Facing Fears

On Wednesday night, I dreamed of snakes. Not just one or two, but lots of snakes… every where I went there were snakes. When I woke up, I was still scared to put my feet on the floor or use the restroom because I’m absolutely terrified of snakes. I mentioned it to Banks and googled […]

Facing Fears

I am officially more pregnant than I’ve ever been in my life. J was born at 37 weeks and five days, and here I sit at 38 weeks… plump with little C and wondering if this is going to be my state of being until he cuts his way out at 16 and asks to […]


The out of the blue reminder that there’s a tiny person in my uterus never ceases to take my breath away. Every roll and tumble, every hiccup, every karate kick to my rib cage. It’s like he reminds me every so often with a little kiss of understanding that yes, I am growing a person. […]


I ended my last post with just a sentence, nothing exciting, but some of you had questions. Did it mean something? Was there a hint of information behind that innocent little period? Was I trying to reveal a little piece of what’s been going on in my life… a life that has been unfolding in […]

Broken (Warning: Trigger)

It was a busy morning… like all mornings are when you’re juggling getting ready for work with pregnancy, fixing breakfast, and mothering a six year old. There were the normal fights over what to wear (both mine and his) and the battle of “just try one bite or no (insert some sort of bonus)” between […]

Happy 8 Months, Little J

Stealing a page from my dear friend “Blair” on this one. It’s necessary that I write a letter to J on this momentous occasion!! J: It’s hard for Mommy to believe that eight months ago I didn’t know what your face looked like. And hard to remember that this time last year she was having […]

Pregnancy is wonderful and other lies your mother told you…

I am in the process of forgetting my pregnancy. This must be the case because lately when I see pregnant women I think to myself “Awww, she’s pregnant! How sweet and wonderful!” If you knew me when I was pregnant that statement would make you laugh. It worries me that I’m forgetting my pregnancy because […]

True Confessions

I have a confession to make. One that terrifies me to say out loud but one that I’m going to share with you anyway. It’s been on my mind for a while now, pretty much since I was approximately 18 weeks pregnant with J. What is it? Glad you asked. I’m scared to have another […]

Friday Faves — Guest Blogger Edition

Oh Cybil. Cybil. Cybil. Cybil. How do I love her, let me count the ways! She is seriously funny. Not just sort of amusing but absolutely send milk out of your nose funny. And she gets me, which really should scare her a lot but actually seems to amuse her. Her blog, A Big Pot […]

The Fear Factor

When I was pregnant, all I thought about was what it would be like when J got here. The first six months or so I was scared and excited but mostly excited. I daydreamed about all these wonderful things I would do with him like decorate sugar cookies at Christmas and dye Easter Eggs at, […]
