His birthday is tomorrow, June 6th. He’s turning two. What pulled me here to write a few words about this occasion is the same reason I’m strangely emotional. Two is turning out to be harder for me, as a mother, than one. Nothing about my twin pregnancy and their birth was exciting or relaxing, minus of… Continue reading On the day my youngest was born
B is only four years old (soon to be five in July). But out of those first five years, four of them were really hard. In truth, the easiest year of B’s life was his first one, and even that started to change around 10 months of age, when the screaming and lack of communication… Continue reading An update on B and his behaviors

(Still waiting… Continue reading This is the baby.
Life has been hectic. I’m a rag doll, limbs stretched out in all directions. I can only stretch so far, and yet, I’m managing. I’m parenting 3, teaching 22, nursing 1. Maintaining friendships, my marriage. Attempting (and failing) to maintain my home. Pushing tasks off due to daily exhaustion, and never going back to take… Continue reading This is her.
