There’s Value in Fat

  Fat. How many of us have it on our minds today? How many of us are feeling ashamed by it? Well I’m here to tell you (and myself) that there’s value in fat. And we, every single inch of us, are valuable. I’m sitting here in the light of my SAD light, trying to […]

This is How I Procrastinate From Folding Laundry!

Aside from the nauseating Jack Johnson music, that totally made me want a baby hummingbird.  It almost made me LIKE the Jack Johnson hit, almost.  Usually his music more just makes me wanna cut myself.  Maybe it’s because I listened to the album on loop for hours at a time playing Puzzle Pirates whilst pregnant […]

Brain Health

If you didn’t see yesterday’s post you probably should.  Because it’s a cute little song that Silas and Brent recorded together and it’ll make you smile.  It’s only a minute long. It’s been a whirlwind of a year for me so far.  Some really crappy things have happened, none that I’m willing to blog about…ya […]

Update

I’ve been sitting here fiddling around with my blog.  Dusting off the old bloggy shelves so-to-speak.  I was giddy about the prospect of blogging later in the day when I realized I wont have time and I got to blog NOW!!  Woot. Since it has been ages, I thought I should give you a point […]

Breakthroughs!

I could not be more proud of Silas these past few days.  He’s done SO MANY typical things.  I love it. Before leaving to go to church yesterday Isaac was VERY upset.  Silas walked up to him, looked him in the eye and said “Ikey all done sad”,  to which Ikey replied “ok” and they […]

What Our Tantrums Are Like

Oh my, Silas just tantrumed forrrrr….30 minutes.  Yup…30.  I didn’t sustain any injuries but that’s partly because I locked Isaac and I in the bathroom.  Then, dodging Silas, I ran and locked us in Isaac’s bedroom, holding the door closed with my feet so I could safely get clothes on Isaac and get him into […]

New Words and GARDEN PHOTOS!!

Ikey is saying new words almost daily!! Yesterday he said “squish” and “cheers”. This morning he said “fish”. So now he can say: Mama (which sounds like mumum), Dada (which he yelled out when Brent opened the door yesterday), row row row, up, this and that (depending if he wants this or that 🙂 ). […]

Bloggy Cleanse Fest Extravaganza

Wow, I came on here and then I got distracted by other web sites.  Since I’m getting close to weaning Ikey I’m in the market for a good cleanse.  I’m pretty much decided on the Master Cleanse because it’s cheap and I like the idea of fasting for many reasons.  I think that fasting helps […]

Flab to Fab

I’d just like to start off with a big thank you to Jennie and her traveling lunges she made me do last night.  My groin is just feeling FANTASTIC!! REALLY!!  grrrrrrrrr. Jennie went to one of those bootcamps once and learned how to do it all and wrote up these little cards and now we […]

Medic Alert

We got Silas’ Medic Alert bracelet yesterday. What an odd thing to see on my own little darling’s hand but I think it’s necessary. I wasn’t going to get one just yet but the parents on the allergy board made a very good point. I thought I was with Silas all the time so he […]

You Can Do It

Slowly coming back to life while her body fights off the last of the evil throat infection, Leah finds herself able to sit at the computer. Having given up on eggs and letting her savage son Silas devour most of them, she tries to swallow the last bits of food and collect her thoughts. Her […]

Bring Me Baileys!!

I’m having coffee today, it’s a coffee day. It’s actually a coffee and Baileys day but since I’m without Baileys, I guess I’m just drinking coffee. Silas is downstairs having a massive temper tantrum because he wants a bite of wrap. I have many bites I’ve pre-torn for him that are sitting right beside me. […]

Weight Loss (or gain) Wednesday

I know I was going to keep you all up to date on my weight loss progress but there really hasn’t been any.  I’ve most likely lost about 30 pounds or something but it’s just me going between like 168 and 173.  Dang. It really makes me mad because I’m a healthier eater than most […]

Reasons for the Madness

I think I’ve discovered the cause of my icky feelings lately.  I was in Shoppers Drug Mart last night (one of my most favorite stores) to pick up some rubby stuff for Silas’ chest.  He was having loads of trouble breathing through his nose last night.  I found some nice all natural stuff and then […]

Swimmen in Da Pool

Silas the great was “swimmen in da pool” the other day at the Hotel.  Brent’s parents were here and we always love to take advantage of a quiet pool and the extra hands available and get the boys in the water.  They sure love it.  A few weeks ago Silas was really tentative about swimming […]
