Cellulitis; A Love Story

Yowsers. So much to share since last post. We are moving. It’s just something we like to do when I am in my last trimester. I think it’s probably because I am so sweet and gentle and never complain. I am also very organized, but not demanding, and really make the experience special for everyone. […]

Week 12 of What to Expect When You Are Expecting, Again

Week 12 How you are feeling: Duh. Your friend Scott has the audacity to say one of those obnoxious pregnancy comments. Scott, father of four. Saying the words. Scott is your friend.

Week 11 of What to Expect When You Are Expecting, Again

Week 11 How you are feeling: Well, still crappy. Headaches, all the puking, incontinence, walking farts, tender nips etc… Gah. And then people want to talk to you.

Week 10 of What to Expect When You Are Expecting, Again

Week 10 How you are feeling: Like a delicate flower. You know, the kind that wretches, wets itself, and breaks wind as it walks. Pretty pretty flower. A fun change you are noticing this week is that you are no longer just the mild mannered momma who teaches Sunday school and shops at Costco. Nope. […]

The Day Everything Changed

I’d like to share a story with you and then I’d like to ask you to take another step. I went to Trinity Christian School until high school. Then I begged my parents to let me go to public school. Reluctantly, they allowed their sheltered child to attend Coronado High School. It was a culture […]

Week 9 of What to Expect When You Are Expecting, Again

Week 9 How you are feeling: Awful. This week your baby is no longer considered an “embryo” and is now referred to as a “fetus”. It is important to note that such terminology will mean nothing to your children who refer to the baby as “the reason mom is puking again” or “why mom looks […]

Week 8 of What to Expect When You Are Expecting, Again

Week 8 How you are feeling: Like death, which is remarkable considering you are carrying a life.         The thought of food makes you barf, and so does the absence of food. Your family trembles with fear every time you announce, “dinner is ready!” Their fear is understandable because food created by […]

So, Same Time Next Week?

The firefighter and I volunteered to teach Sunday School to our four year old and his class this year. I think we have done a pretty good job. Tried to come up with activities that fit the lesson and really bonded with these kiddos. …well… Maybe we have become too comfortable. The firefighter and our […]

Week 7 of What to Expect When You Are Expecting, Again

Week 7 How you are feeling: According to whattoexpect.com “While your baby is the size of a blueberry, your breasts probably look more like melons” this week. Oh absolutely. Shut up, Whattoexpect.com! You don’t know me. Or my life. Or post-nursing-multiple-babies pregnancy boobies. Melons… Ha! More like melon balls flopping awkwardly around in tube socks. […]

Week 6 of What to Expect When You Are Expecting, Again

Week 6 How you are feeling: Hello, nausea! Remember the giant horse pill they call a prenatal vitamin? Yeah, that sucker is going to try to kill you slowly, as it gets lodged in your gag reflex area and you struggle to remember the point of the dang thing, if it really is so important […]
