Today I wanted to do a small post to thank my daughter Lilia. She is 3 and half years old and very intelligent.
Last Friday, I went to a store pharmacy and had her and my son, a year old, in the cart. She had my cell phone. As I'm about to sign off on the vitamins I had to pick up, I fainted. I couldn't move or open my eyes but I could still hear and I heard my son crying and my daughter was doing her best to comfort him. From what I was told, my daughter gave my phone to the…Continue

It has been quite some time that I have been away from here. I was going through too much and now I feel very sorted at and my mind is clear and ready to work. I did make another blog which at first started out to be a personal diary about my struggles dealing and coming to terms with the death of my son but as I added more posts, people started to read it and become very interested with it that I made it public.
Basically what I started to do, is tell about my story, random rambling…Continue

Recently my husband and I have decided to work on our marriage and we discussed what needed to be changed and what things we need to take another look at.
My husband brought up that he had been thinking about enlisting in the army. Apparently this is something he has always thought about doing and has been wanting to do. I have a close friend who has a husband in the military and he is currently away until January. She is also pregnant and this is a very hard time for her. I can't…Continue

October 15th is a day to honor baby loss.
My son passed away last year shortly after he was born at 27 weeks. I self delivered him in the hospital and while the placenta was coming out...the doctor informed me that he was going to die and there was nothing left for them to do. He weighed 1lb. 14oz. He was moving in my arms when he was born...and the next time I saw him an hour and half later, he was already gone. They baptized him half an hour after he was born.
In my earlier blogs, I stated that my husband and I have separated, for the second time. Unlike the first time, it's already been 7 weeks and we are still not together. The first time I took him back within 3 weeks...BIG MISTAKE. The way I saw it was, nothing will ever change if nothing ever changes, meaning things will stay the same if I do not do something drastic.
My children deserve to have their parents together if they have what it takes to respect and love each other. I know…Continue

I have been potty training my daughter for quite some time and now it seems to have gotten a lot harder. I tried that boot camp potty training thing, I have tried listening to other people like having her wear nothing or take her every 15 minutes to the potty. I have heard that potty training gets hard when something changes in their life, death, separation, serious things basically. She starts preschool soon after she turns three in December and really I am a bit worried she will not be…Continue

I always wondered if the future relationships our children have can be easily affected by the way we as parents handle our own relationships. If it is, is there some way to fix that?
During my senior year of high school, I became pregnant with my first child. My relationship with her father soon ended after…Continue
Potty training is extremely important to me right now since it's hard buying diapers for two. My daughter turns 3 in December and it's taking awhile for her to get potty trained. I understand that when big changes happen in their life, sometimes it sets them back like a new baby or my husband and I getting separated. She has maybe an occasional accident once or twice every couple days. I have read about the 2-3 day potty training boot camp but that involves a lot of time and with a colicky…Continue
For as long as I can remember, I have always heard that children can be greatly affected by parents with stress and depression. People have also said that newborns, infants, toddlers, and young children can feel all the emotions their parent feels and even those hormones can go to the baby through breast milk. Does anyone believe that to some extent?
I was reading an article on The Daily Beast, called "How Stressed Parents Scar Their Kids" by Sharon Begley, and the article…Continue
