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.

I was nervous about putting Jamie on the bus for the first time today. It turns out that I had nothing to be nervous about because the bus didn't show up! Jamie was so mad at me. He said, "Mommy, you missed it! You lost my bus!!" It turns out the school didn't get him on the bus roster for today and that's why it didn't come. Try explaining that to a very disappointed four year old. I got him to school, but he was late and got his first tardy. He'll get to ride the bus home. I kind of hate that. I wanted to check out the bus and the car seats in it before I let him ride it, but I won't be there to do that.

On my way home I stopped by the dollar store and picked up some Valentines odds and ends. I'd like to send some small goody bags to school on Valentines Day. I wanted to check out the goodies before they got picked over too badly. They had some cute foam craft sets, which seem like just the ticket. I've got to keep my goodies hidden from Jamie or he'll want them right now. He loves hearts. They're right up there with eggs. Too bad they don't have any heart eggs!
