Pregnancy and Infant Loss – Rainbow Baby

rainbow

The only reason my daughter exists is because my other babies didn’t make it. A baby born after a miscarriage or loss of a baby is referred to as a rainbow baby. This month we remember all babies born sleeping, or we’ve carried but never met, those we’ve held but couldn’t take home, the ones […]

I’m Still Here

In March I told you I was taking a break from blogging for a while. I needed to step away and refresh myself and take time for me and my family. But that was only part of the truth. It’s been a couple of months of non-stop stress, between work, family, home and health issues. […]

Pregnancy Loss Remembrance

two hearts

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…unless you have lost a child. I honestly do not know how it was just five years ago that I left that hospital without my babies.  On December 17, 2009 at 19 weeks pregnant I went into labor prematurely, the doctors were unable to stop it. I gave […]

The world is a little less funny this week. The death of Robin Williams brings into harsh focus the very serious but too-often-ignored issue of depression and suicide in people of all ages.

What makes an overweight, out-of-shape person spend upwards of $75 to endure 3.5 miles of physical activity they have been avoiding for years? MUD!! And not just mud, but a mud run event, where participants dress as if it were Halloween to tackle a military-inspired obstacle course. Who in their right mind would pay for […]

Editor’s Note: This is a repost of an article that we published way back in 2012 when we just started blogging, and we thought this was important topic to revisit!

Motherhood can be draining. There are days when it feels like the work doesn’t end, when everything has gone wrong, and you are just trying to make it until bedtime. The phrase “If Mama Ain’t Happy Ain’t Nobody Happy” is funny because it’s true. Everyone generally looks to mom to keep the family organized and functioning […]
