We just got home from our trip yesterday. I have so much I want to write about, but right now, I’m catching up. I want to share some other really great posts with you, and hope you’ll check them out. Are you stressed out by being a mom in the Sandwich Generation? I wrote a post about being a caregiver to my father and my children and how difficult life in the “sandwich generation” can be.  It’s been a stressful couple of years. I hope you’ll read my story and advice for taking care of yourself as a...

Do you have a list of your lamest blog posts? I’m on vacation in NY this week, and I’ve had lots of time to think… I’ve got so much content on my mind, but it seems that whenever I go to spill it on paper, it all just floats away. Poof. Gone. Until the next time I’m busy doing something with the kids, or cannot access my computer. THEN all my great ideas come flooding back. What IS that????? One of the thoughts that has actually stayed in my mind is the fact that, despite my desire to be an incredible creator...

I am so excited about this NICU Moms photo contest with WeMontage! One of the things I really want to write more about is what life was like when we were in the NICU. I talk about TTTS, their birth, and of course Kathryn’s death, the importance of doing what we can to reduce prematurity (March of Dimes advocacy), but I haven’t spent a lot of time actually talking about our NICU experience. Maybe because those were the longest, most difficult 84 days (TWELVE WEEKS) of my life. And unless you’ve been there, it’s so...

Enjoying ourselves immensely this week!         ...

Originally I wanted to post my new gluten free sandwich bread recipe, but I apparently did not take pictures when I made it, nor did I write down all of the ingredients I threw in… and when I went to recreate it, I realized I had NO yeast. That is one of the most important ingredients, so I’ll have to save that recipe for another Tasty Tuesday. This is one of my favorite quick and absolutely delicious chicken recipes! Also gluten free!

I hugged my friend’s brother tightly and for what seemed like forever before we dropped our embrace. “We have to stop getting together like this!” I told him. “It better be like 100 years before we do this again!” We both laughed nervously. “We’ve already made a pact,” he said, gesturing toward his sister. “We’re not going anywhere.” This was our 3rd funeral in 2 years for their immediate family. First, their sister J passed away at just 38 years old. She had been fighting...

Every Newborn Action Plan – Officially Launched on June 30th…   Newborn health. A topic that has pretty much defined me for the past almost three years. Having lost a 2 day old, this is a topic that will never get old to me. No mother should have to watch her baby die… certainly not from preventable causes.   English: Newborn baby Copil Nou Nascut (Photo credit: Wikipedia)   So I am super excited that the Newborn Action Plan has finally arrived! Per Social Good Moms: The Every Newborn Action Plan aims to...

“I could eat this whole pan of meatloaf tonight!” my husband exclaimed. Now if you have the pleasure of knowing my husband in person, he is not exactly the complimenting type. Especially as it pertains to food. I’ve been subjecting them to all kinds of new and delightful recipes on this food journey, most of them unappreciated. But this new meatloaf… SCORE. I didn’t do anything revolutionary. I was just trying to find a way to “hide” veggies to get another serving or two in their food. And I also...
