Beautiful Struggles

For the first time since my first miscarriage, which was 2 years ago, I feel alive.1ef3047eecdc51a911da68d0cb8c681a I was on the phone with my sister last night and I told her that for the first time it feels better to be awake then asleep. That one statement says it all. I want to be apart of the world instead of dreaming of alternate moments. I am happy to experience the down falls of the day, as well as, the every day moments of life. For the first time in years, I feel as though I have a control of my depression, not the other way around. I’m no longer mad at my children for their dependency of me. It isn’t their fault they need and want me. I am their mother: a burden that I no longer regret. I am proud of myself for picking up the pieces of my shattered life. Continue reading

Sparks of Life

Wow. It’s been awhile, huh?

I guess my mind needed a rest. Or, maybe, I didn’t have anything to write or felt as though I had nothing to write.

Life here has been no more hectic or drama filled than in the past. Life is always throwing curve balls. I had another miscarriage. My third. Again …

Tomorrow is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day. It’s a bittersweet cause that is striving for awareness: to help those to know that they aren’t alone. But, aren’t we?

To Scream or Not To Scream?

I may or may not want to scream into a pillow.

No. I take that back. I do want to scream into a pillow.

Today, has been one of those days that my children can’t seem to function effectively without requesting something every two minutes. I really want a second alone. I really want space. It is getting close to their bedtimes and I have this unnerving sense that it will not go down when scheduled.

These boys have sensors that detect that mommy’s personal bubble is slowly releasing fumes and must insist to hurry along the process. Continue reading

Don’t You Dare Nap.

Naps are beautiful little gifts to parents all around the world. Those blissful, silent precious moments that you tell yourself that you will catch up on that load of laundry, clean the bathroom, or even get in a work-out. But, in reality, it’s when we shove that last piece of cake that was hidden in the fridge into our mouths or accidently pour wine into our cup and 575802_3380752316578_559544546_nmagically appear on the couch surfing the channels. Yet there is a time during the day when naps are forbidden. You know when I am referring to. That toddler of yours that has been refusing to lay down during his scheduled nap time is slowly approaching that forbidden time with big yawns, wimpy cries, and zombie-like movies. We scrabble to find interactive games: peek-a-boo, throwing the ball, coloring, painting, dancing. ANYTHING that will keep those eyes open. However, it is a futile battle. One that you will loose. The afternoon nap is approaching and will conquer the fidgeting toddler into a blissful rest.

I hate afternoon naps.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the beautiful sound of sweet nothingness. But, do not take a nap after 3 P.M. or I will hurt you. Do not wake up right before dinner is about to be served, agitated that your nap was interrupted by the sweet smells of lasagna. I do not want to stay up, half alert, on the bed with you while you are throwing matchbox cars on the floor and sticking puzzle 148720_3402702305314_1644583959_npieces in my hair. I understand that you are well rested. Bless you. But, do not accept Mommy Pinterest after 8 P.M. There will be no fun night themed games. Although, you may be able to play in my make-up bag because I will be too tired to care. You are very lucky that you are not put into your room with the door shut and left on your own accord. I will at least let jump over mommy and daddy while we snore into oblivion, play with my phone and allow you to hack and post mommy’s secret pictures on her Facebook wall, and maybe make a phone call to NASA to blabber away about Pocoyo.

Wait. Maybe this has been your plan all along. You’ve been waiting for that moment to buy the daddle that you have been eyeballing no toddler ever have.

How To Make Clickable Social Media Icons

I have recently made the move from Blogger to WordPress.com and was having a bit of difficulty learning the new format.

One of the first things I wanted to do on my new blog website was to add clickable social media icons.

Below, I have posted a video tutorial on how to do this through WordPress.
