Welcome to yet another kickoff of ICLW! I read Kym's blog today and I saw she did a little introduction using the ABCs. So I am totally stealing her idea.
Allison is the name of my middle child, now 3 1/2 years old.
Ballerinas is what my girls like to play dress up as.
Children are the highlight of my life. I wish I started earlier so I could have more, but then again, I'm glad I waited and did everything I did in life before having children. For me, the timing works.
Double blogger - I have two blogs and I am participating in March ICLW for both of them. This means I'll be leaving double the comments and writing double the posts. I am doing the ABCs for both blogs and there will be some double information, but this will be the only post that won't be different from one another.
Ella is the name of my oldest daughter. She will be turning 5 years old next month.
Fuck is my favoritist word and I use it. A lot. Even in front of the kids. But my kids know it's a bad word and they don't say it themselves. I see the world we live in today and it's not a word they won't hear. I'll protect them from a lot of things in this world, but cursing isn't something I think I need to spend my time protecting them from.
Grover is my favorite muppet. I still have my stuffed animal from my childhood and now it's one of the many stuffed animals my girls have.
Heaven is a nice concept, but I don't believe in it. I wish I did, as it would make dying a less scary thing, but it's just something I can't fit into my head.
Infertility is something I have dealt with, but was lucky enough to be able to put it in my past. Although it'll never be something I forget as it's definitely still a part of me, I count my blessings everyday as it's something no longer running my life as it had for so many years. There are a lot of girls who tell me I'm not infertile because I have had 3 children, but I think all the fertility shit I went through counts as membership to the IF club. The club I wish no one ever had to be a member of. My TTC history and my fight with infertility is listed on my other blog - thenewlifeofnancy.
Jesus is not my co-pilot. But this does not mean I am not spiritual. I do believe in a higher power, but I just don't think anyone has, or even can, define it. I'm stuggling right now as to how I am going to go about bringing religion into my children's life. How can you question something you are never made to think about?
Karl is the name of my youngest child, who is 10 weeks old today. He is my last baby.
Love. I think it's the most important thing to open your heart for. Don't be scared of it.
Marriage. I waited until I was 28 to get married. I was engaged at 21, but it was to a different boy. I'm really glad I agreed to a long engagement when I was too young to get married (in my opinion) because I was a different person back then.
Nancy is my name and I go through periods where I do not like it.
Opportunity doesn't only knock once. I believe life if what you make of it - and you can change it around whenever you choose.
Punk rock is my favorite type of music.
Quiet is something that my house is ~not~ and probably will never be - at least while I have 3 kids in the house.
Roller derby is the sport I am active in.
Sterile is what I am. I went through the "Essure" procedure which I had the doctor thread wires up my fallopian tubes which scars them from the inside.
Tom is my hubby's name. We've been married for almost 8 years.
Umbrellas are things my girls simply love. I think they have 2 or 3 each.
Vagina is what I was going to use when talking about body parts to my children. I have yet to use it with them, although all other words are used correctly.
Wonderful is how I would describe my life. It's not perfect and there are problems all around, but the good definitely outweighs the bad.
Xray vision is something I do ~not~ possess.
Yellow doesn't look good on me. I'm naturally blonde and I'm very fair skinned so many of the shades of yellow just wash me out. Sometimes I can find a good shade I can wear though.
Zebra is an animal my friend Pete saw running down the side of the freeway. Apparently it had escaped from the circus.
I hope to get to know some new people this month!
