FAMILY Your extended family will get tired of babysitting. I’m not saying they won’t babysit, but prepare yourself for a few reluctant yes’ and your call going straight to voice mail.

Come Again?! (Part One of “Expecting A Baby”)

On March 18, 2013 my husband and I were beyond excited to attend our first ultrasound appointment. The thought that we were having another child was a little overwhelming but amazing at the same time. Now closer to 2 years old, we wanted S Dot to have a partner in crime. This crawling on the floor and being his main form of entertainment was becoming a bit much. Plus, I often tell people that I am not sure how I could have survived childhood without my little brother.

I’m Tired of Being Pregnant

My first pregnancy with S Dot could be considered a sweet dream compared to the experience I am having with twins. Sometimes I blame my attitude. Not a day goes by that I don’t question, “How the hell am I going to raise three boys?” I know, I know…this is a blessing. I should be happy, right? Well you tell that to my swollen hands, face, feet, ankles and legs. I look like a drowning victim. Tell that to the very active 5.5+ pound boys weighing down on my pelvis  with so much pressure it feels as if someone dropped kicked me in the vagina. Tell that to the sciatic...
