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:
|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.|
