I am crushed, empty, and saddened to write this post, but reality has come to where we have to say goodbye. Yesterday, I said goodbye to the love of my life for another six (or so) months as he heads back to Afghanistan to complete his mission. It took everything in me yesterday not to cry, but that quickly shattered as I held him tightly knowing that I would not embrace his hug again for what seems like eternity. It was even harder to see him say goodbye to our son who he loves more then… Continue

It's mothers day. I woke up early at about 7am, and couldn't go back to sleep. Jude woke up right after me so I fed him, and then we lay in bed while he stared at me and smiled. It was a nice beginning to the day. Jude, and I stayed up together for about two hours while Mike slept......yeah yeah he slept on mothers day...ha. It's okay though because I was awake anyway, and really enjoyed my quiet time with Jude. He was very smiley today, and was trying to communicate with me. If I placed him… Continue

I had the privilege of listening to (and even speaking briefly with) Mark Blumenthal, the founder and Executive Director of the American Botanical Council. Mr. Blumenthal reviewed the recent clinical and epidemiological research regarding the health benefits of tea.
It is truly staggering, the increasing amount of research being devoted to the connection between tea drinking and good health. And it is difficult to ignore the daily reports about tea’s potential. Of course, as Mr.… Continue

Well, I gave birth to my lastest addition, Sarah Danielle, on Sat May 2nd. She weighed 6lbs, 12ozs and was 19 inches long. Now, I am just learning to balance my day with both her and my four year old, Sophia. It's going to be interesting, but I have faith that I will get it down soon!
I hope that everyone had a great Mother's Day!
This picture was taken in the hospital, not even 24 hours after her birth, she is such a great… Continue

Ok so after endless attempts I have finally made it on here and am super excited! Yeah me! I must first start by telling everyone that I am so not computer savvy at all! Which you probably figured out by my "endless attempts" words previously used. I am very new at all of this and I sure it will take time for me to figure it out but I will get there, some day! Hopefully before society is done with blogging and onto something else.
I will mainly be blogging about life's events that are… Continue

Any other mamas out there with the Monday morning blues? Maybe it's the "let down" after Mother's Day. Who knows. I know I've got 'em bad enough that my daily post today on ChitChatMom
was about wanting to crawl back in bed and pull up the covers.
If you've got those Monday morning blues... leave me a comment and tell me what your excuse is.

Had my oldest son rushed to E.R. right off the school bus on Friday. He was on a field trip, went to see a play at the performing arts center. Watched Cinderella, LOVED IT!! When he got on the bus to come back to school at 10.30 he sat down in his seat and went blank. I mean totally blank!! Doc says he had a seizure. So i had to rush to the hospital and he was unresponsive for almost 3 hours. His eyes were open and he was limp. I was freaking out about to pass out, i thought he was going to… Continue

"A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path." - Agatha Christie
To all my fellow and future Moms out there, I wish you a fantastic and beautiful Happy Mother's Day!
As a tribute to this day I have included a picture of one of my favorite paintings(above) by Mary Cassatt, The Child's Bath, c. 1891.,… Continue

Happy Mother's Day to all you blogging mamas. I hope you all have wonderful, relaxing days with your families.
I've just posted my daily blog on ChitChatMom
and decided since it was Mother's Day it was a perfect opportunity to write a little open letter to my mom.
Have a great day!

Due to some...technical troubles... my blog over at lifeislikethis.com is no longer up & running. I've created a simple little blog over on blogger for now. Blogger is simple enough for me to wrap my little brain around. I know it doesn't really have all of the "perks" one could have with their own domain, etc etc... But it's just dandy for someone like me who has no clue about HTML & all that jazz... and I honestly don't really care to bother learning all that jazz anytime soon. So… Continue
