This is the Stuff You Use... A bunch of firsts

It's been a crazy month! They're all a little that way but each one is uniquely crazy. This one is particularly notable for a few "firsts"...

My first broken bone.
I've broken ligaments... and lamps... and hearts... but bones? This is a first. I'm grateful it was a relatively tiny one.

My first traffic violation.
Ticket courtesy of a traffic cam on the way home from Mass. Oh-so-frustrating. However, it's not the first time that I've broken a traffic law... I've just always gotten away with it before. So I had it coming.

My sixth child's first steps.
*sigh* He's a little young yet but I knew it was coming. I can't tell whether my heart leapt or fell. I give him two weeks to get the hang of it and then my wee lad will be toddling. Hopefully not over any staircases.

In honor of this month of firsts, I happily share a great little song by Francesca Battistelli. She sings about lost keys, lost phones and traffic tickets with a whole lotta joy and gratitude. I love it when this one comes on the car radio. If it doesn't, I sing it anyway (just ask the kids) and pretend to remember the lyrics. Enjoy!
