Happy "Birth" day to me!

 A little over 8 years ago today I calmly...(yes calmly) asked the ultrasound tech to please keep looking, because deep down I knew that I had not just one baby...but 2, in that rapidly growing baby bump of mine.  She rest assured my panic stricken husband (J) she was right, and that just one baby would be entering our already family of 4.   I on the other hand...type A personality and all, refused to let it go...honestly knowing that at that moment, our lives would never be the same.  As several months past...J eventually got used to the idea of doubling our kid load...and on Feb. 9 th, 2 of the most precious babies were laid in my arms to keep.

So Laura Ingalls-ish

I must confess...I was a chicken hater! Yep, there you have it...every time I would even as much as peek out the window, all I saw was chicken POOP, even if it wasn't really there...I saw it! Every stinking time I would take the trash out, chicken poop on my shoe...I would try and be nice and get them water, chicken poop on my hands...not to mention the tiny detail of having them for 9 poopie months...with NO EGGS!

You probably ask yourself, why does she have these chicks? make a long story short, my oldest of the 4 (lets call her A)...never ceases to amaze me.  All her life she has been an animal lover...therefore all her life she has surprised me by bringing random stuff into my home.  When I say surprise...we aren't talking good surprises...I'm talking,"surprise mom I know you said no...but look how cute they are"..."surprise mom I have had this kitten in my car/room for 3 days.  This is the girl who would stuff snails and worms into her pockets for me to find, the girl that has brought home dogs, fish, turtles, cats and yes you guessed it...1 day old baby chicks!

Ok, maybe that was more long than short...but there you have it.  I must admit in the beginning of the chicken scandal I was kinda happy...I thought great, this is going to be so "green" of me to have organic free range chicken eggs anytime I want...and someone else will do the work.  Fabulous! But then the help left off to college...and guess who had to buck up and fill in...meeeeee 

The best part to this story is that I...#1 chicken hater...have done a complete 180! In the last 2 months I have grown to really love my 2 feathered friends.  I look forward to having them greet me each morning and loving that with each new day I receive 2 beautiful brown eggs.  The crazy thing is, I think I will be adding to my little farm!

Hallelujah...I have made my way back into the wonderful-ever-consuming world of BLOGGING! 

 I can already feel my fingers becoming very they began to once again type all the silly (and sometimes serious) nonsense piled in my head.  

So grab a cup of tea...and check in often, as I share my fabulous not-so-perfect life with ya all!
