My first installment of blogging with wine is brought to you by Nk'Mip Cellars (not a sponsorship, of course; just my drinking it). A complex, fruity, dry pinot blanc, from the desert of Osoyoos. Delicious.
Moms-needing-to-drink, take note:
It's time to drink wine on a Wednesday night.
Ironically, or not, three years ago today I was cradling a brand new baby
I remember waiting for my Mom to come watch Jack - cause, you know, I needed to
go have a baby. She was out car shopping. And late.
I remember pacing the halls at the hospital, willing this kid to come out of
me. Only ending up begging them to break my water and get things
moving. But I did it; fast and drug-free, I may add.
Oliver is my miracle baby - who was never supposed to happen. After my
hemorrhage and uterine artery embolization after Jack was born, I was left
without blood flow to half of my uterus and was told I'd never have more
And then there were two...
(God help me).
So, to you, Oliver, I raise my pinot blanc, forget about how exhausted I am,
and thank you for being my (generally) well behaved, fun, happy little
Happy birthday, baby!
