One of the scariest things as a parent is having to make a trip to the Emergency Room. It’s been a week since Emerson woke up a 4:30 throwing up. Normally I wouldn’t have been worried but it’s what happened afterwards that was scary. He is the most energetic, rambunctious, wild kiddo. From the second … More He feels better, so much better now!
As Emerson’s third birthday, let me repeat that, THIRD Birthday approaches (I have had every mama feeling there is to have about it) I have been thinking about how truly blessed I am. Emerson saved me. I was not in a good place when I got pregnant, but finding out I was carrying this perfect little … More I wouldn’t have nothing, if I didn’t have you.
Imagine struggling with your weight and image for your whole life. Imagine counting calories, skipping meals, throwing up after almost every meal for years, working out until you almost pass out. Living off liquor, cigarettes and a lot of air. Then imagine getting pregnant with the baby you never thought you would be able to … More FAT
I thought today was going to be a regular day. I needed to take my sister to school, run some errands, clean up around the house, get Emerson ready for therapy on his new day. Just a normal, boring, uneventful day. Marissa and I were running late, as usual…I wonder if we had been on … More Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol’ days
I haven’t updated my Thankful list because there has been so much going on. That doesn’t mean I am not thankful, it just means that I have spent the last few days making phone calls, setting up appointments, having phone consults and am still trying to wrap my head around things and figure out the … More My Sunshine!
November- Men try to grow manly beards. There is food, so much food. Forced family bonding. Macy’s Parade. The countdown…to the countdown to CHRISTMAS! I’m going to do the typical daily Thankfulness posts, but a bit differently. I’ll make a post at the end of each week, full of things I am thankful for. It’s … More All the small things.
I want Emerson to enjoy everything that I wasn’t able to as a child. I want him to always be happy and if he is ever sad I want him to be able to tell me about it. I want him to run wild and puddle jump. I want him to roll down grassy hills … More Twinkle Twinkle little star…Do you know how loved you are?
What do you do when someone else continues to hurt you. A lot. And that person more than likely has no idea. Not because you haven’t tried telling them. But because they don’t care enough to listen. And it’s not like you can just cut them out of your life. Because it is way more … More What would you think if I sang out of tune?
Today at my grandparent’s post-church-coffee-hour-60th-anniversary-thrown-together-shindig-tadoo a mean little girl came up to me and said, “Why are you so BIG and FAT?” I almost punched her. Instead I gathered my things and my son and left. Crying on my way out. Her mommy had invited me to join their MOPS group about 20 minutes before. … More Mind your manners
Summer has always been my favorite season. Especially when we get the long hot summers in Seattle. Since I had Emerson I have changed my tune and LOVE the Fall and Winter! Don’t get me wrong I still love Summer but I am all about oversized sweaters, tall boots, scarves, big pots of soup and … More Boots with the fur!
