Day 26~”31 Days of PINK” TJ from Sweet Sugar Blossom

Today’s guest is T.J. From Sugar Blossoms and Sugar and Spice Digital Designs she is such a sweetheart!!  We have met at several local Blog mixers!!!  I am so excited to have her here today!!!

“I always thought I’d have a daughter; a little “mini me” to dress up and play beauty shop with.   She would have long, brown hair like mine {which she would LOVE to have fixed in amazing ways with flowers and bows and headbands!!} and love ballet.   That’s what I think of when I see an adorable pink tutu or I make another pink headband for a niece.   My kids won’t get near that stuff.   My youngest won’t even glance at the Barbie aisle in the store!

I have 3 children: all boys.

I grew up in song and dance classes, put on “shows” for my family, dressed up my littlest sister and did photo shoots with her in the backyard, painted all 4 sisters nails, cut my mom’s hair, and had a serious obsession with anything purple.  Years later it never occurred to me that when I headed to the hospital to give birth to my youngest son that he would be my last child.

I didn’t have difficult pregnancies.  The previous two deliveries weren’t that horrible.  It wasn’t supposed to happen the way it did.  When my little boy came into the world, I started to leave it.  I don’t remember much about it.  I know my mom was holding my hand for an hour before I knew who she was.  I know I was freezing.  I know the blood they were prepping for my transfusion was also frozen and I would have to wait for it to thaw.  I remember a lot of tubes running in and out of me.

Thanks to an outstanding doctor and the blessing of modern medicine, I got to come home with my son and introduce him to his big brothers. But I was told, in no uncertain terms, that I was done having children.  Not a day goes by that I don’t thank my Heavenly Father for this beautiful life He’s letting me live.  My boys are amazing.  Every one of them is blonde with light eyes, just like their dad.  I still have times when people ask me, “Aren’t you going to try for a girl?!”

     “I tell them we only have “one recipe”. . . and I think it’s pretty sweet.”
