One Year Ago Today

Today is the Twin’s Birthday. Their very first birthday. I am an emotional mess. Their birth didn’t go the way I’d planned or imagined. My girls were taken from me in an emergency C-section and brought to the NICU while I spent the next 24 hours receiving IV’s of pain killers and Magnesium and GodContinue reading “One Year Ago Today”

Love Everyone.

Today’s post is going to be a little different. I don’t normally post here about my faith or morality.

New Nose

Hello 2022! It’s only fitting that I start the new year with a poop story. So here goes. My Twins are obsessed with me. Like crazy stalker obsessed. They follow me everywhere demanding snacks, juice, bubble gum, and hugs whining “Mommy I neeeeeeedd you!” all the while. As you can imagine, they are more thanContinue reading “New Nose”

It Takes A Village…

I’ve always heard the phrase “it takes a village to raise a child” and automatically assumed that translated into directly helping to raise the children. I wasn’t wrong, but I missed part of the value of a village as well. You see, I’ve been struggling lately. Work is amazing, my Husband is doing much better,Continue reading “It Takes A Village…”
