It’s no surprise, we’ve kept our kids’ ahem, private parts, well, private until they are born. Finding out generally only serves one purpose: buying pink or blue clothing and nursery accessories. I hold the opinion, though, that it’s more important to focus on the baby as a human versus a boy or girl. Keeping the … [Read more…]
I’ve never been one for ‘get this kid out of me’… and it’s not CARRYING the kid that’s the problem. Because he/she is awesome, right? My doctor promised. Lol. What the problem is.. is.. well everything else. All the symptoms. Let’s get it all out there shall we? I’ve been hinting around at this, … [Read more…]
We took our miscarried baby which had been wrapped gently in a handkerchief and placed into a container, and buried it in the cold light of dawn. We said goodbye amongst tears, shivering sweat, and a broken shovel. We marked the spot with a stone and walked back, bodies touching, loss echoing through us. In … [Read more…]
In 4 weeks, my oldest will turn 5. I’ll also have a 2 year old and be 33 weeks pregnant. So why don’t I feel like a grown up? Most days I still feel like that inner 13 year old, never quite sure of what’s coming next, and more than willing to just go along … [Read more…]

Perhaps it’s something to do with the whole celebrities trying to get attention on awards shows thing, or perhaps it’s because I have 2 girls already and thinking about … [Read more…]

Has this happened to you? You see your kid scratching their head and automatically you’re thinking of 15 loads of laundry and lice treatments. If you’re like me, you might have ‘Parent PTSD’. I read on a blog recently where someone calmly got a ‘safe box’ for a mouse after they discovered gnawed food on … [Read more…]
I’ve heard that if you put marshmallow in the bottom of an ice cream cone that it will keep the cone from dripping. I don’t know about you, but I’m going to use this as an excuse to grab a handful of marshmallows for myself each time we make cones.
Who knew that when we set out 6 years ago to get pregnant that we’d end up as such a wild bunch? Happy Father’s day to my husband. He doesn’t get nearly enough credit for our sassy, smart, wonderful girls!
Does this resonate with you at all? We were driving to my nephew’s graduation (1.5 hours–and yeah we get to do it AGAIN tonight for my niece)… and it starts raining. Again. I’ve had about enough. We didn’t get wet going in, but the normally blazing hot gym was cool, and the rain poured so … [Read more…]
