There’s a war going on in my house. And it’s all because Anthony’s taste buds are dying? dead? deranged? insane? disturbed?
I don’t know, all I know is they’re just not right! Pumpkin is one of the best flavors in the world when paired with sugar… and chocolate chips (unless it’s pie, because… EW!). [...]
Last summer I discovered a little thing called Instagram. You’ve probably heard of it. If not, you most likely live under a rock. My user name is none other than babblinbrooke22. What else, right?
Here’s a little glimpse into what life has been like… according to Instagram.
It was decided when K was born that all of our kids would be perfect. And they are.
For example: Our kids would never, oh I don’t know, color on themselves or on the walls. And they would certainly never talk back, have runny noses, crusty eye boogers, or unkempt hair. Spitting is rude [...]
The bets are brewin’ at the dentist’s office, I know it. There’s a pot with my name on it! The pot that all the hygienists, office personnel, and even the dentist herself is throwing money into…
I’ll bet you anything she will be back!
Unfortunately, they’re RIGHT!
Let’s rewind a bit. A few weeks [...]
There’s an old saying that goes something like this…
Use it up, wear it out.
Make it do or do without.
I am pretty much the poster child for this saying. Maybe not so much because that’s how I would choose to have things go. It’s more so the fact that I have to live [...]
There are times, probably more often than not, that I doubt myself as a mom.
Am I doing right by these precious souls that have been entrusted to me? Am I teaching them the things that Heavenly Father would want me to teach them? Am I doing enough to let them know how much [...]
…My SIL texted back saying she was so excited.
I woke Anthony up for good around 5:30 to let him know he would need to find a replacement to speak for him in the other ward.
At 6:22 am I texted my SIL again letting her know that the contractions were getting much closer [...]
4:48 pm… First contraction.
Things really started rockin’ from there.
Got to the hospital later that night and just after midnight Baby B was born…. without an epidural!!
That’s how it would have gone in a perfect world.
This is what really happened:
Picture it… my cousin’s [...]
I try not to complain too much, I really do. The fact is, I have really great pregnancies… or at least I used to. Aside from a preeclampsia scare with K, the first three of my pregnancies were amazing!! No morning sickness, no abnormal pains, nothin’! So maybe I gained a bit too much weight [...]
Ever since I decided to try this whole natural labor thing I’ve discovered a few things.
I realize that this is baby number six and in theory I should know a few things about laboring and delivering. Sadly, I am ignorant.
Ignorant to the fact that I actually have choices! Real ones!!
