Number Four? Cheers!

I just read that Tori Spelling is expecting her fourth child!  She just gave birth to her daughter Hattie in October and is now expecting another little bundle.  Wow.  Brave woman.  Mazel Tov!  Cute family pic...

When I think of having four children under the age of 6, that seems pretty scary because I am feeling slightly overwhelmed with two under two.  Of course, I don't have a baby nurse that stays for a year and I don't have a full-time nanny.  But, while I do believe that those resources help a lot, I don't think that the pressures and worries of being a mom ever go away.  I bet that Tori and I worry about the same types of things -- whether the children are eating enough or the right things, whether there is too much television watching going on and whether we spend enough time with each of them.  I looked at Henry this morning as I was rushing around getting ready to go to work and I felt so badly that I didn't have the time to just sit and cuddle with him for a while.  There he was, sitting in his bouncy seat playing with his feet and "talking" and all I had time to do was give him a quick hug and kiss before loading him into his car seat to go to daycare.  Mornings suck.

I cannot imagine being pregnant again in the next few months...I still need to lose some of the pregnancy weight I put on with Henry and I am just now starting to be able to enjoy a cocktail now and then.  This past weekend I even sipped my first SkinnyGirl Margarita of the season!  My grocery store now stocks the entire SkinnyGirl line -- Sangria, Margarita and Cosmopolitan.  I am definitely going to sample them all this summer.  Yum!  We also taught Cam how to "cheers" with us -- his sippy cup of milk to my "wawa."

Have a great Monday!
