Are Child Birth Classes Necessary for Expectant Mothers?

Child birth classes are designed to provide expectant mothers with information so that moms are prepared for labor and delivery.  Every woman will have a different labor and delivery experience, but the techniques used to help minimize pain and prepare a mother for labor are similar.

I remember when I was a first time mom, I didn’t feel that I really needed to attend a child birth class, I had it in my mind that I was going to have a natural birth and knew how…

What No Mommy Should Have to Face - A Prayer for You

This is a very difficult post for me to write. But I am hoping that if any of my readers is facing a similar situation, you will know that you are not alone. My heart goes out to you. 25 years ago today, I received a phone call at work that would forever change my life.



This day started a four day ordeal of doctors, nurses, specialists......and tears. Buckets upon buckets of tears. My almost 11 month old baby boy was gone, one week before what would have been…

Expecting My Second Child - My Birth Story

My second pregnancy was a bit of a surprise as I wasn’t actively trying to conceive.  I found out in February 2000, that I was pregnant and was due October 9th, 2000.  When I was almost 20 weeks, I found out that I was having a little boy.  I was excited and nervous at the same time.  I had that feeling that I was having a boy since my cravings were totally different that my first pregnancy.  Continue reading my birth story at:  …

How to Treat Mommy in an Emergency

It was Saturday morning, so after a long, stressful week I was looking forward to taking a run around the block. By "run" I mean "mostly walk," but I managed to break into a slow jog a couple of times along the way. (I'm not much of a runner. My theory is that my ancestors were royalty from England, so it is not in my blood to be active or athletic in any way. But I occasionally attempt some sort of physical activity in order to avoid dropping dead of a laziness-induced heart… Continue

YouTube Losing A Child

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=K7iZaEP4t3I

While my topic won't be pertinent to most moms - and for that I am so grateful - it will be to some who are hurting or they know a mom who is.  Please help them out by mentioning their child.  It's wonderful hearing the name of our children whether they are here on earth or in heaven; our relationship with them never ever…

Mother's Finding Meaning Again Mission Statement

We are a support group for any woman who has lost a child.  Our purpose is to comfort bereaved mothers.  We offer compassion, conversation, validation, support, spiritual solace and friendship to one another.  At our meetings - and our other gatherings together - no mother ever has to explain why she is suffering or justify why she can't "get over it."  We all know that no mother ever "gets over it" because the sorrow keeps our communion open with our beloved deceased children. But, in the…

Book Review: Call Me Tuesday, by Leigh Byrne

A mother suffering from mental illness.

A little sweet girl who wants nothing more than her mother’s love.

Family members who turn their backs to the blatant horror that is staring them in the face.

Call Me Tuesday was a tough book to read. Based on true events, it is a fictionalized story of what really happened to author Leigh Byrne while…

Blood is Thicker than Water

Yesterday I shared with you my Child Care Woes.  The day care we use will be closed until August 13th for a suspected mold they found in one of the rooms.  On one hand I am happy they take any concerns like this seriously and promptly.  On the other hand I have been worried that I wouldn't be able to find child care for the days I work.  Right now we do not live close to family or friends.  I…

Child Care Woes

Transitioning back into a working mom came with a few obstacles.  Child care was the biggest one I had to overcome.  We no longer live close to family so searching for the right person to watch my only child with the schedule I have took plenty of patience and persistence.  I thought I was good to go.  I had a full time day care center for the week and someone else for the weekends.  What I didn't think of was who to turn to during unexpected times when either of those two options were…

Disney Overload

Too much Disney....While getting dressed this morning, I was on auto-pilot.
"Arms up, Henry. Time to lift your shirt off."
Henry obligingly raises his
arms and then starts laughing.
Henry: Mama! Lookit! I'm like
CINDERLLA!

Yeah, sure- he kind of did look like that scene where she puts
her arms up as she gets her ballgown.

I wonder....does that make me the
fairy godmother?

Baby Bird

Henry was doing his "baby-bird" impression this morning while I was eating
breakfast. When I gave in and gave him a bite of my Strawberry Frosted
mini-wheats, he screwed up his face.

"Ugh! I don't like the HAIRY parts!
I like da FROSTING!"

Life's not all frosting, buddy

God's Treasure Chest

I was reading "All Things Bright & Beautiful" by Herriot while putting Henry to bed tonight and got to the part about this being the best time in your life and you don't realize it. When your children are young and all the wonderful

discoveries and pure joy that can be found amidst the sleep deprivation, revolving diaper changes and temper tantrums.

I just HAD to hug Henry then and I said, "Thank you God for my son" and absolutely, whole-heartedly meant it right then. Henry…

Acquiring Friends

http://www.andbabymakes2.co.il "… acquire for yourself a friend ".It says in Pirkei Avot, (Ethics of our Fathers) … וקנה לך חבר". From everything I've heard, read and listened to, the biggest problem mothers have, especially single mothers, even more than the sleeplessness, the financial hardship, and the loneliness is asking for help.

It sounds so easy, doesn’t it? Well in theory it is. But, after close to twenty years, of…

Little Miss Perfect

I have a sensitive child.  She is beautiful, considerate, intelligent, exceptionally well mannered, and very, very sensitive.

Her sensitivity is one of the things I admire about her the most, and one of the greatest challenges in parenting her.  Besides being the What If Child, she worries mostly about being perfect.  She wants to have the best grades in the…

Adventures in Grandparenting

Grandparents are special people;

  • There are lots of t-shirts complimenting their generosity (If daddy says no, grandpa says yes).
  • We have special days to honor them with house plants & neck ties.
  • They are presented with global awards for their outstanding service (World’s Best Grandparent).
  • They are the most cost-effective child care option and provide a low grandparent-grandchild ratio to provide special…

People Who Live In Glass Houses Shouldn't Throw Stones

As the mother of an 11-year old boy, the news of Jerry Sandusky’s alleged child abuse and the questionable diligence Joe Paterno exercised in reporting the incident  hit close to home.

Needing an outlet for my feelings, I posted the following on my Facebook page immediately after I heard the news:

 I don't care about winning streaks, national titles, or hollow sound bites. That members of the Penn State administration barely raised their hands when faced with eye-witness…
