Happy Friday once again! When will I ever find time to write more meaningful substance? I don't know but for now, it's a look back at the week in Seven Quick Takes.
For the longest time, I have wanted a Mother's Ring but also wanted to be sure that I wasn't going to buy one only to realize later that I needed to add a new stone.
Side note: Did I ever tell you about the time I bought a cheap ring with the kids names on it when I was pregnant with Brendan? We knew he was a boy and were planning on naming him Charlie so I have a ring with all of my kids' names on it but the last one is wrong. I mean, the ring was only $40 but I totally jumped the gun on that one. Sorry Brendan! You don't even look like a Charlie!
Anyway, now that I'm 42 and a half and couldn't wait any longer, I designed this ring online and I am so happy with it! I originally had the ring with each of my kid's birthstones in it, but each of my kids has a different birthstone (seven kids born in seven different months) and it looked a bit too colorful and discombobulated for me. Then I thought to myself "Self...what if you had blue sapphires for the boys and a pink sapphire for the girl and it would look all symmetrical and not so clownish?" Voila! The finished product:
Soccer is well underway. Five kids, five different teams (I should have had twins!) and they are all so adorable...well the big guys are handsome but you'll just have to trust me since they won't let me take their picture easily, I'll have to bring my big camera to their games to get some.
|Declan is way too nice on the field - we are working on being more aggressive.|
|Maggie does not have any issues with being aggressive - the girl has grown up with 6 brothers.|
|Brendan scored four goals but clarified that it's only practice for him, not real games.|
