Back In Time

January 23, 2014

The past few weeks, okay, months, I’ve been participating in Throwback Thursday on Facebook. Throwback Thursday probably started over on Instagram, but to be honest, I decided to call it quits with Instagram when I started seeing all the same Instagram pictures on Facebook, anyway. Yes, as a matter of fact, I love the run-on sentence. So. […]

My First Born

December 13, 2013

Dear Stevie, This time 11 years ago I was hopped up on adrenaline and magnesium. (ELEVEN years? How is that even possible?) I had just been presented with the most beautiful being I had ever laid eyes on. Within minutes, they whisked you away because you were born pre-maturely at 36 weeks. We had your name picked […]

When All Else Fails, Drink More Water

August 27, 2013

So. Yesterday, I mentioned that Alex was just coming off of some sort of viral nastiness in his throat. Alex returned to school today, and I was hoping we had seen the last of the fever. But alas, today at 11:56 AM EST, I received a call from the Middle School Health Nurse (my second […]

A Letter To My Firstborn

August 1, 2013

As he walked past me, I grabbed on to his gray Nike t-shirt and pulled him onto my lap. He is too big for me to cuddle, but I cuddle him anyway. His lanky legs hang almost to the floor. I lean down and kiss him on the forehead, noticing his ridiculously long eyelashes. He is […]

Double Digits

December 19, 2012

It’s been ten whole years since you first came into my life. TEN. As in double digits. Only it seems like just yesterday they placed your tiny wrinkled body in my arms while I was half-loopy from magnesium. And today, I can barely hold you on my lap. I realize it might seem like I […]

I’m Back!!!

June 17, 2012

Hi there. Remember me? It’s been a few days (okay, a LOT of days) since I’ve checked in here on the blog. First, I’d like to apologize to those who have stopped by here looking for their daily dose of crazy. The crazy was here, I just haven’t had the time to write about it. My house looks […]

Me, My Boy, and The Girls

January 9, 2012

I remember the night well. It was a Sunday, and it was approximately 7:30 P.M. when we walked through the door with him. I remember looking at him, and then back at McDaddy and asking, “Well, now what do we do?” Our household had just grown by two feet, and we were the proud [inexperienced] […]

Three is Nine

December 12, 2011

Nine years ago today, on December 12, 2002, I was headed to a weekly non-stress test at our local Children’s Hospital, as I had done for eight weeks. I had spent the past four weeks on bed rest, with another four weeks to go. As I waited for my baby boy to log ten movements, I […]

Super Summer Summary

August 25, 2011

Summer is holding on by a thread. Or maybe I should say I’m holding on to summer by a thread. The mornings are cooler. Daylight ends sooner. And I don’t even want to mention the dread I feel just thinking about the cold weather that is no doubt just around the corner, with its friends snow, and […]
