I really enjoyed going to my Mom's on Easter weekend. I was actually homesick. We've lived here in Tennessee for three years and this is the first time that I have experienced the actual homesickness. I just wanted my Mommy...boohoo. It was really good for me though. I was still dealing with the tail end of the Mommy blues and it was refreshing to do something different. I'm so much better than I was the first week I came home from the hospital. Now I don't cry about everything, just little things and that happens mostly when I'm exhausted. So I'm getting there. I have so much compassion for those other Mom's who experience post partum and have it worst than me. And anyone who loosely condemns women and post partum should be ashamed of themselves. It is real, it's a horrible feeling and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. So enough about that, here's some Easter pics and other random photos from our weekend.
Alex on Easter morning checking out his basket, he got jipped, the Easter Bunny only left one piece of candy and the rest were toys. Thanks Easter Bunny for that!
Matt got the sniffles while we were there so here's his "I'm pitiful" expression
Bethany striking a pose?
And I might add that Matt, Amber & Bethany's Daddy actually called and wanted to take them to lunch while we were visiting. And much to my surprise he showed up on Saturday, 40 minutes late, but he still showed up. Matt was telling me on the way home that it was nice seeing him but it felt really awkward because he hadn't saw him in such a long time. He said that it didn't even feel like he was his Dad anymore. That broke my heart, maybe because I'm still hormonal, but kids need both parents.
