Laura replied to Karyn Lewis Bonfiglio's discussion 'Scared of Story Time'
"It may pass. My son was the same way. He's four and a half now and can handle a lot more. Perhaps a social activity that doesn't require sitting still and being quiet would be a better fit for him. He's still awfully small to practice…"

Laura replied to Harriet B's discussion 'Are you conerned about Cleaning Chemicals?'
"I try to keep my cleaning supplies as simple as possible. When I was pregnant with Jamie, my company sent people to clean the carpets. I got very ill and even with the doors open, I felt dizzy and nauseous. I had to keep the doors to the office…"

Laura replied to Mom Bloggers Club's discussion 'Posting Photos: What Camera Do You Use?'
"I really need a new camera. Don't get me wrong, I have loved my camera for many years. It is a Sony Cyber-shot. It only has 3.3 mega pixels. Can you believe that? That's the only reason I want another camera. I love how my camera works.…"

Laura replied to Mom Bloggers Club's discussion 'How Attached Are You To Your Blog?'
"I'm using my blog to document our lives. Somehow it's much easier to blog than to write in a journal or even type in a Word document. I don't know why. I would hate it if I couldn't do it anymore. I rarely have any visitors to my…"

Laura replied to Brandi Best's discussion 'Do you censor yourself on your blog?'
"I sensor myself a lot on my blog. I don't share financial difficulties. I don't share about people online that I'm mad at. I'm not too worried about my family finding my blog, so I've said a thing or two about some of them.…"

Fight Incompetent Cervix
What is your site's URL?
Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I'm thirty one years old. I am married to a wonderful man named Matthew. I have a little boy named Jamie who turned four in August. I am stay at home mom currently. I love it, but wish it paid a bit better.

I have PCOS, have been through infertility and repeat pregnancy loss. I have Incompetent Cervix and I like to spread awareness about this condition to try to save babies.
What is your blogging philosophy?
My blog is just about my life and mostly revolves around my son, Jamie. It is a combination of everything, whether it may be a new recipe I tried, a good freebie I found, something funny Jamie said, or feelings I'm having about life in general. There's little rhyme or reason. I'll never win any blogging awards, but I enjoy writing about our lives and I mostly do it for my son. It's so easy to forget moments over the years. I've got all these little tidbits of our life in print and I hope that someday Jamie can enjoy them.

I called my blog Mother of Life, Mother of Loss because of my issues with pregnancy loss and the joy of finally bringing this wonderful person into the world. Truly, I feel the pains of loss, but you won't see too much of that on my blog. Mostly, I am totally blessed and I am, above all else, a mother of life.
I have been blogging since...

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
