My stomach is growing. It feels sore in the muscles as if I did 1,000 sit ups yesterday. I feel good. Well, I feel tired. Exhausted actually but I know that is a good sign so I’m very happy to feel this way. I feel more confident each day. One way I keep myself moving … Continue reading I have faith.
We’ve been having some pretty rough weeks with P lately. I’ve become aware of these changes that she gets when I believe her brain is going through major development. A mental growth spurt really. She gets very antsy, unfocused, doesn’t listen (dramatically more so than usual), defiant and cranky. She also becomes more interested than … Continue reading When all else fails…
I felt like today we got through a big mile marker in the pregnancy.My doctor does something unique when doing pregnancy checks. You go in one day to do blood work to confirm your at home pregnancy result. If it’s positive you return a few days later within that week to do blood work again … Continue reading The First Gate Check
Against my mother’s advice I’m going to write about our latest news. I’m pregnant. It’s still very early, I think the farthest I’d be along is almost three weeks….if my calculations are accurate.

We kicked the ball back and forth and kept it away from one another….. Then she played with the nets, which is really … Continue reading Soccer n Sprinklers
On Wednesday we joined our neighborhood gang at Sycamore Canyon for dinner. We were suppose to camp out with them but I’ve been exhausted lately. D was on a three day shoot, I dealt with the cable guy all morning and I just didn’t have it in me to rent a tent, etc. We….I haven’t … Continue reading Tick bites
I was a late comer to Facebook. I figured I was already in contact with the people I still wanted as friends. I didn’t want to go back to certain periods of my life. Then one day as I was walking past the baseball field at Pierce College I yearned for my athlete friends from … Continue reading Tennis Friends
P had a fever over the weekend. It’s the first time she has had a fever of 104 and been lethargic. Usually it’s mild fever but her behavior remains the same. It started on Saturday morning and lasted until Monday night. We kept it at bay with Tylenol, rarely used in our home. It was really … Continue reading Fever
I got my lesson planned. I had all the websites ready to explain to P why the sun went to bed so late in the summer. As I tried to breakdown how to explain all this science to a 2.5 year old I realized that I needed to start with the basic concept like day … Continue reading It Worked!
