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.

Kid Rocket Browser

I installed the Kid Rocket browser on our computer today. I absolutely love it. It allows Jamie to play on the computer safely. I can lock the browser so he can't close it down and mess with files on the computer. It's preset to a bunch of kid friendly sites, like PBS Kids. It's easy for small children to navigate without assistance, but keeps them from accidentally wandering off the site. It's a fast, simple download. If you don't like it, you don't even have to uninstall it, just send it to the recycle bin. Best of all... IT'S FREE!
