I have been reading quite frequently these days and wanted to share another great book with my followers.  I downloaded “Long Time Coming” by Edie Claire on e-book and I loved this book from the very start.  Joy decides to return to her hometown of Wharton when her father’s illness forces her to return.  She left the town of Wharton over 18 years ago, shortly after her best friend Jenny was killed in a horrific car accident just a few days after senior prom.  After graduation, Joy high…

Our Valentine's Day... From my iPhone

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/02/15/valentines-day-from-my-iphone/

Valentine’s Day is by far one of my favorite ‘holidays’ but I’m honestly not sure why.  It could be because of all the $1 crap I get our 2 little boys that excites them beyond words.  Or maybe it’s the excessive eating of chocolate all day that makes my tummy happy.  Or maybe it’s that I get to turn everything…

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:  …

Expecting my First Baby As a Teen Mom

My first pregnancy was a bit of a shock, since I was just 18 years old and just out of high school. I found out that I was pregnant in April of 1996.  I was still living at home with my parents and wasn’t married to my boyfriend.  I knew firsthand that my parents would be very disappointed with me but for the most part my mom was supportive.  It was important that I tell them before they found out on their own, so I told my mom first.  She said she had already suspected something but…

How Patches Lost His Ass

A little over a year ago, I had a momentary lapse in judgment.  Yes, I allowed my daughter to get a pet guinea pig, which was clearly not the smartest decision I ever made, considering that we have a dog who likes to eat EVERYTHING under the sun.  Miraculously, though, the pig and the pooch have somehow managed to co-exist relatively peacefully up until now.  That…

What's a Testimony?

Recently, a friend asked me to share my testimony. I was a taken aback. No one had ever asked me for my story before. Come to think of it, I wasn't so sure I had much of a story to tell. When I hear testimonies of how people had drastic circumstances that brought them to the Lord, I am usually in awe. Former gangsters, former drug dealers, former atheists, former prositutes, orphans, homeless...these are the people that have a testimony, right? I've done plenty of stupid stuff in my…

The Bedtime Story Mooning

One of my absolute favorite things to do with my kids is to read to them.  Since I happen to have a borderline obsession with children's books, I get absolutely giddy when they want to share in my love of literature.   That's why the bedtime story is one of my most treasured times of the day -- that is, until one of my twins decides to moon me right in the freakin' middle of…

A Peaceful Equation

Bedtime with my twinks continues to reach an all-time low around here.  Every flippin' night I threaten to sell 'em off in a 2-for-1 special at a garage sale.  Cause seriously, why did I have to be the one to give birth to the sleepless wonder twins?  I say it's high time I open up a can of 'Serious As A Heart Attack' and take back my nightly mother effin' me-time.  So, here's the equation that I hereby propose:…
