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.

Obstacle Chronicles 7/12

It was a fairly easy day. We had no tantrums.

The usual issues with forcing him to go potty. He's been peeing standing up and I taught him how to lift the lid, which makes it easier for him to pee height wise, but also keeps me from sitting on a wet seat.

A few repetitive demands for food.

We went on a trip to deliver a bed to someone. There was a major accident on I40 and we got stuck in it for 3 1/2 hours. We made it a whopping 2 miles in that time.

Jamie fussed a little that he was hungry and he wanted to go home. I was amazed at his patience. He also let me know when he needed to pee and I was able to take him off to the side of the road to pee. I just pulled the front of his pants down far enough to let his penis out and turned him so the onlookers couldn't see his private parts. He had to pee twice. I think he did amazing. Why is he so good at this trapped in the car like that, but we battle at home?
