Empty Cups & Overflowing Saucers

When people first become parents they are so thrilled and picture it as this lovely dream. The baby breastfeeds perfectly from the start, they sleep through the night at a week old, they listen when you tell them something the first time (I almost couldn’t get that last one out without laughing, I’m sorry). Sounds… Continue reading Empty Cups & Overflowing Saucers

Live

The past few days have me stuck in bed feeling horrible, but while I have been feeling like roadkill it has given me some time to think, rot my brain with useless videos, rest (of course), but to also put some things into perspective for me.

Timeline of Life

As I sit here during a blizzard organizing pictures on my computer while my children eat their dinner I can’t help but reminisce on all the things that has happened over the years.

The Difference

Before I had my children I had absolutely no idea what I wanted to do when I grew up. Now three years later I realize what I want to do; I want to help other mothers. Currently I am studying to be a lactation consultant, you wouldn’t believe how many women I have heard from… Continue reading The Difference

My Husband

My husband Shawn and I have been together for eight years and married for five of those years, and boy what an adventure it has been thus far.   We met while we were in high school but we never really hung out. There was a class called JROTC (Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps) that… Continue reading My Husband
