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.

A Little Spa Treatment at Home

I decided to dedicate a little time this evening just to myself. After tucking Jamie into bed I swept my hair back and applied a peel off mask. While it set I filled a tub of water and Epsom salt to soak my feet in. I watched TV and soaked my feet while gave myself a little manicure. When I was done I gave myself a full pedicure and my feet are as smooth as a baby's bum. I was going to shave my legs, but my husband has promised me the full treatment tomorrow evening. Yeah!

It would be nice to go to the spa and get all this done by someone else, but it still feels pretty good to dedicate a night to myself right here at home. Now I'm heading off to the shower to finish spoiling myself for the evening. Instead of my normal quickie shower, I'm going to make it long and really exfoliate good so my skin is extra soft. When I'm done I'm going to crash. After last night I could sure use a really good nights sleep. Jamie hasn't woke up yet (where's the wood to knock on) and hopefully he won't until I'm done.

Off topic a little...

I emailed Jamie's teacher to let her know how little sleep he had in case he was too tired to make it through the day. She sent a note home with him saying that his eyes were really red when he got to school and that she was glad I let her know what was going on so she didn't need to call me. She said he went to sleep immediately. I assume she meant at nap time, but she didn't specify. He was a little cranky this evening, but we still had to force him to go to bed. He got to sleep sometime between 10:30 and 11:00 pm, which is much later than I would like.
