My Cup Spilleth Over

Zsuzsanna invited us for tea as a Mother's Day event.  I love it and really loved the message they had for 15 minutes before tea.  I'm extremely traditional and really do strive to be a Proverbs 31 woman.  Right now I'm more like a wanna be Proverbs 31 woman but I really try.  The only thing I'm not traditional about is having babies as they come.  I would have 50 kids probably.  Let me see.... I can calculate it.  If I started when I was married with no birth control and I'm 31 now.  Hmmm... That would be about 13 kids.  Do you think I'm joking?  I get pregnant EVEN when I nurse.  The doctor said I am one of the most fertile people she has ever met. That's how I had Chaz and Ryan at 12 months apart AND I was nursing Chaz.  

Don't get me wrong, I actually envy the families that have kids as they come.  I think it's FANTASTIC.  I think what scares me is that my kids have coffee running through their blood.  If they ever sit still for long it's because they are sick.  "Oh, honey, Kyle hasn't moved for 10 minutes.  We should check his temperature."  I have crazy hyper kids.  A lot like Cheaper by the Dozen movie.  Good kids.  Just tons of energy and pranks to go around.  Sigh.  I love my family like crazy. :D  I'm just afraid to make an army and be way outnumbered.

Back to the tea party.  We had so much fun and my girls loved sitting with the other little girls and drinking tea.  It was such a special day and I love Zsuzsanna and her family like crazy.  

It definitely was interesting with it being all girls.  Before the tea party I was trying to think about what to wear.  I figured I'd just go with something light and flowy.  Szuszanna doesn't know I'm a huge tea person and have visited many a tea places.  Never for big groups though where they serve you the whole time you're there so it was a treat.

I may not have kids as they come but that doesn't stop me from cuddling little ones I find around me.  Tee hee.... 

Is it just me or does it feel less naughty eating so many goodies when they are sliced into small amounts?  "Ohhhh, these are so little.  If I put 30 of them together, it'll probably equal a whole one"  Ahem.

All of us ladies.  We mainly had the kid table so we had the pleasure sipping tea with female munchkins and teach them about tea time.  I'd say we had the most fun at our table.  :D  

I would say My Cup Runneth Over but it just makes more sense to say it spilleth over since I don't have it all together.  Hence my favorite saying....

"We may not have it all together
but together we have it all"

Oh, how sweet! What a lovely post. Thank you for your kind words. I am so glad you enjoyed the tea. My girls LOVE getting together with other little girls.

Indeed, I did not know you are a "tea person". We will have to get together for tea at my house! Let the kids blow off steam in the pool or yard or house while we look on sipping iced teas. I literally have at least two dozen different types of tea in the house because I, too, love tea.

I love how you have friends who actually exist in real life. Envy you! :)

Did you bring the mice as a hostess gift? WHAT HAPPENED TO THE MICE? You simply cannot leave us in suspense.

I love tea! So calming...I usually drink..umm...multiple cups a day during the winter. Not sure what I'm going to do now that it's sweltering here...drink "Meadow Tea" I guess (of course that has sugar, and I don't add sugar to my hot tea).

Karen said...

Oh yes, and I'm with you on the traditional woman with the exception (and yes, I believe children are a blessing) sons' birthmom had 8 kids in 10-1/2 years....sadly she does not have any of them....and child abuse rates go up significantly with multiple kids close together...that being said, some women can handle it all spectacularly!

I'm worse than you... I was breastfeeding my firstbaby AND on the mini pill when I conceived Number 2 who arrived 13 months later. Then I planned number 3, and then number 4 arrived 13 months later holding the IUD! (4 babies in 4 years) Number 5 was another PILL baby... and I got to plan number 6!
Then I got two more babies without even getting pregnant! Pfffft.

I must admit I do love babies though, so it wasn't too bad.

I never realized you and zsuzsanna lived close by each other! did you meet online or did you know eachother before?

Keri Jo said...

I didn't realize you had your first 2 at 12 mon apart. My first 2 are 11 mon apart and I got pregnant nursing too!!!

I wish we had a tea place up here, i would love to take my girls to one.
