Taking Matters Into my Own Hands

Sometimes you just have to take matters into your own hands. My husband has this problem, his fingers cannot feel a hard mass in muscle tissue therefore he can’t really help me work out my knots in my back. I’m sure there’s a name for this condition of his. Anyway, my back REALLY hurts from […]

Top 10 Reasons to Become a Mother

I thought I’d come up with 10 reasons to become a mother to help along those ladies who aren’t sure weather or not they’re ready to take the leap and start a family. After reading this I’m sure you’ll want to grab your husband and start making some babies!! These are in no particular order. […]

How To Discipline a 15 Month Old

When you discipline a 15 month old you must ______________. Please fill in the blank. Sometimes I really feel like I have no idea what I am doing. How do you ignore tantrums yet still be tender to a child who doesn’t know how to express his feeling? How do you not go crazy saying […]

Hug a Chiropractor

I love my chiropractor!  Not in a romantical way of course, just in a “you fixed my body and I love you” way.  It’s taken two visits and I’m almost completely fixed of my sciatic and back problems.  I still have some hip pain but that’s just my arthritis dealing with my joints being loose […]

Beauty or Beast?

Sometimes being pregnant feels so inhuman.  When I’m spawning something inside of me, being the carrier of new life, it almost feels like I’m more animal than human.  At least it’s not my instinct to eat the placenta.  I told the nurse she could take Silas’ home and make soup out of it but she […]

General Unwellness

Ugh, whatever my husband had last week has now graced my presence. I woke up this morning with a lovely sore throat and just an overall sense of unwellness. I hadn’t been feeling normal all weekend and now I guess I know why. GRRRR. For someone who never gets out in public often I do […]

Special Pop

So this morning I faced the dreaded gestational diabetes test.  The test where they make you drink this disgusting bring orange pop and then make you sit for a whole hour only to stab you and take your blood.  The blood taking is always my favorite part (Ya I’m weird but I totally enjoy it.  […]

Bye Bye Boobies

This morning Silas slept through his usual nursing time, I usually will nurse him whenever he wakes up but today I didn’t. I just brought him some toys, put on Black Eyed Peas for him and went back to bed (I love that about my son). He was fine and hasn’t seemed to miss it […]

Goodbye Pretty Shoes

It’s time to retire the nice shoes until after baby is born. Instead I need to wear ugly runners or crocs or else my hips will come loose and I’ll topple to the floor in a big heap of pitiful jointpain-ness…hmmm. I got to sing in-front of my entire church today in my nice sweater […]


OK, I usually don’t write two blogs in one day but I need to share this moment with someone, no one else is around. I just felt the first touch of baby toes (or some other bit) on my ribs. I haven’t looked forward to this certain type of contact because it’s TERRIBLY annoying and […]

Finding Worth

I’m finding that I’m having trouble with something. I have a hard time feeling like my job (staying at home) is as worthy and of value as Brent’s who’s out there bringing home the bacon. I have guilt that I don’t make any money. I never thought I would ever feel this way and I […]

Pregnancy #2

I was a cleaning machine yesterday. I even cleaned the storage room which was piled high with recycling that we’ve been too lazy to take out. I even um, what’s the word? Swept? And um, mopped? the storage room. Now my husband just needs to take out all of the bags and bags of recycling. […]

Shower Time

Ever since Silas was a newborn I’ve loved to take him in the shower with me. When he was that small I could wash myself one handed. Then I’d sit on the bottom and lay back with him laying on my chest and he’d sometimes nurse and it was so nice and peacefull. He’d almost […]

Is He Back?

Is this the calm before the storm or is Silas actually feeling better? I’m not hearing tears yet, or whining, or sadness. I’m frightened to move or to do anything wrong, oh the glorious quiet!! He’s just walked into the room with his cracker in hand and a smile on his face. I think my […]

Snotty noses and the boobie song

Lately my son has been pulling out my shirt and peering in to see what’s going on in there. I always tell him “those are boobies” and he quietly says beeboo and then smacks them or something like that. Anyway, he’s been singing this song lately and I haven’t thought anything of it. He just […]
