"OH!"



Her eyes light up as she crawls across my body to exit the bed. Of course, she presses on my bladder as she goes, it wouldn't be a morning wake up if she didn't.



"Z, Daddy is laying right here. What are you doing?," I ask as…

The Pinkeye Express Polishes Silver

An evil wind blew into out house on the breath of the “year of the Dragon”. Evidentially the advent of the Chinese New Year brought a festival of bad juju on my house. We all are just falling apart. Hubs is sick, kids were sick then sick again. Ian is now rounding out the third illness, pinkeye. Or as it’s known around here, “I know it itches sweet boy but If-you-TOUCH- THAT-EYE-AGAIN-AND-SPREAD-THAT-NASTINESS-THROUGH-THE HOUSE-I’LL-CHOP-OFF-THAT-FINGER-AND-FEED-IT-TO-THE-FISHIES!” Perhaps…

Losing a child { Part II } - The emotional ride that comes with it

I previously talked about my daughter's death and the fact that I wasn't able to properly grieve for her. I want to  take a moment now and talk about the emotions and initial shocks that come with losing a child.



  As we have said before, losing a child is never easy. It's a very emotional and shocking moment. When you lose a child you become a passenger on a rollercoaster of emotions that you have no way off. There is no set right emotion or wrong emotion. It's…

Fiber and Fire

Oh my gosh… I can’t stand it! I am obsessed with the craftsmanship and knack for design of this talented mother and daughter team, Patricia and Andrea also known as Fiber and Fire.

I was doing my usual rounds of blog exploration one day and I came across Fiber and Fire on Picket Fence Blogs. The Ad button alone caught my eye.  I clicked on the link and scrolled down each post and several clicks later I was inspired.  Wishing I lived close enough to attend one of…

As a Parent Have YOU Ever Lost Your Cool?

Have you ever witnessed a parent verbally mistreating their child in public? For me, this is the most uncomfortable feeling ...Until recently I was always confused as to how to respond if at all. For the most part I would try to ignore it while in my mind pray for the…

Rules Make You Do Crazy Things

The mind can be a funny thing. Sometimes we make a big deal out of something that turns out to be nothing. We can also tell ourselves it's not a big deal and it turns out that we were way wrong; at least that's how my brain functions!

Is putting laundry away really that big of a deal? Who cares if it piles up to the ceiling? In my mind, it's a daunting task and I despise…

The Mysteries of Life

WAH-WAH-WAH... the alarm clock sounded at exactly 5:30 this morning. Not unlike any other morning, actually. I lifted my hand to stop the madness and a little 4 year old voice came from behind me, startling me out of my must-hit-snooze stupor.



"Finally, someone is awake. I am so happy that you are finally awake. I have been laying here for forever waiting for someone to talk to me and play with me. Why can't cats talk? I keep…

I carry you with me...

Grief, an incredibly heavy word that means something different to everyone it touches.  People push it away, tamp it down, hide from it, or lose themselves in it.  I carry the ones I’ve lost close, tucked away in that special place in my heart.   
 
My grief is still raw from my sister, our family, losing Christian.  It’s a hot, jagged wound right in my core.  Sometimes I swear if I touched my skin on my chest it would burn from the fire…

Losing a child

 I know what it's like to lose a child. I know what it feels like to have your whole world spiral out of control with emotions. I know what it feels like to walk around in a haze. Feeling numb. Thinking there is no way that it is happening. I know what it's like to want just "one more moment" with that child. I have been there. I have lived it. You see, 17 years ago I lost my 2nd daughter, Elizabethe-Ane . I remember feeling so numb. So out of sorts. I can remember hearing a beast like…

Back to Basics

http://singlehoodtomotherhood.blogspot.comFor most of my adult life I worked in real estate.  There are many perks to being self-employed; the hours, the flexibility, the independence. The downside of course is the lack of steady income.  If you are not good at time management or self-motivation it can be really tough.  This is why, industry wide, there are always seminars on how to manage your time effectively, how to…
