Good grief gravy. It’s been a long time. We’ve been so stinking busy. We decided to get our home on the market this summer and buy a bigger home. It took a LOT of work to get our house ready but we took care of so many details. It sold in a week! Now we… Continue reading We Sold Our House!
You guys, I am so preoccupied with getting my house ready to move…and finding a house to move into! Brent and I moved to this place almost 10 years ago with a 20 month old Silas and a 2 month old Isaac. We didn’t mean to stay long, we had pipe dreams of flipping it… Continue reading Moving
It’s been four years since the miscarriage of our daughter Serenity. Her birthday, on March 21st, was especially hard this year. Violet came into our lives so soon after we lost Serenity, thankfully, and my awe and wonder of her was a little bandaid over the gaping wound in my heart. I thought I was… Continue reading The Loneliness of Miscarriage
“I am under no obligation to make sense to people.” Brooke Hampton.” A friend of mine posted this on Facebook today and it felt like I was finally given permission to blog…again. REASONS WHY I STOPPED BLOGGING: Kids and shit. I don’t feel right making my kids lives public anymore. It hit me one day… Continue reading I am Under No Obligation to Make Sense to You
I feel like I am in the home stretch!! 30 weeks pregnant now and if she comes early like Isaac, then I only have about 9 weeks left. Let’s hope she is like her brother, I am kind of counting on it. Pregnancy brain is in full force. In face, since I’ve turned 30 weeks… Continue reading Preggo Update
Exactly a year ago today we were told that our little girl’s heart had stopped beating. A whole year. I remember that day so clearly and how I had wished I could skip ahead to where time had gone by and I the pain wasn’t so sharp and painful. Where I felt like I could… Continue reading It’s Been a Year
It’s almost been a year since we lost our little girl Serenity, time has flown by so fast. It’s hard to believe it’s been so long already. At that time all I wanted was another baby inside of me as fast as I could possibly get one. Of course it never works out the way… Continue reading There’s A Baby In My Belly
This is a public service announcement. Like always, I’m here to help. Sometimes I wonder if people who make jackass moves are just actually nice people who don’t know any better. Unfortunately, in passing, all we see is that one jackass move and that nice, kind, person is engrained in our minds as a jackass. … Continue reading You Might Be A Jackass If…….
Ever since I lost Serenity I’ve been on this health journey. I just knew I couldn’t go back to my old lifestyle with this much pain inside me. I would go insane. I began working out, walking, running, swimming…pretty much whatever I felt like. It really helped. The more pain I feel inside, the more… Continue reading Getting Stronger
Whenever I look at Pinterest, it’s like I’m looking at this alien world. I had no idea there were people out there who spent so much time making their children’s sandwiches look like Disney characters (then I wonder how it looks when it gets to school….scrambled Disney characters?). Is that like…an every day thing? It’s… Continue reading Mother F*cking Homemaking: An Homage to JJ Keith

I’m seeing this post tossed around Facebook for the past two days. A lot of people are giving it the thumbs up and it would be cool if you’d first read it and then come back to hear what I have to say. If you’ve already read “FYI (If You’re a Teenage Girl)” by Kimberly… Continue reading FYI (if you’re a teenage girl) – A Response
What just happened? I blinked and the summer break ended. We drove to school today in what I can only describe as a torrential downpour, I told the children that the Earth was crying because they didn’t have all the time in the world to play outside anymore and it’ll miss them while they’re in… Continue reading Back to School Blues
Another sick twist in the continuing saga of our sad story of loss. All this time spent mourning a little boy named Jonah. Mourning the loss of this little boy who I knew would have tried with all his might to keep up with his big brothers. Enjoying having my three boys. I feel like… Continue reading I Have a Daughter
