In Case You Didn't Hear....

...I'm pregers. Beginning my 8th month this week!
I know, I know I was done having kids. That's what I tried to convince myself of anyway. My life was full and I couldn't imagine adding one more to the bunch. Really, if you knew the details of my life you seriously would have adviced to me to stay where I was....holding my head just above water. Like others I feel that raising kids is a tough job not to mention doing it well. Somedays I feel good about my job as their mom, but to be honest most days I cross my fingers and hope for the best or that at least their memories will skew toward the positive in the end. BUT, I really did think (deep down) there might be a girl out there that really wanted to come and join our imperfect family. So I did what any faith relying person does. I put it in God's hands. Deep Breath. Okay who am I kidding, I think about getting pregnant and wha la- baby appears nine months later. But, I am having a girl and like to think that that part of the story was up to God.
I didn't believe it at first even though it was confirmed by ultrasound. It took many weeks for it to settle in my brain. Mr. Frugal finally convince me that it was becoming obvious and I would make someone feel very uncomfortable if they called me out on it so we made a video of us telling the kids and the next day we shared the happy news with family and friends.

You've hidden it this whole time?! ;) Congratulations. If I could guarantee that my next baby would be a girl, I might try for one more. Who am I kidding? But OH little girls are the sweetest.

best of luck and thanks for blogging again. You've got GREAT things to share and I love reading them

Sorry for contacting you through your comments section but I couldn't find an email address on your blog. I'm contacting you because I'm trying to get the word out about my new site:

Mommy Giggles is a site where moms submit funny pictures to share with other moms to get a giggle out of. They can either be pictures of their kids or of other hilarious “mommy moments”

I am contacting you to see if you have a funny picture that I could post – we would of course give you the credit, and also post your blog (if you want). There is also a $25 Amazon Gift card drawing to everyone who submits a photo each month.

I would also appreciate if you could spread the word about Mommy Giggles to other moms too!

Hope you will get a “giggle” out of the site.

Warmest Regards,

Heather Matthews
