Recently, I had a conversation with a mother who shared that she was struggling to conceive a second child. I told her how sorry I was that she had to go through that struggle. Her response was “thanks, I am trying to focus on the positive, the fact that I have one child and some people … Continue reading Mixed
It’s Nurses week again. The one week a year where we take the time to appreciate those who help us immensely in our time of need. Especially now after Senator Maureen Walsh made a statement that nurses “probably play cards”, their dedication needs to be recognized. Last year I wrote a post thanking all the … Continue reading Nurses Week 2019
When we lost Asher, we weren’t the only people who felt that loss. I know so many who cried with us and mourned the loss of our son. For many of our friends and family, we were the first people they were close with to experience such a loss and it hit others hard. Now, … Continue reading Grandparent Grief
I really love our current home. We have done a lot to it in the 5 years we’ve owned it to make it ours. If we didn’t get a two for one deal on babies, we probably would still be there for another 5 years. However, having twins has made me realize our main living … Continue reading Moving
On Tuesday we celebrated Asher’s second birthday. It was a bittersweet day, as it will always be. It will always mark the passing of time since I last held my son. Two years is too many to go with a piece of your heart missing and yet, it will only continue to get longer. However, … Continue reading Happy 2nd Birthday, Asher!

Now take that, and multiply it by two! People love twins. As we walk past, we hear “oh there’s … Continue reading Are They Twins?
One year ago, I got home from work and put off taking an at-home pregnancy test. It had become a ritual of mine to always take one the day before my beta test with the fertility doctor. I needed to know the answer before the bloodwork confirmed it was negative. I needed to be prepared … Continue reading One Year Since the Return of Hope
Prior to writing this post, I read my post summarizing 2017. 2017 was the worst year of my life. Yes, it brought me Asher, but it only gave me one day with him; one day and a lifetime of grief. Since that day, my life has been a complicated blend of happy and sad. It’s … Continue reading Obligatory Year in Review 2018
At the beginning of the month, I took the girls to the Children’s Christmas party at my work where they met Santa for the first time. It was cute but after they had their “first meeting with Santa” I was left with an uncomfortable feeling. I wasn’t sure if it was the fact that it … Continue reading Santa Sadness
