Blog Challenge - Day 4



Day 4-Your parents

My parents... where to start, without turning this into a novel. Well, here goes.

My Mom - My Mom is my best friend. She's funny, quirky, very young at heart, supportive, and loves her family so fiercely and passionately. She manages to be "together" despite having a very tangential brain (she gets along well with Brian :D). She adores my daughter in a way that even I'm not capable of. To her they are perfection. She lets me bitch and whine when I need someone to just listen to me without solving anything. She still decorates, bakes a cake and cooks us a dinner of our liking on our birthdays. She goes nuts on Christmas. She wants to make sure that everyone is completely happy. She makes even pizza for dinner into a "party". She manages to ground all of us while still encouraging us to soar. My favorite saying of my Mom's (and this will give you insight into who she is) "there are not enough days in life to celebrate so any day can be a party day".

My Dad - My Dad is my biggest supporter (other than my Mom). He is the reason I love sports. He is the wind beneath my Phillies adoring wings. I know it doesn't sound like much but he inspired in me the passion for that team that brings me so much joy. He is my escort to every Friday night high school football game. He has the driest and most quirky sense of humor that sometimes he can be completely serious but make you crack up. He is the reason I am level headed and practical. When I was in my teens and struggling with organizing myself my Dad took me aside and explained that as a teen my ONLY job was school. I needed to take it that seriously and excel. He then made me bring every single textbook I owned home EVERY SINGLE DAY until my grades went up. I thought he was so mean but I know know it was one of the most valuable lessons I have ever learned in life.

My Parents - My parents amaze most people. They have been married FOREVER. They fight fair and we learn from that. The love each other every single day... even the ones when you know they are driving each other nuts. They adore my daughters to a level that brings tears to my eyes. They raise my niece and my nephews when my sisters couldn't do it. That puts me in awe of them. They should probably be taking trips or getting ready to retire but instead my Mom spends every week day on a football, lacrosse or track field. My Dad spends his little free time running drills with the boys. What they have sacrificed for ALL of their
children is truly inspiring.

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
