Is Lego Building a Controversy?

Okay, so we all know girls typically play with dolls and boys typically play with trucks. But what about Legos? Who is supposed to play with those? If you've been shopping lately you may have seen the new line Lego has created for girls. Lego thinks it has done something great, but not everyone agrees. Why? Check out my blog at…

Infant Open Heart Surgery

Today I found out my 2 month old son needs open heat surgery due to he has a large hole in his heart. Its called VSD and I am scared to death. I am 20 years old and I never thought this would ever happen especially where my daughter never had any problems. I am trying to stay calm for my children but it seems hard. But it feels like a sense of relief that he is getting the surgery just because I worry everyday for him. Like is he eating good, hows his breathing, is sweating while he eats and…

Dear Baby Princess,

Apparently even princesses with 4 teeth need to go to the dentist.

So you had your first appointment over the holidays.  In case you ever want to know the very first time you went to the dentist, it was Friday, December 30, 2011.  It wasn't even on my radar that a 1-year-old needed to go to the dentist until I started reading it as a to-do item in parenting magazines.  When…

What do you think?

I have been a mom for only four months and some days and I have to say I love love love it. I never thought that the most challenging career in the world could be the most rewarding. When I found out that I was pregnant there was no doubt in my mind that I wanted this baby with all my heart however, my boyfriend of four years could not have been more upset.

He is not in the picture and even now there are times when I feel like I am ruining my daughter's life by not being able to…

I Love You Through and Through.

I Love You Through and Through.

Two years ago today, after twenty six grueling hours of labor, I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl.  She weighed 7lb, 2oz and had a full head of jet black hair.  She was, and still is, the most beautiful thing I've ever laid eyes on.  G has forever changed the way I see the world.  Happy…

Potty Training is Going Down the Toilet

  I never thought getting someone to do their business in the potty would be hard. I always heard how difficult potty training can be but I always thought parents were exaggerating. Nope, they weren't. It's hard, yep, and frustrating might I add. My master plan was to have my two and a half year old potty trained by Christmas. Go ahead and laugh. Santa Claus has left the building and we are not potty trained.

  My daughter actually did her first deed in the potty months ago at…

From the Pit to the Palace.

From the Pit to the Palace.

Another year, another month, another fresh start.  The beginning of the year is a time for resolutions and reflection on the prior twelve months.  It's funny to me how so many people vow to not make resolutions because they don't "believe in them" or they fear breaking them.  However, these same people set new goals for the year ahead and hold to the hope of meeting those goals.  But isn't…
