When Pinterest Goes Wrong

Pinterest is inspiring, addicting, educational, thought provoking, self esteem ruining, self esteem helping, amazing and sometimes even a total disaster. I’ve been a part of Pinterest for a while and go through phases of pinning and complete avoidance.  I find that it can be very shallow on there.  I get annoyed at some of the… Continue reading When Pinterest Goes Wrong

Beam Me Up

I apologize.  Some days I just don’t have much else to say.  All I want to do is whine and complain and scream about how much I miss my baby. I don’t want to bring people down. I’ve been listening to this song a lot and I’m even learning to play it on the guitar. … Continue reading Beam Me Up

Turning Thirty

click image for source.

I’m turning thirty next week.  Dirty dirty thirty. It’s crazy what happens in life in a year.  The last year has had it’s up and downs but I dare say that it was one of the happiest years of my life.  Quite a few things happened that I never mentioned here but they were significant… Continue reading Turning Thirty

Who’s The Crazy One?

I have this memory that when I was in Cuba swimming in the ocean with one of my besties (@courtenaymomma).  Her and I swam really far out in this crystal clear water and then we stopped for a minute and were talking then we looked down and saw two sharks swimming below us.  We yelled… Continue reading Who’s The Crazy One?

How am I?

Still hard to figure out what to write these days.  I don’t want to be all doom and gloom.  I don’t want to always make people sad with my story.  I just have so many feelings I want to get out. It aches.  It aches really bad.  Thankfully I am easily distracted but so many… Continue reading How am I?

Jonah’s Story: Part 2

Click here for part 1 Brent and I decided together that we would take the night and in the morning we would head to the hospital.  We needed our rest, I needed a moment to gather my thoughts.  That night we slept more peacefully than we had in months.  All was quiet.  That began the… Continue reading Jonah’s Story: Part 2

Jonah’s Story: Part 1

I don’t even know how to start writing this – most of what I’m about to say I haven’t even re-lived in my mind yet. I’m terrified if I write and terrified if I don’t. I’m scared it will not be perfect enough, dignified enough to honour my baby. I’m scared if I don’t, that… Continue reading Jonah’s Story: Part 1

Ten Days Ago

That little life that was growing inside of me.  That little baby I felt doing flips inside me not long ago (10 days to be exact).  I brought it home today.  Not the way I ever imagined bringing it home.  Not in the heat of august in a new summer outfit.  Not in the gorgeous… Continue reading Ten Days Ago

bad bevahior…it’s my fault

**Lets pretend I named this “Negative Behavior…it’s my fault” just cuz I think that’s better** I think it’s after a blog where I comment on how lovely and behaved my children are where they decide to act out.  It’s usually my fault. Like when my child goes back to neurosensory integration for the first time… Continue reading bad bevahior…it’s my fault

Pregnant and Irrational

at least I still have my pregnancy glow :)

Typically, I am a reasonable person.  In my older years I’ve gotten a bit nutty around PMS time but I’m still able to tell my husband that I understand I’m being irrational.  This pregnancy I’ve also felt pretty OK but I’ve felt some pretty irrational things and done a few irrational things worth noting. I… Continue reading Pregnant and Irrational

In Awe

I was thinking the other day.  I was thinking about how fantastic my children are.  How they’ve just gotten to be such pleasant well-behaved children (well, they’re still kids and they still get in trouble but they’re not terrors and neither have behavior issues).  I caught myself noting that I was so glad that they… Continue reading In Awe
