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.

Toilet Paper Roll Bunny

Since Easter is coming up, I though I better get to making some decorations for the house. We started with the toilet paper roll bunny.

Get an empty toilet paper roll and glue cotton balls to it, covering it completely (or as completely as your little one can manage). Cut ears out of a piece of white foam. Cut out the inside of the ears with white paper and color the paper pink. You could use pink paper, but kids love to color, so why not let them? Glue ear pieces together and then glue them to the inside of the toilet paper roll. Add googlie eyes. Add two pink puff balls for the nose/cheek area. Cut a mouth out of black foam and glue it, too. Add another pink puff to the back for a tail.

Clean up was a breeze since I had him work on newspapers.
