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 7/8

At breakfast time he cried repeatedly that he wanted waffles and didn't stop until they were handed to him. This happened at every snack and meal.

We had the same battles forcing him to go to the potty when we saw him holding himself. At one point during the day I threatened to take his Eeyore if he didn't go potty and he quickly followed my instruction.

We had to put his clothes back on for him every time.

He didn't want to put his clothes on to go outside and play and I kept having to make him come back in and put clothes on.

There were several minor skirmishes where I had to stop physical fighting. The reasons for the fights and who started them are unknown to me.

Several times I had to stop him from jumping on my bed. I had to grab him to stop him and put him in the floor.

Today was just an average day with the repetitive issues we face on a daily basis.
