My poor little boy has been sick since mid-last week. It started with a little congestion and coughing that I first noticed last Wednesday. When he woke Thursday, it seemed worse, so I kept him home. I checked his temp and it was normal, but the cough was really bothering him, so I gave him … Continue reading not again!
As Super Boy and I were brushing our teeth before bed last night, he looked at me in the mirror and - after spitting out his toothpase - said, "Mom... I can't believe you're in your thirties." Me: "Oh, really? Why do you say that?"Super Boy: "Because you look more like, um, 39 or 40." … Continue reading funny kid
My beloved little Super Boy started second grade yesterday. :)He was excited, and a little nervous. He confided to me when I woke him up in the morning that he REALLY wanted JUST ONE MORE DAY of summer. I told him he'd get it on Labor Day. He was so cute, getting his carefully selected … Continue reading back to school
I wanted to let you all know that I decided to create a new blog this week, one that is specifically devoted to our struggle with secondary infertility. I've felt for at least the past year that my AESW blog has become all about this segment of my life, and I wasn't really comfortable with … Continue reading probably long overdue
No, I'm not writing about Mr. I-can't-decide-whether-to-stay-or-go Brett Favre. I'm writing about IUI attempt #4, which took place this morning. As much as I've anticipated getting back on track with our IUI treatments since the miscarriage in May, I've got to admit that I was feeling really nervous this morning. All morning. And when I … Continue reading number four
OMG, I love Facebook! So much so that I've been known to spend an inordinate amount of my online time on it, much to my own detriment at times. I've vowed to cut back, and I have a bit, but I have a ways to go before I will feel like I've achieved the right … Continue reading Facebook friend-iquette
Oh, what a day. It started like many others -- us sleeping in and missing Church (shame on us, shame on us), waking to the sound of rain on the rooftop and making pancakes for breakfast, which we ate in our jammies around the kitchen table. After breakfast, Super Boy relaxed and played some Nintendo … Continue reading when a leisurely family bike ride goes bad
I'm feeling all warm and fuzzy today. Super Man's older sister, her three grown sons and my mother- and father-in-law are currently in Italy. My sister-in-law has been on Facebook posting pictures and status updates daily, and just seeing the beautiful pictures and reading her joyful updates warms my heart. I'm sure I've mentioned this … Continue reading i-ta-ly
Irony kills me. Post-Miscarriage Period #1 showed up on June 15, exactly 1 month after the miscarriage actually began (May 15). Post-Miscarriage Period #2 showed up on July 14, exactly 2 months after I found out I was going to miscarry imminently (May 14). Hardy har har. All that unpleasantness aside, I've been given the … Continue reading i’m ba-aaaaaack!
What the hell is in the water lately? I should say what the hell is in EVERYONE ELSE'S WATER, since it seems like everywhere I go and everywhere I look, there are women sporting baby bumps of varying sizes. I see them everywhere -- except when I look in the mirror at my own babyless … Continue reading bumps everywhere
