The day I met my second daughter

DECEMBER 2012

I spent the whole month of December praying that Baby S would be late. I was dreading the newborn stage. Plus, we did not know her name at this point (I wanted Scarlet, Eric wanted Fiona, neither of us liked each other's favorite name [I did not want my daughter's name to invoke the image of Shrek!!

T Minus 2.. or 3.. or 9

So, these last days leading up to the baby’s estimated due date have been quite the emotional whirlwind for me.

Of course, like every other mama on the brink of giving birth, I have been totally anxious to feel the beginnings of labor, or receive SOME sign that the baby has decided to make his way into this world. And like every other wishful VBAC mama, I have been especially anxious, hoping that this baby’s birth might be different from my first baby’s.  In search of giving my son…

Holiday weekend brings thoughts of daunting fall schedule ahead

It's a holiday weekend. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and I have the day off.

I should be ecstatic. Instead, I'm fighting the blues. It's silly, I know. But end-of-summer time always does this to me. I absolutely love summer. I love the sun on my face, I love my little flower garden, and I love the lazy, slower schedule.

Tomorrow, the kids go back to school. And that means it's back to packing lunches, helping with homework, volunteering in the…

Organizing your help following childbirth. Do it early!

Oh what I would give to go back in time and rethink how I would spend those early days with my precious newborn! I can’t, but I can pass on great information that I’ve since learned would have put us on a much better beginning.

It’s kind of funny now how incredibly naive I was when it came to the immense responsibility of around the clock care. We genuinely thought we could handle a baby waking every 2.5 hours to eat, 24 hours a day.

Facing My Fears in Pregnancy

I have this repeated dream that I am lying strapped down to an operating table, people are moving quickly around me but ignoring my cries of pain. I pass out and its the end of me. The next thing I know I'm looking at myself from above the operating table. I'm gone and my husband is crying. Then I wake up and realize I should be laying in a different position or I should prob myself up a little more and my sciatica pain goes away at least for 10 to 15…

Tonight, though I obviously have 107,000 things that I ought to be doing, I have baby on the brain.

Anyways, apparently , I am in that stage of Motherhood where I have 2 perfect daughters and I am undecided about a third. OK, lets' be honest, brutally honest. Let's just rip… Continue
