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
Well, we have been living in quarantine for over a month now. I would say that I am (surprisingly) coping very well with it all. (My face on the other hand is not...break out city over here!) The trick? AVOID THE NEWS! If anything really vital happens (like the extension of the Stay At Home … Continue reading Pandemic Life
This photo was taken 4 years ago. Look at us, just a happy couple attending the wedding of friends. Yes, I wore a NUDE dress WITH white to a wedding, not a WHITE dress. (The bride wore champagne, so it was no big deal.) Yes, Hubby had long slicked-back hair.....I really don't know what to … Continue reading 4 years ago
Unless you've been practicing social isolation way before this all started, you should all be aware of the COVID-19 pandemic currently happening. It's spread is growing and it's been all over the news and social media. I'm the first to admit that initially, I didn't think it was THAT big of a deal. It was … Continue reading Pandemic
This is a photo of my Sunday afternoon this past weekend. Harper had just woken up from a nice long nap (thank you Daylight Savings). She joined Scarlett, who did NOT take a long nap (thank you Daylight Savings), and I on the sofa to enjoy some Little Baby Bum. While sitting there, I looked … Continue reading Forever Grateful & Forever Grieving
First of all, I would like to thank everyone who wished our son a "happy birthday" on Wednesday. Every text, tag, comment, post, card, Random Act of Kindness done in his name, etc., means so very much to us. It truly means a lot to know that he isn't forgotten and that he is still … Continue reading Asher Turns Three!
Dear Asher Ray, Today is the day our world shattered three years ago, the day we learned that you died and our lives changed forever. It's the day the doctor looked at me with tears in her eyes, shook her head, and confirmed my fears. Tomorrow marks three years since you silently entered the world...your … Continue reading An Open Letter to My Son
