter. ...and green milk in our cups.
i am not sure when this began, growing up my mom always hid food colouring under cereal, served us dark coloured cups that had a drop of colouring in the bottom so as the milk poured from the milk jug it instantly turned green. wanting to be sure traditions last,( singing the sing from fiddler on the roof) my dad showed up today with a ziploc baggie....with a green food colouring dropper inside. ;-)
thus green milk, green cream o wheat. and a weirdly coloured cup of tea, cuz yes even milk for tea is green...
it goes with the colour of my face. morning sickness green.
every one has been so excited about baby #6 coming. kinda weird, since strangers would yell at me on the streets of D.C. for having baby #3! feminazi's would spit in disgust, "we fought for you to be in the work place, and you are pregnant????!!!" "don't you know what causes that?" blah blah blah whatever women! you fought for the OPTION of working and i opted for children. this is where i sing the praises of debbie stollers SNB. i love how she points out the way we have discouraged our daughters to do the things their mothers did, but push them to be like their fathers. i say be like mom, or in my case like my grandmama, stay pregnant thru your 20's and knit forever. at least all of my children have the same daddy. how weird is that! people actually ask me that!!! yes ,they all have the same last name, and same father and mother.
