6 months of Cloth

“I feel so violated.” This was the yell that ended cloth diapering with E when he was about 10 months old. Hubs had gone to change his diaper and it wasn’t a fun one. He asked what he needed to do and I told him the routine. That night we went out and bought a …

Setting Goals

For years, I have wanted to start a blog. For years, I have thought about sharing my thoughts, experiences and funny stories with the world. It took C’s diagnosis and Hubs pushing me to actually make this happen. I’m so glad I’m doing it though. I work part time from home. With one kid in …

Is it CMV?

I’ve talked about the process for C being diagnosed as HoH. I guess now is the time to talk about what happened next. Moving forward. In October, while I was pregnant, I flew to see my parents who were visiting L.A. During that time I was able to get acquainted with a cousin who is …

Those Hard Days

Back to School

Bloom where you are planted. Sunflowers are these beautiful, bright flowers that grow all over where I live. They have always been my favorite flower. You see, it doesn’t matter what kind of soil a sunflower seed is planted in, it will thrive. Sunflowers overcome adversity. Every single time I see a sunflower, I smile. …

Book Review Time

I was asked by a friend if I could review and suggest children’s books on some of my posts. Specifically, books that dealt with special needs. I loved the idea! It also made me think. I really have not read a lot of children’s books in this area. It’s not that they don’t exist. I’ve …

unexpected

I have a least favorite sign. I didn’t know that this was possible, but the sign for “No” is my official LEAST FAVORITE SIGN EVER. I actually have a bit of time with just me and C. This is unheard of in the summer months, but A & E are off at church and I …
