Another year, another tear - babies don't keep

Tonight I laid in bed and snuggled two little boys.  Their little bodies aren't so little anymore.  Full of energy and excitement rounding out the birthday party hangover we had today.  Elijah needed snuggles and his body is now half the size of mine.  Four years ago he was 2 lbs and barely bigger than my hand.  Woah, where did the time go?  Xavier was wiggly and giggly next to me, and he too is getting so big.  Yesterday we celebrated Elijah turning 4 and Xavier turning 3.  I had been so busy running around getting ready for this party...

The Mom Shame Game

Let's flash back to 1950.  From what I have been told, kids roamed free because your neighbors were active in knowing and disciplining your kids, moms were not judging each other - they were banding together to HELP raise children.  They were THE VILLAGE.  Now we have homeschool vs public school, SAHM vs WM (stay at home mom vs working mom), organic vs non-organic, circumcise or not, breast or bottle....  I could go on and on with this list.  In an effort to make ourselves stand out and be independent we have isolated ourselves based on our personal thoughts and beliefs.  Because...

First of all - being a mom is HARD.  SO DAMN HARD.  Why do we as a society need to help and honor moms once a year?  The funny jokes about dads letting her...

The 5 Hardships of Infertility

5 long years.  That is how long it took us to become parents.  Those five years felt like 50 years though.  I'll never forget the pain I felt, and how empty I felt all those years.   I wasn't technically infertile.  I actually got pregnant quicker than quick most times. Fertile Myrtle they called me, and I would cringe every time I heard it.  My problem was that I couldn't stay pregnant and in those 5 years I suffered 8 miscarriages.  I remember going to the Infertility clinic and being frustrated to hear that the options that most infertile couples had -...
