This blog is just about my life and mostly revolves around my son, Jamie. This blog is a combination of everything, whether it may be a new recipe I tried, a good freebie I found, something funny Jamie said, or feelings I'm having about life in general. There's little rhyme or reason. I'll never win any blogging awards, but I enjoy writing about our lives and I mostly do it for my son. It's so easy to forget moments over the years. I've got all these little tidbits of our life in print and I hope that someday Jamie can enjoy them.

I called this blog Mother of Life, Mother of Loss because of my issues with pregnancy loss and the joy of finally bringing this wonderful person into the world. Truly, I feel the pains of loss, but you won't see too much of that here. I am blessed and I am, above all else, a mother of life.

After all the years of infertility and loss, Matthew and I were blessed with a surprise pregnancy. We were pregnant with twins, but unfortunately, Baby A could not stay with us. Baby B grew into a healthy and happy baby girl that we named Bella Marie. We are so blessed to have two beautiful children.

Ahhh, peace and quiet. It's just Jamie and I. Matt will be thrilled when he gets home. Brianna & Dysnisha spent the night last night. We've been over run with kids all week. I don't generally mind, but it really is chaotic.

There is a dark cloud over this peace and quiet, though. Dynisha didn't want to go home. He mother forced her to go home. Brianna called her mother wanting her father to come pick her up and wanted her parents to make Dynisha go home. To keep Brianna happy they forced Dynisha to go home.

Dynisha cried. She said she didn't want to go home because she couldn't play in her room. She couldn't make noise. She had to sleep on the couch. She can't watch anything she wants on TV. I don't blame her.

I'm so sick of my mother-in-law favoring Brianna in every situation. Dynisha has reverted to baby talk and has become extremely whiny. She's having sleep difficulties. It's very frustrating. I hate even more how smug Brianna was about it. She's so proud that she has control over Dynisha and her mother. It makes me feel ill.

I would totally understand if they wanted her to come home for just about any other reason, they missed her, she had work to do, they had plans, etc. My mother-in-law admits she gives into Brianna just to "shut her up." She's doing a major disservice to both girls. How can you favor one child over the other so blatantly?
