Peggy explains her struggle with postpartum and why she wanted to include it in the show.

Seeing Gretchen talk to both Alexis and her father about marrying Slade made me think about what I had always heard, when you know you know and you won't question it. I didn't think I believed this until I met Micah! Literally after our second date he was telling me we would get married one day, and I never doubted him or got freaked out by it. My sister told me on our wedding day she knew Micah was the one for me because he was the first guy I never questioned my feelings for. With other boyfriends I would constantly call her and question my feelings or rationalize if I should be with them or not. This was my experience however, and there are no rules with love, so if Gretchen and Slade are happy, that is what matters! I feel it's whatever works best for you. If she wants a "lease" and wants to have a baby out of wedlock, so be it! She needs to do what's right for her and not society.

And finally onto my family's Palm Springs trip! I was so excited to get out of town with the girls and relax for the weekend. I couldn't believe right when we settled in at the pool Capri cut her finger. We all know accidents happen, but I was so upset they had put a glass frame on the bed and even more so that we had not noticed it was glass. We assumed it was plastic. Lesson learned. Never assume and make sure to check everything more carefully when the babies are with us. London would never have grabbed that frame, but Capri is my curious wild child! As you could see my anxiety from the postpartum kicked in full force, but Micah stayed so calm and was so great in taking care of the situation. He suggested I stay at the pool with London so she wouldn't be at the hospital and possibly be scared or bored, and I'm really glad we did! When he got to the hospital, obviously the doctor didn't say stitches would be ridiculous, but Micah knew my anxiety was bad, so he told me that to make sure I remained calm and so I knew that Capri was just fine.

Later that evening, we had a fun family dinner with Micah's dad who lives out there and his older sister and her son. Micah and his dad have only had a relationship for the past seven and a half years, so it was a really nice evening. Micah's father is very handsome and rather eccentric. He used to be a well known fine artist and had a gallery of his own work in Brentwood. He also had a very successful design firm and was responsible for Ralph Lauren's polo pony logo, Lamborghini, Meguiars car polish, and many more. Now you know where Micah gets his talent from! I wish you all could have seen this dinner to learn more about our family.

Well I won't drag this out anymore. Thanks for reading my blog! Until next week!
