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 […]

What are you most thankful for?


With Thanksgiving today I thought I’d take this opportunity to list what I am most thankful for this year. 1. My daughter I’m so thankful that I’m a mom.  There were so many years when all I could do was long to have children of my own.  Then, finally, I had my daughter. Even on those […]

My teeth felt fine BEFORE going to the dentist!


Well hey there everyone!  I am slowwwwwwly lifting my head up and returning to the land of the living after a few weeks in dental hell. Let me catch you up…so last month I went to a new dentist because my previous dentist of 20 years recently retired. New dentist came highly recommended and had […]

Did you make prank calls when you were a kid?


Growing up in the 1980s, when you were bored and wanted to annoy a stranger, a friend, or boy you had a crush on, you could make a prank call. Today, prank calling still exists but it has become way more sophisticated and even dangerous. Making prank calls now may get you arrested. In 2013, […]

Could We Live Here?

Once you have kids, where you live isn’t just about you anymore. You want your kids to have the best possible upbringing. But the elements conducive to an “ideal” upbringing are naturally a matter of debate. Is it important to you to raise your kid in the city, the country, or the suburbs? Many parents […]

@Fruttare @Target #IceCreamStockup

When you crave a treat on a hot summer day, what do you think of? I’m sure many of you would say, “Ice cream!” When I was growing up one of my favorite things about summer was my parents taking us for soft serve ice cream! If we didn’t go out for ice cream we […]

Robin Williams and Suicide Prevention

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. You wonder how someone could be so devoid of hope? Yeah me too. But, I’m also not severely depressed and don’t pretend […]

After three years, I turned off the baby monitor and packed it away. I have no idea how long is “normal” to use a baby monitor. I’m guessing most parents stop using it when their child makes the move to a regular bed. When she was in her crib, as a solid sleeper I always […]
