HAPPY HAPPY 4TH BIRTHDAY TO
HOLY COW! I can't believe it has been so long. And I want to CELEBRATE!
Four years ago, today, I posted my very first post here on Testosterone Overload. I was a lonely, sad mama who had just given birth to her third ...yep, you guessed it...boy, and wanted a place to post pictures and write stories about my boys so that my family, whom I had just moved away from, would have the opportunity to "see them grow up".
It was right about that same time that I began diving into the pits of Postpartum Depression (you can read all about that on my "other" blog Methodical Musings of an Unbalanced Woman).
Let's just say that we have had a lot of ups and downs since this blog was created....including the addition of, yet another, bouncing bundle of baby testosterone.....#4, Mr. Golden Locks.
I've blogged about the good, the bad and the ugly...about boogers and battles, stinky bodies (mine, not theirs), and poop (oh...and keys in toilets too)...about our very first head injury, a growth discovered in my abdomen, and falling off of pedestals.....of twin girl prediction, ingenious parenting moments, and amazing couponing skills and steals.
It really has been an amazing/hard/exciting/excruciating 4 years. And I could not have gotten through it without you. I have been comforted and supported more than you can imagine. Now it's time to give back.
Here's to another 4 years of Testosterone Overload....cheers!
