It still amazes me that we have gotten to his fourth birthday. How time has just continued to speed right along even though part of me is still, and will always be, in that hospital room with my son four years ago. By now, I know what to expect of his birthdays. I know that … Continue reading Asher’s 4th birthday
This past weekend I went to my parent's house to clear out my "treasures", all the things my mom saved from my childhood, from their basement. They are cleaning house and after almost 9 years of marriage, finally made me take the things they were holding for me. It was fun to see some of … Continue reading All according to plan….except not
Instagram Top 9 from 2020....that watermark is there because I wasn't paying $0.99 to remove it. #cheap Ahhh, 2020…. There is just soooooo much to say about you. We all know the major points so I won’t go into rehashing those. It has been a tough year for everyone with all that has been going … Continue reading Obligatory Year in Review – 2020
Earlier in this pandemic, I was staring at Asher's hand and foot molds, along with the little baggie of dark brown hair in his shadowbox and I started to panic. What if, God forbid, our house goes up in flames?! Those few physical items of his will be gone too. I fixated on this idea … Continue reading Fear of Losing Him…Again
First of all, this movie (Enola Holmes on Netflix) is really cute and Henry Cavill is, well, GORGEOUS! So there is that. Second of all, I am him in this meme. Prior to this year, I didn’t really care about politics because this world suits me. I’ve lived a good life as a middle class, white … Continue reading Don’t Talk About Politics
When I look at the girls now and I look at their baby photos, I can see glimpses of their current faces in those sweet little baby faces. I think it's cool how you can do that, how you can see glimpses of who they would become back when they were just tiny little things. … Continue reading I can’t “see” him
I have written about this topic before back in August 2019, right before the girls turned one. Lately, it's been on my mind and the question has come up often. In my previous post, I talked about the fact that we ultimately decided, if we were open to more children, we would not go back … Continue reading Do You Think You Will Have More?
It happened. That moment where parenting is just too much and you have an emotional breakdown. Up until now, I think I've done fairly well with handling the overwhelming moments of raising twins. I keep it together when two children are crying at me or making that awful toddler whining sound (Seriously, what is THAT?!). … Continue reading Leaping off the Emotional Cliff
We signed our girls up for Dolly Parton's "Imagination Library". Each month the girls get a new book (for free) in the mail. So far they have loved every book they've gotten, asking us to "read again" immediately after finishing it. (The Little Excavator has been the biggest hit and spurred an obsession with visiting … Continue reading Just Like My Brother
