Well, I gave birth to my lastest addition, Sarah Danielle, on Sat May 2nd. She weighed 6lbs, 12ozs and was 19 inches long. Now, I am just learning to balance my day with both her and my four year old, Sophia. It's going to be interesting, but I have faith that I will get it down soon!
I hope that everyone had a great Mother's Day!
This picture was taken in the hospital, not even 24 hours after her birth, she is such a great… Continue

Ok so after endless attempts I have finally made it on here and am super excited! Yeah me! I must first start by telling everyone that I am so not computer savvy at all! Which you probably figured out by my "endless attempts" words previously used. I am very new at all of this and I sure it will take time for me to figure it out but I will get there, some day! Hopefully before society is done with blogging and onto something else.
I will mainly be blogging about life's events that are… Continue

Any other mamas out there with the Monday morning blues? Maybe it's the "let down" after Mother's Day. Who knows. I know I've got 'em bad enough that my daily post today on ChitChatMom
was about wanting to crawl back in bed and pull up the covers.
If you've got those Monday morning blues... leave me a comment and tell me what your excuse is.

Had my oldest son rushed to E.R. right off the school bus on Friday. He was on a field trip, went to see a play at the performing arts center. Watched Cinderella, LOVED IT!! When he got on the bus to come back to school at 10.30 he sat down in his seat and went blank. I mean totally blank!! Doc says he had a seizure. So i had to rush to the hospital and he was unresponsive for almost 3 hours. His eyes were open and he was limp. I was freaking out about to pass out, i thought he was going to… Continue

Please tell me someone saw SNL last night with Justin Timberlake and Andy Sandberg. Absolutely hilarious.
Happy Mother's Day to all my Mommy friends out there! Hope you are all enjoying a wonderful day with your family. I am having a great Mother's Day just relaxing at home. I got to sleep in a little today and tonight we are just grilling which means minimal cooking for me. Yeah!
Yesterday we went out to dinner for my Mom's birthday and Mother's Day and CE was great in… Continue

"A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path." - Agatha Christie
To all my fellow and future Moms out there, I wish you a fantastic and beautiful Happy Mother's Day!
As a tribute to this day I have included a picture of one of my favorite paintings(above) by Mary Cassatt, The Child's Bath, c. 1891.,… Continue

Happy Mother's Day to all you blogging mamas. I hope you all have wonderful, relaxing days with your families.
I've just posted my daily blog on ChitChatMom
and decided since it was Mother's Day it was a perfect opportunity to write a little open letter to my mom.
Have a great day!

Due to some...technical troubles... my blog over at lifeislikethis.com is no longer up & running. I've created a simple little blog over on blogger for now. Blogger is simple enough for me to wrap my little brain around. I know it doesn't really have all of the "perks" one could have with their own domain, etc etc... But it's just dandy for someone like me who has no clue about HTML & all that jazz... and I honestly don't really care to bother learning all that jazz anytime soon. So… Continue

Your Angel Awaits You (author unknown)
A baby asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?"
"Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you." The child further inquired, "But tell me, here in heaven I don't have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy."
God said, "Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will feel your angel's love and be… Continue

Okay, this whole blogging thing intrigues me greatly but I've been a little hesitant about putting up my picture. Call it procrastination or fear of losing the anonymity of being able to speak freely knowing that I will never be recognized in the grocery store as a famous mom blogger. Since there are literally tens of thousands of blogging moms in cyberspace I guess I shouldn't be worried about becoming the latest internet celeb and endangering mine and my families privacy as the paparazzi… Continue

Just posted my daily post on ChitChatMom
and am wondering if the media only shows the "dark side" of motherhood. Sort of seems that way to me. Let me know what you think.

Every time I hear about the death of a young person murdered on the streets of inner-city America, I’m often reminded about the murder of my own brother 13 years ago in St. Louis, Mo. Although most of us are shocked by the brutality inflicted on the streets in urban areas throughout this country, I’m not. I’ve lost my own brother to violence and, as a child growing up in inner city St. Louis, I’ve attended too many funerals to even keep count. Sadly, the only way I am able to remember to this… Continue

I think I spoke to soon on the medication. Jude spent most of yesterday asleep, which made me worry the medication was to much to soon. I called the doctor, and he approved cutting back to 2,1,2. Jude was wide awake this morning so I hope he will be more awake this morning. He was rather comical when I picked him up out of his bassinet. He was so excited to see me he kept smiling, but so hungry he would stick out his bottom lip too. I hated leaving him this morning, but since it's Friday I know… Continue

Last night the T.V. special, "Adventures of an Incurable Optimist" aired on ABC. Michael J. Fox talked to people from all over the world about "the nature of optimism" and talks about his ongoing battle with Parkinson's Disease. What an encouraging and upbeat special. It's a must see! This special aired for an hour. We follow Fox as he meets a variety… Continue

I've become that person, the one that looks at garbage and sees something she could make with it. Repurposing, recycling, upcycling, whatever you want to call it has become a mission. I just finished making a purse out of capri sun pouches.
Having fun with my junk journals too. I've officially learned to sew a binding so some of my journals will be done that way. It's not hard but it is time consuming so only special art journals and gifts to my… Continue
