It’s been awhile…

…Since I wrote about my daughters. This blog started out as a pregnancy blog with Skyler way back in 2007. It made the obvious transition to mom blog but I eventually got out of habit of updating it. Life got busy and crazy and then Layla came along and I just quit writing about this …

Presence

I miss you when I am away Your laugh Your smell Your touch The Golden hazy image of your smile and curls warm my soul I dream of our next moments together Envisioning the wild perfection that you are And then you are next to me The buzz of your breath and voice and body …

Reasons I suck as a mom lately

The other night I got home and was having a pleasant conversation with Ronnie while he was preparing dinner and Skyler interjected “Yay! You’re in a good mood!” and I immediately felt embarrassed and ashamed that it was such a rarity lately that she was excited enough to call it out. To hammer the nail …

This moment in time

My daughters – so alike and so different. And changing so fast. I see the Facebook Memories from 1 year ago to 5 years ago and I’m transported to another world. Even one year ago and I cannot believe how much has changed. So I need to document these things, before they are distant memories …

Coming to Terms

I’m going to come right out and say that some people that might read this post may not relate and some might even be put off by it. Some of the things I’m about to share are things that I’ve always felt I’m in the minority in how I feel and that many people (women …

Facts and Feelings

Needless to say we covered a lot of ground and got a lot of information. The main things we learned about our adventure ahead – Other than her heart …

My Girlfriend

She loves Mickey Mouse, but especially Goofy. I love how she cracks up at his clumsy attempts to remember how to say “Mousketools,” he can never get it right! And despite my best efforts to instill some Tomboy in her, she loves all things princess more and more every day. She comes home and changes …

Difficult Conversations

They are happening frequently with Skyler lately. She is so observant and curious and doesn’t miss a thing. In car rides to and from work/school, I turn on mindless music out of habit. The lyrics have no meaning to me – I don’t even know them or pay attention, I just hear a rhythm in …

Moments of Fall

So, I guess it’s still Fall, and will be till December 22nd! That means I have a Fall birthday this year, and actually, most of December is in Fall this year…what’s up with that? This seems so odd to me… Anyway, we’ve been busy, in a good way, and I don’t really have a lot …

Meh.

Getting stuck at home for too many days out of a week takes it’s toll on my well-being like not many other things in life. Over Thanksgiving break, Skyler caught some bug that has had her puking on and off since Thanksgiving night, and with that long weekend at home and now two additional days …
